Titans sign Josh Reynolds: Fantasy football fallout for 2021

New Tennesse Titans wideout Josh Reynolds will get the first crack at filling the void left by Corey Davis.

The Tennessee Titans dealt with multiple departures on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. Wide receiver Corey Davis left for a big payday with the New York Jets while tight end Jonnu Smith also cashed in by joining the New England Patriots. Even offensive coordinator Arthur Smith moved on, accepting the head-coaching position with the Atlanta Falcons.

But while the Titans have lost so much, they did manage to add some help during the first wave of free agency.

Josh Reynolds signing: Fantasy football impact

With Davis gone and an established wideout needed opposite star receiver A.J. Brown, the Titans brought in former Los Angeles Rams receiver Josh Reynolds. While Reynolds lacks the athleticism and upside Davis offers, he does come from a similar offense and has played reasonably well when given the chance to start. Reynolds will have to earn a job during training camp, but his experience gives him an upper hand in that competition.

But even if Reynolds wins a starting job, he probably can’t expect to become an every-week option in fantasy. The Titans still funnel their offense through All-Pro running back Derrick Henry, and most of the passing game will go through Brown. Reynolds could finish with a stat line not dissimilar from the one he delivered for the Rams this past season — 52 catches for 618 yards and two touchdowns — but his value will only come during the right matchups.
