Noah Fant made an early exit for the Denver Broncos in Week 14 thanks to a non-COVID illness. This also sidelined him from Tuesday's practice. He has now been entirely removed from the Denver Broncos' injury report, however.

That solidifies his fantasy outlook for Week 15.

Noah Fant Injury Update

Fant made it through just five snaps for the Broncos in Week 14, burning many fantasy football managers in the process. If you survived the blow and made it to the semi-finals in Week 15, you can feel very good about plugging him into your starting lineup again.

Noah Fant Fantasy Outlook Week 15

Fant racked up 7 targets in his last full game in Week 13, and that gives him two games with 7 targets and three with 5-plus across his last four outings. That's not elite volume, but the tight end position hasn't offered many strong options in 2020, and it's enough to make him a worthy starter.

That's especially true now, as he takes on a Buffalo Bills defense that checks in at a middling 15th in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA metric.

They have been especially susceptible to tight ends as well, allowing the leagues' sixth-most fantasy points per game to the position (compared to just the 20th-most to wide receivers).

Fant checks in as the No. 7 TE in our Week 15 PPR fantasy football rankings.
