Player Outlook
Okonkwo was a trendy sleeper pick last summer but ultimately disappointed, scoring just one touchdown and seeing his yards per route run plummet from 2.61 in 2022 to 1.31 in 2023. He scored just the 29th-most Fantasy points per game at the TE position. In 2024, Okonkwo could be a post-hype sleeper if the offense takes a step forward in Will Levis' second season. However, he has more target competition after the team signed Calvin Ridley. There are better TEs to invest in on draft day.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Modest showing in Week 18

    Okonkwo recorded two receptions (on three targets) for 36 yards in Sunday's 28-20 win over the Jaguars. The Titans had a positive game script for much of the contest, which limited passing volume. As a result, Okonkwo had a quiet close to the season. Despite a very inconsistent passing attack in Tennessee, he did manage to take a moderate step forward in his sophomore campaign by tallying 54 receptions for 528 yards and a touchdown. Okonkwo should have a significant role in the offense again in 2024, though his potential volume will ultimately be determined by whether DeAndre Hopkins is back with the team and any subsequent additions the Titans make to their pass-catching corps.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Three catches Sunday

    Okonkwo caught three passes for 34 yards on four targets in Sunday's 26-3 loss to Houston. Okonkwo tried to do his part Sunday, but the Titans were clearly overmatched from the start. The matchup was complicated when rookie quarterback Will Levis left the game with a foot injury after just six pass attempts, though replacement Ryan Tannehill was effective enough (16 of 20 for 168 yards passing). Though Okonkwo is a talented and consistently effective player for Tennessee, his lack of opportunity in the Tennessee offense is equally consistent. No matter which quarterback lines up against Jacksonville in Week 18, Okonkwo seems doomed to swimming against the tide in most matchups.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Good to go for Sunday

    Okonkwo (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Okonkwo carried a questionable tag into the weekend after he was added to the injury report Friday, when he was unable to practice due to the illness. The tight end has apparently made good progress in his recovery since Friday, and the expectation is that he'll be able to handle his usual workload. However, Okonkwo will be working with a new quarterback for the first time since Week 8, as rookie Will Levis (ankle) is inactive for the contest and will give way to veteran Ryan Tannehill.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Uncertain to play Sunday

    Okonkwo didn't practice Friday due to an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. After practicing fully Wednesday and Thursday, Okonkwo sat out Friday's session, so his status will need to be monitored ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Okonkwo is one of three Tennessee tight ends carrying a questionable tag, joining Josh Whyle (knee) and Trevon Wesco (shin).

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Racks up 46 yards

    Okonkwo recorded five receptions (on six targets) for 46 yards in Monday's 28-27 win over Miami. Okonkwo continued to see significant involvement in the Tennessee offense, as he now has at least five targets in five of seven games since Will Levis took over as the team's quarterback. Both his longest and most impactful reception came just prior to the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter, when he gained 16 yards to set up Derrick Henry for the game-winning score. Okonkwo now has topped 40 receiving yards in three consecutive games after failing to do so in any of Tennessee's first 10 matchups of the year.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Continues to see deeper targets

    Okonkwo recorded three receptions on six targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Colts. Okonkwo recorded the Titans' longest play from scrimmage on a 39-yard reception on the game's second play. He was held relatively quiet from that point forward, though he did also manage a 12-yard reception in overtime to set up a go-ahead field goal. After struggling to get looks downfield to start the season, Okoknwo has set his best yardage-total marks for the season in consecutive games.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Finally gets downfield looks

    Okonkwo recorded four receptions on five targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Panthers. Okonkwo tallied his highest yardage total of the season, in large part thanks to a 25-yard reception late in the first quarter. That marked only his second reception of more than 20 yards this season. Okonkwo has at least four targets in eight of 11 games this season, so if he starts to see more downfield looks, he could finally deliver on preseason expectations down the stretch of the campaign.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Disappointing season continues

    Okonkwo recorded one reception (on two targets) for six yards in Sunday's 34-14 loss to the Jaguars. Okonkwo saw his lowest target total and production since Week 1, continuing his disappointing 2023 campaign. Though he's tallied at least three catches in seven of 10 games, he's topped 30 receiving yards in a contest only twice.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Three catches against Bucs

    Okonkwo recorded three receptions (on six targets) for 27 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Buccaneers. Even with Will Levis under center, the story remains the same for Okonkwo. Okonkwo has consistent involvement in the offense -- he's earned at least four targets in seven of nine games -- but isn't utilized downfield, as only one of his 27 receptions on the season has gone for more than 20 yards. He now has failed to reach 30 receiving yards in four consecutive contests.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Three grabs in Week 9 loss

    Okonkwo brought in three of four targets for 28 yards in the Titans' 20-16 loss to the Steelers on Thursday night. Okonkwo was on the field for 73 percent of the Titans' snaps on offense Thursday, but the athletic tight end's yardage total continued in the same underwhelming range it's typically been this season. Okonkwo has been at 35 yards or less in each game despite serving as the top pass-catching option at tight end, and to this point, he hasn't seen any bump from the switch at quarterback from Ryan Tannehill (ankle) to Will Levis.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Held to 23 yards

    Okonkwo recorded four receptions (on six targets) for 23 yards in Sunday's 28-23 win over the Falcons. Okonkwo has at least six targets in two of his last three games, yet he has only 74 yards combined in that span. Even more disappointing is Okonkwo's lack of involvement near the end zone, as he has only two targets inside the 20 and only one inside the 10. Overall, he has failed to top 35 yards in any of his seven contests this season.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Finally gets involved

    Okonkwo recorded five receptions on nine targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Colts. Okonkwo entered Sunday's matchup having failed to command more than four targets in any contest. While he saw his opportunity tick up, he didn't deliver on his chances as he managed only 3.7 yards per target. Okonkwo was a potential breakout candidate in his second season as a pro, though he has yet to surpass 35 receiving yards through five games.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: TEs to Sit

    I made the mistake of expecting Okonkwo to step up in Week 4 against Cincinnati with Treylon Burks (knee) out, and he had another subpar outing with three catches for 29 yards on three targets. He's now scored 7.5 PPR points or less in every game this year, and he's yet to find the end zone. Even if Burks remains out again in Week 5 against the Colts, I can't trust Okonkwo, even in the deepest of leagues. Indianapolis has yet to allow a tight end to score a touchdown, and the Colts have held Evan Engram and Mark Andrews to 9.9 PPR points or less this year.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Sleeper TEs

    Treylon Burks (knee) is out in Week 4 against the Bengals, and I'm hoping that opens up some targets for Okonkwo. He's been disappointing so far this season with four catches and 35 yards or less in every game, with no touchdowns, but hopefully Ryan Tannehill leans on Okonkwo against Cincinnati in a favorable matchup. The Bengals have allowed two tight end touchdowns this season, and last week Tyler Higbee had five catches for 71 yards on five targets. You can only consider using Okonkwo in deeper leagues, but this could be his best game of the season with Burks out.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: No production on three catches

    Okonkwo recorded three catches on four targets for seven yards in Sunday's 27-3 loss to Cleveland. Okonkwo finished tied for the third on the team in targets, though he ultimately failed to reach double-digit receiving yards for the second time in three games to begin the season. His place in priority for targets combined with the state of the Titans' passing attack suggest that Okonkwo will struggle to produce consistently.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: TEs to Sit

    Okonkwo once again disappointed Fantasy managers in Week 2 against the Chargers with four catches for 35 yards on four targets, but it was an improvement from his Week 1 stat line against the Saints when he had no catches. We'll see what happens in Week 3 against the Browns, but Cleveland has so far eliminated Irv Smith Jr. and Pat Freiermuth in two games with a combined four catches for 19 yards and no touchdowns on six targets. I'm not starting Okonkwo in any leagues in Week 3 if I can avoid it.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Tallies first catches of season

    Okonkwo recorded four receptions on four targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Chargers. Okonkwo was targeted only twice and failed to record a catch Week 1, though he bounced back for a decent performance against the Chargers. His primary contribution came early in the third quarter when he caught a short pass over the middle of the field before dragging defenders for a gain of 20 yards. Okonkwo will likely see inconsistent volume when the entire Tennessee receiving corps is healthy, but he continues to prove capable of making big plays when given a chance.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Blanked in Week 1

    Okonkwo did not record a reception on two targets in Sunday's 16-15 loss to the Saints. Okonkwo was a breakout candidate for much of the offseason, though those hopes were seemingly derailed by the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. That came to fruition in Week 1, as Hopkins dominated with 13 targets on only 33 catchable pass attempts from Ryan Tannehill. Okonkwo could become a threat in the red zone, but he'll likely face a difficult path to seeing consistent targets.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: TEs to Sit

    Okonkwo is one of my favorite tight ends to stash, but I don't want to start him in Week 1 against the Saints. For starters, I want to see how Tennessee's offense looks with DeAndre Hopkins, Treylon Burks and Okonkwo all healthy, and Okonkwo has to prove he will command targets from Ryan Tannehill while sharing the field with those receivers, as well as Derrick Henry. The Saints were also No. 1 in fewest PPR points allowed to opposing tight ends last year, and this defense should be able to limit Okonkwo's production this week.

  • Titans' Chigoziem Okonkwo: Week 1 Waiver Priority List

    Despite the addition of Hopkins and the presence of Burks, Okonkwo should still get enough targets from Ryan Tannehill where he could be a low-end starter in all leagues. I like drafting Okonkwo with another tight end with upside -- like Dalton Kincaid or LaPorta -- and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Okonkwo as the better Fantasy option. Kyle Philips (knee) being out should help Okonkwo, and I would add him in all formats for up to 5 percent of your remaining FAB.
