RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Pitta has played just seven games over the last two seasons, due to a pair of dislocations in his right hip. The injuries are considered career-threatening, and Baltimore's decision to select Maxx Williams in the second round doesn't bode well for Pitta's future. Even if he does return, Pitta will be at increased risk for suffering a third hip injury, and he now faces serious competition at his position. On the other hand, he was arguably Joe Flacco's favorite target before the injuries derailed his career.

2014

Pitta missed the first 12 games last season recovering from a fractured and dislocated hip. It took him no time to get re-acclimated when he returned, as he saw 33 targets in his four games. Pitta was used more as a wide receiver than a tight end, lining up in the slot a league-leading 74 percent of his snaps. He'll likely see a lot of time in the slot again this season under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, who loves to use tight ends in the passing game. Owen Daniels followed Kubiak from Houston to Baltimore, which makes it unlikely that Pitta will match his career-high 94 targets from 2012, but both tight ends are expected to play a lot together in two-TE sets. Pitta is a skilled route runner who has the speed to get by linebackers. And at 6-4, he can do some damage at the goal line. The Ravens also drafted Crockett Gillmore in the third round this year, but he is expected to be used as a blocking tight end.

2013

After sharing tight-end targets with Ed Dickson in 2011, Pitta exerted his superiority over his position-mate last season with 94 targets to Dickson's 33 and posted career highs across the board. And those numbers came in essentially 14 games – Pitta suffered a concusion after one snap in Week 11 and played only 11 snaps in a meaningless Week 17. Pitta's developed a nice on-field rapport with Joe Flacco, his off-field friend and road-trip roommate. Pitta was especially effective running the post in the red zone and finished with seven regular-season touchdowns, before adding three more in the playoffs. Pitta's biggest strength might be his route-running, which makes it difficult for bigger defenders to stay with him in coverage. This season, Baltimore will be without the services of Anquan Boldin and his 112 targets, meaning Pitta could play an even larger role in the passing attack, particularly in the red zone. Pitta had only 13 red-zone targets a year ago, but could see some of Bolden’s nine directed his way in 2013.

2012

Pitta worked his way into a bigger role in the offense as last season progressed, getting five of his six red-zone targets and all three of his touchdowns in the final nine games. He also added a touchdown in the playoffs. Other than Ed Dickson’s 14-target performance Week 10 in Seattle, Pitta received a similar number of targets and receiving yards in the second half of the season. An injury to one would greatly increase the value of the other, but for now it appears they’ll share targets, making neither a particularly attractive fantasy play.

2011

With Todd Heap gone, Pitta should see the field more often. Still, coaches regard Ed Dickson as a much higher upside tight end prospect. If Pitta sees regular playing time, it will likely be in a platoon.

2010

Pitta and Ed Dickson were both drafted as great pass-catching tight ends to compete with Todd Heap. Neither is expected to take over a starting spot just yet, though coaches are very high on their abilities. Pitta doesn't have the athleticism of Dickson, but is currently the better blocker which could allow him to see the field quicker.
