|The Titans used a 1st round pick to acquire Wright and the plan is for the Baylor product to step into the slot role on opening day. Highly productive in college with over 4,000 receiving yards in his career and 14 touchdowns in 2011, Wright is known for his shiftiness and ability to make tacklers miss in the open field. A less than stellar 40-yard dash time at the combine caused his draft stock to fall but he improved on his time at his pro day. In Tennessee, Wright figures to be 4th in the receiving pecking order behind Kenny Britt, Nate Washington and Jared Cook and that doesn’t bode well for his fantasy prospects in 2012. He is worth nothing more than a late round flier in redraft leagues but is a solid prospect in dynasty leagues, especially those that employ the PPR scoring system.

FF Today's Take: Britt's fantasy stock has taken a huge tumble over the last two weeks. Nate Washington and Kendall Wright are better fantasy plays in the Titans offense.

|Justin Hunter did what the Tennessee Titans drafted him to do on Sunday – at the most crucial time of the game. Hunter went up and out-jumped Crezdon Butler and caught a 34-yard touchdown reception from Jake Locker with 15 seconds to play, propelling the Tennessee Titans to a 20-17 comeback victory over the San Diego Chargers in the home opener at LP Field.
"We have a lot of faith in Justin. Justin is going to be an extremely special player,” offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said. (Titans Insider)|
FF Today's Take: Locker reportedly asked the coaching staff to replace Kenny Britt with Hunter on the game-winning drive. However, before owners scurry to the waiver wire to pick up Hunter, keep in mind the rookie played a total of 17 snaps over the first two weeks and drew the ire of his coaches for most of the preseason. Either way, Britt's stock is pointing down in a big way while Nate Washington and Kendall Wright look to have secure roles in the Titans' offense for the foreseeable future.
