Dennis Pitta worries fantasy owners after being shut out against Browns

Dennis Pitta did not record a single catch against Cleveland. We break down the fantasy implications.

After playing the lead role in the Ravens' receiving game in the first three weeks of 2012, Dennis Pitta failed to make much of an impact in Week 4 against the Browns. He did not haul in a single reception and was only targeted twice on the night by Joe Flacco.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't the type of performance Pitta's owners have become accustomed to. He saw 30 targets in the Ravens' three previous games, leading his team in receiving and looking like a must-start for every lineup. Anquan Boldin, Ray Rice and Torrey Smith took precedence against Cleveland in the passing game, and that seemed to be working for the offense. Hopefully Pitta will get back on track next week when he takes on a weak Chiefs secondary.
