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. (August 11)
