Lions backup receivers do little Week 3
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/14) The Lions backup pass catchers did little Week 3 against the Packers.

Corey Fuller made the biggest impact, catching a 52 yard pass from Matthew Stafford. Fuller finished second on the team in yards due to the play. Tight end Joseph Fauria picked up 3 yards on one catch. 

They'll take on the Jets Week 4. 

Brandon Pettigrew, Joseph Fauria held in check Week 1
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/9/14) Lions tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria failed to make much of an impact in a Week 1 win at home over the Giants.

Pettigrew caught his lone target for a 9-yard gain in the opening quarter. He was held without a catch in the second half.

Fauria was held without a grab in the first half before making a 26-yard grab in the third quarter. He nearly came down with a touchdown on that drive, but Prince Amukamara batted a pass intended for him in the end zone. He was targeted again in the end zone on the ensuing drive, but Matthew Stafford's throw was off the mark. He finished with one catch for 26 yards in a 35-14 victory.
Lions haven't forgotten about Joseph Fauria on offense
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/14) Although Brandon Pettigrew is still listed as the starting tight end for the Lions and rookie Eric Ebron is a quick-rising prospect, Lions coach Jim Caldwell doesn't want fans to forget about Joseph Fauria, who is listed as the second-team tight end on the team's unofficial depth chart.

"He’s been having a real fine camp," Caldwell said, per the team's official website. "One of the things that he and I had a little discussion about back during the offseason was that he was challenged by the fact that he thought that everybody kind of pigeonholed him as an individual that was just good in the red zone. That he’s deficient in blocking and things of that nature.

"He set out to prove all the skeptics wrong in that regard because he’s been blocking well. He’s working at it. He’s a linear guy, he’s pretty tall, but he can bend his knees. Obviously, we know what he can do in terms of pass catching. That height is something that you can’t teach and he’s got good hands. He really does provide a natural threat to the opposition."

Joseph Fauria wants to compete for TE job
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/14) Lions tight end Joseph Fauria understands why the team drafted Eric Ebron with a first-round pick. He just wants a chance to compete with him for the starting job, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Joseph Fauria's Fantasy stock slides
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/13/14) The drafting of Eric Ebron crushed any hope Joseph Fauria had of being a dangerous Fantasy option week in and week out in the Lions' new offense, which is based on what the Saints have been doing and includes a lot of tight end elements. Fauria did have seven touchdowns over 18 catches at 11.5 yards per grab last season and could still make some noise in the red zone but Ebron figures to dominate the playing time. Fauria no longer is worth taking in a typical Fantasy draft.
