The Lions WR battle is very close behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

Jeremy Ross has likely already cemented his spot on the roster with his return ability, but two catches for 42 yards Friday night showed coaches he could make some plays in the passing game, too

Ryan Broyles continued his strong training camp. He caught three passes last week and caught two more Friday night, including a 34-yarder with 32 yards in run after the catch.

Kris Durham went up and caught a 50/50 ball in the end zone for a touchdown on the Lions’ second possession of the game. Durham used his 6-foot-6 frame to his advantage and just muscled the ball away from the defender.

Corey Fuller nearly scored on a 15-yard catch down to the 1-yard line in the third quarter. It was nearly his second touchdown in as many weeks.

Fantasy Impact: 

The WR3 role in Detroit could have some limited fantasy value in certain leagues, so it's a battle worth monitoring.
