Wide receiver Brian Robiskie signed on Wednesday with the Detroit Lions, who lost Nate Burleson for the season with a broken leg. Burleson suffered the injury in Monday night's loss to the Chicago Bears.
Robiskie, a former second-round pick by the Cleveland Browns, had his best season in 2010, when he caught 29 passes for 310 yards and three touchdowns. Robiskie worked out on Tuesday with the Lions, who face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Burleson has been placed on injured reserve.
Fantasy Impact: The Lions needed to add a wide receiver but fantasy owners don't need to rush out and grab Robiskie. Titus Young will move into the No. 2 spot for the Lions this weekend.
Young is worth a look as a flex play in deeper leagues, while Robiskie will have to show he has a role in Detroit's offense before having much fantasy value.
