Lions Beat: Calvin Johnson shines, looks 'completely healthy'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Calvin Johnson was the player of the day at Lions camp Tuesday.

He kept himself off the ground -- a Jim Caldwell mandate -- and blew by both Darius Slay and Rashean Mathis during one-on-one receiver-cornerback drills for easy tosses from Matthew Stafford.

Johnson caught everything thrown to him and looks completely healthy as he enters his ninth NFL season. He is still the Lions' top playmaker and Matthew Stafford's favorite target. He even caught a touchdown pass from Kellen Moore during red zone drills as the Lions had a little bit of everybody working with everybody.

Fantasy Impact:

The Lions are trying hard to keep Johnson as healthy as possible and so far, so good, the story said. Johnson ranks fifth on our WR list which is loaded with talent at the top. It's a big "if," but if Johnson can stay healthy, he's a steal having a mid-second round ADP.

Reggie Bush officially out for Thanksgiving

Reggie Bush RB

Ryan Broyles WR
Larry Warford OL
Nick Fairley DL
Larry Webster DL
Kellen Moore QB

Fantasy Impact:

With Bush out yet again, Theo Riddick can be dialed up as a Sneaky Start, especially in PPR formats. In the four games that Bush has missed, Riddick has averaged 4.8 catches for 53 yards and 0.5 TD. That’s 13.1 FP in PPR formats, or about what Lamar Miller has averaged as the #12 RB this season. We’re not expecting that level of production, but he can be used as a low-end RB2 or a flex in PPR and as a RB3-type in standard. Joique Bell also gets a bump with Bush out. He has averaged 18.5 touches when Bush has been out. The Lions are not running the ball well, but the volume is there.

Reggie Bush OUT for Week 11

Fantasy Impact:

Look for Joique Bell to get a big workload, but in a not-so-great matchup against the Cards. RB Theo Riddick should be very active in the passing game with Bush sidelined.

QB Dan Orlovsky signed with the Detroit Lions with the understanding he would be Matthew Stafford's backup.

Then he went out for his preseason debut and got smoked by the team's No. 3 quarterback.

Orlovsky was a disaster Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns, while Kellen Moore completed 11 of 13 passes and fired a game-winner to Corey Fuller to lift Detroit (1-0) to a 13-12 comback win.

That's sure to light up talk radio and Twitter -- and our MLive comments section -- with demands for Moore to replace Orlovsky. But coach Jim Caldwell, Orlovsky and even Moore himself did their best after the game to dispel any notion that there's a (backup) quarterback controversy brewing behind Stafford.

Darius Slay CB

Fantasy Impact:

Reggie Bush (calf) is good to go for Monday Night Football and per Adam Schefter reported that Bush is expected to get his usual amount of work this week. Due to workload/injury concerns heading into Sunday, Bush was our #20 RB in standard formats. If he plays a full game, he should produce solid RB2 numbers (at a minimum). On the defensive side of the ball, the Lions are down their two starting corners, Houston and Slay, so the table is set for Joe Flacco and the Baltimore receivers.
