Lions WR Ryan Broyles is back again


Lions WR Ryan Broyles is back again

A torn ACL in his left knee in 2011. A torn ACL in his right knee in 2012. A ruptured Achilles tendon in 2013. For any NFL player, much less a wide receiver, suffering those injuries consecutively probably means you should hang 'em up. But Ryan Broyles @RyanBroyles isn't ready to call it a career. The Lions' third-year wideout has been cleared to join his teammates for voluntary workouts this week. The clearance comes less than six months after the Achilles tear.

Fantasy Analysis:

You have to credit Broyles for his perseverance. Unfortunately, it might be too late for him to make an impact in Detroit after being a fantasy sleeper in each of the past two seasons, only to see them largely wiped. The Lions have finally found a legit No. 2 wideout in Golden Tate @ShowtimeTate, and they should be looking for another WR early in next month's draft.
Today is Broyles' 26th birthday. He's supposed to be in his physical prime. From a fantasy standpoint, Broyles probably isn't going to have much value to speak of until he leaves the Lions for a team with a greater need at wide receiver. Then we'll actually see if Broyles can be a valuable, consistent contributor at this level, and if his string of major lower-body injuries hasn't completely ruined his once-bright future.
