Reynolds is signing with the Titans, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports. A 2017 fourth-round pick, Reynolds started 24 of 64 games in four seasons with the Rams, maxing out at five touchdowns (2018) and 618 yards (2020). He profiles as the No. 2 receiver on Tennessee's roster, though he'll likely be a downgrade from Corey Davis, who signed with the Jets last week. The Titans still could use more help behind A.J. Brown at wide receiver, especially given that TE Jonnu Smith (Patriots) also is gone.
Reynolds isn't expected to sign an extension with the Rams, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. While the 25-year-old receiver finished the season with career-high totals in receptions (52), receiving yards (618) and offensive snaps (803), he never fully took advantage of his role as the No. 3 receiver in the offense. Reynolds was viewed as a possible deep threat but only had one reception for over 40 yards, and he matched his yard-per-target mark of 7.6 from the previous two seasons. He should receive some attention in the free-agent market, but Reynolds is unlikely to elevate beyond being a supporting and/or depth receiver.
Reynolds recorded three receptions on four targets for 65 yards in the Rams' divisional-round loss to the Packers on Saturday. Reynolds saw an increased role in the absence of Cooper Kupp (knee) and took advantage by leading the team in receiving yards. He operated effectively over the middle of the field, racking up receptions of 28 and 21 yards. After recording 52 receptions for 618 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games in the regular season, Reynolds will hit the free-agent market for the first time in his career this offseason.
Reynolds played 43 of 73 offensive snaps but didn't receive a target during Saturday's 30-20 win over Seattle. The Rams only attempted 25 passes and completed just 12 of them, so there wasn't a lot of work available for Reynolds and the rest of the receiving corps. While Los Angeles may need to air it out more often in the divisional round against the Packers, Reynolds has been held to just 22 receptions for 202 yards over the past eight games. The fourth-year receiver is likely best viewed as a high-risk, medium-reward fantasy option Saturday.
Reynolds caught four of his six targets for 29 yards during Sunday's 18-7 win over Arizona. There were more looks in the passing attack with Cooper Kupp (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but it was rookie Van Jefferson who received the more notable statistical uptick. While Reynolds set career-high marks in receptions (52), receiving yards (618) and offensive snaps (748) this season, the fourth-year receiver wasn't able to carve out a consistent enough role in the Los Angeles offense to be a reliable asset in most settings. Kupp is expected to return for the wild-card matchup against Seattle, so Reynolds will probably remain a risky fantasy option.
