Lions WR Nate Burleson is 'full go all the time'

Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson @Nate13Burleson will be ready to go when the Lions kick off training camp later this month. Quarterback Matthew Stafford said so to the Lions' official website.
"He's a quick healer, man," Stafford said of Burleson. "Really from Day 1 of OTAs (he) has come on and looked really good. He couldn't do the quantity as he can now. Now, he's full go all the time and is ready to go.
"He looks great, and that's been a big plus for us having him healthy going into this offseason. It helps us keep our stride."
Burleson didn't play after Week 7 last season because of a broken leg.

Fantasy Analysis:

First of all, it feels really cool to say that training camps begin later this month.
Burleson participated in some OTAs in May, so this is not a surprise. He may open the season as the Lions' No. 2 wideout, but Ryan Broyles @RyanBroyles is coming for that job as soon as he fully heals from a torn ACL. Considering he also participated in OTA drills with Burleson, that shouldn't be long. Both guys are a WR4 or WR5 in fantasy leagues, but Broyles has much more potential than Burleson, who turns 32 in August.
