Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 11, and he practiced without wearing a knee brace. However, he struggled when he had to cut in his routes and will be a game-time decision in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: Megatron clearly isn't 100 percent and won't be even if he plays Sunday, but if he's on the field, you should have him in your lineup. The fact that he's practicing without the knee brace is a good sign. Check back Sunday morning to see if he plays. If he doesn't, Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles and Patrick Edwards will try to pick up the slack in the passing game. It'll be a crapshoot to rely on any of those three.

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles had just two catches for 27 yards on two targets in the team's Week 5 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Broyles ran only 15 routes compared to 46 for WR Kris Durham and 41 for WR Patrick Edwards.
Fantasy Tip: Many believed Broyles' production would soar with Calvin Johnson (knee) sitting out, but that wasn't the case at all. Durham, Edwards and even Kevin Ogletree were looked to more often than Broyles. This suggests they are still easing Broyles into his role. Until we see more from him, he's better off riding pine on your bench.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) has been declared inactive for Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: With Johnson out, Ryan Broyles and Patrick Edwards likely will start at wide receiver with Kris Durham seeing more playing time. Broyles can be a starting option for owners this week, but Edwards and Durahm probably are nothing more than weak flex options in most leagues. Reggie Bush could become more involved in the passing game because of Johnson's injury.

Detroit Lions WR Patrick Edwards (ankle), OG Rob Sims (shoulder), OT Jason Fox (groin), DE Ezekiel Ansah (abdomen), DE Israel Idonije (hamstring), LB Ashlee Palmer (ankle), CB Rashean Mathis (head) and FS Louis Delmas (knee) are listed as probable for Week 5. Delmas did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 4, Ansah and Palmer were limited and the other players fully practiced.

Detroit Lions WR Patrick Edwards (ankle), OT Jason Fox (groin) and CB Rashean Mathis (head) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 3.

Detroit Lions WR Patrick Edwards (ankle), OT Jason Fox (groin) and CB Rashean Mathis (head) all fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Tue, 01 Oct 2013 16:52:59 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Kris Durham played in 92 percent of the team's 66 offensive snaps in Week 4 win over the Chicago Bears and scored his first touchdown of the season with WRs Patrick Edwards (ankle) and Nate Burleson (forearm) out. Durham played two snaps less than WR Calvin Johnson and 20 more than WR Ryan Broyles. Durham finished with three catches for 58 yards, a career high for him. "It gives me some confidence," Durham said. "I think it gives Matthew some confidence in me. I was in the right place at the right time and made good throws, good catches."
Fantasy Tip: Durham has short-term sleeper value with Burleson out if Edwards misses another game this week. The matchup against the Green Bay Packers is intriguing, too, especially if Broyles isn't exactly 100 percent up to speed.
