Calvin Johnson (thumb) limited on Wednesday: Fantasy Implications

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson was limited on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide out Calvin Johnson was listed on the team's injury report with a thumb ailment. The "injury" limited him in Wednesday's practice as well.

Johnson has been listed on the team's injury report pretty consistently this year -- before this, it was a knee injury. Expect No. 81 to suit up on Sunday versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Analysis: Megatron should be ready to rock n' roll this weekend versus the Colts, and could be in for a monster day.

Even though the touchdowns have not been as apparent in 2012, Johnson is having a career-year in receiving yards. He will continue to account for the majority of the Lions' offense, so keep CJ in your lineup in Week 13. Megatron will be a WR1 versus the Colts this week.
