Nate Burleson (WR, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Real Talk Raph - RotoBaller
BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues
ANALYSIS: When most people think of the Lions offense, they immediately think Megatron, Reggie Bush and of course Matt Stafford, but the often forgotten about and most undervalued player in this offense is non other than former Vikings and Seahawks great Nate Burleson.  Posting 73 catches on 110 targets in the 2011 season, he has already shown the ability to a decent option in deeper leagues or ones that start more than 3 WR.  With 6 receptions for 78 yards in week 1, and 7 receptions for 45 yards in week 2, the Lions will have to rely on someone besides Calvin Johnson as he will be drawing heavy coverages in most weeks and even in Non-PPR formats, Burleson remains a threat to score a few TD's and rack up some points in the Lions high powered offense.
