|Of Tennessee’s top three receivers, Rishard Matthews was the most valuable fantasy commodity in 2015 and he feels like the safest bet to produce given the team’s desire to sign him as a free agent. He offers more athleticism and a better fit for the short to intermediate routes that this offense has lacked. He has a good chance to earn a starting job but until his true usage and targets shake out it will be tough to accurately assess Matthews’ fantasy value for 2016. Likewise, he is currently the first Titans receiver off the board in standard 12-team leagues. Tajae Sharpe is a rookie receiver out of UMass that will also be in the mix in the large battle at the position. His presence with the first team during OTAs appears on the surface to be a motivational ploy directed at Dorial Green-Beckham. Nonetheless, the team is high on the youngster and he may prove to be a long term option in the slot if Kendall Wright leaves in free agency next season. Harry Douglas and Justin Hunter are hanging around but the coaching staff seems to be abiding by the “out with the old, in with the new” adage at the receiver position. Tennessee could look to strike a deal or outright waive Douglas or Hunter before Week 1.

FFToday's Take: The 35 year-old receiver has decided to hang it up after posting only 9 catches through six games in 2016. Johnson made his name in Houston delivering seven 1000-yard receiving seasons including three (2008,2009,2012) over 1500 yards. The Titans are piecing together their receiving corps with Tajae Sharpe, Rishard Matthews and Kendall Wright.
