Calvin Johnson limited in practice, still a fantasy must start

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) was limited in practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was limited in practice on Friday due to his injured knee. Johnson sat out Wednesday's practice and was limited on Thursday and Friday, a schedule the Lions have used more than once this year.

Johnson has not missed a game this season and there is no reason to expect he won't be in the lineup with the Lions take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson leads the NFL in receiving yards and had his best week of the season against the Vikings on Nov. 11. Johnson caught 12 balls for 207 yards and a touchdown.

Season highs in receptions and yards show that Johnson certainly feels good enough to perform come game day. He only has two touchdowns on the season, but he remains one of the top fantasy receivers in the game and should be in your starting lineup without question.
