Pharaoh Brown Active Against Jets

Sunday, January 7, 12:21 PM

Despite being listed as questionable to play in the Week 18 regular season finale against the New York Jets on Sunday, New England Patriots tight end Pharaoh Brown (ribs) is active. It's notable mainly because starting tight end Hunter Henry (knee) will close out the year with his third straight absence. With Henry still out, the 29-year-old Brown should have a bigger role in the passing attack, although he's going to share valuable snaps with fellow tight end Mike Gesicki. At best, Brown will be a low-cost, touchdown-dependent, low-upside DFS play at the tight end position in a meaningless game. Brown hasn't caught more than two passes in any game this year and has a total of just 12 receptions for 208 yards and one touchdown on 12 targets all season.

Noah Fant Won't Be Back On Sunday

Sunday, January 7, 5:41 PM

Seattle Seahawks tight end Noah Fant (hand) won't return to Sunday's meeting with the Arizona Cardinals. The 26-year-old suffered a hand injury in the first half, so he'll finish without a catch. At any rate, Fant hasn't been a routine fantasy performer all year, and Week 18 may cap off another underwhelming season. But if anything, his absence could open up more targets for Colby Parkinson and Will Dissly for the rest of the contest, although neither player can be trusted from a fantasy standpoint.
