During the 2012 season Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson had a record-breaking season with his 1,964 yards in a single season; breaking all-time great Jerry Rice's long-time record of 1,848 yards in 1995. Johnson has been the best overall receiver all six seasons he has been in the league playing on some pretty bad teams.
Over his career, Johnson has been one of the most targeted receivers in the league with 882 passes thrown his way during the regular season. He has seen more balls come his way especially with Matthew Stafford as his quarterback.
