Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 9/29/15 10:05am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham will continue to be eased into the offense, according to head coach Ken Wisenhunt. 'I think the one thing you have to be careful about is overloading him, because right now he is on a good track. He is making progress and we are excited about seeing him make these plays, Wisenhunt said. “But if you think you can just put him in for 82 snaps, it is going to be a problem, so you just don’t want to see him take a step back.”
Huddle Up: Right now DGB's role appears to be as the designated jump ball guy in the end zone, which has plenty of fantasy value in TD-heavy scoring systems. Eventually, the hope is that Green-Beckham takes over as Marcus Mariota's go-to guy in more places than just the end zone.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 9/29/15 11:20pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has thrown at least two touchdowns in each of his first three games in the NFL. He is only the third player in the Super Bowl era to accomplish such a feat.
Huddle Up: Mariota is fantasy's seventh-ranked QB, and it's not because of his running skills, either, as he rushed for only 25 on five carries so far. He's also been careful with the ball, throwing only two interceptions, and has the looks of a high-value keeper.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 9/25/15 12:03am ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Strong sign that the Titans' tight end is headed toward a green light Sunday after sitting out Week 2, and if so, he should be able to follow up with another full practice Friday.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 9/20/15 10:44pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright had just two receptions for 17 yards in the Week 2 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Wright had to deal with Joe Haden Sunday and Marcus Mariota was running for his life most of the game. The Browns' defense sacked Mariota seven times. Expect a bounce back performance next week from Wright when the Titans play the Colts.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 9/19/15 12:02am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright faces the Cleveland Browns on the road in Week 2, and the Browns allowed just 11 touchdown passes at home last season.
Huddle Up: The Browns are a step up from the Buccaneers' defense and Wright will have to deal with Joe Haden on Sunday. Still, Wright is a WR3 against Cleveland with the way Marcus Mariota played last week.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 9/18/15 9:25pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is listed as questionable for the Week 2 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Walker is reportedly "iffy" to play against the Browns. Walker owners should have other options ready to go for Sunday.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 9/17/15 10:26am ET
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (wrist) said Wednesday, Sept. 16, that he has a sprained ligament in his wrist.
Huddle Up: No word of if the injury will limit Walker this week or if it's just a "tape it up and tough it out" situation, but if you're banking on Walker as your fantasy TE you'll need to keep an eye on the injury report this week.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 9/17/15 7:29pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: That's two straight missed practices for Walker, who was injured in the team's Week 1 win in Tampa, and Friday now looms as a key practice for the TE1. Walker's fantasy owners need to start weighing their backup-plan options just in case.
Justin Hunter - WRPosted 9/15/15 6:53pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter was found not guilty Tuesday, Sept. 15, for an alleged assault and battery in a bar fight over the weekend of July 4.
Huddle Up: Good news for Hunter, but of course it still doesn't absolve him from any NFL punishment pending the league's review of the case. In terms of fantasy, Hunter caught one of his two Week 1 targets for 11 yards but is behind TE Delanie Walker and WRs Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas in the Titans' pass-catching hierarchy.
Terrance West - RBPosted 9/14/15 8:47am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Terrance West had 13 carries for 41 yards in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his regular season team debut.
Huddle Up: The Titans had the luxury of a 35-point lead at halftime, so they ran the ball more than they likely will in other games--and had an opportunity to test-drive their new back. Bishop Sankey was surprisingly effective, so it's not as if West is knocking on the door of a starting gig in Tennessee.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 9/14/15 5:24pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) has a chance to play in Week 2 despite his hand injury, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Walker's status will be updated later in the week. He would be a TE1 versus the Browns if he plays. If Walker can't go, Anthony Fasano would start in his place.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 9/7/15 4:38pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has not yet established himself as the Titans' lead running back, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky.
Huddle Up: This isn't surprising. Sankey struggled badly as a rookie and the Titans just traded for Terrance West. The team also brought in former Patriots' running back Jonas Gray for a tryout. Tennessee's backfield is headed for a committee to begin the year.
David Cobb - RBPosted 9/6/15 8:15pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb (calf) was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list Sunday, Sept. 6. He can return to practice after six weeks and play after eight weeks.
Huddle Up: Tough news for the fifth-round draft pick and his fantasy owners as half of his rookie season already has fallen by the wayside.
Terrance West - RBPosted 9/6/15 8:15pm ET
The Tennessee Titans have acquired RB Terrance West from the Cleveland Browns, in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Titans needed depth behind Bishop Sankey with backup David Cobb (calf) going on short-term IR, and they found it in West, a second-year back who led the Browns in rushing with 673 yards last season. Sankey, though, has a solid grip on the No. 1 role for now.
Hakeem Nicks - WRPosted 9/5/15 3:36pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Hakeem Nicks was released Saturday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Nicks simply isn't the same player after suffering all his lower leg injuries. Nicks' decline at receiver is almost as sudden as Trent Richardson's at running back. Once a Top 50 fantasy pick just a couple of years ago, Nicks may now be out of the NFL.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 9/4/15 10:01am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota finished 2-of-3 for 74 yards and a touchdown in his only series against the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason Thursday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Tennessee's top draft pick got in some work against Minnesota's backups and did what he was supposed to do. He also escaped without injury, so that makes the evening a success for the Titans.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 9/3/15 3:44pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is expected to start the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: The second-overall pick is 19-of-27 for 252 yards an interception this preseason but is still looking for his first TD. Not bad, but he can always use the extra work.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 9/3/15 3:44pm ET
The Tennessee Titans are hopeful to use WR Dorial Green-Beckham in the red zone catching frequent scoring passes from fellow rookie QB Marcus Mariota. Green has managed just five grabs for 72 yards in two preseason games with most of his targets on short routes.
Huddle Up: The second-round pick certainly has the size at 6-5 and 225 pounds, but the learning curve remains steep after he missed the 2014 college season.
Justin Hunter - WRPosted 9/1/15 10:04pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter's trial for misdemeanor charges in a July bar brawl has been set back to Sept. 15 in order for defense attorneys to come up with a key witness. Hunter is expected to play Thursday, Sept. 3, against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Only having just turned 24 this spring, Hunter still has some upside, but he should only be a deep bench consideration in the majority of leagues this season. And that's without factoring in the possibility of league discipline over the off-field incident.
David Cobb - RBPosted 8/29/15 10:47am ET
Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb (calf) is considered week-to-week because of a calf injury, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Cobb's injury means Bishop Sankey will open the season as the Titans starter with Antonio Andrews also in the mix for touches. Andrews vultured a goal line carry in Friday's preseason game.
David Cobb - RBPosted 8/28/15 3:46pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb didn't make the trip for the third preseason game due to a calf injury. The rookie also needs to improve his work ethic, according to running backs coach Sylvester Croom. 'I like his natural running ability, his natural running instincts,' Croom said. 'But he has a long way to go. He has to learn how to be a pro as far as work ethic, taking care of his body, getting in here early and doing the little things it takes to be a pro. He still hasn't quite learned what being professional means, so he has to learn that. There's no scholarships here, and his work ethic has to be better. He has to learn to practice like you play in a game. Once he does that, he has a chance to be a good football player.'
Huddle Up: Many had pegged the fifth-round pick as a fantasy sleeper and a threat to unseat Bishop Sankey as the Titans' lead back, but Sankey has displayed a much-improved game this summer and clearly should be the first Tennessee RB off the board.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 8/25/15 3:31pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had 45 yards on six carries in the team's second preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt saw improvement from Sankey from the first week of the preseason. Sankey had just 15 yards on eight carries in Week 1 of the preseason against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Rookie David Cobb has gotten more touches (21-14), including five more rushes (19-14) but they've had about the same level of efficiency with Sankey averaging 4.3 yards per carry and Cobb 4.2. Whoever winds up starting, though, likely won't be a bellcow back with the other still heavily involved and neither should be considered more than a flex option in the majority of weeks.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 8/25/15 3:34pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (thumb) will play in the preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Good to see 2014's ninth-ranked TE on the mend after he missed the team's first two exhibition contests with his stitched-up left hand. His on-field presence will only aid in the development of rookie QB Marcus Mariota.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 8/24/15 9:55am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham had four catches on four targets for 40 yards in a preseason game against the St. Louis Rams Sunday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: DGB continues to impress in Tennessee and may wind up being Marcus Mariota's favorite downfield target sooner rather than later. If the light switches on for Green-Beckham he has all the tools to give the Titans the big play receiver they've been looking for.
David Cobb - RBPosted 8/24/15 9:55am ET
Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb saw some work with the first-team offense in a preseason game against the St. Louis Rams Sunday, Aug. 23, finishing with 26 yards on eight carries.
Huddle Up: Not a particularly impressive YAC, but the fact that Cobb is seeing time with the starters suggests he'll have a role in Tennessee's backfield committee.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 8/24/15 9:55am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had six carries for 45 yards in a preseason game against the St. Louis Rams Sunday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: Perhaps Sankey is feeling the heat from rookie challenger David Cobb, because that was his most productive outing since September of last season.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 8/22/15 6:30pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb could end up with more carries than RB Bishop Sankey by the end of the season, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Sankey struggled as a rookie and Cobb looked much better in Tennessee's first preseason game. Regardless of who begins the year as the starter, it shouldn't be long before Cobb unseats Sankey as the Titans' No. 1 back.
Justin Hunter - WRPosted 8/18/15 9:33am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is 'trending up' in practice, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday, Aug. 17. The head coach wants Hunter to carry over the solid play into games.
Huddle Up: With what they believe is a franchise quarterback on board, the Titans are looking for some of their talented young receivers to step up as well. Hunter is running out of opportunities, especially if Dorial Green-Beckham lives up to the hype.
David Cobb - RBPosted 8/18/15 10:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans rookie RB David Cobb wants to prove to the Titans that he can be a three-down running back. Cobb wants to stay on the field and block during passing downs, not just run the ball.
Huddle Up: The fifth-round pick led the Titans in rushing (11-53) and caught his only target (1-1) in the preseason opener against the Falcons, and he'll no doubt receive more of an opportunity to show what he can do this Sunday night against the Rams.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 8/16/15 10:54pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey averaged just 1.9 yards per carry on eight rushing attempts in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 14, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said some of Sankey's issues could be blamed on the play of the offensive line.
Huddle Up: Sankey averaged 3.7 yards per carry last season -- slightly below the team's RB average of 3.81 -- and the second-year back is going to have to make better use of his opportunities -- ideal or not.
