Fantasy Impact:

Pettigrew has been injury prone in his NFL career to this point, with his latest ACL tear being the third he's suffered during his tenure. Although Pettigrew is a plodder who mainly blocks, the fantasy angle with this injury is that Eric Ebron should get a big boost in production. He had a few solid games when Pettigrew was out earlier this season, and with matchups against the leaky Saints and 49ers on deck, could be a solid tight end to pick up and use in your fantasy playoff matchups.
