Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (knee) expects to be ready for the 2013 season as he continues rehabbing the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He participated fully in all three days he was active for Detroit's minicamp last week. Broyles said he learned how to take more care this time because he had experience in tearing his left knee back in 2011 at Oklahoma.
Fantasy Tip: A healthy Broyles could offer late-round value, more definitively in PPR leagues.

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 head coach Jim Schwartz said WR Ryan Broyles (knee) is making progress in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but there is no timetable for his return. "There is really no such thing as a target (to return), but he's making good progress. He's working through, almost in the same position he was last year with the exception of he knows the offense and he had a little bit of experience last year. It's just a matter of getting healthy."
