The Lions signed WR Josh Reynolds to a 2-year deal with a "max value of $12 million," according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Reynolds joined Detroit last November after getting dumped by the Titans. He played 63+% of the offensive snaps in all 7 of his games with the Lions but averaged just 5.1 targets, 2.7 catches and 43.7 yards per game. We'll see what else Detroit does to address the WR room this offseason, but Reynolds isn't a great bet to be a real fantasy asset in 2022.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds and TE Brock Wright were activated from the COVID list on Monday. Both guys should be available for this weekend's finale vs. the Packers. WR Kalif Raymond remains on the COVID list for now.

The Lions on Monday placed WR Josh Reynolds on the COVID list. Unless we learn that he's a close contact, this should knock Reynolds out of any Week 17 fantasy-lineup consideration -- even if he makes it back in time for the game.

Lions WRs Josh Reynolds (thigh) and Kalif Raymond (shoulder) are active for today's game vs. the Falcons. Neither is a recommended fantasy play with Tim Boyle under center.

Lions WRs Josh Reynolds (thigh) and Kalif Raymond (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. Both guys got in 3 limited practices this week and figure to play on Sunday. But they carry more risk than usual -- to go along with their unexciting ceilings.

The Lions claimed WR Josh Reynolds off waivers from the Titans. Reynolds could find playing time in Detroit's weak WR corps but is unlikely to become a fantasy factor. You can leave him on the waiver wire.

Titans WR Josh Reynolds (foot) is inactive for today's game vs. the Cardinals. He was set to serve as Tennessee's #3 WR. Reynolds' absence should just mean a few extra targets for WRs A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.

The Titans have taken WR Dez Fitzpatrick in Round 4 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Fitzpatrick turned in an impressive 2017 redshirt freshman season, leading the Cardinals with 9 receiving scores and ranking 2nd with 45 catches and 699 yards. He never really progressed from there, although it’s worth noting that his 833 yards last year were a career high and beat Tutu Atwell's total by more than 200. Fitzpatrick also checks the size and athleticism boxes at 6’2, 208 pounds with 4.49 speed and a 35-inch vertical. He lands in a spot with opportunity. Tennessee let Corey Davis walk in free agency, dumped WR Adam Humphries and added only WR Josh Reynolds on a 1-year contract.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel thinks WR Josh Reynolds is capable of playing both "inside and outside." Reynolds played 74% of his snaps on the outside in each of the past 2 seasons with the Rams, but positional versatility can only help his cause in Tennessee. The Titans lost a whopping 192 targets from last year with the departures of Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and Jonnu Smith, so there's plenty of opportunity for Reynolds to carve out a big role in 2021.

The Titans have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Josh Reynolds, according to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com. The 26-year-old wideout posted career highs in targets (81), receptions (52) and receiving yards (618) with last year's Rams. His 11.9 yards per catch dipped vs. the previous 2 seasons, however. In Tennessee, Reynolds has a shot to replace Corey Davis opposite A.J. Brown, in a pass-catching corps that also shed Adam Humphries and TE Jonnu Smith this offseason. It's a nice landing spot for opportunity. We'll see what else the Titans add this spring.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is inactive for today's Divisional Round game vs. the Packers. It's a significant loss. WRs Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson will take on bigger roles with Kupp out, but WR Robert Woods is a good bet to lead the way in targets.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp is out for Week 17 after testing positive for COVID, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We're expecting WR Robert Woods to play more snaps in the slot and get a boost in target share vs. the Cardinals. WRs Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson should also get more playing time. Of course, the upside is capped on this passing game with QB John Wolford under center.

The Rams selected Florida WR Van Jefferson in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Scouts consider Jefferson 1 of the top route runners in this class. “He’s got size, really good quickness and route savvy,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He can separate. He’s going to be a really good pro.” Jefferson’s college career got off to a strong start when he ranked top 3 on Ole Miss in catches (49), yards (543) and TDs (3) as a redshirt freshman — notably finishing ahead of A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf. He flattened out from there, though. Jefferson posted a 42-456-1 line in 2017 before transferring to Florida, where he totaled 84 catches, 1,160 yard and 12 TDs over the past 2 seasons. He posted weak market shares in 2019 and ranked 24th in yards per route run among 30 of this year’s top WR prospects. Jefferson is also already 23 years old and is currently sidelined after undergoing surgery to repair a Jones Fracture in his right foot. He joins Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds in Los Angeles. Kupp and Reynolds are both set to be free agents after this season, while Woods is only signed through 2021.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Tuesday that the trade of WR Brandin Cook was “a big vote of confidence” for WR Josh Reynolds. “We just feel he’s a capable starting receiver," McVay added. Reynolds has spent the majority of his first 3 NFL seasons as Los Angeles' #4 WR. But he's been elevated due to injuries to the Rams' other WRs on occasion and fared decently. Reynolds has played 60+% of the offensive snaps in 14 career games and averaged 5.6 targets, 2.9 catches, 38.5 yards and .5 TDs in those outings. Cooks leaves behind an average of 6.3 targets per game over the last 2 seasons, creating a significant opportunity for Reynolds.

The Texans have traded the 57th pick in the NFL Draft to the Rams for WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th-round pick in 2022. Cooks joins the trio of Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb atop Houston's WR depth chart and should be the best bet to lead the group in targets. His departure from the Rams leaves room for WR Josh Reynolds to capture more playing time -- barring a significant WR addition in the upcoming draft. The Rams also cut Cooks' playing time in the 2nd half of last season, preferring to get more TEs on the field.

Rams WR Robert Woods is a surprise inactive for tonight's game against the Bears due to a personal issue, according to the team. We'll look for more details, but get Woods out of fantasy lineups. With Brandin Cooks (concussion) also out, Los Angeles is down to WRs Cooper Kupp, Josh Reynolds, Mike Thomas and JoJo Natson.

Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) is out for Sunday night's game against the Bears. He returned to a limited practice last Friday, but this early rule-out suggests he's not close to gaining full clearance. With Cooks sidelined last week, WR Josh Reynolds played 95% of the Rams' offensive snaps and saw 5 targets.

Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He's likely looking at an extended absence after sustaining the 4th documented concussion of his career and 2nd this year. Josh Reynolds will step in as Los Angeles' #3 WR for however long Cooks is out. In 8 games in which he's played 80+% of the offensive snaps over the past 2 seasons, Reynolds has averaged 6.6 targets, 3.4 catches, 49.3 yards and .75 TDs.
