Hello fantasy footballers it’s me again “THE FANTASY TYPHOON” here to bring you more league dominating information. This fantasy football spotlight is dedicated to the breakout talents of Dennis Pitta. Dennis Pitta is a special kind of talent that is in the right place at the right time. Pitta was already a decent fantasy football player but once Anquan Boldin was traded his fantasy impact inflated to BREAKOUT status. Now don’t get me wrong and begin thinking that the absence of Boldin automatically qualifies Pitta as a top option by default. Absolutely not. What you look for in breakout players are the talents, strengths, and skills of a player that once they get an opportunity to shine they don’t look back. This is the difference between a breakout player and a temporary starter.
EXCELLENT HANDS and QUARTERBACK – These two options go hand in hand. Pitta has some excellent receiving hands for a TE but if he does not have a quarterback that has the trust and the ability to make certain throws then Pitta is just a regular, or average TE. Make no mistake folks Pitta can make catches that some seasoned veteran wide receivers still can’t make with consistency. Joe Flacco understands that in the NFL a QB has to possess the skills to be able to throw a receiver open or place the ball in certain spots that only the receiver can make a play on the ball. This helps Pitta greatly because he is not known for his speed and separation skills. What he does excel in is ball positioning. If you notice the picture above the Cincinnati DB Leon Hall, is all over Pitta. This catch alone takes tons of focus, agility, strength, and down home my ball mentality. This is why the timing and trust Flacco has in Pitta paramount. You could easily argue that Flacco should not make this throw because it will either be knocked down or tipped. This is a major concern for me when I think about Boldin in San Francisco. Will Kaepernick possess this ability? If not then Boldin stock will plummet and Kaepernick will pull down the ball and run or find other options because he will view Boldin as covered when he makes his reads. If it continues then soon he wont even be looking for Boldin.
