Lions | Calvin Johnson can get better?

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson believes that he can improve on last season's 1,964 receiving yards, according to QB Matthew Stafford, who appeared on NFL Network's "NFL AM" on Thursday, July 11. "That guy works harder than anybody I know. ..." said Stafford. He broke former WR Jerry Rice's single-season record while playing with broken fingers. Stafford acknowledged that the Lions must become more balanced in order to be successful as a team, however.

Fantasy Tip: The reality is that Megatron is unlikely to top or even approach that figure again, despite the superlatives we can use to describe him and his abilities. Detroit wants to win before it wants its receiver to break more records. Fantasy owners have to accept the fact that the elite wideout won't dwarf all other receivers like he did last year.
