What You Need to Know:
  • Fant was shipped from Denver to Seattle in March as part of the Russell Wilson trade.
  • He was the 20th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft after averaging 13.9 yards per catch across 3 seasons at Iowa and earning a 98th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine.
  • Fant posted a 40-562-3 line as a rookie, finishing 14th among TEs in PPR points and 15th in non-PPR. He tallied the 17th most PPR points by a rookie TE since 2000.
  • Fant set new career highs with 93 targets, 62 catches and 673 yards in his 2nd season. He scored just 3 times but still finished 11th at his position in PPR points and 16th in non-PPR.
  • 2021 brought similar numbers: 90 targets, 68 catches, 670 yards and 4 TDs. Fant finished TE12 in both PPR and non-PPR scoring.
  • Here are his Pro Football Focus receiving grades by season (rank among TEs with 40+ targets):
    • 2019 - 61.4 (26th out of 36)
    • 2020 - 80.3 (4th out of 38)
    • 2021 - 69.5 (16th out of 35)
  • Fant’s yards per route run by season:
    • 2019 - 1.52 (17th)
    • 2020 - 1.64 (8th)
    • 2021 - 1.52 (12th)
  • Fant caught passes from Joe Flacco, Drew Lock, Brandon Allen, Jeff Driskel, Brett Rypien and Teddy Bridgewater in Denver.
    • The Broncos ranked 29th in Pro Football Focus’ 2019 passing grades, 31st in 2020 and 18th last year.
  • His QB play doesn’t project to be better in Seattle, where the Seahawks will trot out some combination of Drew Lock and Geno Smith.
  • The 2021 Seahawks ranked 31st in pass attempts and 24th in situation-neutral pass rate … with Russell Wilson. This will again be a run-centric offense in 2022.
  • D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett return as 1 of the league’s top WR duos.
  • As Seattle’s lead TE last year, Gerald Everett averaged 4.2 targets per game on a 14.7% share across 15 games.
    • He finished with 48 catches for 478 yards and 4 TDs, ranking 20th in PPR points per game and 22nd in non-PPR points per game.
  • 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.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Fant looked like the next elite TE heading into last year. He took a slight step back in 2021, his 3rd NFL season. But we’re still buying the talent.

The issue now that he’s in Seattle is that Fant will be playing in a run-leaning offense with questionable QB play and competing for targets with WRs D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

That figures to prevent him from hitting his ceiling this season, although he can still be considered a TE2 with upside.

Will Dissly, TE SEA

7:38pm EST 12/27/22

Will Dissly to IR

The Seahawks placed TE Will Dissly on IR with a knee injury, ending his regular season. Dissly has averaged 2.5 targets per game this season, so his absence is just a slight boost to TE Noah Fant's fantasy value.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Seahawks TE Noah Fant (knee) is expected to play vs. the Chiefs today. Fant is listed as questionable after getting in just a limited practice on Thursday, so it's safe to assume he won't be at 100% for this one. He remains in the fantasy mix, though, with WR Tyler Lockett's absence freeing up a bunch of target opportunity.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett will undergo surgery to repair his fractured finger, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It's possible he only misses one game and is back for the final two," Rapoport adds. "But a firm timetable will be available post-surgery." We'll keep you update on Lockett's rehab and timeline for return. His absence next weekend will leave Marquise Goodwin as Seattle's #2 WR -- and leave potential targets for WR D.K. Metcalf and TE Noah Fant.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly missed Wednesday's practice with a calf issue. Dissly isn't much of a fantasy option, but his absence vs. the Panthers this weekend would be a boost for TE Noah Fant.

Seahawks TE Noah Fant (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice after being limited the previous 2 days. Fant will continue splitting TE work with Will Dissly, leaving both guys outside TE1 territory.
