2024 Fantasy Football Early Breakout Candidates

Kyle Pitts (TE – ATL)

“The Falcons ponied up for the best QB in free agency when they went out and signed veteran Kirk Cousins to a huge deal. Captain Kirk will be the best QB that Kyle Pitts has ever played with, and the upgrade should help the Falcons’ offense boldly go where no man has gone before: The end zone ha ha! Atlanta also changed the coaching staff (new head coach Raheem Morris and new offensive coordinator Zac Robinson), which should lead to a more pass-oriented offense. Pitts was unstoppable in college, and as long as he and Cousins can stay healthy, it’s logical to think that Pitts will not only dominate this season but for many years to come. “Helm, lock phasers on Kyle Pitts (one of Ringo’s favorite draft targets in 2024)…..Fire Mr. Sulu!” Ringo’s honorable mentions for a breakout year (QBs/TEs)- Caleb Williams, Anthony Richardson. Dalton Kincaid, and Brock Bowers.”
Mark Ringo (Sleepers and Busts)

Dalton Kincaid (TE – BUF)

“Buffalo Bills tight end Dalton Kincaid has the opportunity to be a breakout in his sophomore season. After losing both Gabe Davis and Stefon Diggs this offseason, the Bills lack a pass catcher of any proven level; even if they use a first-round pick on a receiver, Kincaid would project to be the second target on this high-flying offense, and typically translates to elite levels of fantasy production.”
Aaron St Denis (Fantasy Football Universe)

Dalton Kincaid has a fantastic shot to break out in his second season. The Bills are without a star receiver with the recent trade of Stefon Diggs. Kincaid averaged 5.5 targets last season and should see an increase closer to ten in 2024. I expect the Bills to run more than 13 personnel with Kincaid and Dawson Knox. Kincaid should be a target to everyone looking to take advantage of the position in 2024.”
Steven Pintado (The Fantasy Coaches)

Trey McBride (TE – ARI)

“From Week 8 to the end of last year, Trey McBride put together a 26.7% Target Share, 2.24 YPRR, and 14.95 PPR PPG. Those marks would have ranked Trey McBride as the TE1 in each category, and in another season paired with Kyler Murray, we could see McBride finish as the overall TE1 in fantasy football.”
