  • Kyle Pitts Could Be Ready For Week 1

    Headshot for Kyle Pitts

    According to Falcons head coach Arthur Smith, tight end Kyle Pitts (knee) is expected to be ready for Week 1. However, Smith declined to provide further details. The 22-year-old began his career by catching 68 passes for 1,026 yards and a touchdown as a rookie. He also made the Pro Bowl. As a result, many had assumed Pitts would progress in 2022. Yet, he had only 28 receptions for 356 yards and two touchdowns before going down in Week 11 with a knee injury that resulted in surgery. That said, the 2021 first-round pick is an excellent bounce-back candidate, even more so if quarterback Desmond Ridder improves under center.

  • Kyle Pitts Not Participating In OTAs

    Headshot for Kyle Pitts

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts (knee) and running backs Cordarrelle Patterson and Caleb Huntley (Achilles) have not been participating in organized team activities this week. Pitts and Huntley are coming off major injuries in 2022. Pitts suffered an MCL tear last year, but he's expected to be ready for training camp this summer. The 22-year-old had 1,000 yards receiving in his rookie year in 2021 before catching 28 passes for 356 yards and two touchdowns in only 10 starts in 2022 because of his knee injury. At worst, Pitts should be considered a midrange TE1 in fantasy, and he has the potential to break out in 2023 if new starting quarterback Desmond Ridder takes the next step in his second NFL season. Huntley, meanwhile, is expected to open the year on Injured Reserve.
