Titus Young injury update: Out on Thursday, no fantasy value

Leon Halip

With Young unable to go, rookie Ryan Broyles will have to step up. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has officially been ruled out for Thursday's Thanksgiving matchup against the Houston Texans. Young was ruled out on the grounds of 'conduct detrimental to the team' and so Ryan Broyles and the recently-acquired Mike Thomas will be asked to step up in his absence.

This could be the beginning of the end in Detroit for Young, a talented but inconsistent wide receiver in his one and a half professional years of football, and an opportunity for the rookie Broyles.

Fantasy Take: Since his explosive game against the Seattle Seahawks, Young has been absent with only five catches in three games. Now he will be officially absent.

Calvin Johnson is a great play as always, but it's best to avoid any other Lions' receivers for the time being.
