No timetable for Lions WR Ryan Broyles' return; RB Mikel Leshoure still MIA from OTAs

The absurd recovery powers of Adrian Peterson and (possibly) Robert Griffin III following ACL surgery shouldn't be taken for granted. A torn ACL remains a very tough injury for any athlete that requires a long road of rehab. Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles @RyanBroyles is currently on that road after tearing his right ACL during a game on Dec. 2. Head coach Jim Schwartz said Wednesday that Broyles is making good progress but "There is really no such thing as a target (to return) ...."
Running back Mikel Leshoure @MikelLeShoure25 is also on the mend. He has yet to participate in any of the Lions' organized team activities two weeks in because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

Right now, sources close to the Lions consider Broyles to be at least questionable for Week 1. Once he's healthy, he could be the Lions' No. 2 WR, which would give him ample fantasy value. He is a guy to stash late in deep-league drafts.
Leshoure is a potential handcuff who will be most valuable in touchdown-dependent leagues. He may not get on the field until training camp.
