Editor’s Note: The season is just beginning for DLF! We begin our 2019 Early Look series today as the new year really puts our rookie coverage into high gear. Enjoy all we have to offer in the upcoming months and thanks to all of you for making DLF the world’s number one dynasty fantasy football site.
The 2019 tight end class is shaping up to be a promising one and Noah Fant figures to headline it. In nearly all of the devy drafts I have been a part of over the last year or so, there was one player who owners repeatedly hoped fell to them and Fant was clearly the one. Let’s take a look at what has everyone so excited about him.
AS A RECRUIT
Fant was only a three-star recruit (0.8665 composite score) coming out of Omaha, Nebraska. However, he was the top recruit out of Nebraska and the 31st-ranked athlete, a sneak preview into what makes him such a tantalizing prospect. He received offers from 12 colleges, including Iowa State, UCLA, Nebraska, and Iowa, the last being the school he ultimately decided to enroll in.
Before Iowa, he attended Omaha South Magnet High School in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska and ended up breaking the school touchdown record in 2014. His basketball team also won the state championship his senior year.
