Newsome: Ravens' offense will be 'very tight end friendly'

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Ravens TE Maxx Williams is expected to work in tandem with returning tight end Crockett Gillmore, who’s primarily known for his blocking. Meanwhile, Dennis Pitta’s future remains in serious doubt.

“We felt like the tight end was someone we really wanted,” general manager Ozzie Newsome said. “This offense we’ll be running is very tight end friendly.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The Ravens lost Owen Daniels to free agency and Dennis Pitta is very iffy for the season as he recovers from a bad hip injury, so Williams is a need pick. If his offseason goes well, he could start immediately in new OC Marc Trestman’s pass-happy offense. This means he could be fantasy relevant as a rookie, a rarity for a rookie tight end.
