The Denver Broncos will travel to Las Vegas to take on the Raiders on Sunday. Tight end Noah Fant has been an average fantasy tight end throughout his career. It’s unfair to him, however, because he hasn’t gotten to play with the best quarterbacks.
Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos TE Noah Fant
In 13 games, Fantasy has 58 receptions for 532 yards and three touchdowns. He’s coming off one of his better games where he had five receptions for 57 yards. With Drew Lock taking over as the starter, I would expect Fant’s number’s to improve a bit.
The Las Vegas Raiders defense allows 225.3 passing yards which ranks 13th in the NFL. They’ve done a decent job in the last few weeks limiting opposing passing offenses. In their last matchup, they held Nick Mullens and the Browns to 147 passing yards. Against tight ends, the Raiders have been decent. But on the season, they’ve allowed tight ends to score a number of touchdowns. I think we could see that again with Fans this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
In both season-long fantasy and DFS, Fant should start.
