Detroit Lions TE Tony Scheffler is likely to sit this Sunday against the Rams due to aftereffects from the concussion he suffered in last week’s loss to the Packers. Scheffler has been rock solid and a very good pass catcher this season for the Lions but he hasnt practiced all week and therefore wont be in the lineup. Fellow TE Brandon Pettigrew will get the full load of looks this Sunday.
Analysis: This is good and bad news depending on how you look at it. Its obviously bad if you are a Scheffler owner but this is great news if you are a Pettigrew owner. QB Shaun Hill loves to throw to the TE and so Pettigrew will get all of the looks that he was sharing with Scheffler. I picked up Pettigrew for this weekend’s game and if he is still sitting on your wire, this would be the perfect week to get him on your roster.
