2024 Fantasy Football Rookie Roundup: The Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans NFL Draft

The Titans did a hard reset on their offense this offseason, letting Derrick Henry & Ryan Tannehill leave to the Ravens and lands unknown, respectively. They added Tony Pollard and Calvin Ridley in free agency, suddenly giving Will Levis(?!) a ton of players at his disposal. Levis is set up for success, despite his talent level precluding success. But, what of the one fantasy football-eligible player they took in the draft? What of Jha’Quan Jackson? Let’s find out.


Round Pick Player Pos College
1 7 JC Latham OT Alabama
2 38 T’Vondre Sweat DT Texas
4 106 Cedric Gray LB UNC
5 146 Jarvis Brownlee, Jr. CB Louisville
6 182 Jha’Quan Jackson WR Tulane
7 242 James Williams S Miami
7 252 Jaylen Harrell EDGE Michigan

Round 6, Pick 182 Overall: Jha’Quan Jackson, Wide Receiver, Tulane (5’9” 188 lbs)


Jackson will primarily be a return man in the NFL, which rarely overlaps with fantasy football relevance. It feels perfunctory to do the rest of this evaluation, but here we go: he’s a speed threat. That’s it, he’s your classic field-stretching receiver, who exists mostly to make life easier for those with low average depth of target. He’s a tool, not a weapon, despite getting carries at the college level.

That isn’t to say that he doesn’t have talent, he’s a good field stretcher, I just am not quite sure what that skillset will bring to a fantasy football squad. He wasn’t even a top-two weapon in college, where Tulane used him as a third receiver… Tulane. He finished behind Chris Brazell II and Lawrence Keys III in receiving yards, and behind four folks in receptions. He is a return man, first and foremost.

2024 Opportunity:

The Tennessee Titans suddenly have a good set of weapons. They had DeAndre Hopkins and Chig Okonkwo, and they added Calvin Ridley this offseason. Both Tyjae Spears and Tony Pollard are pass-catchers out of the backfield, and even Treylon Burks might come in from the cold! There are simply too many better players on the Titans for this to be a situation where Jackson falls backward into 65+ targets.

The Titans simply do not use their depth that way. Granted, they have a Zac Taylor disciple running the offense now (Brian Callahan), so you would expect more three-WR sets. Still, WR2-4 combined for 110 targets last season.

2024 Fantasy Football Outlook:

He’s primarily going to be a return man, so you can return any ideas that he would be fantasy-relevant to wherever you got them.
