Lions UDFA WR Patrick Edwards is expected to see "plenty of playing time" opposite Calvin Johnson this season.
Any receiver getting significant snaps in the Lions' pass-happy offense is worth monitoring. The Detroit Free Press notes that declining Nate Burleson is best in the slot and Ryan Broyles is also a slot receiver who has been hampered by knee issues. Edwards, who led the nation with 20 touchdown catches last season, finished his first NFL preseason with a 7/49/1 line, seeing significant first-team reps. He's a stash-and-see option for deep leaguers. Sep 2 - 8:50 AM
I love rotoworld threads where I click on them saying "Who the hell is this guy" and then come out of them thinking "Hmm, I might want that guy"
haha..so true...If all my leagues weren't 10/12 teamers with standard roster sizes, visiting rotoworld would be like stepping into Fantasy Free Agent Christmas everyday I might have to get into one of these deep leagues one of these days.

This guy was very good at Houston. VERY good. They say he doesn't have blazing speed but he was always open, and would manage to get behind the defense. I really liked him coming out of school and yes, he was that guy who broke his leg on the band cart.
Oh yeah, and that rotoworld blurb is wrong. He came out 2 years ago and was on the practice squad last year IIRC.

Hes the #2 WR in detroit offense. People roster ryan broyles whos hurt yet ignore edwards
The Lions have said they're going to bring Broyles slowly. Their OC said this week he has big plans for Broyles working the slot. I can't blame people for rostering him until he's healthy, especially in PPR leagues. I did the same in one of my PPR leagues.

Added him in a deep league over Edelman. Not starting him though.
Could be a nice option though, the volume should be plenty to go around.
