2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sharpe has failed to gain traction after his solid rookie campaign in 2016, during which he posted 41 receptions for 522 yards and two touchdowns. His 2017 season was lost entirely due to a foot injury, and he didn't return with much production in the 2018 season, racking up only 26 receptions for 316 yards and two scores. That he managed only marginal production despite the absence of top tight end Delanie Walker and a lackluster wide receiving corps behind Corey Davis doesn't bode well for his future production in the league. Now heading into his fourth season, Sharpe will find himself fighting for a roster spot after the team added Adam Humphries via free agency and spent a second-round draft pick on A.J. Brown.

Finding role on special teams
WRTennessee Titans
June 6, 2019
Head coach Mike Vrabel indicated the Titans are trying to find a spot for Sharpe on special teams, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Most non-starting receivers need to contribute on special teams to justify their roster spot, and Sharpe does not have good odds of cracking a rather solidified top quartet of Corey Davis, A.J. Brown (undisclosed), Adam Humphries and Taywan Taylor. While he'll thus need to earn a spot in that phase to stick around, it's not clear where that might be considering Sharpe has only logged eight snaps on special teams in his career. In any case, Sharpe drew praise for his offensive performance in practice this week and is still only 24 years old entering his fourth season in the league. There could be upside for him down the road if he finds a less crowded depth chart.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
Remember when Sharpe opened the 2016 season in a starting role as a rookie? Since then Sharpe has tumbled down the depth chart and he's now opening the 2018 season as nothing more than the No. 5 or 6 receiving option behind Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor, not to mention tight ends Delanie Walker and possibly Jonnu Smith. This spells trouble for his prospects ahead of the 2018 season, as the volume is simply unlikely to be there for Sharpe to be a worthwhile fantasy asset. With that said, the University of Massachusetts product is now fully recovered from the stress fracture that wiped away his entire 2017 campaign, and Sharpe could eventually benefit from the fact that Matthews has only played a full 16-game season twice in his six-year career.
Sharpe started from the get-go after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, but he turned that opportunity into just 41 catches for 522 yards and two touchdowns. The Titans signed Eric Decker and used the fifth and 72nd overall picks on wide receivers, so Sharpe could fall as low as fifth on the depth chart. While he lacks the measurables to be elite at this level, Sharpe's crisp route running and strong hands should make him a reliable depth receiver for an improving Marcus Mariota.
While the Titans are deep at wide receiver, they don't necessarily have clear-cut starters who have separated themselves from the pack. Sharpe was incredibly productive with 196 receptions for 2,600 yards and 12 touchdowns over his last two seasons at Massachusetts, and the fifth-rounder has turned heads in earning some first-team reps in camp. Still, the rookie has to beat out a bevy of more experienced options if he wants to make an impact when the games actually start to count.
