Detroit Lions top receiver, Calvin Johnson, was a full participant at Thursday's practice and expects zero limitations Sunday against the Bears. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Megatron owners - licketh thy chops! When you have, arguably, the most talented wide receiver in the league going up against a hideous pass defense and that pass defense now has literally nothing to play for, you get a recipe for a big day. Johnson should have just that Sunday in Chicago.

Bears Vs Lions: Six-Pack Keys to Victory

We're offering our six keys for a Bears victory as they take on the Lions for the second time. 1) The Right Side Looking at the stats and play groupings over on PFR, one thing is pretty apparent, especially if you look from the middle on over to the right and in the shorter plays and throws. Joique Bell on plays from the middle through the right tackle spot  had 13 carries for 75 yards. On completions thrown short and to the right Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate combined for 12 receptions for 114 yards. There was a lot of damage done over there on Thanksgiving day, and the Bears will have...

Detroit Lions' Calvin Johnson among 8 finalists for NFL's inaugural sportsmanship award

Calvin Johnson is having something of a down year, at least by his incredibly lofty standards. But there's still at least one category in which he remains among the league leaders: Sportsmanship.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson a full participant at Thursday practice

After spending much of the season nursing an ankle injury, Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson appears to be back to his old self. Johnson was a full participant at Thursday's practice for Detroit and doesn't expect to be held back in any capacity when the Lions play Minnesota Sunday. FANTASY ANALYSIS: This is phenomenal news for fantasy owners of Johnson who are still alive in their playoffs. A fully healthy Megatron could be just what is needed to lead us to fantasy glory in Weeks 15 and 16.

Buccaneers vs. Lions: Three key matchups on defense

The Buccaneers have to win these three key matchups to beat the Lions. CB Johnthan Banks vs WR Calvin Johnson It's not exactly clear who will be matching up with Calvin Johnson, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are likely to use some form of bracket coverage when they can, but Johnthan Banks is the best physical match for Johnson: mostly, he's just taller than Alterraun Verner. And Johnson's height is a massive reason why he's so successful. But Megatron can't really be stopped, he can only be slowed down -- and even then at the cost of coverage elsewhere. If Banks can hang with Megatron...

Lions-Buccaneers injury report: Five players probable for Detroit

Nearly everybody on the Detroit Lions' final injury report for Week 14 is listed as probable. The Detroit Lions look like they're finally going to be at full strength on offense this week. I say that because running back Reggie Bush, left tackle Riley Reiff and right guard Larry Warford are all on track to play on Sunday after being declared probable for the Lions' game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Running back Theo Riddick and wide receiver Calvin Johnson are also probable. This means that defensive tackle Nick Fairley is the only player on the injury report not listed as probable...

Bucs' Verner has faced Lions' Johnson, Tate before

The Bucs won at Detroit last season, so there's plenty of familiarity with the Lions who played in that game, but even newcomers like cornerback Alterraun Verner have a history with top receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

Scouting Report, Week 14: How Lions will deploy Megatron to beat Bucs (w/film review)

As Calvin Johnson begins his leap at the 6-yard line, two Bears defenders converge. He stretches, knowing he might have to absorb a hit. The ball glides between cornerback Kyle Fuller and safety Brock Vereen, and Johnson hauls it in with his fingertips. Fuller swipes, but he's a step too late and about five inches too short. Touchdown, …
