Description: Lions tight end Joseph Fauria is inactive for Week 8.
Insight: Fauria joins fellow tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew on the sidelines. He hasn't been fantasy worthy for a few seasons, but could have been a primary target in Week 8 due to all the injuries to the Lions skill position players.

Description: Lions tight end Joseph Fauria had a monster game Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: All three of Fauria's receptions went for touchdowns. Most weeks those end zone passes would have gone to either Calvin Johnson or Tony Scheffler but with both of them hurting, Fauria was able to have the game of his life. We wouldn't expect Fauria to be nearly as effective once Johnson and Scheffler are back at full strength. That could be as soon as next week against the Bengals.
