Lions WRs Calvin Johnson, Ryan Broyles feeling healthy

One is the most dominant wideout in the league, and the other one has seen his body hold him back from being dominant to any extent. Calvin Johnson @Bigplaycj and Ryan Broyles @RyanBroyles are both taking part in 11-on-11 drills during Lions OTAs and feeling good after nursing some injuries in the offseason. Johnson underwent surgeries to fix a broken finger and relieve an ailing knee. He seems to be doing just fine now. According to Dave Birkett and Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press, the man known as Megatron blew past a defensive back for a long catch from Matthew Stafford @Staff_9 during Wednesday's session.
Broyles is coming back from a more serious ordeal, again. He tore his Achilles half way through last season. Of course, Broyles is used to rehabbing season-ending injuries. He has already torn the ACL in each knee. But for now, Birkett and Monarrez write that Broyles "has looked good" in workouts.

Fantasy Analysis:

Broyles was a fantasy favorite of mine and many other just a couple of years ago. Now he's hanging on just to make the back end of the Lions' roster. You can't ignore his injury history and how it has likely sapped him of his athleticism. He is not worth drafting in any format.
I'm not nearly as worried about Calvin. Although he has battled with balky knees in recent years, he remains an obvious choice as the first wide receiver off of the board. He scored 12 touchdowns and amassed nearly 1,500 yards despite missing two games last season.
