Dennis Pitta cleared for Week 12: Fantasy Implications

Rob Carr

Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta (concussion) has been cleared for Week 12. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

After passing his neurological tests this week, Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta (head) was officially cleared this week by the team, via Aaron Wilson. The Ravens' pass-catching tight end is expected to start this Sunday.

In Week 12, the Ravens will face off against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Analysis: At one point Pitta might have seemed like a good fantasy option, but he has since become pretty irrelevant. Earlier in the season, Pitta had the hot hand but his role in the offense limits his fantasy value.

Pitta rotates with Ed Dickson, who also has had his shining moments in this Ravens offense. Pitta should not be started in Week 12 versus the Chargers.
