I am in a dynasty league and picked up Ryan Broyles at the end of the draft in hopes he would play some this year but more for next year. Young and Burleson have not shown much so I thought SOMEHOW Broyles would get some time. I do not see much Lions games...is he playing and not getting looks or is he DNP? If he is playing, how does he look?

A rook coming off a major injury don't get a lot of looks, I like him long term though

:?

cant be serious with this.

Not sure how you can ask more out of burleson, hes the 4/5 option on that offense seems to be doing what is asked of him.

Fourth or fifth? Isn't he the started next to megatron? I would think he is the second or third option. And his season stats are 26 catches, 224 yards, 8.6 average and 2 TDs. Since Megatron gets double and triple covered, shouldn't he have more? Shouldn't ANYONE on Detroit have more?

let me explain it better, CJ is the undisputed #1 option after that you got the TE and rbs getting all the short to mid stuff, then whoever is opposite CJ. Young has been starting, but burleson has been doing enough to keep himself involved. Thats just how the offense runs, dont just assume that the guy accross from cj is automatically the next option.

26 catches, 224 yards, 8.6 average and 2 TDs for a guy who is playing as the 4/5 option on that offense is pretty decent.

expecting ryan broyles to contribute in his first season coming off off injury in college is asking a little much on the that offense.

I just don't see it happening for this guy. He's worth a stash in very deep leagues, but I doubt he ever amounts to much. I own Titus Young in one dyno, I think he's not that good personally, but him and Pettigrew make Broyles emerging unlikely, IMO. I doubt I'd be one of those who stash the kid.
