Brandon Pettigrew misses 3rd straight practice, fantasy value very low for Week 15

Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions tight end Bradon Pettigrew (ankle) missed practice again on Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew did not practice again on Friday because of an ankle injury, making it less likely he will play in Week 15. Pettigrew was injured early in last weekend's loss to the Green Bay Packers and did not return to the game.

Tony Scheffler would be Detroit's primary target at tight end if Pettigrew doesn't play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: It's hard to imagine Pettigrew suiting up this weekend so fantasy owners should be ready to start someone else against Arizona.

Scheffler is a decent option in deeper leagues but there are probably better choices available for Week 15. Both players would, at best, be No. 2 fantasy tight ends this week.
