Pettigrew is a curious case this season, and we're going to have to watch how the pre-season shapes up to determine his real value. Back in 2010 and 2011, Pettigrew was a starting quality fantasy tight end, posting big reception numbers and solid receiving stats. But the last two years have seen a serious decline in his production, and his big play ability seems to have vanished. The Lions gave him a four year contract extension in March so they want him to be a part of their offense, but the selection of Eric Ebron and the emergence of Joseph Fauria last season seem to put a serious cap on what you should expect from Pettigrew this season.

Lions | TEs working on blocking (Wed Jul 30, 12:43 AM) - Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew and the other tight ends have split time between working on the offensive line and working with the pass-catching receivers and running backs catching passes. Pettigrew worked with the line while TEs Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria worked on catching passes Tuesday, July 29. 'We rotate and go down there during periods,' Pettigrew said. 'We have five guys here, why not split up and have some guys down there and some guys down here.' Pettigrew said this helps his blocking fundamentals, and aids Ebron and Fauria as well.
