  Titans | Harry Douglas impressed with rookie WRs    Mon Jun 26, 07:11 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Harry Douglas said he is impressed with how WRs Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor performed during offseason workouts. 'I can tell already they are going to be special. They listen, they go hard, and they both make plays. So it is good when you have young guys who can come in and do those things,' Douglas said.

Footballguys view: Davis is the player to highlight here for redraft leagues (although we do love Taylor in dynasty formats). Coming out of Western Michigan, Davis was a standout player with a heavy target load and an insane amount of competitive spirit. His routes are crisp and his hands are strong, so we expect Davis to become a favorite target of QB Marcus Mariota - and he could be an early factor in the red zone. His current ADP of WR39 (8.08) could end up being a big value in 2017.

  Titans | Eric Weems likely will make team    Sat Jun 24, 04:09 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Weems likely will make the 53-man roster because of his ability to be a kick and punt returner.

Footballguys view: Weems played only 16 snaps for the Falcons in 2016 and didn't get a single target on offense. He's a return man only but should be able to find a place in the now crowded Titans WR corps.

  Titans | Khalfani Muhammad looking to contribute    Fri Jun 23, 11:30 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Khalfani Muhammad said he feels he brings a different element to the offense than the other backs on the roster, and he is looking forward to contributing on special teams with 'electrifying' plays.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick out of Cal this year, Muhammad is tough for a scatback of 170 pounds. He's tough and explosive, but Muhammad never had a return touchdown in college. Muhammad is no lock for the 53-man roster.

  Titans | Tajae Sharpe the odd man out?    Thu Jun 22, 09:21 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (foot) is going to have a 'hard time' being in shape for the start of training camp because of his foot injury, according to head coach Mike Mularkey, but Mularkey said Sharpe will have a chance to compete for a role in the offense.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly around here. Sharpe started last year as a rookie and hauled in 41 passes for the Titans. This year, Sharpe has a tenuous hold on his roster spot. He's not going to be a fantasy factor behind Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor.

  Titans | Eric Decker contract details    Tue Jun 20, 07:11 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker's one-year deal is worth up to $5.35 million, according to a source. The deal comes with a $2.5 million signing bonus, a $1.35 million salary and up to $1.50 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: Decker could be a very interesting addition to this offense and might be a good fit as the No. 2 there. Two things will impact that. First is the health of Marcus Mariota, which looks good. Second will be how quickly rookie Corey Davis starts drawing coverage. When he's the focal point of a secondary, Decker can struggle. When he has a legit number one across from him, though, he can be very productive. Right now, Decker is trending with an overall ADP of 102 and is the 39th receiver off the board. We suspect that will get more expensive as summer goes by and the market adjusts to his new situation.

  Titans | Eric Decker joins Tennessee    Sun Jun 18, 08:59 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) has signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to a source. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Decker gives QB Marcus Mariota another quality target to throw to in 2017. The Titans have revamped their WR corps with the addition of Corey Davis (first round) and Decker this offseason. Decker was banged up last year (hip, shoulder) and only made it through three games. He should be full strength for the start of the regular season and should be considered a WR3 with upside for fantasy owners.

  Titans | Derrick Henry showing more speed    Sat Jun 17, 11:21 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry looks faster this offseason, according to head coach Mike Mularkey, and Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com said Henry has looked more comfortable catching the ball.

Footballguys view: Henry is just waiting in the wings behind starter Demarco Murray. When Henry gets his chance, he should be able to thrive in the Titans system. As it stands right now, Henry is an expensive (but worth it) handcuff you can get around RB25 in your fantasy draft.

  Titans | Corey Davis playing physical    Sat Jun 17, 10:48 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis' strength has stood out during drills, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com, and Wyatt said Davis has been able to make contested catches in traffic.

Footballguys view: That's what Davis does best. He is a tough receiver who isn't afraid of contact and can rip away contested passes from defenders. That's why he should become a favorite target of QB Marcus Mariota. He's a WR3 with upside for fantasy owners in 2017.

  Titans | Eric Decker visiting Tennessee    Wed Jun 14, 01:35 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) is meeting with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, June 14.

Footballguys view: This is Decker's first (but not likely last) visit since the Jets released him. The Titans have revamped their WR corps this offseason with the additions of rookies Corey Davis (first round) and Taywan Taylor (third round) in the 2017 NFL draft. Adding Decker would give them more of a veteran presence at the position. Expect Decker to shop his services around before making a final decision.

  Titans | Corey Davis full go at minicamp    Tue Jun 13, 03:43 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (ankle) said his ankle is at full health after participating fully during minicamp Tuesday, June 13.

Footballguys view: Davis required minor surgery after injuring his ankle in preparation for the 2017 NFL draft. The Titans have been taking it easy with him so far, and that should continue through minicamp. All reports indicate the no5 pick in the 2017 NFL draft will be full go for training camp.

  Titans | Tajae Sharpe out of cast    Tue Jun 13, 01:51 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (foot) had the cast on his foot removed, and he's now in a boot.

Footballguys view: With the additions of Corey Davis (first round) and Taywan Taylor (third round) in the 2017 NFL draft, Sharpe is now fourth on the depth chart at best. His pro career got started with a 7-76 line in Week 1 of his rookie season, but it was all downhill after that even though he played a full 16 games. This year, don't expect Sharpe to be much of a fantasy factor.

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (finger) is expected to have his cast removed Monday, June 12.

  Titans | Corey Davis headed for 1,000 yards?    Fri Jun 9, 09:40 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis has the tools to become the No. 1 target for QB Marcus Mariota this season, according to NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt, and Brandt believes Davis could become the first Tennessee receiver to top 1,000 yards since 2013.

Footballguys view: Davis certainly has the ability to take on a heavy target load. He had outstanding four-year production in college at Western Michigan, finishing his college career as the all-time leader in receiving yards (5,285) at the FBS level. He's a crisp route-runner who plays with elite concentration. Expect the top-5 pick to quickly become a favorite of QB Marcus Mariota.

  Titans | DeMarco Murray injury update    Fri Jun 9, 07:02 PM

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (finger) said he recently had surgery to repair a lingering issue in with his right ring finger.

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (foot) suffered a foot injury last week and underwent surgery. He is expected to be ready for training camp, however, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Expectations are pretty low for Sharpe in 2017 with Ridshard Matthews, rookie Corey Davis, and Taywan Taylor ahead of him. He's going to have a hard time breaking into the rotation on a consistent basis.

  Titans | DeMarco Murray wearing a cast    Thu Jun 8, 02:04 PM

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hand) was sporting a cast on his hand Thursday, June 8, after undergoing a procedure, but head coach Mike Mularkey expects Murray to be good to go by training camp.

Footballguys view: We'll keep an eye on this. While the rumor has been that Derrick Henry will get some more carries this year, as long as Murray is healthy and effective, we expect him to continue being the lead back in Tennessee. He'll be one of the top backs in fantasy this year, and the community knows it since he's trending with an ADP of 17 overall and is currently the No. 8 running back off the board.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota practicing more    Tue Jun 6, 03:13 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) participated in full team snaps at organized team activities Tuesday, June 6.

Footballguys view: The expectation is he will be ready for camp, so this is about where we expect him to be. The real test will be when he gets hit - fully and with aggressive force, not by a teammate - and how he reacts. Some athletes get tentative, while some seem as if they are exactly the same as they were pre-injury. Mariota's ADP is hovering at 100 overall and the 13th quarterback taken. While he has the talent to be one of the top fantasy quarterbacks, his injury and some changes around him may hamper his overall effectiveness this year.

Free-agent WR Mekale McKay (Broncos) agreed with the Tennessee Titans on an undisclosed deal Tuesday, June 6. CB John Green (undisclosed) was waived/injured.

Footballguys view: McKay isn't a great route runner and is known to struggle with drops. However, he's a field-stretcher who can take the top off the defense. Undrafted out of Cincinnati in 2016, McKay will be a long-shot to make the 53-man roster.

  Titans | Tennessee signs Taywan Taylor    Mon Jun 5, 04:02 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor signed his four-year rookie contract Monday, June 5. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Western Kentucky, Taylor is a fantastic receiver after the catch. He can get quickly and cleanly out of his break, and Taylor does all the little things well to help out his quarterback. He knows how to find the soft spot in a zone and he gets his head around quickly on deep passes. Taylor will compete for the no3 WR job in Tennessee behind Rishard Matthews and fellow rookie Corey Davis.

  Titans | Alex Tanney delivering in OTAs    Sun Jun 4, 09:19 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Alex Tanney has looked good during OTAs, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com, and Wyatt believes Tanney will benefit from the extra reps created by the injury to QB Matt Cassel (thumb).

Footballguys view: Hit up YouTube and check out Alex Tanney as a trick-shot quarterback. He's amazing when it comes to throwing a football into a trash can from the fourth floor, but playing NFL quarterback is a much different skill set. Undrafted out of Monmouth in 2012, Tanney has spent time with seven teams during his pro career. Once Cassel is healthy, Tanney will go back to being third on the depth chart and is no lock for the 53-man roster.

  Titans | Corey Davis doing more work    Fri Jun 2, 11:11 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (ankle) has done more in practices of late and could be turned loose for more soon.

Footballguys view: The Titans made Davis the first WR off the board (no5 overall) in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. Davis is a savvy route runner who knows how to create separation in his routes. The Western Michigan prospect drew comparisons to Michael Thomas (Saints) or Eric Decker (Jets) before the draft. In the Titans run-heavy system, Davis has WR3 upside (and a WR4 price tag) for fantasy owners.

  Titans | Taywan Taylor making plays    Fri Jun 2, 11:10 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor is always making plays in organized team activities, according to beat writer Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: The third-round pick out of Western Kentucky is an exciting player to watch from the slot. He can break ankles in his routes and get open cleanly. He didn't run the full route tree in college, but that's part of his game that should come around. There are plenty of ways (screen passes, jet sweeps) to get Taylor the ball in order to feature his natural athleticism.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has looked great in OTAs, according to head coach Mike Mularkey, and offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said he will find a way to use both Henry and RB DeMarco Murray.

Footballguys view: Henry is a must-handcuff for Demarco Murray's fantasy owners out there. If Murray goes down, Henry easily has RB1 potential in the Titans run-heavy system. His current ADP is RB29 (7.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | DeMarco Murray looks sharp    Sun May 28, 09:14 PM

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray looked good during OTAs and showed no signs of the toe injury that hampered him at the end of last season, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com.

Footballguys view: Murray can be a beast in the Titans backfield, and he's certainly a quality fantasy asset. As the lead back, Murray is a clear cut RB1 and could finish as a top-5 fantasy running back. His current ADP is RB8 (2.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | Corey Davis working his way back    Sun May 28, 09:00 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (ankle) had his workload increased throughout the week of OTAs as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Western Michigan can be a dominant player when healthy. One of the most productive players in this draft class, Davis can break ankles as a route runner and was a touchdown hog in college. Davis should be good to go for training camp, and he should start from day one.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota participating    Thu May 25, 10:52 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) took part in the first 10 organized team activities Tuesday, May 23. He did everything in the walkthrough, individual drills and in 7-on-7 drills. "It felt great," Mariota said after practice. 'Four months ago I wasn't sure I was going to be able to participate in OTAs, and being able to do some of the drills,' Mariota said. 'I was very happy and very grateful. It was fun to be out there with the guys, and I enjoyed it.'

Footballguys view: That's promising as it feels like the only thing holding Mariota back from a big 2017 is his recovery from the fractured right fibula which ended his season. He may not play much this preseason, but we're expecting him to be ready to go for camp and the regular season and feel like he could be a top option in fantasy for 2017.

Footballguys view: Jackson was arguably the most athletic player in the 2017 NFL draft. The Titans selected him 18th overall in the first round, and he should be an instant impact player on special teams as a return man. On defense, Jackson has the speed to cover anybody and the ball skills to make field-flipping plays.

Free-agent WR Darius Jennings (Browns) and undrafted free-agent FB Joe Bacci signed undisclosed deals with the Tennessee Titans on Friday, May 19.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Virginia in 2015, Jennings has bounced around to four different teams during his pro career. Jennings is fast and athletic, but he needs improved concentration as a receiver. He would work as a returner for the Titans if they want him to.

Tennessee Titans TE Jonnu Smith signed his four-year rookie contract Tuesday, May 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: While in college at Florida International, Smith often drew comparisons to Delanie Walker...and now he gets to learn behind Walker on the Titans depth chart. He's got the speed to work down the middle of the seam deep, but he can also run underneath routes and is a threat after the catch.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota could see some action in OTAs    Sun May 14, 11:33 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) is not yet running full-speed after fracturing his right fibula late last season, but the coaching staff is attempting to figure out how to get him - along with injured rookie WR Corey Davis - on the field together sooner than later. Organized team activities run from May 23 to June 8, and there is a chance both could see limited work during that time.

Footballguys view: The Titans will be cautious with Mariota, so if he's just not ready they won't push him. All reports have been positive about his recovery, but his participation level for the offseason is in question. Mariota should do more in training camp and the preseason, and it looks like he'll be ready for Week 1.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota will not be rushed back    Sat May 13, 06:27 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota's status for off-season work remains in the 'to be determined' department, according to TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: We doubt Mariota practices much if at all this offseason. The goal is to have him ready for Week 1 of the regular season, so he might even be limited to start training camp. We'll know more about his status as August draws near. He was the no.13 fantasy QB in 2016 (standard scoring leagues) and could crack into the top 10 this year with the added weapons around him in the passing game.
