Both TE Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson are back practicing for the Ravens. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun is reporting that Baltimore Ravens TEs Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson are back in practice "on a limited basis." Pitta missed most of training camp and preseason with a broken hand that required surgery, while Dickson has been out with a shoulder sprain and recently started catching passes again. Both are still on track to be ready for the regular season opener. Pitta had 40 catches for 403 yards and 3 TDs, Dickson finished with 54 catches, 528 yards and 5 TDs.

Analysis: The Ravens have been down to third-stringer Billy Bajema for the preseason, so they'll be happy to have their TE depth back. Neither Pitta nor Dickson are elite fantasy options, but they make for decent TE2 assets, particularly if the Ravens are serious about opening up their offensive attack and freeing up QB Joe Flacco.
