Brandon Pettigrew 2013 Season Outlook

16 posts in this topic

How do you think Brandon will do this season?

He's owned in about 50% of leagues. I'm wondering if people are only keeping him because other people are keeping him.

With all the other passing options in the Lion's offense, Pettigrew seems like he's the lowest option. Check downs can go to Bush, Bell, and even Fauria over Pettigrew.

He only has any semblance of value in a PPR.

A short 13 months ago he was being touted as a top 10 TE.

What a drastic fall off, especially considering his QB threw a record amount of passes, for a ton of yards, and Pettigrew is 100% healthy.

Yeah for sure. I wonder what Pettigrew's history is like with the Lions. He had one good year with Stafford in 2011 and I'm wondering under what circumstances that was, and also what the circumstance in 2010 was that let him post decent stats.

I picked up Dallas Clark for week 2. Didn't drop petit grew yet but if he fails against AZ who gave a lot to theTE last week then it's about time to let him loose.

I'd still say keep an eye on him, but do it from the waiver wire. May have ppr value at some point. Disastrous opener, but in a contract year he should be motivated to rebound.

He has terrible hands and always seem to make bone headed plays. I feel like there are better options out there. Also, the rbs have taken his targets from stafford as the check down option.

He's bad. Drops everything that comes his way. Watching him play as an owner is really frustrating. I see him losing a lot of his targets to Bush/Bell now as well. There's got to be better options unless you're in really deep leagues.

This guy sucks.

He is easily the most hated player by Lions fans.

In the event he actually catches the ball thrown his way, which is about 50% he has a 33% chance of fumbling thereafter.

He sucks.

Dropped him and will go TE-less in my 16 team league this week

At least TE-less means I won't lose points from that position.....

Pettigrew seemed to benefit the most from Nasty Nate's injury. Anyone think that he can return to being a nice TE2 (or even TE1) in PPR leagues? After Mega, Det doesn't have much talent at WR/ TE, and they do have a pass happy scheme. So there's a void here that Pettigrew can fill if he can get over his dropsies

Burlesons injury definitely opened the door and he saw a season high in targets and yards last week against the Bears. With Megatron out this week, I think he'll set another season high in both areas. As bad as I've talked about the guy i'm starting him in two leagues since this game should be a shoot-out.

Traded Graham in one league and starting him over Fleener in the other.

Sneaky good game coming from this oaf today.

Been trending up and Scheffler is out. Would not be surprised at all if he scores.

I'm buying. I know Matty is tired of the drops but in PPR leagues I think Pettigrew will avg 12-15 down the stretch
