Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush was used as a punt returner during organized team activities (OTAs) Wednesday, May 22. WR Terrence Austin, WR Patrick Edwards, RB Steven Miller, WR Mike Thomas and WR Cody Wilson also took turns returning punts.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners would definitely like to see Bush off punt returns, as it is just extra chance he can become injured. Nothing is engraved in stone just yet, and Bush will still be an outstanding fantasy option, especially in PPR (points per receptions) leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell is expected to return kicks in Week 17 after WR Stefan Logan was removed from that role. WR Mike Thomas could return punts if Logan is not used in that role either.
Tue, 11 Dec 2012 14:21:08 -0800
Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas played in just 17 snaps in Week 14, and he wasn't thrown to a single time. However, he had two carries for 25 yards.
Mon, 10 Dec 2012 10:38:19 -0800
Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas participated in 17 of the 84 offensive snaps in the team's Week 14 game.
Tue, 04 Dec 2012 11:35:18 -0800

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 10:48:37 -0800
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson said he expects WRs Ryan Broyles and Mike Thomas to remain as the second and third receivers in light of the discipline to WR Titus Young.
Thu, 22 Nov 2012 17:57:33 -0800
Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles posted six receptions for 126 yards in the Week 12 start against the Houston Texans. He and WR Mike Thomas were used in a three-receiver set to open the game. Thomas chipped in with two grabs, 17 yards and a touchdown.
Tue, 20 Nov 2012 19:34:52 -0800
Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas and WR Brian Robiskie stayed after practice Monday, Nov. 19, along with WR Ryan Broyles, to work with backup QB Shaun Hill running routes and getting better acclimated to the offense. "It's a way to get new guys who come in throughout the year to get them reps and get me reps too and teach the offense at the same time," Hill said. All three are expected to see an increase in playing time with WR Titus Young to be inactive in Week 12 due to disciplinary reasons.
Tue, 20 Nov 2012 16:25:09 -0800
Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas is expected to start at outside receiver against the Houston Texans in the team's Week 12 game Thursday, Nov. 22, with WR Ryan Broyles starting in the slot.
Mon, 19 Nov 2012 18:08:52 -0800
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.
