2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
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

Jul 21, 06:22 PM Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was allegedly sucker punched in a Nashville bar this weekend but did not need medical attention. The owner of the bar said Mettenberger did not throw any punches.
Jul 21, 01:33 PM The Tennessee Titans have continued to talk with DT Jurrell Casey about a contract extension but no deal is close at this point.
Jul 21, 11:02 AM Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is drawing big comparisons to retired WR Randy Moss from WR Michael Preston. 'Not only is the sky the limit, I think he's going to be alright (personally),' Preston said. 'I know how great a player Randy Moss was, and in my mind, there's no reason Justin can't be the next greatest player ? I just want to be there to support him. I know he's going to grow, make a great leap this year, and impress the city and fans with his talent.'

Fantasy Impact: Hunter really seems primed for a breakout season.

Jul 10, 05:42 PM Tennessee Titans rookie RB Bishop Sankey recently said he's in great shape and is reviewing plays every day with running backs coach Sylvester Croom. Sankey believes he can have a big impact once he gets plays down and used to his teammates

Phillips recently said 'there may be some guys who have never heard of me and may not give me the respect I deserve.' Phillips added that in order to gain that respect, he needs to make them notice his play. Phillips signed a two-year deal with the Titans this offseason.
Jul 10, 04:22 PM Cleveland Browns first-round draft choice CB Justin Gilbert, Tennessee Titans first-round draft choice OT Taylor Lewan, Jacksonville Jaguars second-round draft choice WR Marqise Lee and Miami Dolphins third-round draft choice OT Billy Turner are the only draft picks unsigned at this point.

'It is wide open, and that is what this coaching staff has been telling me,' Hagan said. 'When your number is called, do your job the right way, and that is what I have been known to do, and that is why I have been able to last in this league for so long. 'I might not have been the star on teams I've played on, but I'm a guy that contributes and a guy you can count on.'
