2014 DRAFT GUIDE

Tennessee Titans
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Titans finished 7-9 last season, so things weren't all the bad with the team. The defense played better than the last few seasons, which helped matters for the team. The offense still was very inconsistent, though, and needs to be much better this season if the Titans hope to finish .500 or better. Much of the offense depends on Jake Locker. Will Locker finally take that step forward this season? If he is, this is the season with quarterback guru Whisenhunt at the helm. We aren't completely sold on Locker, meaning a season similar to last year seems likely for the Titans.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Justin Hunter had a quiet rookie season in a reserve role but did have a couple big games, showing his potential. He'll get his shot for a much bigger role this season. Hunter is a top big-play threat in this offense with a ton of talent. He probably is the most talented receiver on the roster. New coach Ken Whisenhunt will find ways to get Hunter involved in the offense and reach his potential. He has a real shot to post big numbers this season.
FANTASY DUD
Running back Shonn Greene was supposed to split work with rookie Bishop Sankey this season but Greene had offseason knee surgery, clouding his status going forward. He missed a lot of offseason workouts, giving Sankey a shot to run away with the running back job. We just don't see Greene playing a big role in the offense this season. Sankey is a much more explosive back with more potential for big things. Greene will get sporadic work in a reserve role.

Team Notes

Aug 19, 10:33 AM Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is not a fumbler, and his issues are related to footwork and technique, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Aug 19, 09:23 AM Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 18. QB Charlie Whitehurst (finger) and OT Taylor Lewan (ankle) did not practice.
Aug 18, 11:42 AM Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter has the potential to be a terror in the red zone. He put himself in great position to go up and catch a ball over a defender on his 4-yard touchdown catch in the second preseason game.

Fantasy Impact: We really think Hunter is primed for a breakout season.
Aug 16, 12:52 AM Tennessee Titans LB Colin McCarthy (shoulder) had season-ending surgery Friday, Aug. 15. The procedure reportedly went well. 'Surgery went great. Now it's just the road to recovery,' McCarthy posted on his official Twitter account.
Aug 16, 12:52 AM Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had six runs for 31 yards in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the New Orleans Saints, but he also lost a fumble after an issue on the exchange with QB Zach Mettenberger, something which has reportedly been an issue throughout camp.

Fantasy Impact: His fumble issues are a concern but he has a good shot to get most of the carries in this offense.
Aug 16, 12:52 AM Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Charlie Whitehurst (finger) said Friday, Aug. 15, that X-rays on his right pinkie 'are fine.' He was forced out of the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints due to the injury.
Aug 16, 12:52 AM Tennessee Titans OT Michael Oher (arm) suffered an arm injury in the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 15. He said he could have returned to the game.
Aug 16, 12:52 AM Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) said Friday, Aug. 15, that he suffered a hyperextended knee in the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints. Greene suspects he will be OK.

Fantasy Impact: We'll keep you posted as this is a bit of a concern because of his recent injury woes.
