Titans | Marcus Mariota in elite company

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 09:16:27 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been a top-five quarterback the last five weeks in standard fantasy leagues. He has thrown for 1,394 yards and 14 touchdowns to only three interceptions with 111 rushing yards and one rushing score in five games.

Fantasy Tip: The matchups haven't been stifling, but he hasn't seen paper-thin fronts during the stretch either. He has a rematch against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1. He was 22-for-37 (59.5%) for 232 yards and two scores against them in Week 7. The Colts present a decent matchup for him this week.

Titans | Marcus Mariota seeking franchise history

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 15:35:36 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has thrown multiple touchdown passes in six consecutive games, tying him with former QB Warren Moon for the longest such streak in franchise history. Moon accomplished the feat in 1987.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota has been as hot as any quarterback in the league over the past several weeks, and with a tasty matchup on tap against the Colts in Week 11, he has a very good chance of surpassing Moon for the franchise record. He's quickly becoming a perennial QB1 in all leagues, being one of the few true dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL.

Titans | Marcus Mariota mistake-free in red zone

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 09:02:58 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has posted a 65.4 completion percentage and taken only two sacks while throwing for 30 touchdowns versus no interceptions in the red zone since entering the league in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota, who is riding a six-game streak with multiple touchdown throws, has been so efficient as a passer lately he's only needed to run for 47 yards over the last four games. Last year's No. 2 overall pick has certainly been helped by one of the best offensive lines and rushing attacks in the league this year, but there is little doubt he has emerged as an every-week starter in fantasy. Look for the good times to keep rolling in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Titans | Marcus Mariota tosses four TDs

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 16:56:21 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 19 of his 26 pass attempts for 295 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Green Bay Packers. He also ran four times for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota picked on a poor and banged up Green Bay secondary, and he'll have another favorable matchup in Week 11 on the road against the defensively challenged Indianapolis Colts.

Titans | Marcus Mariota expected to be fine

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 20:02:02 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (ankle) does not appear on the team's injury report this week, and he was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9, after suffering a minor ankle injury in the Week 9 loss in San Diego.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to be ready to face the Green Bay Packers. He is a solid streaming option in most fantasy leagues this week if you need a bye-week replacement, as the Packers secondary is awfully banged up.

Titans | Marcus Mariota tosses three touchdowns

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 22:46:56 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 27 of his 43 pass attempts for 313 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 9 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also ran three times for 14 yards with a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota was a solid streaming option this week, and he is worth using again in Week 10 against a beat up Green Bay Packers secondary when they visit Nashville.

Titans | Efficient night for Marcus Mariota

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 21:12:17 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 18 of his 22 pass attempts for 270 yards and two touchdowns and had three carries for 11 yards in a 36-22 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota has now registered four straight multi-touchdown games, and he is proving to be a potential QB1 against the right matchups. At the very least, he is a must-own fantasy backup.

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:04:06 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw 22-for-37 for 232 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Oct. 23, in a 34-26 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota did not allow an interception, which is very good news, and his overall numbers were decent. Mariota continues to have a good sophomore season at QB.

Titans | Marcus Mariota strong in win

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 14:31:29 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw for 284 yards and three touchdowns in a 28-26 win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is showing no signs of a second-year slump as the Titans are now 3-3 after going 3-13 last season. He shouldn't be a QB1 just yet because of struggles against some teams, but Mariota is a decent option.

Titans | Marcus Mariota effective vs. Miami

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 13:19:48 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota was 20-for-29 for 163 yards and three touchdowns Sunday, Oct. 9, in a win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Yardage leagues were hurt somewhat by Mariota's performance, but scoring leagues saw benefit. Mariota was fairly effective, and this may be a case where less is better for the second-year QB.

Titans | Marcus Mariota misfiring

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 07:01:33 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has connected on 41 of 80 targets to wide receivers this season. Head coach Mike Mularkey said he plans to devote more practice time toward bettering the chemistry between Mariota and the wide receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is likely a backup in most fantasy settings, but his dual threat could have him in your lineup in certain matchups if he irons things out.

Titans | Precision lacking for Titans

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 17:13:10 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has struggled so far this year with new wide receivers. "I think [the chemistry] will improve, I'm almost ensuring that it will improve," head coach Mike Mularkey said. Mularkey said the receivers need to run more precise routes, while Mariota must be more accurate and less hesitant. "We've got to just be more precise outside, and I think you'll see better production in the passing game."

Fantasy Tip: Tennessee's passing game has been gruesomely underwhelming through the first four games of the season. Delanie Walker and DeMarco Murray have produced more than any receiver yet. Tajae Sharpe and Rishard Matthews are still the top receivers for Tennessee, but it's difficult to start either of them until they can develop a better rapport with Mariota.

Titans | Another egg laying for Marcus Mariota

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 17:38:21 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 13 of his 29 pass attempts for 202 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 4 game against the Houston Texans. He also ran four times for 20 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota had Delanie Walker back from injury, but he still struggled for a second straight week with zero touchdown strikes. He is only worth using as an emergency fantasy option or bye-week replacement.

Titans | Marcus Mariota good against AFC South

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:01:14 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has 866 passing yards, five touchdowns, 141 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in his last three games against AFC South teams.

Fantasy Tip: He faces a Houston Texans defense without Brian Cushing (knee) and J.J. Watt (back) this week. Mariota had a poor Week 3, but if you're an Aaron Rodgers owner that has to cover a bye week, he's a pretty solid option.

Titans | Marcus Mariota struggles in loss

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 20:14:51 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 17 of his 33 pass attempts for 214 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. He also ran three times for 22 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota had at least two passing touchdowns in each of his first two games, but he was awful in this one and really missed the injured Delanie Walker, his go-to receiver. Mariota is just too inconsistent to rely upon in most fantasy leagues unless using him as a bye-week replacement.

Titans | Marcus Mariota solid in win

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 13:36:25 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 25 of 33 attempts for 238 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Detroit Lions Sunday, Sept. 18. He ran twice for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Solid but unspectacular, Mariota's fourth-down touchdown pass to Andre Johnson that proved to be the game winner helped his stats. It wasn't a great day for him overall, but it should be better in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders in Tennessee. He's a fringe QB1.

Titans | Rishard Matthews working on timing

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 20:18:57 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews said he and QB Marcus Mariota missed a couple of opportunities in Week 1, but offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said he expects their timing to improve.

Fantasy Tip: Tajae Sharpe looks to be Mariota's early favorite in the passing game, but Matthews is worth stashing for at least a few weeks to see how his role develops.

Titans | Marcus Mariota might play Thursday

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 21:21:06 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota might play a series against the Miami Dolphins in the preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 1, head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota has a solid cadre of receivers and he is a high-end QB2 in standard fantasy formats with QB1 potential, especially since he is bit of a dual threat.

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.

Titans | Marcus Mariota making quick reads

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.

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.

Titans | Marcus Mariota encouraged to run

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 10:20:59 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will be encouraged to run more in his sophomore season by head coach Mike Mularkey.

"Designed runs for the quarterback, and my feelings are he can protect himself much better running the football than he can standing in the pocket, and you've seen it over time. We're not going to run him like they run Cam Newton with some of these designed counter plays and things up the middle that are gonna expose him by any means, but I think he's such a threat in the run game for defenses," Mularkey said.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota looked respectable in his rookie season without many weapons around him, and he threw for 2,818 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 12 games. He has plenty of upside in the NFL and his ability to use his legs is an added bonus. Consider him an attractive backup fantasy QB next year.

Titans | Marcus Mariota praised by Kurt Warner

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 18:31:52 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota was praised by retired QB Kurt Warner. "And I thought he exceeded a lot of expectations," Warner said. "There were things he did really well and made some great decision. There's a lot of things he can build off of, a lot to like."

Fantasy Tip: Although an injury ended Mariota's season early, he showed flashes of his upside throughout his rooked campaign. It remains to be seen how big of a jump he will make as a sophomore, but he is worth drafting as a mid-range QB2 in 2016 for his potential alone.

Titans | Balanced offense for Titans?

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 14:24:04 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will lead what new offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie wants to be a balanced offense next season. Robiskie said the Titans will try to have a balance of run and pass, but that the run-pass ratio would be determined game by game. The new coordinator also said he expects Mariota to make a smooth transition into a redesigned offense, which he promised not to complicate too much for his sophomore quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota held his own en route to a solid rookie season last year, but it's Robiskie's job to get some semblance of a running game going in Tennessee. Antonio Andrews, Bishop Sankey and David Cobb were far from impressive on the ground, forcing Mariota to put the team on his shoulders all too often. Even with a decent rookie season, Mariota shouldn't be considered a weekly starting fantasy quarterback just yet.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) took some dropbacks at less than full speed Monday, Dec. 28, but probably will not be able to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17. The team will monitor Mariota's status during practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is dealing with a medial collateral ligament injury and probably will not play, but owners should still keep an eye out on the situation. Zach Mettenberger would start if Mariota is ruled out but is not a strong fantasy option for owners.
