TE - ATL
Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts (hamstring) is officially active for Week 18 against the Saints.
Pitts has yet to miss a game in his rookie season, registering 66 catches for 1,018 yards and one touchdown. The 21-year-old should be viewed as a mid-range TE1 heading into Sunday's regular-season finale.
Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts is listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game against the Saints. He's dealing with a hamstring injury that limited him in practice on Friday.
Pitts has appeared in 16 games this season, catching 66 passes for 1,018 yards and two touchdowns. He'd rank as a mid-to-low TE1 if active. Of course, after head coach Arthur Smith said that Pitts merely "could" play Sunday, it's far from a lock that he'll be available for the season finale. Fantasy managers relying on the rookie should prepare a Plan B.
Falcons head coach Arthur Smith didn’t rule out Kyle Pitts for Sunday against New Orleans.
Smith said they have a few guys they’ll make decisions on Saturday whether they’ll play or not. After not practicing on Wednesday, Pitts was a limited participant on Thursday in practice. This will be a situation to continue to monitor.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts was not spotted during the portion of practice open to the media.
Pitts was not on the injury report last week, so it appears that the hamstring injury that bothered him on Sunday is the culprit. Pitts has been excellent this season, tallying 1,018 receiving yards, a new Falcons franchise record for any position. His lack of touchdowns is concerning but is not something that we have not seen before in Atlanta.
Falcons TE Kyle Pitts caught 4-of-7 targets for 77 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the 49ers.
Pitts had one of his best games of the year in Sunday's loss, logging 77 yards. While he hasn't been as-advertised in 2021, Pitts has shown promise in his rookie campaign. Pitts will look to end the year strong, starting in Week 16 against the Lions.
