Heuerman caught three of five targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers.

It's predictable for a tight end to serve as his rookie quarterback's security blanket, but many fans predicted it'd be Noah Fant helping out Drew Lock in his first start. Instead it was Heuerman tying Courtland Sutton for the team lead with five targets despite playing on just 28 of 57 offensive snaps, 13 fewer than Fant. All three of Heuerman's catches converted a third down. Converting third-and-twos isn't the path to fantasy glory, but Lock's reliance on him is worth noting, especially given the dearth of reliable targets on the roster behind Sutton. Next up is a trip to Houston and a matchup against the Texans' 28th-ranked pass defense.
