Megatron To Get Slight Dip In Targets

July 30 10:20 PM

Mlive.com predicts Lions receiver Calvin Johnson's targets will decline in 2014 after the team brought in Golden Tate and drafted Eric Ebron.

Fantasy Spin:
   Johnson drew 12 targets per game over the past two seasons, including 11.1 last year. Even if his targets drop, he's still going to see at least 10 per game and should have to face fewer double and triple coverages this season due to Detroit's new weapons. That should mean a catch-per-target rate closer to his 2012 rate of 59.5 percent than last season's 53.8 percent. Johnson is a monster and should be the top receiver drafted in all leagues, but he's probably a little overvalued in auction drafts. His average value in ESPN.com auctions is $50.50, well above Demaryius Thomas' $39.20, A.J. Green's $37.50, Dez Bryant's $35.6, Brandon Marshall's $32.2 and Julio Jones' $30.60.
