Weekly Writeup
Week 3 was a dud for Burks. But the breakout might be coming soon, as he ran a route on a season-high (and team-leading) 97% of Tennessee’s dropbacks. Indy represents a neutral matchup so far.

View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • A big-time recruit, Burks went on to post 146-2,399-18 across 3 years at Arkansas.
  • He saved his best for his true junior season (2021): 66-1,104-11.
  • He soaked up 34.6% of the team’s catches, 41.1% of the receiving yards and 50% of the receiving TDs. Huge marks.
  • At 6’2, 225 pounds, Burks wins downfield and with impressive post-catch ability. He saw a lot of catch-and-run opportunities at Arkansas.
  • Straight-line speed and a lack of separation ability showed up on tape. His 40 time was a decent 4.55, but he posted an 8th percentile 3-cone (7.28).
  • Tennessee selected him 18th overall as the 6th WR drafted.
  • He joins a WR corps that lost 158 targets with the offseason departures of A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.
  • He’s been limited in early OTAs, potentially due to poor conditioning. Per multiple team insiders, Burks has required the use of an inhaler.
  • If Burks can develop this summer, he has a clear path to playing in 2-WR sets along with new trade acquisition Robert Woods.
  • This offense doesn’t project for high pass volume, though. Tennessee’s pass rate was 49.3% last year, 2nd lowest league-wide in year 1 under OC Todd Downing.
  • Ryan Tannehill returns for year 4. He showed some signs of decline in ’21, and his presence doesn't project as a boost for Burks.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Burks’ college tape was nothing short of electric. At 6’2, 225 pounds, he excels at maximizing yardage on catch-and-run opportunities.

Still plenty raw, though — mainly as a route runner — the 22-year-old figures to go through some growing pains. There’s certainly a scenario in which he improves with game experience and becomes more reliable after a Week 9 bye. But overall, a WR4 season is a more realistic outcome for Burks.

Burks to 'miss some time'

Titans rookie WR Treylon Burks' injury has been diagnosed as turf toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Burks will not need surgery but "will miss some time." Whether the team places the rookie on IR should give us a hint as to how soon he might return.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill had a modestly efficient game in Sunday's win over the Colts. He completed 17 of 21 passes for 137 yards (6.5 per attempt) and 2 TDs. Tannehill found WR Robert Woods and rookie TE Chig Okonkwo for his 2 scores. Woods and RB Dontrell Hilliard tied for the team lead with 4 catches apiece. Okonkwo's 3 receptions tied RB Derrick Henry for the next spot, even though Okonkwo trailed both Geoff Swaim and Austin Hooper in routes. WR Treylon Burks left early with a left foot injury.

Titans WR Treylon Burks was carted to the locker room after going down in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Colts. We'll update the rookie's status when we know more.

Update: Burks has a left foot injury and has been ruled out.

Titans rookie WR Treylon Burks didn't help any fantasy football teams with his 1-catch, 13-yard outing on just 2 targets in Sunday's win over the Raiders. But for the 1st time in his 3 pro games, Burks led Tennessee in routes. His total playing time has risen from 37% of snaps in the opener to 45% and then 69% vs. Las Vegas. The rookie had finished just 7th and 4th on the team in routes the previous 2 games. But he edged WR Robert Woods by 2 to lead that category in Week 3 while playing just 3 fewer snaps in total. The absence of WR Kyle Philips (concussion) might have helped, but it certainly can't explain the whole thing. Philips has lined up almost exclusively in the slot. Burks has barely spent any time there. The 1st-round pick clearly carries the most fantasy upside among Tennessee WRs. We'll see if he can start commanding the target volume to get him into fantasy football lineups.

Rookie WR Treylon Burks led the Titans with 6 targets in Monday night's loss to the Bills, catching 4 of them for a team-high 47 yards. He climbed to 3rd among Tennessee wideouts in playing time, 1 spot higher than Week 1. Fellow rookie WR Kyle Philips sank to 4th, playing just 23% of offensive snaps and drawing only 1 target. WR Robert Woods caught 4 of his 5 looks for 39 yards. TE Austin Hooper and WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine drew 4 targets apiece but managed only 1 reception each.

Dynasty Write-up
The 6’2, 225-pound Burks was often compared to A.J. Brown in the pre-draft process. We don’t necessarily see it – Brown was more refined coming out of Ole Miss – but that’s exactly who Burks will be replacing in Tennessee. Brown’s departure leaves Robert Woods (who’s 30 and coming off ACL surgery) as Burks’ only legitimate target competition. There’s longer-term QB questions with Ryan Tannehill turning 34 in July and carrying a massive $36.6 million cap hit in 2023. But 3rd-round rookie Malik Willis at least gives Tennessee a potential replacement. The biggest question with Burks is whether he can develop as a route runner. He’s ready-made to make an impact in the deep-passing game and as an after-the-catch weapon.
