I have them in the same tier, but I like Calvin a bit better.

Calvin Johnson. Megatron is primed for a huge year with a healthy Matt Stafford.

Im going against the grain here. Megatron has always been touted as a top tier WR but in my opinion he never quite lives up to it. Dont get me wrong he is solid.

I like Nicks especially after what he did last year. He also hasn't got hurt

Nicks did miss two games with a leg injury last year and the last game of the year (week 17, which sometimes can be inconsequential for fantasy purposes) due to a broken toe. Nicks had some bumps and bruises injuries his rookie year too, including a toe injury he had repaired in the 2009 off season.

I don't necessarily think Nick is a huge injury risk, though.

I'd rather have Megatron, but it's pretty close. If I owned Nicks I wouldn't go trying to sell him for CJ2 or vice versus. Do you own one or the other, or are you looking to obtain a WR1 and are mulling between the two? :-?

Calvin in a second! Every year up until last season Nicks was expected to do big things and never produced. Calvin has been living up to high expectations since he was playing Pop Warner.
