Tennessee Titans news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 12 Oct 2015 14:32:00 -0700
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans OT Taylor Lewan (shoulder) doesn't think he'll need surgery to fix the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 5. He believes rest and rehabilitation will be enough to heal the injury.

Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb (calf) said the plan is for him to return to practice next week. He is eligible to play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 9 as he is currently on the short-term Reserve/Injured list.
Fantasy Tip: The Tennessee backfield is somewhat crowded right now with Antonio Andrews, Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster all involved. Andrews and Sankey still seem to be at the top of the pecking order, but Cobb could make his way upwards if he stays healthy and produces consistently.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had six targets and caught four of them for 38 yards. Douglas ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had just three targets, hauling in two grabs for 17 yards. While the two are splitting looks, Hunter has the clear upside and attention advantage. Hunter could be a basement flyer against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6 on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: The injury to Wright doesn't sound terribly serious, but it adds to the frustration for Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) who is unhappy with his role in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had a decent amount of catches, but he still has minimal appeal in Fantasyscore.

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster rushed eight times for 20 yards in the Week 5 loss against the Buffalo Bills. RB Antonio Andrews rushed seven times for just nine yards, but he had a touchdown while added three catches for a team-high 45 yards. RB Bishop Sankey also ran seven times for 20 yards with three grabs for 23 yards.
Fantasy Tip: A three-headed running back monster is frustrating for FantasyScore players, especially since the trio had generally the same amount of touches. Andrews ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), McCluster ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Sankey ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) should be avoided until one is given more of a primary role.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 21 of his 32 pass attempts for 187 yards, no interceptions and an interception in the Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills. He did run five times for a team-high 47 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Mariota ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) started off like a ball of fire in Week 1 in Tampa Bay, but as warned there will be growing pains and ugly games like this one. Rookies are tough plays in FantasyScore, especially at the quarterback position.

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright was angry with his role following the Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills. He finished with three receptions for 29 yards and was targeted six times. QB Marcus Mariota said after the game that the team will "find ways to get (Wright) the ball."
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) might be a squeaky wheel who gets the grease in Week 6. FantasyScore players might want to remember Wright as a lower-tier option with some upside if the Titans do indeed try to get him more involved next week.

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright faces the Buffalo Bills in Week 5, and the Bills have struggled against slot receivers, allowing a combined 24 catches for 205 yards and three touchdowns to New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman, Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry and New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris the last three games.
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been solid in two of Tennessee's three games this year, and for the price, he is worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore in Week 5 against a beatable Buffalo secondary.

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.
