Noah Fant will find it tough to log a third straight season as a top 12 fantasy tight end this year, catching passes from Geno Smith or Drew Lock. Fant was the TE12 and TE11 in fantasy points per game over the last two years. Fant's unreal athleticism carried him to 12th in yards per route run at the position last year (minimum 20 targets, per PFF), but it's unlikely to overcome a putrid offense this season. With the offense likely to struggle to put up points weekly with replacement-level quarterback play, Fant is best viewed as a TE2 option.
