    Vikings' Tajae Sharpe: No receptions Sunday

    Tajae Sharpe could not haul in a deep pass on a fourth down play on his lone target in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. He played just seven snaps on offense.It was a curious choice for Kirk Cousins to throw a deep ball to Sharpe on a key fourth and short play given his minimal role on offense. Sharpe looks set to just provide veteran depth off the bench in Minnesota's offense.

    Vikings' Tajae Sharpe: Scores second unit TD in scrimmage

    Tajae Sharpe caught a touchdown pass in Friday's dress rehearsal scrimmage at U.S. Bank Stadium, but he mostly worked with the second-team offense, Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.Bisi Johnson has worked as No. 2 receiver in camp opposite Adam Thielen and 2020 first-round draft pick Justin Jefferson has operated as the slot receiver in three-receiver sets. The Minnesota Vikings rarely used four-receiver sets last season, so Sharpe may be limited to a depth role as the fourth or fifth receiver.

    Vikings' Tajae Sharpe: Likely lands behind rookie

    Justin Jefferson is expected to emerge over Tajae Sharpe for a Week 1 starting job, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.Sharpe was penciled in as Minnesota's No. 2 wide receiver after signing a one-year, $1 million contract in late March, but there was never any question the team would add more talent at his position. Jefferson is a first-round pick coming off an 18-touchdown season at LSU, while Sharpe is a 2016 fifth-round selection who averaged 24.8 receiving yards in 47 games with the Titans the past four years. The two may duke it out for a starting job in training camp, but Jefferson will have the edge if it's close.

    Vikings' Tajae Sharpe: Gets $675k guaranteed

    Tajae Sharpe's one-year, $1 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings includes $675,000 guaranteed and another $500,000 available via incentives, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.The willingness to guarantee a large portion of the contract suggests the Vikings expect Sharpe to have a spot on the 53-man roster, though it probably wouldn't be enough to keep him safe if he were to struggle throughout training camp and preseason. While he might currently profile as the team's No. 2 receiver, Sharpe likely will have to battle for every snap and target, potentially facing competition from Bisi Johnson, Chad Beebe and a rookie or two.

    Vikings' Tajae Sharpe: Signing with Minnesota

    Tajae Sharpe agreed Wednesday with the Minnesota Vikings on a one-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.Sharpe started 29 of his 47 games for Tennessee over the past four years, catching 92 of 165 targets (55.8 percent) for 1,167 yards (7.1 per target, 12.7 per catch) and eight touchdowns. He won't come close to replacing Stefon Diggs, but the 25-year-old will at least give the Vikings a sorely needed competent body at wide receiver.

    Titans' Tajae Sharpe: Serves as depth receiver

    Tajae Sharpe recorded 25 receptions for 329 yards and four touchdowns across 15 games with the Tennessee Titans during the 2019 season.Sharpe played a limited role for much of the season, but he had productive spells as a depth option among the Titans' pass-catching corps. His peak performance of the campaign came in Week 16 against the Saints, when he caught two touchdowns. Though he has never replicated the results of his rookie campaign -- he hauled in 41 passes for 522 yards in 2016 -- Sharpe could find himself with an increased role as he is set to become a free agent for the first time in his career.

    Titans' Tajae Sharpe: Fades to background

    Tajae Sharpe hauled in one of his two targets for 13 yards in the team's Week 17 win over the Texans.Sharpe failed to follow up on his two-touchdown performance against the Saints, falling into the background of the Tennessee Titans' passing attack. He ended the season with very similar numbers to the 2018 campaign, racking up 25 receptions for 329 yards and four touchdowns. The 2016 fifth-round pick is concluding the final year of his rookie contract, meaning he could join a new team in search of an expanded role in 2020. However, given Sharpe's stagnant production since his rookie season, he's unlikely to be signed as a core piece of any team. Prior to searching for a new deal, Sharpe will serve as the team's third receiver in its first-round playoff matchup at New England.

    Titans' Tajae Sharpe: Pair of touchdowns

    Tajae Sharpe hauled in five of six targets for 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's Week 16 loss to the Saints.Sharpe turned in his best game of the season, doubling his touchdown total in the process. Both of his trips to the end zone came in the second half, the first on a 36-yard play during which Sharpe caught a short pass over the middle of the field before outracing defenders to find the end zone. He followed that up with a spectacular 7-yard catch over Janoris Jenkins in the back of the end zone halfway through the fourth quarter. Though he did the majority of his damage prior to Corey Davis (concussion) exiting the game, Sharpe could be in a strong position to produce again if Davis is forced to miss the team's Week 17 matchup against the Texans.

    Titans' Tajae Sharpe: Records pair of catches

    Tajae Sharpe hauled in both of his targets to record 28 yards in the team's Week 15 loss to the Texans.Sharpe was projected to see an increased role in the absence of Adam Humphries (ankle), though Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith both outplayed him. More positively, he turned both of his targets into productive plays, recording receptions of 16 and 12 yards. Still, Sharpe has failed to surpass 35 yards in any game since his Week 3 outburst against the Jaguars, and his role isn't projected to get any larger before the close of the season.

    Titans' Tajae Sharpe: Likely to fill in for Humphries

    Tajae Sharpe is expected to handle a regular role in three-receiver sets Sunday against the Texans with Adam Humphries (ankle) ruled out for the contest.Humphries was also sidelined for last week's win over the Raiders, allowing Sharpe to handle his second-biggest offensive snap share (48 percent) since Week 4. During that outing, Sharpe caught all four of his targets for 25 yards, so his fantasy upside should remain fairly low even though he'll benefit from another plus matchup against a leaky Houston secondary. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis profile as the best fantasy options among Tennessee's pass catchers.
