WR - #7 15.85 DET Probable 8 years 30 6'5 237

2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Johnson's stats have declined over the past two years as he has battled lingering knee and ankle injuries. Last year, Calvin missed three games and finished two others with fewer than 15 yards because of a high ankle sprain. Still, Johnson has five consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and 74 TDs in 119 career games. If you take out those two clunkers, Calvin caught 68 of 125 targets for 1,058 yards and seven scores in 11 games. Over a full season, this comes out to 99 catches, 1,539 yards and 10 TDs. Johnson finished nine games with double-digit targets and five with at least 100 yards last year. His greatness is a given, but his injury risk is starting to eat away at his draft value. He has an early ADP of 14, making him the seventh WR off the board. He can't match the volume of catches from Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham, but he has the most touchdown upside of any wide receiver. He needs to stay healthy, and the Lions' offensive line needs to play better. If you are looking for about 90 catches, 1,500 yards and 12 TDs, Calvin is still your guy.
