Detroit Lions WR Patrick Edwards, who missed out on a chance to join the active roster last year due to an injury, has impressed the coaches during a minicamp over the weekend. Edwards finished his career at the University of Houston with 291 catches for 4,507 yards and 43 touchdowns, but he went undrafted in 2012. "He's a lot stronger right now than he was last year," head coach Jim Schwartz said. "He runs much better routes. He has a much better understanding of the offense, which you would expect. He's always had the ability to make a play. He's another guy that's in the mix returning kicks and punts."
Fantasy Tip: With Ryan Broyles rehabbing from a torn ACL, Edwards has an excellent opportunity to move up the depth chart and become the No. 3 wide receiver to start the year. In an offense that should continue to be explosive through the air, Edwards could be a deep sleeper if defenses put all their effort into shutting down Calvin Johnson. Keep Edwards' name in the back of your mind.

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.
