Lions | Calvin Johnson must be 100 percent

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 14:11:02 -0700

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.

Lions | Calvin Johnson resumes running

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 10:03:27 -0700

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.

Lions | Joseph Fauria feeling good

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:30:03 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) said he felt good running and cutting on his ankle Monday, Oct. 20.

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

Lions | Calvin Johnson going to London

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 10:17:10 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) will travel with the team for their Week 8 game in London, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's status for the game is uncertain, so owners will need to see if he will be able to do anything during practice this week. Johnson could be limited if he is able to play and would be a risky play.

Lions | Matthew Stafford provides late heroics

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 16:32:08 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 27 of 40 pass attempts for 299 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints. Both touchdown strikes came in the final 3:38 of the game, after the Lions had trailed 23-10.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford went under 200 yards passing last week without Calvin Johnson on the field, but he had a strong game against the leaky New Orleans pass defense. He remains a fantasy stud with or without Megatron when facing a poor pass defense.

Lions | Calvin Johnson non-committal about Week 8

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 16:20:25 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) would not give any indication whether he would play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons. After the Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 19, he simply said, "maybe" as he was asked about his playing status next week.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on the practice report this week. Johnson likely won't be pressed back into duty until he is 100 percent.

Lions | Reggie Bush bothered by ankle

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 15:55:42 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was not benched in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints. Bush only played a handful of snaps in the second half in favor of RB Joique Bell because his ankle was bothering him, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Bush's status for Week 8 will be better known late next week after practice. If he is unable to go, or limited again, Joique Bell would be the biggest beneficiary from a fantasy perspective.

Lions | Theo Riddick not playing

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:58:11 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) is inactive for the game Sunday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: RB Joique Bell ($5,200; 10.4%) and Reggie Bush ($6,400; 12.8%) could see more action in the passing game today with all the injuries to skill-position players. Bell is a great RB2 and is probably a better option than Bush because of the price difference on FantasyScore today.

Lions | Eric Ebron inactive for Week 7

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:50:14 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) is inactive for the game Sunday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Pettigrew ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is a poor selection on FantasyScore today as he's primarily a blocker. RB Joique Bell ($5,200; 10.4%) could see more action in the passing game today and is a great RB2.

Lions | Calvin Johnson inactive

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:47:59 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is inactive for the game Sunday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Golden Tate ($6,300; 12.6% of your cap) is a good WR2 on FantasyScore today against the New Orleans Saints.
