Kyle Pitts getting reps at both tight end and wide receiver

Kyle Pitts has been cross-training at tight end and wide receiver in the Falcons' new offensive system.

Fantasy Impact

New Atlanta offensive coordinator Zac Robinson recently said of Pitts that "he's learning basically two different positions" in the Falcons' new scheme. This is the type of new fantasy managers want to hear, as it should indicate that Robinson wants to get Pitts involved in the offense as much as possible. The former first-round pick could be poised to reassert himself as a top-tier TE following a couple of largely disappointing campaigns.

Kyle Pitts playing with more of an 'edge' in Falcons camp

Falcons coach Raheem Morris says he's starting to see more of an "edge" with Kyle Pitts in Falcons camp.

Fantasy Impact

Morris added that Pitts has a "personal vendetta" to get back to where he was as a rookie. After recording 1,026 yards receiving as a rookie, Pitts has combined for just 1,023 yards over 27 games in the past two seasons.

Kyle Pitts getting fifth-year option picked up

The Atlanta Falcons are exercising the fifth-year option for Kyle Pitts.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, the Falcons will pick up the fifth-year option to keep Pitts under contract for another season. He has been a bit disappointing so far relative to how much he was hyped up after being drafted fourth overall back in 2021, but this season he will finally be healthy and will presumably have good quarterback play from Kirk Cousins. This move was expected but still adds a bit more long-term security to the tight end's profile.

Kyle Pitts entering healthy offseason

Falcons GM Terry Fontenot said Kyle Pitts is healthy this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Fontenot added that the team still has a lot of faith in Pitts. New Falcons OC Zac Robinson has said he expects Pitts to be a key part of the Falcons passing attack. It is also worth noting that Atlanta released Jonnu Smith, who saw 70 targets last season.

Kyle Pitts logs two receptions in Week 18

Kyle Pitts completed 2-of-3 passes for 27 yards in the Falcons’ 48-17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Pitts continues to split time with Jonnu Smith at tight end, which has impacted his production this season. The 23-year-old will finish the season with 667 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 53 receptions. The Falcons could decide to move on from Arthur Smith, which would impact the offensive play calling in 2024.
