Dennis Pitta was listed on the Baltimore Ravens' injury report with a knee injury report this week. He was a full participant in practice throughout the week, however, and is expected to suit up for the Ravens' regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Pitta's production has surged over the last three weeks. He has 16 receptions for 227 yards and three touchdowns over his last three games, all off 21 targets.
Fantasy Impact: If your fantasy league extends into Week 17, Pitta should be worth consideration as a starting TE1 in just about every format. Anquan Boldin is listed as questionable heading into the game, and if he is ruled out then Pitta would likely see even more targets in the middle of the field.
The Ravens have clinched a playoff berth and can't earn a first round bye at this point, so there is some worry that they could rest their starters. Otherwise, Pitta is a relatively safe play this week.
