The Denver Broncos love to throw to their tight ends, and they have two useful options with Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam. Both have had impressive performances this season, so what should fantasy owners be doing with them looking ahead to Sunday’s game?
Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos TEs Noah Fant, Albert Okwuegbunam
Fant returned from a high ankle sprain, though he was not himself in last weekend’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He finished with three catches for 38 yards on seven total targets. While Fant was nowhere near 100% healthy, Okwuegbunam caught all seven targets that went his way for 60 yards. Denver quarterback Drew Lock is struggling right now, and he is looking toward the tight end position often.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Fant should be in fantasy lineups this weekend as a low-end No. 1 tight end despite his injury, while Okwuegbunam can stay on the bench for fantasy purposes.
