Calvin Johnson sets another mark, remains elite fantasy WR for Week 16

USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is the first receiver in NFL history to have consecutive seasons with at least 1,600 yards. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has set another milestone. Johnson on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals has 10 catches for 121 yards to become the first receiver in NFL history to have consecutive seasons with at least 1,600 yards.

Marvin Harrison and Torry Holt are the only other receivers to have two 1,600-yard seasons in their careers. Johnson said after the game (via The Detroit News) that he considered the mark an accomplishment but said the team's record this year "overshadows a lot of things." Johnson remains on pace to break Jerry Rice 's NFL single-season mark of 1,848 yards.

Fantasy Impact: No fantasy owner left in the playoffs needs to be reminded that Calvin Johnson needs to be in the lineup every week. He has been incredible this season and the Lions will likely do everything they can to make sure he gets Rice's record.

Johnson remains the No. 1 receiver in fantasy football.
