Description: Lions wide receiver Patrick Edwards appears to be ahead of Mike Thomas for the No. 4 spot, according to a Detroit Free Press report.
Insight: Edwards' current fantasy value isn't very high, but keep an eye on him in training camp and preseason. Barring injury he won't see many targets from Matthew Stafford who obviously seeks out Calvin Johnson first, then Nate Burleson, Brandon Pettigrew and Ryan Broyles, but both Burleson and Broyles are coming off serious season-ending injuries.

Description: The Lions are looking for a receiver to take advantage of the attention Calvin Johnson gets from the defense and Nate Burleson thinks second-year wideout Patrick Edwards could be one of those guys, according to Lions beat writer Dave Birkett.
Insight: Edwards will have to work hard to get targets from Matthew Stafford who seeks out Megaton first and then Burleson, Brandon Pettigrew and Ryan Broyles. Edwards' current fantasy value isn't high, but keep an eye on him in training camp and preseason.
