Detroit Lions tight end Tony Scheffler is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions tight end Tony Scheffler is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. He is currently dealing with a calf injury. He missed Wednesday's practice and was limited in Thursday and Friday practice. Scheffler has been a relative non-factor thus far for the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Tony Scheffler isn't worth a roster spot at this point, especially with his injury status up in the air. Brandon Pettigrew is the No. 1 tight end in Detroit, so unless he gets injured, Scheffler will remain mostly irrelevant for fantasy purposes. Unless you are in a very deep league, Scheffler is not worth rostering and certainly not worth starting in fantasy football this week.
