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.
