Ravens | Two Ravens TEs on the mend

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 09:47:17 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) and TE Maxx Williams (undisclosed) are expected to return to practice shortly after the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The loss of Benjamin Watson (Achilles') for the season opened a gaping hole at tight end that only Crockett Gillmore is healthy enough to fill for now. Pitta has the most upside if he can return to something resembling his pre-injury form. All three are in the TE2 area in fantasy until someone separates themselves from the pack.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta has broken finger

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 09:20:43 -0700

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) is sidelined due to a broken finger, and there is concern that he could need a screw inserted if he returns before it heals.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta was already facing tall odds at returning from two major hip surgeries, and he's little more than a low-end TE2 in fantasy.

Ravens | Two Ravens TEs sit

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 06:30:53 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) and TE Crockett Gillmore (hamstring) are out of practice Monday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta is coming back from two major hip injuries, and he has tall odds against him. Both tight ends will compete with Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams. Whichever comes out on top will be a TE2 in fantasy.

Ravens | Competition helping Maxx Williams

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 17:46:59 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams has looked healthier and stronger during training camp this year, according to beat writer Mike Preston, and Preston believes the added competition from TE Dennis Pitta and TE Benjamin Watson is making Williams a better player.

Fantasy Tip: The added competition may help him improve as a player, but it is also going to eat into Williams' targets and prevent him from being a worthwhile fantasy option. Outside of dynasty leagues, he can be left undrafted.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta nursing finger injury

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 21:54:59 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) suffered a finger injury in a scuffle at training camp Monday, Aug. 1. He is expected to miss a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta is making his way back from a major hip injury, so this minor ailment is nothing. It remains to be seen how useful he'll be on the field and for fantasy owners. If he makes it all the way back to his pre-injury form he is a Top 15 option at his position.

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.
