Description: Titus Young was released from jail on Thursday. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Young posted a $50,000 bond after spending nearly a month behind bars for burglary and assaulting a police officer. In a recent ESPN report, Young's father said Titus started behaving differently after suffering a concussion in his rookie season. The mother of Young's son has accused him of domestic violence and has filed a permanent restraining order against him. If Young is found guilty of the charges against him, he could face a lengthy prison sentence, which would likely put an end to his career in the NFL. Hopefully young players coming into the league will be able to learn from some of the mistakes Young has made.

Description: Free agent wideout Titus Young, who was arrested twice in a 15-hour span last weekend, has added more lines to his arrest record. According to Lions beat writer Josh Katzenstein, Young was charged with burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest on Friday night.
Insight: Young's downward spiral continues. What a waste of talent.
 
5/8/2013 8:14:00 PM
Description: Free agent wideout Titus Young was arrested twice in a 15-hour span over the weekend.
Insight: He was pulled over for drunk driving Sunday morning and later the cops caught him trying to sneak his car out of the inpound lot. Young won't have an easy time finding a new team while these off the field distractions hover over him. What a waste of talent.
 
2/15/2013 4:29:00 PM
Description: The Rams have waived Titus Young less than two weeks after claiming him from the Lions. SOURCE: St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Insight: According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team claimed the troublesome receiver so they could get time with him and put him through an "extended interview process." It seems that he didn't impress St. Louis.

Description: The St. Louis Rams have claimed receiver Titus Young off waivers from the Lions. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBSSports.com
Insight: Young was waived Monday by Detroit after proving to be a head case during the regular season. The Rams will take a low-risk chance on the talented-but-troubled wideout.
 
2/4/2013 7:32:00 PM
Description: The Lions released disgruntled wide receiver Titus Young on Monday.
Insight: It's not surprising considering some of the erratic behavior Young has exhibited both on and off the field during his tenure in Detroit. Though Young was a major fantasy bust in 2012 (33 catches, 383 yards, four TD), he's certainly talented enough to be a solid contributor down the road if he can ever get his head straightened out.
 
1/25/2013 7:42:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Titus Young is unhappy with his role in the Lions' offense and suggested that he wouldn't mind if the team released him.
Insight: Earlier in the week he tweeted that he needed the football more before taking it a step further on Friday: "If y'all going to cut me let me go. I'm tired of all the threats." It's tough to envision Young staying with the Lions. Young had a solid rookie campaign in 2011 (607 yards, six TD) but regressed in his second season, hauling in just 33 catches for 383 yards.
 
12/2/2012 12:12:00 PM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young, who apparently sabotaged the Lions' offense in Week 11 on purpose by intentionally lining up in the wrong spot, is inactive for Week 13.
Insight: No teammate will ever trust a player who hurts the team on purpose. Time to drop him from your roster. Ryan Broyles had a very good game with Young sidelined, catching six balls for 126 yards.
 
11/30/2012 2:05:00 PM
Description: Lions' second-year receiver Titus Young apparently sabotaged the Lions' offense in Week 11 on purpose by intentionally lining up in the wrong spot, according to center Dominic Raiola.
Insight: That's all I need to know to drop him. No teammate will ever trust a player who hurts the team on purpose. Ryan Broyles had a very good game with Young sidelined, catching six balls for 126 yards.
 
11/26/2012 12:05:00 PM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young should be allowed to return from his one-game team-imposed suspension and play against Indianapolis.
Insight: Ryan Broyles had a very good game with Young sidelined, catching six balls for 126 yards. Our guess is that Young doesn't get his starting spot back.
 
11/19/2012 5:20:00 PM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young has been sent home for the week by coach Jim Schwartz and he will be inactive for the team's Thanksgiving game against the Texans. SOURCE: ProFootballTalk.com
Insight: Schwartz said Young has been putting himself above the team. The receiver was reportedly responsible for sparking an argument between Lions OC Scott Linehan and receivers coach Shawn Jefferson during Sunday's game versus Green Bay. Young also had two penalties in the game and caused a third when QB Matthew Stafford had to yell to him about lining up in the wrong spot. Lineman Gosder Cherilus thought Stafford had signaled for the snap and false started. Young has had major attitude problems during his one-plus years in the NFL and he could find himself behind Ryan Broyles on the depth chart when he returns to the team.
 
11/19/2012 11:55:00 AM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young was benched late in Sunday's game against Green Bay. He was targeted six times, but had just one reception for 24 yards.
Insight: Young appeared to have an argument with both his receivers coach and the offensive coordinator. We don't know if it was a heat-of-the-battle one-series benching or a permanent change in status. Stay tuned.
 
11/11/2012 12:19:00 PM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young (knee) practiced for the first time this week on Friday and is active for Sunday against Minnesota.
Insight: Young was one of the most added players last week after posting nine catches for 100 yards and two scores in Week 8. He disappointed his new owners with a 20-yard, two-catch game. It appears that Young and rookie Ryan Broyles will both continue to produce inconsistent numbers opposite Calvin Johnson.

Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young (knee) practiced for the first time this week on Friday.
Insight: Young was one of the most added players last week and posting nine catches for 100 yards and two scores in Week 8. He disappointed his new owners with a 20-yard, two catch game. It appears that Young and rookie Ryan Broyles will both continue to produce inconsistent numbers.
 
11/8/2012 1:14:00 PM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young (knee) hasn't practiced this week.
Insight: We were high on Young coming off his Week 8 effort (9-100-2) but he disappointed last week with a 2-20 line. He's a risky WR3 this week against the Vikings, especially with a balky knee.
 
11/4/2012 12:11:00 PM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young broke out with nine receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Seahawks, but was limited in practice with a knee injury.
Insight: With Nate Burleson out for the year we expect Young to continue to produce, particularly with Calvin Johnson hurting this Sunday. Ryan Broyles could also see more targets.
 
10/28/2012 5:33:00 PM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young broke out with nine receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Seahawks.
Insight: With Nate Burleson out for the year we expected Young to get an uptick in targets and that's exactly what happened Sunday.
 
10/23/2012 9:42:00 AM
Description: Lions second-year receiver Titus Young should get the starting gig opposite Calvin Johnson with Nate Burleson done for the season due to a broken leg. Young has struggled this year with a knee problem, but has 17 receptions for 204 yards and one touchdown.
Insight: Young and rookie Ryan Broyles will both see plenty of opportunities as teams double Johnson. Broyles was certainly the better of the two Monday night, catching three balls for 51 yards and a touchdown.
 
Cold10/11/2012 11:45:00 AM
Description: Lions coach Jim Schwartz thinks that Titus Young's injured knee has had a negative impact on his performance this season. SOURCE: Detroit Free Press.
Insight: Young has just nine catches for 117 yards this season. His one touchdown reception came on a miracle 46-yard heave at the end of regulation Week 3 versus the Titans. Young has been one of fantasy's biggest underachievers this season and his poor play is beginning to affect quarterback Matthew Stafford's overall fantasy value.
 
9/23/2012 5:19:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Titus Young finally had a useful fantasy day but he needed a fluke tipped ball 46-yard touchdown at the end of regulation to finish with six catches for 75 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Young was in the right place at the right time Sunday, but that hardly warrants fantasy attention. Leave him on your bench for the time being.
