    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was waived/injured Wednesday, June 7.

    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.

    Updating an ongoing story, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has been diagnosed with a dislocated hip and is expected to undergo surgery at some point, according to a source.

    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.

    Updating a previous report, the Baltimore Ravens fear that TE Dennis Pitta (hip) fractured and dislocated his hip for the third time in the last four years. His career likely will be over if the diagnosis is confirmed.

    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.

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) reinjured his hip during OTAs on Friday, June 2, and is undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome. 'This is incredibly disappointing, obviously for Dennis, and for the Ravens,' Newsome said in a statement.

    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.

  • Posted: 3/22/2017 6:50am ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta took a $2.5 million pay cut over the next two seasons. He will make $2.5 million in base salary in 2017 along with a $500,000 roster bonus. He was previously scheduled to earn $5.5 million. This gives Baltimore an additional $2.5 million in cap space in 2017 and 2018.

    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.

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta has been asked to take a pay cut so the team can create salary cap space. Nothing between the two sides is imminent at this point.

    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.

  • Posted: 2/22/2017 7:30pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta is due to make $5.5 million in each of the last two years of his contract, but there is speculation the team may not want to pay him that much despite the fact he is coming off a career-high 86-catch season, according to sources.

    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.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 1:35pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta caught 11 passes for 91 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/25/2016 5:18pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta finished with eight catches for 75 yards on a team-high 11 in a 31-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Dec. 25.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 9:53pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta posted just four receptions for 18 yards in the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots Monday, Dec. 12. He was targeted five times.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 9:17pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta posted nine receptions for 90 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted 11 times.

    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.
