They'll take on the Dolphins Week 3.
With Dwayne Bowe sidelined Week 1 due to a suspension,
Avery finished with seven catches for 84 yards, which were both team highs. He was also targeted a team-high 13 times and his longest catch went 25 yards. Avery did most of his damage in the second half, as he had just two catches for 21 yards in the first half.
The Chiefs are back in action Week 2 at Denver. Bowe is expected to return from his suspension next week.
As Dwayne Bowe sits out Week 1 against the Titans due to a suspension,
Avery had one of his better performances in 2013 against the Titans, totaling 91 yards on three catches. Though, for the most part, wide receivers struggled against Tennessee in 2013. Wide receivers average 126 receiving yards and 14 Fantasy points per week, which was the lowest average in the league. Wide receivers had just six touchdowns in 16 games against Tennessee.
The fact Avery will likely be a top target in the passing game Week 1 with Bowe out makes him a potential sleeper in deeper formats. But there are still plenty of more viable sleepers ahead of Avery, who should be considered more of a desperation start.
Avery is expected to start opposite Dwayne Bowe this season.
"Donnie looks good," Reid said. "He's running fast, and I remember this time last year he had the high ankle or there was something there, so he really missed all of the OTAs and then he came back and he had the scapula there that he had hurt. He's in good shape right now."
Avery finished 2013 with 40 catches for 596 yards and two touchdowns.
Avery was taken to the locker room for concussion evaluation, and was ruled out for the remainder of the game shortly after.
