Lions | Calvin Johnson plays limited snaps

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) played a limited amount of snaps in the Week 6 game against the Cleveland Browns, including just 14 plays in the first half with two dropped passes. However, he ended the day with eight targets, three receptions and 25 yards. "We knew if we were only going to have him for a certain amount of snaps, we'd want those to be in the second half," head coach Jim Schwartz said.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't make Johnson's fantasy owners feel good, but the presence of the Pro Bowl receiver helped open up the passing game for Matthew Stafford, and clear room for Reggie Bush and Joseph Fauria.
