Although listed as a backup, Pitta essentially split the tight end role with Ed Dickson in 2011. In his first extensive playing time, Pitta hauled in 40 passes for 405 yards and a score and came on strong in a three game run that began in Week 17 and included two playoff games, catching 13 of 19 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns. By seasonís end, Pitta was the more reliable of the teamís two tight ends, as evidenced by his 71.4% completion percentage for the season compared to 60.7% for Dickson. Since the Ravens appear to prefer Dickson in the starting lineup and the role will likely remain a timeshare, Pitta isnít worth owning in 2012.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. didn't practice Thursday, which puts his availability in doubt for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.
Smith hasn't been on the field since injuring his ankle on Oct. 9. He would likely need more than one day of practice to get ready to play a game again.(ESPN)
