Fantasy Impact: Clowney appeared in eight games for the Titans in 2020. He was put on IR and had meniscus surgery thus ending his season. Clowney didn't have any sacks, had 14 tackles and forced one fumble. The 28-year old will look to bounce back in 2021.

Desmond King is signing with the Texans on a one-year, $3.5 million deal, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact: King was Pro Football Focus' 40th-ranked cornerback last season. He allowed less than 50 yards in coverage in all but three of a possible 15 games with the Titans and Chargers. The latter traded him to the former midseason.

Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Titans have re-signed LB Jayon Brown to a one-year, $5.25M deal. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown, 26-years old, will remain with the Titans for 2021 following his one-year, $5.25M deal. In Week 11 of 2020, Brown fractured and dislocated his elbow causing him to miss the remainder of the season. Prior to his injury Brown had 76 total tackles and one sack. Ultimately, Brown is betting on himself by returning to Tennessee in an effort to rebuild his value on the open market.

Per Paul Kuharsky, the Titans have re-signed TE Anthony Firkser to a one-year deal. (Source: Paul Kuharsky on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The details of Firkser's one-year contract have yet to come out, but this was a move that made too much sense especially after the Titans lost Jonnu Smith in free agency. In 2020, Firkser had 39 catches for 387 yards and 1 TD. With Smith now gone Firsker should be the biggest immediate beneficiary at the TE position for Tennessee. Expect an uptick on his numbers across the board and don't be surprised if come fantasy drafts Firkser is a trendy dark horse candidate at the TE position.

The Titans have released cornerback Adoree' Jackson. Releasing the former first-round pick creates $10.244 million in cap space for Tennessee. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson, 25, appeared in 43 games from 2017 to 2019. However, his status took a hit in 2020 as a knee injury held him out until Week 15. Over 46 career games (41 starts), he has two interceptions, 33 passes defended, and 200 tackles. He also has some experience on special teams, returning 53 punts (464 yards) and 27 kickoffs (601 yards) in his first three years as a pro.

The Titans and tight end Geoff Swaim have agreed to terms on a one-year deal to keep the tight end in Tennessee, according to multiple reports. (Source: Terry McCormick on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Swaim is one of those players who is a better NFL player than he is an asset in fantasy. In 2020, Swaim caught nine of his 12 targets for 83 yards and one touchdown. There is an opening at the position with fellow tight end Jonnu Smith leaving to sign with the New England Patriots in free agency, but it's likely the Titans will look elsewhere to improve the position while keeping Swaim in his role as a blocker.

According to sources, Former Titans’ WR Corey Davis will sign a three-year, $37.5M deal with the New York Jets. He'll reportedly get $27 million guaranteed. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Talk about a pay-day. Davis lands with the Jets and will likely become their WR1 immediately. Jamison Crowder is a UFA, and Denzel Mims didn't do much in his rookie campaign to compete with Davis. If the Jets can make a move for an elite QB like Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson, lookout. Davis rebounded for his best season to date in 2020, posting 65 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns. He should be a target for fantasy managers next season as the leading candidate to soak up targets for the Jets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that the Patriots are reportedly signing free-agent TE Jonnu Smith to a 4-year, $50M contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a great landing for Smith from a fantasy standpoint. The Patriots have one of the weakest WR cores in the league, and Smith's athleticism makes him a matchup nightmare. The recently re-signed Cam Newton has shown a tendency to favor the TE in the past (Greg Olsen), and at this time, Smith is the number one option on that offense. He should be locked in as a TE1 for the 2021 season. The deal reportedly will include $31.25M fully guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact: His release saves $3.9 million in cap space as teams continue to navigate the reduced salary cap. Vaccaro is unlikely to net a big payday in free agency next week.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Titans are releasing veteran cornerback Malcolm Butler. (Source: Ian Rapoport of NFL Network)

Fantasy Impact: The release of Butler comes at no surprise at he was carrying a $10 million cap hit for 2021. The veteran CB had 100 tackles and four interceptions across 16 games last season.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Isaiah Wilson has been traded to the Dolphins in exchange for swapping picks. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wilson expressed his disdain for the Titans this off-season and asked for a trade. The Titans found a suitor and Wilson will now protect Tua Tagovailoa in Miami. The Titans drafted Wilson with their first-round pick in 2020.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Titans are not tendering WR/returner Kalif Raymond. (Source: Ian Rapoport of NFL Network)

Fantasy Impact: With Raymond's contract not being tendered, the Titans will have to find themselves a new kick returner for this season. The veteran return man was a top 10 returner last season.

The Titans are in agreement on a one-year deal with fullback Khari Blasingame, who was scheduled to be an exclusive rights free agent next month. (Source: Tennessee Titans on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The former Vanderbilt product has appeared in 21 games over the last two seasons, including 15 in 2020. He has yet to register a rushing attempt, but he does own eight receptions for 93 yards and four first down conversions. At 6-foot-3 and 233 pounds, Blasingame will stay in Tennessee and continue to serve as a blocker for the almighty Derrick Henry.

Former Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries is being released, reportedly saving $4.47 million for the organization heading into the 2021 season. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Humphries caught 23 receptions for 228 yards and two touchdowns across just seven games for the Titans in 2020. He is still a young receiver (27) and flashed his upside back in 2018 when he went for 76/816/5 as a receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Concussions plagued Humphries in 2020 but he should find a team in free agency willing to take a chance on his 2018 potential, barring any further injury setbacks.

Titans star WR A.J. Brown said that he had surgery on both of his knees Tuesday. (Source: Terry McCormick on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Brown also said he should have been out for the season after Week 2, but made the Pro Bowl. The 23-year-old WR battled through knee injuries and still produced for fantasy managers in 2020. He hauled in 70 catches on 106 targets for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns across 14 games. Brown is expected to be ready for the 2021 season and currently sixth among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.

Stephen Gostkowski went 2-for-2 in field goal attempts and made his only extra-point try in a playoff matchup on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Ravens by a 20-13 score.

Fantasy Impact: Gostkowski has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list during the week and was able to play on Sunday. The veteran kicker had an up and down year but should be back for another season with the Titans.

Cam Batson caught his only target for six yards in a playoff matchup on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Ravens by a 20-13 score.

Fantasy Impact: Batson started the year on special teams and when he was promoted he spent most of the time on special teams. Look for the 25-year-old receiver to stay in the same role in 2021.

Category: Game Recaps

Darrynton Evans carried one time for one yard in a playoff matchup on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Ravens by a 20-13 score.

Fantasy Impact: Evans rarely sees the field on offense with Derrick Henry holding a near-monopoly on the touches out of Tennessee's backfield. The rookie running back will once again be in a backup role in 2021 and will unlikely have any fantasy value.

Derrick Henry carried the ball 18 times for 40 yards in the team's wild-card round loss to the Ravens. He added three receptions for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens dominated the line of scrimmage and was able to hold Henry to his lowest yardage total of the season. The 27-year-old running back will remain under contract with the Titans in 2021 and will be a top pick in most fantasy drafts.

Ryan Tannehill completed 18 of 26 passes for 165 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a wild card round loss to the Ravens. He added two rushes for six yards.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens were able to contain the Titans and totally shut down the run and Tannehill could not make the difference and threw a costly interception at the end of the game. The veteran quarterback overall had a great season and should be back in Tennessee as the starter next season.
