Jonnu Smith Fantasy Football News 2020

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after practicing all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. Smith has a tough matchup on Sunday vs. the Steelers’ 7th-ranked TE defense. But he still sits 6th in our Week 7 TE rankings.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) progressed to a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to play against the Steelers this weekend. Despite the ankle injury and that tough matchup, Smith remains safely inside the top 10 TEs for Week 7.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's relatively good news after he was knocked out of last week's win over the Texans. Smith seemingly has a shot to play against the Steelers this weekend. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith has a "minor" ankle sprain and is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's relatively good news. Smith owners should line up a replacement for Week 7, but it doesn't sound like he'll be out beyond that.

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 WR Adam Humphries was activated from the COVID list this week. WR Corey Davis has not been and isn’t expected to play vs. the Texans on Sunday. WR A.J. Brown and TE Jonnu Smith should continue to dominate targets for Tennessee.

As of 12:30 pm ET on Sunday, the Bills-Titans game remains on for Tuesday night. There's still plenty of time for that to change, so you'll need to decide for yourself whether you want to risk leaving Bills and Titans players in your lineups. It'd be nice to at least have backup options available from Monday night's Chargers-Saints game. We've left our full projections in place for Bills and Titans players in the Week 5 Rankings.

The Titans have shut down their facility again after a coach tested positive for COVID on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The team had gone a couple days without a positive and seemed on track to play the Bills on Tuesday night. But that's now in serious doubt. We'll continue tracking the situation, but Bills and Titans players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

This week's Bills-Titans game has been moved to Tuesday at 6 pm ET, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That's only if Tennessee has no more positive COVID tests, though. It's unclear what will happen to this game if the Titans have more positives, but we know that it won't be part of Week 5. The good news is that it sounds like we'll know for sure whether we'll have Bills and Titans players available for fantasy lineups this week within the next 24 hours.

The Titans had 2 more players test positive for COVID on Wednesday morning, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. The team was expected to return to its facility today, but that can't happen now. Sunday's Titans-Bills game is now in serious jeopardy. Fantasy owners need to be prepared to be without players from those teams in Week 5.

The NFL announced on Thursday morning that the Steelers-Titans game will not be played this week after a 5th Titans player tested positive for COVID. We're still waiting to hear when the game will be played, but Week 4 now acts as a bye week for Steelers and Titans players. Get them out of your starting lineups.

The NFL is postponing this week's Steelers-Titans game after multiple Tennessee players tested positive for COVID earlier this week, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, hears that the game will be rescheduled for either Monday or Tuesday. That'd keep all Pittsburgh and Tennessee players available to use in Week 4 fantasy lineups. We're keeping those guys in the Week 4 Rankings for now -- but it'd still be wise to line up alternatives in case the situation changes.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He didn’t practice all week, so his status for Week 4 and beyond remains uncertain. Corey Davis, Jonnu Smith and Adam Humphries will again serve as Tennessee’s top 3 passing-game targets this weekend.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Dealing with a bone bruise in his knee, Brown might end up missing multiple games. His absence this weekend should mean more targets for WR Corey Davis and TE Jonnu Smith.

The Titans have released TE Delanie Walker. Walker racked up 381 catches across 7 seasons with Tennessee but played in just 8 total games over the past 2 seasons because of injuries. He has said he plans to play again in 2020 but will turn 36 in August. Jonnu Smith stands as the lead TE with Walker gone and will carry upside from his TE2 ADP if he remains in that spot. Tennessee also released K Ryan Succop.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel announced Monday that WR Corey Davis is in the concussion protocol. That makes him iffy for this weekend's must-win game against the Texans. Davis' absence would open up a few extra looks for WR A.J. Brown, WR Tajae Sharpe and TE Jonnu Smith.

1:11pm EST 11/27/19

The Titans have placed TE Delanie Walker (ankle) on IR. The 35-year-old has played in just 8 games over the past 2 seasons and might be at the end of his road. Jonnu Smith will operate as Tennessee's lead pass-catching TE the rest of the way, although he's tough to trust in Week 13 fantasy lineups after going target-less last week.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Jonnu Smith will continue to serve as Tennessee’s lead TE and is a lower-end TE1 play in fantasy lineups.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) returned to limited practices this week but is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. So Jonnu Smith gets another game as Tennessee's lead TE. He's averaged 6 targets in his last 3 outings and is a low-end TE1 option.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Jaguars after missing the previous 3 games. It's unclear how Tennessee would divvy playing time between Walker and Jonnu Smith.
