2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Expectations were high for Calvin Johnson coming into the 2009 season, and he failed to produce because of a lingering knee problem. While Johnson played on one leg, he still managed to produce 67 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games played.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Johnson is probably the most talent receiver in all of football as Randy Moss is aging. For all of Johnson’s ability I am concerned about his ability to respond physically to an injury.

In two of Johnson’s three season in the NFL, he has had an injury linger throughout the season. In his rookie year, he landed hard on his back against the Eagles, and he was slowed down because of it. In his third season, he sustained a knee injury, and it was very noticeable that the injury continued to linger with him throughout the second half of the season.

If Johnson can stay healthy he will be one of the top five producing fantasy receivers in the game. Because of his injury concerns, we have him ranked down in the lower portion of the top ten fantasy receivers for the 2010 season. If he shows the ability to stay healthy throughout this season and Matthew Stafford continues to progress, Johnson could be one of the top three receivers to get in 2011.

Great upside and ability but just remember the injury concerns on draft day.
