Lions | Calvin Johnson adjusting approach in practice

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:19:19 -0700

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.

Lions | Golden Tate removed from PUP

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:00:07 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 28, and he is expected to take part in the team's first training camp practice later in the day. Tate missed part of the team's spring workouts with a shoulder injury and said his shoulder was "just a little soreness" in June.

Fantasy Tip: Tate should be fine for preseason and for Week 1 of the regular season if he doesn't have any setbacks. Tate's new home gives him plenty of upside as the complement to Calvin Johnson. He's a great option to have as a WR3.
