Pitta Potential Career Ending Injury

Pyro's take: For the 4th time in 3 years Pitta has had a major hip injury. He will likely be out for the entirety of 2017 and this will probably end his career.

Fantasy Goo: Pitta was the Ravens reception leader in 2016, this most likely will result in most of those targets being reallocated to Woodhead and Dixon out of the backfield. Also, note that Benjamin Watson should be back and active for the Ravens in 2017.

Pitta Primed for Regression

Pyro's take: Dennis Pitta was highly involved again last week, but has just two scores on the season, so he is a better play in PPR leagues then in standard.

Fantasy Goo: Pitta should regress to the mean, he could add a TD or two along with his high PPR floor.

Are the gates closed?

@SDUTKrasovic Antonio Gates (hamstring) was a non-participant.

Pyro's take: @SDUTKrasovic Antonio Gates (hamstring) was a non-participant.

Fantasy Goo: Antonio Gates may FINALLY be reaching the end of his run as a viable tight end play. Last week Antonio was expected to benefit from Keenan Allen’s injury. Gates has done next to nothing in two weeks. There are a ton of tight ends you could go with. Pitta and Tamme could be had for cheap, actually for free from your waiver wire if they were not scooped up this week. Do not be left holding the bag. People get old and Gates is that guy now.

Fajita Pitta

The veteran tight end broke his finger in a practice scuffle with rookie linebacker Kamalei Correa, and trainers are nervous a screw will need to be added if he returns before the bone is healed.

Pyro's take: The veteran tight end broke his finger in a practice scuffle with rookie linebacker Kamalei Correa, and trainers are nervous a screw will need to be added if he returns before the bone is healed.

Fantasy Goo: One of the things we can usually count on from Joe Flacco is his desire to find a tight end. Dennis Pita is not a factor these days but there once was a time when he was a stud. Today we find Ben Watson with the starting gig. Right on his tail is a solid player named Crockett Gillmore. Many of us are already familiar with Gillmore. Crockett will need Ben Watson to slip up before he can become a late season waiver wire pickup. Until then, consider Ben Watson as your 2nd tight end if you have a deep roster or start 2 TE (odd). If you lose your mind on draft day and forget to take a tight end till the end of your draft you can be bailed out by Watson. More than likely in most leagues Ben Watson will not even be drafted and will be a bye week fill in.

Dennis Pitta Easing Into Old Form

Baltimore Ravens TE

Pyro's take: Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) told the media that he is "totally confident" in his hip, that was severely injured fin 2013 and 2014, which was the last year he appeared in NFL action. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh added that the tight end "looked good" and like the player of old. (Around the NFL)

Dennis Pitta is attempting to revive his injury stalled career in 2016 with the Baltimore Ravens. Pitta hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2014 and is returning from a fractured hip. The Ravens added tight end depth which could make it difficult for the veteran to make the final 53-man cut.

Pitta shows Kubiak he can block

Kubiak knows tight end Owen Daniels from his time as head coach in Houston but said he's been impressed with Dennis Pitta's ability as a blocker.

"That's part of their job, too," Kubiak said. "We know they can get open, we know they can catch balls. But if we're going to run the ball well, everybody has to give it up for the team, and I've been impressed with what Dennis has done."

Pyro's take: It can be tough when you have a new coach coming in. That is the situation for Dennis Pitta. What makes it worse is that Kubiak is not the only change, as his tight end from Houston, Owen Daniels, is also on board. Pitta is clearly more talented, but he still needs to impress his new coach.

Pitta is a football player, and he will do what it takes to be a dominant player this season. He has the chip on his shoulder coming off the injury, and Daniels should actually help him acclimate to Kubiak faster. Pitta has a chance to be a top five tight end this year.

Pitta reinventing himself

Dennis Pitta had a memorable postseason run on the way to hoisting the Super Bowl XLVII trophy – three touchdowns in four games, including one in the Superdome.

“That playoff run feels like a long time ago,” the Ravens tight end said this week.

Now Pitta says he’s “reinventing” himself, and the newer version could be on the verge of a breakout season.

Pitta’s best year was in 2012 when he caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns. There’s seemingly even more potential in Pitta’s sure hands and smooth routes.

“That’s what you always shoot for; you always want the breakout year,” Pitta said.

“I think there is a little more excitement for me than usual. When you don’t get to play a major role like you thought you would originally, it excites you to be back.”

The Ravens already expressed their faith in the fifth-year tight end, re-signing him to a reported five-year, $32 million deal.

Pyro's take: Pitta will have a great chance to put up some nice fantasy points this season. The Ravens offense will be very tight end friendly, and Pitta has good chemistry with Joe Flacco. Dennis is a top ten tight end heading into this season, and could end up top five when it is all said and done.

Pitta Tag

Dennis Pitta will be heading into this off-season as a free agent and Baltimore is not in the mood to let him go. The Ravens are faced with two choices, either sign him to a long term deal, or put him on the tag.

Pitta only played in four games last year, after the ball of his hip was blown out of the socket and pressed backward. This left the Ravens offense in a big hole, and they struggled without him.

Dennis has become a reliable outlet for Joe Flacco, and has become a part of the new era of tight ends. He finished the season with 20 receptions for 169 yards and a touchdown.

Pyro's take: Pitta is easily a top 10 tight end for fantasy football purposes, and is a young developing player. The old guards are falling fast, either due to injury or retirement, and Dennis is ready to step right in and deliver, and there is no way that Baltimore is going to want to let that get away from them.

I don't think that a long term contract is the right move, because of the hip injury, but the franchise tag will allow the Ravens to buy some time, and see how his hip responds. If he performs, then the team can feel free to sign him for the long term. Dennis Pitta has a lot to prove this year, and it shouldn't be long until he enters himself into that golden age of tight ends.

Pitta impressive in return

In the second half Sunday, Pitta and Flacco started to click and Pitta was clutch. Five of his six catches came after halftime. Three of them moved the chains. And one was his go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter. He also drew a big pass interference penalty on the game’s final drive. Pitta played about 35 snaps and after the game he said he felt fine.

Pyro's take: Pitta's return came in a blustery snowstorm, and he proved to be the clutch target Flacco had been missing. Flacco has struggled all season without having any reliable weapons in the passing game, after Pitta was injured in the preseason.

Pitta was impressive with six catches for 48 yards and a touchdown. This was all done on just 35 snaps, and mostly in the second half. You can see how Flacco is going to rely on Pitta on crucial third down and redzone plays. Pitta has a good chance to be the Ravens leading receiver the rest of the season.

If you lost Gronk...What are you waiting for??? Grab Pitta!!!

Pitta returns

"Ultimately, it's up to me and how I feel," said Pitta, who caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 regular-season games last year and 14 catches for 163 yards and three touchdowns in the postseason. "It's a rare injury in sports, so the doctors are relying on me to see how I feel and how my body responds and all that. We'll see. We'll see how it goes [Saturday], and we'll have to make some decisions in the next couple of days."

After seeing a hip specialist in New York earlier in the week, Pitta got the go-ahead to ramp up his practice activity. He said he felt good all week and that his hip passed all the necessary tests. One of the few hurdles remaining is for him to absorb a hit.

"You always want to see how you're going to respond after getting hit like that," Pitta said. "It's not something that you could simulate in rehab or even in practice. It will be nice to kind of take that first hit and just see how it feels."

Pyro's take: Pitta was activated today and will play tomorrow. It is unclear how many snaps he will play, but he will be a welcome sight for Joe Flacco.

#88 may be able to do some damage in a limited role, as he is facing the struggling Vikings defense. The Vikes are giving up nearly 10 points a game to tight ends.

If you grabbed Pitta and were thinking about starting him, realize he is a risky play this week. If he plays well in his limited role he will become an option next week.

Pitta Carted off the field today

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was carted off the field by trainers today during the third full-team practice of training camp.

During the first fully-padded practice of camp, Pitta was in a collision with strong safety James Ihedigbo. It was during a pass pattern to the back of the end zone.

Although there was no immediate status update on the nature of Pitta's injury, it was serious enough that he had to be helped off the field. As he was carted off the field, Pitta had a towel draped over his face.

Pyro's take: This is another potential major injury to top fantasy player early into training camps. Pitta figured to be one of the major targets for Joe Flacco, and now this could hamper the Ravens offense in a major way if Pitta's injury ends up being serious. Look for Ed Dickson to see an increased role if this is the case. We will update as we know more about the injury.

Pitta to be Joe Flacco's main target this season?

According to the Ravens' website, tight end Dennis Pitta has been Flacco's safety blanket and favorite target during offseason practices thus far.

Pyro's take: With Anquan Boldin now in San Francisco, this news should come as no surprise to anyone who watches football. Entering this offseason, Pitta was already high on the 2013 fantasy TE1 radar but is pretty much a lock for starter-status with all the salary-dumping moves Baltimore made after winning the Super Bowl. It doesn't hurt that Pitta and Flacco have an off-the-field 'bromance' that can only be rivaled by Tony Romo and Jason Witten.
