Brandon Pettigrew injury update: Probable and a good fantasy play vs. Jaguars

Dennis Wierzbicki-US PRESSWIRE

Brandon Pettigrew is probable for Week 9 against the Jaguars. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (knee) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Pettigrew sat out practice Wednesday with the sore knee, but made nice progress through the week, being limited on Thursday and getting a full practice Friday. There's no danger of him missing the game.

Pettigrew has 38 catches for 374 yards and one touchdown on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Pettigrew has been dealing with the knee most of the season, but it hasn't kept him out of game action yet. He remains Matthew Stafford's second-favorite target behind Calvin Johnson, and could see more targets if Megatron (questionable) is forced to sit out.

Pettigrew is a borderline TE1 in fantasy this year and is a must-start against Jacksonville's banged up secondary.
