2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-02-2014 by Rob Warner

This 29-year-old is coming off an injury-plagued 2013 season (hip surgery) that limited him to just 20 catches for 169 yards over four games. Provided he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he's a player to target thanks to being a Flacco favorite in the red zone. Also, new OC Gary Kubiak's system loves tight ends and will maximize his talents. Just look at the numbers put up year-to-year by Owen Daniels in Houston (averaged 62 catches per season during his four years in Houston where he played at least 15 games). In 2012, Pitta had his best season: hauling in 61 receptions for 669 yards and seven touchdowns (finished as the seventh best fantasy TE in standard leagues). He should be a better target in PPR leagues, but remains a solid TE1 in standard formats as well (despite the presence of Daniels, who will make for a great second TE). Pitta will likely finish as the second-leading Ravens pass-catcher to Torrey Smith.

Editor's note: Pitta's ADP (TE8, 90.61) is right where it should be. This means you could draft three RBs, three WRs, a QB and then a TE like Pitta in Round 8. Nothing wrong at all with a roster like that after eight rounds. He could be a Top 5 TE and therefore outperform his draft stock; however, the Ravens must prove they can pass-protect again and operate more competently offensively.
