Calvin Johnson back at full practice, fantasy business as usual

Megatron has made a habit this year of be limited on Wednesday, only to dominate on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was back at full practice on Thursday after taking it easy on Wednesday with a sore ankle. Johnson has regularly been limited or out of Wednesday practices thus far this year, but it's just a precaution the Lions seem to be taking with their top offensive weapon. Fantasy owners should feel assured that Johnson will be at full strength against the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Take: Megatron is the top fantasy wideout again this week. Johnson had 108 yards and two touchdowns in his first meeting against the Vikings last year, but was held to 29 yards and out of the end zone in week 13. That shouldn't prevent him from being the top target in fantasy, he has been on fire since then: 1,140 yards in his last seven total games.
