2. Damiere Byrd
Now, Byrd is not a household name, but it felt like every time I found myself watching a Cardinals game last year, he had the ball. It was a strange feeling, tuning in for fantasy football purposes and wondering why my guy, wide receiver Keesean Johnson, wasn’t getting the rock.
Yes, I’m in leagues with rosters that are way too deep.
Byrd finished the year with 32 catches for 359 yards and a touchdown, hauling in 69.6 percent of passes thrown his way. Half of those catches went for first downs.
More importantly, according to Next Gen Stats, Byrd created 3.2 yards of separation per route run. Separation is a category in which the Titans have struggled for a long time. It’s a big reason why they brought in Humphries.
For whatever reason, Davis and Sharpe are unable to get open consistently, and Humphries couldn’t stay healthy enough for us to get a glimpse.
Byrd could offer elite track and field speed over the top, while also creating healthy competition for Raymond come training camp.
