Calvin Johnson is the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football.

To no one's surprise, SBNation's Fake Teams has ranked Calvin Johnson as the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football in 2012. Here's what the site had to say about the ranking:

This is the most No-Brainer ranking in the history of Fantasy Football. Calvin is the man and in a league of his own, period.

Megatron and quarterback Matthew Stafford have combined to form one of the most lethal combinations in the NFL. Johnson is coming off a 2011 season in which he caught 96 passes for 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also signed a $132 million contract that made him one of the highest paid players in the history of the NFL.

Here's Fake Teams' full top 10 for wide receivers:

  1. Calvin Johnson
  2. Roddy White
  3. Greg Jennings
  4. Larry Fitzgerald
  5. A.J. Green
  6. Jordy Nelson
  7. Julio Jones
  8. Dez Bryant
  9. Mike Wallace
  10. Wes Welker
