|Tennessee used a 2012 first-round pick to acquire Wright, and expectations were high that he would bring the playmaking ability he displayed at Baylor to the Titans offense. However, a subpar 40-time prior to the draft raised some concerns about whether he could replicate his college success in the pros. The naysayers were proven correct. While Wright hauled in a very respectable 64 passes as a rookie, he averaged just 9.8 yards per reception and found the end zone only four times. It remains to be seen whether his lack of big plays was the result of poor play calling, poor quarterback play or his physical limitations. Offseason reports indicate that Wright has had a solid offseason, but he faces healthy competition for targets in a deep Titans wide receiver depth chart. Combine that with quarterback Jake Locker's poor accuracy, and Wright appears to have limited upside in 2013. Consider him a WR4 and move him up in PPR leagues.

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.
