Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) said Tuesday, May 10, that he plans to be ready for the start of training camp. He is making his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee suffered back in December.
Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew would help with pass blocking, giving Matthew Stafford more protection with Eric Ebron as the pass-catching tight end. Pettigrew's return might be more important to the fantasy appeal of Stafford and the running backs more so than his own fantasy appeal.

Detroit Lions WR Andre Caldwell's one year deal is worth $885,000 in cash with a salary cap number of $600,000. There are no guarantees, but bonuses are attached to the deal. Caldwell will likely have to outplay some players to make the roster.

Retired WR Calvin Johnson is not expected to return to the Detroit Lions and play in 2016, according to general manager Bob Quinn. Quinn said he has not thought about a possible return for Johnson because of the conservations the two had before Johnson made the decision.
Fantasy Tip: Golden Tate should be the team's top receiver in 2016 with Johnson retired. He recorded 813 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 and should be a middle-round option in fantasy drafts. Marvin Jones and Eric Ebron should also have solid roles in the passing game and could be middle- to late-round options in leagues.
