Nate Burleson was impressive in his first game back since breaking his arm with seven receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown in the 24-21 loss to Tampa Bay.
Burleson picked up right where he left off prior to suffering a broken arm, having now recorded at least six receptions in each of his four games played this season. With opposing defenses concentrating heavily on Calvin Johnson, expect Burleson to make the most of his opportunities as a solid fantasy contributor moving forward. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
