Detroit Lions TE Sam LaPorta was the "best player on the field" during rookie minicamp Saturday, May 13, according to Colton Pouncy of The Athletic, and Pouncy said LaPorta was used as an in-line tight end and flexed out as a receiver.
Huddle Up: Rookie tight ends can be notoriously inconsistent, but LaPorta has a path to early playing time in a Detroit offense that should be potent. He is worth a look as a TE2 if he opens the year as a starter, and after Dalton Kincaid, LaPorta is arguably the strongest tight end option in rookie drafts.

Iowa TE Sam LaPorta was selected by the Detroit Lions with the 34th overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: LaPorta has a chance to earn the starting job during the rookie season, so fantasy players should keep an eye on his situation during training camp. He can be a No. 2 tight end in deeper leagues if he wins the job.
