Shark Bites

Titans rookie WR Treylon Burks missed a bunch of practice time this spring with conditioning issues that were supposedly related to asthma. But Burks college HC, Sam Pittman, said in a Wednesday radio appearance that he wasn't aware that Burks had asthma but that he did have conditioning problems while at Arkansas. "I’m assuming he didn’t go in there (to Titans minicamp) in great shape," Pittman said. "It was the same way when he was a sophomore — he wasn’t in good shape. It’s not that he quit, he just couldn’t do anymore. He just was out of shape." Burks can put all of this behind him if he's ready to go for the start of training camp. He'll be worth monitoring closely throughout August.

Recent Shark Bites

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 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.

Titans WR Treylon Burks played the 4th most snaps among Tennessee wideouts in Sunday's loss to the Giants. At 37% playing time, he trailed Robert Woods (71%), Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (68%) and fellow rookie Kyle Philips (48%). Burks saw nice involvement after a less-than-stellar preseason, though, finishing 2nd on the team in targets (5). The 1st-round pick caught 3 of those for 55 yards. He saw his 1st action on the team's initial possession. And the 2 incomplete passes thrown Burks' way were an end-zone target and a deep look that could have drawn a defensive PI call. Burks will still make for an iffy option in Week 2 fantasy lineups, but it was an encouraging start. Philips led the team in targets (9), receptions (6) and receiving yards (66). Woods and Westbrook-Ikhine each caught just 1 ball for 13 yards among 2 targets apiece.
