Lions | Calvin Johnson staying retired (Sat Jun 25, 08:37 PM) - Retired WR Calvin Johnson (Lions) said Saturday, June 25, that he feels good about his decision to retire and is not coming back to the NFL.

Our View: Johnson might change his tune next year if his body feels better and he gets an itch to play football again, but the Lions would have the first shot at him. He might be worth a roster spot in very deep dynasty leagues, but the chances of him playing again are tiny despite his retiring when he still probably had multiple productive years left.

Lions | Detroit offense tougher for defenses? (Tue Jun 21, 08:50 PM) - Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford believes his offense will be tougher to defend without former WR Calvin Johnson. Stafford said defenses won't know who the Lions will go to on offense, whereas most of the time in previous years Johnson was their go-to guy.

Our View: Yeah, we'll believe it when we see it. How can you lose a top WR in the game and be BETTER on offense? We'll be skeptical about this, but at least Stafford is showing confidence as he moves forward without Johnson. Golden Tate and Marvin Jones will be the top two wideouts for the Lions in 2016. We see Tate as a low-end WR2 while Jones is more of a low-end WR3 for fantasy owners. The current ADP for Tate is WR22 (4.04) while Jones is at WR41 (9.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
