The NFL season is just around the corner, and we all know what that means. We're getting ready to draft our NFL Fantasy team, which means that we're gathering as much information as we can about potential sleepers.
We already know the players who are going to be studs. Yeah, the Travis Kelces, Darren Wallers, and George Kittles are no-brainer picks. But what happens when we reach the final rounds of the draft?
This year, Bolavip's got you covered. So, buckle up, grab pen and paper, and check out the top 3 tight-end sleeper candidates to have a breakout season in 2021. Just thanks us later when you bring the trophy home.
NFL Fantasy 2021: Top 3 TE Sleeper Candidates
Honorable Mentions: Cole Kmet - Chicago Bears, Dallas Goedert - Philadelphia Eagles
3. Noah Fant - Denver Broncos
Noah Fant already showed glimpses of great play last season. He's bigger and stronger than most of his defensive assignments, and he's also a solid route-runner. But the best part is that he'll no longer have Drew Lock under center.
Besides a slight upgrade at quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater, the Denver Broncos now have more weapons at their disposal. That will open up the field for Fant to make the most of the mismatches and be a sneaky option at TE.
2. Kyle Pitts - Atlanta Falcons
Maybe Kyle Pitts isn't your typical sleeper because of his fame. Then again, taking a rookie TE in the first couple of rounds is a huge reach, so we expect him to drop in most league's boards out of caution.
Pitts is a physical specimen. He's fast, strong, and one of the most athletic players in the league. Matt Ryan is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league for Fantasy purposes and he'll be a perennial red zone threat.
1. Anthony Firkser - Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans boast one of the league's most explosive offenses and that's only going to be even more evident with Julio Jones lining up opposite A.J. Brown. Then again, we believe that Anthony Firkser is also going to get a fair share of touches.
Jonnu Smith left the team to join the New England Patriots and Ryan Tannehill has always known how to make the most of his TEs. Firkser will have virtually no competition as the team's pass-catching tight end in a high-octane offense.
