Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Johnson has been dealing with a minor ankle injury but practiced without limitations on Friday, making him a solid bet to play. The Titans present the best matchup the Lions have had all season long.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson is ready to play on Sunday and should be in all fantasy lineups. He has gotten off to a bit of a slow start, not having scored a touchdown yet, but he is still piling up yards and getting the majority of looks in Detroit's offense.
