Tennessee Titans news, rumors and injuries
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.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is still battling a nagging hamstring injury. He may not see any action until the regular season at this point, but he shouldn't be completely overlooked in fantasy drafts, particularly in PPR leagues. You can do worse than taking him as a late-round flier for depth.

Fantasy Tip: Right now Wright figures to be the No. 3 wide receiver behind Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe. He still has more value in PPR formats as a possession receiver, but he shouldn't be viewed as more than WR5.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie undrafted free agent has run with the first team in both of the Titans' exhibition games, so his eight catches and 103 receiving yards thus far isn't coming against fringe or soon-to-be-released defenders. At this point, he needs to be taken seriously as a potential WR5 in fantasy. Delanie Walker and Rishard Matthews figure to be higher on the passing-game totem pole in what should be a smashmouth attack, so he is unlikely to emerge as a regular fantasy starter at any point in 2016.

Tennessee Titans CB Jason McCourty (hip) may not play in the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Saturday, Aug. 20, because of a hip flexor. Head coach Mike Mularkey said the injury is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter has a ton of size, and he seems a natural for effectiveness in the red zone, but the light just hasn't gone on for him. Perhaps a change of scenery might do him some good. Avoid for fantasy purposes for now.

Fantasy Tip: Douglas has more experience from his time in Atlanta, and he has made some noise in the past. With this mish-mash receiver corps in Nashville he could very well serve as the No. 3 guy, or be inactive most Sundays. Neither of these players warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration at this juncture.

Tennessee Titans WR Andre Johnson was no guarantee for a roster spot earlier this week, but the trade of WR Dorial Green-Beckham to the Philadelphia Eagles increases his chances of making this team. Johnson might be battling with WRs Harry Douglas and Tre McBride for one or two receiver spots.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson's best days are well behind him and he is no longer a fantasy asset at this point of his career. Last season in Indianapolis was a disaster and he is best left to the waiver wire until he shows he has a little juice left.

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) is expected to serve as the team's third wide receiver working out of the slot. He has been dealing with a hamstring injury since early in camp, but in the first few days he appeared energized, according to beat writer Paul Kuharsky.
Fantasy Tip: Wright is also in a contract year, and that usually provides plenty of motivation. With Dorial Green-Beckham out of the picture, look for Wright to be a vital part of the passing offense. He is a decent WR5 with some upside worth picking in the final rounds on draft day.

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker is expected to remain the primary pass target, according to beat writer Paul Kuharsky, although the team will try to spread the ball around to a lot of different people.
Fantasy Tip: Walker is a low-end TE1 who will see plenty of targets in Tennessee. The wide receiver corps is a big mess and Walker could easily lead this team in receiving yards and scores through the air.
