Titus Young to undergo knee surgery, Lions career and fantasy season over

US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young will undergo knee surgery. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young will undergo knee surgery, via Anwar Richardson. Lions head coach Jim Schwartz confirmed as much today, saying Young would have the operation "unless he doesn't show up for it."

At this point, Young's career with the Lions is clearly over. Even though he had a lot of potential physically, he has made bad decision after bad decision. Schwartz had no quarrel with challenging Young's character in front of the media.

Fantasy Analysis: Titus Young has not been a factor this year due to his character issues and injuries. It appears that his time with the Lions is pretty much over.

Young had a lot of talent coming into this league, and if he can get in line with a new team, he might have real fantasy value down the road. Look for WR Mike Thomas to start opposite Calvin Johnson in Week 14 versus the Green Bay Packers.
