No Megatron in Week 5 (USAT)

Calvin Johnson has a history of playing through most injuries, but apparently his current knee problem is too much to handle. To the surprise of all, Johnson has been deemed inactive for Week 5's game at Green Bay.

Matthew Stafford's fantasy value takes a hit, of course. There's no dynamic No. 2 receiver on this team. Kris Durham, Pat Edwards and Ryan Broyles are the three biggest names, in addition to tight end Brandon Pettigrew. And obviously both backs (Reggie Bush, Joique Bell) catch the ball well. If I had to take a flier on one Detroit wideout this week, I'd go with Broyles.

Good Luck in Week 5, gamers. If you have a late fantasy question, try us on Twitter at @YahooFantasy.
