Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite being an freakish athlete, Fant was an incredibly boring fantasy asset to roster in 2020, finishing with 35-57 yards in 9-of-15 games, while failing to top 81 yards in any one game. The issue stems from his quarterback, as the targets are simply not that valuable, because 93 of them (what Fant saw) is more than enough to be a reliable fantasy asset. Unfortunately, we don't know if Drew Lock will still be the quarterback, and the Broncos have Courtland Sutton returning to the lineup, which will surely cut into Fant's target share. On top of that, the team seemed to like using both Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam prior to Okwuegbunam's injury last year, which is another ding on Fant's fantasy stock. He's fine, but unless there's a change at quarterback, he's nothing you can't live without.There've been six times over the course of Higbee's career where he's tallied more than 67 yards. Five of those games came at the end of the 2019 season when Gerald Everett was either out of the lineup or very limited. Well, Everett has been signed by the Seahawks, and the next man up on the Rams depth chart to fill his spot is Bryce Hopkins, who's seen as many targets as I have in an NFL uniform (none). Eliminating Everett's targets and upgrading Higbee's quarterback is the recipe for success, and it shouldn't shock anyone to see Higbee finish as a top-10 tight end in 2021.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Fant suffered a huge loss in the offseason with the sudden passing of his mom. One of the symptoms of grief is fatigue, which could affect him this year. He's still very talented. You have to throw out the Saints game last year. The Broncos were forced to start a guy off the street, Kendall Hinton. Take away that game and Fant still produced like a top 10 fantasy TE. The o-line losing LT Juwann James hurts. Fant is a top 10 TE talent, maybe even top 5, but he needs Denver to trade for Aaron Rodgers or DeShaun Watson for him to reach his potential.Gerald Everett is in Seattle and with an upgrade at QB in Matthew Stafford, Higbee's fantasy potential could get interesting if you get him at the right price.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Fant missed just one game in 2020 and led the Broncos in receptions with 62. But his yards per catch dropped from 14.1 in his rookie year to just 10.9 last year, and Drew Lock had trouble getting in a rhythm. There will be plenty of options in the passing game for Denver this season, and Albert Okwuegbunam should return at some point during the year. But the Broncos surely know what they have in Fant and will likely make an effort to get him involved down the field more often. With either Lock or Teddy Bridgewater under center (unless Aaron Rodgers winds up in Denver), Fant's upside is capped a bit, but he should still be drafted as a starter in every league. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Fant's had sky high expectations since he came into the league, but he has yet to deliver the consistent production that fantasy managers were hoping for from him. The QB play has certainly hurt him and now he has several other receiving weapons to worry about this year. With Sutton, Jeudy, Hamler, Okwuegbunam, Gordon, and Williams all vying for targets, it's difficult to find a path for how Fant returns value on his current ADP. He has the talent - we can all acknowledge this - but if he doesn't get the targets necessary to be a viable fantasy asset, it doesn't much matter. Unless Fant's ADP falls outside of the top-12 this year, I'm unlikely to have many shares.Higbee's certainly had his moments of relevancy in the past, but this was mostly occurring when Gerald Everett was out of the lineup. With Everett now completely out of the picture in Seattle, and no other proven commodities next to Higbee at the TE position in LA, there's the potential that we see Higbee move back to being an integral part of this offense again this season. Matthew Stafford's now in town and this offense could be on the verge of going nuclear with Stafford's ability combined with Sean McVay's play-calling. At the TE position in fantasy football, you're simply looking for opportunity that can lead to upside. It's going to be hard to find a player who has more upside later on in your drafts than Higbee in this dynamic offense. My Very Early Projection: 62-709-7 receiving.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Fant had 118.3 fantasy points in 15 games, despite one of the weakest quarterback situations in the NFL. He should be a TE1 if Drew Lock can take a step forward this year at quarterback. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
While everyone raves about the physical talent Kyle Pitts has, Noah Fant, for the most part, tested better athletically. Outside of a 40-time that came in .01 second slower than Pitts, and a slightly lower speed score, Fant outperforms Pitts in most physical traits measurements. Add that to the fact that he passed the elusive 500-yard mark in his rookie season, and got over 600 yards in year two, and you have a player that is starring a third-year jump right in the face. The downside of Fant is the offense he plays in. Whether it's Lock or Bridgewater, Fant will be playing with a below-average QB in an offense that has A LOT of mouths to feed and a defense that limits the need for late-game garbage stats. In addition, he's battled injuries in his young career, so that's something to keep an eye on as well

 Everett gone unlocks a MASSIVE ceiling -- Higbees 5 games without him were the most absurd pace of all time.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Gerald Everett is gone, and Higbee could be a bounce back candidate to be a TE1 this year.
