Defenses have a hard enough time trying to guard Calvin Johnson just because he is a huge human being with a ridiculous catch radius and athleticism. Now before they try their best against Megatron, defensive players will have to find him first.
Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is finding creative ways to get Johnson involved in the offense, and one particular way involves playing Johnson out wide, in the slot and with pre-snap motion.
"I think he's going to move around a lot," Lombardi said of Johnson. "If they want to roll coverage to him or double him, it's harder if he's in multiple spots."
Is there any doubt that Calvin is the No. 1 fantasy WR? Lock in at least 1,500 yards and double-digit touchdowns as long as he stays healthy. He is an easy mid-first-round pick in all leagues.
