What to do with Noah Fant in Week 7 fantasy football

We go over Noah Fant’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Broncos Week 7 matchup against the Raiders.

Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant has not played since Week 4. He’s been dealing with an ankle injury, but he is all set to return this week when the team takes on the Kansas City Chiefs. That’s good news for fantasy football, where production from the tight end position hasn’t been all that great so far this season.

Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos TE Noah Fant

Fant started the season strong, scoring in both of the Broncos’ first two games and rolling up 138 yards in those outings. The team is expecting big things from the second-year tight end, but a long list of injuries, most notably to Fant and quarterback Drew Lock, has hamstrung his start.

No more. Not only is Fant back in action, Lock is playing this week as well, his second game back after injury. Fant is one of Lock’s favorite targets, and they should pick up where they left off.

The Chiefs aren’t overly generous with opposing tight ends, but they have allowed them to score three times this season.
