2019 Fantasy Outlook
Fant's splashy film at Iowa caught everyone's attention, especially since the scouting community is desperately looking for the next George Kittle - another Hawkeye -to come about. Fant's good-but-not-dominant college stats can be directly tied to the depth of the Iowa roster; No. 8 overall pick T.J. Hockenson shared work with Fant in a run-first offense the last couple years. The prospect hounds were drooling when Fant destroyed the combine with a 4.5 40-yard dash and 39.5-inch vertical, but sometimes his play on the field wasn't as interesting - he struggled with dropped passes in college. Add it all up and the usual rules apply. We're plenty interested in Fant's future, but rookie tight ends are generally seen and not heard from, at least for fantasy purposes. The Broncos also have some other competition for TE snaps, bringing back Jeff Heuerman on a two-year, $8 million contract despite his uninspired performance last year. Toss in a shaky quarterback situation and it's a lot for a rookie tight end to overcome. Read Past Outlooks

Fant caught 40 of 66 passes for 562 yards and three touchdowns in 2019. He lost 12 yards on three carries and lost a fumble.
ANALYSIS
It was an uneven rookie campaign for the 2019 first-round pick, as he struggled at times to track the deep ball and did not establish himself as a blocker. Still, Fant showed some serious upside as a catch-and-run target with a team-leading up 388 yards after catch. His 14.1 yards per catch this season ranked behind only New Orleans' Jared Cook among tight ends. If Fant is able to be more consistent with fellow now-sophomore quarterback Drew Lock in 2020, his existing big-play ability could push him toward being an upper-echelon player at his position.
