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

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.
