Calvin Johnson vs. Panthers

After a couple hard hits that led to a mild concussion, it wasn’t clear if Calvin Johnson would be available for the Lions' contest this week against the Panthers. But on Tuesday, Johnson passed his test and has the green light to play. While many fantasy annalists will likely make a big deal about Matthew Stafford’s finger, he should continue to play through the injury and Johnson should be just fine for fantasy purposes.

Johnson’s success mainly comes down to his personal health as we’ve seen him put up big numbers for five years on a team that failed to win a game back in 2008, and was without Stafford for most of last season.

Johnson will be matched up against a respectable corner in Chris Gamble, but he’s no match for the best playmaker in football playing at top level. Look for the Lions to bounce back at home and pick up a win with Johnson posting over 100 yards and maybe two scores.

Percy Harvin vs. Raiders

Finally, Percy Harvin went through an entire game and from what I could tell, he didn’t miss any time because of an ailment. While it appears Harvin’s migraine problems are behind him, injuries have cost him time this year and driven his fantasy owners nuts. The talented receiver has yet to find the end zone but his six receptions and continued production on the ground gives you enough value to start him as a WR-3 in PPR leagues.

If healthy, Harvin could produce as a WR-2 down the stretch as rookie quarterback Christian Ponder clearly favored him in the passing game. He also continues to be one of the top options in the game plan, each week, to get the football in his hands. Expect Harvin to have another solid performance against the Raiders as this could be the week that he scores a touchdown.
