NFL betting: Lions WR Johnson to start versus Browns
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson has been listed as active and will start versus the Cleveland Browns today.
Johnson went through pre-game warmups before the team determined weather he was fit enough to play.
The big WR is one of the best at his position and leads Detroit with 21 catches, 312 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
According to Mike Perry of Sportsbook.com, Johnson is worth around three points to the spread.
“If you are were to include Calvin with quarterbacks, I would put him behind Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson,” says Perry.
