#21-2012 Calvin Johnson Megatron came 36 yards away from 2,000 yard receiving season. The only downfall of the season for Megatron was he only caught 5 TD passes.  He still caught 122 balls for 1,964 yards. Johnson has gone as high as third in some mock drafts so you may need to make a trade to acquire his services.

Retro #21– Duece McAllister- The Duece was loose in 2002 rushing for over 1,300 yards and picking up 13 touchdowns. McAllister was a solid #2 fantasy running back for most of the 2,000’s.  2002 was his second highest rushing season.

Looking Ahead

ESPN-Brandon Marshall-WR Chicago Bears- It’s so great to see a Bears wide receiver ranked this high before the season it makes you almost speechless!

CBS– Maurice Jones-Drew RB Jacksonville Jaguars The only real bright spot on the Jaguars especially if they are stuck with Blaine Gabbert as their QB. Be careful with Jones-Drew with this pathetic offense.
