Calvin Johnson did not practice Wednesday: Fantasy Implications

USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson did not practice on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide out Calvin Johnson was held out of practice on Wednesday. The Lions big-play receiver was on the team's injury report, listed with knee and ankle ailments.

Johnson has remained on the team's injury report for the majority of the season but it has not affected his playing time. The team was trying to get some extra rest for their best player. Johnson will be ready for Week 17 when the Lions take on the Bears.

Fantasy Analysis: Johnson's injury is nothing for fantasy owners to fret over. He has been a constant presence on the injury report, yet he set the single-season receiving record for yards, previously held by Jerry Rice.

Calvin Johnson is currently on pace for 2,000 yards, and has a chance to hit that mark against the Bears this weekend. If he does so, he will be the first player in NFL history to have hit the mark.
