Ryan Broyles Fantasy News
Monday, May 20, 2013, 10:21am
Lions WR Ryan Broyles is currently recovering from his second ACL injury in two seasons. Detroit did not draft a receiver early this offseason, which means the Lions must be comfortable with Broyles' progress. He had six receptions for 126 yards against the Houston Texans before sustaining his latest injury. If that is the type of production Broyles can provide consistently when healthy, he can be a solid contributor.

"The great news is I'm healed up," Burleson said. "I just got news from my doctors that the bone is good. I'm running and jumping three months ahead of schedule."

Who knows what happens with Bush at the end of the day, but plenty of NFL people at the combine believe the Lions will make Bush a primary target in free agency.
It might take $5 million or so a year to land the speedy running back, and Bush's desired destination isn't known. But the Lions' M.O. in recent years has been to try to surround Matthew Stafford with as much talent as possible (drafting Jahvid Best, Titus Young, Mikel Leshoure, Riley Reiff and Ryan Broyles, etc.), and that's not about to change.

With WR Titus Young gone, the Lions could give Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles more work at receiver next year, or add to the position in the draft. Burleson is rehabbing from a broken leg, but expects to be ready for the start of the off-season program. Broyles is coming off a torn ACL but probably won't be ready until training camp.

"As soon as we got really excited about him, he got hurt (ACL tear) and he was done for the year. We didn't get a whole lot out of Ryan, but Ryan had a great rehab on his first ACL, he's a tough guy and a hard worker.
"I feel pretty confident he's going to get through this one too, but next year might be the same as this year was where he may not do much during camp and he may come on around midseason. That's kind of the way that might go."

It didn’t take long for Kris Durham to establish himself as the Detroit Lions’ No. 2 receiver.
Signed off the practice squad Tuesday, Durham started in his first career game with the Lions, caught four passes for 54 yards -- more than he had in three games as a rookie with the Seahawks last year -- and played 78 of 84 offensive snaps in Sunday night's loss to the Green Bay Packers.
That also includes WR Mike Thomas, who many thought would easily earn the starting WR job with no more Nate Burleson, Ryan Broyles or Titus Young. Durham made some mistakes, but there's some value there for a guy who played that many snaps in an offense that likes to throw the ball. This time of year, fantasy playoffs, would be a tough part of the season to trust him in your lineup, though.

Ryan Broyles out with knee injury
Sunday, December 2, 2012, 6:15pm
Detroit Lions receiver Ryan Broyles went to the locker room to have his left knee examined. It's not the same knee Broyles injured last season at Oklahoma, but for the moment it has left the Lions awfully thin at receiver.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz said it’s “too soon to tell” whether WR Titus Young will be active for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts after he didn’t attend last week’s Thanksgiving loss to the Houston Texans.
“We’ll see, as we get later in the week, who we think the best 46 to play the Colts are and if he’s one of them, he will,” Schwartz said. “If not, then he’ll go back to work and work the next week.”
One of the Lions’ most talented receivers when he’s right, Young has drawn the ire of coaches and teammates for his selfish behavior on the field.
In a loss to the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago, he purposely lined up in the wrong spot on the field multiple times and mouthed off to receivers coach Shawn Jefferson on the sideline before being removed for the game’s final series.

No timetable for Titus Young's return

However, Lions coach Jim Schwartz does not appear ready for it to happen anytime soon.
Schwartz was asked when Young, who was sent home last week after his insubordinate actions, would return to Allen Park after today's practice. Young did not participate in today's practice, and is unclear when he will again.

Lions WR Titus Young is out for Thanksgiving Day. He was suspended by the team and is considered week to week. Rookie Ryan Broyles and recently acquired Mike Thomas will see more snaps and targets with Young out of the game. Neither are great plays against the Texans, but could be useful down the stretch against the Colts and Packers.
Mike Thomas to start at WR for Lions
Tuesday, November 20, 2012, 10:23am
Thomas used to be a pretty good PPR receiver during his days with the Jags and would have some potential here in the Lions pass-heavy offense. This week's matchup (Thanksgiving Day) is against the Texnas, who were torched by the Jags last week, but are still a very good defense. Thomas could have some value, but also comes with risk. He's starting in place of Titus Young, who lined up on the wrong side several times last week against the Packers and is inactive for at least this week. Better to take a wait-and-see approach with Thomas and Young and this whole situation.
