Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 2/15/15 9:11pm ET
Early indications are the Tennessee Titans are leaning toward giving QB Zach Mettenberger a chance to prove himself as the full-time starter rather than using the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft on Oregon QB Marcus Mariota or Florida State QB Jameis Winston. 'We like Zach, and I think Zach has the tools to play and start in the league,' general manager Ruston Webster said.
Huddle Up: Mettenberger, a 2014 sixth-round pick, averaged 232.5 passing yards and had eight TDs and six interceptions in six starts last last season while going 0-6 and looks as if he showed just enough promise to get another look-see as the starter.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 2/6/15 10:26pm ET
Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Jake Locker could draw interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, according to an NFL agent.
Huddle Up: Surprise: Could another former Pac-12 QB be headed to Philly to join Chip Kelly's crew? Health, though, remains the primary question with Locker, who's only played in 30 out of a possible 64 games in his four seasons in Tennessee.
Ray Horton - DCPosted 2/4/15 12:15am ET
Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton will remain on the staff as the team's defensive coordinator, however newly-hired assistant head coach Dick LeBeau is expected to run the defense, according to a source familiar with the situation. An official announcement is expected later in the week.
Huddle Up: The Titans finished 29th in points allowed and 27th in yards surrendered in Horton's first year as DC, and will be able to draw on LeBeau's years of expertise going forward.
Dexter McCluster - RBPosted 12/30/14 2:13am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dexter McCluster may be more involved in the offense next year, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: More McCluster takes touches off the table for Bishop Sankey, who wasn't given much of an opportunity this season anyway. Guess we'll find out if this is coach-speak or just another strike against Sankey's future fantasy value when the Titans take a quarterback in the draft and begin OTAs.
Charlie Whitehurst - QBPosted 12/24/14 6:30pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Charlie Whitehurst will start in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts, head coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Whitehurst will make a third straight start but it's not going to matter much either way to TE Delanie Walker -- the only Titans the majority of fantasy owners should be using in Week 17.
Leon Washington - RBPosted 12/19/14 10:38am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Leon Washington caught a team-high seven passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in the team's 21-13 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Dec. 18. He also added four carries for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Because when you're steam-rolling towards the first overall pick in the draft, why would you want to give touches to your rookie running back to see if he can carry the load for you going forward when you have perfectly good journeymen like Washington and Shonn Greene you can employ?
Dexter McCluster - RBPosted 12/18/14 5:48pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dexter McCluster (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: McCluster's Nashville debut netted 26 catches for 197 yards, 40 rushes for 131 more and one total TD. In short, a disappointment even for those in deeper leagues hoping to glean even flex-worthy fantasy value out of the WR.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/18/14 8:38pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) is active for Week 16 after being limited in practice all week.
Huddle Up: The Titans' leader in TD receptions will play after missing last week but will be hard to trust given his hand injury and the team's QB situation.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 12/17/14 6:44pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and is questionable for Week 16 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Like most players, Walker is battling through the late-season aches and pains but should play and projects as a solid TE1 this week against the Jags.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/16/14 3:55pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) was limited in practice Tuesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Wright, who has missed the last two games, remains a major question mark with a cracked bone in his hand.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/16/14 7:35pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) missed practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: The rookie isn't returning on a short week and could be done for the season, leaving Charlie Whitehurst to make his fourth start of the year Thursday against the Jags.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 12/15/14 8:18pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) was placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Dec. 15. Locker will undergo shoulder surgery Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Another season, another injury for the star-crossed Locker, likely leaving the Titans' QB chores to Charlie Whitehurst for the rest of the season. Use the Titans' top pass-catchers -- TE Delanie Walker, WR Nate Washington and, possibly, Kendall Wright -- as you normally would over the final two games.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/8/14 3:59pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) is out for the year with an AC joint separation, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Titans will likely go back to Jake Locker at quarterback. He has no fantasy value.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/7/14 8:01pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) suffered a sprained right shoulder in the Week 14 game against the New York Giants, and it is more significant than the one he suffered in Week 13. All indications are that he is likely done for the season.
Huddle Up: The Titans will likely turn back to Jake Locker for the final three games of the season. Locker is not on the fantasy radar.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/5/14 12:10am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) cracked a bone in his right hand when he slipped in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3. Wright didn't practice Thursday, but he has not been ruled out for the team's game against the New York Giants Sunday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: It might be worse than it sounds, but this a WR with a broken bone is his hand just isn't a good mix. With Justin Hunter going down last week, the fantasy stock of Nate Washington and Derek Hagan is rising fast.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/5/14 2:18pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) will not need surgery to fix a cracked bone in his hand, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Definitely good news for Wright owners, but it still remains to be seen if he'll be able to play with the injury. Stay tuned ...
Derek Hagan - WRPosted 12/3/14 12:29am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Derek Hagan is likely to join WRs Kendall Wright and Nate Washington as one of the top-three receivers now that WR Justin Hunter (spleen) is done for the year, starting in Week 14 against the New York Giants. Hagan had been working on special teams and as the team's fourth wideout. He played 32 snaps on offense and caught two passes for 39 yards in Week 13. WR Kris Durham is a young alternative, but the team isn't very high on him, he's not fast, and he's been inactive for 10 games. In the two games Durham was active, he didn't even play a single snap.
Huddle Up: Wright and Washington can't be counted consistently in the Titans' offense so you're going to have to be in a pretty deep league to be considering using Hagan.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/3/14 3:52pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 3. Mettenberger said he definitely will play in Week 14.
Huddle Up: The rookie is certainly optimistic, but let's see how the rest of the practice week goes.
Justin Hunter - WRPosted 12/2/14 4:48pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter was placed on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Dec. 2. Hunter ruptured his spleen in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Tough break for the second-year WR, but in the meantime, it'll mean more targets for Kendall Wright and Nate Washington the rest of the season.
Justin Hunter - WRPosted 12/1/14 2:37pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter (spleen) is expected to be fine after suffering a ruptured spleen in Week 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It's good news for Hunter that he wasn't seriously injured but he's no longer on the fantasy radar. Hunter doesn't need be owned in any format.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/1/14 9:00pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger's (shoulder) injury isn't believed to be serious, and the team is hopeful he can play in Week 14 against the New York Giants, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Sounds like good news for the rookie as he had been doing better than expected prior to his injury. It's likely all going to depend what he can do in practice this week. Stay tuned ...
Justin Hunter - WRPosted 11/30/14 7:06pm ET
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter (spleen) suffered a lacerated spleen in the Week 13 game against the Houston Texans. He will not travel with the team, remaining in a Houston hospital overnight.
Huddle Up: Nate Washington and Kendall Wright will play more snaps now with Hunter out. Wright is the better fantasy start but neither receiver is a great option with Jake Locker likely the quarterback for Tennessee next week.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 11/24/14 8:09pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey suffered a stinger in Week 12 and did not suffer a concussion, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Good news for Sankey, who struggled through a 10-carry, 37-yard outing Sunday in Philly. Monitor his status in practice this week.
Dexter McCluster - RBPosted 11/24/14 8:29pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster is going through the concussion protocol after suffering a concussion in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Tough finish to the game in which McCluster (4 touches-17 total yard) scored his first TD of the season. See how he progresses through the protocol steps if you're counting on him in a deep league.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/21/14 3:00pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker has passed his concussion test and is good to go in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Here's a fantasy TE ray of light here amidst all the other grim news at the position (Dwayne Allen, Jordan Reed, Jordan Cameron and -- possibly -- Julius Thomas).
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/20/14 6:44pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Things are looking up for Walker after missed the Week 11 Monday night loss to the Steelers. He was also scheduled to visit a doctor Thursday, so expect the official word on his status to come out Friday at the latest.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/19/14 6:10pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker remains in the concussion protocol, and he must pass a doctor's test in order to play in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Walker took part in a light practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. He leads the team with 512 yards on 38 catches this year, and he's tied for the team lead with four touchdowns.
Huddle Up: It's a good sign to see Walker out on the field Wednesday, but see if he can carry the momentum through the rest of the week.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/17/14 3:12pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) still needs to pass a concussion test before he is cleared to play in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Walker is a game-time decision. Hopefully fantasy owners made other arrangements for a tight end this week and didn't wait on Walker. Even if he plays, Walker isn't a great option in Tennessee's struggling offense.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/17/14 7:59pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) is inactive for the team's Week 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: As expected, the Titans' receiving yards leader will be out tonight and miss his first game of the season. It's a big dropoff down to Chase Coffman, who has 2 catches for 18 yards this season, and a big loss for rookie QB Zach Mettenberger, who is making his third career start.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/15/14 12:37am ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) did not particiapte in practice Friday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Walker has not practiced all week and has to be considered a longshot to play Monday night against the Steelers. Get your backup plan in order now.
