DEN TE Noah Fant - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs Raiders

Noah Fant is on the verge of an explosion game, and it might very well be this game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Last week with Albert Okwuegbunam sidelined with a hamstring issue, Fant ran a route on 91% of the Denver Broncos pass plays. If Albert O is out again this week, Fant could have a huge game. Especially since the Raiders rank as a bottom three team (28th) in terms of adjusted fantasy points allowed to tight ends.

DEN TE Noah Fant - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Steelers

The lone bright spot on the Denver Broncos pass offense is Noah Fant. Averaging about seven targets a game and a 12.3% target per snap, he's fully taking on his role as the number one tight end and making good use of it. Last week he earned 10 targets to lead the team, and this week he'll be needed again if the Broncos are to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.

DEN TE Noah Fant - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs Ravens

Noah Fant is looking to bounce back from a performance that we didn't see from Fant the first two weeks. After turning in back-to-back performances of seeing at least five targets, Fant only earned three targets and gained 15 yards, both underwhelming to what we expect from Fant. This week, things won't be getting any easier, as the Ravens currently have a top ten defense when it comes to points allowed to the tight end position. The Ravens are currently only giving up 7.6 half PPR points to tight ends.

DEN TE Noah Fant - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Jets

Noah Fant is blooming into a star in front of our eyes and to add icing to the cake, he takes on a New York Jets team that was ranked 32nd in points allowed to tight ends according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) in 2020. He currently has the fourth most targets of all tight ends in the NFL and for the second straight week, he has finished second on the team in total targets. Fire him up this week.

DEN TE Noah Fant - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Jaguars

Noah Fant came out Week 1 and only solidified his strong camp by posting a 26% target share (elite number), he was second on the team in receiving yards, and second in AirYards. Now that Jerry Jeudy is out, look for Teddy Bridgewater to lean even more on Fant this week. This week he gets to face a Jacksonville Jaguars team that is currently ranked #30 in our adjusted fantasy points tool. (aFPA)

DEN TE Noah Fant - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Giants

Noah Fant, after having an injury scare earlier this week, should be good to go after logging in multiple practices this week. He's back just in time to take advantage of a New York Giants defense that had problems covering the tight end position in 2020. According to Football Outsiders, the Giants were the eighth-worst team in the NFL at covering tight ends. If Noah Fant can get behind the defense and take advantage of his yards after the catch skills, we could be looking at a good fantasy day.

DEN TE Noah Fant - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Noah Fant is entering his illustrious third year in the NFL, and many times, this is the year that a tight end breaks out or the year that we basically write him off as a fantasy prospect. Fant is a very divisive player, you see his talent and you think he’s the next great thing, his measurables are off the charts and if you compare him side by side with any NFL tight end, he measures up very well athletically. As a rookie, he gained the second-most yards after the catch amongst all tight ends, only Kittle had more, and in his second year, he gained the third-most yards after the catch. Going into 2021, fantasy drafters are excited about the prospects of Fant as many Underdog drafters are taking him as the TE9, and in today’s fantasy game, you don’t really have to do much to reward your drafters, usually, a line of 1-9-1 is good for a top 12 week. Fant broke out last year and took full advantage of Courtland Sutton being out for most of the year. He gained 93 targets, good for second on the team, and showed us that he provides us some floor by posting at least eight points in 10 games with Drew Lock at the helm. Remember in 2020, the difference between tight ends 8-16 was only a difference of nine total fantasy points or a touchdown.

Fantasy Downside
Noah Fant's splits last year with Courtland Sutton in the lineup left us with more to be desired. In 2019, the last time they played together, albeit it, Fant was a rookie, but it’s all we have to work with. He saw 108 targets without vs 68 targets with Sutton. He also saw 1.5 fantasy points per game less with Sutton in the lineup, Fant also only had 41 receptions with Sutton versus 71 without Sutton. All of this is to say, that if Sutton comes back and is his normal self, that Fant is most likely to lose most of his shine. Looking at it glass half full, maybe Sutton's returns opens up more of the field for Fant to use his game-breaking speed. Fant scored 126 half PPR points without Sutton in the lineup which would have been good for TE7 0.5 PPR scoring. He’s currently going off the board as TE9 in Underdog drafts and is currently ranked as the TE10 in 4for4 rankings.

2021 Bottom Line
Noah Fant is an exciting young talent who could take the step to the elite of the tight end group, but he’ll have to see more targets or more touchdowns. Since he entered the league he’s seen 159 targets but he’s only scored six times. His 3.8% touchdown rate is the third-lowest amongst all tight ends with at least 150 targets. We still don’t know who the quarterback of the Denver Broncos will be, but that’s why his price is so depressed, take advantage of the next young tight end who looks to break out in his third year in the NFL. With such little risk as an investment, and we’ve seen what his game-breaking speed can offer, the value he offers if he does put it all together Is tantalizing for fantasy drafters in 2021.
