Noah Fant Expected To Be Ready For Week 1

Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said that rookie tight end Noah Fant (ankle) will be ready for Week 1 after he suffered a minor ankle injury in the preseason game against the 49ers on Monday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's great news for the Broncos, as they drafted Fant in the first round hoping that he could make an immediate impact in his rookie season alongside Jeff Heuerman and Jake Butt (if healthy). Fant easily has the most pass-catching upside of the group, but temper your expectations in Year 1 despite the fact that quarterback Joe Flacco often leans on his tight ends. Fant is a low-end TE2, at best. He's much more attractive in dynasty formats.

D.K. Metcalf Week-To-Week After Surgery

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf's knee surgery showed minimal injury, and he's listed as week-to-week as the regular season approaches. Metcalf could miss a game or two to begin the regular season, which drops his fantasy value some, but when healthy he's expected to be a starter across from Tyler Lockett and has considerable upside in his first season. The hype is real and his size and athleticism are off the charts, but be careful not to overvalue him in fantasy drafts. The lost time this preseason could easily cause him to start out slow in his rookie year. RotoBaller has Metcalf ranked as the No. 64 fantasy wideout. Take a chance on him in the later rounds.

Chris Lacy Making Strong Case For Roster Spot

Detroit Lions wide receiver Chris Lacy has moved up the Lions depth chart and falls below only wide receivers Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Danny Amendola. In addition, Amendola is still out (undisclosed) and there is little news on whether or not he will be back for the start of the regular season. If Lacy locks down the fourth receiver spot but all three receiver above him are healthy, he has little to no fantasy value. However, if one or more of those receivers doesn't play a certain week, Lacy could become interesting.
