Lions WR Calvin Johnson nets 77 receiving yards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught eight passes for 77 yards on 13 targets in Sunday's 24-12 loss to the Broncos. 

The Detroit offense has been abysmal through three weeks, and no player has cracked the 100-yard barrier in a single game. Johnson does have 30 targets over his last two games, but he's been nearly as inefficient as the rest of his team, and his Week 4 matchup (at Seattle) is brutal.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson nabs first TD of season in loss
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson reeled in 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

What a difference a week makes. After being targeted just four times in Week 1, Johnson saw 17 passes come his way on Sunday. The next step up will be to generate more production off of that level of exposure. Johnson is averaging just over 10 yards per reception thus far this season, more than four yards below his career low. He'll be counted on to stretch the defense and open things up underneath and in the running game for Detroit.

Lions QB Stafford: Calvin Johnson is great, want to get him ball
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will be a huge feature in the team's offense in Week 2, despite his subpar performance last week.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford said of Johnson: "You have a great player like that, you want to get him the ball as much as you can," Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Johnson disappointed in Week 1 with just two receptions for 39 yards. His four targets trailed both Golden Tate and Eric Ebron who had eight and five passes come their way, respectively. It's dangerous to put too much weight into one game, but it warrants monitoring how the Lions' targets are divided up in the coming games. Throws speak louder than words.

Lions star WR Calvin Johnson taken aback by four-target game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Lions All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson actually spoke no words Wednesday when asked if there was ever a situation in which he should get only four targets in a game, which was the case Sunday.

But he said a mouthful with a hearty laugh.

"I mean, I think the laugh should say it all," he told MLive.com.

In other words, he wants the ball thrown his way far more than it was in a Week 1 loss to San Diego in which he caught just two passes for 39 yards. But he's not about to raise a stink over it during a game.

"I'm not going to argue with anybody on the sideline," he said. "But, you know, I will tell them what I see so that in certain situations, we come back to this situation, (quarterback Matthew Stafford) might have that in the back of his head what we talked about earlier."

Lions WR Calvin Johnson itching to see game action
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is raring to go after sitting out the entire preseason for the first time in his nine-year NFL career.

“I’m really looking forward to getting out there and going against somebody other than my own teammates,” he said, per the team's official website. “They kind of get the edge on you at some point during camp because you’re running a lot of the same plays. It’ll be good to go against some fresh blood.”

Johnson is three seasons removed from setting an NFL record with 1,964 receiving yards in 2012. Although he has had some injury issues the last two seasons, Johnson feels he can still put up elite numbers.

“No doubt,” he said. “I’ve still got it in me, man. I know I’m going to turn 30, but the body feels good right now.”

Johnson's teammates and coach aren't buying a decline either.

Quarterback Matt Stafford said Johnson is 'doing all the stuff he’s always been able to do. He’s the same old guy to me.”

Coach Jim Caldwell is also eager to see his star receiver in action Week 1 against the Chargers.

“Take at look at him (on Sunday), you’ll see. I know one thing, he’s well-rested," Caldwell said.
