Detroit Lions wide out Calvin Johnson lit up the Falcons secondary on Saturday, but did not find the end zone. This performance epitomized his season in 2012. He has been all yards and catches, but few scores.
He is not the dominant scoring threat he was a year ago, but has shown an uncanny ability to chew up defense for big yards in the middle of the field.
Fantasy Analysis: Megatron finished with 11 receptions for 225 yards and no scores. Even though a touchdown would have been nice, this was a great performance by the Lions receiver.
Since the Lions have played from behind for a good portion of the season, they find themselves throwing the ball quite a bit. This has led to big days for Calvin Johnson, the new single-season record holder for receiving yards.
