Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo caught four of his five targets for 45 yards in the Week 12 win over the Carolina Panthers. The second-year tight end set his new season-high in receiving yards on Sunday. He was a popular breakout pick this offseason, but the Titans' offensive struggles combined with his drop issues have kept him off the fantasy radar. Although this performance was promising, he remains a non-viable fantasy option until proven otherwise.

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo remains off the fantasy radar heading into Week 12. The Panthers have been a top-ten defense against fantasy tight ends, and Okonkwo has failed to make a fantasy impact this season. Given the struggles of the Titans' offense, DeAndre Hopkins is the only pass-catcher on their team to consider starting this week.

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo has earned 28 targets in his last five games, but his targets have only resulted in 17 receptions for 129 yards and no touchdowns. That said, he's not worth starting in 12-team leagues, even in a matchup with a Jacksonville Jaguars team that has allowed the 12th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends. Will Levis looked like he'd bring life into the Titans' offense after his fantastic, four-touchdown debut, but he has failed to find the end zone in two straight weeks. Okonkwo should be dropped in all non-tight end premium leagues.

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo has seen 22 targets over his last four games, bringing some life into his fantasy football outlook. However, he is still not worth starting in any format given his struggles in the first half of the season. The second-year pass-catcher has hauled in just 24 passes for 173 yards and no touchdown through nine weeks. His Week 10 opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, gave up big fantasy days to Dalton Kincaid and Dalton Schultz over the last two weeks but were strong against the position prior to Week 8. If Will Levis continues to impress, Okonkwo could enter the fantasy radar, but he remains off of it for now.

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo did nothing to stand out in the 20-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night in Week 9. Okonkwo caught three of his four targets in the game for 28 yards. Despite playing over 70 percent of the offensive snaps on the evening, the 24-year-old continued to disappoint, even with rookie Will Levis looking rather impressive in just his second career start in a hostile environment. Okonkwo should have more fantasy upside moving forward as long as Ryan Tannehill (ankle) remains out, but fantasy managers are going to need to see more to warrant plucking him off the waiver wire. He has yet to find the end zone in his second NFL season and has 24 receptions for 173 yards on his 35 targets through eight games.
Nov 3, 2023 12:18 PM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo has seen 19 targets in his last three contests, putting him back on the fantasy radar in deep leagues. Especially since Will Levis brought life to the Titans' passing offense in Week 8 with four passing touchdowns, Okonkwo could have value moving forward. However, a Week 9 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers is not a favorable one for tight ends. Mike Tomlin's stop unit has surrendered the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position this season. Even if DeAndre Hopkins (toe) doesn't play, Okonkwo is too risky to trust in this Thursday night AFC contest.

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo earned nine targets last week against the Indianapolis Colts, but he caught just five of them for 33 yards. He drew some interest on the waiver wire after the nine-target game, but he'll face a tough matchup with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday morning in Week 6. Baltimore has allowed the fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season. Okonkwo ranks first in drops among tight ends (three) and has failed to make splash plays like he did with a limited role last season. Considering all factors, he's not worth rolling the dice on in fantasy lineups.
Oct 12, 2023 2:27 PM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo has hauled in just 10 passes on 13 targets for 73 yards this season. Needless to say, that isn't fantasy-viable production over a four-game stretch, so he should not be trusted in fantasy lineups until further notice. The second-year tight end failed to deliver last week in the absence of Treylon Burks (knee), so even if Burks misses Week 5, there are better streaming options available.
Oct 5, 2023 2:38 PM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo has brought in just seven passes for 42 yards through his first three games of 2023. He ranks 30th among all tight ends in targets (10) and has failed to make an impact. This was always a concern after the team added DeAndre Hopkins, and it is becoming a reality. Even though the Cincinnati Bengals have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to tight ends thus far, the second-year player out of Maryland should not be on the fantasy radar except in the deepest of tight end premium leagues. The Tennessee offense could be embarrassed once again in Week 4.
Sep 28, 2023 1:21 PM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo has caught just four passes for 35 yards through two weeks of the 2023 NFL season. Heading into Week 3, he ranks tied for fifth in targets among all Titans players with six. Now, he'll head into a tough matchup with the Cleveland Browns, who have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to tight ends up to this point. Unless Okonkwo finds the end zone in Cleveland, it'll be a difficult road to finding fantasy production. So far, the addition of All-Pro wideout DeAndre Hopkins has forced Okonkwo into fantasy irrelevance. That will likely continue in this AFC bout on Sunday.

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo caught all four of his targets for 35 yards in the Week 2 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Tennessee's passing offense looked much improved in Week 2, but Okonkwo still didn't pay off as a fantasy tight end. Ultimately, with Derrick Henry, DeAndre Hopkins, and Treylon Burks in the same offense, Okonkwo is unlikely to see the target volume he needs to post a TE1 season. He's likely a touchdown-or-bust option moving forward.
Sep 18, 2023 9:08 AM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo failed to catch a pass against the New Orleans Saints last week. The Week 1 results clearly make him a risky fantasy option, but if DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) does not play against the Los Angeles Chargers, Okonkwo could be worth rolling the dice on. His competition for targets would consist of Treylon Burks, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, and Chris Moore, meaning he should have opportunities to score fantasy points. If Hopkins plays. Okonkwo should probably remain on the bench in fantasy lineups.
Sep 15, 2023 4:58 PM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo failed to catch either of his two targets in the 16-15 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. The second-year tight end was wide open on a double pass play, but quarterback Ryan Tannehill overthrew him. After seeing Okonkwo notch just two targets, he cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups until further notice. DeAndre Hopkins looks like the only Tennessee pass catcher to start in fantasy football against the Los Angeles Chargers next week.
Sep 10, 2023 4:49 PM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo exceeded expectations as a rookie, catching 46 passes for 450 yards and three touchdowns. However, he posted those numbers with rookie Treylon Burks and aging veterans Robert Woods and Austin Hooper as his primary target competition. In 2023, DeAndre Hopkins should be the team's target hog, lowering Okonkwo's floor. In Week 1, he faces a New Orleans Saints team that allowed the fewest fantasy points to tight ends last season. Ultimately, Okonkwo is unlikely to post fantasy-relevant numbers in the season-opener unless he catches a touchdown.
Sep 8, 2023 10:51 AM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo (undisclosed) left Tuesday's practice early. There is no further information on his status just yet, so it will be worth monitoring moving forward. Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (knee) and Kyle Philips (knee) are both banged up, so losing Okonkwo for any period of time would make the Titans' pass-catching group ultra-thin behind DeAndre Hopkins. Assuming Okonkwo is fine, he carries a low-end fantasy TE2 outlook into 2023 after the arrival of Hopkins. That said, he could continue to be efficient and exceed expectations if Tennessee's offense has a bounce-back year.
Aug 22, 2023 2:27 PM EST
Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo caught one of his three targets for 19 yards in the 24-16 preseason win over the Minnesota Vikings. Okonkwo was a preseason sleeper all offseason, but the arrival of DeAndre Hopkins mightily reduced his projected receiving volume. That said, the Titans' offense should have more touchdown upside, and hopefully, Okonkwo can remain efficient to stay on the fantasy football radar. If Treylon Burks (knee) misses any regular season action, Okonkwo will be an interesting play at tight end early in the 2023 campaign.
