Fantasy Analysis: Johnson's injury is nothing for fantasy owners to fret over. He has been a constant presence on the injury report, yet he set the single-season receiving record for yards, previously held by Jerry Rice.
Calvin Johnson is currently on pace for 2,000 yards, and has a chance to hit that mark against the Bears this weekend. If he does so, he will be the first player in NFL history to have hit the mark.
