Titans | Marcus Mariota needs to hold onto ball

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 14:12:04 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota fumbled the ball 10 times in 2015, and the team lost six of those fumbles. Mariota said his ball security was something he wanted to work on this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota should play better in his second season as the Titans quarterback, but he will need to keep the ball when he is running. Mariota will have several weapons to work with in the passing game and likely will be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Titans | Marcus Mariota just wants to win

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 09:40:05 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said he will hand the ball off 40 times if that's what it takes to win. "That's what's important to me, to (give) us an opportunity to win," Mariota said. "Having those two workhorses back there should help us out."

Fantasy Tip: It's not concrete, but it's certainly evidence that the team plans to focus on the run with DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Murray could be a low-end RB1 if the offense pans out this way. Mariota still has some progressing to do, and the team looks like it's trying to not put the ball in his hands with the supporting cast he has in the backfield. He's a backup in fantasy. Henry is an RB4 flyer for now with some upside in TD-only leagues.

Titans | Marcus Mariota becoming a leader

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 13:30:32 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota appears to have a better grasp of the offense and has been a true leader during offseason workouts, according to DT Jurrell Casey.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota has received praise from various people this offseason and should post better numbers in 2016 since the offense has improved around him. Mariota should be a decent No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and probably will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

Titans | Coordinator impressed with Marcus Mariota

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:11:50 -0700

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said he has been impressed with what he has seen from QB Marcus Mariota on tape and during practice. Robiskie said Mariota has done a good job learning the offense that the coaching staff is installing.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota played well in his rookie season and finished the year with 2,818 passing yards and 19 touchdown passes. He also rushed for 252 yards and two touchdowns. Mariota should improve in his second year and will have plenty of weapons to work with on offense. He should be considered a solid No. 2 quarterback in most drafts but likely will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

Titans | Marcus Mariota can still improve

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 10:48:31 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is expected to improve his pocket awareness in 2016. Mariota was sacked 38 times in his rookie season -- the most of any quarterback who played in 12 or fewer games. "I've really emphasized getting rid of the ball instead of taking sacks," head coach Mike Mularkey said. Mariota has been told an incompletion is OK, and to throw the ball away and move on to the next down.

Mariota's knowledge of the offense is also expected to be improved. Mularkey has streamlined the offense for more simplicity.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota did have hit pitfalls in his rookie season last year, but he mostly impressed in the 12 games he played. He's already one of the better dual-threat quarterbacks in the league. He'll remain solidly in QB2 territory going into 2016.

Titans | Marcus Mariota weight update

Tue, 24 May 2016 16:02:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is up to 225 pounds this year compared to the 220 pounds he played at last season, not 210 pounds as previously reported.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Mariota's added weight, however small it may be, could result in more durability for Mariota, and perhaps more tucking of the football and running. He's one of the better dual-threat quarterbacks in the league and is safely in QB2 territory.

Titans | Marcus Mariota has added weight

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:19:46 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is up to 225 pounds from the 210 pounds he weighed last year. Mariota said he'd like to stay at 225 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably safe to assume that most of that added weight is muscular in nature. This could result in more durability for Mariota, and perhaps more tucking of the football and running. He's one of the better dual-threat quarterbacks in the league and is safely in QB2 territory.

Titans | Marcus Mariota comfortable with offense

Fri, 20 May 2016 18:36:16 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been more vocal this offseason, according to TE Delanie Walker, and he looks more comfortable with the offensive system and is making quicker decisions.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota can't be counted on as a starting fantasy quarterback just yet, but given his upside, he is an appealing QB2.

Titans | Dorial Green-Beckham a top receiver?

Sun, 27 Mar 2016 16:31:39 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham said he views himself as a No. 1 receiver. He also said he has been talking to QB Marcus Mariota and plans to do some informal work with Mariota before the official offseason programs begin April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Green-Beckham has the physical tools to be a dominant receiver, but he is purely an upside pick at this point. Draft him as a WR4 and hope he starts to realize his potential.

Titans | Rishard Matthews ready to work

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 16:58:25 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews said he and QB Marcus Mariota have already been talking about when to meet up and start running routes.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Matthews wants to establish some chemistry with Mariota as soon as possible. He showed some big-play ability with Miami last year, and if he emerges as Mariota's favorite target, Matthews could be a quality WR2 in 2016.
