To me it was clear that Calvin Johnson is above Andre Johnson, and I don't consider them even in the same tier (at least for non-PPR).
Here are my own personal reasons and I don't know if others will agree.YPR
Andre Johnson avgs about 14 ypR.
Calvin had 15, and then 17 in his 2nd year with crap QBs.TDs
It's surprising, but Andre has never gotten over 8 TDs in any given season. Calvin had 12 last year, with the Lions.Superstition
Calvin is a 3rd year receiver. If you believe a WR breaks out in their 3rd year, then you believe that Calvin will have a better year than he had last year. If he had 1300 and 12 last year, then this year... o m g....
Andre Johnson, on the other hand, has sucked every other year.Linehan
What's better than Dante Culpepper to Randy Moss? Probably Daunte Culpepper to Calvin Johnson. The ceiling is very high for Calvin with Linehan who will likely force feed redzone targets to Calvin.Physique
Calvin is the better physical specimen, at least according to combines, and looks it on the field. He's also 2 inches taller than Andre and an inch taller than Randy Moss but more buff and probably just as fast if not faster than both. Freak of nature. The fact that he has a blue-collar hard work ethic means can only be a plus.
