Lions WR Ryan Broyles says he's ready for increased role in offense

This is good timing. On Tuesday, Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles @RyanBroyles 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 @Nate13Burleson 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.

Fantasy Analysis:

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.
