Tennessee Titans Player Notes
For The Last 365 Days
 
Dexter McCluster, WR12/17/2014 12:51:00 PM
Description: Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster (knee) is expected to be sidelined for the final two games of the season.
Insight: He has already been ruled out for Thursday's game, and willlikely miss the final one as well. McCluster was not a good option to begin with. He will return to Tennessee in 2015.
Jake Locker, QB12/15/2014 4:55:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (dislocated shoulder) was placed on injured reserve.
Insight: His season is over, and Locker will be a free agent during the offseason. He will likely sign a deal to compete for a backup job. If Zach Mettenberger is healthy, he will likely start. If not, Charlie Whitehurst will get the nod. Jordan Palmer was signed to take Locker's roster spot.
Delanie Walker, TE12/15/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker took advantage of the absence of the Titans top two receivers and caufght four balls for 93 yards.

Description: Titans receiver Nate Washington saw a team-high 10 targets, catching six for 102 yards.
Insight: Washington caught balls for two different quarterbacks, taking advantage of the absence of both Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter.
Jake Locker, QB12/14/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker has gone to the locker room with what appears to be a left shoulder injury.
Insight: His return is questionable. That puts Charlie White hurst in the game and that's a problem for all Titans receivers.
Kendall Wright, WR12/14/2014 3:11:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright has a cracked bone in his hand and is inactive again for Week 15.
Insight: Wright is considered day-to-day. He will join Justin Hunter on the sidelines. Nate Washington could be a viable fantasy option and well as tight end Delanie Walker.
Jake Locker, QB12/8/2014 3:35:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker is expected to take over control of the Tenessee offense for the final three games with Zach Mettenberger done for the season.
Insight: It will give Locker a trio of games in which to impress other NFL general managers for his impending free agency.
Zach Mettenberger, QB12/8/2014 3:34:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger is likely done for the season after suffering a separated AC joint.
Insight: Jake Locker will be the de facto starter for the final three games and a trip into the world of free agency after the season. The Titans will need to draft a quarterback very early next spring.
Delanie Walker, TE12/7/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker did not do much on Sunday.

Insight: He also had an interception, and was replaced by Jake Locker, who went 9-of-11 for 81 yards and an interception. It will interesting to see who starts Week 15.

Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright has a cracked bone in his hand and is inactive for Week 14.

Bishop Sankey, RB12/7/2014 11:46:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey should get the full workload Sunday against the Giants with Shonn Greene inactive.
Insight: We are still waiting for Sankey to show us enough to make him fantasy worthy. it might happen in Week 14.
Kendall Wright, WR12/4/2014 8:34:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright has a cracked bone in his hand according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.
Insight: Wright is considered day-to-day and could still play against the Giants in Week 14. He will likely be a game-tim decision, so owners should have a backup plan just in case.
Kendall Wright, WR12/4/2014 2:50:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright (cracked bone in his hand) said "he hopes to go next week" according to Terry McCormick, Titans beat reporter.
Insight: Wright is considered day-to-day, but no one expects him to be out there this weekend. Nate Washington, Derek Hagan and tight end Delanie Walker should pick up extra targets.
Justin Hunter, WR12/2/2014 4:30:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter (lacerated spleen) has been placed on injured reserve ending his season.
Insight: We were expecting big things from Hunter, but they never materialized. He'll finish his second season with 28 receptions for 498 yards and three scores, but posted double-digit fantasy points just twice in 12 games.
Justin Hunter, WR11/30/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter suffered a lacerated spleen in the game against Houston and will stay in the hospital overnight.

Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker was a big disappointment after a big game last week.
Insight: Walker had five catches for 155 yards last week, but he had just one catch for six yards this week.
Nate Washington, WR11/30/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Nate Washington had five catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on Sunday.
Insight: It should be noted Washington's touchdown came from Jake Locker, who replaced the injured Zach Mettenberger. However, Mettenberger will return to quarterback next week as long as he is healthy.
Kendall Wright, WR11/30/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright turned in another solid fantasy day.
Insight: Wright had seven catches, 132 yards and a touchdown. He is quietly turning in a decent fantasy season with 51 catches, 633 receiving yards and five touchdowns through 12 games.
Bishop Sankey, RB11/30/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey continues to struggle in his rookie season.
Insight: Sankey had a decent yards-per-carry average at 4.2, but he only had 10 carries. Therefore, he was limited to 42 yards. Sankey is no more than an RB3.
Zach Mettenberger, QB11/30/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger expects to play in Week 14 even though he suffered a Grade 1 AC joint sprain according to The Tennessean.
Insight: Before Mettenberger left, he was 13-of-19 with a touchdown and pick. As long as he is healthy, there is no way Ken Whisenhunt turns back to Jake Locker, who threw two more interceptions after Mettenberger left.
Zach Mettenberger, QB11/30/2014 2:58:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger left Sunday's game against the Texans in the third quarter.
Insight: The CBS telecast showned Mettenberger favoring his right arm with either a hand or shoulder injury. Check back for more details. Meanwhile, Jake Locker has checked in and promptly threw an interception.
Dexter McCluster, WR11/24/2014 4:41:00 PM
Description: Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster is battling a concussion.
Insight: He will now have to go through the league's protocol to get cleared. If McCluster does not play in Week 13, Bishop Sankey will see more work on passing-downs.
Justin Hunter, WR11/23/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter scored a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.
Insight: He had four receptions for 64 yards on 10 targets. Kendall Wright was unimpressive on the other side, going for one catch and 28 yards, while Nate Washington had four receptions for 63 yards. There is too much inconsistency among Titans' wideouts.
Bishop Sankey, RB11/23/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey was ineffective during Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
Insight: He had 10 carries for 37 yards and two catches for 14 yards. Sankey is no more than an RB3.
Delanie Walker, TE11/23/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker had a big game on Sunday.

Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger had strong fantasy-day on Sunday.
Insight: He threw for 349 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Mettenberger should continue to hold QB2 value.
Michael Griffin, S11/23/2014 3:11:00 PM
Description: Titans FS Michael left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury.
Insight: Update: Griffin has returned to the game , which is good news for Tennessee, as he has 10 solo tackles.
Michael Griffin, S11/23/2014 2:45:00 PM
Description: Titans FS Michael left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury.
Insight: He is officially questionable to return, but the he did not look good walking off the field.
Delanie Walker, TE11/23/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker (concussion) is active for Week 12.
Insight: We liked him better with Jake Locker under center, but Zach Mettenberger will use him too. The Eagles defense is No. 2 in stopping opposing fantasy tight ends.
Delanie Walker, TE11/20/2014 3:14:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday practice and barring a setback should be ready to go in Week 12.
Insight: We liked him better with Jake Locker under center, but Zach Mettenberger will use him too.
Delanie Walker, TE11/19/2014 3:36:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker (concussion) was limited Wednesday.
Insight: Its a step in the right direction, but Walker still needs to be cleared by an independent specialist. Monitor is progress as the week goes on.
Chase Coffman, TE11/18/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: With teammate Delanie Walker sidelined, Chase Coffman took over as the TE weapon against Pittsburgh Monday night.
Insight: Coffman caught three of four targets for 32 yards and a touchdown. The TD catch was impressive going above the defenders to haul in the score. He's not normally thought of as a receiver, but he did come up big Monday night.
Nate Washington, WR11/18/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Titans receiver Nate Washington caught just one ball, but it was an 80-yard bomb for a score.
Insight: Washington is the third receiver behind Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter and doesn't usually see enough work to be fantasy worthy.
Kendall Wright, WR11/18/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright led the team in targets (8) and receptions (4).
Insight: He's Mettenberger's favorite target, but is a low-end fantasy value. The 70-yard total Monday night was his best of the season.
Zach Mettenberger, QB11/18/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger threw for 263 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Insight: An 80-yard strike to Nate Washington certainly padded his total. It was a solid effort after throwing a pick-six to start the game.
Bishop Sankey, RB11/18/2014 9:26:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey ran well on the first drive, but doesn't see enough work to be fantasy worthy.
Insight: The Titans run Dexter McCluster and Shonn Greene in and out of the lineup too often. Sankey ended up with aa carries and one reception for a combined 45 yards and a touchdown. Until he sees more work, he has limited upside.
Delanie Walker, TE11/17/2014 7:18:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker (concussion) is officially out for Monday's game against the Steelers.
Insight: Hopefully owners went with another option at tight end.
Dexter McCluster, WR11/17/2014 11:45:00 AM
Description: Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster has been limited in practice due to a knee bruise and is questionable for the Monday night game against Pittsburgh.
Insight: McCluster is the team's passing-down back, but has shown he's not fantasy worthy. He's yet to score a touchdown this season and his best yardage total is 58 combined yards.
Delanie Walker, TE11/17/2014 11:42:00 AM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker (concussion) practiced on Saturday and is being listed as questionable for Monday night versus Pittsburgh.
Insight: Walker will still need to be medically cleared before returning to action. His early season production has faded in the last few games likely due to the changes at quarterback.
Delanie Walker, TE11/15/2014 1:45:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker (concussion) practiced on Saturday and is being listed as questionable.
Insight: It was a limited session, but is good news nonetheless. Walker will need to be medically cleared before returning to action. He plays Monday night.
Shonn Greene, RB11/15/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene returned to the lineup and rushed for a team high 50 yards on 16 carries.
Insight: Rookie Bishop Sankey was no where to be found, rushing just three times. It wasn't a good rushing total, but he did receive a vast majority of the workload.
Delanie Walker, TE11/13/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker did not practice again on Thursday due to his concussion.
Insight: A hit from Ravens safety Terrence Brooks concussed Walker in Week 10. Fantasy owners should expect him to miss this weekend's action.
Dexter McCluster, WR11/13/2014 3:27:00 PM
Description: Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster missed Thursday's practice due to a knee bruise.
Insight: McCluster is the team's passing-down back, but should not be considered anything more than an RB4.
Delanie Walker, TE11/12/2014 2:53:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker did not practice on Wednesday due to his concussion according to The Tennessean.
Insight: A hit from Ravens safety Terrence Brooks concussed Walker in Week 10. He had to be carted off the field. Walker is doubtful for Week 11.
Dexter McCluster, WR11/10/2014 4:43:00 PM
Description: Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster is being considered day-to-day with a knee bruise.
Insight: He did not return to Sunday's game after departing with the injury. McCluster is the team's passing-down back, but should not be considered anything more than an RB4.
Delanie Walker, TE11/9/2014 6:45:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker left Sunday's game with a concussion, but did not produce much before that.
Insight: He had three catches for 37 yards before departing. Walker is a borderline TE1, once he returns to the field.
Kendall Wright, WR11/9/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright recorded a team-high 53 receiving yards.
Insight: He did so on four catches. Wright is no more than a WR4, with Zach Mettenberger under center.
Bishop Sankey, RB11/9/2014 6:40:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey failed to capitalize on his opportunity, during Sunday's loss to Baltimore.
Insight: He had 17 carries for only 58 yards and three catches for 19 yards, and cannot seem to get rolling. Sankey is no more than an RB3.
Zach Mettenberger, QB11/9/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger threw for 179 yards om Sunday.
Insight: He also threw one touchdown and one interception, and is a borderline QB2 on a team without many playmakers.
Dexter McCluster, WR11/9/2014 2:51:00 PM
Description: Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster left Sunday's game with a knee injury.
Insight: He is questionable to return, but did not have touches during his game-action in Week 10.
Delanie Walker, TE11/9/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker left Sunday's game in the second quarter, with an apparent head injury.
Insight: Walker was hit hard over the middle, and laid motionless for a few minutes. He was eventually carted to locker room, leaving it unlikely that he will return.
Shonn Greene, RB11/7/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene is inactive for Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: Rookie Bishop Sankey should get the full workload. The rookie hasn't done much exciting this season, but might get a chance to show something today.
Shonn Greene, RBCold11/6/2014 9:09:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene will continue to be the backup to rookie Bishop Sankey, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Insight: Greene saw just one carry against Houston in Week 8 and appears to have little fantasy value going forward unless Sankey suffers an injury.
Delanie Walker, TE10/26/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker hauled in his fourth touchdown of 2014.
Insight: He had not caught a touchdown since Week 4, so it was nice for owners to see him get back into the end zone. Walker will continue to be a borderlin TE1.
Justin Hunter, WR10/26/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter scored a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Insight: It was his second touchdown of the season, but owners should expect inconsistent production for the rest of 2014.
Kendall Wright, WR10/26/2014 6:11:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright manged three catches for 53 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He had five targets, and with Zach Mettenberger under center, Wright is nore than a WR3.
Nate Washington, WR10/26/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Nate Washington led the team in receiving during Week 8's loss to the Texans.
Insight: He totaled four catches for 68 yards, on only four targets. Washington does not hold much fantasy appeal as the season moves on.
Bishop Sankey, RB10/26/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey had only 35 rushing yards on Sunday.
Insight: He did so on nine carries, and even though Shonn Greene had only one carry for one yard, Sankey has not been able to produce for owners in 2014. Consider him an RB3, at best.
Zach Mettenberger, QB10/26/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger had a decent line in his first-career NFL start.
Insight: He was 27-of-41 for 299 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw an interception and lost a fumble. Mettenberger is a low-end QB2 for the duration of the season.
Jake Locker, QB10/26/2014 12:07:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (thumb) is active, but serving as the backup, Sunday against Houston.
Insight: The Zach Mettenberger Era has officially started in Tennessee, making Locker an irrelevant fantasy option, barring injury.
Shonn Greene, RB10/26/2014 12:03:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Texans.
Insight: Bishop Sankey is getting the start, but Greene figures to mix in. However, he is a touchdown-dependent play, and is no more than an RB4 at best.
Bishop Sankey, RB10/26/2014 12:02:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey will start Sunday's game even with Shonn Greene active.
Insight: Even with getting the starting nod, Sankey is no more than an RB3/flex play. He will need to show us more, for his his status to be elevated.
Shonn Greene, RB10/25/2014 12:33:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene was arrested on Friday night in Franklin, Tennessee according to the Nashville Tennessean.
Insight: Greene was parked in a handicap spot in Franklin. While a parking enforcement officer was writing a ticket for Greene, the running back decided it would be a great idea to flee the scene. Greene eventually turned himself in after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest. He was charged with handicap parking violation, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk. He is out on bail, but his status for Sunday is unknown. Fantasy owners should drop him just for his stupidity.
Kendall Wright, WR10/23/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins in Week 7, but will be hard-pressed to match that in Week 8 against Houston.
Insight: Wright will be receiving passes from untested sixth-round rookie QB Zach Mettenberger, who will likely be running for his life from J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.
Jake Locker, QB10/23/2014 3:08:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger will start in Week 8 against Houston with Jake Locker (thumb) as the backup.
Insight: This can't be good for anyone on the Tennessee offense and fantasy owners should avoid Titans receivers unless forced at gunpoint.
Zach Mettenberger, QB10/23/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: The Titans will start sixth-round rookie Zach Mettenberger at quarterback coach Ken Whisenhunt said Thursday.
Insight: Jake Locker is in a contract year and is too injury prone to commit to long-term. Charlie Whitehurst is not the answer at quarterback either. Everyone should jump on the Houston Texans defernse, particularly if Jadeveon Clowney returns.
Zach Mettenberger, QB10/22/2014 10:57:00 PM
Description: The Nashville Tennessean reports the Titans will start sixth-round rookie Zach Mettenberger at quarterback against the Texans in Week 8.
Insight: Coach Ken Whisenhunt has officially given up on the season. Jake Locker is in a contract year, and he is too injury prone to commit to long-term. Charlie Whitehurst is not the answer at quarterback either. So Whisenhunt is getting a look at the rookie from LSU.
Nate Washington, WR10/22/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams have been calling the Titans about Nate Washington.
Insight: This likely just means the Titans would like to trade their wide receiver. Justin Hunter is the team's new No. 2 WR, and Washington is taking up cap and roster space. It is unlikely that Tennessee gets anyone to bite on his 4.8 million base salary since he can't even earn a starting role on the Titans.
Shonn Greene, RB10/22/2014 3:12:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited during Wednesday's practice.
Insight: It is a step in the right direction for Greene, as he has failed to practice over the past two weeks. Even if he is able to suit up, Bishop Sankey will most likely lead the team in carries.
Jake Locker, QB10/22/2014 3:00:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (thumb) got in a limited practice during Wednesday's session.
Insight: Coach Ken Whisenhunt expects Locker to return for Week 8, but that will depend on the amount of reps he is able to handle the rest of the week. We should have more clarity on his status after Thursday's practice.
Antonio Andrews, RB10/21/2014 12:58:00 PM
Description: The Titans have signed running back Antonio Andrews from their practice squad.
Insight: He'll be behind both Bishop Sankey and Shonn Greene so has little fantasy value. The move could have been made to protect him from getting signed by another team with multiple running back injuries.
Delanie Walker, TE10/19/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker had a disappointing game against the Redskins.
Insight: Walker had two catches for 17 yards. Unfortunately, the magic Walker had at the beginning of the season seems to have faded. Walker also seems more productive when Jake Locker is under center.
Kendall Wright, WR10/19/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins in Week 7.
Insight: Wright has frustrated fantasy owners this season, but if owners have remained patient with him, he put up a solid fantasy day in Week 7. With this performance, Wright, at the very least, has kept his bench spot on your roster.
Charlie Whitehurst, QB10/19/2014 5:52:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was 17-for-26 with 160 yards, two touchdowns and a pick against the Redskins on Sunday.
Insight: Whitehurst seems to have a connection with Kendall Wright, which will make the receiver's fantasy owners pleased. It still wasn't enough to win though.
Bishop Sankey, RB10/19/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey had 16 carries for 56 yards (3.5 ypc) and nothing in the passing game.
Insight: Sankey has moved into the starting role at running back, but he has done little to prove he deserves to stay there. We would look elsewhere for fantasy running back production.
Shonn Greene, RB10/18/2014 2:10:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Week 7.
Insight: Bishop Sankey will be the lead back, with Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington mixing in as well.
Charlie Whitehurst, QB10/17/2014 2:22:00 PM
Description: Tennessee quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is still taking the majority of the reps with the first team and it appears he'll get one more start before Jake Locker returns to the lineup.
Insight: Whitehurst doesn't hold much value for fantasy owners having yet to crack the 240 passing yard mark in any game this season.
Jake Locker, QB10/17/2014 2:20:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (thumb) was limited in practice again on Friday and it appears unlikely that he'll be ready for Sunday.
Insight: His status is still completely up in the air for Week 7, but Charlie Whitehurst did take the bulk of practice reps on today, leading us to believe Locker will be out for one more week.
Bishop Sankey, RB10/17/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey managed 61 yards on Sunday and will get another chance to shine with Shonn Greene not expected to play in Week 7.
Insight: It wasn't a great afternoon, but Sankey was given 18 carries and with volume comes a chance to produce decent numbers against Washington.
Shonn Greene, RB10/17/2014 10:04:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 7 and hopes to start practicing next week, according to John Glennon of The Tennessean.
Insight: He has 44 carries for 190 yards and one touchdown this season. This was expected, and it gives rookie tailback Bishop Sankey another huge opportunity.
Jake Locker, QB10/16/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (thumb) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day.
Insight: His status is completely up in the air for Week 7, but Charlie Whitehurst did take the majority of practice reps on Thursday, leading us to believe Locker will be out for one more week.
Delanie Walker, TE10/13/2014 6:40:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker had a disappointing game against the Jaguars.
Insight: Walker still caught three passes for 57 yards, but against arguably the worst defense in the league, Walker had one of his worst statistical days so far in 2014. He seems to be more productive with Jake Locker while Charlie Whitehurst favors Justin Hunter.
Justin Hunter, WR10/13/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter led the team with 77 receiving yards in Week 6 against the Jaguars.
Insight: Hunter seems to have some chemistry with backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst. The pair hit a big touchdown against the Browns in Week 5 and Hunter led the Titans in Week 6. Hunter is a viable WR3 in deep leagues with Whitehurst at quarterback.
Charlie Whitehurst, QB10/13/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Tennessee quarterback Charlie Whitehurst went 17-for-28 with 233 yards against the Jaguars in Week 6.
Insight: Whitehurst did not throw any touchdown passes, however, so his fantasy total was kept in check. He will continue to start as long as Jake Locker is out.
Bishop Sankey, RB10/12/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey managed 61 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Not a great afternoon, but Sankey was given 18 carries. If Shonn Greene is able to return, Sankey will be no more than a RB4.
Shonn Greene, RB10/12/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) is out Sunday against Jacksonville.
Insight: This was expected, and it gives rookie tailback Bishop Sankey a huge opportunity to become Tennessee's lead dog. Expect Dexter McCluster to be mixed in as well.
Jake Locker, QB10/12/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker is officially out Sunday against Jacksonville.
Insight: Charlie Whitehurst gets another start, but if he struggles do not be surprised if rookie Zach Mettenberger gets into the game.
Bishop Sankey, RB10/11/2014 1:21:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie running back Bishop Sankey should lead the team in carries with Shonn Green out with a hamstring injury.
Insight: Where have we heard this before? Even with Greene in the lineup, coach Ken Whisenhunt has said Sankey will be more involved but that hasn't happened yet. Tennessee might be forced to go to Sankey, though, with no Greene, and the Jaguars are a favorable matchup.
Shonn Greene, RB10/9/2014 3:59:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene was unable to practice Thursday and his availability could come down to Friday's practice.
Insight: If Greene is a no-go, that adds to Bishop Sankey's fantasy value in a favorable matchup against a weak Jacksonville defense.
Jake Locker, QB10/9/2014 3:53:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker is being called day-to-day, but missed another practice Thursday, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: Tennesse's offense is not as good under Charlie Whitehurst as Jake Locker and all facits must be downgraded if the starter isn't in there.
Jake Locker, QB10/7/2014 12:48:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker is being called day-to-day, by the team's site due to a bruised thumb.
Insight: Tennesse's offense scored zero second half points in a disappointing loss to Cleveland in which they were up 28-3 in the second quarter.
Kendall Wright, WR10/5/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright finally displayed what fantasy owners were hoping from him all year as he caught two touchdowns in Week 5 against the Browns.
Insight: Wright finished with six catches for 47 yards in his biggest fantasy day of 2014. The Titans also used Wright in the rushing game, giving him two carries, one of which he took for 38 yards. But with the uncertainty at quarterback, it will still be tough to start Wright with confidence.
Jake Locker, QB10/5/2014 2:16:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker left Sunday's game against the Browns holding his throwing arm.
Insight: Browns cornerback Joe Haden hit Locker in the helmet on third down at about the 30-yard line. He, however, did not return to the game after the pass interference call. The injury is apparently to Locker's right hand.
Delanie Walker, TE10/5/2014 12:23:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker is active for Week 5 against the Browns.
Insight: Walker was upgraded to probable on Friday, so this is no surprise. He leads the Titans in receiving through four games.
Jake Locker, QB10/1/2014 3:25:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker returned to practice on Wednesday and did not have any issues with his wrist while throwing according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: Wyatt also reported that Locker had some zip on his throws. Locker looks poised to return to the starting lineup in Week 5 against the Browns, but he is still a low-end QB2.
Bishop Sankey, RB10/1/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey will likely get more carries in Week 5 against the Browns according to The Tennessean.
Insight: Whisenhunt also added that Sankey will see action earlier in the game. Sankey has actually led the Titans running backs in snaps the past two weeks, but most of those snaps have come in the second half of games with the Titans well behind on the scoreboard. Sankey has 127 yards and one touchdown on 19 touches the last two weeks.
Delanie Walker, TE9/28/2014 5:27:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker leads team in receiving, yet again.
Insight: He had five catches for 85 yards and a score. Walker is clearly the Titans best receiving threat through the first four weeks of the season.
Jake Locker, QB9/28/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (wrist) is officially inactive Sunday versus Indianapolis.
Insight: Charlie Whitehurst gets the start, but hopefully owners have better options on their rosters.
Jake Locker, QB9/28/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (wrist) will not play on Sunday, according to Adam Schefter,
Insight: He looked unlikely to play all week, after suffering the wrist injury late in Week 3. "Checkdown" Charlie Whitehurst gets the start against Indianapolis. Expect Tennessee to use a lot of Shonn Greene and Bishop Sankey.
Jake Locker, QB9/26/2014 4:14:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (wrist) is officially listed as questionable, but is not expected to play Sunday.
Insight: Figure Charlie "Checkdown" Whitehurst to get the start which means shorts passes and could be good for tight end Delanie Walker and the running backs.
Jake Locker, QB9/25/2014 3:49:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker (wrist) did not practice on Thursday according to The Tennessean.
Insight: It was also reported that Locker did do a "bit more" at practice, but head coach Ken Whisenhunt did say he is concerned about Locker suffering a setback if he plays against the Colts. Whisenhunt said he will likely determine Locker's status on Sunday, but with everything Whisenhunt has said this week, we do not expect Locker to play. Whisenhunt likely wants to give another quarterback a shot after Locker's poor first three weeks.
Delanie Walker, TE9/25/2014 3:41:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker returned to practice Thursday in a limited fashion according to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com.
Insight: This puts Walker on pace to play on Sunday against the Colts. Even with the question mark at quarterback, Walker is a TE1. He leads the Titans in receiving with 233 yards on 17 catches.
Jake Locker, QB9/23/2014 9:11:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker has no structural damage to his wrist, but is still officially questionable for Week 4 according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: Doctors have diagnosed Locker with a wrist strain. Based on how he has played the last two weeks against the Cowboys and Bengals, hopefully Locker is not a quarterback owners are relying on starting in Week 4.
Bishop Sankey, RB9/22/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey's carries won't increase until he improves his footwork.
Insight: Sankey rushed for 61 yards on ten carries and was really the only quality fantasy player from Tennessee on Sunday. Whisenhunt, however, still wants him to improve his footwork before he sees the field for longer periods of time. The 54th overall pick from May's draft has 89 yards on 18 carries in three games as he is rotating with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster in the backfield.
Jake Locker, QB9/22/2014 5:19:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker suffered an injury to his throwing wrist in Week 3, and the Titans are unsure if he will play in Week 4 according to ESPN.
Insight: Perhaps that's why Locker was so bad against the Bengals on Sunday. Locker's wrist was apparently bent awkwardly in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. There is already speculation that head coach Ken Whisenhunt will use this injury as an excuse to start another quarterback next week. Charlie Whitehurst and rookie Zach Mettenberger are Locker's backups.
Delanie Walker, TE9/21/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker leads Titans in receiving once again.
Insight: He did not have as big of a game as he did a week ago, but Walker still managed four catches for 54 yards, on seven targets. He outshined his receiving counterparts, Kendall Wright (5 catches for 44 yards) and Justin Hunter (3 catches for 37 yards). Walker is a borderline TE1 as we head into Week 4.
Bishop Sankey, RB9/21/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Bishop Sankey outshines Shonn Greene Sunday.
Insight: Both backs received 10 carries, but Sankey was far more productive with his 61 yards, compared to Greene's 33. Greene did manage a garbage time, one-yard touchdown. However, we could be seeing the start of the Bishop Sankey show right before our very eyes.
Jake Locker, QB9/21/2014 6:11:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker has afternoon to forget against Cincinnati.
Insight: He was 17-of-34 for only 185 yards and two interceptions. Tennessee did not lose just because of Locker's poor play, however he did not help the team's cause. After a stellar Week 1 performance, Locker has been way too inconsistent. He is a QB2 moving forward.
Jason McCourty, CB9/21/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Titans DB Jason McCourty (groin) is active today against the Bengals.
Insight: He had the questionable tag all week, but is ready to roll. McCourty should draw both A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu throughout the day.
Rob Bironas, K9/21/2014 8:58:00 AM
Description: Former Titans place-kicker Rob Bironas was killed Saturday night in a car crash.
Insight: Bironas kicked for nine seasons with Tennessee and had an 85.7 percent success rate on field goal attempts. He was an All-Pro in 2007.
Justin Hunter, WR9/16/2014 3:09:00 PM
Description: Like most of the Titans' players, Hunter was a nowhere to be found against the Cowboys during Week 2.
Insight: Hunter has a ton of physical ability, but the fact he is on a team like Tennessee, inconsistent play is be expected. He had two catches for 26 yards on Sunday, and will look to rebound in Week 3 when the Titans travel to Cincy.
Shonn Greene, RB9/16/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene was unable to build on a strong start to the season, against Dallas.
Insight: After registering 71 rushing yards in Week 1, Greene only managed five carries for 40 yards in Week 2. He is still the lead back in Tennessee, however owners should continue to expect inconsistent play. Greene is no more than a flex/RB3 option moving forward.
Jake Locker, QB9/16/2014 2:55:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker could not build off his performance from Week 1.
Insight: Locker has been inconsistent throughout his career, and that trend continued against the Cowboys. He was 18/34 for 234 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. It does not get any easier as Tennessee travels to Cincinnati for Week 3. Consider Locker a QB2 on Sunday.
Dexter McCluster, WR9/15/2014 2:42:00 PM
Description: Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster is questionable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati de to a foot injury.
Insight: According to a report in The Tennessean, McCluster was seen leaving the locker room in a walking boot. McCluster doesn't have much fantasy value at this time with Shonn Greene and Bishop Sankey in front of him on the depth charts.
Delanie Walker, TEHot9/14/2014 5:00:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker owners hit the jackpot with a 10-catch, 142-yard, one score game.
Insight: Walker also scored in Week 1 and is quickly becoming a huge tight end threat. The Cowboys have now yielded 14 receptions for 186 yards and three scores to opposing starting tight ends. Remember that when the Rams' Jared Cook plays Dallas next weekend.
Bishop Sankey, RBCold9/14/2014 4:56:00 PM
Description: Titans rookie running back Bishop Sankey was nowhere to be found in Week 2 against Dallas.
Insight: Sankey rushed the ball just two times for three yards. The Titans only tried running the ball 11 times including twice by quarterback Jake Locker. Shonn Green appears to be the only back option in Tennessee.
Bishop Sankey, RB9/13/2014 2:58:00 PM
Description: ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects rookie running back Bishop Sankey to "gradually grow" into a more important role on offense.
Insight: Sankey is further down the depth chart than we initially thought. Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster had 15 and nine carries, respectively. Sankey had six carries for 25 yards. Even Leon Washington was invovled and only had two fewer touches than Sankey did. The rookie is worth having on your bench because he will continue to get more reps but do not put him in your fantasy lineup this week.
Justin Hunter, WR9/12/2014 2:09:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter was a full participant in Friday's practice with a knee injury, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: It wasn't thought to be serious and this should solidify his status as active for Week 2. Hunter is the Titans' receiver who scares defenses the most. he caught three balls for 63 yards in the opener.
Jake Locker, QB9/11/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker told the Nashville Tennessean that he feels more comfortable against the blitz than he has in the past.
Insight: Locker has been inaccurate against defensive pressure in the past, but that was not the case versus the Chiefs on Sunday. Kansas City did sack Locker four times, but he completed 22-of-33 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns. If you need a quarterback this week, Locker has a great matchup against the Cowboys.
Justin Hunter, WR9/10/2014 3:58:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter was limited in Wednesday's practice with a knee injury, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: It's not thought to be serious, but we will be watching this one as the week goes along.
Zach Brown, LB9/7/2014 1:25:00 PM
Description: Titans linebacker Zach Burns has left the game due to a shoulder injury.
Insight: He's questionable to return. Brown starts on the inside which won't help keeping Jamaal Charles under control.
Ryan Succop, K9/1/2014 2:52:00 PM
Description: Former Chiefs incumbent, Ryan Succop, didn't stay unemployed for long, signing with the Tennessee Titans.
Insight: Succop replaced Travis Coons who "owned" the job for just one day. Succop was a mediocre 22-for-28 last season, but he has a career 81 percent success rate.
Shonn Greene, RB8/23/2014 9:46:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene ran the ball six times for 15 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.
Insight: Given the size of the Tennessee offensive line and a below average Atlanta front seven, its disappointing Greene did not have a much better showing. He remains the starter for now, but we doubt he will remain in front of rookie Bishop Sankey.
Jake Locker, QB8/23/2014 9:07:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker was 12-of-17 for 188 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.
Insight: Locker also did not throw any interceptions. The touchdown pass was a 63-yard bomb to receiver Nate Washington. Through three preseason games, Locker is 21-of-30 with two touchdowns and no picks. If he remains healthy, Locker is a quality QB2.
Justin Hunter, WR8/21/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: The Tennessean called Titans receiver Justin Hunter "all but unstoppable" anywhere near the goal line. Hunter caught four balls for 111 yards and two touchdowns in last week's preseason game.
Insight: Hunter has a knack for catching the ball in the corner of the end zone on the fade pattern according to The Tennessean. Adding to his ball skills, Hunter is 6'4" and jumped a remarkable 39.5 inch vertical leap in the NFL Combine. He could prove to be one of Jake Locker's favorite red zone targets this season and thus a sleeper on draft day.
Shonn Greene, RB8/18/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (knee) practiced Monday, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. He hyperextended his right knee, which he had arthroscopic surgery on twice in the last 12 months, in Friday's preseason game.
Insight: Greene is currently atop Tennessee's depth chart, but with Dexter McCluster playing on third downs and rookie Bishop Sankey in the fold, this could be a committee early in the season.
Bishop Sankey, RB8/18/2014 11:38:00 AM
Description: Titans rookie running back Bishop Sankey did some good things and some bad things this week ... as rookies are prone to do.
Insight: Sankey rushed six times for 31 yards (5.1 ypc), but also fumbled on his final carry while driving for extra yards. With Shonn Greene struggling to to knee issues, Sankey could be in line for big playing time, if he can straighten out the issues - primarily blocking for his QB and fumbling.
Justin Hunter, WR8/16/2014 2:39:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter had four catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's preseason game.
Insight: Hunter made a lot of mental mistakes and appeared passive at times on the field during his rookie year, but his physical gifts are undeniable. He's 6-foot-4, 203 pounds and ran a 4.44 40-yard dash at the combine. He's a high-upside target in the 12th round of fantasy drafts.
Justin Hunter, WR8/12/2014 8:49:00 PM
Description: According to the Tennessean, not a practice goes by without Justin Hunter making some highlight-reel catches.
Insight: Hunter hasn't been without fault during camp. Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt reportedly called out Hunter in a team meeting for a mistake during Saturday's preseason opener on Monday and WRs coach Shawn Jefferson made him wear a "JAG" (Just Another Guy) nameplate at practice. Hunter made a lot of mental mistakes and appeared passive at times on the field during his rookie year, but his physical gifts are undeniable. He's 6-foot-4, 203 pounds and ran a 4.44 40-yard dash at the combine. He's a nice flyer in the 12th round of fantasy drafts.
Shonn Greene, RB8/10/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene started the preseason opener Saturday against the Packers and had four carries for 20 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Dexter McCluster played on third downs and ran with the second-team ahead of rookie Bishop Sankey. Sankey is going to have to earn a larger role in the offense and could be in a committee to start the season.
Colin McCarthy, LB8/9/2014 11:30:00 PM
Description: Tennessee linebacker Colin McCarthy left Saturday night's game with a shoulder injury.
Insight: Coach Ken Whisenhunt has already said he would "miss significant time" which makes him questionable to start the season at his inside lineback position.
Shonn Greene, RB8/6/2014 3:31:00 PM
Description: According to Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Shonn Greene is the No. 1 running back right now because he's the most experienced.
Insight: Rookie Bishop Sankey is listed third on the depth chart after Dexter McCluster. The Titans will likely open with a backfield committee, but Sankey should move ahead of Greene eventually.
Bishop Sankey, RB7/20/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: According to the Tennessean, the Titans plan on using a running back by committee this season.
Insight: We're guessing they'll move away from that quickly once they see the difference between Bishop Sankey and Shonn Greene. Dexter McCluster will be involved, but more as a pass-catcher in the role Danny Woodhead occupied last season for the Chargers under new Tennessee coach Ken Whisenhunt. Woodhead had 182 touches, but there were still 311 touches left for Ryan Mathews. Sankey will likely lead the backfield in touches, but with Greene looming as a touchdown vulture a 39.3 ADP is a little high for the rookie.
Jackie Battle, RBCold7/15/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Tennessee running back Jackie Battle should have zero fantasy value this season as he's been moved to fullback, according to Jim Eyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: Battle was a viable handcuff candidate in previous stops with Kansas City and San Diego, but isn't likely to touch the football much in 2014. The Titans have three running backs in Bishop Sankey, Shonn Greene and multi-position Dexter McCluster for that role.
Tanard Jackson, S7/10/2014 10:45:00 AM
Description: Washington safetyTanard Jackson has been suspended indefinitely for violating the league's Substance Abuse Policy.
Insight: At this point, with multiple suspensions on his resume, he may never play in the NFL again.
Delanie Walker, TE7/1/2014 9:23:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker said he's "looking to catch 80 balls this year." SOURCE: titansonline.com
Insight: In his first season with the Titans, Walker caught 60 passes for 571 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games, so him catching 80 catches isn't as much of a stretch as it seems. New Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt worked with Antonio Gates in San Diego last year and compared Walker to Gates in January. Walker is going undrafted in 12-team mocks on fantasyfootballcalculator.com, but he could be a low-end TE1.
Shonn Greene, RB5/11/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Tennessee halfback Shonn Greene is coming off right knee surgery and will miss all of OTAs. SOURCE: Jim Wyatt, Nashville Tennessean
Insight: That gives rookie Bishop Sankey a head start over Greene as the two try to learn Ken Whisenhunt's new offense. With Chris Johnson now in New York, the Titans' backfield is up for grabs. For what it's worth, Greene rushed 77 times for 295 yards and four touchdowns during the 2013 campaign.
Bishop Sankey, RB5/9/2014 8:49:00 PM
Description: The Titans made Bishop Sankey the first running back off the board in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Insight: Sankey went 54th overall, the latest the draft's first running back has ever been taken. Tennessee was in the market for a running back after releasing Chris Johnson. The 5-9, 209-pound Sankey has a good chance to start from Day 1 ahead of Shonn Greene.
Jake Locker, QB5/2/2014 8:30:00 PM
Description: The Titans won't pick up Jake Locker's option for 2015. SOURCE: Nashville Tennessean
Insight: That means he'll be a free agent after next season. Locker doesn't have Ryan Fitzpatrick breathing down his neck anymore but the team could still draft a quarterback to compete with him in training camp.
Chris Johnson, RB4/15/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Former Titans running back Chris Johnson met with the Jets on Tuesday. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: The team is mulling the idea of a split backfield with Johnson and Chris Ivory as the two anchors. Johnson has been in decline for several years now and doesn't figure to be a top fantasy choice in 2014.
Jake Locker, QB4/7/2014 3:00:00 PM
Description: Tennessee QB Jake Locker (Lisfranc surgery) says he is ahead of schedule and expects to be ready for May OTAs, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: Locker, Charlie Whitehurst and Tyler Wilson are the current QBs on the roster, but don't be surprised if the new regime brings in a quarterback in the draft. Locker has yet to show he's a fantasy-worthy QB.
Chris Johnson, RB4/4/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: It's official. The Titans have released running back Chris Johnson after six seasons. SOURCE: Jim Wyatt, The Tennessean
Insight: The Titans couldn't find a trade partner, but the running back will certainly find another NFL job. The speedster has proven to be durable, having missed just one game in six seasons. He's never rushed for less than 1,047 yards and has recorded 58 touchdowns (50 rushing). Where he ends up will determine his future fantasy value.
Chris Johnson, RB4/4/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Chris Johnson has a meeting with the GM Ruston Webster on Friday and could be released as soon as today.
Insight: The speedster has proven to be durable, having missed just one game in six seasons. He's never rushed for less than 1,047 yards and has recorded 58 touchdowns (50 rushing). The Titans couldn't find a trade partner, but the running back will certainly find another NFL job. Where he ends up will determine his future fantasy value.
Chris Johnson, RB3/29/2014 11:33:00 AM
Description: The Titans are expected to hand Chris Johnson his walking papers sometime in the next week. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
Insight: They couldn't drum up much trade interest for the veteran and now it appears they'll just let him walk. Johnson has rushed for 1,000 yards in all six seasons in the NFL while only missing one game over that stretch. He's owed $8 million in 2014.
Shaun Phillips, LB3/27/2014 9:41:00 PM
Description: The Titans have brought in pass rusher Shaun Phillips on a two-year contract.
Insight: After nine seasons with the Chargers, Phillips signed a one-year deal with the Broncos and had 10 sacks last year. The Titans ranked 21st in the NFL with 36 sacks last season.
Rob Bironas, K3/19/2014 8:21:00 PM
Description: The Titans released veteran kicker Rob Bironas on Tuesday. SOURCE: Jim Wyatt, The Tennessean
Insight: It's a cost-cutting move and will save Tennessee $3.125 million in cap space. Maybe when the Titans get Chris Johnson off their books they can bring Bironas back on a less expensive deal.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB3/14/2014 8:25:00 PM
Description: The Titans have released Ryan Fitzpatrick after one season.
Insight: The Titans needed Fitzpatrick to play 11 games last season behind brittle starter Jake Locker, and he completed 62 percent of his passes for 2,454 yards, 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Tennessee will go with Charlie Whitehurst, who is familiar with new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt's offensive system after playing in it as a backup for the Chargers last season.
Dexter McCluster, WR3/13/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said he thinks of Dexter McCluster as more of a running back than a wide receiver, according to the Tennessean.
Insight: McCluster signed with the Titans this week after spending the last four years in Kansas City. McCluster reeled in 46+ catches in each of the last three seasons but had just 20 carries combined the last two after taking 114 rushes for 516 yards (4.5 ypc) in 2011. Whisenhunt was OC of the Chargers last season and may see McCluster as his new Danny Woodhead (106 carries, 76 receptions, 1,034 yards from scrimmage, eight total TDs in 2013). If that's the case, he could have strong fantasy value.
Dexter McCluster, WR3/11/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Former Chiefs wideout Dexter McCluster has agreed to a three-year deal with Tennessee, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: A Pro Bowler last season, McCluster is probably one of the more versatile talents in the league. He should see work at wideout, halfback and on special teams next season. McCluster's deal could be worth up to $12 million though only $4.5 million of it is guaranteed.
Leon Washington, RB3/11/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: RB/KR Leon Washington re-signed with the Tennessee Titans.
Insight: Washington no longer has any fantasy value as he's only a special-team guy these days. He has one rush for one yard last season and zero receptions.
Chris Johnson, RB3/10/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Teams don't seem to be interested in trading for Tennessee running back Chris Johnson, which means he'll probably be released sometime in the very near future.
Insight: ESPN's Adam Schefter believes it could happen any day now. When Johnson does get released, he'll immediately become the most sought after halfback in this year's free agent class.
Chris Johnson, RB3/9/2014 9:38:00 PM
Description: The Titans are putting running back Chris Johnson on the trading block. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: Johnson has recorded at least 1,000 yards rushing in each of his six seasons in the league. Unfortunately for Tennessee, he's still owed $23 million over the next three seasons. If the Titans can't find a trade partner, there's a good chance Johnson will be released before June 1st.
Bernard Pollard, SS3/4/2014 8:33:00 PM
Description: The Titans were able to re-sign safety Bernard Pollard to a two-year deal. SOURCE: Bernard Pollard on Twitter
Insight: Pollard is coming off an excellent season that produced 99 tackles and three interceptions. He's known for being one of the hardest hitters in the league.
Chris Johnson, RB1/27/2014 7:44:00 PM
Description: Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that Titans RB Chris Johnson played the final 14 weeks of the 2013 season with a torn meniscus.
Insight: Johnson will have surgery on Tuesday. CJ2K managed 1,077 yards rushing, 345 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns in 16 games this season. He's only missed one game in six seasons in the league. Tennessee is expected to release him instead of paying him the $8 million he's owed for next season.
Jake Locker, QB1/15/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Jake Locker's future in Tennessee looks more uncertain than ever now that Ken Whisenhunt is the head coach. SOURCE: Jim Wyatt, The Tennessean
Insight: In his introductory press conference, Whisenhunt said he hasn't seen much of Locker at the pro level. He also said the team hasn't ruled out drafting a quarterback with the No. 11 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Locker has a team option for the 2015 season but it's unknown if the Titans are interested in keeping him beyond that. Stay tuned.
Justin Hunter, WR12/29/2013 2:35:00 PM
Description: Titans talented rookie receiver Justin Hunter left Sunday's game against Houston with a shoulder injury.
Insight: The rookie posted 100 yards and a touchdown in Weeks 12 and 14 but has not caught a pass since.
Chris Johnson, RB12/27/2013 9:56:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Chris Johnson says there's "no way" he'll take a pay cut next season and that he doesn't think it's his fault the running game has struggled. "It's a team effort," he said. SOURCE: Jim Wyatt, the Tennessean
Insight: Johnson is scheduled to make $8 million in 2014 and likely will be released. The 28-year-old has rushed for 950 yards and five touchdowns on 252 carries (3.8 ypc) this season with a long gain of just 30 yards. He's added 39 catches for 331 yards and four touchdowns to rank ninth among running backs in fantasy points. Johnson has consistently shifted blame to his teammates for his struggles over the last few seasons.
Nate Washington, WR12/22/2013 5:19:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Nate Washington had his first 100-yard game since Week 4 Sunday at Jacksonville.
Insight: Washington had 117 yards and a touchdown on six catches, giving him 209 yards over his last two games. If he can put up 120 yards in Week 17, Washington will get to 1,000 yards for the second time in three years.
Chris Johnson, RB12/22/2013 5:17:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Chris Johnson ran for 90 yards on 22 carries Sunday at Jacksonville.
Insight: Shonn Greene had 91 yards on 19 carries and scored a touchdown, which won't make Johnson owners happy. Johnson will need 50 rushing yards in Week 17 to reach 1,000 for the sixth straight season.
