Broyles continues to work back from a knee injury, and until the Lions trust him with more targets, you shouldn't either. It's feast or famine with Fauria. He's seeing some of the end-zone targets that might otherwise have gone to Johnson. (Johnson actually let a TD pass bounce off his arms in Week 6.) In every NFL game that Fauria has a catch (three) -- he has a touchdown (five). But if Johnson's getting healthier, it would seem to diminish Fauria's value. Akers has just two field goals in his past two games, as the Lions have been able to score when they get into the red zone.
