Titus Young injury: Probable status does not give him any more fantasy value

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young is probable in Week 6. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young is expected to play this Sunday versus the Philadelphia Eagles despite being listed with a knee injury. Young missed one practice early in the week, but participated on a limited basis at the end of the week.

He's played in all of the Lions' games this year, but has yet to really make an impact. However, the Lions will need all their weapons to match what the Eagles bring offensively. It could be a shootout in Week 6 between these two teams.

Fantasy Analysis: Titus Young has worked himself off the fantasy radar for the most part. There was the anticipation that he had sleeper potential in 2012, to emerge opposite Calvin Johnson in Detroit's pass-heavy offense. And however physically gifted he is, Young's immature ways have been a setback on and off the field.

Nate Burleson is the better fantasy option over Young, even he isn't a must-start week to week. Young's fantasy value has essentially bottomed out until he can prove otherwise. Be cautious playing Young unless your gut really likes the matchup.
