Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 2/22/17 7:09pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) is 'doing very well' in his rehab from a broken fibula, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
Huddle Up: The Titans plan on holding Mariota out of OTAs in an effort to make sure he doesn't suffer any kind of needless setback, so he is a very good bet to be fully healthy by the time training camp rolls around. Assuming Tennessee lands a top-notch receiver in the draft as expected, Mariota stands a very good chance of settling in as a midrange QB1 in 2017.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 2/22/17 7:18pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is an 'important part of the offense', but DeMarco Murray will remain the starter and lead runner in 2017, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
Huddle Up: Depth-chart proclamations in February mean very little since they usually only serve as a reminder of how things were when the season ended; Henry and Murray obviously haven't set foot on a field in over a month. Murray logged 346 touches in 2016 and is one of the league's more complete running backs, but he is entering his age-29 season and a prime regression candidate. Henry still may not earn enough of a role to be a regular fantasy starter as a sophomore, but he remains a strong buy in dynasty leagues.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 2/20/17 1:23pm ET
In 2016, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota became the seventh player in NFL history to throw for at least 6,000 yards and rush for at least 600 yards in his first two seasons combined.
Huddle Up: Mariota appears to be the real deal, although his running ability may get him into trouble. He's already missed five games in his first two years. Even so, he's a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 consideration for next season's fantasy drafts.
Rishard Matthews - WRPosted 2/20/17 1:15pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted career highs in catches (65), receiving yards (945) and touchdowns (9) last season. The 65 catches were tied for the team lead, while his nine touchdowns were the most on the Titans.
Huddle Up: Matthews eventually cemented himself as the No. 1 receiver in Tennessee. He should maintain that status in 2017, especially with Kendall Wright heading for free agency. Don't expect as good of a season from Matthews, but he should still be drafted in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 territory.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 2/15/17 11:12am ET
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said the team will be very cautious with QB Marcus Mariota (leg) and probably will keep him out until the start of training camp. Mularkey said Mariota's recovery is on schedule.
Huddle Up: Mariota will have the entire offseason to recover from his fractured fibula and should be ready for training camp. He improved in his second year in the NFL and finished with 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns. He also added 349 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Mariota should continue to improve and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some fantasy leagues.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 2/10/17 8:27pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker said the offense needs a speedy receiver who can take the top off the defense and open up things in the middle of the field.
Huddle Up: If the Titans do spend one of their two first-round picks on a receiver, that player would be worth an immediate look in fantasy circles. Even if a receiver isn't added, Walker will remain one of the safest TE1 options in 2017.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 2/7/17 8:36pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota became the first player in franchise history to post back-to-back seasons with a passer rating of 90 or better. In his rookie season in 2015, Mariotta finished with a 91.5 QB rating, before wrapping up his sophomore campaign this past year with a 95.6 QB rating.
Huddle Up: There's no doubt Mariota is one of the league's brightest young quarterbacks, and his fantasy outlook in the years ahead looks very promising due to his dual-threat ability. While his status going into training camp is still a bit up in the air after he fractured his fibula late in the year, Mariota could potentially return terrific value in '17 as long as he's healthy.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 1/26/17 7:38pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will break the franchise single-season rushing record of 1,845 yards in the next year or two, according to the current record holder, Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray.
Huddle Up: Elliott lived up to the hype in his rookie year, and he enters 2017 as a top-five pick in all formats.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 1/25/17 3:52pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw for 1,654 yards, 13 touchdowns and four interceptions at home this season while throwing for 1,772 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions on the road.
Huddle Up: Mariota had a terrific second season in the NFL but probably will miss some of the offseason workouts because of his fractured fibula. He should be an attractive option for fantasy owners next season as long as he is healthy and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 1/25/17 8:02pm ET
Impending free-agent Kendall Wright 'could be a good pick-up at a cheap price,' according to the Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe.
Huddle Up: While Wolfe is merely speculating, the fit makes sense for both sides. Denver really hasn't had a serviceable slot receiver since Wes Welker, while Wright has shown he is capable of working in between the numbers and would give the Broncos another threat besides Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Wright is almost certain to leave the Tennessee Titans in the offseason. Wright is coming off his third straight disappointing season following his 94-catch campaign in 2013 and should be affordable.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 1/19/17 9:11am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) recently met with a doctor and is on track in his recovery from a broken fibula. Head coach Mike Mularkey said he is not sure when Mariota will be able to practice but expects him to be ready for the start of the season.
Huddle Up: Mariota probably will miss some of the offseason workouts but likely will be ready for training camp. He posted solid numbers this season and could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback next season.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 1/4/17 9:28pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright has an expiring contract, and he said he doesn't believe he is in the team's plans for 2017. 'I'll be glad to see what I can do and make a team fall in love with me and go and do what I know I can do,' Wright said.
Huddle Up: Wright became an afterthought in Tennessee's offense, but he produced early in his career when given a featured role. If he lands in the right situation, he could make a fantasy impact in 2017.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 1/2/17 10:24am ET
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (foot) is hopeful rest will be enough for him to recover from his torn plantar plate, although he has yet to rule out surgery.
Huddle Up: Murray showed he still had plenty left in the tank in 2016 after he was miscast in Philadelphia in Chip Kelly's offense, but he does have a history of foot injuries and will turn 29 in February. Derrick Henry isn't going away either, all of which makes Murray a strong bust candidate in 2017, especially if it is determined he needs surgery down the road.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 1/2/17 11:53am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) will have the aid of a knee walker/scooter for eight weeks, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
Huddle Up: Mariota has plenty of time to make a full recovery from a broken fibula and subsequent surgery. He should be good to go when offseason activities commence and has QB1 potential heading into the 2017 season.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 1/1/17 4:06pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker posted five receptions for 35 yards on eight targets in the Week 17 game against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Walker had his lowest yardage total since 2013, finishing 65 catches for 800 yards. However, his seven touchdowns were a career best and he will still be a low-end TE1 heading into 2017.
Rishard Matthews - WRPosted 1/1/17 4:06pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted nine receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Houston Texans. He was targeted 13 times.
Huddle Up: Matthews started out rather slow, but he managed career highs with 65 catches, 945 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in his first campaign in Nashville. He proved he can be a capable No. 1 receiver and will be a solid WR3 in 2017 unless the team dramatically improves its receiving corps in the offseason.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 1/1/17 4:05pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray entered Week 17 against the Houston Texans needing just two yards for the most rushing yards in the AFC. He posted 11 runs for just 21 yards, his worst performance of the season, but it was good enough.
Huddle Up: Murray lucked out by the fact the Pittsburgh Steelers rested Le'Veon Bell. Murray didn't finish on a high note, but he still wrapped up the rushing title. His role could continue to decrease into 2017 with the presence of Derrick Henry, who came on strong down the stretch.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 1/1/17 4:05pm ET
Tennessee Titans rookie RB Derrick Henry rushed 15 times for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Houston Texans. He also had a catch for three yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Henry saw a bigger role down the stretch for the Titans, finding the end zone four times in his final five outings. As long as DeMarco Murray is in Nashville, Henry is more of a flex fantasy play into 2017, but his role figures to continue to expand.
Alex Tanney - QBPosted 12/27/16 2:24pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 27. QB Alex Tanney was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad in a subsequent move.
Huddle Up: It's a tough way for Mariota's season to end, but he did have a good season. If he makes a full recovery by the time training camp begins then he'll be a fringe QB1 draft consideration.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/26/16 1:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) will undergo surgery on his broken fibula Wednesday, Dec. 26. A plate will be inserted and a four-to-five month recovery period is expected.
Huddle Up: Mariota will have all of the offseason to heal from his serious injury. Matt Cassell is not a recommended starter for seasonal leagues or daily contests. If Mariota can make a full recovery, he'll be a borderline QB1 draft consideration next year.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/26/16 4:50pm ET
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said the team believes QB Marcus Mariota (leg) has a chance to be ready for offseason workouts. Mariota is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: The Titans probably will take things slow with Mariota this offseason but he could see some work during the workouts if he is cleared. He finishes the 2016 season with 3,426 passing yards, 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions and also added 349 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 quarterback in leagues next season.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/24/16 12:20pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (ankle) was carted off the field after suffering an apparent ankle injury in Week 16. Mariota's right ankle was placed in an air cast.
Huddle Up: It appears like Mariota suffered a serious injury and probably will not be able to play in Week 17. Matt Cassel will start as long as Mariota is sidelined but should be avoided by owners.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/24/16 1:38pm ET
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) suffered a fractured fibula in the Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Sunday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: With Mariota down and out for the season, Matt Cassel will steer the Titans ship home. Even if you are looking for a DFS value in Week 17, Cassel has very little in the way for fantasy appeal against a Top 5 Houston Texans pass defense in the final week.
Rishard Matthews - WRPosted 12/24/16 2:41pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted three receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown on a team-high nine targets in Week 16 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Matthews took a step back after hitting the century mark in yardage last week, but he made up for the lack of yards with the score. He has found the end zone eight times in the past 11 games to emerge as a useful WR3 in most fantasy formats down the stretch.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 12/24/16 2:40pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray rushed 14 times for just 42 yards in the Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added two receptions for 18 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: It was a disappointing performance for Murray, especially for fantasy owners in championship games with what appeared to be a favorable matchup.
Matt Cassel - QBPosted 12/24/16 2:39pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Matt Cassel completed 13 of his 24 pass attempts for 124 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, taking over for the injured QB Marcus Mariota (fibula).
Huddle Up: Cassel is likely to start the regular season finale against the Houston Texans, but he isn't even a good low-priced DFS option as he will be facing a Top 5 pass defense with a division title potentially on the line.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 12/24/16 2:42pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker managed just three receptions for 23 yards in the Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he was able to find the end zone. He was targeted eight times.
Huddle Up: Walker has tailed off down the stretch for fantasy owners, and he is likely to struggle into Week 17 working with Matt Cassel in the regular season finale against the Houston Texans.
Tajae Sharpe - WRPosted 12/24/16 2:41pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe posted three receptions for a team-high 48 yards on eight targets in the Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Sharpe still has just seven receptions for 69 yards on 16 targets over the past four games, so he isn't much of a fantasy option heading into the regular season finale. He does have some upside heading into 2017, however.
Tajae Sharpe - WRPosted 12/18/16 8:08pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe managed two catches for 10 yards in the Week 15 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: Sharpe had 68 yards in each of his two games in Week 10 and 11 while finding the end zone in each outing. However, he has disappeared from the offense in the past three games since then, going for just four grabs and 21 yards on eight targets. He can no longer be trusted in any fantasy format at this critical juncture of the season.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 12/18/16 8:03pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker posted six receptions for 55 yards on seven targets in the Week 15 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Walker hasn't had a big-time outing since his 124-yard performance with a touchdown against the Packers Nov. 13. Over the past four games he has 55 or fewer yards, but he remains a TE1 in all fantasy leagues for his potential. He has been targeted six or more times in five of the past six outings.
