Ravens | Dennis Pitta to miss Week 1

It's a blow for the Ravens' offense, and it could be one for his season-long value, as well, considering the sometimes tricky nature of such injuries. He's probably still a top-10 PPR option at the position, but it's closer to the bottom end of that now. If you draft him, you'll have to back him up with a competent, starter-worthy fill-in from the get-go. Any extended absence would also put a dent in Joe Flacco's upside. Ed Dickson could emerge as a fantasy flex and bye substitution option, but only owners in deep leagues that should carry two tight ends should care.
