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

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Johnson is dealing with an ankle injury, but he managed to play through it last week. He was limited in Wednesday's practice but practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. He should be a solid bet to play on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Calvin Johnson is the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football, and that won't change this week. He is healthy and ready to play and will face a soft Minnesota Vikings secondary. He also has his quarterback back and healthy for this game. Expect big number from Johnson on Sunday. Don't forget to start him in fantasy.
