2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sharpe has failed to gain traction after his solid rookie campaign in 2016, during which he posted 41 receptions for 522 yards and two touchdowns. His 2017 season was lost entirely due to a foot injury, and he didn't return with much production in the 2018 season, racking up only 26 receptions for 316 yards and two scores. That he managed only marginal production despite the absence of top tight end Delanie Walker and a lackluster wide receiving corps behind Corey Davis doesn't bode well for his future production in the league. Now heading into his fourth season, Sharpe will find himself fighting for a roster spot after the team added Adam Humphries via free agency and spent a second-round draft pick on A.J. Brown.

October 7, 2019
Sharpe hauled in his lone target for 12 yards Week 5 against the Bills.
ANALYSIS
After seeing multiple targets in each of the Titans' first three contests, Sharpe now has just one target combined in the team's last two games. Perhaps more notable is Sharpe's steep decline in snap count, as he was on the field for just 32 percent of the team's offensive snaps -- his lowest mark of the season. With the team appearing to opt for Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown in the majority of three-wide receiver sets, Sharpe's usage is likely to continue to decline.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Remember when Sharpe opened the 2016 season in a starting role as a rookie? Since then Sharpe has tumbled down the depth chart and he's now opening the 2018 season as nothing more than the No. 5 or 6 receiving option behind Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor, not to mention tight ends Delanie Walker and possibly Jonnu Smith. This spells trouble for his prospects ahead of the 2018 season, as the volume is simply unlikely to be there for Sharpe to be a worthwhile fantasy asset. With that said, the University of Massachusetts product is now fully recovered from the stress fracture that wiped away his entire 2017 campaign, and Sharpe could eventually benefit from the fact that Matthews has only played a full 16-game season twice in his six-year career.
Sharpe started from the get-go after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, but he turned that opportunity into just 41 catches for 522 yards and two touchdowns. The Titans signed Eric Decker and used the fifth and 72nd overall picks on wide receivers, so Sharpe could fall as low as fifth on the depth chart. While he lacks the measurables to be elite at this level, Sharpe's crisp route running and strong hands should make him a reliable depth receiver for an improving Marcus Mariota.
While the Titans are deep at wide receiver, they don't necessarily have clear-cut starters who have separated themselves from the pack. Sharpe was incredibly productive with 196 receptions for 2,600 yards and 12 touchdowns over his last two seasons at Massachusetts, and the fifth-rounder has turned heads in earning some first-team reps in camp. Still, the rookie has to beat out a bevy of more experienced options if he wants to make an impact when the games actually start to count.
