Calvin Johnson fantasy rampage slowed by Bears

USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was held under 100 yards for the first time since October. We break down the fantasy implications.

Calvin Johnson's streak of consecutive 100-yard games was broken on Sunday as the Detroit Lions lost to the Chicago Bears 26-24. Johnson ended the game with five receptions for 72 yards, landing him 36 yards short of 2,000 for the season.

Johnson still had one of the best seasons ever by a wide receiver with 122 catches for 1,936 yards and five touchdowns. The 1,936 yards is a record for most receiving yardage in a single-season.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson is one of the few players in the league that can consider 72 yards a disappointment. Fantasy owners could complain about his lack of touchdowns this season, but with 1,936 yards it is hard to have any legitimate complaints.

Johnson will be the top-rated fantasy receiver heading into next season. It is unlikely he can match his yardage total, but he will likely end up in the end zone a few more times.
