Fantasy advice. Calvin Johnson?

He says he is playing, but I don’t expect him to have a great day, just like last week.

My other options are Brandin cooks or Justin Forsett or Wes Welker.

PPR or not?

PPR, Welker. It’s gonna be that type of game.

Non PPR, coin flip, but I would still lean to Wes. He is likely to be the go to guy on tough plays for that game, since he plays more like a TE. If you think the TDs and yds for any others are likely to be high, tho, go for it. is a good resource.


Seconds thoughts are in order about sitting Calvin, tho:

C&P’ed :

Sun, Oct 5

Calvin Johnson (ankle) is active for Week 5 against the Bills.

Advice: Johnson didn’t have any limitations in pre-game warmups and will be “more than a decoy” this week. He needs to be locked into all fantasy lineups. Inactive for the Lions are RB Joique Bell, TE Joseph Fauria, RB Theo Riddick, LB Travis Lewis, CB Cassius Vaughn, QB Kellen Moore, and DE Larry Webster.

New Player Note Sun, Oct 5

According to Tim Twentyman of the Lions’ website, Calvin Johnson (ankle) will be “more than a decoy” Sunday against Buffalo.

Advice: All signs point to Megatron playing against the Bills, and doing so with a significant role after spending Week 4 as a decoy. He should be locked into all fantasy football lineups without hesitation.

New Player Note Sun, Oct 5

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Calvin Johnson (ankle) has told teammates he’s playing Sunday against the Bills.

Advice: The expectation continues to be that Megatron will play this week, but it’s sounding like there’s a real chance it will be in the “decoy” role. However, this is Calvin Johnson we’re talking about. If he’s on the field, he needs to be in fantasy lineups. The Lions and Bills kick off at 1 PM ET, so we’ll know his status shortly.

Megatron is in! Hope that wasn’t a huge mistake

0 catches 1st quarter.

I did the same.

Decoy, shmee-coy.

[Airplane!] Looks like I picked a bad week to start Megatron. [/Airplane!]

Forsett had a great game, Cooks had a solid game, looks like Welker will be decent too. I gotta stop listening to the “experts”. My gut said bench him.

We have a thread for fantasy advice.
