Summary

Noah Fant, the Broncos first-round pick in 2019, flashed some big-time ability as a rookie last season. Tight ends usually take time to get going at the pro level as they are learning two positions (receiver, blocker) in the NFL. Fant was a work-in-progress as a blocker but his receiving ability was shown multiple times during the 2019 season. Catching passes from three different quarterbacks (Joe Flacco, Brandon Allen, Drew Lock), Fant was able to snare 40 passes for 562 yards and three touchdowns. During that time, Fant had two, 100-yard games and went over 50 yards receiving on four occasions. The best part of Fant's game is his speed. He can get open with ease against linebackers tasked with covering him, especially down the middle seam. Fant has a big body and can use his broad frame to box out smaller defenders. He definitely brings a basketball-like skill set to the football field. Fant's speed means he can take short passes and turn them into long gains. He still needs to improve as a blocker and get a bit more consistent when it comes to a play-by-play basis. The Broncos didn't have many weapons on offense last year with Courtland Sutton and Fant doing most of the heavy lifting in the passing game once Emmanuel Sanders was traded away. This year, the Broncos offense has a ton of new weapons. This means Fant could get more favorable coverage and he could do more damage because of that. Fant should be projected as a high-end TE2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2020. (May 10)
