From a real-world perspective, I like this signing for the Titans, who lost Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and Jonnu Smith in free agency. Reynolds started the season sharing time with rookie Van Jefferson, but took over the WR3 role for the Rams in Week 3, his snaps dipping below 70% just once from Week 3 to Week 12. In that span, he averaged 3.9 catches for 49 yards and 0.22 touchdowns on 6.3 targets per game, which is a 62-794-3.5 pace (on 101 targets). Per PFF, his yards per route run (YPRR) has been remarkably consistent over the last three seasons, never higher than 1.26 YPRR and never lower than 1.23 YPRR. For reference, Davis posted 1.48 YPRR in 2019 before his breakout season (2.58 YPRR) last year. With OC Arthur Smith moving on to lead the Falcons, it remains to be seen if the Titans stay as run-heavy under new OC Todd Downing as they have been, but Derrick Henry's presence on the roster is a strong indicator that they will. Reynolds could post Davis-type numbers (65-984-5) if he sees 100+ targets. (Davis saw 92 targets in 2020.)
LAR WR Josh Reynolds - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Arizona
Reynolds led the team in receiving last week against the Seattle Seahawks as he caught 6-of-10 targets for 65 yards. With Cooper Kupp to miss the week’s game as he was placed in the COVID/reserved list, Reynolds will step into the No.2 receiver role, however it comes on a week with John Wolford will be starting for the injured Jared Goff. Reynolds cannot be trusted as anything more than a low-end WR3 this week.
