Titans TE Anthony Firkser (knee, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 2. The late-week downgrade is worrisome. Geoff Swaim and MyCole Pruitt would pick up the slack.
As he enters his third season with the Tennessee Titans, Anthony Firkser is set for a much bigger role this year.
Firkser, who had 39 receptions a year ago in a role mostly as a third-down option, is expected to become the Titans’ primary receiving tight end with the departure of Jonnu Smith to New England as a free agent.
According to a lot of reports, Firkser has had a great offseason. While he should see an increase in targets, the addition of Julio Jones keeps Firkser's ranking in check as he sits at 21st on our list. The story said Firkser is not to be overlooked in the offense, though, and he should benefit greatly from favorable matchups and should build on last year’s production with increased playing time. He'll be available later in drafts.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. It looks like Smith may be able to return this week which will downgrade Anthony Firkser in the rankings.
