Removing last week from existence, Fant has totaled in-between 35-57 yards in seven games this season. He's also seen at least five targets in 8-of-9 games, which gives us what we want out of a tight end. If there's someone Fant would like to impress, it's the guy on the other sideline, who his game most resembles from the time they came into the league, as Kelce wasn't always a great blocker. When you adjust for the schedule they've played, the Chiefs are the eighth-best matchup for tight ends in PPR formats, as they average 12.5 percent more fantasy points against the Chiefs than they do in non-Chiefs games. Fant only totaled 3/38/0 on seven targets against them in the first game they played this year, but he was hobbling around all game as it was his first game back from his ankle injury. The game was also played in the snow. There have been five tight ends who've finished with at least five catches and 48 yards against them, which should present a decent floor for Fant in a game they fall behind. The 1.87 PPR points per target the Chiefs have allowed to tight ends is more than enough to go ahead and plug him in as a mid-to-low-end TE1.
