Ravens Beat: TE Dennis Pitta (hip) likely to start season on PUP

ESPN - [Full Article]

Ravens beat writer Jamison Hensley: "I'm ... under the assumption that tight end Dennis Pitta and safety Terrence Brooks will begin the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list."

Fantasy Impact: 

If Pitta starts the season on PUP, he won't be eligible to play in the first six games. It's not often that rookie tight ends are fantasy relevant. It's a tough position to learn and since it's a "onesie" position in most fantasy leagues, there isn't a ton of demand. Maxx Williams has a chance to be a factor at the position given the opportunity he has for playing time in Marc Trestman's pass-happy offense. Under Trestman, Martellus Bennett finished as the #10 and #5 TE in both PPR and standard formats in the last two seasons. If Williams has a great summer, he may be TE2-worthy in fantasy drafts.
