Kyle Pitts sidelined for Falcons with hamstring injury

Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts did not practice on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.

What It Means:

The injury could explain why Pitts played a season-low 62% of the Falcons' offensive snaps last week, but it's also worth noting that he had his most productive outing in the previous contest on a 67% snap rate. Either way, Pitts' status will need to be monitored ahead of Sunday's Week 5 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Falcons don't have another tight end on the roster worthy of fantasy consideration, but Drake London and Olamide Zaccheaus could see larger roles if Pitts sits.

Pitts is the TE4 in numberFire's Week 5 rankings and our models project him for 9.3 FanDuel points, with 4.2 catches and 57.1 yards on 6.8 targets. The Buccaneers have allowed the fourth-most FanDuel points to the tight end position this season.
