2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
With the Lions stable of running backs struggling with injuries and failing to provide the team with consistent production, Pettigrew emerged as a solid receiving option on short routes and was a target machine, finishing 2011 with the second highest target total amongst tight ends with a whopping 126. Unfortunately, that caused his yards per reception to drop to 9.4 as Pettigrew finished the season with 83 receptions for 777 yards and five touchdowns. While that is solid production, it is hard to predict a breakout season for Pettigrew in 2012. If he is going break out, it is going to have to result from increasing his touchdown count. The problem there is that the Lions possess the top wide receiver red zone threat in the league in Calvin Johnson. Also not helping matters is the presence of backup tight end Tony Scheffler who pilfered six touchdowns last season. In 2012, look for Pettigrew to post similar production to what he put up in 2011, making him a lower tier fantasy starter.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Ameer Abdullah expected to be ready for camp     -- Mon Jun 6 11:49 am --

Shoulder injury
Bob Quinn said Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) will be ready for the start of training camp, Brandon Pettigrew (knee) will not. (Dave Birkett on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Abdullah had shoulder surgery back in January but GM Quinn believes the second-year back will ready for camp in July. The Lions had 354 rushing attempts last season, tied for the 31st in the league. Only Miami (344) had fewer attempts and that philosophy isn't expected to change anytime soon keeping Abdullah's ceiling at a RB2 level.
