Calvin Johnson puts up incredible numbers in Week 13: Fantasy Implications

US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson has a monstrous outing in Week 13. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide out Calvin Johnson put together a huge stat-line on Sunday. In Week 13 versus the Indianapolis Colts, Johnson easily ran through the secondary, finishing with 13 receptions for 171 yards receiving and a TD.

Johnson has been on a tear this season, challenging longstanding records held by former NFL greats like Jerry Rice. Despite his great effort, the Lions were victimized by some last minute heroics by Andrew Luck and the Colts.

Fantasy Analysis: Calvin Johnson is a rare breed of player. There shouldn't be anything standing in the way of fantasy owners starting Megatron each and every week.

CJ has been absolutely dominant this season -- it's just unfortunate that his grandiose gesture week in and week out isn't enough. It seems that Lions' plan to rely on one player, no matter how good, isn't a winning formula. On a related note, A Football Life: Barry Sanders will premier on NFL Network this Wednesday.
