Lions | Detroit not dropping passes

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:40:26 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has completed three percent more of his passes this year than last year, and the team's reduction in dropped passes is likely the key. Last year, the Lions dropped 8.1 percent of passes. No Lions player has more than three drops on the year, with RB Joique Bell, TE Eric Ebron and WR Calvin Johnson with three drops each.

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 13:48:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 4, after being limited the day before.

Lions | Calvin Johnson limited Wednesday

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:16:06 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($8,000) finally broke out and feasted on Thanksgiving. He could carry that momentum forward against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend, so you should strongly consider him for your FantasyScore lineups. The Bucs are among the worst against the pass all season long.

Lions | Calvin Johnson says he's the same guy

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 09:51:09 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson hasn't been putting up big numbers this season, but he denies that he's starting to decline. He's on pace to finish with fewer than 1,000 yards receiving for the first time since 2009, but he continues to say that he's the same player he was when he set the single-season record for receiving yards two years ago. "I think that the biggest thing you can kind of just take a look at is does he still run by people?" head coach Jim Caldwell said. "The answer to that would be yes. Is he still able to lay out, catch the ball and do things that he normally does? Yes. And I think that that's what matters." Since returning from a sprained ankle, Johnson has also faced three of the league's top defenses.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been a disappointment to fantasy owners, sure, but his schedule is lightening up at the right time for the fantasy playoffs in standard leagues. In Week 13, he should be worth his $7,900 FantasyScore price against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving. Expect Megatron to bust out and feast.
