Way ahead of the pack, Calvin Johnson has proven to be a top five producer at this position without Matthew Stafford in the lineup, and even on a team that didn’t win a game a few years back. When Stafford is in the lineup, we witnessed what Johnson can do and his final three games of the year were off the charts.
At times Johnson is good enough that it really doesn’t matter who you put on him or how many guys are around him; he’s going to make plays.
Question is, should you take Johnson as a mid-first-round pick, when the receiver depth is strong and RB1 depth is weak? It’s an interesting situation and it really comes down to how your personal board shakes out, what your tendencies are as a fantasy owner, and if you actually have the guts to pull the trigger on draft day.
Personally, I will probably stay away but it’s mainly because I’ve had it drilled down my head since I was eleven years old that running is the way to go early on.
