Calvin Johnson again held out of Lions practice: Fantasy implications

Sam Greenwood

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson did not practice again on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was held out of practice again on Thursday. Johnson has been resting a knee injury that has previously kept him out of practice but not out of games.

Johnson did not practice last week ahead of Detroit's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and he finished with 129 yards on seven catches. The Lions face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: This continues to not be a concern for fantasy owners. Johnson has played through the injury this season and there's no reason for the Lions to push him too hard during the week.

Fantasy owners should have no reservations about putting Johnson in lineups for Sunday, especially after a strong outing in Jacksonville. Johnson has just one touchdown on the season but he's still an elite fantasy option at wide receiver.
