Titans | Justin Hunter on outside looking in?

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 21:54:24 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is not projected to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Paul Kuharsky.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter has a ton of size, and he seems a natural for effectiveness in the red zone, but the light just hasn't gone on for him. Perhaps a change of scenery might do him some good. Avoid for fantasy purposes for now.

Titans | DGB, Hunter unimpressive in opener

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 16:38:48 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham and WR Justin Hunter were slapped with an "inconsistent" tag when head coach Mike Mularkey was asked about their performance in the preseason opener.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming Andre Johnson sticks as a veteran mentor of sorts for Tennessee's young receivers, Hunter could be looking at his last Titans' camp. Green-Beckham could be as low as fifth on the depth chart behind Rishard Matthews, Tajae Sharpe, Kendall Wright and Johnson if he doesn't pick it up. Neither Green-Beckham nor Hunter is worth an investment at the moment in fantasy.

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 17:24:44 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is unlikely to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Paul Kuharsky, and Kuharsky believes WR Tre McBride could be the beneficiary and secure a spot.

Titans | Two Titans receivers inconsistent

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 14:35:55 -0700

Tennessee Titans WRs Dorial Green-Beckham and Justin Hunter have been inconsistent so far in training camp, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. He wants to see them make more plays.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter is still a non-factor in the fantasy realm. DGB needs to step up, though, if he wants to perform better than a WR4. The second-year receiver's fantasy value has fluctuated since last season ended, but he should be selected in low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 range for now.

Titans | Harry Douglas could be cut

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:25:23 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Harry Douglas is not a lock to make the 53-man roster, according to Jim Wyatt of titansonline.com. WRs Justin Hunter and Tre McBride will also be battling for a spot.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas was a better fantasy option in his days with the Atlanta Falcons. The fact that he may not make the team is telling as to his fantasy value. He can probably be avoided even if he does make the final roster, since he'll be Tennessee's WR5 at best.

Titans | Justin Hunter's roster spot safe?

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 21:40:45 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter will likely make the 53-man roster because of his athleticism and potential, according to beat writer Terry McCormick.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter's physical gifts have yet to translate into consistent production on the field. Assuming he makes the roster, he still needs to show he can provide useful numbers before he is worth owning.

Titans | Justin Hunter needs to step up

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 13:31:04 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter said he needs to take his production to another level during training camp if he wants to make the 53-man roster "I am definitely going to have to bring it in training camp. There's a lot of competition, a lot of people fighting for positions and things like that. You can't slack off because another guy is coming for your spot. I have to keep grinding," Hunter said.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter will have to compete for a roster spot during training camp, so the preseason games will be important for him. He should be able to find a job if he is released by the Titans but likely will not have much fantasy value no matter where he plays.

Titans | Justin Hunter fighting for a spot

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 23:07:43 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is entering the fourth and final season of his rookie contract. He has yet to record 30 catches or more than 500 yards receiving in a season, and each of his past two years have been cut short by injury. It's likely he'll be fighting for the No. 5 receiver job with WR Harry Douglas.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter, a former second-round draft pick, has been a huge disappointment for the Titans. He has the size and speed for this league, but he cannot seem to achieve any level of consistency. Fantasy owners will want to avoid him on draft day.

Titans | Tajae Sharpe passes Green-Beckham

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 23:39:07 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe has passed WR Dorial Green-Beckham and WR Justin Hunter on the depth chart as Sharpe worked with the first-team in practice Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Sharpe is in the lead for the third receiver spot, but the designation speaks more to the disappointment that DGB has been. Sharpe is a WR5 flyer in fantasy and someone to keep an eye on in camp. Green-Beckham remains a high-risk, high-reward target on draft day.

Titans | HC challenges Justin Hunter

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 20:42:36 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter met with head coach Mike Mularkey before practice Wednesday, June 1, and the head man challenged him. "I am asking him to step up and be more aggressive about it," Mularkey said. "To get up at the line and look at the guy across from him and tell him: 'You can't cover me.' He just needs more confidence in his body language, and everything about him. He has so much talent, he just has to believe he has the talent."

Fantasy Tip: Hunter has a big frame and has shown glimpses of brilliance in preseason games, making him look like a big-time sleeper for fantasy owners heading into draft day. However, he has been unable to carry over the momentum into the regular season, and injuries have also played a big part in derailing him. Perhaps he is just a late bloomer, but he remains nothing more than a late-round flier at this point.
