View TE Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Pitts posted a 68-1,026-1 line as a rookie last year.
    • The 1,026 receiving yards were the 2nd most by a rookie TE in NFL history.
    • The 68 catches ranked 3rd.
    • Pitts scored the 10th most PPR points per game and 18th most non-PPR points per game by a rookie.
  • Pitts’ 110 targets last year ranked 5th among TEs.
  • He finished 4th at the position in expected PPR points and 3rd in expected non-PPR points.
  • Pitts underachieved his usage, finishing 6th in actual PPR points and 8th in actual non-PPR points.
  • The problem, of course, was that he scored just 1 TD.
    • That was despite ranking 10th among TEs with 23 red-zone targets and 13th with 6 end-zone targets.
    • Based on his usage, Pitts was expected to score 6.1 TDs. That ranked 9th among TEs.
  • Although he’s listed as a TE, Pitts was more WR last year.
    • He played just 32% of his snaps in line. 37% came from the slot and 31% out wide.
    • Pitt’s 11.2-yard average depth of target led all TEs.
  • The Falcons lost WR Russell Gage to the Bucs in free agency. He finished 2nd to Pitts with 94 targets (16.4%) last year.
  • Atlanta spent the 8th overall pick of this spring’s draft on WR Drake London.
  • But the rest of the WR depth chart reads: Bryan Edwards, Olamide Zaccheaus, Damiere Byrd, Auden Tate, Khadarel Hodge, Frank Darby, Geronimo Allison, Cameron Batson.
  • The Falcons traded QB Matt Ryan to the Colts in March. They signed QB Marcus Mariota in free agency and then grabbed QB Desmond Ridder in Round 3 of this year’s draft.
    • Ryan remained respectable last year, completing 67.0% of his passes, averaging 7.1 yards per attempt and finishing 14th among 31 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus’ passing grades.
    • Mariota was decent across 5 seasons with the Titans, posting a 62.9% completion rate and 7.5 yards per attempt. He spent the past 2 years backing up Derek Carr in Vegas.
    • Ridder started 49 games at Cincinnati and is lauded for his football IQ. But he has average arm strength and inconsistent accuracy.
  • HC Arthur Smith returns for his 2nd season in Atlanta. The 2021 Falcons ranked:
    • 29th in total yards
    • 26th in points
    • 19th in pass attempts
    • 16th in pass yards
    • 25th in pass TDs
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Pitts turned in 1 of the best rookie TE seasons in NFL history, only muted by his 1 TD. He still finished TE6 in PPR points and TE8 in non-PPR – and he’s bound to score more TDs this year.

Atlanta’s passing game – and offense in general – figures to struggle this year with some combination of Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder under center. But Pitts’ combination of talent and projected volume makes him an easy top-4 TE with the upside to lead the position in fantasy points.
