Even if Mike Thomas starts in Week 12, the Lions website believes Ryan Broyles "has the most potential to see his numbers increase" with Titus Young out of the lineup.
Unlike Thomas, the young slot receiver has already built a rapport with Matthew Stafford. "Every time I throw him the ball, he makes a play," Stafford said of Broyles. "Maybe I should throw it to him some more." Neither receiver is a going to be more than a risky WR3/flex option for Thursday's game versus the Texans.
