Calvin Johnson was back at practice on a limited basis on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was back at practice on Thursday, albeit on a limited basis. Johnson, however, said that the foot that's been bothering him is "good" and it doesn't sound like he is any danger of not making the start on Sunday against the Titans. Johnson already has 205 yards through two games.

Fantasy Analysis: There really never seemed to be anything to worry about here but it's important to take note of the fantasy stars any time they wind up on the injury report. For a person of his status though, it makes sense that he will take rest when needed and it shouldn't impede him from performing. The Titans have been rather awful this year, and Johnson could be the top wide receiver play this week.
