Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson breaks century mark in Week 6. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson had a big day against the Philadelphia Eagles secondary. Johnson hauled in six balls for 135 yards against on Sunday. However, the Eagles managed to keep the big-bodied receiver out of the end zone.

Johnson is the prototypical wide receiver every team in the NFL would kill to have. He is as elite as they come. Even though this was a big day statistically, it was only slightly above average for Johnson. He is capable of producing at a much higher level.

Fantasy Analysis: Johnson is sort of a one-man offense for the pass-heavy Detroit Lions. The wide out is one of the elite players in the league, as he can be problematic for just about any team. Johnson is a huge target for any passer, but he's developed a nice rapport with his quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Johnson continues to get an awful lot of targets and is often indefensible. He can be counted on week-to-week to provide your team with fantasy points. Johnson is a rock solid must-start.
