Calvin Johnson sits out practice again: Fantasy implications

Al Messerschmidt

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) missed practice again on Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson did not practice again on Friday because of a knee injury. Johnson has not practiced this week and has been trying to play through the injury during games.

Johnson also did not practice last Friday and finished last weekend's win over the Seattle Seahawks with 46 yards on three catches. The Lions face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: The consensus among beat writers earlier in the week was that Johnson will play. Fantasy owners will know more, however, once the injury report comes on out on Friday afternoon. Johnson has not missed any games but has been slowed in recent weeks.

For now, Johnson remains a No. 1 fantasy option at wide receiver for Week 9. If Johnson doesn't play, Titus Young would be the receiver most likely to see an increase in fantasy value.
