  • Broncos' Noah Fant: Three catches in win

    Fant caught three of four targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Chargers.

    While the yardage was poor, Fant tied for the team lead in receptions with Javonte Williams, and he might have had a more appealing fantasy performance if depth tight end Eric Saubert hadn't vultured a one-yard TD in the fourth quarter. Fant has caught multiple passes in every game he's played this season, but he might need to be more productive in Week 13 against Kansas City.

  • Broncos' Noah Fant: Catches five passes in loss

    Fant caught five of six targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Eagles.

    Fant played the most snaps at tight end as the Broncos' No. 1 option at the position, but it was his backup Albert Okwuegbunam who led the team in receiving Sunday. Overall, Fant has been a disappointment for fantasy managers hoping for a breakout year for the 23-year-old. Over the past two games, he has also seen his snap percentage drop to 78 percent after being 90 percent or above for the four weeks prior. This is likely a function of Okwuegbunam's increased involvement on offense. The Broncos get a bye in Week 11, but Fant will look to have a bounce-back performance Week 12 against the Chargers.

  • Broncos' Noah Fant: Activated from COVID list

    Denver activated Fant (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Fant, who was placed on the list Nov. 2 and missed Sunday's win over the Cowboys, will rejoin the Broncos for practice Wednesday and is in line to return to the lineup this weekend against the Eagles. In eight games this season, Fant has logged 37 catches (on 53 targets) for 320 yards and three touchdowns, numbers that make him a viable weekly fantasy option at tight end.

  • Broncos' Noah Fant: Nearing return to practice

    Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Fant (illness) is close to clearing the league's COVID-19 protocols, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Fangio is optimistic that Fant will be able to rejoin the Broncos on Tuesday, but he has "one last hurdle" to clear before he's activated. The tight end has been on the reserve/COVID-19 list since Nov. 2 after testing positive for the virus, but it appears as though he has a good chance to return to action Sunday against the Eagles.

  • Broncos' Noah Fant: Not available Sunday

    Fant (illness) won't play in Sunday's game at Dallas, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    As predicted by coach Vic Vangio on Friday, Fant was unable to make his way through league protocols and be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for the virus Tuesday. He'll thus yield primary TE duties to Albert Okwuegbunam (knee), while Eric Saubert and Andrew Beck are on hand to step in at the position.

  • Broncos' Noah Fant: Not expected to play

    Coach Vic Fangio believes Fant (illness) won't come off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time to suit up Sunday in Dallas, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Denver has one of the league's more intriguing backup tight ends in Albert Okwuegbunam, but he's questionable himself due to a knee injury, so Eric Saubert could be pushed into a featured role come Sunday. Considering Fant is vaccinated, there's a good chance he'll be able to return in time for the Broncos' Week 10 home game against the Eagles.
