Lions | Calvin Johnson still not fully healthy

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) did not participate in the team's third preseason game because he is not back to full strength yet. "Calvin wasn't quite 100 percent and we made the decision to sit him down until he's 100 percent," Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said. "We need him 100 percent going into the season. So we just decided to scratch him at the last minute."

Fantasy Tip: Even with Johnson sitting out, it sounds like he is close to being ready, and is the top fantasy football wide receiver in any format.
