Tennessee Titans news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 10 Oct 2015 06:57:39 -0700
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham has shown he can be a tough matchup for opponents and should be more involved in the offense as the season goes on, according to general manager Ruston Webster.
Fantasy Tip: Green-Beckham ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has caught only three passes this season but two of the passes have gone for touchdowns. Green-Beckham is probably not a great fantasy option at this point, but owners should keep an eye on him as a possible option in the future.

The Tennessee Titans and QB Marcus Mariota are averaging 15.2 yards per attempt on play-action passes this year, which is second-best in the NFL. Their running game has helped with this, averaging 126 yards per game and 4.2 yards per carry.
Fantasy Tip: Play-action plays for the Titans could continue to work against a Buffalo Bills secondary that has been beaten often so far in 2015. Consider Mariota ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) a decent value pick at QB coming off his bye week.

Tennessee Titans DT Sammie Hill (knee) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills. CB Cody Riggs (knee) and OG Chance Warmack (knee) are questionable, while CB Jason McCourty (groin) and LB Wesley Woodyard (non-injury) are probable. Hill did not practice Friday, Oct. 9. Riggs and Warmack were limited, while McCourty and Woodyard practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: He'll see plenty of pressure and blitzes from Rex Ryan's Buffalo Bills in Week 5, too. Mariota ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) will have his share of ups and downs in his rookie season, but this weekend probably isn't the time to get cute and play him as a sleeper on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: The Titans have lost two straight games, but Mariota looks like the real deal. He still has some work to do, but he should no longer be viewed as a backup fantasy quarterback. Mariota and the Titans have a bye in Week 4, however.

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham will continue to be eased into the offense, according to head coach Ken Wisenhunt. "I think the one thing you have to be careful about is overloading him, because right now he is on a good track. He is making progress and we are excited about seeing him make these plays, Wisenhunt said. "But if you think you can just put him in for 82 snaps, it is going to be a problem, so you just don't want to see him take a step back."
Fantasy Tip: There is an opening behind Kendall Wright on the Tennessee depth chart at wide receiver, and the smart money is on Green-Beckham forming an excellent one-two punch with Wright sooner than later. Green-Beckham owns all the intangibles to be a red-zone maven, and he is worth stashing in all seasonal leagues. Currently, he is a risky start because of his low-target volume, but the upside is there. With a Week 4 bye, Green-Beckham's role could increase quicker than expected, too.

Fantasy Tip: Wright rebounded from a disappointing Week 2 performance in which he only caught two passes for 17 yards. He will be the Titans' leading wide receiver as long as he is healthy, although Dorial Green-Beckham looks like he'll take away some red-zone opportunities. Wright should still be viewed as a WR2 in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Green-Beckham ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has caught a touchdown in back-to-back games, and while the rookie has only been targeted five times in three games, his size has made him a red-zone weapon. He is a touchdown-dependent sleeper at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) role in the offense is a major question mark right now. Dexter McCluster ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Antonio Andrews ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) are both taking away touches, and it is hard to recommend Sankey at FantasyScore given the current state of the Tennessee backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Andrews ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) saw his first action of the season and led the Titans in carries and yards. It remains to be seen if Andrews is going to lead the backfield going forward, and it may be best to avoid all Tennessee backs at FantasyScore until the situation becomes clearer.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota tied the NFL record for most touchdown passes through his first three games during Week 3's contest against the Indianapolis Colts. He has thrown eight touchdown passes, tying the mark previously set by Mark Rypien of the 1988 Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Tip: Mariota ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has been impressive but he also threw his first two career interceptions versus the Colts, the first of which was returned 69 yards for a touchdown in a game Tennessee ultimately lost by two points. Despite his high ceiling, FantasyScore owners should temper their expectations a bit and remember that he is still a rookie who can make an ill-advised play from time to time.
