Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions WR


Do you believe in the Madden curse? I try not to, but it sure is hard to ignore. The reason I bring this up is because my No.1 WR heading into training camp for 2012 is Detroit’s WR Calvin Johnson. In 2011 Johnson became a fan favorite for fantasy football owners setting career highs in targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns. I guess the question is, can Calvin Johnson put up those numbers again?  If you look at how the Detroit Lions are setup on offense, you’d have to say yes. They have an above-average QB, a questionable situation at RB and a TE that can hold the safeties from double-teams. When you have that type of dynamic on offense it spells success once again for Johnson.

My personal WR I will be watching closely this pre-season is Denver Broncos speedster Demaryius Thomas. If he and QB Peyton Manning can rock it out through the air, Thomas will end the season with double-digit TD.
