Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant caught four of his five targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fant also added a two-point conversion.
Huddle Up: In case anyone believed Fant's 81-yard, one-score effort in Week 1 was a fluke, it wasn't. The second-year tight end scored from 20 yards out late in the third quarter and also had a 22-yard grab against arguably the best defense in the league. He'll have his hands full again in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he's quickly emerging as a player that needs to be in fantasy lineups just about every week.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant had team highs with five receptions and 81 yards in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans, and he scored one touchdown with six targets.
Huddle Up: It was a nice showing for Fant, and he was easily the best Broncos pass catcher from a fantasy perspective, with rookie Jerry Jeudy a distant second. The Broncos meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, because of an illness that is not related to COVID-19.
Huddle Up: Fant probably will return to the field in the next few days. He showed good chemistry with Drew Lock last season and should receive a solid amount of targets this season. Fant can be considered a No. 1 tight end in some fantasy leagues.

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.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant needs to add some 'diversity to his route tree' by improving his short-to-intermediate routes, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com.
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.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant caught both of his targets for 10 yards in a 27-17 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fant's up-and-down season continued, and in his last seven games, he has topped 50 yards four times and been held below 15 yards three times. He will be a high-risk, high-reward streaming option in the season finale.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (illness, shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Fant has been a solid part of the passing game over the last few weeks and should see a handful of targets against the Detroit Lions. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (illness, shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fant should be able to play in the Week 16 game as long as he recovers from his illness. He has shown good chemistry with Drew Lock and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (shoulder) stayed limited at practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Fant remains a risky fantasy play even when he's healthy. He has flashed some of his top-end potential in recent week, but he received just three targets in two of his last three games. He should only be considered as a TE2.
