The Denver Broncos return to practice on Wednesday in preparation for Week 15 vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, and tight end Noah Fant is expected to sit this first day. Head coach Vic Fangio said “his outlook appears positive,” according to NFL Network reporter James Palmer.
Fant injured his ankle in the team’s Week 14 win over the Houston Texans. After the game he said someone had stepped on his foot but x-rays were negative and he expected to be good for Week 15, according to beat writer Andrew Mason.
Fantasy football analysis: Broncos TE Noah Fant
Fant had a monster game for the Broncos, catching four passes for 113 yards and a touchdown. He’s been hit or miss, but his hits have been huge.
This week, the Broncos face a Chiefs defense that has given up the sixth most fantasy points to tight ends. If Fant is active, he will be a strong start in Week 15.
