Lions | Calvin Johnson encouraged with progress

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 10:21:45 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) has been more encouraged about the progress of his high right ankle sprain this week, even though he's been limited in practices so far. "Good. We're doing everything from straight-forward running to moving laterally as well," Johnson said. "Things are going good. We're moving in a positive direction." However, Johnson said a decision on whether he'll play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons could come down to a game-time decision in London. Head coach Jim Caldwell said the decision will come down to doctors.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless, Johnson is a considerable risk at FantasyScore for $7,500 (15.0% of cap). If he's active, though, you'll have a much easier time inserting him into your lineups. With Detroit's bye next week, the Lions surely won't test his injury too much.

Lions | Calvin Johnson limited

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 08:51:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Johnson has a chance to play in Week 8, but owners will know more about his status in the next day or two. Johnson could be limited if he is active for the game and may not be worth his $7,500 price tag on FantasyScore this week.

Lions | Calvin Johnson increases practice load

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:12:05 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) did a lot more in practice Thursday, Oct. 23, as he was cutting and running routes.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron's activity in practice sheds a glimmer of hope for his status in Week 8. His $7,500 (15% of your cap) price tag on FantasyScore may still be too steep to bite on this week, though.

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:41:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson appears to be making some progress in his rehab, but he is still considered questionable for Week 8. Johnson has a price of $7,500 on FantasyScore, but owners probably should look to spend their money on healthier options.

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 07:03:01 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron's ($7,500; 15% of your cap) price is starting to drop a hair on FantasyScore. Check his practice reports this week to see if he is able to go.

Lions | Calvin Johnson must be 100 percent

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 14:11:02 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) will only return in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons if he's 100 percent healthy, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. "It's not going to be a thing of degrees," Caldwell said. "When they say he's cleared, he's ready to go and he's feeling great, when they doctors say, OK, that's when it's going to happen. It's not going to be a whole lot of in between." Johnson has missed six straight practices.

Fantasy Tip: We'll have a better indication of how healthy Johnson is when the team starts official practice tomorrow. Johnson's price at FantasyScore ($7,500; 15.0% of cap) has dropped slightly because of his injury, but he'll be worth it if he suits up against the Atlanta Falcons in London.

Lions | Calvin Johnson resumes running

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 10:03:27 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he is back to running Tuesday, Oct. 21. Johnson sat out in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints and appears to be trying to return sooner rather than later.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign for Johnson's owners, but it doesn't mean a whole lot yet until we see if he can return to practice this week. Detroit faces the Atlanta Falcons in London this weekend. It's a great matchup if Megatron can return to action.

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.
