It does not look like Ravens tight end Crockett Gillmore or cornerback Maurice Canady will be missing the entire year. Both players hurt their knees late last week and coach John Harbaugh provided an update on their condition Sunday.
“They have cartilage tears that are not season-ending usually,” Harbaugh said, via the team’s website. “But they’re going in and getting opinions on Monday, so we’ll find out for sure.”
BAL TE Crockett Gillmore - Week 1, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 1 vs. Buffalo
Crockett Gillmore had 412 yards and four touchdowns receiving last year before injuries derailed his season. He’s the healthiest TE on the roster this week for the Ravens, which makes him a little bit intriguing in fantasy leagues. Against Buffalo, he should find room to work. However, Gillmore is too risky at this early point in the season. He’s not a bad stash option if he can fend off his competitors and get back to the development he showed a season ago, but he’s too risky to count on right now, especially with how deep the mid-tier TE position is.
Update:With Dennis Pitta getting the start against the Bills, fantasy owners should leave the Baltimore TE position alone this week. Make sure Gillmore is out of your lineup.
