Ravens Fantasy Football Tidbits: Tight End

New, comment
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

This is the third in my series of fantasy football tidbits. I will go through the Ravens roster position by position, giving my opinion on who I believe will be a good addition to your fantasy team.

We started the series with Quarterback and Running Back. Next up: Tight End.

Tight End

Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams

It is anyone's guess who is the starter and who is the backup, but one thing I can tell you for sure is they will both be on the field alot. Offensive coordinator Marc Trestman was at the helm for career years for journeyman TE Martellus Bennett, so the expectations are high for tight ends in his offense. Gillmore is the primary blocking tight end, but he has pass catching abilities which the Ravens are sure to utilize. However, the Ravens did not draft Madd Maxx to rot on the bench, and he will be on the field and utilized in the passing game on a regular basis. I think he will receive a good share of the red zone targets too. The bottom line is, it is hard to know which one is going to be fantasy relevant. I would say both make good backup TE's, but neither of them likely becomes more than a borderline starter in 2015. Maxx is the more likely to be starter quality in 2015 in my opinion.

Dennis Pitta

Assuming he even decides to play football this season and is on the opening day roster, I still do not see him being worth a pick in any round. His health is a concern, and he has too much competition for targets amongst the other TE's and WR's in this offense. Steer clear.

Nick Boyle

Boyle will likely make the roster, and has some upside, but not even slightly fantasy relevant this year.
