2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald says Calvin Johnson is the top fantasy wide receiver entering 2012 and we’ll take his word for it. The beast known as Megatron posted career highs across the board in 2011, with 158 targets, 96 receptions, 1,681 receiving yards and 16 touchdown passes, finishing the season as the top ranked fantasy wide receiver with a whopping 16.5 FPts/G. If you’re looking for something to quibble about, it would be Johnson’s production during a five game stretch between Weeks 10 and 14 when Johnson failed to top 100 receiving yards in any game and caught just one touchdown pass. Other than that, it was all sunshine as Johnson hit double-digit fantasy points twelve times and topped 100 receiving yards eight times. Since Johnson has the ability to regularly beat double and even triple teams, he is basically money in the bank given his lack of missed time during his five-year career (just three missed games). The only potential red flag is the health of quarterback Matt Stafford, who put together his first 16 game season in 2011. Megatron needs to be the first wide receiver off the board in 2012 and he makes for a solid 1st round pick. No other wide receiver is even close.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Eric Ebron exits with knee injury     -- Tue Oct 6 9:12 am --

Lions TE backed up by journeyman Tim Wright
Eric Ebron exited Monday night's Week 4 game against the Seahawks with a left knee injury. He was replaced in most sets by veteran TE Tim Wright. (Rotoworld)

FF Today's Take: TE Brandon Pettigrew missed Week 4 with a hamstring injury. Ebron was hurt while blocking when C Travis Swanson tumbled into the side of Ebron's leg. Luckily, Ebron pulled his leg out while Swanson was falling on it, but it had the looks of a bad sprain. Before exiting midway through the second quarter, Ebron caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards. This comes as a big blow to an offense looking for consistent targets aside from Calvin Johnson. Wright isn't worth a waiver wire pick.
Calvin Johnson not getting deep looks in offense     -- Tue Sep 29 9:40 am --

After an opening week where Calvin Johnson saw four targets, the Lions used him heavily the past two weeks. But it has been on primarily short and intermediate routes instead of the downfield patterns he used to be targeted on. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Teams have been double teaming Johnson for years, bringing cornerbacks inside and safeties over the top. Yet with coaching staffs past, the Lions had no problems tossing the ball to the 6-foot-5 receiver in jump ball situations. It helped lead him to the single-season NFL receiving record in 2012. Megatron turns 30 on Tuesday and the "mismatch" wide receiver is being prevented from making as many game-changing plays.
