Titans | Shonn Greene featured in Week 15

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 07:44:11 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene had a season-high 16 carries for 50 yards Sunday, Dec. 14. Greene had 16 carries in the previous five games combined. RB Bishop Sankey had just three carries for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: We still expect Sankey to see considerable work in the final two games, but he's not a sure thing on FantasyScore.

Titans | Shonn Greene out Sunday

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 08:18:13 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene is inactive Sunday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Bishop Sankey ($4,000; 8.0% of your cap) is a sneaky good play on FantasyScore today against the New York Giants. Greene is a healthy scratch, which leads us to believe Sankey is the guy the rest of the season.

Titans | Shonn Greene to work in base sets

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 20:07:54 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene has seen few carries with the team working out of three-wide personnel sets. The Titans have rushed the ball 184 times this season, with 92 carries in three-wide sets. Greene has been the ball carrier just seven times in those 92 plays. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday, Nov. 5, that he hopes the team is running well out of base sets, which will create more chances for Greene.

Fantasy Tip: Greene is missed two games last month due to a hamstring injury, and he was limited to just two snaps in his return last weekend. FantasyScore owners will want to steer far clear of him, regardless of price, unless Bishop Sankey goes down to a long-term injury.

Titans | Shonn Greene arrested

Sat, 25 Oct 2014 08:39:19 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene was arrested Friday, Oct. 24, and charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk.

Fantasy Tip: Greene's status for Week 8 is uncertain because of the incident, so owners should check the inactive list to see if he is playing. Bishop Sankey would receive a boost in value if Greene sits, and could be a flex option on FantasyScore at $4,400.

Titans | Shonn Greene probable

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 12:35:17 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as probable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Greene probably will share time with Bishop Sankey during the game, which will cut into Sankey's value. Greene costs $3,100 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider not using him this week. Sankey costs $4,400 and could be a flex option for owners.

Titans | Shonn Greene limited again

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 14:41:57 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Greene will likely be questionable for Week 8 against the Houston Texans. Bishop Sankey ($4,400) has become the team's leading back with Greene beat up, and that's likely to continue even if Greene returns. Greene isn't a sexy pick at FantasyScore, even at a reduced cost of $3,100 (6.2% of cap).

Titans | Shonn Greene doesn't do all drills

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:11:13 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Greene didn't play last week and could be questionable in Week 8 against the Houston Texans. Even at a FantasyScore price of $3,100 (6.2% of cap), he isn't an attractive option. Bishop Sankey ($4,400) has become the main back, but he hasn't impressed, and the matchup against the Texans isn't ideal.

Titans | Shonn Greene ruled out

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:26:45 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bishop Sankey figures to see the majority of carries in Greene's absence with Dexter McCluster playing more of a pass-catching role. They are priced at $4,500 and $3,400, respectively, on FantasyScore this week.

Titans | Shonn Greene out again

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:02:37 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Greene is cheap ($3,300; 6.6% of cap), but he's not expected to play against the Washington Redskins, and you shouldn't consider him for your FantasyScore lineups.

Titans | Shonn Greene sits

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:48:33 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Titans | Shonn Greene hopes to return next week

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 12:11:41 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) said he hopes he can return to practice next week and be ready to play Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Greene has been no better than lackluster this year and isn't worth starting even when he comes back unless you're desperate for a flex position.

Titans | Shonn Greene doubtful

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 11:21:01 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) missed practice again Friday, Oct. 10, and is listed as doubtful for Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Bishop Sankey should benefit in a big way against a leaky Jaguars defense with increased carries. Sankey costs only $5,500 (11.0% of cap) at FantasyScore.

Titans | Shonn Greene out Thursday

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 15:01:35 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Greene's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) Week 6 status is unknown, making him an unappealing option in FantasyScore contests. Bishop Sankey ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) and Dexter McCluster ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) would see an uptick in carries and targets and increased value, if Greene is out. Sweetening the pot, the Titans host the generous Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6.

Titans | Shonn Greene could miss Week 6

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 12:54:31 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) said the hamstring he injured during practice Wednesday, Oct. 8, is pretty sore. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he is not sure if Greene will be able to play in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster likely would handle the running back duties if Greene is not able to play. Sankey costs $5,500 on FantasyScore, while McCluster costs $3,400 and both could be flex options if Greene is out.

Titans | Shonn Greene limited

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 14:42:04 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: While this will need to be monitored as the week moves on, Greene should still be ready to play on Sunday, and is still worth a look in FantasyScore even with Bishop Sankey likely to see his role increased.

Titans | Shonn Greene starts

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 10:07:29 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene started the team's Week 5 game Sunday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Rookie Bishop Sankey is expected to see his role increase in the coming weeks and ultimately become the starting back. However, Green will continue to have some value as long as he is starting and is receiving carries around the goal line.

Titans | Shonn Greene leads the backfield

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 19:12:12 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene received a team-high 15 carries in Week 1 and led the team with 71 rushing yards.

Fantasy Tip: Rookie Bishop Sankey is supposed to take over as the team's main back at some point this season, but Greene was the clear leader in the backfield in Week 1. He should find plenty of running lanes against Dallas in Week 2, and he is worth considering at his $5,000 salary (10% of cap) in FantasyScore.

Titans | Shonn Greene meets weight

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 05:58:39 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene lost five to 10 pounds to meet the team's weight goal after he missed most of camp due to knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Greene will likely see short-yardage and goal line carries in the running back committee. He's an RB5 with TD-only upside.

Titans | Shonn Greene good to go

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:52:01 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is ready for training camp after missing time in the offseason due to a right knee injury, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Greene would be a part of an expected split in the backfield that'll also include rookie Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster. Greene is boring but could be serviceable in short-yardage situations, which makes him a fantasy RB5 at least. Sankey has the best chance to stake a claim to the No. 1 spot, which could help decrease his price to a reasonable RB3 in drafts. McCluster could be a surprisingly effective PPR depth grab.

Titans | Shonn Greene no lock to make roster

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 21:14:38 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) could be cut if his injured right knee continues to prevent him from working out this offseason, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. Wyatt believes the team will opt to save the $2.3 million it owes Greene if he won't be able to contribute.

Titans | Shonn Greene to be ready for training camp

Mon, 12 May 2014 10:16:34 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp this summer after recently having right knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming Greene is healthy entering the regular season, he should receive the majority of carries in this backfield, but it remains to be seen how they'll use Dexter McCluster, and rook Bishop Sankey has the goods to eventually become the main back in Tennessee.

Titans | Shonn Greene fine with RB committee

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 20:44:30 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene said he will be fine with being part of a running back committee because it will allow the players to stay fresh. "Nowadays it's not just one back getting the job done, it's done by committee. I take that as a good thing, because it keeps guys fresh, it keeps guys healthy, no one takes a beating like you once did when you had one back, when you used a [workhorse] back. So I welcome all those guys on the roster to come help the team out so we can get where we need to be," Greene said.

Titans | Chris Johnson to be released

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 09:02:02 -0700

The Tennessee Titans plan on releasing RB Chris Johnson Friday, April 4, according to sources. He averaged a career-worst 3.9 yards per carry in 2013 and didn't have a run longer than 30 yards. Johnson is scheduled to make $8 million in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will latch on with a team somewhere, but he's unlikely to be a lead back. Expect him to sign to form a running back tandem wherever he goes. In his absence, the Titans have a backfield that consists of Shonn Greene and the versatile Dexter McCluster. Expect Tennessee to address their RB situation in the draft, as well.

Titans | John Skelton No. 3

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 10:08:43 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB John Skelton will serve as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Rusty Smith. Skelton isn't expected to be active in Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders. "We thought we had a need just because of the way quarterbacks get hurt," head coach Mike Munchak said. "Rusty will go in if anything happens to Fitz, but this allows us to have somebody else here learning our offense in case we have another injury." The Titans would likely run a wildcat offense with RBs Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene taking snaps if both Fitzpatrick and Smith are injured.

Titans | Shonn Greene's touches to go up?

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 14:18:54 -0700

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said RB Shonn Greene is expected to be in the 15-carry range moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly if Greene will approach 15 carries per game but regardless, it looks like the Titans plan to involve Greene much more moving forward. This is bad news for Chris Johnson owners. Greene will become more than just a handcuff to Johnson if this plan is stuck to by the Titans.

There is a chance that Locker could return in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but it is unlikely. RB Shonn Greene (knee) is also expected to ramp up his activities this week. Locker isn't being ruled out this weekend, but the more likely scenario is that he returns after the team's Week 8 bye.
