Four receivers for one spot in Detroit?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Lions official team website believes four receivers will compete for one roster spot in camp this summer. Kevin Ogletree, Kris Durham, rookie T.J. Jones and second-year wideout Corey Fuller are considered "leading candidates" for the job. Ogletree and Durham lead the way in terms of experience but Fuller and Jones are younger and might have more explosiveness to contribute.

Lions looking for No. 3 receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Lions have Ryan Broyles, Jeremy Ross and Kris Durham competing for the No. 3 job this season behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Broyles is returning from a torn Achilles tendon, his third straight season-ending leg injury, but he’s ahead of schedule in his rehab and took part in most spring workouts. He’s the same surehanded receiver the Lions drafted in the second round two years ago, though not as explosive. 

Ross is another slot receiver. He’s all but guaranteed a spot on the game-day roster because of his return ability, and is coming off of an impressive spring during which he saw extended action because of injuries.

Durham is the biggest and most accomplished option of this trio. He’s a red-zone threat at 6-feet-5, is coming off a career-high 38-catch season and has a good rapport with Matthew Stafford, his college roommate.

Jim Caldwell: 'Extremely important' to find No. 2 receiver
by Larry Hartstein |

New coach Jim Caldwell called it "extremely important" for the Lions to find a receiver to play opposite Calvin Johnson.

“He’s one that’s going to draw a little extra attention, in terms of double coverage, like he’s always done,” Caldwell said. “And with that being the case, we have to find a way to make certain whoever’s on the other side that may be getting singled in some situations can do some damage against the defenders.

“I think that’s extremely important, so I think that’s something that, obviously, we’ve taken a good, hard look at and, one way or another, we’re going to come up with a guy that’s going to give us some balance in that area.”

Kris Durham is an exclusive-rights free agent who's expected to return, reports the Detroit Free Press, but the Lions don't view him as a No. 2 receiver.
