Brandin Pettigrew quiet in his season debut

by Jake Perper | Mon, Oct 12th 7:46pm EDT

After sitting out the first four weeks of the season with a hamstring injury, seventh-year Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew caught three balls for 29 yards in his season debut on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

With the quarterback situation being a struggle on Sunday to say the least with four INT's combined between Matthew Stafford and Dan Orlovsky, it was hard for Pettigrew to get settled in. With that being said, he's the No. 1 TE with Tim Wright pacing him. Wright had three receptions for 12 yards against Arizona. Pettigrew has a plus matchup against a Bears' defense that is thin at ILB with Shea McCellin (leg) likely out.
