Lions WR Calvin Johnson limited in practice Friday

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson @Bigplaycj participated in Friday's practice session that was viewable to the media. Johnson was able to do more than he did in previous days. He remains questionable and a game-time decision for Sunday's game at Cleveland.

Fantasy Analysis:

Losing Johnson for two straight games can't happen, especially after last week's debacle against Green Bay. The Lions' offense was completely stagnant, scoring just nine points. It goes to show how little the Lions have at WR considering the leading receivers from that game were Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler. Johnson is a must-start, assuming he plays, even if he has to use crutches out there on the field.

Lions should try to get Josh Gordon. He's a perfect counter to Meg.
