Detroit Lions - [Full Article]

Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew is hoping to have more of an impact down the field this season making bigger plays. He ranked 28th among all tight ends with at least 30 catches last year with a 9.4 average yards per catch. Only Randy McMichael of the Chargers had a lower average (9.0). His seven catches of 20-plus yards or more ranked 19th among tight ends.

“I have had my chances down the field and I haven't always made that big play and I think for me that's what's going to separate me and make me that big time player,” Pettigrew said after practice Tuesday.

For what it’s worth, Pettigrew has been one of the favorite targets of Stafford early on in training camp. He’s even been a more noticeable presence down the field making receptions.

Associated Press - [Full Article]

Quarterback Philip Rivers led San Diego to scores on two of three drives, then head coach Norv Turner earned his club score another touchdown with two successful challenges on a single series in the Chargers’ 20-7 victory over Dallas.

Rivers went 8 of 11 for 92 yards, with a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Randy McMichael.

Dallas’ Tony Romo was 8 of 12 for 58 yards, with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten. Romo also threw an interception on an ill-advised pass.

Turner got an interception by Billy Volek overturned, and got a touchdown for Ryan Mathews on a play officials declared him out of bounds inside the 1.

Fantasy Impact:

Mathews outperformed Mike Tolbert in this one, but Tolbert is still the favorite for work around the goal line.

Fantasy Impact:

TE Antonio Gates Questionable for Monday Night
Saturday, November 20, 2010, 4:51pm

San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates has practiced once in five weeks but is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Denver Broncos. That is an upgrade from the doubtful he was listed at prior to the Chargers' last game, Nov. 7 as Houston, for which Gates was inactive.

Gates has run on the side this week and the decision to play him could well come down to how he feels Monday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact:

It would take some guts to put Gates in your lineup given you won't know until Monday night if he'll be playing or not, but it's much better to see him listed as questionable as opposed to doubtful. Randy McMichael will see more action if Gates can't go.

Sign On San Diego - [Full Article]

As expected, Antonio Gates is not practicing on the field while recovering from a mild form of plantar fasciitis.

 Buster Davis, who suffered a concussion in minicamp, worked at receiver and punt returner. He is slated to be the No. 2 returner.

 New tight end Randy McMichael practiced and wore No. 81, taking Kassim Osgood’s old number from rookie receiver Marcel Thompson, who now wears No. 47.
