Lions | Megatron used as a decoy

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 05:28:14 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was used as a decoy for the most part in Week 4 Sunday, Sept. 28. He caught the only two passes he was targeted in for 12 yards and laughed when he was asked if he was close to 90 percent health. He rarely played on back-to-back plays in Sunday's game and had a noticeable limp.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to continue playing through the injury and remains a must-start in most formats.

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 14:10:07 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was walking with a noticeable limp after the Week 4 game against the New York Jets. Johnson said Sunday, Sept. 28, that he wasn't close to the 90 percent healthy level head coach Jim Caldwell suggested, although Johnson would not estimate a number.

Lions | Calvin Johnson sets new low

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:18:09 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was active in Week 4 against the New York Jets, but he managed just two catches for 12 yards. It was a career low in yardage in a Lions victory. Detroit lost the previous six times he was held under 20 receiving yards.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was obviously not 100 percent, and hurt many fantasy owners in this one. He'll have a whole week to get well, but check back Friday when the official injury report comes out to get a better idea for his status in Week 5.

Lions | Calvin Johnson on track for Sunday?

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 20:32:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) appears to be trending toward playing in the Week 4 game against the New York Jets after a limited practice Friday, Sept. 26. "It was good to see him moving around a little bit," quarterback Matthew Stafford said.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is facing the league's No. 2 ranked defense, so the matchups isn't great even if he is able to play. With the tough matchup and injury, Johnson is a risky play in FantasyScore at $8900 (or 17.8 percent of the salary cap) even if he is active.

Lions | Calvin Johnson questionable

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 14:16:38 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 26, and is questionable for the team's Week 4 game.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is the most expensive wide receiver on the board with a cost of $8,900 (17.80% of cap) in FantasyScore. With his status not being known, and the potential that he could be limited, its probably best to avoid him this week.

Lions | Calvin Johnson returns to practice

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 08:22:22 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't necessarily guarantee that he'll play in Week 3, but it doesn't hurt that he's back on the field. We'll let you know when his official injury designation comes in.

Jets | Antonio Allen to cover Megatron

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:20:21 -0700

New York Jets CB Antonio Allen will match up against Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson in Week 4, and the converted safety wants to hold him to zero catches. Allen was thrown at 16 times and allowed 10 catches for 104 yards in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears while mostly working against WR Alshon Jeffery.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is a strong play against the Jets and Allen, who should be targeted often again. However, check back tomorrow to see Johnson's status. He's been dealing with an ankle injury that he suffered in Week 3.

Lions | Calvin Johnson's status unknown

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:06:44 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson's (ankle) status for Week 4 against the New York Jets is unknown after he missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, Sept. 25. Johnson said Wednesday, Sept. 24, that he would be fine for Sunday, Sept. 28. The Lions would likely look for WRs Corey Fuller and Ryan Broyles to step up Sunday if Johnson can't play.

Fantasy Tip: This is becoming a bigger concern for Johnson and his owners. It still seems doubtful that Megatron will miss the game against the Jets, but you have to plan now for that possibility, or the fact that he might be limited. It makes his top price for wideouts of $8,900 (17.8% of cap) at FantasyScore less appealing.
