Khalif Raymond: Tallies three catches

Raymond recorded three receptions on four targets for 32 yards in Week 6 against the Texans.

Analysis: Raymond stepped up in the absence of Corey Davis (COVID-19) again, though he clearly worked behind Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown. His first catch came in the team's first possession and went for six yards. However, his most notable contribution came early in the second quarter, when he picked up 20 yards on a deep pass from Tannehill that ultimately set up a touchdown for the team. Raymond continues to fill the role of deep threat for the Titans, as he has four receptions of 20 yards or more through five contests this season.

Khalif Raymond: Totals 26 yards

Raymond caught both of his targets for a total of 26 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.

Analysis: Raymond was expected to see increased opportunity with both Corey Davis (COVID-19) and Adam Humphries (COVID-19) absent. However, tight ends Jonnu Smith and Anthony Firkser combined for 12 targets, directing chances away from Raymond. Despite the limited opportunity, Raymond did still produce a 20-yard reception late in the first quarter on a drive that ultimately resulted in a Tennessee touchdown. If both Davis and Humphries remain sidelined for the team's Week 6 matchup against the Texans, Raymond will have another chance to command more volume.

Khalif Raymond: Increased duties in store?

Raymond could operate as the No. 2 wide receiver in Tuesday's game versus the Bills because Corey Davis and Adam Humphries are still on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Kyle Tucker of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Raymond was silent through the first two weeks of the season but exploded in Week 3 versus the Vikings, hauling in all three targets for 118 yards. It looks like A.J. Brown (knee) will be ready Tuesday, but Raymond should be a fine fantasy option, especially if the Bills get out to an early lead and cause the Titans to throw more than usual.

Khalif Raymond: Shows off deep speed

Raymond tallied three receptions for 118 yards in the team's Week 3 win over the Vikings.

Analysis: Raymond delivered the two biggest offensive plays of the day for the Titans, hauling in receptions of 61 and 44 yards. Each set up a score later on the drive, leading directly to 10 points for the team. This was Raymond's first true involvement this season, as he had run just 18 routes entering the Week 3 contest. However, he emerged last season -- particularly in the playoffs -- as a deep threat and flashed the ability to maintain that role with this performance.

Khalif Raymond: Should help fill in for Brown

Raymond is expected to serve as the Titans' No. 3 receiver Sunday in the team's game against the Jaguars, Mike Moraitis of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Raymond played only 22 percent of the offensive snaps and drew two targets in the Titans' season-opening win over the Broncos, but he could be in store for a regular spot in three-receiver formations Sunday with A.J. Brown (knee) having been ruled out for the contest. Tennessee is still expected to lean heavily on a Derrick Henry-led running attack if the game script allows for it, and Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and Jonnu Smith will likely all rank ahead of Raymond as priorities in the passing game. With that in mind, it's difficult to get excited about Raymond's fantasy prospects, even with his improved playing-time outlook.

Khalif Raymond: Remains deep threat

Raymond made an over-the-shoulder catch on a deep ball from Ryan Tannehill during practice Friday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Raymond beat Jonathan Joseph deep and caught a pass from Tannehill in stride for a long gain. Raymond emerged as a deep threat at various points in the 2019 season, with none being bigger than a 45-yard touchdown in the team's divisional-round win over the Ravens. He'll compete to maintain that some role in 2020, and to serve as the team's fourth wide receiver .

Khalif Raymond: Emerges as home run threat

Raymond recorded nine receptions for 170 yards and one touchdown across eight games for the Titans in 2019.

Analysis: Playing for his third team in the past four seasons, Raymond was a marginally used receiver in Tennessee. Though he played just 98 total snaps, he averaged 18.2 yards per reception. His campaign was highlighted by a win-clinching 40-yard touchdown reception in Week 13 against Indianapolis. Raymond will enter the final year of a two-year contract in 2020, though he'll likely battle among the Titans other pass-catchers for a roster spot next season.

Khalif Raymond: Makes one catch count

Raymond brought in his only target for a 45-yard touchdown in the Titans' 28-12 divisional-round win over the Ravens on Saturday.

Analysis: Raymond was on the receiving end of a perfectly thrown pass from Ryan Tannehill early in the second quarter, a scoring grab that gave the Titans a surprising 14-0 lead at the time. The fourth-year speedster flashed some of the same big-play ability in the regular season (three receptions of over 20 yards, including two over 40), so the downfield shot to him wasn't completely out of the norm. Raymond will look to make a similar impact in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus either the Texans or Chiefs.

Khalif Raymond: Officially questionable

Raymond (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's playoff contest in New England, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond has logged back-to-back limited practices, but he doesn't appear to have resumed participating in contract drills. The kick returner and depth wideout will need to fully clear the league's protocol for brain injuries before being cleared to retake the field.

Khalif Raymond: Upgraded for Wednesday's practice

Raymond (concussion) was a limited participant for Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond still resides in the league's concussion protocol, but the fact that he saw limited work at practice is a positive sign for his recovery. He'll likely have to log full practice before being cleared in order to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Patriots.

January 1, 2020 1:16 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Still out Tuesday

Raymond (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond is still experiencing symptoms of a concussion and thusly continues to be held out of practice. He'll likely need to return to practice in full before being cleared to play in Saturday's Wild Card round against New England.

Khalif Raymond: Can't shake injury

Raymond (concussion) won't play in Sunday's season finale against the Texans, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: Raymond didn't log any practice time throughout the week, signaling he still resides in the league's mandated concussion protocol. With the undrafted product out of Holy Cross sidelined, Dion Lewis is expected to continue to handle kick-return duties.

December 27, 2019 1:31 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Misses practice again

Raymond (concussion) is not participating in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Raymond has now missed back-to-back practices, and he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Texans. Dion Lewis will likely handle kick return duties if Raymond is forced to miss any time.

December 26, 2019 12:20 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Still not practicing

Raymond (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimation, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: Raymond will need to fully clear the league's five-step protocol for brain injuries before retaking the field. If he's unable to suit up against the Texans on Sunday, Dion Lewis will likely take over as Tennessee's top kick returner.

December 25, 2019 4:04 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Lands in concussion protocol

Raymond sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Saints, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond has only played more than 20 offensive snaps in one game this year, so his absence won't shake up the team's offensive dynamic. However, the Titans' wideout depth is hurting, as Corey Davis (concussion) and Adam Humphries (ankle) are also on the mend. Raymond will attempt to clear the league's concussion protocol by Sunday's game against the Texans.

December 23, 2019 11:06 AM EST

Khalif Raymond: Totals 32 yards

Raymond (head) hauled in both of his targets for 32 yards but also lost a fumble in the team's Week 16 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Raymond recorded both of his receptions after Corey Davis exited with a potential concussion. His first reception went for nine yards, setting up a seven-yard touchdown to Tajae Sharpe on the following play. Raymond also hauled in a 23-yard catch on the team's next offensive possession, but fumbled after taking a hard hit to the head that left him unconscious. It's unclear what Raymond's status for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Texans will be, though if healthy, he would likely not be any better than the team's third wideout.
