Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant's 8.3 yards after catch in 2019 ranked 15th in the NFL and was the best mark among tight ends.
Huddle Up: Fant had an inconsistent rookie campaign, but he finished with 40 catches for 562 yards and flashed the big-play ability that could make him a future fantasy stud. He could creep into TE1 status as soon as 2020, and his long-term stock remains strong.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant is going to emerge as a 'headache for defensive coordinators and show his more game-changing talent on a far more frequent basis,' according to Aric DiLalla of the team's website.
Huddle Up: DiLalla suspects Fant could nearly double last year's 40 catches, much in the same George Kittle did from his first to his second season. The difference between the two situations, however, is that Kittle didn't have players like Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy to share targets with at that time. Fant should have no problem beating last year's production and be a serviceable TE1, but the likelihood he explodes to the degree Kittle did as a sophomore is very unlikely.

Huddle Up: Fant had a few big games in an otherwise inconsistent rookie year. He still has long-term TE1 potential, but fantasy owners shouldn't bank on that leap coming in 2020.
