Fantasy Analysis | 1411064591
Dennis Pitta a solid Week 3 start
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Dennis Pitta got Kubiak-ed in Week 2 against the Steelers when his backup, Owen Daniels, scored two touchdowns. The irony is Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak used to steal touchdowns from Daniels all the time when he coached the Texans.

Don't panic about Pitta. He had 10 catches for 83 yards in Week 1 against the Bengals and he should remain a significant contributor most weeks, including here.

The Browns were just beat up by Jimmy Graham in Week 2 at home, which happens to most teams, and Graham had 10 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns as Cleveland tried to limit the Saints from throwing downfield.

If the Browns do that against the Ravens this week then count on Pitta having a big game.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Dennis Pitta hauls in career-high 10 passes
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta played a huge part in the team's passing game Sunday, in a 23-16 loss to the Bengals in Week 1.

Pitta was targeted 15 times and hauled in a team-high 10 of those passes thrown his way, as he served as Joe Flacco's favorite target. He racked up 83 yards in the game, 23 of them on one pass, his longest of the game.

Pitta missed all but four games a year ago, but showed he is healthy with his career-best performance Sunday. He will look to keep rolling when he takes on the Steelers in Week 2 Thursday.

Dennis Pitta looking to break out vs. Bengals
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

A hip injury limited Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta to just four games a year ago, but he showed a bit of what he could do in a late-season performance against the Bengals, the team he opens the season against in Week 1 this Sunday.

Pitta was featured heavily in last season's finale, as he hauled in eight of 11 passes thrown his way, though he managed just 63 yards on those receptions. Still, he showed that he can find success against a stingy Bengals defense that allowed an average of just 6.2 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends last season, the seventh-lowest total in the league.

Only one tight end had more receptions in a game against the Bengals last season, and a full offseason of strengthening should help Pitta's breakaway ability. Don't expect the Bengals to hold him in check as well as they did last season, and consider Pitta a solid option in most Fantasy formats on Draft Day.
