Kyle Meinke of reports that while Calvin Johnson is lighting up training camp as expected, his advancing age, usage and new offense could lead to a diminished role. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: I have a really hard time buying into this. Calvin Johnson is the best receiver in the NFL and has finished 1st, 1st and 3rd in fantasy scoring the last 3 years and remains just 29 years of age. That includes playing all of last year with a bothersome knee and missing two games. The additions of Golden Tate and Eric Ebron should only help to alleviate some of the pressure Johnson faces. He should still easily finish top 10 in the NFL in targets in Detroit's pass happy offense and is my, and most other people's, number one fantasy wideout.

Coming off a finger operation and a right knee scope, he is expected to be 100 percent well ahead of training camp. Megatron has picked up a ton of nicks and bruises during his 7-year career, but has missed only 6 games.

He's taken the WR crown twice in the past 4 seasons and has the talent to do it again. Few can contend for this top spot.

WR Tate and TE Ebron should lead to less double team coverage this season.

Model of WR consistency. Megatron finished as a top-three fantasy wideout for the third year in a row. Johnson's injuries are somewhat of concern. He had to get his right knee drained every week last season and cost him 2 games. His finger was also stuck at 90 degrees. In January, he had finger surgery and had his knee scoped.

Megatron is the best receiver in the game. Period.

He is an absolute monster and can be considered for your #1 overall pick in the draft.

Johnson turns 29-years old this season, he is still the best fantasy wide receiver to own in 2014.
