Ryan Broyles "really looked good" at OTAs

Tim Twentyman, Detroit Lions - [Full Article]

Lions WR Ryan Broyles participated fully in mini-camp, despite the fact that he's less than six months removed from ACL surgery.

He wasn't just out there running around, either. He was making plays across the middle of the field and really looked good.

He's still not 100 percent, but expect a big year from No. 84. With Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush and Brandon Pettigrew getting a lot of attention, Broyles is poised for a breakout season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Broyles was only targeted 32 times, but he caught 22 passes for 301 yards and two TDs en route to a 16th-ranked FP/T. He is ahead of schedule in his recovery from ACL surgery, so he could hold serious fantasy value in 2013 provided he can beat out Nate Burleson. Even if he can't, the Lions throw the ball enough that he should be fantasy-relevant even as a real-world WR3.
