Baltimore Ravens Tight End Dennis Pitta made his season debut Sunday returning from a hip injury to play against the Vikings Week 14, catching 6 passes for 48 yards and a touchdown.
Quarterback Joe Flacco targeted Pitta 11 times which tied for the team high showing fantasy owners in Pitta he still trusts.
Besides a few drops in the first half it looked like the Flacco/Pitta combo picked up right were they left off last year when they combined for almost 700 yards and 7 touchdowns on 61 receptions during the regular season.
The Former BYU Cougar is owned in just 21% of leagues and is well worth a waiver pickup even if you already have a solid tight end.
Pitta, when healthy, draws a ton of targets and most importantly red zone targets. In deeper leagues Pitta holds value even at the flex position.
If Pitta can avoid any setbacks and get a full week of practice under his belt he should be considered a top 10 tight end against the Lions in an ever so important Week 15 of fantasy football.
