Denver Broncos second-year tight end has been really effective when healthy this season. He was dominant over the first four weeks of the season before a high-ankle sprain forced him to miss the team's Week 6 game, and he hasn't quite gotten back to those early-season highs yet.

A ribs injury was threatening to keep him out again in Week 11, but Broncos fans can rest easy, as it looks like their star tight end will be out there against the Miami Dolphins.

Fant's presence in this offense will be huge, as quarterback Drew Lock has been battling injury issues of his own this week. With Lock likely to be playing at less than 100%, having his safety blanket out there should really help take some pressure off the second-year QB.

Denver does draw a tough matchup, however, as Miami checks in as a top-five scoring defense, surrendering just 20.2 points per game (PPG).

FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 11 NFL odds list Fant and the Broncos as 3.5-point underdogs against the Dolphins.
