Titus Young missed Lions practice Monday for undisclosed reasons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Titus Young missed Detroit Lions practice Monday, according to Tim Twentyman of the team's official site. Outside of a few excused absences, Young has not missed any practice time this offseason due to injury. It is unclear why he missed practice Monday, though there's no reason to assume it is a long-term issue.

Analysis: Assuming nothing catastrophic happens, Young has great sleeper potential even in standard leagues. He appears to have won the No. 2 spot on the depth chart outright over Nate Burleson, and with Calvin Johnson commanding so much attention Young could find himself with plenty of room to roam within opposing secondaries. There is a lot to like here as a potential WR3 or flex option.
