Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew said Friday, Nov. 15, that he has had to make fewer catches in heavy traffic this season with a defender right on him. It is the effect of RB Reggie Bush on offense and the ability to spread the ball to multiple receivers, leaving defenses guessing on a lot of plays. "(QB Matthew Stafford) has a great amount of confidence in him, especially in situations where we want to move the chains or we know that people are going to be playing for an outside route," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said.

Detroit Lions WR Kris Durham had a career-high eight receptions for 83 yards in the Week 6 game against the Cleveland Browns. "I'm definitely getting a rhythm," Durham said Sunday, Oct. 13. "I've been working a lot more with (QB Matthew Stafford) the last couple of weeks, so I am starting to get more of a rhythm with him." Stafford said Durham was targeted 13 times because the receiver was "winning his matchups."
Fantasy Tip: Durham is worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams going forward.

The Detroit Lions used four different tight ends with the first-team offense in practice Tuesday, Aug. 20. TEs Brandon Pettigrew, Tony Scheffler, Michael Williams and Joseph Fauria each worked with QB Matthew Stafford.

Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas has been routinely working with the third unit during training camp, and in one-on-one drills Friday, Aug. 2, he was completely shut down by CB Domonique Johnson. On one play, Thomas was so overmatched that QB Matthew Stafford didn't even throw the ball.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas might be in jeopardy of getting a visit from the turk sooner rather than later. The emergence of a guy like Patrick Edwards has not helped, as he is looking more and more like a roster lock, along with obvious locks Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles.

With Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson and QB Matthew Stafford getting contract extensions, speculation has turned to whether DT Ndamukong Suh will be next. Suh says he is not even thinking about a new deal. "No, not really," Suh said at training camp Saturday, July 27. "I've got two great years in front of me and I'm looking forward to it, especially this year, 2013, to be successful and to move on from there." Detroit drafted him No. 2 overall in 2010 and signed him to a five-year contract worth as much as $68 million.
