Pettigrew has been mildly disappointing this year with just 31 catches for 300 yards and one TD. This comes after he had 83 catches last season and was expected to take a leap this year.
Fantasy Impact: Pettigrew could get some new life this week now that the Lions will be without Nate Burleson (leg). On the other hand, the Lions still have some depth at WR with Titus Young and rookie Ryan Broyles.
Pettigrew might actually go off on Sunday. The Hawks have fantastic corners, so Stafford may be forced to keep it between the numbers more often than he wants. He's a low-end TE1.
