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)

Lions | Calvin Johnson adjusting approach in practice (Tue Jul 29, 08:19 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is taking part in fewer reps in training camp this year than in years past and said he is trying to be smarter about his approach to practice with the goal of staying healthy the entire season. 'I'm older now,' Johnson said. 'I'm not diving for the balls anymore (in practice). Coach Caldwell has a big emphasis about us staying off the ground. I'm not playing every play in practice but they're working me in. I'm out here trying to get my extra running in after (practice) so I can keep my wind up.'

Our View: Johnson is the best in the game today. Anything he wants to do should be okay with the Lions. He's WR1 (1.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
