Mariota was held down early and late in the season by the tough Minnesota, Houston, Kansas City, and Denver defenses, but only one of those teams will be on the schedule this year. When in the soft underbelly of opponents last year, Mariota finished in the top five quarterback with scores in the high 20's or 30's four times in a six-week midseason stretch, and his wide receivers should be upgraded with the addition of #5 pick Corey Davis and touchdown maker Eric Decker.
Mariota suffered a fractured right fibula in Week 16 of the 2016 season. It was surgically repaired in the offseason. Mariota expects to be 100 percent for training camp, but Jim Wyatt of the official team site said it is to be determined whether Mariota will play in the preseason. He participated in OTAs, including some 11-on-11 work.

Summary

Building on an impressive rookie season where he played behind a limited offensive line and receiving corps, the Titans made improvements that helped Mariota become a more efficient passer. Mariota's yards per game dropped from 234 in 2015 to 228 in 2016, but his rate of passing touchdowns increased to 1.7 per game, and his interception totals dropped from 10 to 9 despite playing 3 additional games. Credit for these improvements also goes to the bolstered the offensive line and the ground game. The Titans got strong production from rookie tackle Jack Conklin and free agent running back DeMarco Murray. Rookie runner Derrick Henry also looked formidable in a part-time role. The result was power offense with a dangerous play-action component that also featured set looks for Mariota's running ability and helped him become highly productive in the red zone. The Titans have developed a framework that should allow Mariota to grow into a productive quarterback rather than expect him to carry the offense immediately. Mariota was the No.13 quarterback last year; expect a similar result this year. (May 25)

Titans | Marcus Mariota ready to roll (Fri Jul 21, 01:49 PM) - Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) has done 'everything' for the last two weeks and will arrive at training camp in a week planning to play at 215 pounds, roughly 10 pounds lighter than his usual weight.

Our View: We love the sound of this. Given he was on a tear last year before his injury, we have a lot of faith this will be a great season for him. Early drafts have him as the 13th quarterback off the board and we think that makes sense. Expect his ADP to rise as we see him in action in August.
