Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said TE Noah Fant had the "most spectacular camp of anybody" at June's mandatory minicamp, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. We all know Carroll is prone to hyperbole and general positivity. But this also follows reports of the new Seahawk digging a TE-friendly offense. Combine it all with an ADP that finds the former 1st-round pick deep in TE2 territory, and Fant presents clear value in fantasy football drafts right now.

We passed along a report earlier this week of Seahawks OC Shane Waldron's scheme looking friendly to TEs. Well, Noah Fant agrees. The former Bronco called it "very favorable" on Thursday, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson, specifically mentioning the downfield opportunities. That sounds especially good for Fant, who ran a 98th-percentile 40 time for the position. "I'm excited to be in this offense," Fant said. "I think I can do some good things in it." Seattle's weak QB situation has us cautious, but Fant's TE18 ADP (TE21 on Underdog) is just as cautious. That means there's more upside than risk.

Seahawks beat writer Brady Henderson writes that “TEs could be a bigger part” of the offense in 2022. The Seahawks ranked a mid-pack 17th in TE target share last year, so there’s room for growth. Noah Fant arrived over the offseason to give this unit a boost in athleticism. And don't forget about Will Dissly, who somehow earned a contract worth almost $16 million guaranteed in March. For now, we’re treating Fant as a TE2 and Dissly as a fantasy non-factor.

The Broncos have traded TE Noah Fant to Seattle as part of the Russell Wilson deal. That lands Fant in an offense with a TE void. Gerald Everett and Will Dissly are each set to hit free agency this month. His departure also leaves Albert Okwuegbunam as Denver's top incumbent at the position. Fant's new team will need to answer a big question at QB, where Drew Lock looks like the best current option. He faces potential opportunity but also joins an offensive system that didn't even go pass-heavy with Wilson at the helm. That fails to excite us for Fant's fantasy outlook. Okwuegbunam, meanwhile, brings physical upside -- albeit in a still-crowded offense. If he remains in the late rounds of current best-ball drafting, though, the 3rd-year player could be a terrific sleeper.

The Broncos fired HC Vic Fangio. He won just 7, 5 and 7 games across 3 seasons with Denver. No word yet on OC Pat Shurmur, but we imagine he'll also be gone. We'll see who GM George Paton tabs as his new HC.

Update: The Broncos have also fired OC Pat Shurmur, according to insider Mike Klis.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was placed on the COVID list on Friday, making him a long shot to play vs. the Chargers on Sunday. WR Tim Patrick is also on the COVID list, so Denver will likely be down to WRs Courtland Sutton, Kendall Hinton and Diontae Spencer. Sutton and TEs Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam should get target boosts this weekend, but it's still tough to get excited about any of them with QB Drew Lock.

Broncos WR Tim Patrick has been placed on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. Patrick has averaged 5 targets per game this season, so his absence leaves some extra volume for Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant. It'd still be tough to trust any of those guys in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles after getting in 2 limited practices this week. His absence would be a boost to TE Noah Fant’s outlook. Fant has averaged 8 targets per game without Okwuegbunam this season vs. 5.3 with him.

Broncos OC Pat Shurmur is in COVID protocols and won't be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Shurmur is Denver's offensive play-caller, so it's less-than-ideal for QB Teddy Bridgewater and Denver's skill-position guys.

Broncos TE Noah Fant has been activated from the COVID-19 list. The 24-year-old sat out last Sunday's win over Dallas. Back healthy, he profiles as a low-end TE1 this week vs. Philadelphia.

Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard any concern about his availability for this one. With TE Noah Fant (COVID) out, Okwuegbunam is a viable Week 9 spot starter.

Broncos TE Noah Fant remains on the COVID list as of Friday afternoon. HC Vic Fangio confirmed that he doesn't expect Fant to be available for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. That'll leave Albert Okwuegbunam as Denver's lead TE -- and a viable Week 9 fantasy spot starter.

The Broncos have placed TE Noah Fant on the COVID list. ESPN's Field Yates reports that Fant tested positive. If he's vaccinated, Fant would have a shot at returning for Sunday's game with 2 negative tests 24 hours apart. For now, we'd bet on him not being available Sunday against the Cowboys. That would elevate Albert Okwuegbunam to the top receiving role among Denver TEs.

The forecast for tonight's Broncos-Browns game calls for sustained winds up to 20 mph and gusts around 30 mph. That's enough to impact some longer throws and kicks -- and another reason to expect this to be a low-scoring game.

The Broncos have placed TE Albert Okwuegbunam on IR with a hamstring injury. He was already ruled out of Sundays game at Pittsburgh. Now he’ll miss at least 2 more beyond that. Okwuegbunam’s absence can only help the target outlook for lead Denver TE Noah Fant

The Broncos have ruled TE Albert Okwuegbunam out for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh. He injured a hamstring in practice Wednesday and then sat out the past 2 days. HC Vic Fangio says the team will "make a decision by Saturday if it's worth putting him on" IR, according to the Denver Post. We'll see about that. Okwuegbunam isn't much of a standalone fantasy option. His absence can only help the target outlook for TE Noah Fant, who already trails Courtland Sutton's team lead by just 1 for the year. With Sutton also questionable for Sunday, Fant carries big target upside into Week 5.

Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater is expected to clear the concussion protocol today and play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, according to insider Mike Klis. We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report later today. Bridgewater's availability would be good news for all of Denver's skill-position players.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (leg) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He should be full-go for this weekend’s opener vs. the Giants.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (leg) progressed to a full practice on Thursday. He's ready to go for this weekend's opener vs. the Giants.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's expected to be available for this weekend's game vs. the Giants, but his status is worth monitoring over the next few days.
