Calvin Johnson has yet another big day for fantasy owners

Leon Halip

Megatron shook off a minor knee injury to deliver another 100-yard performance. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson had another solid performance on Thanksgiving. He caught six passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in Detroit's 40-10 win over the Green Bay Packers. His touchdown came on a brilliant catch-and-run, when he bulldozed a defender on the way to the end zone.

Fantasy owners had a brief scare in the third quarter. Johnson appeared to aggravate his lingering knee injury when Packers defender Sam Shields fell on him during a jump ball in the end zone. He was looked at by trainers on the sidelines, but stayed in the game and delivered a typical Megatron stat line.

Fantasy impact: Johnson's knee issue shouldn't be downplayed after he was a shocking last-minute scratch in Week 5, but he'll have 10 days to rest up for a tasty matchup against the Eagles defense in Week 14. The best wide receiver alive is matchup-proof and will be a rock for fantasy owners during the playoffs.
