Titans | Marcus Mariota's accuracy helping WRs

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:01:30 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will help make the receivers more dynamic because of his "unbelievable accuracy," according to WR Harry Douglas. "If you have an accurate quarterback, it allows us to get more yards after that catch," Douglas said.

Fantasy Tip: A successful year from Mariota will undoubtedly lead to a boost in the production for Tennessee's receivers. However, it remains to be seen what the pecking order will be and which receiver will become Mariota's go-to option. Kendall Wright and tight end Delanie Walker are the safest bets and should be drafted in all formats, but Justin Hunter and Dorial Green-Beckham also have some late-round upside.

Titans | Dorial Green-Beckham a tough matchup?

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 19:38:26 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham was called a "nightmare matchup for any cornerback at any level" by one of his former college coaches, Jay Norvell. "He's not a finished product, but most players aren't," Norvell said. "So he's going to have to learn the pro game and that's a completely different game from college. But he's got some natural gifts that will help him in that game, and in some ways, the NFL is probably a better game for him than college football, just because of the bump rules and (less) contact and all of that. So there are some advantages he has. ... That's why they picked him."

Fantasy Tip: Green-Beckham compares favorably to some of the best receivers in the NFL in terms of his combination of size and athleticism, but he is raw and has had issues off the field. Still, he has enough upside on a rebuilding Tennessee team to warrant a late-round flier, and he is worth stashing in dynasty leagues.

Titans | Marcus Mariota contract update

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:50:54 -0700

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota's rookie deal is not being held up because of a supposed clause that would forbid him from surfing, according to a source. Mariota has not signed his contract yet due to differences in contract language, according Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota will get a deal done eventually. He's expected to start immediately for the Titans and should be drafted as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Titans | GM not worried about Marcus Mariota

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:55:27 -0700

Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster told media he would not mind if QB Marcus Mariota missed a few days of training camp and that it would not be a big deal if he held out. There is a piece of language in the contract holding up what should be a four-year deal worth $21 million.

Fantasy Tip: There are five weeks until training camp starts, so do not expect this to be a big issue. Mariota should be ready as a QB2 at the start of the season.

Titans | Marcus Mariota may not run as often

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 12:00:52 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will be allowed to run at times this season in order to keep opponents on their heels, but head coach Ken Whisenhunt may want to limit Mariota's runs so he can avoid injury. "The league does a good job trying to protect quarterbacks, but any time a quarterback takes off with the ball there's a risk," Whisenhunt said. "Then again, anytime anyone has the ball there's a risk, so I don't think you can get too caught up in it. You just have to be smart. Obviously you don't want him having 30 carries a game because then you really increase that risk."

Fantasy Tip: Mariota likely will enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job. Mariota has some added fantasy value because of his ability to run but still should not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback this season.

Titans | Marcus Mariota deal being held up

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 18:01:10 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is projected to receive a $21 million deal over four years which will be guaranteed by the team. However, he remains the only unsigned first-round draft pick due to a delay finalizing the deal due to a disagreement over offset language.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to start, and the two sides have five weeks to hammer out a deal. Once he is in the mix he will be a decent QB2 for fantasy owners, and he could emerge as a low-end QB1 by season's end if he makes a smooth transition from college to the pros.

Titans | Marcus Mariota ready for camp

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:29:28 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said he has been working on learning the playbook and is ready for whatever head coach Ken Whisenhunt asks him to do during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota should enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job and should win the competition as long as he does not struggle during the preseason. Mariota likely will not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper fantasy leagues this season.

Titans | Marcus Mariota not worried about deal

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:12:46 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said he is not worried about his contract situation even though he is only first-round draft pick unsigned at the moment. The two sides do not appear to be close to a deal at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota still has around five weeks to agree to a deal, so he should report for the start of training camp in July. Mariota likely will be the starting quarterback for the Titans this season but should only be seen as a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues this season.

Titans | Confidence high for Antonio Andrews

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 20:32:18 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews feels confident he can crack the roster, and is shooting for a starting tailback job in training camp and the preseason. "I am just going for a starting spot, whether it is Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster, David Cobb, Jalston Fowler or Connor Neighbors, I am just trying to be the No. 1 guy," Andrews said.

Fantasy Tip: Andrews was a stud in college fantasy football during his days at Western Kentucky, but the NFL is a whole new ball game and he is competing for touches in a crowded backfield. Perhaps he gets a chance to show what he can do, but for now Fantasy players should only monitor his progress. It is premature to add him to cheat sheets at this juncture, as everyone is confident heading into a new year.

Titans | Marcus Mariota last 1st-rounder unsigned

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 15:20:28 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is the only unsigned first-round draft pick as of Friday, June 19. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean said a deal will get done and that there's plenty of time to do so before training camp commences.

Fantasy Tip: There hasn't really been any indication as to why it's taking so long to get a deal done. He's expected to start right away in his rookie year and has impressed this offseason, but he should still be regarded as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 10:21:57 -0700
