Lions | Calvin Johnson expects to return after bye (Wed Oct 29, 12:32 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he 'definitely expects to play' against the Miami Dolphins after the team's bye week. Johnson has missed the last three games due to a high right ankle sprain. WR Golden Tate has 24 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns in Johnson's absence.

Our View: Good news for fantasy owners here. They've given him enough time to get close to full strength. So long as he practices fully in back-to-back days next week, feel confident starting Johnson again in Week 10.
