2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Titans' vastly improved offense in 2016 won't sneak up on fantasy owners this season. Tennessee's remade offense ranked them in the top half of the league in scoring and yards per game last year after placing in the bottom five in both categories following the 2015 season. One of the biggest factor's to the newfound success is Marcus Mariota's development as a quarterback. Playing off a superior ground game, Mariota has become an efficient sniper by picking apart defenses and being effective when forced to scramble. Whether or not fantasy owners want to put faith in a guy who has passed for over 300 yards just three times in two years is the real issue. The Titans are going to be a run first team again in 2017 so any increase in passing attempts will be the result of more snaps on offense rather than a decision to throw more often. Similarly, the addition of Eric Decker adds more floor than ceiling to Mariota's projections. Tennessee's franchise quarterback is progressing well from a broken leg suffered at the end of last season and has taken part in drills during OTAs and mini camp. He should be taking reps with the first team when training camp opens so health shouldn't be an issue. Consider him a favorable backup fantasy quarterback that could become quality trade bait during the year.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Marcus Mariota active for MNF
Will miss only one game with hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 16, 7:25 pm

Tennessee Titans
Titans QB Marcus Mariota is officially starting tonight against the #Colts. He misses just one game with a hamstring. (NFL.com - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Mariota's return is an upgrade to all Titans' regulars. Owners should consider starting him as they normally would against the Colts, but they should also consider the possibility of the coaching staff limiting his called runs in this game if they are choosing between Mariota and Jacoby Brissett.


Injury Mariota questionable, gametime decision
Titans play Monday
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 15, 8:00 am

Tennessee Titans
The decision of who will start at quarterback for the Tennessee Titans will likely linger until game day for the second consecutive week. Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's AFC South matchup with the Indianapolis Colts. Mariota, who missed last week's game against the Miami Dolphins, has made good progress throughout a week of practice, but the Titans don't want to put him out there if he can't protect himself. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Mike Mularkey stated that Mariota could play at less than 100 percent. It sounds like Mariota will likely miss, meaning Matt Cassel would get another start, but we won't know for sure until Monday. If Mariota does sit, it would be a downgrade for the entire Titans offensive players.


Injury Marcus Mariota not expected to play
Hamstring injury

Tennessee Titans
Titans QB Marcus Mariota, considered game-time decision due to hamstring, not expected to play vs. Dolphins, per source. Matt Cassel starts. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Expect to see Matt Casell under center for the Titans against the Raiders. Casell went 4-of-10 for 21 yards and 2 INTs last week. He's not a recommended option in Week 5.


Marcus Mariota status unclear
Limited on Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 4, 4:30 pm

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Mularkey says quarterback Marcus Mariota is still unclear for their upcoming matchup with the Miami Dolphins. The Titans coach remains hopeful that Mariota will play despite a strained hamstring . (Marcus Mariota)

FFToday's Take: The Titans signed backup Brandon Weeden yesterday suggesting they may be without Mariota for Week 5 against the Dolphins. Matt Cassel would start if Mariota sits and it wouldn't be surprising to see a run-heavy gameplan from the Titans regardless of which QB gets the start.


Injury Marcus Mariota day-to-day
Suffered hamstring injury in Week 4
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 2, 5:50 pm

Tennessee Titans
The Titans consider QB Marcus Mariota day-to-day with his hamstring injury. That’s good news for their star. (NFL.com - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: If Mariota is able to return this week, he gets a nice matchup against a weary Miami defense that has allowed quarterbacks to complete 79 percent of their passes. The Dolphins will be returning home from London after playing the previous two weeks in Los Angeles and New York and still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Irma in their day-to-day lives. If he can go, Mariota needs to be in lineups this week.


Injury Corey Davis expected ready for Week 1
Rookie WR's hamstring issue shouldn't keep him out of opener
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 29, 10:40 am

Tennessee Titans
Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) on Twitter: "With the season looming, health questions come into focus. For #Titans, WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is expected to be ready for the opener" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is great news for folks who took late-round shot on Davis in fantasy drafts. Expect some struggles for the rookie receiver, but some possible upside as he establishes a connection with Marcus Mariota.


Marcus Mariota playing lighter in 2017
Titans QB down to 215 pounds
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 25, 8:15 am

Tennessee Titans
Despite the Titans' recommendations for him to play at 225-230 pounds, Marcus Mariota is listening to his trainer Ryan Flaherty and hoping to avoid injury by playing at 215 pounds this season. (Oregon Live)

FFToday's Take: "I have always told Marcus that I thought he should play at 215 pounds because I felt like he was the fastest at that weight," Flaherty told reporter Paul Kuharsky. "The No. 1 injury QBs suffer in the NFL is AC sprain and that's from getting hit. I told him that they can't hit what they can't catch so he should think about playing at a weight where he is his fastest. This should have little effect on his fantasy numbers, outside the possibility of a few more rushing yards.
