Detroit Lions OT LaAdrian Waddle (concussion), who missed three games this year with a calf ailment, didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, due to a concussion. The team used a rotation of OTs Cornelius Lucas and Garrett Reynolds when Waddle was out earlier this year at right tackle, and the duo combined to allow three hurries and five sacks of QB Matthew Stafford.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson appears to be making some progress in his rehab, but he is still considered questionable for Week 8. Johnson has a price of $7,500 on FantasyScore, but owners probably should look to spend their money on healthier options.

Fantasy Tip: Bush was able to play last week with the injury and should be able to play again in Week 8 if he does not suffer any setbacks. Bush costs $6,000 on FantasyScore and could be a solid starting option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($3,300; 6.6% of your cap) isn't a good start on FantasyScore if he's able to go this week.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is a bare-minimum flex option if you plan to load up elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron's ($7,500; 15% of your cap) price is starting to drop a hair on FantasyScore. Check his practice reports this week to see if he is able to go.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has also topped 100 yards in three of the last four weeks, and although Calvin Johnson's absence in recent weeks has boosted his production, Tate has been steady force in the Detroit passing attack all year. Regardless of whether or not Johnson suits up in Week 8, Tate ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is worth starting at FantasyScore against an atrocious Atlanta defense.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) will only return in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons if he's 100 percent healthy, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. "It's not going to be a thing of degrees," Caldwell said. "When they say he's cleared, he's ready to go and he's feeling great, when they doctors say, OK, that's when it's going to happen. It's not going to be a whole lot of in between." Johnson has missed six straight practices.
Fantasy Tip: We'll have a better indication of how healthy Johnson is when the team starts official practice tomorrow. Johnson's price at FantasyScore ($7,500; 15.0% of cap) has dropped slightly because of his injury, but he'll be worth it if he suits up against the Atlanta Falcons in London.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he is back to running Tuesday, Oct. 21. Johnson sat out in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints and appears to be trying to return sooner rather than later.
Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign for Johnson's owners, but it doesn't mean a whole lot yet until we see if he can return to practice this week. Detroit faces the Atlanta Falcons in London this weekend. It's a great matchup if Megatron can return to action.

Fantasy Tip: Fauria doesn't see enough targets and is too touchdown dependent to warrant starter status in any league format.
