Lions WR Nate Burleson aiming for Week 10

Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson @Nate13Burleson's recovery from a broken arm will likely have him ready for a Week 10 return. The Lions are on a bye in Week 9. Burleson has been out since Week 4 after breaking his arm in a car accident.

Fantasy Analysis:

Burleson has some, but not very much potential in PPR leagues as a bench player. The bulk of this offense obviously flows through Calvin Johnson @Bigplaycj and Reggie Bush @reggie_bush. This leaves Burleson competing for limited touches with guys like Joique Bell and Brandon Pettigrew. Look at Burleson as a bye week fill-in if the matchup is right in that given week. This moves Kris Durham @KrisDurham16 to the No. 3 WR spot and out of fantasy consideration.
