Lions WR Calvin Johnson recovering from multiple surgeries

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson @Bigplaycj was walking wounded as the Lions' 2013 season fell into a tailspin. He didn't play in Week 17 due to a knee injury that nagged him for the majority of the season, and he also had a finger injury. However, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said Wednesday that Johnson underwent surgeries to fix both boo-boos in the past couple of weeks and is recovering well from each.
In 14 games, Johnson caught 84 passes for 1,492 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Fantasy Analysis:

Both surgeries are seen as minor and should have no impact on Johnson's long-term ability. Johnson, 28, will be fine in due time and remains fantasy football's undisputed top wideout.
