Joseph Fauria: Week 17 Fantasy Outlook

Bleacher Report AdministratorSenior Analyst IIJanuary 8, 2014

The scoring machine hurt his ratio last Sunday, as Fauria caught three passes without scoring. Potentially the only health tight end on the Lions roster, he may approach the seven targets he saw last weekend in the season finale at Minnesota.
Starter Brandon Pettigrew sat out last weekend with an ankle injury, and there's little reason to play him in Week 17 as the Lions have been eliminated from the playoffs. Dorin Dickerson has admitted to playing through a concussion last weekend, and is unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday, leaving Fauria as an upside pick in scoring formats.
