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.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 9.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson returned to practice Friday, Aug. 8.
Fantasy Tip: Megatron is arguably the top receiver in fantasy, and the added weapons around him should bode well to staving off some of the double coverages.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is taking part in fewer reps in training camp this year than in years past and said he is trying to be smarter about his approach to practice with the goal of staying healthy the entire season. "I'm older now," Johnson said. "I'm not diving for the balls anymore (in practice). Coach Caldwell has a big emphasis about us staying off the ground. I'm not playing every play in practice but they're working me in. I'm out here trying to get my extra running in after (practice) so I can keep my wind up."
Fantasy Tip: Anything that Johnson can do to avoid the nagging injuries that forced him to miss time down the stretch last season is a good thing for fantasy owners. He should be the first WR off the board in any format.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson thinks the team is in a place where they can win the Super Bowl in 2014. "We need to win a Super Bowl," Johnson said. "That's the No. 1 thing. That's the No. 1 thing (and) should be for every team going into the beginning of the year."
