Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/25/17 7:52am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) took part in the first 10 organized team activities Tuesday, May 23. He did everything in the walkthrough, individual drills and in 7-on-7 drills. ?It felt great,? Mariota said after practice. 'Four months ago I wasn't sure I was going to be able to participate in OTAs, and being able to do some of the drills,' Mariota said. 'I was very happy and very grateful. It was fun to be out there with the guys, and I enjoyed it.'
Huddle Up: Mariota took some strides in his second year with 3,426 passing yards, 26 touchdowns to nine interceptions, 349 rushing yards and two rushing scores. He also completed 61.2 percent of his passes. He's a midrange QB1 option in fantasy.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/13/17 3:27pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota's (leg) status for offseason work remains in the 'to be determined' department, according to TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt.
Huddle Up: Mariota's status for Week 1 is not in question, and it seems Wyatt and the team are doing their best to not put any undue pressure on the quarterback to come back before he is absolutely ready. Tennessee will want to see him establish some chemistry with rookies Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor, and Jonnu Smith before the summer is over, however, so he will probably be expected to be ready for the first day of training camp. Mariota should be considered a fantasy QB1 candidate.
Corey Davis - WRPosted 5/12/17 3:03pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (ankle) was a limited participant during practice Friday, May 12. Davis believes he can fully practice at this point, but head coach Mike Mularkey said the team will take things slow with Davis.
Huddle Up: Davis is coming off ankle surgery and probably will not do much during training camp. Davis will have a good chance to start as a rookie and could become the team's No. 1 receiver by the end of 2017. He should be considered a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver in most leagues.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/12/17 6:25pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is still not running at full speed, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
Huddle Up: The news is by no means a setback, and all signs point to Mariota being ready well before the start of the regular season. He has QB1 potential heading into 2017, especially after Tennessee went offense early and often in the draft.
Jonnu Smith - TEPosted 5/6/17 9:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker said he expects TE Jonnu Smith to be a sponge and believes Smith will have an opportunity to contribute and play.
Huddle Up: Smith's athleticism could allow him to become a productive weapon in the passing game one day, so he is a stash candidate in dynasty formats. For now, Walker is the tight end to own in most leagues, and he is a top-10 fantasy option at his position.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/4/17 5:12pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) said that he feels great and is 'probably another week or two from really full-head running.' In the meantime, he's begun to do some jogging and is continuing to take things one day at a time in doing his best to be prepared for the season.
Huddle Up: Mariota has seemingly been breezing through his rehab, as reports continue to indicate that the franchise quarterback is ahead of schedule. That's good news for those who have interest in drafting him for their fantasy team, as Mariota looks like he'll be ready in plenty of time before the season opener. After his breakout campaign a year ago, Mariota will enter the new season with legitimate QB1 potential.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 5/3/17 9:12am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry was back at Saint Thomas Sports Park on Monday, May 2, after missing the first two weeks of the team?s voluntary offseason program due to taking classes at the University of Alabama. 'He looks great, is moving well and seems to be in very good shape for this time of the year. It?s obvious he?s been doing a whole lot of work in the time he?s been away,' running backs coach Sylvester Croom said.
Huddle Up: There had been some speculation when Henry didn't show up for the start of voluntary workouts he either was unhappy about DeMarco Murray being handed the job in 2017 or that he wasn't being given the chance to compete for it. This report should quell those concerns. With Murray possibly nearing the end of his prime at age 29, it wouldn't be a surprise if Henry is able to forge a split backfield at some point in 2017.
Taywan Taylor - WRPosted 4/28/17 7:15pm ET
The Tennessee Titans selected WR Taywan Taylor with the 72nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.
Huddle Up: The Titans keep adding weapons for Marcus Mariota, and Taylor has the ability to play in the slot or outside. Don't count on Taylor helping your fantasy teams in 2017, but he should be stashed in all keeper formats. He has WR2 potential.
Jonnu Smith - TEPosted 4/28/17 9:58pm ET
The Tennessee Titans selected TE Jonnu Smith with the 100th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Smith has good athleticism for a tight end, but the Titans added multiple receivers early in the draft and Delanie Walker is ahead of him at the tight end spot. He is a speculative add in keeper leagues.
Corey Davis - WRPosted 4/27/17 5:47pm ET
The Tennessee Titans selected Western Michigan WR Corey Davis with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.
Huddle Up: Davis will have a solid chance to start for the Titans as a rookie and could become the team's No. 1 receiver. He should see a good amount of targets in 2017 and can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 4/27/17 6:52pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis said QB Marcus Mariota is his 'favorite' quarterback. 'He is smart, he is very accurate and I told you before I like the swagger he has going on,' Davis said. 'He is very poised, and he is a great leader. Catching passes from him, it is going to be right.'
Huddle Up: Davis will be given every opportunity to start this year, and he could be Mariota's top target sooner rather than later. He is worth a look as a WR4 in redraft leagues, and he is worthy of a top-five pick in rookie drafts.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 4/26/17 1:53pm ET
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said he has not talked with RB Derrick Henry since Henry decided not to report for offseason workouts. Henry is currently taking classes at the University of Alabama.
Huddle Up: Henry's role probably will not change much in 2017 but he should continue to see a solid amount of carries during the season. He can be considered a No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues as well as a handcuff for DeMarco Murray owners.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 4/17/17 12:17pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) hopes to begin running again in two to three weeks. Mariota underwent surgery on his right leg earlier this offseason.
Huddle Up: Keep an eye on Mariota's status as the offseason progresses. The Titans will indubitably be cautious with their franchise quarterback. He has QB1 potential when he's fully healthy, especially with his running ability. If he makes it through the offseason without any restraints, he'll be a QB1 consideration in fantasy drafts.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 4/13/17 5:32pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) will report for the first day of the team's voluntary offseason program Monday, April 17, according to a team spokesperson. Head coach Mike Mularkey said the team will be overly cautious with Mariota, who is expected to return to the field in time for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: This would appear to be another step in Mariota being ready for the season opener. As long as he's healthy going into Week 1, he has the chance to be an extremely valuable fantasy quarterback given what he did last season, throwing for 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns compared to only nine interceptions. Mariota can present excellent value towards the end of drafts.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 3/27/17 10:42pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) has shed the walking boot on his surgically repaired right leg and is back home in Hawaii, where he is running on the beach as part of his rehab from a broken fibula that he suffered Dec. 24. He expects to be ready by training camp.
Huddle Up: Mariota continues to be on track in his recovery, as the goal has always been for him to be ready by training camp. At this rate, it looks like he'll be back at 100 percent going into next season, meaning owners can draft him with high expectations after his breakout campaign in 2016. Mariota could easily wind up being one of the best value picks at quarterback, having legitimate QB1 potential.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 3/11/17 4:18pm ET
Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Titans) agreed to terms on a one-year, $4 million contract with the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, March 11.
Huddle Up: Considering how injury-prone Kevin White has been over his first two seasons and relatively unproven Cameron Meredith still is, Wright has a chance to lead the Bears in receiving this season if he can stay healthy. At worst, the ex-Titan should be a dependable slot option for Mike Glennon. Wright should be worthy of WR5 consideration in redraft leagues this summer.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 2/28/17 11:05pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) has ditched the scooter that helped him keep weight off his repaired right leg and switched to a walking boot Tuesday, Feb. 28. It's the next step in his recovery from surgery to fix a broken fibula.
Huddle Up: This is right on schedule for Mariota, as he continues to be on track to return in time for training camp. As long as he returns at 100 percent, he could offer fantasy owners sneaky good value, after exhibiting shades of being a legitimate QB1 in his sophomore campaign this past season. Before going down in Week 16, Mariota registered 3,426 passing yards and 26 touchdowns compared to just nine interceptions. He also ran for 349 yards and recorded two rushing TDs.
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.
