Why Anthony Firkser is a 2021 Breakout Candidate


This is a free preview of a 2021 player profile. Draft Sharks Insiders will have access to over 300 player profiles in mid-June.


Anthony Firkser, TE, Titans

What You Need to Know:

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Only 12 TEs reached 80 targets last season. Firkser has a clear path to get there in 2021. The Titans lost a combined 192 targets from last year with the departures of WR Corey Davis, WR Adam Humphries and TE Jonnu Smith. Smith accounted for 65 of those -- while Firkser saw 53 targets of his own.

With a weak depth chart at WR behind A.J. Brown and what should be a similar offensive scheme under former TEs coach and new OC Todd Downing, Firkser might just emerge as the #2 option in Tennessee’s passing game this year. He’s a nice later-round target in fantasy drafts with the potential to finish as a TE1.
