Calvin Johnson continues fantasy hot streak on Thanksgiving

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Megatron is still pretty good at football, in case you've forgotten. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson just can't be stopped. Against the Houston Texans on Thanksgiving Day, Megatron hauled in eight catches for 140 yards and one touchdown. He got 17 targets as the Lions essentially abandoned the game (Matthew Stafford had a comical 61 pass attempts).

The Lions would go on to lose a heartbreaker, falling 34-31 in overtime.

Fantasy Impact: Megatron now has four straight games with at least 100 yards and caught a touchdown in three games. His early-season struggles are now a distant memory.

There's not much to add here, fantasy-wise. Megatron is still the best receiver in the league and should be starting every week in every league. The Lions host the Colts in Week 13.
