Noah Fant's first season in Seattle resulted in the lowest yardage total (486) of his four-year career, as he had to share TE snaps and targets with Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson. Fant is still only 25 and is one of the more athletic tight ends in the league, but that has yet to translate into a top-10 fantasy finish at the position. He's had two top-12 finishes in half-point PPR formats, however, and the combination of youth and athleticism gives him plausible fantasy upside in the later rounds of drafts. It's worth noting, however, that with the selection of WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the first round of the NFL Draft, the Seahawks might go with more three-WR sets and fewer two-TE sets, which could mean lower snap counts for Fant.
