  • 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.

  • Jake Butt, Nick Vannett Must Step Up With Noah Fant Out

    With Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle) out for Monday night's game against the Patriots, Jake Butt and Nick Vannett could see more targets in the passing game. Because both Butt and Vannett could take turns alternating at the position, neither player is worth a look for fantasy managers in starting lineups. Butt has just two catches (four targets) for five yards in four games, while Vannett has a measly two receptions (six targets) for one yard in three games. It doesn't help matters that the Patriots Defense has allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position through four games in 2020. Butt or Vannett might luck into a red-zone/goal-line touchdown, but you obviously can't bank on that happening.

  • Noah Fant Ruled Out For Week 5

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for the Monday night contest against the Patriots in Week 5. Fant scored in each of the first two weeks but has seen his yardage total drop in each consecutive week. However, he's been targeted 27 times in four games, catching 19 of them for 219 yards and the two touchdowns, so he's been the team's most consistent pass-catcher with Courtland Sutton (knee) done for the season. Jake Butt will likely replace him as the No. 1 tight end on Monday night, but expect Denver to lean heavily on wideouts Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick and the running game. When healthy with quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) under center, Fant will have TE1 upside this year.

  • Noah Fant Could Miss Week 5

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle) could miss some time after being carted off the field on Thursday night. The injury was originally considered minor and he does have a chance to play in Week 5, though head coach Vic Fangio has cast some doubt on that possibility. The second-year pro's fantasy managers are hoping it's minor, as he's started off with 19 catches for 219 yards and two scores in a potential breakout campaign. If Fant is unable to suit up for Week 5, Jake Butt and Nick Vannett would likely fill in at tight end in some capacity. Jerry Jeudy would see a ton of targets in this instance.

  • Noah Fant Expected To Be Fine After Being Carted Off Thursday

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant (ankle), who was carted off the field on Thursday night against the Jets with an ankle injury, is "all good" and "will be fine," according to a source. Fant's injury is considered minor, which should give him a good chance to suit up in Week 5 against the Patriots with some extra rest between games. He landed awkwardly after coming down with a catch in the third quarter, but at least he was able to give his fantasy managers five catches on six targets for 35 yards. Fant will continue to be one of Denver's top passing-game targets for the rest of the year with Courtland Sutton (knee) out the rest of the way, but he'll have more TE1 appeal once quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) is back, which could come in Week 5 against New England.

  • Noah Fant A Low-Upside TE1 Against Jets

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant will see his fantasy ceiling lowered with quarterback Brett Rypien making the start on Thursday night against the Jets, but he should continue to see a healthy amount of targets in the passing game, making him at least a low-end TE1 option for fantasy managers. Fant was targeted 10 times last week in the loss to the Buccaneers, catching five passes for 46 yards. Until quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) returns, Fant won't be as intriguing as a starting tight end option in fantasy.

  • Noah Fant Doesn't Do Much With 10 Targets

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant was targeted a team-high 10 times in the Week 3 loss to the Buccaneers, but he was only able to reel in five catches for 46 yards. It was evident that backup quarterback Jeff Driskel is a clear step down from Drew Lock (shoulder) under center, which will negatively affect Fant's upside for as long as Lock remains sidelined. The good news is that Fant should continue to be targeted heavily in the passing game. He probably shouldn't be looked at as a strong TE1 option for however long Driskel is the starter, but Fant will have some TE2 sleeper appeal this Thursday night against a woeful Jets team.

  • Noah Fant Becoming Trustworthy Tight End Option

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant has caught nine of his 11 targets for 138 yards and two touchdowns through two games this season and has even more fantasy upside now that receiver Courtland Sutton (knee) is out for the rest of the year. Even with quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) out and backup Jeff Driskel in this Sunday against Tampa Bay, Fant should see a healthy array of targets, putting him at least on the TE1/2 borderline for fantasy managers. Saints tight end Jared Cook had five catches for 80 yards in the season-opener against rookie safety Antoine Winfield Jr., so Fant could easily match or exceed that kind of production.

  • Noah Fant Scores Second Touchdown Of Season

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant caught four of his five targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the 26-21 Week 2 loss to the Steelers. He now has nine catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns, just one short of his rookie-season total, through two games in 2020. Quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) will be out anywhere from two to six weeks, but the drop-off to Jeff Driskel may not affect Fant all that much. In fact, Driskel could lean heavily on Fant moving forward. As one of the top receivers in Denver's offense with Courtland Sutton (knee) out for the year, Fant has become a solid TE1.

  • Noah Fant Could Pace The Passing Game Yet Again

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant caught five of his six targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 loss to the Titans, leading the team in receiving yards with Courtland Sutton (shoulder) inactive. Sutton is questionable heading into Week 2 against the Steelers, so Fant could once again be the team's leading receiver this Sunday. He'll obviously be a better upside TE1 if Sutton sits out, but at the very least, Fant will have some low-end TE1 appeal as one of quarterback Drew Lock's favorite targets. Some people believe the second-year tight end is primed for a breakout season with Lock under center for a full year.

  • Noah Fant Leads Broncos In Receiving Against Titans

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant had a team-high five catches for a team-high 81 yards and a touchdown in the 16-14 Monday night loss to the Titans. Fant looked good in this one and is a favorite of quarterback Drew Lock, so he has clear TE1 upside in his second season in the league. Targets might be harder to come by when No. 1 wideout Courtland Sutton (shoulder) returns to the fold, but Fant has plenty of room for improvement on his 2019 season in this intriguing offense. Against a stout Steelers Defense that just held Evan Engram to only two catches, Fant will be more of a TE2 for fantasy owners in Week 2.

  • Noah Fant Being Moved Around In Offense

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant said "I'm moving around a lot and he's using me in different places," when asked about offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur's approach in training camp. It remains to be seen how much the Broncos use two-tight end sets, but Fant will be the club's primary pass-catching tight end regardless. The 22-year-old from Iowa had his ups and downs in his rookie season, but he showed intriguing upside when quarterback Drew Lock took over late in the season. Many pundits are prognosticating a breakout season for the 2019 first-rounder, and he'll have a solid matchup against Tennessee in Week 1 on Monday night. Treat Fant as a low-end TE1 for that showdown.
