Summary

Another injury-plagued season leaves fantasy general managers and fans of the team alike wondering if Marcus Mariota will remain the starting quarterback beyond this year. The team retained Mariota on the fifth-year option and signed Ryan Tannehill, signaling that they intend to use this year to evaluate that question. While Mariota improved his touchdown to interception ratio (11:8) from the previous year, the Titans will endeavor to give him better line protection. They have already made a large step in the right direction by signing Rodger Saffold to protect his blindside. Mariota is also committed to adding weight to his frame in the offseason so that he can hold up better to hits he may take. Having Delanie Walker back, Adam Humphries added, and Corey Davis budding into a true threat bodes well for him. Also, this will be only the second offseason during his tenure in which the offensive system does not undergo wholesale changes. It is not impossible to imagine Mariota climbing back into the top fifteen at the position if he is not taking the punishment that he endured a season ago. (April 19)

Titans | Taming Marcus Mariota is key (Mon Jun 24, 09:03 AM) - Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been encouraged to take fewer hits by general manager Jon Robinson. 'The thing I've stressed to him, and I know our coaches have stressed to him is, Let's live to play another play,' Robinson said. 'Don't take that hit. If you feel the pocket coming down on you and you take off running, and the 'backer is coming off of coverage and he's coming screaming at you, throw the ball away. It's OK to punt, we'll get another crack at it. That's the main thing, it's stressing to him - to try as best as possible, like all quarterbacks do, to avoid getting hit.'

Our View: Mariota has been held back by injuries, coaching changes, and his play. If he takes fewer hits that will help one of those factors. It's still hard to see him as a quarterback who helps his teammates overachieve in fantasy leagues. He's an afterthought in fantasy drafts after it looked like he had broken out in 2017.
