Tight end draft strategy comes down to where you feel comfortable taking a player at the position. Dave Richard breaks it down, noting that owners will know who to target based on where they intend to pick.
There are a lot of receivers eligible for Fantasy consideration, but only a handful of them are really appealing. Dave Richard debunks one strategy while suggesting some others for you to use on Draft Day.
Though a story previewing receivers on the Lions official team website says that the Lions will give Ryan Broyles every opportunity to make the team this summer, they still list him as being on the roster bubble. That's because Broyles has battled injuries throughout his short NFL career after being taken in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He's played 16 games over two seasons and has 30 catches for 395 yards and two scores.
As a Seahawk last year, Golden Tate was targeted 98 times and led the team with 64 receptions for 898 yards. He believes he'll get more opportunities in Detroit even as the clear No. 2 receiver behind Calvin Johnson.
"I hated being tackled (last year) because I didn't know when my next ball was going to come," Tate said on ESPN, per MLive.com. "I have a chance to catch more balls and make Pro Bowls (in Detroit).
"I think if I can stay healthy, God forbid, it's going to be fun. I have a chance to catch a ton more balls," Tate said. "I'm going to see a lot of single coverage. I'm probably going to see a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks because everyone's going to be on No. 81 (Calvin Johnson). I'm excited.
"I think the sky's the limit. I think it's going to get back to the old Golden."
Lions running back Joique Bell, who missed offseason workouts recovering from a knee injury, has been cleared to run full speed, reports MLive.com. He plans to report to training camp early to test his body.
