Titans | Marcus Mariota's accuracy helping WRs

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:01:30 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will help make the receivers more dynamic because of his "unbelievable accuracy," according to WR Harry Douglas. "If you have an accurate quarterback, it allows us to get more yards after that catch," Douglas said.

Fantasy Tip: A successful year from Mariota will undoubtedly lead to a boost in the production for Tennessee's receivers. However, it remains to be seen what the pecking order will be and which receiver will become Mariota's go-to option. Kendall Wright and tight end Delanie Walker are the safest bets and should be drafted in all formats, but Justin Hunter and Dorial Green-Beckham also have some late-round upside.

Titans | Marcus Mariota contract update

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota's rookie deal is not being held up because of a supposed clause that would forbid him from surfing, according to a source. Mariota has not signed his contract yet due to differences in contract language, according Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota will get a deal done eventually. He's expected to start immediately for the Titans and should be drafted as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Titans | GM not worried about Marcus Mariota

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:55:27 -0700

Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster told media he would not mind if QB Marcus Mariota missed a few days of training camp and that it would not be a big deal if he held out. There is a piece of language in the contract holding up what should be a four-year deal worth $21 million.

Fantasy Tip: There are five weeks until training camp starts, so do not expect this to be a big issue. Mariota should be ready as a QB2 at the start of the season.

Titans | Marcus Mariota may not run as often

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 12:00:52 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will be allowed to run at times this season in order to keep opponents on their heels, but head coach Ken Whisenhunt may want to limit Mariota's runs so he can avoid injury. "The league does a good job trying to protect quarterbacks, but any time a quarterback takes off with the ball there's a risk," Whisenhunt said. "Then again, anytime anyone has the ball there's a risk, so I don't think you can get too caught up in it. You just have to be smart. Obviously you don't want him having 30 carries a game because then you really increase that risk."

Fantasy Tip: Mariota likely will enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job. Mariota has some added fantasy value because of his ability to run but still should not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback this season.

Titans | Marcus Mariota deal being held up

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 18:01:10 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is projected to receive a $21 million deal over four years which will be guaranteed by the team. However, he remains the only unsigned first-round draft pick due to a delay finalizing the deal due to a disagreement over offset language.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to start, and the two sides have five weeks to hammer out a deal. Once he is in the mix he will be a decent QB2 for fantasy owners, and he could emerge as a low-end QB1 by season's end if he makes a smooth transition from college to the pros.

Titans | Marcus Mariota ready for camp

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:29:28 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said he has been working on learning the playbook and is ready for whatever head coach Ken Whisenhunt asks him to do during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota should enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job and should win the competition as long as he does not struggle during the preseason. Mariota likely will not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper fantasy leagues this season.

Titans | Marcus Mariota not worried about deal

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:12:46 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said he is not worried about his contract situation even though he is only first-round draft pick unsigned at the moment. The two sides do not appear to be close to a deal at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota still has around five weeks to agree to a deal, so he should report for the start of training camp in July. Mariota likely will be the starting quarterback for the Titans this season but should only be seen as a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues this season.

Titans | Marcus Mariota last 1st-rounder unsigned

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 15:20:28 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is the only unsigned first-round draft pick as of Friday, June 19. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean said a deal will get done and that there's plenty of time to do so before training camp commences.

Fantasy Tip: There hasn't really been any indication as to why it's taking so long to get a deal done. He's expected to start right away in his rookie year and has impressed this offseason, but he should still be regarded as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Titans | Marcus Mariota showing nice accuracy

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 10:37:17 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has received nothing but rave reviews during the team's offseason workouts, and wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson was the latest to praise the young quarterback, saying "he is deadly accurate." "No. 1, it's his accuracy. No. 2, he's come in and grasped the offense. And No. 3 is the way the guys respond to him, the way he's able to go in that huddle and take control," Jefferson said. Mariota is developing a rapport with all of the team's receivers during workouts, and the wideouts love working with him.

Fantasy Tip: Take all of the offseason praise on the rookie with a grain of salt. Most top-tier athletes look great without pads during non-contact drills. It's promising for Mariota, who many believe will struggled to adapt to a pro-style offense coming from a spread attack in college. Regardless of how good he looks now, he's sure to have big ups and downs in his rookie season. The offseason praise shouldn't convince you to value him as anything more than a weak QB2 in 2015.

Titans | Marcus Mariota to run shotgun

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 15:02:32 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will have his transition to the NFL helped along by joining a Titans team that ranked sixth in the league in snaps out of the shotgun in 2014. Titans quarterbacks coach John McNulty said the team would prefer to operate from the shotgun formation "probably 50 or 60" percent of the time in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota excelled in the spread offense out of the shotgun formation at Oregon, and the Titans seem to want to use a similar system. Mariota should be able to stay healthier, and he'll be able to use his mobility this season. If both those cases materialize, Mariota could emerge as a FantasyScore option or a bye-week stream option later in the season.
