Ravens | Dennis Pitta takes pay cut

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:50:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta took a $2.5 million pay cut over the next two seasons. He will make $2.5 million in base salary in 2017 along with a $500,000 roster bonus. He was previously scheduled to earn $5.5 million. This gives Baltimore an additional $2.5 million in cap space in 2017 and 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta led all tight ends with 86 catches last year. Coming off of two serious hip injuries with his career in limbo, it was an outstanding feat. His 729 yards not withstanding, his 8.5 yards per catch and two touchdowns left a lot to be desired. He's a low-end TE1 in standard formats, but he'll receive a slight boost in PPR leagues entering his age-32 season.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta reworks deal

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 14:46:08 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta will remain with the team after he agreed to restructure his contract, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta had a solid 2016 season and finished with 729 yards and two touchdowns. He likely will be the starting tight end for the Ravens and should receive a solid amount of targets in the passing game. Pitta should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta asked to take pay cut

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 11:28:11 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta has been asked to take a pay cut so the team can create salary cap space. Nothing between the two sides is imminent at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta could be released if he refuses to take a pay cut, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He is coming off a solid 2016 season and has a good chance to start for a team next season. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta could become free agent

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 19:30:10 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta is due to make $5.5 million in each of the last two years of his contract, but there is speculation the team may not want to pay him that much despite the fact he is coming off a career-high 86-catch season, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta led all tight ends in receptions in 2016, but he is set to enter his age-32 season and the Ravens could use more cap room, so a parting of ways is likely if he balks at a pay cut. Pitta has long been Joe Flacco's most trusted option, so it's hard to imagine him coming anywhere close to matching last year's production with another team. If he is released, he's a good bet for TE2 production next season at best, even if he can stay healthy.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta may be asked to rework deal

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 15:16:46 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because of his high salary cap figure for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta missed most of the 2014 season and all of the 2015 season because of hip injuries but was able to finish this season with 86 catches for 729 yards and two touchdowns. There is a good chance that he will stay with the Ravens and can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end or a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy drafts.

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 13:35:24 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta caught 11 passes for 91 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta came back from several major hip injuries over the last few years and had a very good 2016 season. He should have a bigger role in the passing game in 2017 and can be a solid No. 1 tight end for owners.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta busy in Week 16

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 17:18:03 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta finished with eight catches for 75 yards on a team-high 11 in a 31-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Big games are rare for Pitta, who is generally just a safety valve for Joe Flacco. He has finished with 34 yards or less in six of his last eight games and should be viewed as a TE2 heading into Week 17.
