Fantasy Analysis
Week 11 Projections
Fant went crazy in Week 9, but he was only targeted 4 times. He has shown he has the playmaking ability, but you want to see Brandon Allen look his way more. He is streamable, though, but be aware that he has a low floor.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 38 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Selected 20th overall in the 2019 draft, Fant gives the Broncos a playmaker at tight end for the first time since Julius Thomas departed after the 2014 season. Fant left Iowa after three years with a single-season school record of 19 touchdown catches by a tight end. He also torched defenses for 13.9 yards per reception to finish his college career with 78 catches for 1,083 yards. A tremendously gifted and versatile athlete, Fant sometimes lined up as a traditional "inline" tight end but often ran routes out of the slot as a "move" tight, using his size and field-stretching 4.5 jets to create mismatches. Even if he doesn't open the season as the starter and shares snaps with backup Jeff Heuerman, Fant will still see plenty of action. Denver wants him to transition to regular every-down starting duties at some point, but Fant needs to improve his subpar blocking first. New Broncos offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello is expected to move Fant around and use him on bootlegs and rollouts. Joe Flacco loves to throw to his tight ends, but Flacco isn't going to air it out regularly in what's supposed to be a run-heavy attack. With a steep learning curve and timeshare usage likely for Fant, it would take a strong preseason for him to earn flier consideration.

Receiving: 17 Receptions, 222 Yards, 2 TD.
