Dennis Pitta injury update: Likely to play, but fantasy value low

Rob Carr

Dennis Pitta will likely play in Sunday's game between the Ravens and the Chargers after passing baseline concussion testing this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dennis Pitta has been cleared to play for the Baltimore Ravens' Week 12 matchup against the San Diego Chargers, and is expected to suit up Sunday. The tight end suffered a concussion in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but was able to pass baseline neurological testing during the week.

Pitta has been quiet in recent weeks after a hot start to the season. He has just one touchdown in his last seven games playing in rotation with Ed Dickson, after catching two in his first three games of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Pitta should not be relied on as a regular starter in fantasy leagues, especially now that bye weeks are over. If you're dealing with injuries at the position he could be worth consideration, but he isn't much better than any other tight end you could plug in off waivers.
