You’ve heard this before, but this is why you always play your studs. Calvin Johnson has led the world this season in being tackled at the 1-yard line. No, seriously. Elias passed along this note before the start of NFL Fantasy Live on Sunday which said Megatron had been tackled at the 1-yard line after four of his catches. And each time, the Lions ran the ball in each time, and did not go to Johnson.

If you haven’t heard it yet, you’re bound to catch it at some point this weekend. Someone, whether it’s a draft analyst, host, or just the burly guy drinking a PBR next to you at the sports bar, will wonder aloud why a team would take a tight end in the first round.

The fantasy value of Greg Olsen took a tremendous hit once Mike Martz became the Bears offensive coordinator. Martz’s offenses use a tight end the same way that Tony Dungy uses blue language. So with Martz’s hiring, we lost a possible breakout fantasy tight end.
Or did we?
