Ryan Broyles WR DET Nov 27 '125 Comments

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press believes Ryan Broyles has bypassed Titus Young on the Lions' receiver depth chart for good.

Birkett expects Broyles to be Detroit's No. 2 receiver moving forward, citing the rookie's dependability and polished route-running chops. Broyles racked up 11 targets on Thanksgiving Day, securing six for 126 yards and narrowly missing out on a first-quarter touchdown. Particularly in PPR leagues, Broyles is going to be an awfully attractive stretch-run WR3 fantasy play.

Broyles a WR3? - I've got Dre/D.Thomas/Nicks and Garcon but should I shed a RB - David Wilson/Moreno/Tate (handcuff)/Turner or wells (Foster/Charles starters) to pick him up off waivers? - I already have to drop one RB due to Tate coming off IR . . .

pick him up, you never know how explosive he could be. he was a first round prospect back at oklahoma before getting injured. Risky, but tons of potential.

yeah but who to drop? logic says Tate but I really think if the Texans get distance from the Ravens a fresh Ben Tate will carry the load the last two games of the season . . .Kubiak knows better and will try to keep Foster fresh and out of harms way . . .So I'm thinkin' of dropping Wells or Wilson?
