Gillmore caught four passes for 28 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Sunday's 16-10 loss to Washington.
Gillmore's first touchdown of the season came from seven yards out to cap off the opening drive of the game. He appeared to play more snaps than usual, but there weren't many other highlights for him or the rest of the Baltimore offense. Dennis Pitta is clearly still the team's top receiving tight end, as he finished Sunday's game with seven catches for 59 yards on eight targets. The target division between the two isn't usually so even, but it's possible Gillmore could be more involved the next few weeks, as wide receivers Steve Smith (ankle) and Mike Wallace (undisclosed) both suffered injuries during Sunday's game. Gillmore still remains far from fantasy relevance, likely needing a Pitta injury to have a shot at establishing value.
Gillmore wasn't targeted in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.
Gillmore still has an important part-time role in the Baltimore offense, as he's a better blocker than Dennis Pitta, who has 20 targets over the past two weeks. So long as Pitta stays healthy -- an admittedly shaky proposition -- Gillmore is unlikely to become a major factor in the passing game. And even if Pitta were to suffer another major injury, Maxx Williams' presence might limit Gillmore's targets.
Gillmore caught one pass (on three targets) for 22 yards in Sunday's win over the Browns.
Gillmore saw 37 offensive snaps as the Ravens No. 2 tight end Sunday, but unfortunately was not very involved in the passing game. Meanwhile, No. 1 tight end Dennis Pitta brought in nine passes for 102 yards on 12 targets, proving for the second week in a row that he is the Ravens' best pass-catching option at tight end by a fairly substantial margin. As long as Pitta is present, Gillmore will be hard to trust as a fantasy producer.
Gillmore caught his lone target for a five-yard gain in Sunday's 13-7 win over the Bills.
Dennis Pitta got the start in his first regular-season action since September of 2014. Gillmore also had a significant role, but he was mostly used as a run-blocker, with Pitta and/or Maxx Williams taking the field for passing downs. Even with Ben Watson (Achilles) out for the season, Gillmore is unlikely to draw more than two or three targets per week.
Gillmore caught his lone target for a two-yard gain in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.
Though he hasn't made much noise this preseason, Gillmore now stands a chance to reclaim his starting job from last year, after Ben Watson suffered a torn Achilles on the first snap of Saturday's game. Previously expected to start, Watson will instead miss the entire 2016 season, leaving the tight end position in the hands of Gillmore, Maxx Williams (undisclosed) and Dennis Pitta (finger). Gillmore is the best blocker of that trio, as well as the only one that actually played in Saturday's game. However, Pitta is listed second on the preseason depth chart, with Gillmore third and Williams fourth. If all three are healthy, they'll likely split snaps and targets in a manner that precludes consistent fantasy contributions.
