2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Titans' depth chart at tight end was thinned this offseason with the departure of Delanie Walker. That could give Firkser the opportunity to step into a bigger receiving role, as he'll presumably take over as the Titans' second target at the position behind Jonnu Smith. Given that the Titans' had two tight ends on the field for roughly 45 percent of offensive plays last season, Firkser could be in line for a jump in production in his third season. Still, after combining for 33 receptions across the last two campaigns, Firkser will need a significant increase in targets to produce at a notable level. Read Past Outlooks

Earns four targets
TETennessee Titans
September 20, 2020
Firkser tallied four receptions on four targets for 45 yards in the Titans' Week 2 win over the Jaguars.
ANALYSIS
Firkser finished third on the day with four receptions in the absence of A.J. Brown (knee). Three of his receptions were chunk gains, as he recorded catches of 14, 10 and 16 yards. While Firkser splits playing time evenly with MyCole Pruitt in the backup tight end role, Firkser is more heavily utilized as a receiver of the pair. He could see an increase in targets in Week 3 against the Vikings if Brown remains sidelined.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Firkser used a strong preseason in which he finished second on the team with 10 receptions and 108 yards to make an active 53-man roster out of training camp in 2018. However, he was shuttled back and forth to the practice squad before hauling in his first career pass in Week 6. Firkser went on to enjoy a relatively productive stretch from Weeks 11-13 when he posted no fewer 42 yards in any contest. Looking forward, Firkser will likely be battling for a roster spot with Mycole Pruitt and Cole Wick, and if he makes the team, he'll slot in behind both Jonnu Smith and Delanie Walker on the tight end depth chart.
Firkser didn't suit up in an NFL game for his first two seasons in the league. He signed with the Titans in May and will shift from tight end to the fullback position. If he can shake off the learning curve, he could see a good chunk of offensive snaps, although little will surface in the fantasy realm.
