Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson missed practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was held out of practice on Wednesday with what has been reported as a foot injury (via Detroit Lions.com). Lions head coach Jim Schwartz refused to comment on Megatron's status but the injury is not believed to be serious. Johnson should be good to go on Sunday Night Football when the Lions travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers.

Fantasy Analysis: Johnson was a full participant in the Lions win over the St. Louis Rams in Week 1. He is expected to start on Sunday, making him a must start in 100-percent of fantasy leagues. The San Francisco 49ers defense will present a challenge for Johnson in Week 2, but their bend-but-don't-break style should allow Johnson to get plenty of yards even if he doesn't find the end zone.
