2013 Outlook:  

Last updated on Jul-28-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (7-27): Pitta suffered a dislocated hip during practice, ending the top-10 tight end's season. Obviously a huge blow for the Ravens, but an even bigger one for fantasy players considering the limited TE1 options.Ed Dickson, who caught 54 passes in 2011, moves into TE2 range.

Preview: With a strong start and finish overshadowing a suspect middle, the pass catching Pitta had what amounts to a breakout season -- hauling in 61 receptions for 669 yards and seven touchdowns. Both a smooth route runner and possessor of quality hands, the 27-year-old had eight games with at least five receptions. Considering Anquan Boldin is no more in Baltimore, Pitta will have the opportunity for more and more grabs as Joe Flacco's primary target over the middle. With the fantasy tight end position in a transition stage - that's code for lack of quality depth - Pitta is firmly entrenched in the middle of the TE1 pack, though a tier below the Jason Witten, Tony Gonzalez and Vernon Davis level.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
9.01 FFToolbox - Jeb Gorham - I waited on the TE position as the big names went earlier. Pitta has solidified his value as the stop gap for Flacco and seems to end up with the ball more often than not. I like his play-making ability and think he was a solid 9th rounder.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
6.02 BFD Fantasy - The #1 look for the Ravens on every pass play. In a PPR league he's going to finally break out and score TDs along with creating receptions.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
8.01 Bruno Boys - This draft presented an interesting new perspective on drafting a tight end. It?s extremely rare that I don?t end up with Graham, Witten or Gronk on my team but it happened that way here. Pitta is the next best option now that he is the most reliable option left in Baltimore. On a per route run basis Pitta was elite last season. His main fantasy impediment was Boldin who split time with him in the slot, where he was most productive. Now that Boldin is gone, Pitta will run far more routes and be in the slot more regularly. He?ll easily eclipse his numbers last season and is stupid good value in the 8th. I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up my team?s best pick of the draft.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
9.05 TheHuddle - Really like Pitta this year, think he finishes as a top-5 TE. As much as I like him I really wanted to go WR or RB but nothing really caught my eye. Liked Woodhead but thought he would be there with my next pick which is why I went with Pitta. Had I known Woodhead would have gone at 9.10 he'd have been my pick here.
