Kyle Pitts is notably absent, and this poses a significant challenge for the Atlanta Falcons


Kyle Pitts holds the distinction of being the highest-selected tight end in NFL history. Standing at 6-foot-6 and hailing from Florida, he was lauded for his remarkable speed considering his stature. Drafted 4th in 2021, many believed he could even excel as a wide receiver. Yet, the last two seasons have been less than stellar for him. A stat line showing two receptions for 21 yards has become all too familiar for Pitts since joining the NFL. Over his last 14 games, dating back to the onset of the 2022 season (during which he missed seven due to injury), he's only had two games surpassing 50 yards. When not sidelined by injuries, he's often barely noticeable on the gridiron. This season, he's recorded only 11 catches for a total of 121 yards.
