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

Oct 21, 04:18 PM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) will start at quarterback when he's healthy, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. QB Charlie Whitehurst has filled in for Locker twice this year, but buzz continues to mount for QB Zach Mettenberger, the team's sixth-round draft pick this year. We're trying to get him better as we go, knowing with the way it's gone for us at quarterback this year that's something that could happen at any time, Whisenhunt said. Whisenhunt doesn't sound concerned about playing Mettenberger too soon, either.
Oct 21, 11:03 AM Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews was promoted to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Oct 20, 05:03 PM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is scheduled to throw Tuesday, Oct. 21, and the team will see how he responds Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Oct 20, 11:13 AM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is expected to play in Week 8, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Oct 20, 10:50 AM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hand) is expected to be back in Week 8. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sunday, Oct. 19, that Locker's hand was still sore this week. QB Charlie Whitehurst started in his absence in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins.
Oct 19, 03:22 PM Tennessee Titans LB Quentin Groves (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 7 and is considered questionable to return.
Oct 19, 11:42 AM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is inactive Sunday, Oct. 19, for Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Charlie Whitehurst gets another start for the Titans.
Oct 18, 12:02 PM The Tennessee Titans will sign practice squad TE Brett Brackett to their active roster. The team will also place TE Craig Stevens (quadriceps) on Reserve/Injured list.
Oct 17, 10:14 PM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Washington Redskins. Locker did very little during individual drills Friday, with QB Charlie Whitehurst taking the bulk of the repetitions. Locker has already missed two starts this year, and all signs are pointing to him missing another this weekend. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said a decision won't be made on Locker until Sunday, Oct. 19.
Oct 17, 05:22 PM Tennessee Titans CB Coty Sensabaugh (knee) and TE Taylor Thompson (knee) both did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and are doubtful for Week 7. DE Ropati Pitoitua (hand) did not practice and is questionable. S George Wilson (calf) fully practiced and is probable.
Oct 17, 02:12 PM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) isn't expected to play against the Washington Redskins in Week 7 after being limited in practice all week, in the opinion of The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt.
Oct 17, 02:12 PM Tennessee Titans QB Charlie Whitehurst saw the bulk of first-team repetitions in practice Friday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Impact: Whitehurst is likely to get the start again this week with Jake Locker hurting.
Oct 16, 07:32 PM Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7, according to a source.
Oct 16, 06:12 PM Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.
Oct 16, 06:12 PM Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hand) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Impact: Locker has a shot to return this week but is looking like a game-time decision right now.
Oct 16, 06:02 PM Tennessee Titans DE Ropati Pitoitua (hand), CB Coty Sensabaugh (knee) and TE Taylor Thompson (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16. S George Wilson (calf) was limited, while DT Jurrell Casey (non-injury) practiced in full.
