START: Noah Fant — Denver Broncos (at CLE)
At this point in the season, you can make a strong argument that Teddy Bridgewater’s favorite target is Noah Fant. The Iowa tight end can be flexed out all over the field. He’s too strong for safeties and corners, and is ultimately too athletic/quick for most linebackers. When you pair those skills with an elite pair of hands, you’re really cooking with someone special.
Fant has gotten at least 10 targets in two of his last three games. This included a 9-catch/97-yard effort (with a TD) this past weekend in the loss to the Raiders. With Bridgewater unable to really launch the ball downfield, Fant feasts on Bridgewater’s preferred short-to-intermediate game.
