TE Brandon Pettigrew - Detroit Lions
|6-6, 263||Born: 2-23-1985||College: Oklahoma State||Drafted: Round 1, pick 20|
Week 12: vs Philadelphia Eagles
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. The Lions won a game last week! In other dire portents of doom, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were seen getting their horses shod, and the moon turned blood red. Just kidding - the Lions really did win a game, though. Matthew Stafford found both his primary receivers for over 50 yards receiving last week, making their fantasy owners less depressed. Calvin Johnson had nine targets for 5/88/0 receiving; Golden Tate handled 11 for 8/73/0; and Theo Riddick saw six for 5/72/0. The only TD scored by the Lions' offense was run in by Stafford, making his fantasy owners slightly less depressed (22/35 for 282 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, with 6/31/1 rushing). The Eagles' fans left Lincoln Financial Field feeling depressed last week, after their 'defense' allowed well over 500 combined yards to the Buccaneers, including a whopping 19/29 for 246 yards passing, one million (ok, only FIVE) TDs, and zero interceptions to rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. Philadelphia lost 45-17, but Mark Sanchez didn't fumble the ball! There is a silver lining in every cloud, Eagles' fans. Two depressing units face off in this depressing-yet-nationally televised matchup. That sounds about even to us.

2015 Week 5 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Brandon Pettigrew was utilized slightly less than Tim Wright, but was more effective with his yardage after the catch.

Both he and Wright have replaced Ebron with little to no drop-off.
