Titans WR battling knee injury
|Mularkey: Kendall Wright has done well in practice. "I think he's back. Full-go." (Titans on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Wright has missed the last three games with a knee injury but will be back in action against a Raiders defense that's in the middle of the pack against wide receivers. Wright and TE Delanie Walker should receive the most targets from Mariota.

FF Today's Take: Wright has missed the last two games with a knee injury and will miss Thursday night's game with Jacksonville. Harry Douglas and Dorial Green-Beckham are expected to be the leading wideouts with TE Delanie Walker soaking up targets as well.

FF Today's Take: Wright will miss his second straight game with a knee injury. Harry Douglas, Justin Hunter and Dorial Green-Beckham will be the top three receivers for Marcus Mariota.

Plus matchup against the Saints
|Former Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt got exactly five games with Marcus Mariota.
But it looks like interim coach Mike Mularkey’s going to jump right in.
According to Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website, Mariota has practiced for the third straight day, and Mularkey said after practice that he would start this week.
FF Today's Take: Mariota has missed the last two games with a knee injury but appears good to go for Week 9. He has a plus matchup against the Saints defense that allows the most fantasy points to quarterbacks. However, Mariota will be without Kendall Wright who is nursing a knee injury of his own.
| Kendall Wright "obviously" out for Week 9 -- Thu Nov 5 5:15 pm --|
|Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints due to a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
Titans interim HC Mike Mularkey said, "He's walking the hallways better, he's living in the training room, but he's obviously out for the week."

FF Today's Take: Mularkey's comment suggest Wright will miss multiple weeks, which is par for the course with his injury. Mularkey was probably hoping to have his best receiver available in hopes he could pair him back up with rookie QB Marcus Mariota again, but that will not happen. Douglas will serve as the Titans' WR1, but expect TE Delanie Walker to dominate targets in what figures to be a very conservative game plan for Tennessee.

Zach Mettenberger expected to start

FF Today's Take: Mariota has been bothered by a knee injury and didn't practice this week. Zach Mettenberger's start doesn't necessarily mean the Titans offense will become a shell of itself. He's been adequate in his limited time as starter including 345 yds and 2 TDs against the Eagles last season, but the upside for receivers Kendall Wright and TE Delanie Walker takes a slight hit.
