Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts lined up out wide on 30 percent of snaps in 2021, according to NFL Next Gen Stats - the highest percentage for any tight end with at least 400 snaps.
Huddle Up: Head coach Arthur Smith has already shown he understands how to maximize his personnel, so expect this number to increase next season. The mere fact that Pitts topped 1,000 receiving yards as a rookie despite facing the opposition's top cornerback on a somewhat consistent basis obviously bodes well for his future. Even with a bit more touchdown luck (he had one on 68 catches this season), he should be considered a strong bet to finish inside the top three or four at his position in 2022.

Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts lined up as a tight end, slot receiver and outside receiver this season, playing at least 30 percent of his snaps from all three positions.
Huddle Up: Pitts delivered a 1,000-yard season as a rookie, but he somehow finished with just one touchdown catch. A few more trips to the end zone seem inevitable in his second season, and Pitts will enter 2022 as a midrange TE1 with upside.

Huddle Up: Pitts has been limited during practice the last two days and has a decent chance to play in Week 18, but fantasy players will know more closer to game time. He is one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a starting fantasy option if he is active.

Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts (hamstring) is considered 'questionable' to play in Week 18 versus the New Orleans Saints after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: It would be a shame if Pitts can't finish out the season, if only because he has been solid over the last month and stands 50 yards shy of breaking the league record for most receiving yards by a rookie tight end. Expect Pitts to be limited in practice at best for most - if not all - of the upcoming week and end up with a questionable tag on Friday's injury report. If he plays, Pitts should be in the majority of starting lineups in Week 18 despite the injury risk he carries.

Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts posted two receptions for 69 yards on four targets in Week 17 against the Bufflo Bills.
Huddle Up: Pitts has led the team in receiving yardage the past two games, and went over 1,000 yards for the season with this effort. The first-round pick out of Florida lived up to expectations and is a great fantasy option heading into 2022 and beyond.

Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts registered six receptions for 102 yards on six targets in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: It was the third 100-yard game of the season for the rookie, and his first since Week 7 in Miami. He hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 5 at N.Y. Jets, but he remains a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy formats, especially PPR. The Falcons travel to meet the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts caught four of his seven targets for 77 yards in a 31-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15.
Huddle Up: It has been an up-and-down rookie season for Pitts, but he has at least four grabs and 48 yards in three straight games. Pitts is a weekly TE1.
