2019 Fantasy Outlook
Fant's splashy film at Iowa caught everyone's attention, especially since the scouting community is desperately looking for the next George Kittle - another Hawkeye -to come about. Fant's good-but-not-dominant college stats can be directly tied to the depth of the Iowa roster; No. 8 overall pick T.J. Hockenson shared work with Fant in a run-first offense the last couple years. The prospect hounds were drooling when Fant destroyed the combine with a 4.5 40-yard dash and 39.5-inch vertical, but sometimes his play on the field wasn't as interesting - he struggled with dropped passes in college. Add it all up and the usual rules apply. We're plenty interested in Fant's future, but rookie tight ends are generally seen and not heard from, at least for fantasy purposes. The Broncos also have some other competition for TE snaps, bringing back Jeff Heuerman on a two-year, $8 million contract despite his uninspired performance last year. Toss in a shaky quarterback situation and it's a lot for a rookie tight end to overcome. Read Past Outlooks

Snags two passes

October 14, 2019
Fant caught two of three targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 16-0 win over the Titans.
ANALYSIS
Denver tried to incorporate Fant out of the gate in the second half, with Joe Flacco finding him over the middle for a gain of 11 on the second play of the half. The QB looked his way again downfield three plays later, a ball the rookie tight end never picked up and which bounced off his back and into the arms of a defender. Fant was not targeted again for the rest of the game and drew some ire on social media, but the pass was thrown behind him and Flacco complimented the rookie after the game for beating his man and getting open. Fant has similarly drawn praise from other teammates and coaches, but has yet to put things together. He doesn't have much time to improve with the Chiefs coming to town Thursday.
