|As expected, a 35-year old blocking specialist on his third NFL team, who only managed 39 catches TOTAL in his two previous seasons would go out in 2015 and rack up 74-825-6 line to finish as a top-10 tight end. Sarcasm aside, Watson parlayed his career year into two-year, $7 million deal with the Ravens. Stepping into the starting line-up ahead of youngsters Crocket Gillmore and Maxx Williams, Watson should see a fair share of looks in an offense that lacks definitive playmakers out wide, and a coach and QB who favor tight ends. With Gillmore and Williams still around, and Dennis Pitta fighting back from multiple hip injuries, it will be nearly impossible for Watson to repeat his 74 receptions, and top-10 finish. Look for Watson to be more of a TE2 this year, and someone I would easily bypass for a player with more potential upside.
| Dennis Pitta could be "significant contributor"|
TE has not played since September 2014

|Dennis Pitta was one of the more active and productive offensive players for the past couple of weeks (of offseason practices). Pitta is moving well and caught just about everything thrown in his direction. He’s always going to be at risk of reinjuring his hip, but for now, Pitta feels good and looks like he can be a significant contributor. (Baltimore Sun)|
FFToday's Take: At first glance, the Ravens appear to have an overload at tight end. but Crockett Gillmore (shoulder), Maxx Williams (inexperience) and free-agent addition Ben Watson (will turn 36 the season) all bring their own flaws to the table. Pitta was once Joe Flacco's favorite target, and although faces long odds of getting back to 100 percent and carries significant injury risk, it's not unthinkable he could be useful in fantasy again if he can stay healthy.
