Titus Young back at practice for Lions: Fantasy Implications

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young practiced Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was back on the practice field on Thursday, a day after sitting out because of a knee injury. Young caught six passes for 75 yards last week but most of that came on a Hail Mary catch that resulted in a 46-yard touchdown on the last play of regulation. The Lions face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Young owners were rewarded with a rather fluky touchdown in Week 3 but they shouldn't be counting on that kind of end result every weekend. Young is seeing his share of targets but is clearly not at the same level of Calvin Johnson or Brandon Pettigrew in that offense. Young is a risky play again this week and is no more than a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver against Minnesota.
