  Titans | David Cobb let go    Tue Aug 30, 04:07 PM

Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb was waived Tuesday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: The Titans backfield was jam-packed with the free agent addition of DeMarco Murray and the second-round selection of Derrick Henry this year. Cobb is an instinctive runner but he lacks the quickness or burst to be a successful pro back. He was competing with Antonio Andrews and Bishop Sankey for a low spot on the depth chart.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota might play Thursday    Tue Aug 30, 12:21 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota might play a series against the Miami Dolphins in the preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 1, head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Mariota is a young QB, so added time playing against an opponent can be of value but we don't think he needs to play much if at all in the preseason finale. Mariota may get pulled quickly, then Matt Cassel and Alex Tanney will take over the QB duties.

  Titans | Kendall Wright expects to be ready    Tue Aug 30, 12:19 AM

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) said Monday, Aug. 29, that he is feeling better and he thinks he will be ready to play in the team's Week 1 opener. Wright will not play in the preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Even if Wright plays, don't expect a lot from him. Rookie Tajae Sharpe is a nice 'lottery ticket' pick late in your draft. He and Rishard Matthews will be the top two targets for the Titans this year (at the WR position).

  Titans | Kendall Wright aggravates hamstring    Mon Aug 29, 06:43 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) strained his hamstring again in practice Monday, Aug. 29. He will not play in the final preseason game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: More bad news for Wright here. He's missed most of camp and the preseason due to hamstring problems, and now he's down again. Fantasy owners shouldn't worry because they weren't adding him anyway. Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe will be the two lead receivers on what should be a run-heavy offense.

  Titans | Antonio Andrews in lead for No. 3 RB job    Fri Aug 26, 05:12 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews has a slight edge on RBs David Cobb and Bishop Sankey for the No. 3 running back job in part because of his special teams play, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Andrews was very good last year on a bad team, and in the event of injuries to Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry, he could fit well in the run-heavy approach of the Mike Mularkey Titans. Cobb would likely get picked up quickly if the Titans decide to let him go. Bishop Sankey is a mere afterthought at this point.

  Titans | HC vows to get Derrick Henry on field    Thu Aug 25, 12:54 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will get onto the field, as head coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday, Aug. 24, that he will find ways to use Henry even though RB DeMarco Murray is the starter.

Footballguys view: That could be tough if Demarco Murray plays as well as it sounds like he will. That said, reports indicate that Murray has been a solid mentor to Henry so down the road Henry could see some burn. Murray remains the workhorse here, though, and is a solid RB2 while Henry is relegated to an RB4 status barring injury.

  Titans | Kendall Wright remains sidelined    Thu Aug 25, 12:52 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) continues to miss practice due to a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Wright's time with the team could be short. Free agent acquisition Rishard Matthews and rookie Tajae Sharpe are both playing well, and there is some veteran depth the team has brought in with Andre Johnson and Harry Douglas. Wright has to get healthy, and soon, or he will have no impact this season. As it is, we see him as no more than a WR6.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota shines in no-huddle offense    Wed Aug 24, 01:11 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said the no-huddle offense is comfortable for him because of his experience operating it last season and during college. Mariota complete all six of his passing attempts, including a 21-yard touchdown pass to WR Harry Douglas during an 81-yard drive utilizing the no-huddle offense against the Carolina Panthers Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: This shouldn't be a surprise as Mariota ran a fast-paced offense in college at Oregon. He thrives when in that situation, but the second-year pro needs to show better timing when staying on rhythm within the standard offense. We love Mariota's upside, but for fantasy owners he's just a QB2 due to the Titans run-heavy philosophy.

  Titans | Craig Stevens retires    Tue Aug 23, 05:35 PM

  Titans | Kendall Wright unlikely to play    Mon Aug 22, 05:26 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) is doubtful to play in Week 3 of the preseason, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Hamstring injuries are devastating for speedy receivers like Wright. When healthy, he'll serve as the slot receiver for the Titans with Rishard Matthews and rookie Tajae Sharp on the outside.

  Titans | Kendall Wright could return soon    Sun Aug 21, 04:27 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) may return to practice Wednesday, Aug. 24. He is questionable to play in Week 3 of the preseason.

Footballguys view: Wright is just one of many viable targets in the Tennessee passing game, and as a slot receiver, he is unlikely to play a full complement of snaps in any given game. Add in this hamstring issue and it doesn't seem like he is worth drafting this year.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota mostly sharp against Carolina    Sat Aug 20, 06:11 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota went 9-for-10 for 104 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, Aug. 20. He added 13 yards on the ground before giving way to QB Matt Cassel early in the second quarter.

Footballguys view: Mariota has been highly efficient this summer, but it doesn't appear that he'll be piloting a high volume pass offense or get a lot of opportunities as a runner by design. He's a QBBC/streamer option because of the nature of his offense.

  Titans | Tajae Sharpe continues to impress    Sat Aug 20, 06:09 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe finished with six receptions for 68 yards against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Sharpe is basically set as a rookie starter for the Titans. He probably won't have fantasy value on his own, but he'll be good enough to hold down the weekly and season-long ceilings of the other targets.

  Titans | Justin Hunter on outside looking in?    Thu Aug 18, 12:54 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is not projected to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Paul Kuharsky.

Footballguys view: The Titans have been awful at drafting receivers. Dorial Green-Beckham is gone, Hunter is on his way out and Kendall Wright is likely not far behind. Suffice to say, Hunter won't have fantasy value even if he squeaks onto the team.

  Titans | Harry Douglas, Tre McBride battling    Thu Aug 18, 12:53 AM

Tennessee Titans WRs Harry Douglas and Tre McBride are battling each other, as well as veteran WR Andre Johnson, for one or perhaps two receiver spots on the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: All three are basically irrelevant for fantasy purposes and should not be on your roster.

  Titans | Chances better for Andre Johnson    Thu Aug 18, 12:52 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Andre Johnson was no guarantee for a roster spot earlier this week, but the trade of WR Dorial Green-Beckham to the Philadelphia Eagles increases his chances of making this team. Johnson might be battling with WRs Harry Douglas and Tre McBride for one or two receiver spots.

Footballguys view: Johnson and Douglas are both well past their primes so if there is a cut, we expect it to be one of them. Neither brings much to the table save veteran savvy and "I remember when" old-man stories, and none of that helps your fantasy team, so don't bother drafting them.

  Titans | Kendall Wright to work from slot    Thu Aug 18, 12:51 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) is expected to serve as the team's third wide receiver working out of the slot. He has been dealing with a hamstring injury since early in camp, but in the first few days he appeared energized, according to beat writer Paul Kuharsky.

Footballguys view: This is probably Wright's last chance to show he can produce. His numbers have continually declined over the last three years, in part because he has struggled on the field, but also because he has struggled to stay healthy. That he is already battling a hamstring issue is concerning and makes us confident he is no more than a WR6 at best.

  Titans | Delanie Walker to be targeted most?    Thu Aug 18, 12:50 AM

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker is expected to remain the primary pass target, according to beat writer Paul Kuharsky, although the team will try to spread the ball around to a lot of different people.

Footballguys view: A combination of things could be at play here. It could be that quarterback Marcus Mariota is still getting in sync with rookie Tajae Sharpe and newly arrived Rishard Matthews. It could be that Mariota is not yet comfortable with longer passes and will be expected to throw short stuff against mismatched linebackers. It could just be that Walker and Mariota are just really good as a pair. Whatever the reason, it reaffirms our faith that Walker is a TE1 in fantasy circles.

Tennessee Titans LB Kevin Dodd (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Their early second-round pick has the upside to be a quality defender in the NFL. The rookie has a relentless motor and does a good job of finding the ball-carrier as plays break down in front of him. Expect the Titans to be cautious with Dodd as he returns from this injury.

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham and WR Justin Hunter were slapped with an 'inconsistent' tag when head coach Mike Mularkey was asked about their performance in the preseason opener.

Footballguys view: Green-Beckham's problems aren't just motivation fodder. He doesn't have a core role in the passing game and is only worth drafting in leagues with long benches or long play bonuses right now. Fifth-round pick Tajae Sharpe's spot in the starting lineup is getting more and more firm every day.

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey carried three times for 52 yards with a 41-yard touchdown scamper in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 13, against the San Diego Chargers.

Footballguys view: Sankey is in a make-or-break year for the Titans. The backfield will be primarily DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry, so there's no fantasy value for Sankey even if he makes the final roster. Perhaps he'd be able to jump-start his career on a new team.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran 10 times for 74 yards with a touchdown in his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 13, against the San Diego Chargers.

Footballguys view: The rookie is a swift runner with build-up power when he gets up to speed. Henry is a RB4 for fantasy owners as he'll be working in a RBBC with starter DeMarco Murray.

  Titans | DeMarco Murray makes presence felt    Sun Aug 14, 12:43 AM

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray rushed six times for 93 yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 13, against the San Diego Chargers. The highlight of his night was a 71-yard touchdown scamper.

Footballguys view: We like Murray as a low-end RB2 this year for fantasy owners. The Titans are going to run the ball as much as possible this year with Murray leading the way. The veteran is going to split time in their 'exotic smashmouth' offense with rookie Derrick Henry.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota sharp in limited duty    Sun Aug 14, 12:43 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed all five of his pass attempts for 45 yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 13, against the San Diego Chargers. He played three series before checking out.

Footballguys view: Mariota has intriguing upside as a pro, but from a fantasy lens he should only be considered a low-end QB2. The Titans are going to be a run-heavy offense, and that will limit what Mariota is going to do through the air.

  Titans | Dexter McCluster should return    Thu Aug 11, 01:53 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 11, because of an excused absence but is expected to return to the team later in the day.

Footballguys view: So far down on the depth chart in the backfield at this point, this has minimal impact on fantasy rosters. This is Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry's show. If they split carries, Murray will be an RB3 with Henry as an RB4. But if Murray gets sole possession of the carries, he should be an RB2. McCluster isn't worth rostering.
