Derrick Henry - RBPosted 2/6/19 8:32am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be a big part of the offense in 2019 as offensive coordinator Arthur Smith said they plan to run a lot of zone blocking schemes. 'Derrick will be a big part of the offense,' Smith said. 'He has a rare skill set. Derrick's a home-run hitter. Zone is a great starting point for us, but there are a lot of schemes that fit Derrick and fit Dion (Lewis), or whoever else will be on our roster that we will hand the ball (to.) Gaps, pin and pulls, zone reads, but there's a certain mentality that we want to play with coming off the football. We want to be physical and knock people back.'
Huddle Up: Henry emerged into a solid RB2 this season with a 215-1,059-12 line. He doesn't factor in much in the passing game, which suppresses his value in PPR leagues. However, he figures to be another supplemental piece to your roster early in drafts in 2019.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 1/3/19 6:09pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) said he hopes to receive clearance to resume running in the coming weeks and wants to be ready when OTAs begin.
Huddle Up: He was lost for the year in Week 1, but Walker had topped 800 receiving yards in each of the four previous seasons. At 34 years old, his best years are likely behind him, but Marcus Mariota has always loved throwing to him. Walker could still be a low-end TE1 as long as he is ready for the start of the 2019 season.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/30/18 6:21am ET
Contrary to a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) is not expected play in Week 17's game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a nerve condition caused by a stinger, according to multiple sources familiar with his injury. An independent nerve specialist reportedly told the Titans that further damage could jeopardize Mariota's ability to throw the football beyond this weekend.
Huddle Up: Mariota was listed as questionable on the injury report and remains likely to test his arm during pregame warmups, for a contest which has playoff implications for both clubs. Blaine Gabbert is expected to start in his place but is not a great option in any fantasy format.
Luke Stocker - TEPosted 12/30/18 8:46pm ET
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Luke Stocker (ankle) returned to the Week 17 game against the Indianapolis Colts and he had a 22-yard touchdown on his only grab.
Huddle Up: Stocker ended up with 15 catches, 165 yards and two touchdowns, serving as the de facto No. 1 tight end down the stretch. He's more of a blocking tight end, but did OK filling in for the injured Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith. Heading into 2019 it's back to no fantasy value.
Blaine Gabbert - QBPosted 12/30/18 11:14pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Blaine Gabbert went 18-for-29 for 165 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions during the team's season-ending loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Gabbert never looked particularly sharp, but he fell apart late with a killer interception while driving for a potential tying score. The veteran is a pure game manager.
Dion Lewis - RBPosted 12/30/18 11:30pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis caught three passes for 23 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17. He did not record a carry.
Huddle Up: Lewis' involvement flatlined over the season's final month after typically getting more work than Derrick Henry up until that point. Lewis is almost sure to return as the team's top pass-catching option out of the backfield, though, and should at least hold value in PPR leagues.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 12/30/18 11:21pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry carried 16 times for 93 yards and added a 13-yard reception against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Henry became the team's bell cow late in the season and looked equal to the task. His lack of involvement in the passing game knocks him down a peg or two, especially in PPR formats, but he figures to be in the RB2 conversation.
Corey Davis - WRPosted 12/30/18 11:36pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis caught five passes for 48 yards in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts. Davis was targeted seven times.
Huddle Up: While Davis' final numbers don't pop off the screen, the state of QB play in Tennessee rarely ascended beyond "meh." The wideout looks to be a talent on the rise and could be a nice WR3/WR4 with upside in 2019.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/29/18 6:34pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota ranks 26th in passing yards, 29th in touchdowns and 22nd in passer rating this season, and he is averaging the third-fewest passing yards per game among starting quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: Mariota will show flashes of his potential, but between the injuries and inconsistent play, it's tough to view him as more than a week-to-week streaming option in fantasy leagues going forward.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/29/18 11:35pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot), who was listed as questionable on the Week 17 injury report, will warm up with the intention of playing in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Rapoport acknowledges Mariota will not be completely healthy, but the Titans would much rather take him at less than 100 percent than start Blaine Gabbert. Tennessee's fortunes figure to rest on the shoulders of Derrick Henry as it is, although the Colts own a top-10 rush defense this season. Mariota should be viewed as a middling QB2 option this week.
Tajae Sharpe - WRPosted 12/28/18 3:08pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 28, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 17 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Sharpe has been limited to just one grab over the past three games, so his fantasy appeal is rather minimal. However, he did post one of his two touchdowns this season against the Colts back on Nov. 18, posting five grabs for 37 yards and the score. DFS players might want to roll the dice on him, but seasonal fantasy players should still avoid.
Blaine Gabbert - QBPosted 12/28/18 3:00pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 28 and he is listed as questionable for the Week 17 showdown with the Indianapolis Colts. If he cannot start it would be QB Blaine Gabbert under center.
Huddle Up: Mariota is a risky fantasy play for Sunday's winner-take-all game, but the Titans are exponentially better if he is healthy and able to contribute.
Corey Davis - WRPosted 12/28/18 2:58pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 28 but he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 17 game with the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: It's all hands on deck for the winner-take-all AFC South Division title clash in Indianapolis. David has managed three or more grabs in seven of his past nine games to emerge as a decent WR4 in PPR fantasy formats, with lesser appeal in standard play.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 12/27/18 10:36am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has rushed for 532 yards and eight touchdowns in four games in December. That's the most rushing yards by any player in a calendar month this season.
Huddle Up: Henry gets one more game to add to his December yardage total -- which is 98 more yards than he gained in his first 11 games combined -- and it will come in the AFC South showdown against the Colts, who allow the 11th-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Henry is averaging 24.3 touches per game, though, over his last three contests so you're going to keep firing him up as a RB1.
Corey Davis - WRPosted 12/27/18 1:35pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Davis is in any danger of missing the Week 17 game. He has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last four games but could still be at least a flex option in some leagues.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/27/18 1:34pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Mariota is trying to prepare for the Week 17 game, but he could be a game-time decision depending on how he feels. He has been held to under 200 yards in each of his last three games and should be kept on the bench even if he is able to play.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/26/18 5:20am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) said the stinger he suffered made his entire right side numb and tingly, and the team added a quarterback to the roster.
Huddle Up: Mariota doesn't sound too confident he'll be able to play in the season finale. Blaine Gabbert is not an option in fantasy except if you're desperate in two-QB leagues.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/26/18 12:10pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (shoulder) was held out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: If Mariota keeps missing practice this week then Blaine Gabbert will be under center for the season finale. Neither guy is a recommended start or DFS play going up against an underrated Indianapolis Colts pass defense.
Blaine Gabbert - QBPosted 12/22/18 2:33pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (upper body) left the Week 16 game against the Washington Redskins in the second quarter due to an apparent upper-body injury. He left for the locker room for treatment and QB Blaine Gabbert checked into the game.
Huddle Up: Mariota missed time earlier in the season due to an elbow injury, and it's possible he could have aggravated that right arm issue. There will likely be an update during halftime.
Corey Davis - WRPosted 12/22/18 4:27pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis caught three passes for 45 yards on five targets Saturday, Dec. 22, against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: The five targets paced the Titans, but Davis wasn't able to do much with them. Tennessee continued to ride the running game en route to a key win. Heading into next year, Davis holds low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 value.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 12/22/18 4:32pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry turned 21 carries into 84 yards and a touchdown Saturday, Dec. 22, versus the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Henry has been one of the fantasy running backs over the final weeks of the season, simultaneously helping fantasy owners in the playoffs and increasing his 2019 outlook. With Dion Lewis still in the mix, though, Henry resides in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory as an altogether inconsistent player.
Dion Lewis - RBPosted 12/22/18 6:03pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis rushed three times for five yards and caught three of his four targets for 20 yards in a 25-16 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Derrick Henry emerging as a workhorse for the ground game, Lewis has become nothing more than a third-down back. Even in PPR formats, he's no longer a starting option for fantasy owners.
Taywan Taylor - WRPosted 12/22/18 11:02pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor caught all three of his targets for 64 yards in Week 16 versus the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Taylor has posted solid totals in each of the Titans' last three home games, but he only has one touchdown on the year and doesn't have enough upside to warrant a spot on redraft fantasy rosters. He is more than talented enough to be Corey Davis' long-term sidekick, but the expected return of Delanie Walker in 2019 figures to keep him off the fantasy radar for the foreseeable future.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/20/18 12:34pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (foot) was a full practice participant Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Mariota and the Titans figure to enter Saturday's contest with a run-first mindset, as they have done the last couple of games. Mariota should not be started even with a decent matchup against the Washington Redskins.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 12/18/18 9:50am ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is no longer wearing a walking boot or cast and was cleared to walk on a treadmill 10 days ago he said Tuesday, Dec. 18. He is awaiting clearance to run.
Huddle Up: Walker went down in the season opener with a broken ankle but is hoping to return if the Titans make the postseason.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/18/18 4:00pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (foot) was limited in practice Tuesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Mariota puts up a solid stat line every now and then, but this is not the week to risk an every now and then performance. He's comfortably in QB2 territory, especially if he's not at full strength.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 12/18/18 7:19pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry needs to run for 240 yards in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins to set an NFL record (since 1970) for the most rushing yards by one player over a three-game span. O.J. Simpson holds the record with 647.
Huddle Up: A 240-yard day is usually a pipe dream for any running back - even in the best matchup - but Henry rumbled for 238 yards in Week 14 before coming back with 170 in Week 15. Saquon Barkley just gashed the Redskins for 170 yards on the ground in Week 14, so another big day for Henry cannot be ruled out. Either way, the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner obviously needs to be in lineups for the championship game in most fantasy leagues this week.
Derrick Henry - RBPosted 12/16/18 2:02pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries against the New York Giants in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Henry has rushed for seven touchdowns in the last three games and will continue to be a main factor in the team's offense. He can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in all leagues next week.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 12/16/18 1:48pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota went 12-for-20 for 88 yards against the New York Giants in Week 15. He also rushed for 11 yards on two carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Mariota did not have to do much in order for the Titans to win this week but likely will post better numbers next week against the Washington Redskins. He should only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues and can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Corey Davis - WRPosted 12/16/18 2:18pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis caught three passes for 33 yards against the New York Giants in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Davis has been held to under 45 yards in four of the last five games but does have two touchdowns during that span. He should be able to post better numbers next week and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option.
