Megatron contends he's still the 'same guy' from record-breaking year

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:07 am ET) It's quite evident Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson's production in 2014 has not been up to par. Johnson has missed time this season due to an ankle injury, but when he has been active, he has averaged just 72.3 receiving yards per game, which is his lowest average since 2010. He had averaged more than 100 receiving yards per game from 2011-13.

Johnson said Tuesday he is still the "same guy" from 2012, when he totaled 1,964 receiving yards, which is an NFL record. Quarterback Matthew Stafford suggests Johnson's drop in production is because defenses are doing a better job "keying in" on the star receiver.

"He’s the best receiver in the league, and they know that," Stafford said, per The Detroit News. "It’s on me to just throw him better balls and make sure we’re on the same page."

Stafford added it's tough to tell if Johnson is still hobbled by the ankle injury.

"It was a long time that he was out," Stafford said. "Even when he was in early on in the season, there were a couple games he played where he wasn’t himself. It’s always a long process coming back."

Calvin Johnson limited in Tuesday's practice

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/14) Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited in Tuesday's practice ahead of Thursday's game against the Bears.

Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate won't ruin each other

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/14) During the six games in which Calvin Johnson was either sidelined or compromised by an ankle injury, fellow Lions wide receiver Golden Tate emerged as a must-start Fantasy option, averaging 8.3 catches for 118.0 yards. But the ride appeared to end with Johnson's return Week 11 at Arizona. Not only did Tate catch just two passes for 41 yards, but he was targeted just twice.

Both players got double-digit targets Week 12 at New England, however, and Tate was back to being the more productive of the two, gaining 97 yards on four catches. Johnson was no slouch, picking up 58 on four catches of his own. If quarterback Matthew Stafford had completed more than just 18 of his 46 passes, imagine the numbers those two would have put up.

The matchup had something to do with it, though. The Patriots ranked high against the pass prior to their recent matchups against the Colts, Broncos and Bears. Considering Tate was going against star defensive back Darrelle Revis and Johnson was double covered much of the afternoon, both put up respectable numbers.

Which means both could be in for big numbers with a favorable matchup Week 13 against Chicago. With the way Tate bounced back, I'd consider both must-starts in Fantasy.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson held under 60 receiving yards again

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) Lions wide receivers Calvin Johnson had an uninspiring performance Sunday afternoon against the Patriots in Week 13.

Johnson was heavily shadowed by either Brandon Browner or Darrelle Revis throughout the day. He came down with a 16-yard reception on the final play of the first quarter for his only grab of the first half. Johnson was targeted 10 times and finished with four catches for 58 yards in a 34-9 defeat.

Johnson has been held under 60 receiving yards in back-to-back games. He'll look to break the trend on Thanksgiving Day against Chicago.

Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Joique Bell labeled active for Lions

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) Lions wide receivers Calvin Johnson (ankle) and Golden Tate (hip) were both designated as active for Sunday's clash against New England. Running back Joique Bell (ankle) was also labeled as active for Week 12. Both players were listed as probable entering Sunday and were not in any danger of missing game action.
