Kyle Pitts (hamstring) returning to Falcons practice Wednesday

Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts (hamstring) will return to practice on Wednesday, per head coach Arthur Smith.

What It Means:

Pitts was held out all of last week, so it's encouraging that he will at least be able to turn in a limited session on Wednesday. Smith said the Falcons will evaluate Pitts throughout the week, but barring a setback, the second-year tight end seems to be on track for Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers. Pitts only has one game this season with more than 25 yards and his snap share started trending down in Weeks 3-4, but he's still averaging 5.5 targets (14th among tight ends). Parker Hesse and Anthony Firkser combined for 2 receptions and 20 yards on 2 targets last week while playing all of the Falcons' tight end snaps.

Pitts is the TE7 in numberFire's Week 6 fantasy rankings against a 49ers defense that is allowing the second-fewest FanDuel points per game to the position. Our models project him for 6.6 targets, 3.9 receptions, and 51.0 yards.
