Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 7 vs NO (6 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)

With Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria out of the lineup against the Saints, Pettigrew had an unobstructed path to tight end targets against the Saints. Pettigrew underwhelmed with his typical short routes and lack of athleticism before or after the catch. On one occasion Pettigrew had running room for yards-after-the-catch, but did little to take advantage. Even with little competition, Pettigrew remains a non-factor in the Detroit passing game.

Our View: New Lion Kellen Davis could get significant snaps at tight end for Detroit with all of the injuries at the position, but he has no fantasy value.
