Ravens TE Dennis Pitta fully healthy after 2013 hip injury


Ravens TE Dennis Pitta fully healthy after 2013 hip injury

One year ago today, Dennis Pitta's season was considered over. He fractured and dislocated his right hip during a camp practice and required surgery. The Ravens' tight end returned from surgery in time to play in the season's final four games but admitted that he was still gaining strength, trust, and flexibility in his hip.
Today, Pitta is ready for the 2014 season.
"I feel good," Pitta said. "I'm out here not thinking about it. It's not giving me an issue at all. I feel 100 percent. I'm encouraged with where I'm at."
Pitta, who signed a five-year, $32.5 million contract in February, has been utilized out wide, in line and out of the backfield in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's system.

Fantasy Analysis:

Pitta caught 20 passes in those four games last season for 169 yards and a touchdown. In his last healthy season, 2012, Pitta caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns. I expect all of those numbers to go up with Kubiak and the Ravens implementing more of a West Coast offense. Moving him around the field will help, too. And yet, Pitta is still on the board as many 12-team drafts enter the eighth round. He's a personal favorite of mine at that price.
