Kyle Pitts, TE (ATL)

Non-factor in loss

Pitts caught two of five targets for eight yards during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

Pitts came into the contest listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, but the rookie first-round pick ultimately was able to suit up. However, the tight end produced his worst performance of the season. He finished the 2021 campaign with 68 catches for 1,026 yards, but he only scored one touchdown. Pitts was as advertised during his first season in the NFL and was one of the lone bright spots on the Falcons' sporadic offense, but he likely will have to improve as a red-zone threat in Year 2 if he's going to take over as a bonafide star.
