| I'll save you some time... look elsewhere for a fantasy tight end. The Ravens are in such dire shape at the position that they are currently relying on 36 year-old coming off a season ending Achilles injury. Baltimore has used up all it's good will when they were able to get production out of another veteran (Steve Smith) who was coming off an Achilles injury of his own. The chances lightning strikes twice is minimal, and although Watson had a resurgent season the last time he was healthy, I have to assume that before too long the Ravens add a veteran (Gary Barnidge) to compete at the position.
| Greg Olsen to have surgery, out 6-8 weeks|

|Panthers TE Greg Olsen will undergo surgery on his broken right foot and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, per @mortreport. Team will decide after surgery whether Olsen will go on IR with expectation to return later in season, per source. (Chris Mortensen on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Olsen was on the sideline during the second half on crutches. Ed Dickson is the next tight end on the roster but doesn't offer much upside. Olsen owners looking for replacements could target Vernon Davis (WAS), Zach Miller (CHI) and Ben Watson (BAL).

Ravens need depth at position

|With a need at TE, the Ravens signed former #Giants TE Larry Donnell and waived WR Tim Patrick. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Ravens have been hit hard at the tight end position this off-season losing Dennis Pitta (hip) and recently Crockett Gillmore (knee) to injury. Donnell offers positional depth behind Ben Watson, Max Williams and Nick Boyle. The starter of this group holds TE2 value but all have giant question marks and can be avoided until a frontrunner emerges.

Crockett Gillmore leaves practice Friday with knee injury

|The Ravens may have lost yet another tight end.
Baltimore tight end Crockett Gillmore went down attempting to catch a pass and immediately grabbed his knee and had to be taken to the training room. The Ravens haven’t updated his condition since the end of practice, but reporters on the scene indicated that it didn’t look good. (Pro Football Talk)|
FFToday's Take: The Ravens have already lost Dennis Pitta (hip) for the season and Darren Waller will be serving a year-long suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Ben Watson (Achilles) and Maxx Williams (knee) currently sit atop the depth chart but expect the Ravens to bring another body at the position before camp is over.
