Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was listed as probable on the team's injury report on Friday. The big-time pass-catcher in the Motor City is expected to be active today versus the Seattle Seahawks. Johnson has been battling through a nagging knee injury, but it has not affected him on the field.
Johnson will be up against Seattle's top-tier secondary that features a fresh new rival in Richard Sherman. After some friendly banter this week, the two will go head-to-head in today's NFC showdown.
Fantasy Analysis: It goes without saying that Calvin Johnson is a must-start week to week. And although he has not put up near the numbers he did a year ago, he is still a big-time threat. He was averaging 2.0 touchdowns per game this time last year, but has failed to find the end zone consistently in 2012.
It won't be any easier this week against Seattle. Start Johnson but don't be surprised if he doesn't have his best outing thus far.
