Dennis Pitta out with a concussion, ends fantasy day early in Week 11

Patrick Smith

Dennis Pitta made an early exit on Sunday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dennis Pitta suffered a concussion against the Steelers on Sunday night and will not return. He left with just one catch for five yards in the short amount of time on the field in Week 11.

Ed Dickson now takes over as the No. 1 tight end for the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Pitta had a big day last week against the Raiders after staying quiet for several weeks. Dickson hasn't been featured much in Baltimore's offense throughout the 2012 season, but he'll have a chance to make a claim for more targets now with Pitta out.

We'll know more on Pitta's status for Week 12 sometime this week. Dickson likely won't be worth a pickup unless Pitta misses a significant amount of time.
