Kyle Pitts ranks second among all tight ends to only Rob Gronkowski in Air Yards per game and average target distance, he ranks first in Air Yards per reception at 15.4, and he ranks fourth in red zone targets despite scoring just one touchdown on the year. Pitts is already living up to his top-five tight end ADP and it’s just the first half of his rookie year, and he isn’t even scoring touchdowns yet! The TE5 in PPR leagues, and the soon-to-be TE1 in dynasty leagues (if he isn’t already), Pitts is one of my new favorite players to watch, and his absolutely bonkers athleticism in that black Atlanta jersey makes it hard to not see flashes of a young Julio Jones.
Check out the positional rankings for more of my writeups, and I also pitched in on the Giants/Chiefs matchup in our Sit/Start article. And of course, you can listen to me on the Sit/Start Podcast as I talk matchups for nearly an hour and a half. Best of luck in Week 8, and happy Halloween everyone!
