Calvin Johnson Injury: Ryan Broyles Is a Must-Start in Fantasy
Due to Calvin Johnson's injury, fantasy owners who started Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles in Week 4 should get over their bitterness stemming from his zero-catch performance and try him in their lineup one more time.
The Lions reported from their official Twitter account that Johnson would not suit up for their game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Detroit’s injury report already included Nate Burleson out with a forearm injury. Now Broyles’ greatest competition among wide outs for targets is Kris Durham.
Fear not—Broyles won't lay another goose egg on fantasy owners’ score sheets like he did against the Chicago Bears. Not only will Broyles be a higher priority for Matt Stafford to throw to this week than the last, but Green Bay’s pass defense surrenders over 33.2 more yards per game than Chicago’s.
The Packers’ secondary allowed Anquan Boldin to finish with 13 receptions for 208 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. It’s weak. And the Lions’ fifth-ranked passing attack has to go through someone.
