Burleson returned from injury this week and picked up right where he left off with Matthew Stafford, catching seven passes for 77 yards and a touchdown. In each of his four games this season, Burleson has had no less than six receptions in each. He was targeted 10 times in Week 12 and looked like a legitimate number two option across from Calvin Johnson. With the Lions firmly entrenched as one of the NFL's top passing offenses, expect Burleson to continue receiving looks for as long as he remains healthy.

Houston isn't exactly the fantasy goldmine it once was, but their one bright spot is Graham -who has been targeted 22 times the past two weeks. Though he only hauled in five of nine targets for 32 yards this past week, Graham faces the sixth softest remaining schedule of any tight end and should continue to see a ton of targets as the Texans deal with injuries in the backfield and the struggling Case Keenum.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve
