Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
In a study done of rookie TEs through their first six NFL games, Pitts has the most receiving yards of any player at his position in the Super Bowl era. Pitts has 471 receiving yards on the season through six games and the next closest player to him on that list is Jordan Reed in his rookie season with Washington in 2013 (388). Atlanta has really figured out how to utilize Pitts over the past two games and he now has back-to-back 100+ yard performances, which is again a NFL record for a rookie TE. Moving forward, there's no reason that we shouldn't view Pitts as a top-3 option every single week at the TE position and we know that he has the talent to make his opportunity count. The sky's the limit for what he can be from a fantasy football perspective. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Panthers are just 15th against fantasy tight ends, Pitts was the 3rd and 2nd ranked fantasy tight end in his last two games played and he should be an elite TE1 again this week.
