Summary

Tight End Rank: #41All Players: #291
Scheffler isn't the starter for the Lions but gets plenty of work in their offense at tight end. He topped 500 yards last season for the first time since joining the Lions. He also had 42 receptions, giving him 40-plus receptions two of three seasons with the Lions. He should continue to play a similar role with the team this season, getting plenty of work as the No. 2 tight end in a pass-heavy offense. Scheffler has big-play ability at the tight end position. He is a great athlete with good speed and the ability to make plays after the catch. Scheffler is a tough cover over the middle as evident by his career 12.5 yards per reception average.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Scheffler is a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 tight end for fantasy teams. He'll have some big games but won't be quite as consistent as other fantasy tight ends because he isn't a starter on his team. We look for a season with around 40 receptions for 450 yards and a few scores.

Detroit Lions TEs Tony Scheffler, Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria may have bigger roles after WR Nate Burleson (arm) suffered a broken arm in a car accident. Scheffler had a season-high 21 snaps in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins after playing only four plays in the season opener and 17 snaps in Week 2. He has only been thrown to three times. Scheffler has lined up as a traditional tight end and in the slot so far this season.
Fantasy Impact: Scheffler might be the biggest benefactor from this injury. He could get a lot more targets with Burleson out.
