Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (rest) is listed as probable to face the Bears on Sunday. He rested for Wednesday's practice and is fine.
He was up to his usual tricks with seven catches for 113 yards and one score against the hapless Washington secondary in Week 3. The Skins allowed the highest yards per attempt so far this season, but the sledding will get a little tougher for the Lions this week.
Chicago has a stout D, but the good news is that Charles Tillman is not going to shadow Megatron. He'll get a little bit of Tim Jennings, which would be a major mismatch given Tron's size and leaping ability.
The best receiver in football has a two-game streak of 100 yards and a score thanks to a big Week 2 in Arizona.
Fantasy impact: It's not a good matchup, but he's still the top option in fantasy leagues. Johnson is a strong bet for 100 and a score, but he could have an even bigger day. You're obviously playing him with very high hopes.
