  Titans | Derrick Henry unfazed by stacked boxes    Thu May 21, 10:56 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry led the league with 106 carries against defenses with eight or more defenders in the box in 2019, according to ESPN's Matt Bowen. Additionally, he ranked third in the league among running backs with 5.4 yards per carry on those rushing attempts.

Footballguys view: Henry is tough to slow down, stacked boxes or no. The fear with a stacked box is if Henry gets through the first wave then he has the speed to make a house call from anywhere on the field. Good luck stopping him in 2020 as Henry will continue to be the battering ram for the Titans offense.

  Titans | A.J. Brown in rare company    Wed May 20, 09:27 PM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown in 2019 became the first rookie since Hall of Famer Randy Moss (1998) to have a minimum of 50 catches, 1,000 receiving yards and five touchdowns while averaging 17-plus yards per catch, plus four touchdown catches of 50-plus yards, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.

Footballguys view: The Titans have something special with the 2019 second-round pick. Brown is also the only NFL rookie since 1970 with 1,000-plus receiving yards and an average of 20-plus yards per reception, and he led the NFL with 605 receiving yards over his final six games of the regular season.

  Titans | A.J. Brown working out with teammate    Wed May 20, 07:47 PM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown said he has been working out with QB Logan Woodside and catches passes from him two to three times a week. Brown planned to work out with QB Ryan Tannehill this offseason before the restrictions.

Footballguys view: Brown is getting work in with the Titans backup, and he'll get back with Tannehill when restrictions are lifted. The second-year pro should continue to progress as a pro. He just showed us the tip of the iceberg last year as a rookie. This year, Brown could finish as a top-5 fantasy receiver. He was the no.8 fantasy WR last year in standard-scoring leagues.

  Titans | Three-step drops suit Ryan Tannehill    Sun May 17, 05:19 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill completed 96 of his 138 pass attempts for 1,356 yards, 12 touchdowns and two interceptions on three-step drops in 2019. Those marks allowed him to post a league-best 123.9 passer rating on three-step drops.

Footballguys view: Three-step drops allow Tannehill to make quick decisions with the ball. The Titans run the ball really well and that usually makes defenses pay more attention to Derrick Henry. When Tannehill has to throw, the team likes to make things quick and decisive for the veteran quarterback.

  Titans | Tennessee could look for veteran No. 2 QB    Sat May 16, 06:09 PM

Tennessee Titans QBs Logan Woodside and Cole McDonald are expected to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp, but the Titans could consider signing a veteran backup quarterback if neither of the quarterbacks impress during camp, in the opinion of TennesseeTitans.com's Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: The Titans won't add anyone like Cam Newton, who could be a threat to Ryan Tannehill at the top of the depth chart. Instead, look for a veteran like Joe Flacco (when healthy) to potentially be an option for the Titans as they look for veteran experience in the QB room behind Tannehill.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill excelled on difficult throws    Thu May 14, 06:09 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill led all qualified passers in 2019 with a completion percentage over expected of plus-8.0 percent, according to Next Gen Stats. The stat measures the difference between a QB's actual completion percentage and expected completion percentage based on the level of difficulty of their throws.

Footballguys view: Tannehill looked like a different quarterback during his time with the Titans last year. He was able to make difficult throws and receivers like A.J. Brown came through for him in a big way. We'll see if he can repeat and continue his performance this year now that the Titans have paid him a big price.

  Titans | Jonnu Smith working out with QB    Wed May 13, 03:48 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Jonnu Smith said he has been working out with QB Ryan Tannehill at a local park over the last few weeks so they can improve their chemistry.

Footballguys view: Smith took over for Delanie Walker for the Titans last year. Walker failed to stay healthy again, and the team moved on from the veteran this offseason. Smith posted career-best numbers in 2019 and could best those totals in 2020. He was the no.17 fantasy tight end last year (standard-scoring leagues) and could break into low-end TE1 range with the role all to himself. His current ADP is TE18 (13.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | Steve Underwood retires    Fri May 8, 11:56 AM

Tennessee Titans chief executive officer Steve Underwood told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Friday, May 8, he has retired 'a few days ago' but will remain a consultant to the team. Senior vice president of business operations and chief legal officer Burke Nihill replaces Underwood as the team president.

Footballguys view: Underwood has been with the team for 40 years, all the way back to the Oilers days. He had four-year retirement from 2011-2015 which he ended to be the team's CEO and President.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is the only running back in the league with at least 500 carries since 2017 to average at least four yards after contact, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: There's no need for advanced data here. Everyone who has seen Henry play one down knows he is tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. Expect him to put up similar numbers before and after contact in 2020.

  Titans | Corey Davis' option declined    Fri May 1, 10:55 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis' fifth-year option was declined Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. With the fifth-year option, Davis would have made $15.6 million in 2021. Now, he'll make $8.1 million in the final year of his contract this season. Davis has yet to play up to his potential and the team has a No.1 WR in A.J. Brown. A change of scenery could do him some good.

  Titans | Darrynton Evans adds speed to Tennessee    Wed Apr 29, 01:18 PM

The Tennessee Titans added some lightning to their running game with the selection of RB Darrynton Evans in the third-round of the NFL Draft. Evans believes his speed and play style meshes well with RB Derrick Henry's style. 'I can change the pace of the game whether you need 80 yards on a quick play or just any kind of explosive plays. I just feel like I can get the job done and we can be a great little combination,' Evans said. Evans was clocked at 4.41 in the 40-yard dash at the combine and his one-cut ability makes him dangerous in the open field, as does his run-after-catch talents on screen plays. The team could also utilize Evans on special teams.

Footballguys view: Evans has speed for days but he's a bit of a 'rail' runner meaning that he's on a track and don't ask him to change direction. He doesn't win with elusiveness and instead is patient and balanced in what he does with the ball. We expect Evans to win the No.2 job for the Titans behind Derrick Henry.

  Titans | Battle for No. 2 RB in Tennessee     Wed Apr 29, 12:33 PM

Tennessee Titans rookie RB Darrynton Evans is expected to compete with RBs Dalyn Dawkins and Shaun Wilson for the No. 2 running back role behind starter Derrick Henry.

Footballguys view: We'll give the edge to Evans in this competition although training camp will tell who comes out on top. Evans is patient, balanced and fast as a runner. He's more of a rhythm runner or 'rail runner' than someone who is going to create on his own with moves and elusiveness.

  Titans | Competition at QB2 in Tennessee?    Wed Apr 29, 12:31 PM

Tennessee Titans rookie QB Cole McDonald, a seventh-round selection, will add competition at the backup quarterback position behind starter Ryan Tannehill. McDonald is viewed more as a developmental quarterback at this point. He'll compete with Logan Woodside.

Footballguys view: McDonald is an interesting developmental quarterback for the Titans. We should see him win the No.2 job behind Tannehill in training camp. Fantasy GMs in deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring his progress. McDonald loves to take chances with the football as a passer. That's admirable but he needs to dial that back a bit and be a little safer with the ball if he wants to make it in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Evans has big-play ability and can rip off 20-plus yard runs consistently. He's got a nose for the end zone and wastes little motion as a runner. Evans will be a backup to Derrick Henry with the Titans, but he's a player we appreciate in dynasty formats.

The Tennessee Titans could look to spend a third-day NFL Draft pick on a backup quarterback or dip into the free-agent market to find competition for QB Logan Woodside, who is the current backup to QB Ryan Tannehill.

Footballguys view: Every good team should draft a quarterback late each year. They need to draft and develop a passer behind Tannehill.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry amassed a league-high 968 yards rushing after contact in 2019 - a significant jump from the 656 yards rushing after contact that ranked second in the NFL in 2018.

Footballguys view: Henry is a human battering ram. He's incredibly tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. Expect more of the same from Henry in 2020 as the centerpiece of the Titans offense.

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown averaged 8.9 yards after the catch per reception in 2019 - the fifth-best mark among qualified players in the league.

Footballguys view: Brown was the best rookie receiver in the league last year. He's got strength to push through arm tackles with ease. Brown also has speed to go with that strength so he can just run by unsuspecting defenders. We're excited to see what he has in store for year two in the NFL.

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry signed his franchise tender Thursday, April 2. Henry and the Titans remain committed to reaching a long-term agreement before the July 15 deadline.

Footballguys view: Henry is now guaranteed a one-year price of $10.2 million. The two sides should get a long-term deal done before the deadline to do so in the summer. Henry is going to be the bellcow for the Titans as a runner and we think he could get more work as a receiver too in 2020. He is no doubt a RB1 for Fantasy GMs.

Henry is the centerpiece of what the Titans do on offense, and he'll continue to be that for them in 2020 and beyond (if/when they work out a new deal). It's going to be expensive as Henry will be one of the highest-paid running backs in the league once he gets a new contract.
