Johnson had six catches for 103 yards in Sunday's win at Chicago.

Johnson has gone over 100 yards in three of the last four games. While he's still very productive when healthy, he's not the clear-cut No. 1 WR in fantasy anymore.

Johnson caught eight passes for 158 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

Megatron has 35 receptions for 534 yards and four TDs in five games since returning from injury.

Johnson caught 11 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's win over Chicago.

His catches and targets (16) were season highs, while the yardage was his best since Week 1. It's certainly a confidence-boosting performance for fantasy owners who have suffered through some of Johnson's lean weeks.

Johnson has become the fastest player to 10,000 yards receiving, reaching the mark in his 115th game. The Detroit star surpassed that milestone in the first half Thursday against the Chicago Bears. Torry Holt reached 10,000 yards in 116 games.

The 29-year-old Johnson faced questions this week about his pedestrian numbers this season, although he missed a month with an ankle injury. Johnson had nine catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the first half Thursday.

Johnson had a quiet third game back from injury, finishing with just four catches for 58 yards in a loss to New England.

Johnson has totaled nine catches for 117 yards and no touchdowns in his last two games.

Johnson had a big return to the Lions with seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Dolphins.

Johnson should be good to go for your fantasy team the rest of the way.

Johnson is active for the Detroit Lions, who will welcome their star receiver back Sunday against Miami after he missed a month with an ankle injury.

Johnson hasn't played since Oct. 5, and he has only 22 catches on the season.

Johnson was inactive for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium.

Johnson, who aggravated his right ankle injury three weeks ago against Buffalo, has missed three games for Lions (6-2), all victories.

Johnson will start Sunday despite a sore ankle.

Johnson is active despite practicing sparingly this past week. The injury limited him to catching just two passes for 12 yards in a 24-17 win at the New York Jets last weekend.

Johnson will play Sunday.

Johnson had been listed as questionable with an ankle issue, but was able to practice on a limited basis Friday. He was hurt last Sunday against Green Bay.
