It took a bit, but rookie TE Kyle Pitts may be cashing in on that high ADP finally. With receivers Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage sidelined, Pitts scored early for the Atlanta Falcons vs. the New York Jets in the London game in Week 5 on Sunday. It was the longest TD drought of his young career (though that’s only counting games at Florida).
Pitts is the early leading fantasy football point scorer on the Week 5 slate with 4 receptions for 36 yards and a TD, good for 13.6 fantasy points in PPR. He’s already about halfway to his career high in receiving yards in a game (73) and has already set a career high in fantasy points. Pitts is already up to 5 targets in the first quarter. Really the only thing holding him back from a massive fantasy outing is the Falcons lead 10-0 and are going to have a shot at extending the lead to start the second quarter.
