2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-09-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Calvin Johnson is the best receiver in the game. In 2013, Megatron caught 84 passes for 1,492 yards and 12 touchdowns. All that production came in just 14 games. He is 6-foot-5 and 236 pounds, yet he can run faster than most receivers and cornerbacks. The question is whether any of the other tremendous receivers in the league can compare. Given his dominant production over the years, Johnson only makes sense as the first WR to come off the board. He should be drafted in the second half of the first round in all redraft leagues and formats.

Editor's note: At 28 years old, he will still be at the top of his game with an elite year or two left in the chamber. Considering he collected 14 receptions for 329 yards and a touchdown last year in Week 8 against Dallas, there's really no argument that he's slowing down. Johnson played through knee and finger injuries last year. He's back at 100-percent and could improve upon his already excellent 2013 statistics.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
1.03 FFToolbox - Jamie Blackburn - After Peterson, the first round RBs are pretty much all the same to me. So, in a PPR format, I decided to scoop up the best WR on the board. Hopefully my RB depth does not suffer as a result.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
1.01 FFToolbox - According to our FFToolbox "Box Score" Calvin is the #1 player in the game in PPR formats for 2013. I'll take a stab that I can find the depth at RB later in the draft.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
1.07 BFDFantasy - I usually want to start with a stud RB but I LOVE MEGATRON in this format!
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
1.08 DraftSharks - Calvin obviously tops everyone's WR board. But if I could do this over, I'd take Ray Rice instead. I've skipped RB in the 1st 2 rounds twice recently, and neither left me comfy with the results. That said, I'd still take Calvin on the redo if Engel takes Rice instead of Lynch -- then perhaps make the tough decision to skip over Jimmy Graham in Round 2.
