Lions WR Ryan Broyles plays only 29 snaps

Even without teammate Calvin Johnson @Bigplaycj, Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles @RyanBroyles participated in just 29-of-68 offensive snaps. On two-WR sets, Patrick Edwards and Kris Durham @KrisDurham16 were the primary receivers, leaving Broyles in the slot.

Fantasy Analysis:

The oft-referenced-by-fantasy-experts Broyles continues to disappoint and have zero fantasy impact. The Lions were already without WR Nate Burleson @Nate13Burleson and in his last two contests, Broyles has tallied just two receptions for 27 yards. Broyles is an absolute afterthought in Detroit's offense and has no business being touted as a potential sleeper until he sees an expanded and more consistent role.

I didn't think losing megatron would be that devastating to the lions and fantasy. Wow
