Reserve wide receiver and kick returner Michael Campanaro's first season with the Titans has ended before it ever began. The Titans officially removed Rishard Matthews from the PUP list and sent Campanaro to season-ending IR with an undisclosed injury that has kept the free agent addition out of the entire preseason.
Campanaro has been a solid return specialist but offers very little as a receiver. He caught a career-high 19 balls for the Ravens last season but averaged just 9.1 yards-per-catch. Campanaro's fantasy value is limited to leagues that reward return yardage but he won't be a factor anywhere in 2018.
Micheal Campanaro passed his physical and was activated off the non-football illness list Tuesday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.
Campanaro caught 19 passes in 13 games last season for the Ravens. The 25-year-old receiver will look to make the Titan roster this season and if he makes the team will be used more in a special teams role and will not be fantasy relevant.
The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a 1-year deal with former Baltimore Ravens WR/PR Michael Campanaro. A 2014 seventh-rounder out of Wake Forest, Campanaro played in just 24 games for the Ravens, totaling 31 receptions in four seasons.
Campanaro played 263 offensive snaps (24.2%) for the Ravens last season and recorded a career-best 19 receptions and 173 yards with one touchdown. He added another score on a punt return. Listed at 5-foot-9, 191-pounds, Campanaro is undersized and will likely compete for snaps out of the slot with Taywan Taylor and has a chance at carving out a special teams role. Campanaro won't be fantasy relevant unless he can somehow win the WR3 job in camp.
Michael Campanaro completed four of six targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 26 - 9 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He completed two kick returns totaling 46 yards.
Campanaro alternated with Alex Collins as punt returner with Collins gaining more yardage. Campanaro is an injury-prone receiver that has not played a complete season due to injury. Wallace and Maclin are better starters.
Michael Campanaro caught one of two targets for three yards and added one rushing attempt for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.
It was a brutal showing for the Ravens offense, but Campanaro isn't involved enough anyway to warrant fantasy attention. He should be on waivers in all leagues.
