Huddle Up: Burleson is 33 and battling injuries. The fact that he couldn't make the Browns - one of the most WR-needy teams in the NFL - doesn't bode well for his future.

Huddle Up: The 12-year vet finished with 1 catch for 27 yards on 2 targets Thursday night, but there remains a question as to whether he'll make the final roster -- even on one of the shallowest WR corps in the league -- as hammy and hand injuries have wiped out most of his preseason and also caused him to miss OTAs and mini camp.

Huddle Up: The free-agent signee has been MIA so far this preseason and desperately needs to get in sync with his new offensive teammates.

Huddle Up: That would mean a second missed preseason game for the former Lion, who is falling behind fellow FA acquisitions Miles Austin and Andrew Hawkins in solidifying positions in the team's WR corps.

Huddle Up: Burleson, who's missed a combined 17 games over the past 2 seasons, is being counted on to be healthy and productive with a possible lengthy suspension looming for No. 1 wideout Josh Gordon.

Huddle Up: Burleson, who's played in only 15 games the past 2 seasons, is looking for a reversal of his health fortunes in 2014 as he switches teams. His chances to make an impact also hinge on the Browns' draft plans as wideout Sammy Watkins is said to be in play for the team's No. 4 overall selection.

Huddle Up: The Browns continue adding complements to No. 1 wideout Josh Gordon, first signing slot man Andrew Hawkins and now Burleson, who has missed 17 combined games over the past 2 seasons due to injury.
Posted: 4/3/2014 11:38pm ET
Huddle Up: The Browns are intent on finding a complement to WR1 Josh Gordon, and Burleson could be a fit provided he can avoid the health issues that caused him to miss 17 combined games and limited him to 66 total receptions over the past 2 seasons.

Huddle Up: The Fish are looking for WR depth, and Burleson would be a good fit if he can stay healthy after missing a combined 17 games over the past 2 seasons.

Huddle Up: Burleson is likely to command more than the veteran minimum, leaving Detroit with a continued void opposite Calvin Johnson.
Posted: 2/13/2014 8:58pm ET
Huddle Up: The Lions have given Burleson every chance to be the Robin to Calvin Johnson's Batman, but he's missed a total of 17 games the last 2 seasons due to a broken leg and forearm, respectively. The Detroit Free Press says the Cowboys and Bucs could be possible landing places for the wideout.

Huddle Up: Matthew Stafford completed passes to 9 different receivers but, shockingly, Burleson -- one of the hottest WR pickups on the waiver wire over the last 2 weeks -- wasn't one of them. He was targeted 10 times and finished with 7 catches for 77 yards and a TD last week in his return from a 2-month broken-wrist absence, but delivered an ugly 0 to his fantasy owners hoping for some similar holiday production.

Huddle Up: The Bucs have gotten destroyed by slot receivers the last two weeks. Both Rishard Matthews and Harry Douglas had big games against them working primarily out of the slot, so Burleson could have a strong outing in his first game back. He's a plug in flex play if you need him.

Huddle Up: Burleson is set for his first action since Week 3, and he looks to reclaim his role as the Lions' No. 2 target behind Calvin Johnson. He's definitely worth a look in PPR leagues.
Posted: 11/20/2013 7:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Burleson is expected to return to the Lions' lineup this Sunday against Tampa Bay. He has a strong match-up against a Buccaneers' secondary that has been burnt by slot receivers over the last couple of weeks.
Posted: 11/19/2013 5:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Burleson has been ramping up his reps in practice over the past few weeks and most likely will get clearance to return this week. The veteran wideout hasn't played since Week 3 but had at least 6 targets and 6 receptions in all 3 games he's played in this season.
Posted: 11/14/2013 12:24pm ET
Huddle Up: With Burleson out, Kris Durham will see the bulk of the looks at WR2 and tight end Brandon Pettigrew will fill that role in the offense as well.
Posted: 11/8/2013 1:56pm ET
Huddle Up: If you're waiting on Burleson, it sounds as if you're going to have to hold on for another week or two.
Posted: 11/6/2013 3:10pm ET
Huddle Up: It looks like we are close to getting Burleson back on the field, which means you should grab him if you need help at wide receiver in the coming weeks.
Posted: 11/5/2013 8:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Burleson is definitely progressing, but it sounds like his fantasy owners will have to wait a bit longer. If h's on your waiver wire and you're in dire need of WR help, pick him up now.
Posted: 10/28/2013 1:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Burleson is an interesting stash in PPR leagues. Kris Durham is currently getting his work, and he is scoring a decent amount. Burleson is only worth a pickup if you can afford the roster spot, however.
Posted: 10/24/2013 6:17pm ET
Huddle Up: As expected, Burleson is on track to miss a fifth straight game as his broken arm heals.
Posted: 10/18/2013 10:27am ET
Huddle Up: Burleson's return would bolster a Lions' receiving corps that has struggled to find a wingman for Calvin Johnson in Nate's absence. Burleson also vowed to either wait until he gets home before digging into the pizza, or just having it delivered.

Huddle Up: Burleson broke his arm in a car accident, and now we have a timetable to go with his recovery. When healthy Burleson is the Lions' most reliable wingman; maybe Megatron will be healthy by Week 10 as well.
Posted: 10/1/2013 8:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Burleson had 19 receptions in 3 games and was well on his way to providing the No. 2 WR threat the Lions have been searching for. In his stead Week 4, Ryan Broyles failed to catch a pass and WR Kris Durham had 3 grabs for 58 yards.
