Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota said he added five to 10 pounds of "good weight" this offseason. The 25-year-old signal-caller has never played a full season in his four years in the NFL, so hopefully the added weight can keep him on the field for the long haul. He had a career-low 2,528 yards passing, 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 14 games in 2018. In Tennessee's run-first offense, Mariota is nothing more than an injury risk as a QB2.
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota told The Athletic's John Glennon on Monday, April 15, that he has put on five to 10 pounds of 'good weight so far this offseason.
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been working out and having throwing sessions with at least six of the team's pass catchers this past week leading up to the start of the offseason workouts.
Fantasy Spin: Mariota saw a drop in his passing yards this past season and has only 24 passing touchdowns over the last two seasons. His running ability helps his fantasy value, but he should still be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel confirmed at the NFL owners meetings that quarterback Marcus Mariota remains the starter, even after the club acquired Ryan Tannehill from the Dolphins. Vrabel also said he expects Mariota to be ready when the team starts their offseason program on April 15 after battling through injuries in 2018. Mariota started 13 games last season and finished with a disappointing 2,528 yards, 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions. On a run-first team without great options in the passing game, Mariota will continue to be a mediocre QB2.
The Tennessee Titans released quarterback Blaine Gabbert after they traded for Ryan Tannehill on Friday. Gabbert's only season in Tennessee in 2018 saw him make three starts while filling in for an injured Marcus Mariota. Gabbert spent 2017 with the Cardinals, three in San Francisco before that and three years in Jacksonville after being drafted 10th overall in 2010. He'll only attract backup work on the open market.
The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with free-agent wide receiver Adam Humphries (Buccaneers) on Monday. Financial terms of the deal are undisclosed, but it was believed Humphries was looking for a deal in the $8-10 million range per season. He emerged as a tremendous slot receiver in 2018, posting career highs across the board with 76 receptions, 816 yards and five touchdowns after posting four total scores in 44 games across his first three NFL seasons. He'll have the entire summer to jell with new QB Marcus Mariota, and he could be a tremendous fantasy option in PPR leagues in his new home.
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota was sacked 47 times last season - tied for 10th most in the NFL. The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt theorizes that the Titans will address the offensive line this offseason - whether that's through free agency or the draft - to help fix said issue.
The Tennessee Titans promoted tight ends coach Arthur Smith to be their offensive coordinator on Monday. Under former coordinator Matt LaFleur, who is now the head coach of the Packers, the Titans averaged 312.4 yards per game, ranking 25th in the league. They also finished 27th in the NFL by averaging just 19.4 points per game. He's not a big name in coaching circles and will be tasked with helping quarterback Marcus Mariota improve in what has been a stale run-first offense for several years.
Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (stinger) said he will not need offseason surgery to fix his nerve issues. Mariota didn't play in Week 17 after suffering a stinger and nerve damage in Week 16. He finishes 2018 with 2,528 yards (his fewest in four seasons), 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 14 games. The 25-year-old has yet to play a full season in the NFL and will remain an unattractive QB2 in a run-first offense in 2019 drafts.
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) is not expected to need surgery to address the nerve issues that have plagued him recently.
The Tennessee Titans have declared OT Aaron Stinnie, DB Kenneth Durden, DE LaTroy Lewis, RB Jeremy McNichols, LB Brian Orakpo, QB Marcus Mariota and OT Tyler Marz inactive for Week 17.
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (stinger), who is not expected to play on Sunday night in a must-win game against the Colts, would risk potential long-term injury if he plays, according to sources familiar with his injury. He will test his arm in pregame warmups but further damage would put his ability to throw the football at significant risk beyond this weekend, according to an independent spine specialist. The Titans are hoping the nerve damage will diminish with more rest and allow Mariota a chance to play in the playoffs if they win on Sunday night. Blaine Gabbert is expected to start, with Austin Davis backing him up. The Titans will definitely lean on the ground game, making pass-catchers like Corey Davis extremely hard to rely on in fantasy.
Tennessee Titans will start backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert will start in place of injured Marcus Mariota (stinger). Mariota was previously listed as questionable but ESPN was told that an "independent spine specialist has warned the Titans that further damage would put Mariota's ability to throw the football at significant risk beyond this weekend." Gabbert is a quality veteran backup but he has a propensity to turn the ball over. So, expect the Titans to run the ball a lot.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (stinger), who is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Colts on Sunday night, is going into pregame warmups on Sunday with the intention of playing, according to a source. Mariota won't be 100 percent and will have a better idea of his status before the game. Mariota is a very weak QB2 that also runs the risk of an in-game setback, which is why the team might also have both Blaine Gabbert and Austin Davis active in a must-win game. The Titans will surely try to run the ball as much as they can against Indy.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Tennessee Titans LB Brian Orakpo (elbow) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Dec. 28, but was ruled out for Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts. QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) was also limited in practice for a second straight day Friday and is listed as questionable. WR Corey Davis (hamstring) and WR Tajae Sharpe (ankle) were also limited in practice Friday but no longer appear on injury report. LB Sharif Finch (shoulder) practiced fully all week and has also been removed from the injury report.
Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (foot, neck) practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day on Friday but is officially questionable for Week 17's Sunday night matchup with the Colts. Head coach Mike Vrabel said the team will have further discussions on who will start under center. There is a scenario in which Mariota, Blaine Gabbert and Austin Davis are all active against Indy. In a must-win game that would get the Titans into the playoffs with a win, Mariota will likely start the game. However, at less than 100 percent, expect the Titans to lean on Derrick Henry and the running game as much as they can, making Mariota a weak QB2 option for fantasy owners. He's also at risk of suffering an in-game setback.
