Justin Hunter - WRPosted 5/27/16 2:34pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is up to 209 pounds from the 203 pounds he played at least year thanks to aggressive workouts and a diet change.
Huddle Up: This is a big year for the 2013 second-round pick who has disappointed in back-to-back seasons, catching a combined 50 passes for 762 yards and four TDs.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 5/26/16 11:12am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham impressed QB Marcus Mariota at organized team activities Tuesday, May 25. Mariota called Green-Beckham a stud and said he's gifted physically. 'Hopefully we can find ways to get him the football and let him do this thing,' Mariota said. Head coach Mike Mularkey said a bigger role for Green-Beckham hinges on his grasp of the playbook after the second-year receiver struggled with route-running last year. 'I think he knows that's a point of emphasis for him,' Mularkey said. 'He'll have a lot to say on whether he's that guy or not.'
Huddle Up: The quarterback loves him. The team needs him. And if DGB can figure out this whole route-running thing there's some serious fantasy upside to be had here.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 5/26/16 3:01pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray has received praise from both head coach Mike Mularkey and QB Marcus Mariota during organized team activities this week. 'I certainly liked some of the cuts I saw,' Mularkey said. 'Even without pads on, those were cuts he wasn't going to get touched on. It was going to be an explosive run. You can tell when a play is going to work and not work.'
Huddle Up: Perhaps the Titans' run offense suits Murray better than the square-peg-in-the-round-hole fit he had in Chip Kelly's Philly offense a year ago. Look for Murray to wind up being the lead horse in the Titans' RBBC, which also will feature second-round pick Derrick Henry.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/25/16 10:14am ET
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is up to 225 pounds this year compared to the 220 pounds he played at last season, not 210 pounds as previously reported.
Huddle Up: A few extra pounds should help Mariota absorb the hits he's bound to take. So long as it doesn't slow down his elusiveness, his bulking up is a positive development for the Titans.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 5/25/16 10:14am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright said he feels more explosive at his current 195 pounds, 12 pounds heavier than he was last season.
Huddle Up: Bigger, with more explosiveness? That's an ideal combination for Wright, who will lead a revamped Titans receiver rotation that includes a second-year Dorial Green-Beckham and free agent signee Rishard Matthews.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/22/16 2:02pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been more vocal this offseason, according to TE Delanie Walker, and he looks more comfortable with the offensive system and is making quicker decisions.
Huddle Up: Mariota should improve and should up his fantasy-point total after missing four starts as a rookie, but he will be counting on basically the same pass-catching cast and will do good just to move up into QB2 territory.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 5/18/16 9:19am ET
Free-agent QB Zach Mettenberger (Titans) was claimed by the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, May 17.
Huddle Up: It's not as if the Bolts are loaded behind Philip Rivers, and Mettenberger showed at least some competence in Tennessee before Marcus Mariota arrived. So he's at least worth a waiver claim.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 5/16/16 11:08am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was waived Monday, May 16.
Huddle Up: Mettenberger wasn't seeing the field in front of Marcus Mariota, and his value as a backup wasn't enough to keep him on the roster. Given the state of quarterbacking in the NFL, however, don't be surprised if he finds a training camp to participate in this fall.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 5/15/16 2:06pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham has been limited by a hamstring injury this offseason, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
Huddle Up: DGB has the time to take things slowly as he looks to build on his 32-549-4 rookie season.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 5/15/16 2:15pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is going to be a 'monster' for the offense, TE Delanie Walker said, and C Ben Jones said he 'can't wait' to see what Henry does behind Tennessee's improved offensive line.
Huddle Up: If the Titans hadn't signed free-agent DeMarco Murray, the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner would be markedly higher on fantasy wish lists. Now, a true time-share looms.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 5/12/16 12:56pm ET
Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker's new deal includes a $1 million roster bonus due Monday, May 16, and a $2.7 million guaranteed base this season, with up to $250,000 total in per-game roster bonuses. He has a $4.2 million base salary in 2017, fully guaranteed fifth day of league year, and up to $250,000 total in per-game roster bonuses. In 2018, he has a $500,000 roster bonus on fifth day of league year, a $5.4 million base and up to $250,000 total in per-game roster bonuses.
Huddle Up: Walker is coming off a career year (94-1,088-6) and still figures to remain the Titans' top passing-game target given the uneven play of their WR corps.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 5/10/16 4:13pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry's four-year rookie deal is worth $5.407 million and includes $3.278 million guaranteed and a $2.133 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Fantasy expectations for the second-round Heisman winner are strong, but they certainly would be a lot higher if the Titans hadn't gone out and signed free-agent DeMarco Murray earlier this offseason.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 5/8/16 1:32pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker has signed a two-year contract extension worth $14.7 million. The deal includes $8.2 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Walker finished fifth among fantasy tight ends with a career-best 94-1,088-6 season a year ago and is poised for another TE1 season again this fall.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 5/6/16 12:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey will share No. 20 with SS Kevin Byard during training camp, but the team isnít running a number-share program for its top players.
Huddle Up: With all of 762 yards and three TDs on 199 rushes during his first two seasons, the 2014 second-round pick's roster spot was in danger -- and that was before the Titans added free-agent DeMarco Murray and drafted Heisman-winner Derrick Henry in the second round.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 4/29/16 8:42pm ET
The Tennessee Titans selected Alabama RB Derrick Henry with the No. 45 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft on Friday, April 29.
Huddle Up: Well, if the Titans were going to have a RBBC, they might as well have the league's best with the Heisman-winner Henry joining offseason addition Murray in the backfield. That dilutes the fantasy value of both, though, and if you were somehow holding on to Antonio Andrews, Bishop Sankey or Patrick Cobb, it's time to move on.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 3/27/16 8:24pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham said he views himself as a No. 1 receiver. He also said he has been talking to QB Marcus Mariota and plans to do some informal work with Mariota before the official offseason programs begin April 18.
Huddle Up: At 6-5 and 225 pounds, Green-Beckham is an impressive target and caught 32 passes for 549 yards and a quartet of TDs asa rookie last season. However, he and Mariota will need to improve on his catch percentage, which was 47.8 percent -- which ranked 151st out of the 154 players who had 30 or more catches.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 3/13/16 2:59pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey will have to prove himself this offseason if he wants to remain with the team, according to beat writer Jim Wyatt.
Huddle Up: Remember two offseasons ago when Sankey was a hot fantasy commodity? It seems even longer ago than that as the 2014 second-round draft pick was moved aside for Antonio Andrews last season and is now even a rung further down on the depth chart with the Titans swinging the blockbuster deal for DeMarco Murray. His NFL future appears to lie elsewhere.
Antonio Andrews - RBPosted 3/3/16 5:13pm ET
Tennessee Titans exclusive-rights free-agent RB Antonio Andrews signed a one-year deal Thursday, March 3. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Andrews, a second-year undrafted free agent from Western Kentucky, led the Titans with 520 rushing yards last season, and he'll be part of the team's backfield committee for another season.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 2/16/16 5:05pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will be encouraged to run more in his sophomore season by head coach Mike Mularkey. 'Designed runs for the quarterback, and my feelings are he can protect himself much better running the football than he can standing in the pocket, and you've seen it over time. We're not going to run him like they run Cam Newton with some of these designed counter plays and things up the middle that are gonna expose him by any means, but I think he's such a threat in the run game for defenses,' Mularkey said.
Huddle Up: Mariota finished with 252 rushing yards -- ninth among quarterbacks-- and two TDs on 34 rushes, which was tied for the 15th most among QBs. Considering that Tom Brady finished with as many rushing attempts as the 22-year-old Mariota, certainly expect to see more running out of the second-year QB in 2016.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 2/5/16 11:10pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota was praised by retired QB Kurt Warner. 'I thought he exceeded a lot of expectations,' Warner said. 'There were things he did really well and made some great decisions. There's a lot of things he can build off of, a lot to like.'
Huddle Up: Mariota threw for two or more TDs in half of his 12 games and finished his rookie year with 19 scores and 10 interceptions, so there are definitely things to build on heading into Year Two.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/30/15 4:17pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) was ruled out for the Week 17 finale Sunday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: As feared, the rookie won't be able to make it back this season, leaving Zach Mettenberger to make a second straight start Sunday in Indy.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/29/15 8:34am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (knee) is expected to take part in at least some of practice Wednesday, Dec. 30, according to interim head coach Mike Mularkey.
Huddle Up: Wright has been battling a knee injury for the latter part of the season, but he'll try to go in Week 17.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 12/29/15 3:54pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham went without a catch for the first time in six weeks in Week 16, and he and QB Zach Mettenberger looked to be out of sync. Mettenberger targeted Green-Beckham on just three of his 51 pass attempts.
Huddle Up: Just when the receiver was building a strong rapport with fellow rookie Marcus Mariota -- he entered Week 16 with two 100-yard receiving games in his previous three -- the QB was shelved with a knee injury. Unless Mariota returns for Sunday's regular-season finale, steer clear of Green-Beckham if you can.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/21/15 9:23am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) is believed to have suffered a minor knee sprain in Week 15, according to a source. With two games left, QB Zach Mettenberger could be under center the rest of the way.
Huddle Up: Marietta's shown more than enough in his first NFL season; with the Titans out of the playoff picture, even in the slappy AFC South, no reason to risk further damage.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/21/15 3:57pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) will miss the rest of the season with a medial collateral ligament sprain in his right knee, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The good news for Mariota is he didn't tear the ligament, so he'll be ready to go for offseason programs. Mariota showed a lot of promise as a rookie and he'll be an intriguing QB1 option in 2016 under a new coaching staff.
Dexter McCluster - RBPosted 12/14/15 7:47pm ET
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster is out for the rest of the season after breaking his wrist in Week 14, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
Huddle Up: McCluster led Tennessee RBs with 50 total yards Sunday but his season has ended early, meaning more work for Antonio Andrews and rookie David Cobb.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/11/15 4:28pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs) is out for Week 14.
Huddle Up: The late-season injury bug continues to hit Wright hard, and look for rookie wideout Dorial Green-Beckham and the Titans' tight ends to be the primary beneficiaries.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/9/15 9:08am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs) suffered an injury to his ribs in the Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Wright said Tuesday, Dec. 8, on his radio show.
Huddle Up: Wright had just returned from an injury before suffering the latest malady. His availability for this weekend is uncertain, so if you're banking on him and still alive in your league playoffs keep an eye on the injury report.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 12/7/15 9:04am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham hauled in five receptions for 119 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: It's been a process for DGB this year but he's starting to live up to the promise that made him a second-round pick despite sitting out an entire year of football in 2014. He's a great long-term investment with upside; if the Titans are able to coach him up and let him work with Marcus Mariota they could develop into one of the league's premier fantasy pitch-and-catch combos.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/7/15 9:04am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 20 of his 29 pass attempts for 268 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also led the team with 112 yards rushing on nine carries, and his 87-yard touchdown run broke the franchise's record longest run by a quarterback. The late QB Steve McNair ran for 71 yards in 1998.
Huddle Up: One of Mariota's selling points coming out of Oregon was his rushing ability, and it was on full display during his touchdown dash. But he's also been a legit NFL quarterback, and his pro (and fantasy) future looks bright.
