The Titans stuck to the status quo over the offseason. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. They are hoping they can push into the Super Bowl this time around.

It was tough picking a breakout player for the Titans. Derrick Henry and AJ Brown are both highly drafted and will do well. I don’t want to sit here and write a long article about Ryan Tannehill or Corey Davis, no one wants to read that. So instead, I will turn to their up and coming tight end (not much better than the previous players noted but deal with it).

Jonnu Smith (ADP: TE15): This is not a sexy pick, so I will keep it short. Jonnu Smith spent years in the shadow of Delanie Walker. He would periodically catch a touchdown and everyone would say “WHO????”. It helped no one in Fantasy Football. But this year, that changes. Jonnu won’t be the number one TE in fantasy, but he has the skill and opportunity to be a Top 10 producing TE. Depending on league and bench size, draft him as a TE2 if your TE is Hunter Henry, Evan Engram, etc. (people that are injury prone). You always could use a reliable backup. If you are looking for a TE with great upside and the most touchdown opportunities, Jonnu is your guy in the later portion of your drafts.
