Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley has reportedly added 10 pounds to his frame since the start of training camp, which has led to his demotion in favor of DT C.J. Mosley. The Lions declined to pick up Fairley's 2015 option earlier this year as a way to motivate him to show up this offseason in better shape. Mosley has looked exceptional at times with the first-team, and he rededicated himself to eating cleaner and sleeping longer in the offseason.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (finger) has a fabricated splint to wear on his previously injured finger for protective purposes only. Johnson had surgery on the finger after last season, but it's unclear how often he plans to wear the splint. Johnson hasn't shown any ill effects from his finger or knee in training camp, where he has consistently beaten the team's cornerbacks in practice.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson is easily the league's best receiver, and he should come off the board as the first receiver in the first round. He routinely goes around the middle of the first round, especially in PPR leagues.
