Lions | Calvin Johnson hits 1,000 yards

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 14:33:58 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) hauled in six receptions for a game-high 103 yards in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, as he went over 1,000 yards receiving for the fifth straight season, and sixth time in eight NFL seasons. He left the game briefly due to an ankle issue, but was able to return.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have a pair of 1,000 receivers for the first time since the 2006 season, as Megatron joins Golden Tate in the club. Johnson walked off his injury on the sidelines and should be fine for Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers.

Lions | Calvin Johnson will play against Bears

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 13:28:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for Week 16 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,500) is worth paying a high price on at FantasyScore this weekend against the Chicago Bears. The Bears have routinely been torched by opposing quarterbacks and wide receivers this year, and Johnson had 11 catches (16 targets) for 146 yards and two TDs earlier this year against Chicago. Start him everywhere.

Lions | Calvin Johnson a full participant

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:49:03 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 18, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's $7,500 FantasyScore salary this week should be justified, as he's going against a very weak Chicago Bears secondary. It's about as good a matchup as you could ask for if you're in a championship matchup this week and own Megatron.

Lions | Calvin Johnson limited in practice

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 14:09:54 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron has gone well over 100 yards receiving in the last two games and has scored three touchdowns. It's probably safe to say he's back to full strength. Consider him a solid FantasyScore option down the stretch. Johnson will cost you $8,000 this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lions | Detroit not dropping passes

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:40:26 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has completed three percent more of his passes this year than last year, and the team's reduction in dropped passes is likely the key. Last year, the Lions dropped 8.1 percent of passes. No Lions player has more than three drops on the year, with RB Joique Bell, TE Eric Ebron and WR Calvin Johnson with three drops each.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 5, and is probable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Lions | Calvin Johnson puts in full practice

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 13:48:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 4, after being limited the day before.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($8,000) proved he is back to at least close to full health last Thursday, and he is worth his high FantasyScore cost again this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their poor defense.
