Marquez Callaway leads Tennessee in catches and receiving yards, but he still hasn’t scored a single touchdown this season surprisingly. He’s been Jarrett Guarantano’s favorite target so far this year, but Jauan Jennings is also starting to get a lot more targets. He’s second on the team in catches and is tied with running back Ty Chandler for the most receiving touchdowns on the team with two.

Josh Palmer hasn’t caught a great deal of passes, but he’s made them count. He’s averaging an eye-popping 25.8 yards per reception and is second on the team in receiving yards despite only catching 11 passes.

Ty Chandler didn’t catch a pass until the Georgia game, and all nine of his receptions have come in Tennessee’s last two games.

Tennessee’s tight ends haven’t been involved a great deal in the passing game. Dominick Wood-Anderson caught a touchdown pass in the season opener, but that’s been the only score by a Tennessee tight end this season. He has just six other catches on the year, and Eli Wolf caught his first pass of the year against Auburn last weekend. Austin Pope, a tight end/fullback for the Vols, had that long 55-yard fourth down grab that would’ve been a score against Florida had he not fumbled out the back of the end zone.
