Sam LaPorta explodes in Week 3

Sam LaPorta Headshot

Lions TE Sam LaPorta went off for eight catches on 11 targets for 84 yards and a score in Sunday's win over the Falcons. A big chunk of that production came on a blown coverage that resulted in an easy 45-yard score. But LaPorta's 11 targets were second on the team behind only WR Amon-Ra St. Brown's 12 and were a huge 33.3% of the team total. LaPorta now has 22 targets through three games. And his 18 catches are the most ever by a rookie TE through his first three games. LaPorta is an easy weekly starter and has a chance to finish the season as a top-six fantasy TE.
