Ravens | Dennis Pitta restructures

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 08:49:01 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta restructured his contract Tuesday, April 12. Terms weren't disclosed, but he will have the chance to earn some of his $5 million base salary in incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta would make a great comeback story, but after two serious hip injuries, he's too big of a risk to draft. Keep an eye on him through camp.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta will try to play

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 07:48:00 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will attempt to play in 2016, according to a source. Pitta is expected to participate in the team's offseason workouts and the spring practices, with the hope being he will be ready for full contact this summer and into the fall when the season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Now 30, and having missed most of the last two years, Pitta probably isn't worth drafting. He's someone to watch, but the risks are too high with the amount of talent at the position.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta not giving up

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 10:04:22 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is not giving up on his playing career. "I definitely do want to be on the field playing football," Pitta said. "That's something that I really want to happen." He continues to work toward playing in 2016, but he's unsure if it will actually happen. Pitta will reportedly make $5 million in base salary this year and will count $7.2 million against the salary cap, so he might need to restructure his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta has played in only seven games the last two seasons, and the Ravens have drafted Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams in recent seasons, so nothing is guaranteed for Pitta even if he makes a healthy return. Pitta shouldn't be anywhere near your fantasy radar.

Ravens | Still no timetable for Dennis Pitta

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 17:14:28 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said there still is no timetable on whether he will be able to play football again. The Ravens may consider releasing Pitta at some point this pffseason since he has a $6.6 million salary cap figure for 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta has not played in two years because of hip fractures and his future in the NFL is still up in the air. Owners should monitor the situation during the offseason, but he likely will not be a big fantasy option again.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta not calling it quits

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 09:12:55 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he has no plans to retire at this time. "We'll see how (the hip) is after the season," Pitta said. "I really want to plan. This is what I want to do and should do."

Fantasy Tip: Pitta's season is over for now, so you can forget about stashing him in deeper formats. Crockett Gillmore ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will remain Baltimore's No. 1 pass-catching tight end for Joe Flacco, but he's a midrange backup tight end, at best.

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 08:02:23 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Pitta still wants to play and could attempt a comeback next season. However, his fantasy appeal is nil for now.
