Titans | Marcus Mariota to work on deal

Sun, 17 May 2015 10:58:06 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is scheduled to begin contract talks with the team Monday, May 18, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota has a good chance of winning the starting quarterback job over Zach Mettenberger during training camp. Even if he starts, Mariota is probably not more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2015.

Titans | Dorial Green-Beckham connecting with QB

Fri, 15 May 2015 18:58:28 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham said he sent a text to QB Marcus Mariota right after he was drafted and is trying to become close with the quarterback in a hurry. "I told him, every time you're in the weight room, make sure you bring me," Green-Beckham said.

Fantasy Tip: Green-Beckham has elite size and athleticism, but it remains to be seen if he can put a troubled college career behind him and succeed in the NFL. Still, his potential makes him worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Titans | Marcus Mariota comfortable under center

Fri, 15 May 2015 18:14:27 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said it was different being under center for the first time during rookie minicamp Friday, May 15, but added that he already feels comfortable in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to open the 2015 season as the starter, but there will likely be a lengthy adjustment period as he learns how to play in a pro-style offense. Consider him a low-end QB2, but he could make strides as the year goes on.

Titans | Marcus Mariota looking good so far

Fri, 15 May 2015 16:19:58 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota survived his first rookie minicamp and impressed the coaches with his understanding of the playbook, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Whisenhunt also doesn't think Mariota's smaller size will create a problem with him taking snaps under center after he participated in a spread offense in his college career. "I don't see that as a problem," Whisenhunt said of Mariota lining up under center. "He's put a lot of work in. He seems pretty good. I mean, until we get into a game and you get the A-gap blitzers in there or people are pressuring, you don't know how they are going to handle it."

Fantasy Tip: Mariota's strengths are his pure athleticism and smarts in the classroom, but will his undersized frame allow him to succeed in the NFL? It remains to be seen. What we do know is it'll be a work in progress in his rookie season, and plenty of growing pains are likely to come in 2015. Mariota is a low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues in his rookie season, with upside for more.

Titans | Defense will test Marcus Mariota

Fri, 15 May 2015 09:13:21 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will be tested by his defense in training camp as assistant head coach Dick LeBeau is under direction to throw everything at the rookie that he can. All indications are that Mariota will have to fail miserably to lose the starting job in the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: The team has said the goal is for Mariota to start as a rookie. He'll have to fend off Zach Mettenberger, but Mariota rates as a midrange QB2.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger to fight for job

Tue, 05 May 2015 10:56:09 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger, who is now the backup quarterback to QB Marcus Mariota, did not demand a trade and is adamant about going to training camp with a chance to compete against Mariota for the starting job, according to OT Taylor Lewan. Mettenberger took part in the team's voluntary workout program last Friday and Monday, May 4. Mettenberger was 0-6 in his starts last year as a rookie and threw for 1,412 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Lewan also said Mettenberger lost around 15 pounds this offseason and looks leaner and stronger.

Fantasy Tip: While Mettenberger isn't giving up and could wind up winning the job, it's all in the hands of Mariota now. It's his job to lose heading into Week 1, so Mettenberger won't be a viable fantasy option in fall drafts unless something drastic happens to Mariota.

Titans | TEN offense tailored to Marcus Mariota

Tue, 05 May 2015 10:34:35 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is having the playbook tailored to him after the Titans drafted him with the No. 2 overall pick last week, according to general manager Ruston Webster. "Our coaches have been working on a plan for quite some time now for Marcus," Webster said. "Really to adapting our offense to his skill set -- he has a special skill set. There's really not much he can't do from a physical standpoint and he's very bright. That combination is going to allow him to do his own adapting to the NFL game but our coaches have worked very hard on coming up with a system within our system for Marcus. I think it will work well."

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to be groomed in training camp this summer to be the Week 1 starter over Zach Mettenberger. It remains to be seen how effective Mariota can be while transitioning from a spread offense in college, but quarterback guru Ken Whisenhunt could make a big difference in helping Mariota excel early on. In any event, Mariota will have his ups and downs despite being extremely gifted physically and mentally. Consider him a low-end QB2 with potential for more in 2015.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger wants to compete

Fri, 01 May 2015 11:20:18 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger is not looking for a trade but does want the chance to compete with QB Marcus Mariota for the starting quarterback job, according to his agent.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger may receive the chance to compete for the job, but Mariota should be seen as the leading candidate at this time. Owners should watch the competition during training camp, but Mettenberger will not have any fantasy value if he is not the starter.

Titans | Tennessee plans to start Marcus Mariota

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 18:52:07 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is the planned starter from Day 1, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Titans will have to find a balance between Mariota's dual-threat ability and Whisenhunt's more traditional pro-style offense, and there will likely be some growing pains. Assuming Mariota ends up opening the season as the starter, consider him a low-end QB2 with some upside.

Titans | Marcus Mariota not likely to be traded

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 17:29:54 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is not expected to be traded after being selected with the No. 2 overall pick.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Mariota to come in and start for the Titans right away, as long as Zach Mettenberger is still in town. He needs time to acclimate to a new system and the change of pace at the NFL level. Mariota is more of a dynasty league/keeper league target at this point.
