News: 6 days agoTillman caught two of six targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 36-19 loss to the Rams in Week 13.
Spin: Tillman led the team's wideouts with 66 snaps and had a season high in targets. The rookie has been a regular presence on the field the last five weeks but it's only been recently that the usage translated into targets; Tillman's seen 11 passes thrown his way the last two weeks. Top wide receiver Amari Cooper sustained a concussion Sunday, leaving Tillman, Elijah Moore and David Bell as the top three healthy wideouts.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Tillman was selected in the third round of April's draft. The 6-foot-3 Tennessee product is a big, tough receiver who lived on the hook route (34% of his 167 career targets) during his five seasons with the Vols. After barely seeing the field his first three seasons (21 targets), Tillman busted out with a 64-1,081-12 (24% target share) line in 2021. He appeared set for another leap last season (30% target share), but an ankle injury limited him to a 37-417-3 line in six games. He's older than most rookie receivers, but he had a solid combine (including a 4.54 40-yard dash at 213 pounds) and will immediately compete for work as a vertical/perimeter option opposite Amari Cooper. He has competition (Elijah Moore, Donovan Peoples-Jones, David Bell) for No. 2 duties, however, so Tillman's primary value is in dynasty. He doesn't need to be drafted in season-long formats.
