News: Johnson had six catches on 13 targets for 83 yards Sunday against the Panthers. Impact: Johnson appeared to score a touchdown at one point in the first half, but the ball slipped through his hands as he hit the turf in the end zone. Despite that drop, he still led the Lions in targets and receiving yards. He'll look to get back in the end zone in Week 3 against the Packers.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson caught seven passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns on 11 targets in Monday's 35-14 win over the Giants. Impact: Johnson caught touchdown passes of 67 and 16 yards in the first quarter, while nearly adding another in the third. Both touchdowns were sparked by some excellent footwork by Matt Stafford, who played one of the more efficient games of his career. While obviously an elite option in any matchup, Johnson will have to deal with Carolina's defense next week. The Panthers aren't particularly strong in the secondary, but their front seven could give the Lions some trouble.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson doesn't anticipate missing regular practice time this fall, like he did last season while nursing knee and finger ailments, the Detroit Free Press reports. Impact: Johnson barely practiced toward the end of last season, when then Lions' coach Jim Schwartz gave his star wideout as much rest as possible to preserve him for Sundays. Following arthroscopic knee and finger surgeries this offseason, Johnson enters Week 1 with a clean bill of health. With new coach Jim Caldwell keeping Johnson out for three of Detroit's preseason games, Johnson says his "body feels good" and he should be a more regular practice participant this season. Considering last season was the only time Johnson failed to play all 16 games since 2010, Megatron is about as reliable as they come at wide receiver and should remain an elite fantasy option throughout this season.(RotoWire, )
