Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Hit rarified rookie TE air with 1,026 rec. yards and 20% TeamTarget share, which should only rise with WRs Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage out of the picture in 2022Should certainly lose a decent amount of target share with Davante Adams now in the Raiders' fold, but that could be offset by also losing some defensive attention
Justin Lampkin
Clock Management Fantasy Football
Believe the hype! This man is going to break TE records for the next 10 years and I want him on my fantasy team for all of them. Pitts is the option #1 and #2. 
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Kyle Pitts lived up to all of the hype last season. Pitts ranked third in receiving yards and eighth in receptions among all tight ends. In deeper metrics, he was elite, ranking fourth in targets per snap and yards per route run (minimum 50 targets, per PFF). Since 2018 the only rookie tight end to finish their inaugural season with a higher yards per route run has been Albert Okwuegbunam (minimum 15 targets, per PFF). Pitts finished as the TE11 in fantasy points per game as the eyesore of only one receiving touchdown drug down his fantasy value. Pitts has TE1 overall upside if the touchdowns bounce back in a big way in 2022. 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
If Kyle Pitts' ADP is lower than it was in 2021, he will be a screaming value. At just 21 years old, Pitts finished third among tight ends in receiving yards (1,018) through 17 weeks of the season and third in route participation (80%) through 18 weeks. The rookie fell short of lofty preseason expectations, though, as he scored just one touchdown. Any other pass-catcher that compiled at least 1,000 receiving yards caught at least four touchdowns. And per PFF's expected fantasy points model, the Falcons tight end should have scored 5.6 touchdowns. With positive regression for Year 2 in his favor, draft the uber-talented Pitts aggressively everywhere in 2022.There's bound to be some hesitancy about drafting tight ends early after guys like George Kittle, Darren Waller, Kyle Pitts, T.J. Hockenson and Logan Thomas failed to live up to their lofty projections (due to injury or not). But the process was still sound behind adding some of those players in the early rounds if you look at their per-game production. Speaking to Waller, the Raiders tight end came in third in expected fantasy points per game (14.6), which ranked top-20 among all tight ends and wide receivers. He also ranked sixth in points per game (12.1) and second in targets per game (8.5) The major concern with Waller in 2022 is how much Davante Adams will eat into his targets. However, I'd focus more on valuing Waller based on how good the Raiders offense as a whole can be with the addition of Adams. I'd be willing to forego one or fewer targets per game for Waller, if it means more scoring opportunities. The big-bodied Black Hole tight end is primed for positive touchdown regression after converting just two of his 10 end-zone targets into touchdowns in 2021.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Pitts became the first rookie TE to top 1,000 receiving yards since Mike Ditka in 1961. With the Falcons punchless at WR, opponents routinely had their top CBs cover Pitts, and he produced anyway. Pitts' freakish athleticism gives him intoxicating upside. He scored only one touchdown in 2021, but the TDs will come.A consensus top-25 overall pick in 2021 after a huge 2020, Waller was a colossal disappointment. A late-season injury was partly to blame, but he was unimpactful for long stretches. Waller will be entering his age-30 season, so a bounceback can't be taken for granted, and it's a safe bet that WR Davante Adams will put a dent in Waller's target total.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The good news for Pitts is that he is a slam-dunk TE1 due to a 1000-yard rookie campaign, the first by a rookie tight end since Mike Ditka did that in 1961 in a 14-game schedule. The downside is Pitts scored only one touchdown, which needs to improve if he is going to be an elite fantasy tight end.Waller had four double-digit fantasy games in 2021, but he also missed 6 games due to injury. Waller is entering his 30-year old season in 2022, but he should still be an elite fantasy tight end.
