Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Although Fant has seen a ton of targets since Emmanuel Sanders was dealt to the 49ers, it has been slowing down lately which is a concern because Drew Lock is now under center which means nothing is guaranteed this week in a tough matchup versus the Texans. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Fant has 19 receiving yards over the past two games, and that in itself should scare you away from using him in a fantasy playoff matchup, even against a weak Texans pass defense. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We saw Jeff Heuerman out-target him 5-3 in Lock's first start, which is something to monitor, as Fant needs a lot of targets to be relied upon. Here's the worrisome part: Fant ran 20 routes while the remaining Broncos tight ends ran 12 routes in Week 12. Then, in Week 13, Fant ran 20 routes while the other tight ends ran 22 of them. His 71.4 percent snap share was his lowest since Week 6, though it's close to where he's been, so we're not in complete panic mode. The Texans haven't been a matchup you need to attack with streamers, either. They've allowed just 1.58 PPR points per target on the year, which is the sixth-best mark in the league. There have been six tight ends who've been able to total at least four receptions and 40 yards, so it's not a must-avoid matchup, but you should know that the tight ends who did hit those marks were Mark Andrews, Eric Ebron (twice), Austin Hooper, Travis Kelce, and Seth DeValve. The only tight end who appears out of place is DeValve, but we can't pretend his 4/41/0 will win you a week. The loss in target-share is worrisome, so combining that with the matchup, and you have yourself nothing more than a middling TE2.What a stud. He scored on Thanksgiving once again and did it against a Bills team that has been the best in the NFL against tight ends the last two years. He's seen at least four targets in every game this year and has averaged 6.3 targets over the last seven games. He doesn't offer a ceiling, but he does offer consistency. The Bears kind of fit that mold perfectly, as they have allowed just two tight ends to top 49 yards against them since the start of the 2018 season. However, there has been nine different tight ends who've totaled at least 30 yards against them this year. The 9.70 yards per reception they've allowed is among the lowest in the league, but the 5.8 receptions and 56.6 yards per game are both above average. He should be considered a middling TE2 who doesn't offer week-winning upside, but he should be locked in for four-plus targets and 30-plus yards.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Last week was Witten's best fantasy game of the season, but there is no reason to believe this output continues. He will continue getting a few catches per game, but they will not be fruitful for fantasy. There is no need to chase the box score with Witten.
