Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson might be my favorite NFL player to watch and my favorite player to have on my fantasy football team. On any play, from any spot on the field, no matter if he's covered by two or three or four defenders, Johnson can score a TD.

Unless something crazy happens, Calvin Johnson will return to the lineup today after missing more than a month of football action, and this is when fantasy football owners like me and rubbing our hands together and hoping for that second-half run at the league championship.

Editor's Note: FanDuel is hosting a $500,000 one-week fantasy football league this weekend. It's $10 to join and first place wins $40,000. League starts Sunday 1 PM ET and ends on Monday night. Here's the link.
