Lions | Calvin Johnson missed another practice

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 09:42:32 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) skipped his third straight practice of the week Friday, Oct. 10, for the first time this year. Head coach Jim Caldwell said a decision on Johnson's status for Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings has not been determined, however. "And also, you never know. There's a possibility. A couple weeks ago, I really didn't think he'd be available but the fact of the matter is he came out after doctors looked at him and said, hey, you know what, he can go," Caldwell said. WRs Corey Fuller, Jeremy Ross and Ryan Broyles and TE Eric Ebron would be tasked with replacing Johnson as a committee if he doesn't play.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Caldwell being non-committal on Johnson, it seems unlikely that he'll play. Keep him out of your FantasyScore lineups this weekend. Golden Tate and Ebron stand to benefit the most with added targets.

Lions | Calvin Johnson's status unknown

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:06:44 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson's (ankle) status for Week 4 against the New York Jets is unknown after he missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, Sept. 25. Johnson said Wednesday, Sept. 24, that he would be fine for Sunday, Sept. 28. The Lions would likely look for WRs Corey Fuller and Ryan Broyles to step up Sunday if Johnson can't play.

Fantasy Tip: This is becoming a bigger concern for Johnson and his owners. It still seems doubtful that Megatron will miss the game against the Jets, but you have to plan now for that possibility, or the fact that he might be limited. It makes his top price for wideouts of $8,900 (17.8% of cap) at FantasyScore less appealing.

Lions | Ryan Broyles focusing on rehab

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 23:03:57 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') is trying to take things one day at a time after two days of training camp following a torn Achilles' tendon in 2013, saying he feels "pretty good right now." Broyles missed time in 2011 and 2012 with torn anterior cruciate ligaments in both knees, and he understands how to prepare for a season while rehabbing a major injury. Broyles has a new speed coach and is working on becoming more explosive, while not putting too much stress on his knees.

Fantasy Tip: Broyles is best left for your league's waiver wire.

Lions | Kevin Ogletree working as No. 3 WR

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 21:44:23 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Kevin Ogletree has been spent time on the top unit each of the first two days of training camp, working as the No. 3 receiver. He is battling WRs Ryan Broyles, Kris Durham, Corey Fuller and Jeremy Ross, among others, for the No. 3 job behind starting WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi singled out Ogletree during the spring as a player that impressed him.

Fantasy Tip: If Ogletree was able to work into a No. 3 role, he would still be more of a WR4 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, all it would take is one injury to Johnson or Tate for him to see more targets and relevance.

Lions | Ryan Broyles looks in shape

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 14:35:48 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') is always in the workout room and looks to be in great shape, according to teammates. Broyles has made good strides this offseason but has admitted in the past that he's still working on his speed.

Fantasy Tip: It's too early to gauge Broyles' health, and therefore too risky to draft him in any league format. If he has a good training camp and preseason, he may be worth a deep stash.

Lions | Believe in Ryan Broyles

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 06:22:25 -0700

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he believes in WR Ryan Broyles. "I believe in Ryan, and he's one of the hardest-working guys I've ever seen in terms of rehab, practice. He's just outstanding," Mayhew said. "I'm not going to build a whole offense around him, obviously, but I believe in that man."

Fantasy Tip: That leads us to believe he has his foot in the door for a roster spot.

Lions | Ryan Broyles farther along

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 05:41:57 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') said he's farther along in his rehab from Achilles' surgery than he was for his anterior cruciate ligament tears the two previous years. He has been cleared to do everything, but he's continuing to work on his speed and conditioning.

Lions | Ryan Broyles learning new techniques to prevent injury

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 11:35:23 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') has worked on the placement of his feet, knees and hips, and is learning movements and proper form in order to eliminate future injuries. Broyles has already come back from two ACL tears and says the Achilles rehabilitation has been easier.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Broyles is working hard to come back is great, but there are plenty of better, healthier options at wide receiver, especially with a crowded receiving corps that just added WR Golden Tate and TE Eric Ebron. If Broyles does make a return, he’ll be worth keeping tabs on throughout the season.

Lions | Ryan Broyles to miss rest of season

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:23:17 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon in the team's Week 8 game and will miss the rest of the season. He is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday, Oct. 29, to repair the injury.

Fantasy Tip: With Broyles out, Kris Durham likely will get a bigger role in the passing game moving forward. Durham should be added in all deeper leagues.

Lions | Preaching patience with Ryan Broyles

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 12:43:55 -0700

The Detroit Lions are being patient with WR Ryan Broyles because they weren't expecting him to play before October while he came back from his second anterior cruciate ligament tear in as many years. He sat out the first two games and played just 17 snaps in week 3, but the team had to accelerate his progress when WR Nate Burleson went down with a broken forearm. Broyles' production has been minimal, though, even though he's played almost 40 snaps per game without Burleson in the lineup. Many times, the coverage has dictated that Detroit go away from the slot receiver, Broyles' position.

Fantasy Tip: There is a glimmer of hope for Broyles still because this is around the same time last year that he started becoming consistently involved in the offense. However, Kris Durham has stepped up and Calvin Johnson (knee) seems to be returning to full health. There are many mouths to feed in Detroit. Don't forget about Broyles, but he hasn't given you any reason to hang onto him in shallow leagues.

Lions | Calvin Johnson makes progress, still questionable

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 11:25:28 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 11, and he practiced without wearing a knee brace. However, he struggled when he had to cut in his routes and will be a game-time decision in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron clearly isn't 100 percent and won't be even if he plays Sunday, but if he's on the field, you should have him in your lineup. The fact that he's practicing without the knee brace is a good sign. Check back Sunday morning to see if he plays. If he doesn't, Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles and Patrick Edwards will try to pick up the slack in the passing game. It'll be a crapshoot to rely on any of those three.

Lions | Ryan Broyles expected to see more work

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 09:57:35 -0700

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan suggested that he thinks WR Ryan Broyles is ready for a full workload this week regardless of whether WR Calvin Johnson (knee) returns to the lineup. "He's right on track so we're real happy he's been able to get this time and progress. Certainly if somebody else isn't available, his availability is going to be leaned on a little bit more." Linehan said that the initial plan this season for Broyles was similar to last year when he was recovering from his knee injury and didn't see any real action until the sixth game of the season.

Fantasy Tip: If you're in a deeper league, it may pay off to hold onto Broyles. His chances for contributing are probably much greater this week if Johnson returns, too. Broyles remains a very risky play, though, until we actually see his involvement in the game plan increase.

Lions | Ryan Broyles wants bigger role

Thu, 10 Oct 2013 16:16:41 -0700

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.

Lions | Ryan Broyles doesn't step up

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 10:32:55 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles had just two catches for 27 yards on two targets in the team's Week 5 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Broyles ran only 15 routes compared to 46 for WR Kris Durham and 41 for WR Patrick Edwards.

Fantasy Tip: Many believed Broyles' production would soar with Calvin Johnson (knee) sitting out, but that wasn't the case at all. Durham, Edwards and even Kevin Ogletree were looked to more often than Broyles. This suggests they are still easing Broyles into his role. Until we see more from him, he's better off riding pine on your bench.

Lions | Calvin Johnson inactive

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 08:30:05 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) has been declared inactive for Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: With Johnson out, Ryan Broyles and Patrick Edwards likely will start at wide receiver with Kris Durham seeing more playing time. Broyles can be a starting option for owners this week, but Edwards and Durahm probably are nothing more than weak flex options in most leagues. Reggie Bush could become more involved in the passing game because of Johnson's injury.

Lions | Kris Durham's role expanded

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 16:52:59 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Kris Durham played in 92 percent of the team's 66 offensive snaps in Week 4 win over the Chicago Bears and scored his first touchdown of the season with WRs Patrick Edwards (ankle) and Nate Burleson (forearm) out. Durham played two snaps less than WR Calvin Johnson and 20 more than WR Ryan Broyles. Durham finished with three catches for 58 yards, a career high for him. "It gives me some confidence," Durham said. "I think it gives Matthew some confidence in me. I was in the right place at the right time and made good throws, good catches."

Fantasy Tip: Durham has short-term sleeper value with Burleson out if Edwards misses another game this week. The matchup against the Green Bay Packers is intriguing, too, especially if Broyles isn't exactly 100 percent up to speed.

Lions | Patrick Edwards doubtful

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 15:11:42 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Patrick Edwards (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is doubtful for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: If Edwards doesn't play, as expected, it gives more value to Ryan Broyles, who is guaranteed to have a much bigger role while Nate Burleson (arm) is out. Grab Broyles immediately if he's still available.

Lions | Nate Burleson involved in car accident

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 06:07:39 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Nate Burleson (arm) broke his arm in two places in a car accident Tuesday, Sept. 24, and will undergo surgery. He's out indefinitely. Alcohol was not involved in the incident. WR Ryan Broyles will take over as the primary slot receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Tough luck for Burleson and the team, after he began the season with 23 catches for 239 yards. Detroit's prolific offense should find Broyles the ball, and he's a good pickup as a bye-week fill-in.

Lions | Ryan Broyles ready

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 13:09:39 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (knee) said he is ready to return to action after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. Even offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said Broyles is ready. "This is a big week," Linehan said. "With Pat (Edwards, receiver) banged up a little bit right now, Ryan has stepped up his role and his reps this week. He's definitely close, and if called upon, he's ready." Edwards injured his ankle last week and hasn't practiced since. Broyles is primarily a slot receiver, so WR Nate Burleson could be moved outside to accommodate him. Broyles isn't ready to play 30 or 40 snaps in a game yet, but he said he's close to full strength.

Fantasy Tip: Broyles will steadily begin to see action, probably beginning this weekend. He may have the most upside out of any player on your waiver wire, especially in the Lions' high-flying attack. If you're hurting at wideout, it would be a good idea to grab Broyles now.

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 08:42:20 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (knee) and RB Mikel Leshoure are both inactive for Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Broyles needs to be owned in all leagues despite being inactive. He should be a valuable weapon for Matthew Stafford when he's on the field and makes for a good WR depth piece. Leshoure is a healthy inactive, which confirms that Joique Bell is the better back to own if you're handcuffing Reggie Bush.
