Brandon Pettigrew Injury Update: Fantasy value looking good for Tony Scheffler

Thearon W. Henderson

Brandon Pettigrew didn't practice and could miss Saturday's game and Tony Scheffler might be a hot property vs. the Falcons.

Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) did not practice all week and is listed as questionable to face the Falcons on Saturday.

Pettigrew let down a lot of fantasy owners this year with just 57 catches for 556 yards and three TDs.

Fantasy Impact: Pettigrew has almost been a liability for the Lions with several mental lapses this year. He is not expected to start and there's no way fantasy owners should be looking to him for Saturday.

On the other hand, Tony Scheffler looks poised for a big games against the Falcons. He saw 17 targets in his last two games and he should see some red-zone targets in a potential shootout. He's a low-end TE1 for owners looking for upside.
