This is good timing. On Tuesday, Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles told Tim Twentyman of the team's official web site that he is "ready for an increased role in the offense." That's a good thing to hear for the Lions, who will be without wide receiver Nate Burleson for a long period of time. Broyles made his season debut in Week 3 against the Redskins and caught three passes for 34 yards. He played just 17 snaps.
Broyles probably isn't 100 percent following his latest ACL tear almost 10 months ago, but he will definitely see a bigger role right away. He should be added in all 12-team leagues, and he has a lot of upside in Detroit's pass-heavy offense.
