Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Pitta is going to have TE1 appeal every game he plays this year. He is healthy and the Ravens plan to move him all over their offensive formation.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
A now fully healthy Pitta is a top 10 play each week as Joe Flacco's favorite target.
Norv Turnerís offense loves throwing to tight ends ... and Rudolph is their main tight end. He'll have a breakout week one in St. Louis.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Kubiak loves to feed his tight ends so Pitta could be in for a solid 2014 debut.
Rams have the LBs to mess with Rudy but he also can be a red-zone nightmare. A bit of a toss up to start week 1.
