Player Outlook
We would not advise drafting Fant in a standard redraft league after a disappointing first season in Seattle. Fant has now seen his targets, catches, and yards drop three straight seasons despite the fact that he has played more games each season. He set career lows with an 11.4% target share and 1.39 yards per route run last year. Even in Dynasty leagues, his Round 1 pedigree isn't going to carry him much longer. With the Jaxon Smith-Njigba pick, the Seahawks signaled that they are moving away from two tight end sets, so Fant will have to fight Will Dissly just to stay on the field. We'd advise holding Fant in Dynasty if you can. He'll be a free agent after this year, but the odds are growing long that he'll ever fulfill his potential.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Rings up 56 yards

    Fant caught all four of his targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 37-31 overtime win versus the Lions. Fant's afternoon was highlighted by a deep pass down the left sideline that gained 31 yards. The fifth-year pro's performance was a pleasant surprise after he wasn't targeted in Week 1. However, we shouldn't expect many more of these stat lines this year. After all, Fant topped 50 receiving yards in just one game last season.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: No targets in loss

    Fant wasn't targeted in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Rams. Fant recorded 25 offensive snaps, which was more than both Colby Parkinson (21) and Will Dissly (16). None of these tight ends are dependable for fantasy purposes until further notice, especially because wideouts DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Jaxon Smith-Njigba will be focal points of the passing game.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Good gain on one catch

    Fant brought in his only target for a 21-yard reception in the Seahawks' 22-14 preseason win over the Cowboys on Saturday night. The veteran tight end had progressed from opening camp on the active/PUP list to jumping into full practice participation this past week, so Saturday was the culmination of his recovery process. Fant checked in behind fellow tight end Will Dissly, and his reception came on a pass from Drew Lock during the Seahawks' fourth possession. Given he just made his exhibition debut Saturday, Fant could be given some run again during next Saturday afternoon's preseason finale against the Packers.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Fully practicing off knee surgery

    Fant (knee) was upgraded to full participation in practice this week, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Fant opened training camp on the active/PUP list after undergoing offseason knee surgery. He was activated July 30 but had been limited in practices up until this week. The 2019 first-round selection is entering the final year of his contract and is coming off a 2022 campaign where he averaged a career-low 28.6 yards per game with four touchdowns while he was part of a three-man tight end rotation alongside Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson. All three players are back in the fold for 2023, so Fant's role seems unlikely to change dramatically during his second season in Seattle.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Dealing with knee injury

    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Fant was placed on the active/PUP list Wednesday due to a knee concern, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Carroll relayed that Fant "had a little work done" on the knee in question, so it's unclear if the tight end underwent a procedure or merely was focusing behind the scenes on work with the Seahawks' training and medical staffs. Fant is able to practice and/or play at any point in the preseason, but in the meantime, Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson will handle most of the top-level tight-end reps for Seattle.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Goes on PUP list

    The Seahawks placed Fant (undisclosed) on the active/PUP list Wednesday for the start of training camp, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. The team provided no indication that Fant dealt with an injury or underwent surgery this offseason, but that doesn't necessarily mean nothing happened. The tight end could also be dealing with something minor that cropped up recently before the start of training camp, in which case Fant should be back on the field in short order. His competition for snaps looks much the same as last season, with Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson also returning to Seattle.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Career-low receiving yards

    Fant posted 50 catches (63 targets) for 486 yards and four touchdowns through 17 games during the 2022 season. While Fant tied his career high of four touchdowns, this was his worst season in terms of receiving yards. The fourth-year tight end split snaps with Will Dissly for the first 15 games, but when Dissly went down with a knee injury, Fant didn't take over the No. 1 job. Instead, Colby Parkinson leapfrogged Fant and operated as the clear top tight end. That setup is concerning for Fant heading into 2023, as both Dissly and Parkinson are under contract for at least one more year.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Set to play Saturday

    Fant (knee) doesn't have a designation for Saturday's wild-card contest at San Francisco, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Fant's practice limitations stem back to Week 16 prep as he tends to a knee injury, which didn't allow him to participate in Tuesday's walkthrough. But he managed limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday and now is ready to go for the first round of the postseason. While playing through his current health concern, Fant has recorded a cumulative 8-72-1 line on 10 targets over the last three games while operating behind fellow tight end Colby Parkinson.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Returns to limited practice

    Fant (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Fant has had practice limitations since Week 16 prep due to a knee issue, which kept him out of Tuesday's walk-through session entirely. His return to drills one day later bodes well for his chances of suiting up in Saturday's wild-card contest at San Francisco. Thursday's injury report may clear up Fant's status, and if it does, he'll be destined to team with Colby Parkinson as one of the Seahawks' top two tight ends this weekend.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Sits out practice

    Fant (knee) was listed as a non-participant at Tuesday's walk-through practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Due to a lingering knee injury, Fant has sat out the first practice of the week ahead of each of the Seahawks' last three games, but he's proceeded to suit up for each contest while producing a collective 8-72-1 receiving line on 10 targets. Assuming he didn't suffer any sort of major setback during Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams, he should be good to go for this Saturday's wild-card game in San Francisco. If that's the case, Fant would once again be in line to split snaps at tight end with Colby Parkinson.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Catches four short passes

    Fant caught all four of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win versus the Rams. Fant operated as the No. 2 tight end behind Colby Parkinson for a second straight week. He still managed to play 45 offensive snaps (64 percent) and ranked third on the team in targets, but Fant didn't gain more than eight yards on any of his catches. He has the ability to stretch the field with his speed. However, Fant's current usage is concerning for fantasy purposes as the Seahawks head to the playoffs.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Good to go

    Fant (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Fant was a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday after resting up Wednesday. He's been playing through the knee injury for a few weeks, but it might explain why Colby Parkinson benefited more after Will Dissly went on injured reserve with his own knee injury last week. In the 23-6 win over the Jets, Fant handled his typical snap share (62 percent) but saw only three targets.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Logs limited practice Thursday

    Fant (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Fant may be following the same practice regimen as last week, when he was a DNP on Wednesday before capping it with back-to-back limited sessions. In that scenario, he didn't carry a designation into this past Sunday's game against the Jets, when he hauled in two of three targets for 40 yards. Ultimately, Friday's injury report will reveal if Fant is cleared ahead of Sunday's contest versus the Rams.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Sits out practice Wednesday

    Fant (knee) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. For a third week in a row, Fant is operating under practice limitations due to a knee injury. He still suited up for both of the last two games, earning a typical snap share (55 percent Week 16, 63 percent Week 17) on his way to a combined four catches (on six targets) for 52 yards and a touchdown. Fant entered last weekend without a designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, and he could do so again this weekend against the Rams if gets in some practice reps Thursday and/or Friday.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Targeted three times in win

    Fant caught two of three targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 23-6 win over the Jets. Will Dissly (knee) is on injured reserve, so Fant handled 45 snaps -- his highest mark since Week 8. However, he was surpassed by Colby Parkinson, who logged a season-high 57 snaps (80 percent) and posted five catches for 36 yards and a touchdown. This was a surprising shift, as Fant and Dissly had been running ahead of Parkinson all year. Dynasty managers should keep an eye on Fant's role in the must-win matchup versus the Rams in Week 18.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: TEs to Sit

    I want to trust Fant since he's scored a touchdown in three of his past four games, and Tyler Lockett (finger) could remain out in Week 17. But Fant also had just three targets in Week 16 at Kansas City and finished with two catches for 12 yards and the score. He has one game this season with more than 49 receiving yards, and this isn't a great matchup against the Jets. They've only allowed two touchdowns to tight ends this season, and one was kind of fluky when Brock Wright scored on a 51-yard fourth-down play for the Lions in Week 15. If Fant doesn't score then his Fantasy production should be minimal in Week 17.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Cleared for Sunday

    Fant (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports. With fellow tight end Will Dissly (knee) placed on injured reserve this week and WRs Tyler Lockett (hand) and Marquise Goodwin (wrist) both listed as questionable, Fant could be the second or third option for QB Geno Smith this Sunday. The 2019 first-round pick scored touchdowns three of the past four games, but he's reached 50 yards just once all year while sharing snaps/routes with Dissly and Colby Parkinson.

    If Tyler Lockett remains out, Fant should have a decent target opportunity and has scored in three of his past four games.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Sits out practice Wednesday

    Fant (knee) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Last week, Fant missed the first two sessions with the same issue before returning to the field as a limited participant Thursday and then entering the weekend with a questionable designation. He ended up starting and leading Seattle tight ends in snap share (55 percent) in Saturday's loss to the Chiefs, and while he scored a touchdown among his two catches, he ranked behind Colby Parkinson in targets, 4-3. With Will Dissly (knee) going on injured reserve Tuesday, Fant is the top candidate to handle most of the team's reps at tight end moving forward, assuming he's able to suit up on game days.

  • Seahawks' Noah Fant: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    I hope Fant is healthy for Week 16 because he could benefit in a big way with Tyler Lockett (finger) out at Kansas City. Fant is dealing with a knee injury, but he's expected to play against the Chiefs. Fant scored in Week 15 against San Francisco with five catches for 32 yards on six targets, and he now has 14 PPR points in two of his past three outings. He's worth using as a streaming option in all leagues in a game where the Seahawks are likely chasing points and throwing a lot on the road. And the Chiefs just allowed two tight ends to score for the Texans in Week 15.
