Eagles WR Brown dominates Titans in revenge game

The Tennessee Titans traded star wide receiver A.J. BROWN to the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason, and Brown got his “revenge” in Sunday’s win. Brown caught 8 passes for 119 yards andMore 2 touchdowns for the Eagles and his fantasy owners on Sunday. Meanwhile, the wideout the Titans drafted to replace Brown, TREYLON BURKS, scored his first career touchdown before leaving the game after being injured on an illegal hit. Less

Factoid: Rookie receivers

I think we should all be drafting rookie receivers a little earlier. There’s risk involved, and I see plenty of slow starters, but I also see a bunch of them outperforming where there were chosen.  more »


Ian Allan: Thursday night recap

Christian Watson followed up his breakout game with 2 more touchdown catches, yet wasn’t even the most impressive rookie receiver on the field. Observations from the first game of the Week 11 slate:   more »


Factoid: Rookie receivers

The rookie receivers didn’t light up the boxscores in the preseason, but that’s OK. That’s just how it goes nowadays. And if form holds, probably a couple of these first-year receivers are going to be very good.  more »


Factoid: Treylon Burks

What can be expected from Treylon Burks (and other first-round rookie wideouts)? Six were selected in the top 20 picks back in April, and most joined teams where there's the potential to be early starters. Actually putting up strong numbers right away in fantasy leagues, though, is a hit-or-miss kind of deal.   more »


Factoid: Rookie receivers

Camps are opening, and it will be interesting to get eyes on some of these rookie receivers. There are no can’t-miss type prospects, but with the volume that were selected (including six with top-20 picks) there should be at least some value in there somewhere.  more »


Around the NFL: Kyle Philips

I saw a feel-good story about fifth-rounder Kyle Philips go by, and it’s got me wondering if the Titans might have another Hunter Renfrow or Amon-Ra St. Brown on their hands. Every once in a blue moon, these later round receivers carve out decent roles.   more »


Around the NFL: Robert Woods

Robert Woods is running around some at OTAs. I take that as a good thing. If he’s right physically, I would think he’ll be the most productive wide receiver for the Titans. I like his experience more than the unknown potential of first-rounder Treylon Burks.  more »


Factoid: Rookie receivers

Somebody in the comments section (Robert S, I think) was asking about rookie receivers, and whether any of them will post top-40 numbers. I think I can answer that one. Yes, definitely.  more »



Titans trade WR Brown to Eagles, draft rookie WR Burks

The Tennessee Titans traded star wide receiver A.J. BROWN to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, then proceeded to draft his replacement in rookie wideout TREYLON BURKS from Arkansas. Interestingly, Burks has been compared to Brown in the pre-draft process. Time will tell if Burks lives up to the comparison.

Factoid: Rookie receivers

It’s a weird year for wide receivers. There’s plenty of talent, with perhaps a record number being selected in the first three rounds, but there’s no clear No. 1 prospect. In my eyes, there’s no receiver who looks like a lock to be one of the first two selected at the position.   more »


Around the NFL: Philadelphia Eagles

Before Calvin Ridley was suspended for the season, there were a couple of teams looking to trade for him. We learned last week that the Eagles were one of those teams, which makes sense. Last year's top pick DeVonta Smith was a 900-yard receiver, but he was about all they had at the position.   more »


Andy Richardson: First-round wideouts

Wide receivers ran the 40 at the NFL combine yesterday. It's a fun time, and a change after the combine was scrapped entirely a year ago, leaving us with only pro day times (which aren't uniform, and aren't as reliable). These are numbers that will absolutely affect when and where players are drafted at the end of next month.   more »
