3 Falcons who are being under drafted in fantasy this season
By Nick Halden
3. Kyle Pitts
Despite the fact Pitts is being drafted as a top-five tight-end in basically every league there is still an argument the second-year player is being underrated this season. There is a reason Atlanta drafted Pitts as highly as they did despite this position.
If healthy he has a chance to put up numbers to rival Travis Kelce and the top receivers in the league this season. He is well worth the cost of an early-round pick and will prove to be more productive than many WR1s this season.
Finishing last season just over 1,000-yards it isn’t out of the realm of possibility to expect him to finish closer to 1,500-yards this season. With a full season under his belt and head coach Arthur Smith building to offensive game plan around Pitts, Patterson, and London there will be a lot of gaudy stat lines in Kyle’s second season.
The only other Atlanta fantasy option of note is an improving young defense. While the defense has made notable improvements this off-season their schedule combined with their lack of proven pass rushers will keep them from being a viable starting defense this season.
