Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota and the rest of the offense want to improve on third-down conversions and finishing drives Friday, Aug. 28, against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mariota said the Titans could have done a lot better on third downs in their last game against the St. Louis Rams. Mariota added that he wants the team to build on not turning the ball over, getting first downs, playing with rhythm and building chemistry.
Fantasy Tip: It's not that Mariota played poorly last week; he just could have led some more fruitful drives. There will obviously be some growing pains for Mariota. He can't be expected to play flawlessly in just his second preseason game. Be patient with Mariota, and don't draft him as your starting fantasy quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Walker will probably go undrafted in standard fantasy leagues, but he's a backup sleeper tight end selection worth monitoring in deeper leagues. Marcus Mariota could rely on the tight end often as a safety valve in his rookie season.

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had 45 yards on six carries in the team's second preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt saw improvement from Sankey from the first week of the preseason. Sankey had just 15 yards on eight carries in Week 1 of the preseason against the Atlanta Falcons.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Sankey's improvement will be enough to hold off impressive rookie David Cobb, who appears to be in line for the majority of work in the backfield. Even if Cobb wins the starting job, Sankey could see meaningful repetitions and be valuable for running back depth in deeper fantasy leagues as a handcuff to Cobb.

Tennessee Titans backup QB Zach Mettenberger has performed at a high level in training camp and the preseason, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt laughed off a suggestion that the Titans should trade Mettenberger before the season starts. Mettenberger has gone 15-for-20 for 220 yards and two touchdowns with one interception so far in preseason for a passer rating of 122.9.
Fantasy Tip: The Titans are sticking with Marcus Mariota as their starting QB to begin the season, but Mettenberger is proving his worth as Tennessee's backup with a solid preseason. It seems unlikely they'll deal him in the event Mariota is injured or struggles. Mettenberger isn't worth owning in any fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Green-Beckham is blessed with excellent size and athleticism, and while he is an unfinished product, he is worth a flier late in drafts because of his upside.

Fantasy Tip: After struggling in the first preseason game, Sankey found some running against the Rams. He should open the year as the starter, but David Cobb figures to cut into his carries. Consider Sankey a low-end RB3.

Fantasy Tip: After an eventful debut that featured a couple of turnovers, Mariota avoided mistakes in his second start. The rookie should improve as the year goes on, but donít expect him to be more than a low-end QB2.

Fantasy Tip: This, of course, remains to be seen, but Sankey is expected to start at the beginning of the season. Sankey doesn't seem like the type of running back that will run away with a starting gig. Cobb should see a fair amount of opportunities. He's a prospective low-end RB3 or high-end RB4 if he can get enough touches.
