Player Outlook

Firkser always seems to get a little bit of attention from Fantasy managers, especially those in TE-premium leagues. However, he's never been able to establish himself as a legit receiving threat through four seasons. Reunited with his former position coach in Atlanta, Firkser will likely serve as a traditional tight end for the Falcons and help with their blocking more than their receiving. You shouldn't draft him.

Player News
  • Firkser is signing with the Falcons, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Firkser spent the first four years of his career in Tennessee, where he started three of 58 regular-season games and caught 106 passes for 1,107 yards and five touchdowns. The tight end showed some ability as a receiver but never earned consistent snaps or targets in a run-first offense. The 27-year-old Firkser now serves as depth behind Kyle Pitts, the clear favorite to lead Atlanta in targets this season.

  • Firkser recorded four receptions on four targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans. Firkser maintained an increased role in the Titans' passing attack, as he racked up at least three targets for the second consecutive game. He took advantage of his opportunities and opened the scoring with a five-yard touchdown catch midway through the second quarter. Firkser also made a number of big plays, tallying receptions that went for 24 and 17 yards. After a slow start to the campaign, Firkser has closed the season with at least three catches in three of his last five games while also scoring twice in that span.

  • Firkser recorded three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins. No Titans pass catcher was able to rack up an impressive stat line due to lack of volume, though Firkser put together a solid performance. He found the end zone for the first time this season on a 15-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter after MyCole Pruitt exited with an ankle injury that appeared to be serious. If Pruitt remains sidelined, Firkser should be able to build on his recent form -- he's recorded multiple receptions in four of his last six games -- in a Week 18 matchup against Houston.

  • Firkser recorded two receptions on two targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Pittsburgh. Firkser recorded multiple receptions for the third time in his last four games, though he was still on the field for only 17 offensive snaps. He lost a fumble on Tennessee's first drive, which may have limited his playing time further. Overall, Firkser remains in the tight end rotation in Tennessee, but his production remains unreliable while splitting time with both Geoff Swaim and MyCole Pruitt.

  • Firkser recorded one reception on one target for seven yards in Sunday's 36-13 loss to the Patriots. Firkser was on the field for 26 offensive snaps (41 percent), but he failed to remain involved in the Titans' offense. One week after seeing seven targets in the absence of Geoff Swaim, Firkser recorded only one target for the fourth time in his last seven contests.
