WR Nate Burleson - Detroit Lions
|6-0, 197||Born: 8-19-1981||College: Nevada-Reno||Drafted: Round 3|
Quick fantasy outlook: In 2011, Nate Burleson had one of his more productive seasons as an NFL receiver. He had 73 receptions on 118 targets, and 11 rushing attempts for 85 yards rushing. However, his yards per touch were some of the lowest of his career and he finished somewhere in the WR4 range for most fantasy leagues. Last season he was off to a terrible start, averaging only 8.9 yards per catch before he broke his leg and was lost for the season after just six games. This season, he'll begin as the #2 wide receiver now that the Titus Young experiment is over. However, he's entering his 11th season and there are plenty of younger guys behind him that are looking to make their mark. His upside this season will be limited.
