Calvin Johnson sits out practice, Week 11 fantasy value remains high

Andy Clayton King

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) did not practice Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson did not practice on Wednesday. Johnson has been held out of practice a number of times this season as he rests a knee injury, although he has not missed any games.

Johnson had 12 catches for 207 yards and a touchdown in last weekend's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He has gone over 100 yards receiving in five games this season. The Lions face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: This has become routine with Johnson and fantasy owners should start him with confidence in Week 11. After the last two weeks, it's hard to argue with how Detroit is handling its top offensive weapon.

Johnson should again be considered the No. 1 fantasy option at wide receiver for Week 11 against the Packers.
