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 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.

Delmas did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 4, Ansah and Palmer were limited and the other players fully practiced.

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 | Patrick Edwards hopes to fill void

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 21:15:18 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Patrick Edwards (ankle) hopes to be one of the players to step up and fill the void of WR Nate Burleson (forearm). However, he needs to get over his high ankle sprain first. "(The Lions) are looking for us to contribute and make some plays and step up in the passing game," Edwards said. "I'm really anxious to get back and make some plays."

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.

Lions | Kris Durham might see more time

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 19:21:49 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Kris Durham was in for 38 snaps against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. He was targeted twice, and had no receptions. He was seeing more time on the field with WR Patrick Edwards (ankle) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Durham might see the same amount of time, or even a little more action, in Week 3 if Edwards cannot play. However, he appears a ways off from making a splash in fantasy football.

Lions | Trio battling for return work

Tue, 20 Aug 2013 17:34:39 -0700

The punt and kick return jobs for the Detroit Lions appear to be down to RB Steven Miller or WR Patrick Edwards, as those two players have received a bulk of the work during the past two practices. WR Micheal Spurlock has also been in the mix.

Lions | No WRs stepping up for No. 2 job

Fri, 16 Aug 2013 12:52:54 -0700

Detroit Lions WRs Nate Burleson and Patrick Edwards have not earned the No. 2 wide receiver job during training camp, and the team could look to add another wide receiver before the start of the season. Burleson has only caught one pass in the preseason while Edwards has three catches for 10 yards.

Lions | Calvin Johnson to sit out preseason game

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:08:42 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) will not play in the team's second preseason game against the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Aug. 15, due to a bruised knee. Johnson caught three passes in the team's first preseason game last week. WR Patrick Edwards will start in Johnson's place.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions are most likely just being extremely cautious with their star receiver. Expect him to be fine. Draft Calvin Johnson as the No. 1 wideout off the board in the middle to late part of the first round.

Lions | Patrick Edwards seeing first-team reps

Fri, 02 Aug 2013 18:14:01 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Patrick Edwards has worked frequently with the first team offense during training camp, taking snaps in place of WRs Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles.

Fantasy Tip: Edwards will still need to finish camp well, and perform well in preseason games to rise on the depth chart. However, he is one of the biggest surprises in Detroit's camp, and he could emerge as a useful WR4 or flex player in fantasy leagues if he can win, let's say, the No. 3 job in Motown.

Lions | Looking for more playmakers

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 11:49:41 -0700

The Detroit Lions have 13 wide receivers on their roster heading into training camp, and they're looking for depth in case injuries strike again at the position. The favorite for the No. 4 job behind WRs Calvin Johnson, Ryan Broyles and Nate Burleson has been WR Patrick Edwards. He is a bit undersized at 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, but impressed during offseason workouts. It appears he and newcomer WR Chaz Schilens will jockey for the No. 4 job, and WRs Kris Durham, Corey Fuller and Michael Spurlock also could factor in.

Lions | Patrick Edwards impressing coaching staff

Fri, 31 May 2013 11:14:48 -0700

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.

Lions | Reggie Bush returns punts in OTAs

Wed, 22 May 2013 20:46:51 -0700

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.
