The Ravens are using Dennis PItta often on offense in 2012. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dennis Pitta caught five passes for 50 yards and one touchdown against the Patriots on Sunday night. He now has 18 receptions for 188 yards and two touchdown in 2012.

Fantasy Impact: Pitta is now a viable fantasy starter for your lineup. He continues to see a fair share of the looks from Joe Flacco each week, and now has successfully made it to the end zone in two of the three games he's played so far. In the new up-tempo offense the Ravens are trying to work with, Pitta is emerging as the other go-to target from Flacco, alongside Torrey Smith. Ed Dickson is no longer going to challenge Pitta with targets in the Baltimore offense. You can feel confident starting him.
