|Lions | Brandon Pettigrew should play|
Fri, 12 Sep 2014 14:04:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew only caught one pass for nine yards in Week 1 and will look to get more involved. Pettigrew costs $4,000 at FantasyScore, but owners could spend a little more money on a better tight end.

|Lions | Brandon Pettigrew limited at practice|
Wed, 10 Sep 2014 14:03:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew had only one catch for nine yards in the team's Week 1 blowout win over the New York Giants. That's not a good sign, especially since rookie tight end Eric Ebron is expected to see more work as the season progresses. Ignore Pettigrew and his FantasyScore price of $4,000 in Week 2.

|Lions | Brandon Pettigrew improved his hands|

Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew is expected to be used more as a blocker this season and isn't a good fantasy target.

|Lions | TEs working on blocking|
Tue, 29 Jul 2014 21:43:37 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew and the other tight ends have split time between working on the offensive line and working with the pass-catching receivers and running backs catching passes. Pettigrew worked with the line while TEs Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria worked on catching passes Tuesday, July 29. "We rotate and go down there during periods," Pettigrew said. "We have five guys here, why not split up and have some guys down there and some guys down here." Pettigrew said this helps his blocking fundamentals, and aids Ebron and Fauria as well.

|Lions | Eric Ebron to battle for PT|
Fri, 13 Jun 2014 16:23:35 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron, the team's first-round pick, is expected to battle TE Brandon Pettigrew for playing time in offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's offense. Ebron could play a role similar to TE Jimmy Graham in the New Orleans Saints offense, and the Lions could use plenty of two tight end sets.
Fantasy Tip: Ebron has nice upside in what should continue to be a high-flying aerial offense. However, he must improve his blocking in order to improve all around, and he'll compete for looks with Pettigrew. Draft Ebron as your TE2 with upside.

|Lions | Eric Ebron selected 10th overall|
Thu, 08 May 2014 18:12:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: As if the Lions needed another offensive weapon.... He'll often line up as a wideout and, despite the presence of Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria, Ebron has starter potential in fantasy leagues. He may be overdrafted, though, especially if Detroit doesn't clear target space for him at the position before the season starts. Matthew Stafford remains a top-10 fake-football QB.

|Lions | Brandon Pettigrew re-signs|
Fri, 14 Mar 2014 05:21:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew had a down year last year with 41 catches for 416 yards and two touchdowns. The team used him to block, as they spread out their receivers and utilized their backs more. They could still feature him at times, and he makes for a serviceable TE2 next year.
