Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (knee) was limited in his Thursday practice, but the team is likely just keeping him as healthy as possible in preparation for their game against the Eagles in Week 6. Pettigrew has played in all four games this season and has over 60 yards in three of those but only with a high of 77. The former first round pick averaged 46.8 yards per game between 2010-2011 and he hasn't missed a game since his rookie season.
Fantasy Take: He's not a "wow" tight end but there are very few of those in the NFL. He's a solid and consistent option but rarely goes off for huge performances. Pettigrew is usually good for 5-12 points and usually not much more than that, so it's what you should expect again against the Eagles on Sunday.
