The Titans have agreed to a 1-year deal with TE Anthony Firkser, Paul Kuharsky reports. It was an expected move and keeps the 26-year-old atop the current depth chart in a Titans offense that just let TE Jonnu Smith walk. We'll see what else Tennessee adds at the position. Firkser is OK at the TE3 level in current best-ball drafting -- with upside into TE2 range if he emerges as the starter.
Titans TE Jonnu Smith (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Browns. That puts TE Anthony Firkser in play as a lower-end spot-starter in seasonal fantasy leagues and as a punt play in DFS. He's actually run just 42 fewer routes and seen only 9 fewer targets than Smith this season and will now soak up the vast majority of the TE work this weekend. It's also a plus matchup vs. a Cleveland defense sitting 27th in Football Outsiders' TE coverage rankings and 31st in adjusted fantasy points allowed to the position.
Titans TE Jonnu Smith (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It looks like he's in danger of sitting out this weekend's game against the Browns. His absence would leave Anthony Firkser as Tennessee's lead TE. We'll update the situation again tomorrow.
Titans TE Jonnu Smith was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Texans with a 3rd-quarter ankle injury. TE Anthony Firkser had a big game in his place. We'll pass along an update on Smith when we get one.
Titans TE Jonnu Smith will miss the rest of the season with an MCL injury suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Smith suffered an MCL injury in last year's playoff loss to the Patriots, although it's unclear if this is the same knee. Anthony Firkser will serve as Tennessee's lead pass-catching TE the rest of the way.
