Shark Bites

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.

Titans WR Treylon Burks caught 4 of 6 targets for 70 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Most of that yardage came on a 51-yard contested catch in the 3rd quarter. His biggest play, however, came early in the 2nd quarter. That's when the rookie recovered a Derrick Henry fumble in the end zone for the team's only TD. WRs Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine matched Burks for the team target lead. Westbrook-Ikhine caught 4 for 58 yards. Woods managed only 2 receptions for 16 yards.

Titans WR Treylon Burks caught 3 balls for 24 yards Sunday in his 1st action since suffering a toe injury back in Week 4. His 6 targets checked in 4th on the team, but Burks tied WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine for 2nd most routes, trailing only WR Robert Woods. We'd bet on more production for the rookie than Westbrook-Ikhine the rest of the way, in spite of the latter's big performance against Denver. Tennessee's run-leaning offense limits the upside, of course. Woods and TE Austin Hooper tied for 2nd on the team with 7 targets Sunday. Hooper caught 5 balls for 41 yards. Woods managed only 2 receptions for 10 yards.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (toe) has been activated from IR and will play vs. the Broncos on Sunday, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Burks has been out since going down with turf toe in Week 4. The rookie's playing time was growing before the injury, but it's unclear how big a role he'll return to out of the gate. Throw in a matchup with the league's #1 WR defense, and Burks isn't a recommended Week 10 fantasy starter.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (toe) has been designated to return from IR. He'll be back at practice this week and is eligible to play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. We'll see if he's ready. The rookie had worked himself into a full-time role before going down, although his volume still wasn't great. That figures to remain the case going forward, especially until QB Ryan Tannehill returns. Burks is worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams, but he's not a viable Week 10 starter.

1:51pm EDT 10/8/22

The Titans placed WR Treylon Burks on IR with his turf toe. He's out at least the next 4 games, making Week 10 his earliest possible return. Burks is droppable in fantasy leagues without an IR spot.
