Calvin Johnson has quiet Week 2
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Lions receiver Calvin Johnson played well in Week 2 at Carolina, but he didn't have a dominant game against the Panthers.

Johnson had six catches for 83 yards on 13 targets. He nearly came down with a touchdown, but he failed to score his third touchdown of the season.

Johnson will look to get back to posting monster stats in Week 3 against Green Bay.

Calvin Johnson scores twice in vintage opening-week performance
by Igor Mello |

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson had another monster performance, scoring twice during Monday's season opener at home against the Giants in Week 1.

Johnson made it look easy against New York's secondary. Matthew Stafford somehow found Johnson absolutely wide open for a 67-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the game. He then made a leaping grab for a 16-yard touchdown on the following drive. Johnson caught seven of the 11 passes thrown his way for 164 yards and a touchdown, averaging 23.4 yards per grab in a 35-14 victory.

Since the start of the 2010 season, Johnson has an NFL-best 21 touchdown receptions on passes thrown 15-plus yards downfield. He has also cracked the 100-yard mark in 22 of his past 34 games. Johnson surpassed the 150-yard mark for the 13th time in his career.

He'll look to build on his opening week performance come Week 2 at Carolina.

Calvin Johnson seeking revenge game Week 1 vs. Giants
by Igor Mello |

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson had one of his worst performances of the season last year against the Giants. He'll be seeking a revenge game at home in Week 1.

Part of the reason why Johnson disappeared in a Week 16 meeting against New York last season was because of his nagging knee injury. In that meeting he was targeted four times and finished with three receptions for 43 yards in the first half, ending the game without a pass thrown his way in the second half and overtime. Johnson is finally back at 100 percent and has been practicing regularly leading up to the opener, so things should be a little different this time around.

Johnson cracked the 100-yard mark seven times last season, four of which came at Ford Field. As always, regardless of the matchup, Johnson is an elite Fantasy option and should be in the starting lineup at all times. After all, you didn't draft him the first round to keep him on the bench.

Calvin Johnson plans to practice regularly this season
by Larry Hartstein |

Due to knee and finger injuries, Lions receiver Calvin Johnson was barely practicing by the end of last season. He said things will be different this year because his body "feels good," reports the Detroit Free Press.

Johnson participated in nearly every training camp practice. Practicing regularly during the season will help his timing with quarterback Matthew Stafford, said Johnson, who expects to get back over 1,500 receiving yards.

"We're definitely going to see, but I've done it before so you can't say that it's out of reach," Johnson said. "But like I said, our biggest thing is to win and win our division."
