Dennis Pitta – Incomplete

Dennis Pitta looked great in the three games he played this season. Unfortunately, his career is in jeopardy after another hip injury. What a shame.

Owen Daniels – A

Losing Owen Daniels last week proved a huge loss, as Joe Flacco had clearly come to trust Daniels as an acceptable Pitta-replacement. Daniels has been consistent catching the football and has shown a knack for finding the soft spots in zones. Daniels has been a first down machine, turning over half of his targets into first downs. Great numbers for a guy many said was on the downside of his career.

Crockett Gillmore – B

Crockett Gillmore has gotten more action than expected as injuries have plagued the Ravens’ top-two tight ends, and he has held up decently. Gillmore has just five catches this year, though four have gone for first downs, which is impressive. More importantly, Gillmore has been a plus blocker this season, which the Ravens have not had at the position since the days of Quinn Sypniewski
