Pat Freiermuth
22-Year-Old Tight EndTE
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Freiermuth was the second tight end selected in the 2021 NFL Draft after he spent three seasons at Penn State. He totaled 69 receptions for 875 yards and 15 touchdowns in his first two seasons with the Nittany Lions and hauled in 23 catches for 310 yards and a touchdown in four games last year before he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. Eric Ebron will still likely handle most of the tight end duties in 2021, but Freiermuth could compete for targets as a rookie after Vance McDonald retired during the offseason. Read Past Outlooks

Freiermuth brought in all four of his targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Raiders.
ANALYSIS
Freiermuth was targeted just once in his NFL debut against the Bills last week, but he was more involved in the passing game during Sunday's loss. Eric Ebron saw two targets in Week 2, but Freiermuth drew the start against the Raiders and has carved out a modest role early in his NFL career.
