Week 4
A semi-popular sleeper TE, Firkser has yet to get his season going. After an injury in Week 1, Firkser returned to the lineup in Week 4. Firkser saw his playing time skyrocket as he ran 41 routes on the week. More encouraging for Firkser is he ran 41 routes compared to 17 combined routes for all the other TEs on the team.
Firsker is a name to monitor as the Titans have utilized the TE position over the past few years. If this usage continues, Firkser could find himself back on the TE streamer radar after seeing 5 targets in Week 4.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • A 2018 undrafted free-agent out of Harvard, Firkser totaled just 33 catches and 2 TDs across his first 2 NFL seasons.
  • He easily set new career highs across the board last year, hauling in 39 of 53 targets for 387 yards and a score.
  • Firkser played behind lead TE Jonnu Smith for most of the season. But with Smith out vs. the Browns in Week 13, Firkser turned 7 targets into 5 catches and 51 yards. And after Smith exited early in a Week 6 meeting with the Texans, Firkser exploded for an 8-113-1 line.
  • Among 34 TEs with 40+ targets last year, Firkser ranked 5th in yards per route run and 10th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade. (Jonnu Smith ranked 14th and 7th.)
  • Smith signed with the Patriots in free agency, leaving behind 65 targets from a year ago. The Titans lost another 127 targets with the departures of WRs Corey Davis and Adam Humphries.
  • The Titans swung a trade for WR Julio Jones in June. He’s 32 now and had his fair share of injury problems. But he’s remained dominant when on the field. We’re projecting him to see more than the 6.6 targets per game Davis averaged last year.
  • But there’s still room for Firkser to pick up some of those targets Smith leaves behind.
  • Under OC Arthur Smith the past 2 years, Titans TEs combined for 23.9% and 28.5% of the team’s targets. (League-wide TE target share over that span was 20.0%.)
  • Smith left to become Falcons HC but will be replaced by Todd Downing, who spent the past 2 seasons as Tennessee’s TE coach. So there should be continuity in scheme and a continued emphasis on the TEs in the passing game.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Only 12 TEs reached 80 targets last season. Firkser has a chance 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. WR Julio Jones will soak up a big chunk of those. But Firkser should add some of the 65 targets Smith leaves behind.

He’s a nice later-round target in fantasy drafts with the potential to sneak into low-end TE1 territory.

Titans TE Anthony Firkser (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play vs. the Jets after missing the past 2 games. Firkser could be in for an expanded role in the passing game with WRs A.J. Brown and Julio Jones out, making him an intriguing DFS flier.

Titans TE Anthony Firkser (knee) got in a full practice on Wednesday. So he should be back for this weekend's game vs. the Jets -- good news for a Titans offense that might be without both A.J. Brown and Julio Jones. We still wouldn't trust Firkser in season-long lineups, but he could be a sneaky DFS play.

Titans TE Anthony Firkser (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts. With Firkser sidelined last week, TE MyCole Pruitt ran 19 routes (40%) and saw 3 targets vs. TE Geoff Swaim’s 17 routes (38%) and 2 targets. Neither is a viable fantasy play.

Titans TE Anthony Firkser (knee) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Colts this weekend. TEs MyCole Pruitt and Geoff Swaim split pass routes with Firkser out last week, leaving both guys without bankable fantasy value.
