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
Lions keep TE Pettigrew     -- Fri Mar 14 8:21 am --

Four-year, $16-million deal, $8 million guaranteed
Brandon Pettigrew agreed to a four-year, $16-million deal with the Lions on Thursday that includes $8 million guaranteed. He’s en route to Detroit this morning to take a physical and sign his contract. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: Pettigrew has been on a slippery slope downward the last two seasons and fell to 41 catches, 416 yards and 2 TDs in 2013. With all the receiving weapons in Detroit, Pettigrew will check in as a low-end TE2 for 2014.
