Ravens | Dennis Pitta wants to start

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:07:53 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he wants to win the starting tight end job during training camp. He said he does not believe that he has lost a step even though he missed the last two years because of hip problems.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the preseason to see how Pitta is used in the offense. He was able to post solid numbers before he suffered his hip injuries but is now a risky option for fantasy owners. He is competing for playing time with Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams, so he may not be a great option in some fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta cleared to practice

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:11:14 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has been cleared to participate in the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta has battled two serious hip injuries in recent years and is unlikely to have much fantasy relevance in 2016, especially considering that the Ravens also have TEs Benjamin Watson, Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore on their roster. The 30-year-old veteran is not worth drafting in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta can still contribute

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 12:46:13 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has looked good, is moving well and is still capable of being a significant contributor, in the opinion of The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

Fantasy Tip: Drafting Pitta is a huge risk with the serious hip issues he's had. Plus, he has Benjamin Watson, Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore competing with him. Watson is the best bet among tight ends in Baltimore, but he's still easily in TE2 territory.

Ravens | Maxx Williams tries to stay relevant

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 21:56:27 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams had a promising finish to his rookie season, but he faces plenty of competition for targets with WR Dennis Pitta back from injury and veteran WR Benjamin Watson joining the fray. He cannot afford to fade into the background with all of the competition.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta encouraged by health

Fri, 27 May 2016 11:40:45 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is "totally confident" in his surgically repaired hip, and he said he feels better than ever before with no lingering health issues. Head coach John Harbaugh said Pitta looks like the Pitta of old during organized team activities. The signs are encouraging, but the team is in non-contact practices so far.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta was once Joe Flacco's favorite target and go-to in the red zone. But the tight end has played in only seven games in the last two years, and the Ravens' tight end depth chart is stacked with the likes of Benjamin Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams. Assuming Pitta makes it through training camp and the preseason unscathed, he still has an uphill battle to factor into the passing game for fantasy owners. He's a long shot as a low-end TE2.

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.
