Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant was pushed out of bounds late in the first half after a reception in Week 17 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He avoided contact with head coach Jon Gruden, but defensive backs coach Jim O'Neil was caught trying to sneak a deliberate elbow at the tight end. Fant threw the ball at O'Neil, missed, then gave the coach a one-hand shove. 'That's never happened to me before,' Fant said Monday, Jan. 4. 'I thought that was very unprofessional. I'm not sure what coach does that...he went out of his way to shoulder me and he totally turned me around. I feel like I acted accordingly.'
Huddle Up: It was a strange ending to the second NFL season for Fant, who ended with career highs of 62 receptions, 93 targets and 673 yards while registering three touchdowns for the second year in a row. He will enter the 2021 campaign, his third in the NFL, as a borderline low-end TE1 or high TE2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant caught six of his nine targets for 65 yards in a 19-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fant topped 60 yards for the second game in a row, and he has a combined 14 catches on 20 targets in that stretch. With Drew Lock looking his way early and often, Fant is a low-end T1 ahead of Week 17.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant caught eight of 11 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: It was Fant's first end zone visit since Week 2 and his highest yardage total since Week 1. He was the only Broncos pass-catcher to top 20 receiving yards in a favorable matchup for tight ends. The poor play of QB Drew Lock will continue to leave Fant as a risky fantasy starter most weeks.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 17, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Fant left the last game early because of the illness and was held of the stat sheet but he has been successful during the second half of the season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Denver BRoncos TE Noah Fant (illness) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Fant should be good to go for Week 15 after not practicing Tuesday. He hasn't been as steady in recent weeks as he was earlier this season, but he's still a low-end TE1 with Denver likely to have some late scoring opportunities against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (illness) left the Week 14 game against the Carolina Panthers early, and he was unable to return due to illness, finishing with no offensive statistics.
Huddle Up: Fant wasn't even targeted once before leaving the game, leaving Troy Fumagalli (4-53-0) to serve as the team's top tight end. Fant is a question mark with a quicker turnaround before the Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (illness) left the Week 14 game early because of an illness and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Fant will be able to return to the game. Fant is a main option in the passing game when healthy and can be a No. 1 tight end most weeks.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant hauled in four of his seven targets for a team-high 57 yards in Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Fant appeared to a big part of the game plan early on and even beat Bashaud Breeland on a 37-yard play in the first half, but he and most of the other Broncos' pass-catchers seemed to disappear after the break. Since opening the season with touchdowns in back-to-back games, the second-year pro hasn't been back to the end zone. Fant is a superb talent that has been shackled by the limits of his quarterbacks in 2020, but the tight end position is such in fantasy where he will continue to remain in the low-end TE1 discussion most weeks.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant posted just one grab for 13 yards on two targets in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints, but that yardage total actually led the team.
Huddle Up: It was a long day for the Broncos, who had practice squad quarterback Kendall Hinton start with their top three options on the COVID list. Not good for fantasy owners of any Denver pass catcher. The Broncos will look to bounce back in Week 13 at Kansas City.
