Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Fant was TE16 as a rookie, and Denver's offense is about to explode. His athleticism could be a big part of it, and slides him inside my top-15.Delanie Walker is finally gone, opening the door for a top-10 year for the uber-athletic Smith. He's tough to trust, but he could explode with an expanded role.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Kyle Rudolph caught 83 passes on 132 targets in 2016 with Pat Shurmur as Minnesota's tight ends coach for the first seven games and then offensive coordinator for the final nine. Evan Engram caught 89 passes on 132 targets in 19 games over Shurmur's two years as the Giants' head coach. Expect Fant to take on a big role with Shurmur in as Denver's new offensive coordinator.After catching six passes for 97 scoreless yards while playing behind Delanie Walker over the first six games of 2019, Smith played a much bigger role once Walker suffered a season-ending ankle injury. In a Divisional Round blowout of Baltimore, Smith tipped the ball back to himself in the corner of the end zone for one of the most impressive scores in recent memory.
Kevin Tompkins
Fighting Chance Fantasy
It's difficult to assess a true breakout for Fant in 2020. He didn't establish an immediate rapport with Drew Lock, and now there's more mouths to feed in the Denver offense. He's a bench stash in 2020 for me. I feel more comfortable with him as a TE2 to see if he can realize some of the upside for 2020 versus being my starting tight end.Not on Jonnu Smith for 2020. Not sure where the receiving work comes from when he's only running 240 routes out of the 701 snaps he received in 2019. He's basically a Ferrari Nick Boyle or Jeff Heuerman. For context, Mark Andrews played 457 snaps but ran 295 routes, and blocked a total of FOUR times in 2019. Jonnu has been on this 22%-24% blocking clip as far back as when Delanie Walker was still with the Titans in 2018. Unless something drastically changes with the amount of routes run for Jonnu Smith, we'll never see a true breakout. For 2020, Smith is player I'll pass on even in the late stages of drafts. Much more upside to be had with the Herndon/Irv Smith tier.
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
 Smith has the starting role all to himself heading into 2020, and an accurate, efficient QB targeting him. All of the ingredients point to a potential breakout season for the young tight end. If you're punting the position in your draft, an upside pick like Jonnu could pay off nicely by the end of the season.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
How is Noah Fant's ADP as high as TE8 on some sites?! Stop it right now! Do not consider taking him in the 6th or 7th round, wait until the double digit rounds and then you can consider him for his round 1 streaming appeal. Fant is a very talented player but Drew Lock doesn't want to give him the ball. Now the Broncos have added Jeudy, Hamler, Gordon and Albert O but Fant's going above Higbee? This has got to stop. He's a streaming TE, dynasty stash, and team name inspiration, that's where the hype train should end.The Titans were extraordinarily efficient in 2019, yet Jonnu Smith remained barely involved in the offense as Derrick Henry, Ryan Tannehill and A.J. Brown became fantasy studs. If TE19 is the best Smith can manage when everything went right, it's very hard to see him having such a bump that he jumps to fantasy prominence. He's not worth drafting in 2020 in the majority of leagues.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a successful rookie year for Fant. So many fantasy players have seemingly forgotten it typically takes a few years for tight ends to become someone you can rely on. He saw 66 targets his rookie year and ranked 15th in expected fantasy points among tight ends. The discerning part is that he didn't tally more than four targets in any game with Drew Lock. In fact, he averaged just 2.8 targets per game with him, while averaging 4.7 targets per game with the other quarterbacks. We've now watched the Broncos add three talented pass-catching options in Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Melvin Gordon this offseason, which won't help his target share go up. On top of that, they selected Okwuegbunam in the fourth round, who happens to be Lock's old college tight end who he loved targeting in the red zone. Fant is still the top tight end on this team, but I cannot say he's a lock to see 70-plus targets in 2020. That puts him outside the starting tight end territory, and knowing his ceiling might be around 80-85 targets, I would probably look elsewhere in the TE10-15 range for someone with true breakout potential.Many compared Smith to someone like Delanie Walker back when he was drafted in 2017. We saw shades of that and even heard Bill Belichick give him props as one of the top tight ends in the league prior to their playoff matchup. Still, he's going to need more than 3-5 targets per game to get into the TE1 conversation. Despite Walker going down for the year, Smith saw more than five targets just twice all season and finished with 44 on the year. With the offense still projected for less than 500 pass attempts, it'll be difficult for Smith to truly break out. He should be considered a strong streamer in good matchups.
Frank Bonincontri
Fantasy Wire HQ
If Denver's new look offense is truly a "pick your poison" type affair, Fant would likely share targets among Jeudy, Sutton, Gordon but the key is Drew Lock for now. I love Fant more in dynasty then I do in RedraftIt is a Derrick Henry featured offense but hoping Smith steps on the scene in a big way for 2020.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Like most rookie TE's, Fant wasn't very productive as a rookie but when given the opportunity, he showed legitimate breakout talent. Now, as he enters year two in the NFL, expect him to be more involved in the offense, especially in the red-zone.Jonnu Smith was everyone's favorite breakout candidate last year and even with the Titans playing great football, Smith was rarely involved. He finished the season with only 35 receptions, 439 yards, and three TDs. He still has the talent to be a viable fantasy TE, but I have to see it before I trust him as my weekly starter.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Fant was a great streaming option in a few matchups last season, but he certainly has more competition for targets now in Denver this season. Fant has the talent to be a true fantasy star, but he may just not see enough target volume to be a consistent option week in and week out. He should finish towards the TE1 range, but it might just be on the back of a few games here or there.If you're looking for a player who's going to be a steal in the later rounds of your draft, look no further than Smith. He should easily be second on this team in targets and he has the talent and athleticism to make it count. If you don't get the top two or three options at the tight end position, it's my personal recommendation to wait it out and snag Smith in the later rounds.

 Steadily increased his production over his first 3 years, while sitting behind Delanie Walker. He might not have performed as well as we'd like with Walker having a limited role in 2019 but it was his first year truly starting. Showed enough flashes and is also another hyper athletic TE to target late, on a team that lacks weapons in the passing game aside from AJ Brown. Targeted on 21% of routes run in 2019. ADP of TE17 in redraft. Walker and his 31 TE targets have left the building. 8th in yards per route run among TEs with a minimum of 40 targets. While not on the same level of production as Kittle, was just above him in % of YAC in 2019, 94th percentile burst score allows him to pull away after the catch 9th in YAC with half as much opportunity to produce it as the most of the guys ahead of him, which means he was 2nd in YAC/REC, only behind Noah Fant, and just ahead of George Kittle 7th in % of targets caught. So he is ready to make the most off potentially limited targets, by catching nearly 80% of them, and then has elite YAC ability when he does get it, on a team with underrated QB play, and The TE room finally all to himself?

 Smith is one of the more intriguing names to be outside of the TE1 range. He is one of the most efficient tight ends in the game, and has a clear road to targets at the position now that Delanie Walker is no longer in his way. The problem is that there aren't all that many targets to go around in Tennessee, and Smith's targets have rarely come around the end zone. If that changes, then he's certainly got a shot at being fantasy-relevant. For now, however, he should be drafted as a TE1 only in 15-team leagues or larger or those that reward bonus points for tight ends.

Flashed elite athleticism and a solid rapport w/ Drew Lock. Inconsistent hands need to be improved uponDelanie Walker's release could unlock more usage for one of the NFL's most athletic TEs

Fant had 550 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns in his rookie campaign, despite playing with 3 starting quarterbacks. He could be a TE1 sleeper in 2020, if QB Drew Lock can stay healthy.
