Ravens | Owen Daniels not expected to be No. 1 TE

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 08:48:17 -0700

The Baltimore Ravens don't expect TE Owen Daniels to serve as their No. 1 tight end this season, as they already have TE Dennis Pitta on roster. Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak likes to use two tight ends frequently, and he might install that as the base offense.

Fantasy Tip: Daniels and Pitta will be on the field together often, so they'll eat into each other's production. Both are great red zone threats, as well. Pitta has been one of Joe Flacco's favorite targets in the past, so he'll probably favor him over Daniels, at least initially.

Ravens | Owen Daniels agrees

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 14:16:03 -0700

The Baltimore Ravens agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with free-agent TE Owen Daniels (Texans) Thursday, April 3.

Fantasy Tip: Daniels has plenty of familiarity with new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, who was the head coach for Daniels in Houston. The Ravens could use plenty of two tight end sets with Dennis Pitta, but this signing will probably put Daniels ahead of Pitta on the depth chart. Baltimore has some nice pieces in the receiving game now to give Joe Flacco plenty of options. Daniels has potential to be a steady midrange TE1.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta close to full strength

Sat, 08 Mar 2014 07:36:59 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta said he is close to getting back to full strength after a hip injury in 2013. Pitta will be able to participate in the team's full offseason program that starts next month. "The big thing for me right now is just continue to strengthen my hip and my leg and all that," Pitta said. "Typically, you don't regain that four months after surgery, and so that's something that I continue to work on, and I've been training and trying to get that to 100 percent, which I'm close."

Ravens | Re-sign Dennis Pitta

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 12:56:42 -0800

The Baltimore Ravens re-signed TE Dennis Pitta to a five-year contract extension worth $32 million Friday, Feb. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Pitta should still be one of Joe Flacco's favorite targets, assuming he can stay healthy. Having a full offseason without worrying about the contract will help as well. Pitta should be one of the top tight ends in football in 2014. He is more of a midrange TE1, but he is more valuable in PPR leagues.

Ravens | Dennis Pitta not close to new contract

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 16:19:05 -0800

The Baltimore Ravens are in talks with impending free-agent TE Dennis Pitta but are "far apart" on the numbers, according to sources.

Pitta could file a grievance if he receives the tag to be designated as a wide receiver franchise number of $11.5 million instead of the tight end tag of $6.709 million.

Ravens | Franchise tag situation complicated for Dennis Pitta

Sun, 16 Feb 2014 20:46:58 -0800

The Baltimore Ravens' evaluation of whether to use the franchise tag on free-agent TE Dennis Pitta is complicated by the uncertainty of exactly how much it would cost. It's uncertain if Pitta would fall under the franchise tag number for a tight end or a wide receiver, which is a difference of nearly $5 million. Pitta ran 79.7 percent of his routes last year out of the slot, and that was the highest rate among qualifying tight ends.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like there is a chance that Pitta will be able to play at some point this season, but it likely would not be until some point during the second half of the season. Pitta should not be taken in any drafts but could be a waiver wire pickup later in the season if he is able to play.
