Lions WR Calvin Johnson puts in limited practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions wideout Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday ahead of his Week 16 visit to Chicago. Johnson has caught 23 balls for 357 yards and three touchdowns over the past three weeks, and is not expected to be limited in any way Sunday.

The Bears rank 31st in passing defense, giving up 272 yards per game. They've given up a league-high 33 passing touchdowns.

Detroit is favored by 6.5 or 7 points at Vegas sportsbooks.

Lions passing game goes missing again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though the Vikings hadn't been so great against the pass recently, allowing an average of 246.8 passing yards to the last four quarterbacks they faced, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford made sure their No. 6 ranking against the pass this year held up Week 15 in Detroit, failing to reach even the 185 yards he had against them back in Week 6. He finished with a season-low 153 yards on 17-of-28 passing, throwing for just one touchdown.

This after back-to-back games with 300-plus passing yards in which he threw for a combined five touchdowns. Not even the great Calvin Johnson, who was absent for the previous meeting with the Vikings, could redeem Stafford in this one. He had 53 yards after averaging 152.0 yards the previous two weeks.

Of course, the Lions faced the Bears and Buccaneers in those two weeks, or the league's 24th- and 30th-ranked pass defenses heading into Week 15. The Vikings are certainly better than them. Still, for as few yards as they had allowed through the air, the touchdown-to-interception ratio against them was nothing foreboding. It didn't seem like an unfavorable matchup.

But with Stafford, if the numbers say it's an unfavorable matchup, it's an unfavorable matchup. He's been the most predictable quarterback in Fantasy this season; we just keep making it harder than it needs to be. The good news is that in Week 16 he'll be facing those same Bears that he torched in Week 13, so you'll want to keep him active if you're still alive in Fantasy.

Lions' Calvin Johnson limited Week 15
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lions wideout Calvin Johnson turned in an average performance Week 15 against the Vikings.

Johnson hauled in four passes, gaining 53 yards. Though his performance was less than optimal, Johnson still led the team in receiving for the week. While quarterback Matthew Stafford was effective during the game, there weren't a lot of opportunities for big plays. Johnson was hurt by that, with his longest catch going for 23 yards. 

Johnson will look for more Week 16 against the Bears.
