Calvin Johnson closing in on Jerry Rice's single-season record: Fantasy Implications

USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is 65 yards away from the single-season receiving record with one half left of play. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide out Calvin Johnson is off to a big start on Saturday night's game. While his team is struggling, Johnson has already amassed six reception for 117 yards.

Johnson has been have a spectacular season, and on pace to break Jerry Rice's single-season receiving record tonight. CJ only needs 65 yards to hit the mark and set a new league best. This will be quite a moment for Johnson, breaking a record of this magnitude.

Fantasy Analysis: Johnson is off to a fantastic start for fantasy owners. It seems like only a matter of time before he finds the end zone. He is on pace for 12 receptions for 234 yards -- in theory.

Those with Calvin Johnson should already be more than pleased with his performance tonight.
