2012 Fantasy Football Rankings: Wide Receivers
August 3, 2012Eastern Indiana Sports
1. Calvin Johnson, WR, Lions. Bye: 5.
Draft Megatron at your own risk. Calvin Johnson is the newest cover boy of the Madden franchise. Peyton Hillis' 2011 campaign was derailed by the Madden Curse, and there's a chance that Megatron will suffer some sort of untimely injury. Contrarians will foolishly laugh it off, but the Madden Curse strikes every year, without fail. It's a shame because excluding the top quarterbacks, Johnson appeared to be the safest fantasy player this year. Oh well.
