Another dud - but more importantly, an active game - should more emphatically flip your buy-low switch, which should already say "ON."

Bet on Johnson's production catching up to his attention instead of Detroit going in other offensive directions more frequently. Even with Johnson's underwhelming stats, Detroit has averaged the second most passing yards per game this year (307.0), and they know their best way to recover is to lean on their stud.

Johnson may have some trouble lining up across from Patrick Peterson in Week 15, but his schedule following Seattle is quite good. Luckily, most leagues don't play Week 17, when he faces Charles Tillman and the suffocating Chicago Bears for the second time. The Green Bay Packers, whom he'll face twice, just lost Charles Woodson (collarbone) for what's expected to be six weeks. The Houston Texans' 3-4 might be troublesome, but his slate could carry his owners to the postseason.

And, more importantly, once he's reached the less than stellar matchups in the fake playoffs, he might be back to normal.

To win in fantasy football, you must keep faith in elite talent overcoming team philosophy, makeup and opponents, which reign heavily over this game. In this case, he's the poster boy.

If his knee heals, he'll soon Transform and start winning more battles with explosions that would make Bay and your opponents cower in fear.

Now where's Megan Fox?
