The Titans signed WR Tyler Boyd to a one-year deal worth up to $4.5 million, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Boyd is reuniting with new Titans HC Brian Callahan, who spent the past five seasons with Boyd in Cincinnati. Boyd went for a career-high 1,046 yards in Callahan's first season as Bengals OC back in 2019, but his yardage has declined each year since, bottoming out at 667 last year. Boyd's Pro Football Focus receiving grade has also been in decline. He ranked 63rd among 80 qualifiers last year.

The Titans surprisingly landed WR Calvin Ridley on Wednesday with a four-year, $92 million deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The pact includes $50 million guaranteed, adding Ridley to a WR corps that returns DeAndre Hopkins and Treylon Burks. That's probably the strongest collection of WR talent the franchise has had since moving from Houston to Nashville. And the Ridley move just might be the strongest sign that HC Brian Callahan's Titans plan to throw the ball quite a bit more than the Mike Vrabel version. Even big-money RB Tony Pollard brings more receiving pedigree than rushing. How will all these WRs fit together by target share? Burks figures to sit a clear third, barring some gigantic steps for him this summer. Ridley hasn't been as much of a target earner as Hopkins throughout their respective careers. So we'll likely favor Hopkins between them. But expect both veteran wideouts to garner shares of 20+%. As for scheme fit, Burks enjoyed quite a bit of success from the slot at Arkansas before arriving as a first-round pick. This will be a very interesting offense heading into the 2024 season. And the biggest individual winner might be QB Will Levis. He's available late in best ball drafts (QB27 Underdog Fantasy ADP) but can at least offer high weekly ceilings. There might be top-16 season upside to Levis. Check our best ball rankings for everyone's updated numbers.

The Titans are set to hire Brian Callahan as their new HC, according to multiple sources. It'll be the 39-year-old's first HC gig. Callahan spent the past five seasons as Cincinnati's OC, leading the Bengals to top-13 finishes in total yards and points in 2021 and 2022. Cincinnati sunk to 22nd in yards and 16th in points this past year, due in large part to QB Joe Burrow missing 7.5 games. Callahan was a pass-leaning play caller, with four of his five Bengals offenses ranking top-12 in pass rate, including a trio of top-6 finishes. That means a big shift is coming in Tennessee, where the Titans never finished higher than 25th in pass attempts in six seasons under HC Mike Vrabel. Callahan's arrival is certainly good news for the fantasy upside on QB Will Levis, WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Treylon Burks, and TE Chig Okonkwo.

The Titans fired HC Mike Vrabel. Tennessee went 41-24 over Vrabel's first four seasons, making the playoffs in 2019, 2020, and 2021. But the Titans won just 13 games total over the last two seasons and ranked bottom-5 in total offense both years. This offense might look a lot different in 2024, with a new coaching staff and potentially no Derrick Henry.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Colts. We’ll see how big a role he plays in his first action since Week 9, but Burks should not be in fantasy lineups.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and should play for the first time since Week 9. Burks’ return is a boost for QB Will Levis, but Burks himself is not a viable fantasy play in his first game back.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday -- his first since being carted off the field in Week 9. We'll see if Burks makes it back for Sunday's game vs. the Colts, but he won't be a bankable fantasy play.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. WR DeAndre Hopkins is the only piece of this Tennessee passing game that should be in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars. Chris Moore stepped in as Tennessee’s No. 2 WR last week but caught just two balls for 21 yards. DeAndre Hopkins remains the only viable fantasy play in this WR corps.

Titans WR Treylon Burks remains in the concussion protocol and won't practice on Wednesday, HC Mike Vrabel said. That makes Burks unlikely to play vs. the Jaguars this weekend. DeAndre Hopkins remains the only fantasy-relevant Titans WR.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bucs. He might be looking at an extended absence after being stretchered off the field last week. DeAndre Hopkins remains the only viable fantasy play in this Tennessee WR corps.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's a long shot to play vs. the Bucs this weekend and might miss time beyond that considering how serious his injury looked. Burks is droppable in most redraft fantasy leagues.

Titans WR Treylon Burks is in concussion protocol, HC Mike Vrabel said Friday. Vrabel added that Burks will be at the team's facility on Friday. It sounds like he avoided any significant injury beyond the concussion -- excellent news after he was taken off the field on a stretcher on Thursday night. We'll keep an eye on Burks' recovery, but he remains off the redraft radar for now.

Titans WR Treylon Burks was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Steelers. The back of his head slammed against the ground after he tried to make a catch on a deep ball. Burks was able to give a thumbs-up as he left the field. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Burks has full movement in all of his extremities, according to Amazon Prime's Kaylee Hartung.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) put in a full week of practice and is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. Burks is not a recommended Week 8 fantasy play with QB Will Levis expected to make his first career start.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. HC Mike Vrabel said early in the week that he’d use both QB Will Levis and QB Malik Willis in this one, but NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said Wednesday that Levis will be the “primary QB.” Regardless, you should try to avoid the entire Titans passing game in fantasy lineups this week.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. Burks has been out since Week 3. He totaled just six catches for 99 yards over the first three games of the season. With QB Will Levis likely under center, Burks is not a viable Week 8 fantasy play.

On Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Titans WR Treylon Burks will not travel with the team to London and has been ruled out for Week 6 vs. the Ravens. He's been dealing with a left knee injury for several weeks and will miss his third consecutive game. This news doesn't change our projections, as we'd anticipated Burks would eventually be ruled out, but it gives WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine some appeal in extremely deep leagues. Managers in 10 or 12-team leagues, however, can operate as usual. This isn't a huge needle-mover.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. HC Mike Vrabel said earlier this week that he was hoping Burks would be able to get back on the field this week. But fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him playing vs. the Ravens on Sunday morning.
