Until Firkser receives meaningful playing time and target volume, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to their rosters.

  • Anthony Firkser: Joins active roster

    The Lions signed Firkser to their active roster Saturday. Firkser's signing could be an indication that Detroit is preparing to be without rookie sensation Sam LaPorta in Sunday's affair. If the Lions are without LaPorta in the wild-card round, Firkser would likely serve as the team's top backup tight end behind Brock Wright.

  • Anthony Firkser: Back to Detroit's practice squad

    The Lions signed Firkser to their practice squad Saturday. Firkser was cut by the Lions on Thursday after being signed to their active roster Dec. 30. With Brock Wright (hip) ruled out for Detroit's regular-season finale against the Vikings, Firkser could be called up to the active roster and operate behind Sam LaPorta and James Mitchell.

  • Lions' Anthony Firkser: Added to active roster

    The Lions signed Firkser from their practice squad to their active roster Saturday. Firkser was elevated from the team's practice squad for last Sunday's win over Minnesota and played two offensive snaps without recording any stats. With Brock Wright (hip) deemed out Saturday versus Dallas and unable to practice at all during Week 17 prep, the Lions have decided to sign Firkser to the active roster rather than elevate him again. The third-year tight end will serve as depth behind Sam LaPorta and James Mitchell for Saturday's clash.

  • Anthony Firkser: Back to practice squad

    Firkser reverted to Detroit's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Firkser was elevated for Sunday's win over the Vikings with Brock Wright (hip) ruled out. He played two offensive snaps and 10 snaps on special teams but didn't record any stats. Now, the veteran tight end will await another opportunity to be elevated for game action. One such opportunity could come again Week 17 if Wright remains sidelined.

  • Lions' Anthony Firkser: Elevated with Wright out

    Firkser was elevated from Detroit's practice squad Saturday. Firkser could fill a depth role at tight end Sunday against the Vikings. He last appeared in an NFL game last season as a member of the Falcons. Brock Wright (hip) has been ruled out for the Lions, but Sam LaPorta and James Mitchell remain above Firkser on the depth chart.

  • Anthony Firkser: Goes to Lions' practice squad

    Detroit signed Firkser to its practice squad Tuesday. Firkser has been a free agent since parting ways with New England prior to Week 1, but he has now found another opportunity with the Lions. Detroit already holds four tight ends on its 53-man roster, though, so Firkser will have to make space for himself if he is going to find any at all.

  • Anthony Firkser: Cut by New England

    The Patriots released Firkser on Tuesday, Doug Kyed of the Boston Herald reports. Firkser was looking to carve out a depth role behind Hunter Henry and Mike Gesicki (shoulder), but he ultimately won't make New England's initial 53-man roster. The Harvard product has appeared in at least 11 games in each of his first five NFL seasons (four with Tennessee and one with Atlanta), so he figures to draw at least some attention in free agency but will likely have to settle for a practice-squad deal.

  • Patriots' Anthony Firkser: Inks new deal

    Firkser signed a contract with the Patriots on Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Firkser appeared in 11 games for the Falcons last season after spending the first four years of his career with the Titans. The 28-year-old finished his 2022 campaign with nine catches on 13 targets for 100 yards. With the Patriots, Firkser will seek to secure a depth tight end role behind the team's top two options at the position, Hunter Henry and Mike Gesicki.

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: Minimal role in 2022

    Firkser caught nine of 13 targets for 100 yards across 11 appearances during the 2022 campaign. Firkser caught just three of four targets for 39 yards over the first five games of the season before being a healthy inactive from Weeks 6 through 11. After Kyle Pitts (knee) was placed on injured reserve, Firkser's role began to grow, but he still mustered just six receptions on nine targets for 61 yards over Atlanta's final six contests. It was the fifth-year tight end's worst statistical season of his career, and he'll presumably look to move on during free agency this offseason.

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: Catches lone target in loss

    Firkser secured his only target for 16 yards during Sunday's 19-13 loss against Washington. With Kyle Pitts (knee) sidelined, Firkser saw 22 offensive snaps, which put him as the No. 3 tight end behind Parker Hesse (35) and MyCole Pruitt (32). All three tight ends caught at least one pass, but Pruitt secured Marcus Mariota's lone touchdown. As long as Pitts remains out, all three tight ends figure to garner increased roles, but Pruitt will likely remain the top pass catcher among the trio.

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: May be part of plan sans Pitts

    Firkser may be among the players asked to have a larger role in the absence of Kyle Pitts (knee), Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Firkser appeared in the team's first five games, totaling three receptions on four targets for 39 yards. However, he hasn't seen the field since, logging healthy scratches each week. With Pitts on IR, Atlanta will likely take a committee approach to replacing the talented pass catcher, which may include Firkser getting back in the mix. The fifth-year tight end recorded over 200 receiving yards in each of his first four NFL campaigns with Tennessee and finished with 73 receptions on 96 targets for 678 yards and three scores across the 2020 and 2021 campaigns. If he's able to garner a similar role with Pitts sidelined, he could emerge as a viable streaming option in deeper leagues. However, he's still currently behind Parker Hesse and MyCole Pruitt on the depth chart.

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: Isn't suiting up Sunday

    Firkser (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Firkser will now miss a third consecutive contest due to a coach's decision after playing in each of the team's first five games. While the Falcons currently have four healthy tight ends in front of the 27-year-old on the team's depth chart, it's uncertain when Firkser will return to game action.

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: Inactive again Sunday

    Firkser (coach's decision) won't be active for Sunday's clash in Cincinnati, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Firkser will stay on the sidelines for the second straight week after playing in each of Atlanta's first five games. With four healthy tight ends currently ahead of him, it's uncertain when the veteran will next take the field.

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: Catches 22-yard pass in win

    Firkser reeled in his only target for 22 yards during Sunday's 27-23 victory over the Seahawks. Firkser played eight offensive snaps and caught just one pass but still finished fourth on the team in receiving yards. His lone reception came on the team's opening offensive drive and set up an eventual one-yard touchdown run by Marcus Mariota. Through three games, the tight end has garnered 23 offensive snaps and caught two of three targets for 28 yards in a depth role behind Kyle Pitts.

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: Elevated to active roster

    Atlanta has elevated Firkster to its active roster ahead of Sunday's Week 1 game versus the Saints, Tori McElhaney of the team's official website reports. Firkster was cut by the Falcons during final roster cuts before returning via the practice squad. He will now be available to provide depth at tight end behind second-year sensation Kyle Pitts.

  • Anthony Firkser: Stays in Atlanta

    The Falcons signed Firkser to the practice squad Thursday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Firkser did not survive Atlanta's final roster cuts Tuesday, but he should now return in an emergency backup role on the team's practice squad. However, the 27-year-old should still be eligible to sign with another team in need of veteran depth at tight end this regular season.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Productive against Texans

    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.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Finds end zone

    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.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Pair of receptions

    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.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Back in mix

    Firsker recorded five receptions on seven targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 22-13 loss to the Texans. Firkser benefitted from the absence of Geoff Swaim (concussion) to climb the tight end depth chart for Tennessee. His five receptions were a season high, and the game marked the first time he's posted multiple catches since Week 5. It remains to be seen whether this performance will keep Firkser more involved in the game plan moving forward, though he would likely benefit should Swaim remain sidelined for a Week 12 matchup against New England.
