Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson continued his crazy-hot streak of late in the first half of Sunday's game. Through two quarters, Johnson has six catches for 179 yards and two touchdowns as the Lions lead the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-20 at halftime.
Johnson's two touchdowns came on 79- and 19-yard receptions in the second quarter, matching the two first-quarter scores by Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown. It is already Johnson's fourth two-score game of the season, including his third in the team's last four. Overall, Johnson now has 11 touchdowns on the season, and Sunday's first half brought him over 1,000 yards.
Fantasy impact: At this point, "analysis" on Johnson seems kind of silly. He's the best wide receiver in football, and it isn't particularly close. Sure, A.J. Green, Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, etc., are great, but Johnson is in a whole other tier than those guys.
If you own him, congratulations, though the perma-smile you probable have might be congratulations enough.
