Lions | Ryan Broyles wants bigger role

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (knee) said he's ready to take on a bigger role in the offense after coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last season. "I feel good," Broyles said. "I feel capable of going out there and making plays. I feel like I want to do more." He's played in 87 of 202 offensive snaps (43.1 percent) since returning this year and has been targeted just six times. Broyles has five catches for 61 yards. And he played in 28 snaps last week, which was close to half as many as he had the week prior.

Fantasy Tip: Broyles is a risky play until Detroit shows that they are committed to getting him more involved in the game plan. That probably won't happen right away, either, especially since it's looking like Calvin Johnson (knee) could return this weekend. Keep Broyles benched for now.
