2014 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 Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush inactive     -- Sun Oct 26 8:45 am --

Lions without two key components
The Detroit Lions receiver, Calvin Johnson, has been scratched for Sunday's game in London against the Atlanta Falcons, after testing out the ankle early at Wembley Stadium. He ran the perimeter of the field and a couple routes before shutting it down. Detroit will be missing offensive firepower outside of Johnson as well. RB Reggie Bush (ankle), TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot), TE Eric Ebron (hamstring), TE Joseph Fauria (sprained ankle), RT LaAdrian Waddle (brain) and QB Kellen Moore are the other inactives. (MLive)

FF Today's Take: With Johnson and Bush inactive Golden Tate and Joique Bell should be the leaders on offense today. Theo Riddick will play a complementary role to Bell.
Injury Lions RB Bush, TE Pettigrew limited at practice     -- Wed Sep 10 4:41 pm --

Veteran tailback wearing ice pack on left knee
Running back Reggie Bush (knee), safety James Ihedigbo (neck) and tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) were all held out of portions of Wednesday's session. Bush and Pettigrew were both new additions to the practice report. Prior to practice, the veteran running back was seen sporting an ice pack on his left knee. (mlive.com)

FF Today's Take: Bush is nursing a sore left knee but his status for week two does not appear to be in jeopardy at this time. Continue to monitor his activity levels in practice this week. If Bush were to sit out this weekend, fellow RB Joique Bell would see his fantasy stock climb heading into the Lions' matchup against the Panthers.
