Game day update: Fant is expected to play today, per Ian Rapoport.
Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant returned to practice on Friday as a full participant. However, he is still listed as questionable on the official injury report, dealing with a rib injury. He missed practice on Wednesday, and he was a limited participant on Thursday. It all points to him playing this week.
Fantasy impact: Noah Fant (rib injury)
Fant had just 18 yards last week against the Raiders, a season low, but he was still targeted a healthy seven times, catching three passes. He remains one of quarterback Drew Lock’s top options in the passing game, which gives him consistent fantasy value, a rarity among tight ends this season.
Fant hasn’t found the end zone Week 2, but he has the chance to make it back there this week against the Dolphins. Miami has surrendered three touchdowns to opposing tight ends in their last two games. Fant is a TE1.
