Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will likely begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Sat, 16 May 2015 07:40:17 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he is feeling good and is optimistic about playing in 2015. He has been participating in offseason workouts and is allowed to run and cut. Pitta has also been running routes and catching patches during practice.
Fantasy Tip: Pitta's status for 2015 is still uncertain at this time, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Pitta is a risky option in fantasy leagues next season and could be a better No. 2 tight end for owners than a starting tight end.
Mon, 04 May 2015 14:18:48 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) may have an unclear future in Baltimore if he is even able to play next season. TE Maxx Williams was selected in the second round and is primed to take over Pitta's role if necessary.
Fantasy Tip: Pitta has been dealing with serious hip issues for years now, so it's unclear just how effective he will be if he does take the field. If he can play, there could be somewhat of a committee approach with Pitta and Williams. Neither should be looked at as a TE1 this year.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is participating in the team's voluntary conditioning program that started Monday, April 20. Pitta's career remains in doubt after fracturing his right hip twice in the past two seasons and the Ravens don't expect to know his availability for the 2015 season until the summer.
Fantasy Tip: Pitta collected a career high seven receiving touchdowns in 2012 but has been limited to just seven games in the two seasons since. Set to turn 29 years old in June, a healthy Pitta can still be a valuable fantasy asset at one of the thinnest positions.
Wed, 01 Apr 2015 19:50:19 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is trying to work his way back from a second hip dislocation. "I'm praying that Dennis comes back and he's healthy enough and they come to a solution and he feels comfortable," team owner Steve Bisciotti said Wednesday, April 1.

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:44:07 -0800

Thu, 05 Feb 2015 07:41:32 -0800
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is a question mark entering the 2015 season, and head coach John Harbaugh was noncommittal about Pitta's status a couple of weeks ago. The team will likely address the situation in the offseason because TE Crockett Gillmore is the only other tight end under contract.
Fantasy Tip: Pitta is immensely talented, but he has had two major hip injuries. He's likely to be available for a late-TE2 flyer in traditional drafts.
Fri, 23 Jan 2015 13:19:03 -0800
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) met with some specialists last week, but the team is not expected to have an update on his status for a few weeks, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said he has talked with the team's trainer about the situation but does not want to discuss it at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Pitta's status for 2015 is still uncertain, so owners should monitor the situation to receive a better idea on his availability. Pitta could be considered a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 tight end in fantasy drafts if he is able to play next season.
Tue, 13 Jan 2015 11:32:18 -0800

It's unknown if Pitta will try to resume his career after this injury, but teammates are predicting that he'll return.
Fantasy Tip: You can drop Pitta in all leagues. Owen Daniels will see the majority of targets at the position in place of Pitta, and he's a solid option at FantasyScore this week against the Carolina Panthers. Daniels will cost you $7,000 (14.0% of cap).
Tue, 23 Sep 2014 15:19:35 -0700
The Baltimore Ravens placed TE Dennis Pitta (hip) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Sept. 23, officially ending the tight end's season.

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:15:34 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) underwent hip surgery Monday, Sept. 22, and will miss the rest of the 2014 season.

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 12:30:04 -0700

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 15:38:35 -0700
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) suffered a dislocated hip in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He will have tests Monday, Sept. 22, to check for a possible fracture.

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 12:29:24 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has gone to a local hospital in Cleveland to undergo X-rays and further examination on his injured hip. Pitta likely will undergo an MRI as well.
Fantasy Tip: Owen Daniels should take over as the starting tight end if Pitta is out for a significant amount of time. Owners should consider adding Daniels to their team if they need a tight end. Daniels could also be a good buy on FantasyScore next week if he gets the start.
Sun, 21 Sep 2014 11:05:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (ankle) was not able to do much during practice Monday, Aug. 11. Pitta said his injured ankle is feeling better and does not think he will be out for long.
Fantasy Tip: Pitta can take his time returning since it is just the preseason. It would be good for Pitta to get some preseason time in the new offense, but he is still expected to be a solid contributor in the passing game. Pitta should be considered as a low-end No. 1 tight end that has more value in point-per-reception leagues.
Mon, 11 Aug 2014 08:03:46 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 11.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta has been in constant motion in formations during the offseason practices. He's expected to line up in tight end alignments, split out wide and in the backfield.
Fantasy Tip: Pitta's already large target potential should be aided by any increase in snaps. He's a midrange TE1 with the potential for more in reception-rewarding games.
Sat, 07 Jun 2014 08:44:24 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels said he and TE Dennis Pitta will catch a lot of passes this upcoming season because of the scheme offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak has brought to the team.

Sat, 07 Jun 2014 08:43:58 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he is feeling healthy but indicated he has things to work out before being 100 percent. "I feel good. I feel really healthy. I feel 100 percent," Pitta said. "But there are still things that I work through. I would say I'm on my way to getting all the way back."
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.
Thu, 03 Apr 2014 15:02:56 -0700
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels signed an undisclosed one-year deal with the team Thursday, April 3. Daniels and TE Dennis Pitta are expected to be on the field often in two tight end sets. The Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers were also interested in Daniels.
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.
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."
Tue, 04 Mar 2014 12:08:49 -0800

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.

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