Nate Burleson Breaks Arm - Out at least a Month
The Detroit Lions will be without WR Nate Burleson for a month or so, after he broke his arm in a car accident. Nate was having a nice PPR season with 19 receptions, good for 11th in the NFL, but had failed to score a TD. Ryan Broyles should see an increase in snaps but with the Chicago Bears coming to town Week 4, expect him and Matthew Stafford to struggle. Calvin Johnson should see a ton of double teams, so Reggie Bush (if healthy) and Joique Bell should see an increase in targets as well. Hey, this could even spark a nice outing for Brandon Pettigrew, but doubtful!
