Detroit Free Press - [Full Article]

It was supposed to take Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young time to make an impact in the NFL. He missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury, didn't have the benefit of an off-season because of the lockout and is playing a receiver position that's typically torture on rookies.

But Young, a second-round pick out of Boise State, has seen his role steadily increase five games into the season and could be in line for even more playing time Sunday with tight end Tony Scheffler out with a concussion.

Young has 14 catches for 195 yards the last four weeks after no receptions in his debut against the Buccaneers in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: 

Young is still unlikely to make a major impact this week, but with a growing role on a rising team, his time to shine could be coming sooner than anticipated.
