Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
No rookie tight end flew up the dynasty rankings more than Pat Freiermuth, who made his case as a fringe fantasy TE1 in Year 1. The Pittsburgh Steelers rookie ramped things up in Week 6 after an injury to Eric Ebron and never looked back. Baby Gronk was the TE7 from that time forward, averaging 11.3 fantasy points per game seventh). He would go on to finish the year as the TE13 overall despite running a route on just 56% of dropbacks. When starting and healthy, Freiermuth ran a route on 67% of dropbacks - a rate that would have ranked 15th-highest at the position in 2021. That's the bare minimum usage fantasy drafters should expect to see from the Penn State product with Ebron gone in free agency. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
"Muth" had a solid NFL debut but may be overdrafted in 2022 based on his rookie TD total (7). Averaged 8.3 yards per catch and 6.3 yards per target -- numbers that should restrain our enthusiasm.Once regarded as an elite TE prospect, Howard has been little more than a blocking tight end the last two years. Even with the move to Buffalo, it seems unlikely that Howard will become an impact fantasy contributor.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Freiermuth had 444 yards from scrimmage and 7 TDs in his rookie year and his future is bright, provided the Steelers fix their QB situation and their offensive line in 2022.
