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 one of three targets for five yards during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
In fellow rookie Drew Lock's first career start, fans were right to be eager to see a glimpse of what the future could hold for Lock and Fant as a tandem. They'll have to keep waiting. The quarterback missed connecting with his tight end on a pair of big plays Sunday -- first, Fant did not fight back to the ball in the end zone and had a would-be touchdown knocked away in the first quarter. Later, he lost track of a deep shot down the sideline in the third quarter. It's fair to wonder, given Lock's preseason injury and Fant's first-team status, how much the two rookies have actually worked together, so their chemistry should improve as Lock's practice reps increase. Sunday offers a nice matchup against Houston's 28th-ranked pass defense.
