Lions | Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:12:05 -0800

Detroit Lions WRs Calvin Johnson (ankle, elbow) and Golden Tate (hip) are both listed as probable for Week 12 against the New England Patriots. Johnson and Tate were both limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and Tate was a surprise addition to the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,900) is never a bad option for your FantasyScore rosters, but the New England Patriots secondary isn't shabby, especially of late. Tate ($6,700) may have the tougher go of it Sunday if he's covered by Darrelle Revis all day.

Lions | Calvin Johnson limited

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 15:05:15 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle, elbow) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's injuries are minor at this point, so expect him to play against the New England Patriots. Megatron is a must-start in standard leagues, and at FantasyScore, he'll cost you a hefty $7,900 of your budget. Johnson may find it tough to return you any value against a New England secondary that has been improving.

Lions | Calvin Johnson sits out of practice

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 12:32:17 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (elbow) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson said his elbow is fine and that there's just a cut, so he should still be able to play this weekend. He does draw a tough test with Darrelle Revis and/or Brandon Browner, however, which could make his FantasyScore price of $7,900 a little too steep.

Lions | Golden Tate slated for Revis Island

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 07:37:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is expected to be covered by New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis, while CB Brandon Browner figures to cover WR Calvin Johnson in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($6,700; 13.4% of your cap) was only targeted twice last week with Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson looming. The matchup and Megatron's return likely hurt him, and he doesn't have a great outlook this week on FantasyScore either. Johnson ($7,900; 15.8%) was targeted 12 times, but he only had a 5-59 line. His prospects are a bit higher, but one must weigh the price and the potential output.

Lions | Golden Tate could draw Peterson matchup

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 05:59:34 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate could be blanketed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson Sunday, Nov. 16. ESPN analyst Merrill Hoge thinks that Peterson is better suited to cover Tate, while CB Antonio Cromartie covers WR Calvin Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($7,000; 14.0% of your cap) has loomed large all season, but this matchup could be difficult. Johnson ($7,900; 15.8%) might make for the better buy on FantasyScore today if this situation holds true.

Lions | Probable status for Calvin Johnson

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 13:38:21 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Nov. 14, and is probable for Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will likely be shadowed by Patrick Peterson all game long, but that shouldn't deter you from spending $7,900 on him at FantasyScore. Megatron has bested Peterson several times before in their matchups.

Lions | Calvin Johnson has full practice

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 15:19:01 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced fully Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson returned from injury last week to put up seven catches, 113 yards and a touchdown. He's the second most expensive receiver on FantasyScore, but there's always a chance for a big outing with Johnson.

Lions | Calvin Johnson sits

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 11:54:59 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully, it is just a day off for Megatron, and nothing more after he put up solid numbers in Week 10. Johnson is a must start in Week 11, and will cost $7,900 in FantasyScore.

Lions | Calvin Johnson faces stiff test

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 10:50:34 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson will likely be followed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, one of the top cornerbacks in the league, in Week 11. Johnson has beaten Peterson over the last two years, racking up 16 catches, 237 yards and two touchdowns, but the Cardinals won both of those matchups. "I was disappointed in (my) first half of the season; I believe I wasn't playing to my standards. I was fighting through injuries," Peterson said. "Now that I'm 100 percent, I've turned the corner, and I'm ready to roll from here on out."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will have his hands full, but he's still a must-start in all fantasy leagues. At FantasyScore, Megatron will cost you $7,900. Spending that much should be easier knowing that Johnson has had the upper hand against Peterson in the past.

Lions | Calvin Johnson in rare company

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 13:55:00 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) returned to the lineup in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins after a lengthy absence, and he posted seven receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown. The score was his 70th career touchdown (69 receiving, one rushing), joining Hall of Famer RB Barry Sanders as the only other player in franchise history to reach at least 70 touchdowns in a career.
