News: 1 day agoOkonkwo recorded three receptions on six targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Colts.
Spin: Okonkwo recorded the Titans' longest play from scrimmage on a 39-yard reception on the game's second play. He was held relatively quiet from that point forward, though he did also manage a 12-yard reception in overtime to set up a go-ahead field goal. After struggling to get looks downfield to start the season, Okoknwo has set his best yardage-total marks for the season in consecutive games.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: A fourth-round rookie, Okonkwo first played more than 30% of Tennessee's offensive snaps in Week 7 last season. From that point forward, the Maryland product handled a 13% target share (3.3 per game) despite only running a route on 37% of the Titans' pass plays. He wasn't much of a fantasy option (he ranked 26th with 6.9 PPG) and struggled with drops, but he flashed upside by finishing top two at TE in yards per target (10.0), yards per reception (14.1) and RAC (7.9). Only four TEs had more receiving yards after Week 8. Austin Hooper departed via free agency, leaving Okonkwo clearly atop the depth chart in Mike Vrabel's TE-friendly offense. Okonkwo is an intriguing breakout candidate worth a look in the late rounds.
