Calvin Johnson turns in season-worst fantasy performance on Sunday

US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Calvin Johnson had just 54 yards receiving on five receptions during Sunday's game between the Lions and the Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Calvin Johnson had just 54 yards receiving on five receptions during Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and the Minnesota Vikings. Johnson, uncharacteristically, did not look sharp in the loss. He had several drops, including a potential touchdown in the first half.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson's day was pretty "meh," which qualifies as an outright disaster by his lofty standards. He dropped two passes on the Lions' final drive alone, though a blow to his helmet in the second half may have left him more shaken than he let on. Johnson is still a must-start WR1 going forward. The Lions thankfully have a bye week to get healthy and hopefully come back regrouped in Week 6.
