DET TE Joseph Fauria - Week 3, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 – Joseph Fauria vs. Green Bay Packers
Joseph Fauria had just a 20-yard reception in loss to the Panthers last Sunday. Rookie Eric Ebron collected three grabs, while Brandon Pettigrew was held without a reception. Ebron will continue to see more playing time, so don’t bother even having Fauria on your roster.

Week 2 – Joseph Fauria vs. Carolina Panthers
Matthew Stafford was able to connect with Joseph Fauria just one time for a 26-yard reception last Monday night in the win over New York. Fauria did catch a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter, but WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate stole the show. Don’t expect much from Joseph this week on the road in Carolina, although he could catch a TD any week.

DET TE Joseph Fauria - Week 1, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 – Joseph Fauria vs. New York Giants
Despite catching only 18 passes during his rookie season, Joseph Fauria registered seven TDs, thanks to his 6’7” frame. However, he’ll have to compete with a second TE for playing time, as Detroit used its top pick on Eric Ebron. Fauria had three receptions for 43 yards in the OT loss to New York last year, but just won’t see enough playing time to warrant a fantasy start.

DET TE Joseph Fauria - 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
The undrafted TE from UCLA had quite a rookie season, catching seven TD passes. At 6’7”, Joseph Fauria is able to just out-leap defenders. While Fauria’s TD total declined as the season wore on, one third of his 18 grabs came in the final two contests. However, during the off-season Fauria worked on his route-running in an effort to expand his game to be more than just a red zone threat. He has also has improved on his run blocking ability, in hopes of getting more playing time.

Fantasy Downside
Even though he caught those seven TDs, he totaled only 18 grabs for 207 yards during the year. After shooting out of the gate as a scoring machine, Fauria found the end zone just twice during the last 10 games of the campaign. He will be battling veteran Brandon Pettigrew and rookie Eric Ebron for playing time.

Bottom Line
Detroit drafted Ebron in the first round and the plan is for him to eventually be the main TE. While Fauria is a huge target and great weapon around the goal line, he probably isn’t going to see enough consistent action to be taking up a valuable fantasy roster spot.
