Calvin Johnson secured 4-of-6 targets for 53 yards in the Lions' Week 15 win over the Vikings.

The Vikings had never used usual RCB Xavier Rhodes to shadow an opposing No. 1 receiver entering this game. But they did on Sunday and Megatron was bottled up, struggling to get openings against Rhodes' physical press. It was a disappointing day for Megatron. Perhaps it will be too late for his fantasy owners, but Calvin will be a virtual lock to rebound in Week 16 at Soldier Field.

Calvin Johnson caught 8-of-9 targets for 158 yards and a touchdown Week 14 against the Bucs.

Johnson started the game by beating Bucs RCB Johnathan Banks on a fade route for a touchdown in the first quarter, and was unstoppable after that. Johnson got open almost at will, and now has 304 yards and three touchdowns the last two weeks. He is back to being Megatron and will be high-end WR play against the Vikings Week 15.

It was just too easy for Megatron, who feasted on Bears rookie CB Kyle Fuller all afternoon long. Johnson split Fuller and S Brock Vereen for his first score, and pasted Fuller in the end zone for his second. Johnson was running free over the middle of the field all afternoon long. Locked and loaded for the stretch run, Johnson is going to be a beast for the fantasy playoffs as Detroit makes its way through a soft schedule.

Nov 24 - 3:35 PM

Calvin Johnson secured 4-of-10 targets for 58 yards in the Lions' Week 12 loss to New England.

Megatron primarily squared off with Brandon Browner, while Darrelle Revis handled Golden Tate. Johnson's cause wasn't helped by Matthew Stafford's erratic accuracy, but Megatron contributed to Detroit's offensive disarray with a pair of drops. Expect Johnson to bounce back down the stretch, as the Lions have a string of cupcake matchups in their final four games of the fantasy season. They'll square off with the Bears on Thanksgiving next.
