Noah Fant secured his place as a historical footnote last week, catching the only completed pass of the Kendall Hinton era. He gained 13 yards on the play. The fantasy outlook is a little better for the Denver Broncos tight end this week against the Chiefs with Drew Lock returning to the quarterback role.
Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos TE Noah Fant
Fant caught four passes on five targets for 55 yards against Miami back in Week 11, and even though he hasn’t scored since Week 2, he’s always a decent bet for at least 40 yards. The last time the Broncos played the Chiefs, in Week 7, Fant was targeted seven times, and he caught three for 38 yards.
The Chiefs have given up some big performances to opposing tight ends over their last two games. Last week, Rob Grokowski had 106 receiving yards, and in the game before that, Darren Waller of the Raiders had 88 yards and a touchdown. Fant is a TE1 this week.
