Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young would have been limited with a knee today, had the team held practice, per Tim Twentyman. Young, like his teammate Calvin Johnson, was left a little banged up after their division match with the Chicago Bears in Week 7.
All of a sudden, Young has some shoes to fill with Nate Burleson being lost for the season. He will be expected to step up and be the No. 2 guy opposite Johnson. The Lions will be counting on him for production in this passing offense.
Fantasy Analysis: Young is all of a sudden a hot commodity again. The injury is something he can shake off, as he does not appear to be in danger of missing this weekend's game versus the Seattle Seahawks. Week 8 will present a major challenge for Young; he will have to assume Burleson's snaps against a daunting Seahawks secondary.
He should be looking to prove himself with this opportunity. Fantasy owners should consider Young a decent flex this Sunday.
