Noah Fant will play this week against the Lions

Noah Fant will suit up against the Lions in Week 16. Fant is dealing with a shoulder injury and likely isn’t 100 percent, but he does get a good matchup. The Lions rank 16th in the league in fantasy points allowed to tight ends.

Jeff Heuerman could see more work if Fant isn’t at his best, so the rookie is a risky play. If you are looking for upside in a tough matchup, you might risk Fant in your championship roster, but there’s no need to take that risk on unless you are desperate.
