Fant caught a pass from Flacco in the back of the end zone in the 2nd quarter, but couldn't bring it down inbounds.

Fant missed another huge gain up the right seam with a pass that hit him in both hands in the 3rd quarter. Fant managed just one catch on a curl route for a short gain.

2019 Week 6 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Fant had a rough day as a receiver, catching 2 of his 3 targets for short gains on boring curl routes. His final target was a deep over-the-shoulder fade in the 3rd quarter, but Fant appeared to lose the ball in the sun and safety Kevin Byrad intercepted it while trailing in coverage.

2019 Week 5 vs LAC (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Fant had one catch on a shallow crossing route late in the first quarter. He was targeted once more on an out route in the 3rd quarter that Flacco underthrew.
