Week 4at Seattle
With Detroit behind in a game yet again and the running game providing no help, Matthew Stafford was forced to throw the ball often in the home loss to the Broncos last Sunday night. Of Stafford’s 45 attempts, 13 went in the direction of Calvin Johnson. Despite being shadowed by Aqib Talib all night, Megatron finished with eight grabs for 77 yards. He has 20 receptions in the first three games, but just one score. The Seahawks will most certainly shut down the Lions ground game again on Monday night, so it could be another frustrating game for the offense. However, regardless of the opponent and situation, Johnson is a must-start.
