Calvin Johnson injury: Questionable for Week 10, fantasy value still solid

Gregory Shamus

Despite missing more practices this week, Johnson should be able to go. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is listed as questionable to play against the Vikings in Week 10, but was able to practice on Friday and should be able to start. Johnson missed more practice this week from a knee injury that's been nagging the star wideout, but he has yet to miss a game.

Despite just one touchdown reception on the year, Johnson is otherwise his usual self and has 48 catches for 767 yards.

Fantasy Take: Why only one touchdown? Johnson has been manhandled inside the ten-yard line this year and team's are doing their best to make sure they don't get beat by him. Therefore, red zone targets are down and opponents force Matthew Stafford to go to another option.

Still, Johnson is a WR1 every week that he plays and that won't change against Minnesota.
