    Pat Edwards not in danger despite Lions signing receiver

    Lions wide receiver Pat Edwards is not in danger of losing time after the team signed Kevin Ogletree, according to mlive.com. Offensive coordinator Scott Lineham said signing Ogletree was done to shore up the depth at the position, and wasn't necessarily an indictment of Edwards' play. Edwards' biggest issue has been "availability" according to Linehan. Edwards has been limited by a high ankle sprain that he suffered during Week 2. Edwards has caught 3 balls for 30 yards.

    Pat Edwards an intriguing deep Week 5 option

    On any other team, in any other week, Lions receiver Pat Edwards would be an afterthought. But with the Lions being a pass-happy team without their No. 2 wide receiver (Nate Burleson), there's a bit of a void in the receiving corps that needs to be filled. Edwards was inactive Week 4, nursing an ankle injury. He's been probable this week with the same ailment. And he's played just two games this season, catching three passes for 30 yards. However, Ryan Broyles is coming off knee surgery and still getting acclimated, Brandon Pettigrew is a bit of an erratic wildcard, and Kris Durham doesn't have much of a track record to go on. Edwards' Week 5 opponent, the Packers, have allowed the third-most Fantasy points and seventh-most receiving yards per game. This isn't for 12-team leagues looking to fill a bye week, but Fantasy players in 18-team formats in desperate need of a wide receiver might want to consider the upside of Edwards. It's a huge risk -- but it's a calculated one, based on the matchup and set of circumstances.
