Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Hakeem Nicks signed a one-year deal to join the team Friday, April 24. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed. The Titans are still expected to take a receiver in this year's draft.

Fantasy Tip: Nicks, despite playing in 16 games in 2014, had just 38 catches for 405 yards and four touchdowns as he was buried on the Colts' depth chart. But he also didn't display breakaway speed and failed to separate from defenders. In Tennessee, he figures to compete for the No. 3 receiver job with Harry Douglas. The QB situation in Tennessee also isn't favorable for a receiver nearing the end of the line. Nicks shouldn't be drafted in standard fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Wright saw some of his stats drop from 2013 to 2014, but he still had a decent season with 57 receptions, 715 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 14 games. Wright could be a middle- to late-round option in most drafts next season.

Florida State QB Jameis Winston would be "in play" for the Tennessee Titans at No. 2 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass on him with the first overall selection, according to a source. The Titans feel Winston "checks out" after they've done extensive homework on the prospect, and Tennessee feels the pending lawsuit against Winston wouldn't impact their decision to select him. Winston made a great impression when he met with the team April 13.
Fantasy Tip: It'd be a bit of a surprise if the Bucs passed on Winston, but anything can happen in the draft. Either way, Winston will likely be competing for a starting gig in his maiden voyage in training camp this summer. He's the most pro-ready QB in this draft, but he'll still face many challenges and ups and downs if he's starting right out of the gate.

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was applauded by TE Delanie Walker for recently organizing practice sessions. Walker said he's excited about Mettenberger showing leadership and initiative, adding that Mettenberger could be the franchise quarterback the Titans need.
Fantasy Tip: It's one thing to show leadership, it's another to win games. Mettenberger still has a lot to prove before he's worthy of being considered a franchise quarterback or a starting fantasy quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger is currently considered the starting quarterback for the Titans, but it is not known if the team will add a quarterback during the draft. Mettenberger played well at times this past season but likely will not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback most weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett posted one of the swiftest 40 times at the NFL Scouting Combine and has a chance to go in the first couple of rounds of the NFL Draft. He's likely a late-round flyer in traditional leagues, but that could improve in the right situation.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is under contract for one more season, and he has expressed a desire to play out his deal. However, the Chargers might be interested in trading up to draft University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with the No. 2 pick currently held by the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee head coach Ken Whisenhunt was the Chargers offensive coordinator in 2013, and offensive coordinator Jason Michael was on the San Diego staff, too.
Fantasy Tip: Rivers has expressed an interest in staying in Southern California, but Nashville might be an attractive landing spot since he is an Alabama native. Either way, Rivers is expected to start somewhere, and he is coming off a nice season. He remains a Top 12 fantasy option at his position.
