Titans | Marcus Mariota shines in no-huddle offense

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 10:11:51 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said the no-huddle offense is comfortable for him because of his experience operating it last season and during college. Mariota complete all six of his passing attempts, including a 21-yard touchdown pass to WR Harry Douglas during an 81-yard drive utilizing the no-huddle offense against the Carolina Panthers Saturday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota boasts plenty of upside and could emerge as a weekly starting quarterback this season. His ability to pad his fantasy points on the ground is a nice bonus, too. However, he likely won't be the most reliable week-to-week option, so he might be best utilized as a streaming option in favorable matchups. He's best viewed as a late-round target for those who wait at the position.

Titans | Tajae Sharpe has earned trust of team

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 17:18:16 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe has already gained the trust of QB Marcus Mariota and the coaching staff, according to TitansOnline.com senior writer Jim Wyatt.

Fantasy Tip: In case we needed evidence of said trust, Sharpe needed only three drives with Mariota against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday to roll up six catches and 68 yards. He is unlikely to be a big-play threat, but his advanced route-running chops help explain why he led FBS last season with 111 receptions at Massachusetts and are a key reason why he has impressed so quickly in Tennessee. He's well worth a late pick in fantasy as a WR5 with some upside.

Titans | Marcus Mariota mostly sharp against Carolina

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 15:11:14 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota went 9-for-10 for 104 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, Aug. 20. He added 13 yards on the ground before giving way to QB Matt Cassel early in the second quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota threw a questionable ball that was picked off by Bene Benwikere on the first drive, but he was otherwise flawless, routinely hooking up with rising undrafted free agent Tajae Sharpe during their three drives together. Last year's No. 2 overall pick is 14-for-15 in exhibition play and should be considered as a high-upside QB2 given his efficiency and ability to generate fantasy points with his feet.

Titans | Marcus Mariota sharp in limited duty

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 21:43:13 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed all five of his pass attempts for 45 yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 13, against the San Diego Chargers. He played three series before checking out.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota has plenty of athleticism and upside heading into 2016, and he has a much better receiving corps and running game than his rookie season. Still, he should be viewed more as a QB2 in fantasy football in 2016 until further notice.

Titans | Marcus Mariota has rough day

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 09:54:06 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota struggled in the Monday, Aug. 8, scrimmage by throwing an interception and being flagged for a false start. "It's unacceptable, my play today," Mariota said. "I can't be turning the ball over like that. I've got to be putting these guys in better situations. But all in all I'm glad we were able to come out and finish the drives that we did, and we had a pretty good red zone (drill) as well."

Fantasy Tip: He's a second-year quarterback, and mistakes will happen. Mariota's athleticism alone makes him a possible matchup play and a viable backup choice in 2016.

Titans | Marcus Mariota to be turned loose

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 18:29:53 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota won't have a set number of run plays per game, according to head coach Mike Mularkey, but Mularkey said he wants Mariota's running ability to be a threat to opposing defenses.

Fantasy Tip: If Mariota starts running the ball more, his fantasy value could be pushed to another level. For now, consider him a QB2 with tons of upside.

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 20:23:45 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota was praised for his ability to move quickly through his progressions during practice Saturday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota has a ton of upside entering his second season. He might not reach QB1 status just yet, but draft him as a high-end fantasy backup.

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.
