Anthony Firkser ruled out for Week 2

Titans tight end Anthony Firkser (knee) is inactive for Sunday’s game.

Fantasy Impact

Firkser was injured his knee during practice on Wednesday. He was limited on Thursday but did not practice on Friday. The 26-year-old caught three of four targets last week and was held to just 19 yards. Geoff Swaim is expected to start in his place against Seattle.

Anthony Firkser limited again on Thursday

Titans tight end Anthony Firkser (knee) was limited during practice on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Firkser has now been listed as limited in back-to-back practices. There's a good chance he'll suit up on Sunday, though he could head into the weekend with a "questionable" designation. It will be important to check back on his status on Friday. If Firkser is unable to play, Geoff Swaim would be the next man up at tight end.

Anthony Firkser catches three passes in loss to Arizona

Anthony Firkser caught 3-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Titans' Week 1 loss to the Cardinals by a 38-13 score.

Fantasy Impact

Firkser was the only tight end to catch a pass and looks to have moved past Geoff Swain on the depth chart. The 26-year-old TE is worth rostering in deeper fantasy leagues.

Anthony Firkser serves as 'busiest pass catcher on Thursday'

According to Titans reporter Jim Wyatt, tight end Anthony Firkser was the busiest pass catcher during Thursday's OTAs. Wyatt says he "counted four catches from [Firkser] during a quick stretch, including back-to-back snags during a team period."

Fantasy Impact

Firkser was targeted just over three times per game last year, but that was in the No. 2 role behind Jonnu Smith. The latter, who saw five targets per game, signed with New England this offseason, leaving a clear path for Firkser to rise to No. 1 in 2021. He re-signed with the Titans on a one-year deal and could be in for a big year in a busy, fast-paced offense. It's worth noting that the team's new offensive coordinator is Todd Downing, who was Tennessee's tight ends coach from 2019-20; this certainly can't hurt Firkser's stock. He ranks 26th among tight ends in the latest expert consensus redraft rankings.

Anthony Firkser: Titans' GM Jon Robinson wants blocking to improve in 2021

Tennessee Titans TE Anthony Firkser will need to work on improving his blocking ability in the upcoming 2021 season, per Titans' GM Jon Robinson.

Fantasy Impact

Firkser saw an increased opportunity in the passing game mid-way through last season, absorbing targets from Jonnu Smith while becoming a reliable option for Titans' QB Ryan Tannehill. GM Jon Robinson elaborated on Firkser's role, stating, " He's gotten better. He's a dependable pass catcher and sticks his head in there in the run game. He's a competitive guy and a team guy. I'm proud of his progress. He's got some work to do (in blocking), but he's working his tail off to improve." With Jonnu now in New England, Firkser has a great chance at becoming the TE1 for the Titans in 2021, building on the 39 receptions for 387 yards and a touchdown he totaled in 16 games during the 2020 season.
