View TE Fantasy Rankings »
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.
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.

Noah Fant, TE SEA

7:15am EDT 6/30/22

Fant 'spectacular' at minicamp

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.

Dynasty Write-up
Fant hasn’t yet delivered on the promise of a Round 1 NFL pick. Poor QB play has hurt, but we're ultimately looking at a guy with 10 career TDs in 3 seasons. We’re not giving up on someone with his level of athleticism, though. 2022 just brings more uncertainty following a trade to Seattle, a team now without a franchise passer.
