For those counting at home, Fant averaged just 2.8 targets per game with Fant under center after averaging 4.7 targets per game with Joe Flacco and Brandon Allen. There is a new offense installed, but there are also a bunch of other weapons that have been added, highlighting the concerns about his volume. The matchup this week is a great one though, as the Titans allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to tight ends last year. There were 12 different tight ends who finished as top-15 options against them, meaning three-quarters of the time, they allowed a streaming-worthy performance. Keep in mind there were only two times a tight end saw more than eight targets, too. Unfortunately, Fant was one of the tight ends who failed to finish as a top-15 tight end against them, as he caught 2-of-3 targets for a measly 16 yards in their Week 6 matchup that was with Flacco under center. Still, tight ends grow rapidly in their first three years, so we should expect him to take a step forward this year. There are a lot of unknowns, but Fant should be considered a high-end TE2 for this plus-matchup.
