There was some real excitement surrounding Firkser a few months ago, but then Julio Jones was acquired, bringing that enthusiasm down a level. Still, there's no competition for targets among the tight ends, and with Arthur Smith out of town, it's very likely the Titans throw the ball more in 2021. The issue with thinking Firkser could be a breakout tight end is due to the fact that he's just 6-foot-2 and 246 pounds, which is not very big for a tight end, and it's shown in the red zone, as he's scored just three career touchdowns on 97 targets. There's going to be streaming opportunities when the Titans are playing in a projected shootout, but he's not someone you want to rely on week-in and week-out.
