Scouting report

DET WR Calvin Johnson - Week 10, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Green Bay
Detroit QBs threw the ball 38 times two weeks ago in London in the loss to the Chiefs, with 10 of those passes going in the direction of Calvin Johnson. Megatron finished with five receptions for a team-high 85 yards before leaving in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. The week off allowed him to rest and he continues to be the team's most consistent offensive player, averaging 82 yards per contest. Despite the problems with the Lions, Johnson should be inserted back into your starting lineup after the bye week.

DET WR Calvin Johnson - Week 8, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Kansas City
After catching a 46-yard pass early in the contest versus the Vikings last week, Calvin Johnson was held to just four other receptions for 40 yards in the loss. Megatron did grab his third TD of the season and has scored in two straight games. In the past two weeks, Calvin has had his two best yardage games of the season, totaling 252 yards. The Chiefs are allowing 264 yards per game through the air, so keep on starting Johnson.

DET WR Calvin Johnson - Week 7, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Minnesota
Matthew Stafford threw for over 400 yards last week against the Bears, with Calvin Johnson turning in his best performance of the season. Megatron was targeted nine times, resulting in six catches, 166 yards and his second score of the season. After not seeing many deep balls from Stafford over the first five weeks, Calvin caught three passes of more than 35 yards on Sunday, including a 57-yard jump ball to set up the winning field goal. Expect to see more bombs to Johnson, who had 10 receptions for 83 yards and a TD in the Week 2 loss to the Vikings.

DET WR Calvin Johnson - Week 6, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Chicago
The Detroit QBs threw for 379 yards in the loss to Arizona last week, but Calvin Johnson finished with a pedestrian five catches for 67 yards. Golden Tate led the team with 18 targets, followed by Theo Riddick’s 13. It has been a disappointing season for the Lions and Megatron owners, as he’s averaging just 64 yards per game with one total TD. The Bears have given up just 186 yards per game through the air, but there’s no question Johnson is a must-start every week.

DET WR Calvin Johnson - Week 5, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Arizona
Calvin Johnson came within a whisker of putting the Lions ahead late in the fourth quarter last Monday night. But as has been Detroit’s case this season, it was not meant to be as Kam Chancellor knocked the ball out of Megatron’s arm just before he crossed the goal line. Calvin led his team with seven receptions for 56 yards in the loss and is averaging over 11 looks per game from Matthew Stafford. Despite just one score this season, you’re always going to start Johnson, even against Patrick Peterson and a solid Arizona secondary.

DET WR Calvin Johnson - Week 4, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.

DET WR Calvin Johnson - Week 3, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Denver
After catching just two passes in Week 1, Calvin Johnson registered 10 grabs for 83 yards and a TD in the loss to the Vikings last Sunday. Matthew Stafford threw the ball 53 times, with 17 of those passes going in the direction of Megatron. While Stafford is beat up, he should be able to play on Sunday night to face a good Denver defense. Johnson is a must-start in any format, regardless of the QB.
