Titus Young inactive for Thanksgiving due to on-field issues: Fantasy implications

US PRESSWIRE

Titus Young is inactive for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day game between the Lions and the Texans due to on-field issues. We break down the fantasy implications.

Titus Young has been ruled inactive for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day game between the Detroit Lions and the Houston Texans, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Lions head coach Jim Schwartz had ruled Young out earlier in the week as punishment for on-field issues.

Young has been a big disappointment in recent weeks, with seven receptions over his last three outings. Rookie receiver Ryan Broyles is expected to see more targets with Young forced to watch from the sidelines.

Fantasy Impact: Broyles hasn't done much the last two weeks, but he has been able to carve out a regular role in the Lions' offense over the second half of the regular season. With Young out, he becomes the de facto No. 2 receiver behind Calvin Johnson, which has been a lucrative spot in the past.

Broyles is certainly worth targeting in standard formats, especially in PPR leagues. Megatron commands a ton of attention, and with the receiving corps thinning, Matthew Stafford will have no choice but to target Broyles heavily.
