Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson practiced on Thursday, a day after sitting out to rest his sore ankle. Johnson also missed a day of practice last week and still had eight catches for 94 yards in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. The Lions play the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should not be worried if Johnson gets a day off during the week from practice. He has racked up 205 yards on 14 catches through two games, although his owners would like to see a touchdown. Johnson is still the top fantasy option at wide receiver this week and will likely be in that position for most weeks.
