Draft note
by John Paulsen
Fant is ridiculously athletic for his position, and he posted the sixth most receiving yards by a rookie tight end since the 2000 season. He would be ranked higher if not for the Broncos’ offseason acquisitions of Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler, who are likely to pinch Fant’s targets, which weren’t that high to start with (4.1 per game in 2019). He was also a sub 60%-snap player in the final month of the season, which is a bit worrisome.

DEN TE Noah Fant - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
After getting off to a slow start during his rookie season, Noah Fant finished with 40 receptions for 562 yards and three TDs. In his first seven contests, he had only 15 grabs and failed to register more than 40 yards. However, over the final nine stanzas, Fant eclipsed 50 yards four times, twice of which came after Drew Lock took over at QB. Overall he averaged a healthy 14 yards per catch.

Fantasy Downside
As a rookie, Fant caught more than three passes just four times. Although he is the clear No. 1 tight end, the Broncos drafted Albert Okwuegbunam in the fourth round and have other capable TEs on the roster. Denver has a lot of young receiving options for Lock, including RBs Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay.

2018 Bottom Line
As he becomes more familiar with OC Pat Shurmur’s offense, look for Fant to slowly become a bigger part of the passing attack, especially with rookies Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler spreading the field with their speed. The former first-round pick is a TE2 option coming into the ’20 season but has good upside, especially in the red zone with his 6’4” and 250-pound frame.
