Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 20th against fantasy tight ends, but Fant does not have much of a chance to produce meaningful fantasy numbers if Royce Freeman is the quarterback this week. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
New Orleans has stepped up its defense against opposing TEs as of late, but Fant remains a top-10 play here. The Broncos will surely be chasing points, and Fant is a trusted target for Drew Lock. Continue to utilize him as such. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Some may have been disappointed by Fant's performance last week, but they really shouldn't have been, as the Dolphins have been one of the better teams in the league against tight ends. Even better, it appears that Fant is moving around well and is back at full health. He's managed to finish in-between 35-57 yards in seven of the last eight games, but he hasn't scored since way back in Week 2. Both him and Hunter Henry have had very similar seasons, though Fant has certainly dealt with worse quarterback play. Unfortunately, tight ends have averaged 5.6 percent fewer fantasy points against the Saints than they do in non-Saints games, which ranks as the 10th-toughest matchup in the league. Outside of the game where Darren Waller went bananas against them back in Week 2, the Saints haven't allowed a tight end more than five catches or 62 yards, so the ceiling has been limited. The positive news is that we're expecting more pass attempts out of the Broncos this week, and Fant has a 16.2 percent target share, so he should offer a somewhat stable floor. He'll need them, as the 5.99 yards per target they've allowed to tight ends ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in the league.
