Titans Beat: Tajae Sharpe passes Dorial Green-Beckham on the depth chart

ESPN - [Full Article]

Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky:

I’ve been wary of expecting too much of a second-year jump from Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham, who’s been passed on the split ends depth chart for now by fifth-round rookie Tajae Sharpe.

New receivers coach Bob Bratkowski said the time off for Green-Beckham is still a factor in his game.

“It’s still there, it’s going to be there,” Bratkowski said. “You can’t ever replace the experienced missed. Is it going to get better? Yes. But that gap, that missing time of the experience missed, is always going to be a part of it.

“Maybe three years from now, it’ll be a moot point. I still think right now in just playing the game, there are things that he missed. If you take Jerry Rice or any top receiver or actually any player, and they had that kind of a gap, it has an effect on them. It takes time.”

Fantasy Impact: 

DGB has a solid FP/T (1.18, #35) and is slated for a larger target share in his sophomore season. He averaged 5.9 T/G over his final nine games and played at a 44-791-3.5 pace in that span. Negative news at this point in the offseason usually isn't a good sign for the fall, but Green-Beckham still has time to earn a starting job.
