  Titans | Marcus Mariota made history in 2016    Mon Feb 20, 04:23 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Mariota is still recovering from a broken fibula, and he's unlikely to be ready for OTAs in the spring. The Titans are going to be wisely cautious with their young franchise quarterback. Expect the team to put better weapons around him this offseason through the draft and free agency. In 2016, he finished as the no. 13 fantasy quarterback in standard-scoring leagues. Mariota should be considered a QB2 with QB1 upside for fantasy owners in 2017.

  Titans | Career year for Rishard Matthews     Mon Feb 20, 04:15 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Entering his first season with the Titans in 2016, Matthews quickly developed strong chemistry with QB Marcus Mariota. After a career year, Matthews should be considered a WR2 with a nose for the end zone in 2017.

  Titans | Tennessee open to trading pick?    Sat Feb 18, 09:03 PM

  Titans | Marcus Mariota likely out until camp    Wed Feb 15, 02:12 PM

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.

Footballguys view: That's the wise move for the Titans. Mariota's recovery is on schedule, but there's no need to rush him back during the offseason. They may even ease him back in at the start of training camp. However, Mariota should be ready to rock by Week 1 of the regular season.

  Titans | Injury won't slow Marcus Mariota    Sun Feb 12, 09:03 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) is going to be fine following surgery to repair a fractured fibula, according to Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles, who had the same surgery in 2006. 'So Marcus is going to be good to go,' Sproles said. 'He'll probably be better than ever.'

Footballguys view: Mariota finished 2016 as the no. 13 fantasy quarterback in standard-scoring leagues. That makes him a QB2 with great upside heading into 2017. The team should add more weapons around Mariota this offseason, and he's likely to be near full strength by Week 1.

  Titans | Delanie Walker wants a deep threat    Fri Feb 10, 11:27 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The Titans will likely lose Kendall Wright,, and they should look for a playmaker like Walker is describing in free agency or the draft. With over $64 million in cap space (4th-most in the NFL), the Titans should be one of the most active teams on the open market.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota owns Titans record    Tue Feb 7, 11:36 PM

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.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota consistent in 2016    Wed Jan 25, 06:52 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Mariota saw his yardage go up significantly (from 2,818 to 3,426), along with his touchdowns (from 19 to 26) overall, and really continued to take big strides this season. It's interesting his numbers were about the same on the road as they were at home and it makes him a consistent fantasy starter as you know where he plays isn't a huge factor.

  Titans | Jason McCourty nearing the end in Tennessee?    Mon Jan 23, 01:36 PM

Tennessee Titans CB Jason McCourty is due $7 million next season and 'will have to fight to retain his starting spot if he is not released as a cap cut', according to TitanInsider.com's Terry McCormick.

Footballguys view: McCourty has been with the Titans since they selected him out of Rutgers in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL draft. He might be willing to take a pay cut to stay with the team.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota on track in recovery    Thu Jan 19, 12:11 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Mariota was really making strides as a quarterback, so we hope he isn't held back by the injury. For a guy who is dangerous when mobile, a leg injury is always a concern long-term.

  Titans | Kendall Wright expects to play elsewhere    Thu Jan 5, 12:28 AM

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.

Footballguys view: It's been a long time since Wright's best season (2013) where he had 94 catches, 1,079 receiving yards and two touchdowns. This season, Wright was targeted only 43 times, caught 29 passes for 416 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. We can't imagine the market will be white-hot for his services.

Tennessee Titans RB David Fluellen, WR Jonathan Krause, WR KJ Maye, TE Jerome Cunningham, OT Tyler Marz, OL Karim Barton and LB Kourtnei Brown to reserve/future contracts Monday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: Any running back in 'Exotic Smashmouth' is worth keeping an eye on for fantasy owners. Fluellen is a good all-purpose player with natural instincts for running the ball. In super deep dynasty leagues, he's a name we'll continue to monitor.

  Titans | No surgery for DeMarco Murray for now    Mon Jan 2, 01:24 PM

Footballguys view: Murray played through the injury this year, but he clearly wasn't himself after the injury. We'll know more about his recovery as the offseason rolls on for the soon-to-be 29-year old back.

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted nine receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Houston Texans. He was targeted 13 times.

Footballguys view: Matthews finished only 55 yards short of 1000 on a run-first team, which is impressive for a reasonably priced free agent wide receiver. He's earned draftable status for 2017 fantasy drafts.

  Titans | DeMarco Murray inches to title    Sun Jan 1, 07:05 PM

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray entered Week 17 against the Houston Texans needing just two yards for the most rushing yards in the AFC. He posted 11 runs for just 21 yards, his worst performance of the season, but it was good enough.

Footballguys view: Murray has been playing through an injury and his production slowed a bit at the end of the season. It was still a triumphant campaign in fantasy leagues and the NFL alike for Murray, and he might have earned his 6.25 million dollar salary next year, slowing the arrival of Derrick Henry in dynasty leagues.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 27. QB Alex Tanney was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad in a subsequent move.

Footballguys view: Matt Cassel will be the starting quarterback for the Titans in Week 17. Mariota is going to have a metal plate inserted into his leg, and he's likely to miss all the OTAs and workouts in the spring. However, it looks like a return for training camp is very likely.

  Titans | Matt Cassel officially named starter    Mon Dec 26, 04:54 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Matt Cassel was name the starter for Week 17 by head coach Mike Mularkey. Mularkey was noncommittal on QB Alex Tanney possibly playing.

Footballguys view: Tanney is the best trick-shot QB in the league...seriously, look him up on YouTube. However, he doesn't have the experience that Cassel does. Cassel should be able to make the Texans defense a strong fantasy or DFS play in Week 17, but we seriously doubt his ability to move the offense with consistency or potency.
