Dennis Pitta going off against the Broncos for desperate fantasy owners

USA TODAY Sports

Anyone that started Dennis Pitta hit the jackpot on Sunday.

Raven tight end Dennis Pitta is having a monster day against the Broncos on Sunday with seven catches for 125 yards and two TDs. His TDs came on plays of 31 and 61 yards.

The tight end is leading the team in every receiving department and has been targeted a team-high 10 times, too. The Ravens have abandoned the run in an effort to get back into the game against the Broncos. Joe Flacco has taken in bumps and bruises so far today, but the Denver LBs haven't been at full strength and have left Pitta open on several plays.

The Broncos have given up the 2nd-most fantasy points to tight ends this year, but Pitta was started in just 11 percent on ESPN leagues. Fantasy owners will definitely consider Pitta next week when the Ravens take on a reeling Giants team. The Ravens will finish their season against the Bengals in Week 17.
