Kyle Pitts had staggering expectations entering the NFL with a unicorn-like profile of physical traits plus being the fourth overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. Pitts quickly took over the Falcons passing game to the tune of being their WR1 with Calvin Ridley leaving the team after not being effective in the opening weeks. Pitts' rookie season would have been even more impressive on paper if not for a historically low touchdown rate, finding the end zone a mere one time on 68 receptions and 110 targets. With a lacking wide receiver depth chart - rivaling the worst in the NFL - only the limitations of Marcus Mariota under center will temper any ceiling being within reach for Pitts in 2022. Anthony Firkser flamed out in Tennessee after being a breakout candidate and the assumed starter in 2021. Firkser instead faded to a career-low 8.6 yards-per-reception on a team without a WR3 presence plus wide receiver starters A.J. Brown and Julio Jones both missing time during the season. Firkser devolves back into his familiar role as an ancillary option in Atlanta, but expect to see a quality number of snaps as tight end starter Kyle Pitts will rarely be aligned in-line or in a traditional tight end role.
