Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas is expected to start at outside receiver against the Houston Texans in the team's Week 12 game Thursday, Nov. 22, with WR Ryan Broyles starting in the slot.
Huddle Up: If you own Titus Young, who has been benched this week for disciplinary reasons, take a flier on Thomas, the former Jag, who should get his fair share of targets with Megatron commanding most of the defensive attention as usual.

The Detroit Lions acquired WR Mike Thomas from the Jacksonville Jaguars Tuesday, Oct. 30. It's unknown at this time what Jacksonville received in return for Thomas.
Huddle Up: This is a curious move for the Lions, who lost Nate Burleson for the season to a broken leg. It seems like Titus Young has emerged as a great No. 2 receiver and Ryan Broyles has settled into a good role as a rookie, but the Lions might not be comfortable with their depth at the position. It is not really worth adding Thomas at this point, but who knows—maybe a change of scenery to a locale with a great quarterback is just what the doctor ordered for Thomas.
