  • Kyle Pitts' Rehab "On Schedule"

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts' (knee) rehab/recovery from a season-ending right knee injury is "on schedule," according to tight ends coach Justin Peele. The 22-year-old Pitts needed surgery for a Grade 2 MCL sprain in late November after getting hurt in Week 11. The good news is he's on the right track and could be able to take part in all of the team's offseason workouts, barring a setback. In his second NFL season in 2022, Pitts caught 28 of his 59 targets for 356 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games played before his knee injury. He's been an extremely frustrating fantasy starter the last two years, but he's still young and had over 1,000 yards receiving in his rookie season. If the Falcons figure out some stability at the quarterback position, Pitts could easily break out in 2023 if he's healthy.

  • Kyle Pitts Out For The Year

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts (knee) has officially been ruled out for the rest of the year, according to head coach Arthur Smith. Pitts was previously out indefinitely with damage to his right MCL that required surgery. The 22-year-old former fourth overall pick in 2021 should be ready to go for the 2023 season after suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain in Week 11. He had been extremely frustrating for fantasy managers in his second NFL season before his knee injury, catching only 28 of his 59 targets for 356 yards and two touchdowns a year after going for over 1,000 receiving yards in his rookie campaign. Pitts' fantasy stock will be down entering drafts next year, but he could outperform expectations if quarterback Marcus Mariota isn't running the offense. Parker Hesse and MyCole Pruitt will share playing time at the position the rest of the way in Atlanta.

  • Kyle Pitts Out Indefinitely With Torn MCL

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts is out indefinitely after suffering a torn ACL in the team's win over the Chicago Bears. While Pitts hasn't met expectations this season in fantasy football, managers continued to hold out hope for the 2021 No. 4 overall pick in the NFL Draft. He is more than likely out for the remainder of the fantasy football season and can be dropped in leagues of all shapes and sizes. Parker Hesse and MyCole Pruitt will be the lead tight ends for Atlanta, but neither has fantasy upside. Ultimately, Pitts' absence from the offense will likely mean more targets for Drake London and Olamide Zaccheaus,.

  • Kyle Pitts Leads The Team In Targets

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts led the team in targets in the 27-24 Week 11 win over the Chicago Bears. The second-year tight end had five targets and a 25% target share in the game despite leaving early with a knee injury. Hopefully, Pitts' knee injury isn't severe, but head coach Arthur Smith didn't have an update immediately following the game. If the second-year tight end misses time, Parker Hesse and MyCole Pruitt are not suitable fantasy replacement options. However, fantasy players should feel confident starting Pitts next week if he is healthy. The Washington Commanders have surrendered 9.4 or more half-point PPR fantasy points to tight ends in two of their past three contests.

  • Kyle Pitts Questionable To Return

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts (knee) is officially questionable to return against the Chicago Bears in Week 11. He caught three passes for 43 yards before exiting the contest. As long as Pitts is sidelined, MyCole Pruitt should see more snaps on offense. The Falcons will take on the Washington Commanders next Sunday.

  • Kyle Pitts A Boom-Or-Bust TE1

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts has been arguably the most frustrating player in fantasy football this year. The second-year tight end is full of natural talent and has flashed elite potential this season. Yet, he is being held back by Marcus Mariota and the coaching staff. Pitts has seven or more targets in three straight games. Unfortunately, he's caught only 37.5% of them as Mariota repeatedly throws him off-target passes. The former Florida Gator has scored under four half-point PPR fantasy points in three of the past four contests. Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns have surrendered only 6.8 half-point PPR fantasy points per game to tight ends this year, the sixth-fewest in the NFL. However, the Browns have given up two receiving touchdowns to tight ends over the past three weeks. Pitts is a midrange TE1 this week with boom-or-bust potential.

  • Kyle Pitts Hurt By Poor Quarterback Play

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts had a team-high eight targets in the team's 25-15 Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. However, the rookie had only two receptions for 28 receiving yards in the Thursday night matchup. Several of his targets were drastically off as Marcus Mariota continued to struggle. There were at least 2-3 targets where the veteran quarterback overthrew the young tight end by several yards. Fantasy players are stuck between a rock and a hard place with the former Florida star. Pitts has as much natural talent as any tight end in the NFL. At the same time, he is wildly inconsistent because of poor quarterback play. Fantasy players should hope for a quarterback change before the team's Week 11 matchup against the Chicago Bears.

  • Kyle Pitts Hopefully Rebounds This Week

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts has been arguably the most frustrating fantasy player this season. He is the TE18 for the year, averaging 6.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. However, the second-year tight end has scored under four fantasy points in over half the games this season, including last week, where he scored only 3.7 fantasy points. Yet, Pitts has 16 targets over the past two weeks, including a season-high nine targets in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers. Meanwhile, the Panthers have surrendered 71.3 receiving yards and 12 fantasy points per game to tight ends over the past three weeks. Hopefully, Pitts can repeat his 16.5 fantasy points performance from Week 8 on Thursday.

  • Kyle Pitts Disappears Once Again

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts scored only 3.7 half-point PPR fantasy points in the 20-17 Week 9 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. The second-year tight end led the team with seven targets. Yet, he caught only two of them for 27 receiving yards. After scoring a season-high 16.5 fantasy points in Week 8, the former Florida star had his fifth game this year with under four fantasy points. Furthermore, Pitts has scored over 9.5 fantasy points in only a quarter of his games this season. The Falcons have a quick turnaround as they take on the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. Hopefully, the young tight end can have a repeat of his performance against the Panthers in Week 8.
