Lions | Calvin Johnson going to London

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 10:17:10 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) will travel with the team for their Week 8 game in London, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's status for the game is uncertain, so owners will need to see if he will be able to do anything during practice this week. Johnson could be limited if he is able to play and would be a risky play.

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 16:20:25 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) would not give any indication whether he would play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons. After the Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 19, he simply said, "maybe" as he was asked about his playing status next week.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on the practice report this week. Johnson likely won't be pressed back into duty until he is 100 percent.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints.

Lions | Calvin Johnson misses another practice

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 09:12:34 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) didn't practice for the sixth straight day Friday, Oct. 17. Head coach Jim Caldwell isn't ruling him out for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, but he also didn't make it sound like Johnson would play, either. Johnson said earlier this week that he sees no reason to rush back to the field until he's completely healthy. The team will lean heavily on WRs Golden Tate, Corey Fuller and Jeremy Ross, along with RBs Joique Bell and Reggie Bush if Johnson doesn't play again.

Fantasy Tip: It's highly unlikely that we see Megatron play against the Saints. Avoid him everywhere. Tate's price ($6,300; 12.6% of cap) has gone up with Johnson hobbled, but he could still return a profit against a weak New Orleans defense.

Lions | Calvin Johnson likely out

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 07:54:51 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is likely out for Week 7 as head coach Jim Caldwell said "it might take a miracle" for Johnson to play.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron ($7,900; 15.8% of your cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore this week. Golden Tate ($6,300; 12.6%) was targeted 12 times last week and remains a solid WR2. However, the New Orleans Saints can key in on him in Megatron's absence.

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:47:12 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson looks like he will not be able to play in Week 7, but things could change over the next few days. Johnson costs $7,900 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using their money on healthier options.

Lions | Calvin Johnson won't rush back

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 11:12:59 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said there is no point in rushing back to play until he is fully healed and ready to compete at a high level. Both he and head coach Jim Caldwell have been non-committal as to whether Johnson will play in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints. Johnson said there is still pain "lingering there." "Not beating it up," Johnson said. "Not getting out there, rolling it again, it definitely helps you. More and more you can stay off that particular area, the faster it can heal."

Fantasy Tip: All signs are pointing to Johnson sitting out for the second straight week. Avoid him in your FantasyScore lineups.
