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.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) skipped his third straight practice of the week Friday, Oct. 10, for the first time this year. Head coach Jim Caldwell said a decision on Johnson's status for Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings has not been determined, however. "And also, you never know. There's a possibility. A couple weeks ago, I really didn't think he'd be available but the fact of the matter is he came out after doctors looked at him and said, hey, you know what, he can go," Caldwell said. WRs Corey Fuller, Jeremy Ross and Ryan Broyles and TE Eric Ebron would be tasked with replacing Johnson as a committee if he doesn't play.
Fantasy Tip: Despite Caldwell being non-committal on Johnson, it seems unlikely that he'll play. Keep him out of your FantasyScore lineups this weekend. Golden Tate and Ebron stand to benefit the most with added targets.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson's (ankle) status for Week 4 against the New York Jets is unknown after he missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, Sept. 25. Johnson said Wednesday, Sept. 24, that he would be fine for Sunday, Sept. 28. The Lions would likely look for WRs Corey Fuller and Ryan Broyles to step up Sunday if Johnson can't play.
Fantasy Tip: This is becoming a bigger concern for Johnson and his owners. It still seems doubtful that Megatron will miss the game against the Jets, but you have to plan now for that possibility, or the fact that he might be limited. It makes his top price for wideouts of $8,900 (17.8% of cap) at FantasyScore less appealing.

Detroit Lions WR Kris Durham is on the bubble to make the 53-man roster along with WRs Ryan Broyles, Corey Fuller and Kevin Ogletree.

The Detroit Lions have a huge competition at the wide receiver spot for a starting role behind WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. WRs Jeremy Ross, Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles and Corey Fuller are all in contention at this point.

Detroit Lions WR Kevin Ogletree has been spent time on the top unit each of the first two days of training camp, working as the No. 3 receiver. He is battling WRs Ryan Broyles, Kris Durham, Corey Fuller and Jeremy Ross, among others, for the No. 3 job behind starting WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi singled out Ogletree during the spring as a player that impressed him.
Fantasy Tip: If Ogletree was able to work into a No. 3 role, he would still be more of a WR4 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, all it would take is one injury to Johnson or Tate for him to see more targets and relevance.

The Detroit Lions have 13 wide receivers on their roster heading into training camp, and they're looking for depth in case injuries strike again at the position. The favorite for the No. 4 job behind WRs Calvin Johnson, Ryan Broyles and Nate Burleson has been WR Patrick Edwards. He is a bit undersized at 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, but impressed during offseason workouts. It appears he and newcomer WR Chaz Schilens will jockey for the No. 4 job, and WRs Kris Durham, Corey Fuller and Michael Spurlock also could factor in.
