  • Noah Fant Disappoints In His Return

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant missed the team's Week 5 game against the Patriots due to an ankle injury, but he returned for the 43-16 loss in Week 7 against the Chiefs. Fant drew seven targets from quarterback Drew Lock in the snowy conditions in Denver, but he was only able to haul in three of them for 38 yards in the blowout. It was his first game action since Oct. 1, but it didn't help that rookie tight end Albert Okwuegbunam had the same amount of targets and caught all of them for 60 yards. Okwuegbunam's emergence and chemistry with Lock dating back to their days at Missouri could be a thorn in Fant's side moving forward. Against the division-rival Chargers next Sunday, Fant will be more of a TE2.

  • Noah Fant Officially Active In Week 7

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Fant missed the team's last game against the New England Patriots while dealing with a knee injury. Fant will help give the team's offense a much-needed boost in a game where they'll need to put up some points to keep pace with the Chiefs. Through four games this year, Fant has 19 catches for 219 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Noah Fant Logs Full Practice Ahead Of Potential Return Sunday

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle) was able to practice in full Thursday, a significant step in the right direction concerning his availability for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs. Fant has missed each of Denver's two prior contests, with his return to practice on a full-time basis marking the first time in three weeks that he has had no restrictions. With Drew Lock also recovered from injury and back under center, Fant has some legitimate TE1 appeal in season-long formats, in addition to drawing some DFS upside due to the rapport that the two established last season. Having hauled in five receptions in three of his four games this season, Fant presents a solid floor in any-sized format.

  • Noah Fant, K.J. Hamler Have Shot At Playing Sunday

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle) and wide receiver K.J. Hamler (hamstring) could both potentially return to play in Sundays contest versus Kansas City after missing last Sundays outing due to respective injuries, per head coach Vic Fangio. Fant is the more fantasy relevant of the two, having established a considerable rapport with Drew Lock last season. Fant has hauled in five receptions in three of his four appearances this year, combining for 219 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Hamlers first two contests saw him receive 12 targets, which bodes well for his fantasy upside should he ultimately suit up. Check back throughout the week for updates on both players, whose return would knock Jerry Jeudys appeal down a notch.

  • Noah Fant Deemed Out For Sunday's Game

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Sundays contest versus the Patriots. Despite having been a limited practice participant throughout the week, Denver will ultimately opt to hold Fant out, further limiting the teams offensive options with Melvin Gordon III (illness) also sidelined. Jake Butt and Nick Vannett figure to continue holding down tight end duties without Fant in the mix, but with Drew Lock (shoulder) nearing a return, season-long fantasy managers can hold onto Fant with the hope that he suits up next week against Kansas City. Having averaged nearly seven targets per game this season over his first four contests, Fant figures to be an integral part of the Broncos passing game without Courtland Sutton (knee) for the remainder of 2020.

  • Noah Fant Receives Questionable Tag

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle) was a limited practice participant all week and is listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Patriots. Head coach Vic Fangio said earlier in the week that Fant has a 50-50 shot to play on Sunday. Check back on Sunday morning, as Fant is shaping up to be a game-time decision. If the second-year tight end is active, he'll have TE1 upside despite a tough matchup. Fant currently leads the Broncos with 28 targets despite missing time in Week 4 after suffering his ankle injury. Quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder), who has taken a liking to Fant as his top target, could also return Sunday. Even though New England has been good at limiting opposing tight ends so far this year, Fant's high target floor would make him worth considering as your TE1 if he plays.
