Scouting report

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.

BAL TE Crockett Gillmore - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Crockett Gillmore had some quality games last season, fending off rookie second-round pick Maxx Williams for the starting job. He had a pair of touchdowns in an early meeting with the Raiders, and finished the year with year with 33 catches, 412 yards, and four touchdowns. At age 24, entering his third season, he should be a breakout candidate at his position if he can earn the outright starting job again.

Fantasy Downside
Unfortunately, Williams is still lurking, and the Ravens signed veteran Ben Watson in the off-season, who will presumably gain the starting role over Gillmore. Also, Gillmore missed six games in 2015 with injuries, and he has a nagging hamstring situation.

2016 Bottom Line
Gillmore has some upside, but a nagging hamstring and the presence of Watson on the depth chart makes him too risky to be considered in most fantasy leagues. His status on the roster should be monitored and he’ll be a nice pickup if something happens to Watson and Williams, but until the depth chart is less murky, it’s hard to recommend drafting Gillmore in any league format.

Update: Ben Watson tore his Achilles tendon in the pre-season, which makes Gillmore an interesting option. He'll still be vying with Maxx Williams for snaps, but he's outplayed him in the past and if he's healthy, Gillmore could be a legitimate streaming option or an upside option in large leagues at the tight end position.

BAL TE Crockett Gillmore - Week 14, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Seattle

Crockett Gillmore was banged up against the Dolphins last week and wound up with only one catch for seven yards, missing much of the game. He’s supposed to be back healthy again this week, which is good for a Ravens team with Maxx Williams already injured and Nick Boyle suspended this week for the final four games of the season for a performance-enhancing substance.

Gillmore has some sneaky upside this week against a Seattle defense that has been dominant this year, but has actually yielded seven touchdown passes to the tight end position. Baltimore is too scary to trust in their passing game right now, but if you’re suffering at the tight end spot and Gillmore is available, he’s not a bad low cost sleeper option in deep leagues.

BAL TE Crockett Gillmore - Week 13, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Miami

Crockett Gillmore caught three of the four passes sent his way last week against the Browns, but only managed to gain 20 yards on the day. The Ravens are trying to figure out what their offense looks like without their top three offensive players, and with Matt Schaub at quarterback now, Gillmore should be approached with caution. We have him outside our top 15 rankings this week, even though the Dolphins have been a little below average against the tight end position this year, and owners should look elsewhere if possible.

BAL TE Crockett Gillmore - Week 12, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Cleveland

Crockett Gillmore had a nice game last week, catching five of the eight passes thrown his way for 101 yards. He may be the player who misses Joe Flacco the most moving forward, as the two were just starting to build a nice rapport. With Flacco out for the rest of the season, it’s hard to gauge who well Gillmore will finish the year.

This week, he’ll face an easy matchup, at least. The Browns have allowed 21 touchdown passes this year to opposing offenses, and new Ravens quarterback Matt Schaub has a reputation for making use of his tight ends. Fantasy owners should beware the uncertainty surrounding the Baltimore offense, but Gillmore has some upside if you’re looking for a cheap option who should get some targets.

BAL TE Crockett Gillmore - Week 11, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. St. Louis

Crockett Gillmore caught all four of the passes thrown his way last week against the Jaguars and wound up with 42 yards and a touchdown in a nice fantasy outing. The Ravens lost the game, but Gillmore continues to outplay the pair of rookie tight ends that the Ravens have competing with him for snaps.

This week, Gillmore will face a Rams defense that gave up big plays last week, including an 87-yard touchdown to tight end Zach Miller, one of two scores on the day for Miller. Gillmore has some risk because he shares time and the Ravens offense has struggles this season, but he has some upside in this matchup and should be considered a borderline starter inside our top-15 this week.

BAL TE Crockett Gillmore - Week 10, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Jacksonville

Crockett Gillmore has been the most consistent of the Ravens tight ends so far this season, and while he only had eight yards on two catches against the Chargers before the bye, he did catch a touchdown. Flacco looks for him often in the red zone, and he seems to be the main starter in Baltimore.

This week, Gillmore faces a vulnerable Jacksonville pass defense that has allowed 14 touchdowns to opposing passers this season. He has some risk because of the presence of rookies Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle, but with a nice matchup, Gillmore should be a decent bye week filler for fantasy owners looking for a sleeper. We have him just inside our top-15, making him a borderline starter in most leagues.
