Treylon Burks Contributing On Special Teams

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks was working as a gunner on the punt team on Tuesday, and he might need to carve out a role on special teams to ensure he's on the team's active roster in 2024. When asked if Burks will have to contribute on special teams, head coach Brian Callahan said, "Absolutely, he's going to have to contribute. You only get so many hats on game day, and if he's one of those guys on game day, we're going to have to find a place for him." This is far from a great sign for dynasty fantasy managers holding Burks on rosters, and the report will likely drop his 2024 fantasy value even further. If he fails to make an impact on special teams, he could find himself as a healthy scratch during the regular season. On the flip side, the team being willing to put him on special teams indicates he's likely stuck in the WR4 role behind DeAndre Hopkins, Calvin Ridley, and Tyler Boyd. Even if one of those players gets injured, his fantasy floor would be low, and his ceiling would be limited based on his production through his first 22 NFL games (665 yards).

Titans Not Giving Up On Treylon Burks

Despite the Tennessee Titans signing veteran wide receiver Tyler Boyd this week, head coach Brian Callahan and the organization still have hope for third-year wideout Treylon Burks. "We've made very clear to Treylon that the signing of Tyler is not about him. It's about helping our team get better, adding better players to our team, making us a competitive football team," Callahan said. "What he's done and how he's worked has been great, and I'm anticipating him still being able to play a good role for us." While the Boyd signing almost surely pushes Burks to the WR4 role and destroys any 2024 fantasy football value he had, it sounds like the team is not going to trade him this offseason as many have speculated. Burks was a promising prospect coming out of Arkansas, but he's totaled just 665 receiving yards and one touchdown through his first two NFL seasons. He might be worth holding in deep dynasty leagues, but it'd be surprising if he's on the fantasy radar in redraft formats.

Treylon Burks A Trade Candidate?

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks was recently listed as a potential trade candidate by NFL insider Ari Meirov, and after the team signed Tyler Boyd on Tuesday, it could be more likely. The 2022 first-round pick has hauled in just 49 passes for 665 yards and one touchdown in 22 games over the last two seasons. Former Titans general manager Jon Robinson traded A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for the pick that Burks was selected with, along with a third-round pick. Needless to say, the trade has not aged well. Current general manager Ran Carthon and head coach Brian Callahan were not with the organization when Burks was picked, so a change of scenery could be in order. With DeAndre Hopkins, Calvin Ridley, and Boyd projected to start in three-wide sets, Burks appears to be the odd man out. If he's dealt, it will likely be in exchange for a late-round pick in the 2025 or 2026 NFL Draft.

Treylon Burks Has To Earn It In 2024

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks, the team's first-round pick in 2022, has been a big disappointment in his first two NFL seasons and is heading into a critical third year with Tennessee in 2024. The 24-year-old has missed a lot of time due to injuries and just hasn't produced when he's been on the field. Now that Calvin Ridley is in town, he's set to be the No. 3 receiver behind Ridley and DeAndre Hopkins. "Treylon's potential is very high. First-round pick, we see all the talent. But he's going to get what he earns," offensive coordinator Nick Holz said. New head coach Brian Callahan also didn't mention Burks' name when discussing options for the slot. Burks' fantasy stock is obviously way down, and even if he stays healthy in 2024, he could struggle to produce consistently as the No. 3 with a young quarterback running the offense.

Treylon Burks Nowhere Near Fantasy Radar In Season Finale

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks has hauled in just 16 of his 30 targets for 221 yards and no touchdowns in 10 games this season. He has continued to disappoint throughout his sophomore season, keeping him firmly off the fantasy radar against the Jacksonville Jaguars -- even in deep leagues. The Titans are in rebuild mode, so look for the team to add target competition behind DeAndre Hopkins next season. Burks has a bleak future outlook, but since he was a former first-round pick, he'll have at least a minuscule amount of fantasy intrigue next year.

Treylon Burks Posts 11 Yards In Week 17 Loss

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks continued to do very little in Sunday's 26-3 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 17. Burks finished the contest with two catches on his three targets for 11 yards in a game in which rookie quarterback Will Levis (foot) was injured early and never returned. The only good news for Burks was that he played 83 percent of the offensive snaps, which was his most since the season opener. Since returning from a concussion that kept him out from Weeks 10-12, the 23-year-old former first-rounder has just eight receptions on 12 targets for 99 yards and no touchdowns. In this lackluster offense, Burks cannot be trusted in starting fantasy lineups. In 10 games total in his second NFL season, he has 16 catches for 221 yards and no TDs on 30 targets. Burks is quickly becoming a first-round bust in Tennessee.

Treylon Burks Not Worth Consideration In Week 17 Lineups

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks has secured just 14 of his 27 targets for 210 yards and no touchdowns in nine games this year. Although he showed signs of life with 62 receiving yards in Week 15 against the Houston Texans, he remains off the fantasy radar in the Week 17 rematch. The former first-round pick has struggled through a ton of injuries, and he hasn't been productive when active. His fantasy outlook is as bleak as ever, so there's no need to consider him in lineups during the fantasy football championship.

Treylon Burks Out Sick Again

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (illness) missed a second straight day of practice on Thursday due to an illness. Meanwhile, fellow receiver Kyle Philips (hamstring) returned to a limited practice after sitting out Wednesday's session. Burks is going to need to return to the practice field on Friday to avoid being ruled out for the Week 16 game on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. The second-year wideout has already missed six games due to injury in 2023 and isn't really on the fantasy radar to begin with in Tennessee's lackluster offense. In the last two weeks, he's caught only four passes for 63 yards and no touchdowns on six targets. DeAndre Hopkins is the only fantasy relevant wideout for the Titans and he, too, could be a disappointment this weekend with quarterback Ryan Tannehill likely taking over for the injured Will Levis (ankle).

Treylon Burks Could See More Looks In Week 16

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks showed signs of life last week against the Houston Texans, posting three receptions for 62 yards. In Week 16, he'll face a Seattle Seahawks defense that has allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to wideouts. Additionally, Nick Westbrook Ikhine (hand) has been placed on Injured Reserve, meaning his season is over. While these developments are promising for Burks, he could be catching passes from Ryan Tannehill instead of rookie Will Levis (ankle) on Sunday. Levis has raised the ceiling of the Titans' passing offense, while Tannehill has looked like a shell of his former self in 2023. Based on Burks overall body of work, he should be avoided in Week 16. If Levis does play, Burks has some appeal in ultra-deep leagues.

Treylon Burks, Kyle Philips Miss Practice Wednesday

Tennessee Titans wide receivers Treylon Burks (illness) and Kyle Philips (hamstring) missed practice on Wednesday. One would imagine that Burks will be able to recover between now and kickoff on Sunday, though we might not get official confirmation on his status until later this week. Philips, on the other hand, is far less of a sure thing. He missed Week 15 against the Houston Texans and hasn't been healthy enough to catch a pass since last month. With that said, he's not on the fantasy radar, so his being absent wouldn't have much of an impact on managers as the fantasy playoffs continue.

Treylon Burks Has Three Catches On Sunday

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks had only three catches in Sunday's loss to the Texans. However, it was still enough to give him a team-high 62 receiving yards. Unfortunately, the Titans offense had a rough day, with Derrick Henry gaining only nine yards off 16 touches. That said, Burks entered the 2023-24 campaign with plenty of hype. However, besides missing time due to injury, he only has 24 catches on the year. Even worse, Burks hasn't scored a touchdown. With this in mind, he's not someone to consider in any fantasy format in Week 16 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

Treylon Burks Still Not On Fantasy Radar

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks rushed one time for five yards and caught one pass for one yard in the Week 14 win over the Miami Dolphins. It was nice to see the former first-round pick return to a full-time role after a serious concussion in Week 9, but he continued to fail to make an impact in fantasy football. Despite the Houston Texans' secondary struggling heading into Week 15, Burks has not done enough to make him worth gambling on in the first round of the fantasy football playoffs. Keep him on the bench or waiver wire in Week 15.

Treylon Burks Remains Off Fantasy Radar In Week 14

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks returned in Week 13 to face the Indianapolis Colts, but he posted just a 12% snap share. Burks missed the previous three games due to a concussion, so the Titans limited his snaps after he missed practice and meetings for several weeks. Against the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football, he should return to a full-time role. However, he remains off the fantasy radar since he's posted just eight receptions for 122 yards in six games this year. The 2022 first-round pick has had horrible injury luck, but the production hasn't been there even when he's been healthy. A matchup against Jalen Ramsey or Xavien Howard is unlikely to be friendly.

Titans Ramping Treylon Burks Up

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said he's hoping to see more from wide receiver Treylon Burks on Monday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins as the team ramps him up. Burks missed three games with a concussion before returning in the Week 13 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts, where he played only nine offensive snaps and wasn't targeted at all. The Titans will probably have to take to the air often against Miami in Week 14, but even with increased snaps, it doesn't mean that Burks will suddenly be in play as a flex option for fantasy managers in the deepest of leagues. The 23-year-old former first-rounder has been a bust so far in his NFL career, catching just one touchdown pass and missing 12 of a possible 29 games due to injuries.

Treylon Burks Officially Active For Week 13

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (concussion) is officially active for Week 13 versus the Indianapolis Colts. Burks had been listed as questionable but evidently cleared concussion protocol in time for kickoff Sunday. The 23-year-old has battled several injuries this season, playing in five games while catching just eight passes for 122 yards. He is not a major factor on offense and therefore can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Treylon Burks Expected To Play In Week 13

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (concussion) is expected to play in Week 13, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Burks had been listed as questionable but evidently cleared concussion protocol in time for kickoff Sunday. The 23-year-old has battled several injuries this season, playing in five games while catching just eight passes for 122 yards. Even if confirmed as active, he has not yet emerged as a major factor on offense and therefore can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Treylon Burks Questionable To Face Colts

Updating from a previous report, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (concussion) is questionable to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 13. Mike Vrabel stated that no that Titans' player is being ruled out for Sunday, but Burks still carries a "Q" tag into the AFC South battle. If he returns, it'll be his first game back from a three-game absence after he suffered a brutal hit that led to a concussion in Week 9. Although the Colts' defense was shredded by the pass to begin the season, they are now just a neutral matchup for wideouts. Burks is not worth starting this week, as DeAndre Hopkins is the clear No. 1 wide receiver for Will Levis.

Treylon Burks Cleared To Play In Week 13

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (concussion) was removed from Friday's final Week 13 injury report and he will play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Mike Vrabel. Burks will finally put an end to his three-game absence from a concussion that he suffered in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. His return is bad news for receivers Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Kyle Philips, but they weren't realistic starting fantasy options to begin with in the time that Burks missed. The 23-year-old could have his snaps limited in his first game back, but he should eventually settle in as Tennessee's No. 2 wideout behind DeAndre Hopkins. It's a boost to rookie quarterback Will Levis if Burks can remain healthy the rest of the way. At best, Burks is a bench stash in deeper fantasy leagues.

Treylon Burks Puts In Full Practice Thursday

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (concussion) upgraded to a full practice session on Thursday after he was listed as limited on Wednesday. Head coach Mike Vrabel expressed hope earlier this week that the team would be getting Burks back soon, and it could come as soon as this Sunday to face the Indianapolis Colts. The 23-year-old must clear the league's concussion protocol for the first time since suffering a head injury in Week 9. Expect the Titans to ease Burks back into the fold, though, so fantasy managers in deep leagues shouldn't expect the second-year receiver to suddenly produce. In the five games he's played for the Titans this year, Burks has only eight catches on 18 targets for 122 yards and no touchdowns. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine has been the No. 2 behind DeAndre Hopkins, but it hasn't amounted to much production in this lackluster, run-first offense.

Treylon Burks Seen Practicing On Wednesday

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (concussion) was seen practicing on Wednesday. It's been almost four weeks since Burks suffered a scary head injury against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night in Week 9. So, it's a great sign to see the 23-year-old on the practice field in some capacity. Wednesday marked his first on-field work since he suffered a concussion on Nov. 2. The Titans plan to be careful with Burks moving forward, and it remains unseen if the team will play him this weekend, even if he is fully healthy. If the wideout does suit up, he likely won't carry much fantasy value and should only be started in deeper formats in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts.
