Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson on Saturday, Nov. 16, officially cleared the concussion protocol and has been removed from the team's Week 11 injury report.
Huddle Up: Good news for Johnson owners, but hopefully it's in a large league with J.D. McKissic and Paul Perkins also sharing snaps, carries and touches. Proceed with caution.

Huddle Up: Johnson likely will play if he is cleared by the doctors, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. He has not rushed for more than 30 yards in any game this season and probably can be benched if players have better options.

Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson rushed nine times for 29 yards and caught all three of his targets for seven yards in a 31-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Johnson led the Lions in rushing attempts, but he wasn't able to do much with his touches. Johnson has failed to provide much impact since Kerryon Johnson went down with an injury, and while he may be the starter in Detroit, he isn't worth starting in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson said he is feeling 'pretty comfortable' as he assumes more of a workload in his rookie season. 'It's just that the game's starting to slow down a little bit,' Johnson told the Detroit Free Press. 'Because being a rookie it's all fast when you first get in and being able to slow things down mentally, what the defenses, are doing and having coaches and guys like Kerryon (Johnson) and J.D. (McKissic) in my ear talking about certain fronts or certain pressures or whatever block schemes we have for the run game. Just having those guys in my ear at all times has been a big help.'
Huddle Up: Ty Johnson received the bulk of the touches (14) with Kerryon Johnson going down with a knee injury and is expected to be the Lions' primary back going forward with McKissic also seeing his share of work. Johnson is a low-end RB2 in Week vs. the Giants.
