Treylon Burks Week 1 Outlook - Titans at Saints

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

Before the Titans signed DeAndre Hopkins, Burks was ticketed to be Tennessee's No. 1 receiver. It might be best, however, that Burks is playing with a classic No. 1 like Hop and not being shoehorned into a role that may not suit him. Hopkins' presence allows Burks to do what he does best - operate near the line of scrimmage and run routes designed to get the ball into his hands in easy pitch-and-catch situations, setting him up to raise hell after the catch the way he did at the University of Arkansas. Still, Burks isn't a great percentage play in fantasy this week against a Saints defense that ranked fifth in DVOA against the pass a year ago. He's also been dealing with a knee issue, though he's expected to play. Regard Burks as a low-end WR4.
