Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Lions | Ryan Broyles, Mike Thomas to step up?

Detroit Lions WR Titus Young played 68 of his team's 72 offensive snaps in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers, but he was benched late in the game and expected to be inactive in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 22. WR Ryan Broyles played 31 snaps, and WR Mike Thomas played four snaps in the loss.

Fantasy Tip: Broyles will likely slide up to the starting WR spot opposite Calvin Johnson, with Thomas serving as the team's third wideout. While moving up the ladder is likely good news for their long-term fantasy value, a matchup with the Houston Texans on a short week is not particularly great news, even though their defense was trashed through the air in Week 11 by the Jacksonville Jaguars of all teams.
