Lions | Tony Scheffler may have bigger role

Detroit Lions TEs Tony Scheffler, Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria may have bigger roles after WR Nate Burleson (arm) suffered a broken arm in a car accident. Scheffler had a season-high 21 snaps in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins after playing only four plays in the season opener and 17 snaps in Week 2. He has only been thrown to three times. Scheffler has lined up as a traditional tight end and in the slot so far this season.

Fantasy Tip: Scheffler could see more looks, but with Pettigrew also in the picture, the chances that it'll be enough to make him fantasy relevant are remote.
