Monitor Treylon Burks’ health: Burks took a helmet-to-helmet hit while scoring a touchdown late in the first quarter. He was able to walk off the field after staying down on the turf for a little while and was eventually ruled out with a concussion.

  • His 25-yard touchdown grab was his only catch of the game.
  • The Titans were using Burks the same way they had in recent weeks. He was consistently on the field in 11 personnel while rarely on the field in 12 personnel.
  • Cody Hollister has been the fourth wide receiver for Tennessee most of the season and would have seen a larger role Sunday if he was healthy. Hollister was inactive due to a neck injury.
  • C.J. Board had spent the 2022 season on three different practice squads. He’s been brought to the Titans' active roster in recent weeks, and he became their third wide receiver.
  • All other Tennessee wide receivers combined for 16 receiving yards through the rest of the game.
  • Burks’ one favorable matchup remaining on the schedule is next week against the Jaguars if he’s able to play. The three teams Tennessee faces during the fantasy playoffs are above average at preventing fantasy points to wide receivers.
  • It would be OK to drop Burks if it doesn’t seem like he will play this coming week.
  • None of the Titans starters should be considered off the waiver wire despite the favorable matchup next week.

The rise of Chigoziem Okonkwo: The Titans rookie tight end gained 68 receiving yards, which was more than twice as many yards as any other Tennessee receiver.

  • He’s gained at least 30 receiving yards in each of the past five games after just 52 yards in the first eight weeks.
  • He’s consistently been making one big play a game. This week, it was a 41-yard catch. His 10.4 yards after the catch per catch are by far the most for a tight end with 10 or more targets this season. 
  • His 2.75 yards per route run are also by far the most for tight ends.
  • This has led to an increase in offensive snaps, particularly in 12 personnel. He had been playing roughly half of the snaps in that group in the previous four weeks, but he played 23-of-26 snaps there today.
  • Those snaps largely came at the expense of Geoff Swaim, who split time with Austin Hooper.
  • He played only 4-of-22 snaps in 11 personnel.
  • It will be hard to trust him in fantasy if he’s not playing in clear passing situations, but he’s definitely a name to keep an eye on for the rest of the season and is an exciting dynasty prospect.
  • He and Kevin Rader are the only Titans tight ends under contract for 2023.

Don’t add Jack Stoll: The Eagles tight end finished third on the team in receiving yards (41).

  • This was a career high in both receiving yards and receptions (three).
  • He has consistently been asked to stay in and pass block more than Dallas Goedert. He’s had five games with three or more pass blocks, including today, compared to one by Goedert.
  • Goedert is eligible to return in Week 15 and is expected to be ready to go by that point. This gives Stoll just one more week as a starter in Philadelphia.
  • The Eagles have a favorable matchup against the Giants next week, but that probably won’t be enough to trust putting Stoll in a fantasy starting lineup.


Table Notes

Snaps include plays called back due to penalties, including offensive holding or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have these plays removed.

Targets may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely discrepancy would be from a clear thrown-away pass, where the NFL may give the target to the nearest receiver, while this data will not.

Carries are only on designed plays. Quarterback scrambles won’t count for the total number of carries in the game.
