Brandon Pettigrew returns to practice for Lions, remains solid Week 6 fantasy play

Raj Mehta-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew returned to practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Pettigrew returned to practice on Wednesday for the Detroit Lions after getting a rest day on Tuesday. Pettigrew has 23 catches for 223 yards so far this season and has caught at least five passes in three of Detroit's four games. The Lions are coming off of a bye and will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: There was never any real concern here. Pettigrew's season is off to a solid start, especially in PPR formats. He is the second leading receiver on a team that still has to throw the ball to make things happen. Pettigrew is a fringe No. 1 tight end this week against the Eagles and should be valued more in PPR leagues.
