2014 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Jul-04-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Since peaking in 2011, Pettigrew has been a bit of a disappointment in fantasy leagues. His numbers have come down (mostly in part due to his struggles catching the ball). Pettigrew is a huge target; however, he is not heavily utilized in the red zone. First round pick Eric Ebron is likely to get the bulk of the targets in the passing game, which leaves Pettigrew to stay in-line and block. Pettigrew will be involved in the passing game after signing a four-year, $16 million contract. That's too much money to give to a blocking tight end, so it will be interesting to see how the Lions fit all their tight ends onto the field.

Editor's note: Pettigrew was inconsistent with no competition at the position. Fauria stole his TD production last year and now Ebron will take away whatever he was collecting between the 20 yard lines. Look elsewhere if you're digging deep.

10.02 World Fantasy Rankings #4 - If he could only stop dropping the football! I like the upside of Brandon Pettigrew from the 10th round and I believe he will be Matthew Stafford's second option. I see him catching between 70-80 passes this year even with Burleson coming back and Broyles coming back from injury. All he has to do is HOLD ON TO THE FOOTBALL!

11.08 DraftSharks - I don't love Pettigrew, but he catches a lot of passes for a team that forgot you're allowed to hand it off. I picked him here simply because of the 2 flex spots.
