Fantasy impact of Titans 2021 NFL Draft selections

We take a look at the fantasy football impact of the Tennessee Titans’ selections in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Tennessee Titans have had quite a busy offseason as cornerbacks Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson are no longer on the roster, and they added corners Janoris Jenkins and Kevin Johnson. The Titans will also continue on without key pass catchers like wide receivers Corey Davis and Adam Humphries along with tight end Jonnu Smith, and linebacker Bud Dupree was signed to a big contract this offseason.

Tennessee could be the favorites to win the AFC South again, and the Titans could use plenty of upgrades at key spots. The Titans only have four draft picks as of now with the potential to add more through trades. Ryan Tannehill will definitely need some help with the loss of several pass catchers to go alongside A.J. Brown. The Titans still need some depth at the cornerback position, and they could potentially go after a quarterback in the middle rounds to develop.

Fantasy football impact

Dez Fitzpatrick

The Titans finally go with a skill position player in the fourth round. Fitzpatrick is a good route runner, has good size and good long speed. He doesn’t have much quickness to shake defenders underneath and likely will have trouble early on, but with Corey Davis gone, there’s a big opportunity for playing time. He has a shot to have fantasy value.
