Staying with Titans

The Titans have agreed to a one-year deal with Swaim, John Glennon of reports.

Analysis: The 28-year-old is coming off a 2021 season in which he recorded 31 catches (on 40 targets) for 210 yards and three TDs in 16 games. Swaim's fantasy upside this coming season hinges on what other moves the Titans make at tight end this offseason, given that Anthony Firkser and MyCole Pruitt are both eligible for free agency.

Ends season quietly

Swaim recorded one reception on one target for two yards in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Swaim continued to make minimal impact on the Titans' offense, as he failed to surpass 10 receiving yards for the fourth consecutive game. While he recorded at least three receptions in seven of his 16 contests, he still managed only 210 yards on 31 catches for the campaign. Meanwhile, the recent re-emergence of Anthony Firkser likely means that Swaim will only take a further step back during the Titans' playoff run. Once the season concludes, Swaim will be a free agent, though he could be a fit to return to Tennessee on a short contract.

Scores short touchdown

Swaim recorded three receptions on three targets for nine yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-3 win over Miami.

Analysis: Swaim recorded three catches for the third time in his last four games. Despite that decent volume, he's surpassed 10 yards only once in that span. Swaim did manage to salvage his performance on Sunday with a one-yard touchdown to open the scoring in the victory. Even so, it was only his third touchdown catch of the season heading into a Week 18 matchup at Houston.

Tallies three catches

Swaim recorded three receptions on three targets for 10 yards in Thursday's 20-17 win over San Francisco.

Analysis: Swaim continued to occupy the top tight end role in Tennessee, and he was on the field for 63 percent of offensive snaps. He also finished tied for second on the team with three targets, though that turned into very little production as he was limited only to short areas of the field. Swaim has recorded at least three receptions in five of his last seven games, though he has managed to top 30 receiving yards in that span only once.

Limited to one catch

Swaim recorded one catch on two targets for five yards in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Swaim led Tennessee's tight ends with 59 (74 percent) of offensive snaps. However, he wasn't utilized heavily in the passing game and had to split targets with both Anthony Firkser and MyCole Pruitt. Swaim has been limited to only one catch in three of his last four games.

Racks up 45 yards

Swaim recorded three receptions on four targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 20-0 win over Jacksonville.

Analysis: Swaim finished third on the team with only four targets, but he managed to lead all Titans receivers in yardage. He also logged the team's longest gain of the day -- a 24-yard reception partway through the third quarter -- that helped him top 30 receiving yards for the first time this season. Despite a relatively consistent role in Tennessee's offense across his last five games, Swaim is dependent on touchdowns to rack up viable fantasy production.

Dec 12, 2021 9:54 PM EST

One catch in return

Swaim recorded one reception on one target for eight yards in Sunday's 36-13 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Swaim returned from a one-game absence caused by a concussion. He was on the field for 73 percent of the team's offensive snaps but still only saw one target. Prior to missing the team's Week 11 contest, Swaim had recorded four receptions in three consecutive contests so he could see an uptick in targets when the team retakes the field in Week 14 against Jacksonville.

Cleared for Week 12

Swaim (concussion) is listed as active Week 12 against New England.

Analysis: Swaim returned as a full participant in practice Friday, setting the stage for him to gain clearance in Week 12. The tight end hasn't typically been a major part of the Tennessee game plan this season, though Swaim has hauled in exactly four receptions in each of the past three weeks with the receiving corps badly shorthanded. He could be in to see a few more targets than usual this week with A.J. Brown (chest), Julio Jones (hamstring) and Marcus Johnson (hamstring) all on currently residing on injured reserve.

Nov 28, 2021 8:33 AM EST

Questionable after full practice

Swaim (concussion) was a full practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in New England, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Swaim was a full participant Wednesday and Friday, sandwiched around non-participation Thursday. That's unusual, but not necessarily bad, and he'll now need clearance from a team physician and independent neurological consultant in order to play this Sunday. The Titans can use all the help they can get with their WR group devastated by injuries, and Swaim should see plenty of snaps and at least a few targets if he avoids the inactive list.

Nov 26, 2021 1:28 PM EST

Questionable after limited practice

Swaim (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against New England after logging a limited practice Friday.

Analysis: Swaim's practice participation has been all over the map this week, as he practiced fully Wednesday before sitting out entirely Thursday, and he split the difference with Friday's limited session. He'll likely lead Tennessee's tight ends in playing time if he suits up, but should Swaim sit, MyCole Pruitt and Anthony Firkser would continue to see extra snaps, with the latter considered the more profound pass-catcher.

Nov 26, 2021 1:15 PM EST

Listed as non-participant

Swaim (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's injury report, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Swaim fully participated in Wednesday's practice but took a step back Thursday. The 28-year-old's status for Sunday's game against the Patriots could come into focus based on his participation in practice Friday. If he's unavailable for a second straight week, MyCole Pruitt and Anthony Firkser should continue to see additional work for the Titans.

Nov 25, 2021 2:09 PM EST

Logs full practice

Swaim (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Swaim missed this past Sunday's game against the Texans, but barring any setbacks, he's in line to return to action this weekend against the Patriots. Through 10 games, the tight end has posted modest fantasy numbers, however, averaging 1.9 catches (on a total of 26 targets) for 13.1 yards with two TDs in that span.

Nov 24, 2021 3:27 PM EST

Ruled out for Week 11

Swaim (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Swaim was added to the Titans' injury report Thursday with the head injury, an indication that he likely was diagnosed with the concussion following Wednesday's practice. Tennessee evidently determined he hadn't made enough progress through the NFL's five-step concussion protocol to suit up Sunday, so he'll be sidelined for the first time all season Week 11. Swaim's absence should pave the way for MyCole Pruitt and Anthony Firkser to split work at tight end, with the latter player being the superior pass-catching option of the two.

Nov 19, 2021 11:13 AM EST

Sits out practice with concussion

Swaim (concussion) didn't practice Thursday, John Glennon of Sports Illustrated reports.

Analysis: Swaim wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, so he likely suffered the concussion in Wednesday's practice. Friday's injury designation will help determine Swaim's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Texans, but his absence Thursday suggests he's in jeopardy of sitting out. If Swaim can't go, MyCole Pruitt and Anthony Firkser would take on larger roles at tight end for the Titans.

Nov 18, 2021 1:28 PM EST

Touchdown streak ends

Swaim recorded four receptions on five targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Saints.

Analysis: Swaim continued to serve as the team's top pass-catching tight end and recorded at least four catches for the third consecutive game. He worked primarily in the short areas of the field, but he did manage one catch that went for a 16-yard gain. While Swaim's two-game touchdown streak ended with this performance, he has earned a consistent role in the Titans' passing attack.

Nov 14, 2021 10:10 PM EST

Scores again in win

Swaim caught all four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Swaim turned in another solid fantasy performance, hitting pay dirt for the second consecutive game. The veteran tight end had just 53 total yards and no touchdowns over the seven contests prior to his recent hot streak, despite seeing relatively the same playing time. That said, the Titans are going to be without Derrick Henry (foot) for the foreseeable future, and he pretty much hoarded all of the the Titans' goal-line touches, so perhaps Swaim has carved out a niche as a red-zone threat.

Nov 7, 2021 9:55 PM EST

First TD of season

Swaim had four receptions (five targets) for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Ryan Tannehill dialed up his tight end near the goal line on a play-action pass for the veteran's first touchdown of the season. Swaim has been logging starter's snaps on offense, but this was just his eighth reception on the year. The 27-year-old's value lies in his ability to block in front of Derrick Henry, so fantasy managers can dismiss this rare trip to the end zone.

Oct 31, 2021 2:40 PM EST

Records one reception

Swaim recorded one reception on one target for eight yards in Sunday's 27-3 win over Kansas City.

Analysis: Swaim was one of three Tennessee tight ends to record a catch Sunday and the effort marked his second consecutive game with one receptions. Through seven games this season, Swaim has seven receptions for 53 yards.

Oct 24, 2021 10:20 PM EST

Little involvement again

Swaim recorded one reception on one target for eight yards in Monday's 34-31 win over Buffalo.

Analysis: Swaim continues to play well over half of the offensive snaps for Tennessee, though he now has three consecutive games with only one target. He is primarily on the field due to his blocking, in turn limiting the amount of pass volume he will see.

Oct 19, 2021 10:03 PM EST

Only one target

Swaim recorded one target and no catches Sunday against the Jets.

Analysis: Swaim was on the field for 32 percent of the team's offensive snaps, second on the team behind Anthony Firkser. However, as has been typical, he primary served as a blocker. In the two games that Firkser has been on the field this season, Swaim has combined to record only two targets and no receptions.
