We have been hyping the kid up all week, so you knew this one was coming. Tanner played extremely well against the Chiefs last week, bringing in three receptions for 59 yards on five targets.

Tanner is not a name many were paying attention to after he went down with an injury last year, but he is firmly back on everyone’s radar right now.

There is a huge competition going down at wide receiver, but the coaching staff will not forget what Tanner did last year. Should he continue to play at a high level and stay healthy, Tanner has the talent to sneak on the roster. Keep an eye out.
