2018 Fantasy Outlook
Firkser didn't suit up in an NFL game for his first two seasons in the league. He signed with the Titans in May and will shift from tight end to the fullback position. If he can shake off the learning curve, he could see a good chunk of offensive snaps, although little will surface in the fantasy realm. Read Past Outlooks

Role set to expand
TETennessee Titans
December 10, 2018
Anthony Firkser is likely to see an increased role with Jonnu Smith and Delanie Walker both sidelined, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Speaking at Monday's press conference, coach Mike Vrabel said of Firkser, "I think we have to get Anthony in there more, regardless of who is healthy." While MyCole Pruitt and Luke Stocker will be available to play, they have both made negligible contributions in the passing game. That leaves Firkser -- who has recorded at least three receptions in each of his last four games -- as the most likely candidate to fill in as the primary receiving option at the position on Sunday against the Giants.
