McCluster has become one of the most dangerous punt returners in the league, earning him a Pro Bowl nod in 2013. If the Titans can provide solid blocking, the team should have one of the better return games this season.

Week 12: at Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Bishop Sankey put up 11/38/1 rushing and 1/7/0 receiving as the Titans continue to transition to featuring Sankey in the rushing attack - Shonn Greene got just 3/6/0 rushing last week, while Dexter McCluster posted 1/5/0 rushing and 1/17/0 receiving in his change-of-pace/split-out-wide role. Though the Titans didn't try to run the ball much, when they did hand it off last week it went to Sankey more often than not. The Eagles' rush D is ranked 19th in the NFL in terms of rushing yards allowed per game (114.7), but they have only given away five rushing scores so far this year. Last week, Green Bay managed 25/110/1 rushing as a team; Carolina had 32/102/1 rushing vs. Philadelphia two weeks ago. This is a so-so rush D that has given up some rushing TDs of late. The Titans are on the road in this one to hostile Lincoln Financial Field - this looks like a tough matchup for the evolving Tennessee attack.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs PIT (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)

McCluster has somewhat disappeared from the offense in recent weeks. He had a reception down the field to start the second quarter of this game. McCluster ran a deep out route and adjusted brilliantly to an inaccurate pass from Mettenberger. McCluster should have had a touchdown soon after when he was wide open at the goal line, but Mettenberger rifled the ball at him so he couldn't catch it.

Our View: Watch his practice status during the week. McCluster is not much of a fantasy option, but he can make a few plays for the team as a change-of-pace back/receiver.
