Calvin Johnson Injury Update: Fantasy owners should TOTALLY bench him

USA TODAY Sports

Calvin Johnson's knee injury should have no impact on your decide on starting him.

Calvin Johnson (knee) was a limited participant in practice this week and is listed as probable to face the Falcons on Saturday. He is expected to start and play his full complement of snaps.

Calvin Johnson is on the doorstep to break the record for most receiving yards in a season, currently sitting at an NFL-high 1,667 yards and also leading the pack with 174 targets. He trails Brandon Marshall by one reception for the lead with 106.

Fantasy Impact: Megatron is fine and there's really no way you're going to bench him even in a one-man league. His matchup is just average as the Falcons are 17th against the pass. Defensive coordinator also is likely to come up with a plan to keep Megatron in check and he should see a boatload of bracket coverages.

Start him. Duh.
