Lions WR Nate Burleson is supposed to be Matthew Staffo... - [Full Article]

Lions WR Nate Burleson is supposed to be Matthew Stafford's No. 2 receiver, but instead dropped two balls against Cleveland and has yet to record a catch in the preseason. In fact, Stafford has completed passes to only two receivers in all of the preseason (Johnson and Patrick Edwards), despite Johnson not even playing against the Browns. Part of the problem is Burleson, who is struggling to gain separation and not completing catches when he does.

Fantasy Impact: 

From a fantasy standpoint, as long as he stays healthy, it's only a matter of time before Ryan Broyles passes Burleson on the team's depth chart.
