Fringe top-3 WRs or premier rotational depth
This is the category the Tennessee Titans should try to attack in free agency. These are the players who won’t get you excited about their upside, but who should be consistent and even the best teams would probably have them somewhere in their top 3 or 4 WRs.
Jermaine Kearse is a guy who doesn’t get a lot of attention, but he definitely fits in that range. Last year was a bad one for Kearse, but in 2017 he hit career highs in receptions, receiving yards and TDs.
Expecting a guy like Kearse to hit around 500 yards and 4 TDs would be par for the course and probably not asking too much.
When Bruce Arians left Arizona the entire offense took a step back and for obvious reasons. With a one and done head coach and a rookie QB, J.J. Nelson struggled to do anything at all last year. However, in the three years prior he showed that he had some potential as a big play threat.
This offense needs someone with speed to be a gadget guy as well as a target on chunk plays. While Taywan Taylor may be that guy, he doesn’t have the top end athleticism that Nelson does (4.28 40-yard dash). If the Titans can use him as a move piece in this offense it would really force defenders to defend the whole field.
Chris Conley is good enough to be a fringe starter for a team given his size and his big play ability. However, I don’t think anyone will be banging down the door for him and he is probably going to be one of the few players who actually makes less than what people expect.
