News: 1 day agoFirkser recorded one reception on one target for nine yards in Sunday's 27-3 win over Kansas City.
Spin: Firkser struggled to gain a role in the offense and recorded only one target for the second consecutive game. It's unclear what has changed to minimize Firkser's involvement, but MyCole Pruitt has taken over a bigger role as a pass-catcher in recent weeks. For the season, Firkser has only 11 receptions for 95 yards across five games.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Firsker has operated as a situational player during his first three seasons in the league, but the 2018 UDFA is positioned for a larger role for the Titans in 2021 following the departure of Jonnu Smith. After maxing out at 24 targets during his first two seasons, Firkser hit career-best marks in targets (52), receptions (39) and yardage (387) in 2020. He's scored exactly one TD in each of his three seasons, though the one in 2020 came during an impressive 8-113-1 showing with Smith out in Week 6. Tennessee ranks sixth in fantasy points scored by TEs over the past two seasons, so perhaps Firkser can take his game up in notch in 2021. The 26-year-old is a sleeper, but only worth drafting in very deep leagues.
