Summary

Johnson is in the prime of his career, and even when he misses two games, he still posts 1500 yards and double digit touchdowns. Golden Tate give the Lions an extra weapon, but he's not going to steal a ton of stats from Johnson this season. He may not have 120 receptions this season, but Johnson's big play ability and red zone excellence will make him one of the top receivers in the league. Again. (May 26)
