Calvin Johnson is probable for Week 2 against the 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Johnson sat out Wednesday's practice with a foot injury, but practiced fully on Thursday and Friday. There is no concern about his availability this week.

Fantasy Impact: Sounds more like it was a glorified day of rest than any actual injury, so expect business as usual for Megatron. The 49ers have the best defense in the league and their fierce pass rush could harass Matthew Stafford, but Johnson is a matchup nightmare for any team. The only week you shouldn't be starting him is his bye week.
