WR Titus Young was forced to play catchup due to last year's lockout. He struggled early last season while learning on the job, but Young showed his potential after learning Detroit's playbook. Young had four touchdown receptions in Detroit's final four regular season games. He finished the regular season with 48 receptions for 607 yards and six touchdowns. With a full offseason under Young's belt, he could become a reliable No.2 receiver for the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: 

Young had a better Fantasy Points / Target (1.12) than did Nate Burleson (0.84), but Burleson saw 25 more targets (111 vs. 86). For Young to break out, he'll need to see legitimate WR2-type targets. A good indicator for Young was that he was better over the second half of the season than the first, catching more passes (29 vs. 19) for more yards (332 vs. 275) for more TDs (5 vs. 1) at a better catch rate (60.4 vs. 50.0).
