Huddle Up: It's been a rough career of injuries for Pitta, and it's likely a career that is now over. Benjamin Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams will assume tight end duties with Pitta gone. Watson will start, but he's a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

Huddle Up: Pitta likely will miss at least the 2017 season and may have to retire because of the injury. Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams probably will compete for the starting tight end job during training camp and the winner could be a No. 2 tight end in some leagues.

Huddle Up: Pitta has had problems with his hips for years and probably will not be able to come back from this latest injury. Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams likely are the two top candidates to start at tight end for the Ravens and could both be No. 2 fantasy tight ends.

Huddle Up: It was reportedly a non-contact injury and Pitta could not put any weight on his leg when trying to get up. This is at least his third hip injury and the tone of Newsome's statement suggests they are not optimistic about it. No. 2 tight end Benjamin Watson is recovering from a torn Achilles', while Maxx Williams underwent offseason knee surgery. As a result, Gary Barnidge may be getting a call very soon.

Huddle Up: Pitta led all tight ends with 86 catches last year. Coming off of two serious hip injuries with his career in limbo, it was an outstanding feat. His 729 yards not withstanding, his 8.5 yards per catch and two touchdowns left a lot to be desired. He's a low-end TE1 in standard formats, but he'll receive a slight boost in PPR leagues entering his age-32 season.

Huddle Up: Pitta could be released if he refuses to take a pay cut, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He is coming off a solid 2016 season and has a good chance to start for a team next season. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point.

Huddle Up: Pitta led all tight ends in receptions in 2016, but he is set to enter his age-32 season and the Ravens could use more cap room, so a parting of ways is likely if the tight end balks at a pay cut. Pitta has long been Joe Flacco's most trusted option, so it's hard to imagine him coming anywhere close to matching last year's production with another team. If he is released, he's a good bet for TE2 production next season at best, even if he can stay healthy.

Huddle Up: Pitta came back from several major hip injuries over the last few years and had a very good 2016 season. He should have a bigger role in the passing game in 2017 and can be a solid No. 1 tight end for owners.

Huddle Up: Big games are rare for Pitta, who is generally just a safety valve for Joe Flacco. He has finished with 34 yards or less in six of his last eight games and should be viewed as a TE2 heading into Week 17.

Huddle Up: Pitta garnered plenty of attention by fantasy owners this past week, as he was plucked off the waiver wire after he found the end zone twice against Miami in Week 13. Unfortunately, the move did not pay off.

Huddle Up: Pitta has his way back from a career-threatening hip injury and is now flourishing. He has re-emerged as a fantasy option in most formats heading into Week 14 against the New England Patriots.
Posted: 10/23/2016 2:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Pitta has been fairly consistent over the last few weeks but still have not found the end zone this season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 10/16/2016 5:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Pitta suffered a debilitating hip injury a couple of seasons ago, and he has taken two full seasons to get back to 100 percent healthy. He finally looks healthy and is productive again. He is worth a look as a bye-week replacement and TE1 in PPR fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams.
Posted: 10/9/2016 3:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Pitta has caught at least six passes in three of the five games this season but has posted more than 42 yards in only two games. Pitta could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end or a possible flex option in most leagues.
Posted: 9/25/2016 2:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Pitta has taken control of the starting tight end job with the Ravens and has been targeted 20 times over the last two games. Pitta could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues or one of the better No. 2 tight end in standard leagues.
Posted: 9/20/2016 4:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Time will tell if Pitta is back for good or if his recent production is an anomaly. He figures to continue to be the No. 1 tight end in Baltimore with Benjamin Watson out for the year. If Pitta is available and you're in need of a tight end, pick him up.
