Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown is expected to play in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 25. Brown said he is still working on his conditioning.
Huddle Up: Brown missed a majority of training camp because of an injury but is still on track to becoming a solid part of the team's passing game. He can be a late-round option in fantasy leagues as depth at the position.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 19. It's his first practice since Day 1 of training camp.
Huddle Up: Henry is suddenly a strong value as an RB2 at the end of the third round. He has long struggled with consistent production over the course of a full season, but he dominated at the end of the 2018 season and has the added incentive of a contract year. His ADP is likely to rise quickly now that he's back on the field.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota isn't a lock to open the season as the team's starter, according to camp observers and even if Mariota does beat out offseason addition Ryan Tannehill, he will have a short leash.
Huddle Up: Coming off last season's injury-hampered season, Mariota remains the favorite but should be valued as a QB3 for now given his track record and risk of losing his gig.

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker caught both of his targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in a 22-17 preseason loss to the New England Patriots Saturday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Walker missed all but one game last year, and while his best days are behind him, he has always been one of Marcus Mariota's favorite targets. Walker is still worth a look as a low-end TE1.

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) said Thursday, Aug. 13, he expects to play against the New England Patriots in his team's second preseason game.
Huddle Up: Walker has slipped down the fantasy ranks this year and is a low-end TE1. WRs Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor and Adam Humphries figure to lead the pass-catching corps, with second-round pick WR A.J. Brown a high-upside option. The Titans will also continue to be extremely run-focused with RBs Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.
Posted 8/14/2019 11:08 am UTC
Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 14. Head coach Mike Vrabel said Humphries will be reevaluated and hopefully will be able to practice Thursday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Humphries will miss any significant time because of the injury. He should serve as the slot receiver for the Titans and likely will receive a solid amount of targets. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 8/12/2019 11:08 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (undisclosed) worked on the side during practice Monday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: Henry appears to be making good progress in his recovery, but fantasy players should continue to keep an eye on the situation. He will receive a majority of the carries this season if he is healthy and can be a No. 2 fantasy back.
Posted 8/12/2019 12:08 am UTC
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (calf) was able to work out on the side during practice Sunday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: After a strong finish to last season, Henry is finally expected to be treated like a workhorse back. At worst, he should be a volume-based RB2, and he has legitimate RB1 upside.
Posted 8/11/2019 8:08 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (undisclosed) did not participate in team drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Davis does not need much playing time during the preseason, so he has several weeks to recover from his injury. He will be the main option in the passing game for Tennessee and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 8/08/2019 4:08 am UTC
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota had a 'solid day' throwing the ball, especially in the red zone, during practice Tuesday, Aug. 6, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com.
Huddle Up: Mariota has flashed his potential as a passer and a runner for short stretches, but injuries and inconsistent play have kept him from being more than a streaming option for fantasy owners. The Titans have done their best to surround him with weapons, but he remains a QB2 with upside.
Posted 8/06/2019 12:08 am UTC
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (undisclosed) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Davis is on track to be the main option in the passing game for the Titans and will see plenty of targets this season. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 8/02/2019 5:08 pm UTC
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (undisclosed) was given a maintenance day off for most of practice Friday, Aug. 2, and should be 'fine,' head coach Mike Vrabel said.
Huddle Up: Likely nothing but something to keep an eye on as Davis projects to vie with TE Delanie Walker for the team target lead.
Posted 7/30/2019 4:07 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (calf) is wearing a walking boot while recovering from a strained calf muscle that is expected to sideline him about two weeks, a source said Tuesday, July 30. The injury is not considered serious, and the team is playing it cautious.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on, but Henry should recover well in time before the games that matter. He remains a solid RB2 pick.
Posted 7/30/2019 2:07 am UTC
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, July 29.
Huddle Up: Henry is reportedly in a walking boot, so it may be a while before he returns to the field. Henry should be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back this season if he is healthy.
Posted 7/28/2019 12:07 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (leg) was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot after being injured during the first day of training camp Friday, July 26, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation. Head coach Mike Vrabel said Henry was listed as day-to-day and added that the injury was not serious Friday, but did not provide an update on his condition Saturday, July 27.
Huddle Up: It is unclear if Henry injured his left foot or ankle but he will almost certainly be held out of practice for several days. He is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the Titans this year and should be viewed as a decent RB2 option in standard fantasy formats.
Posted 7/17/2019 1:07 am UTC
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran for 625 yards and eight touchdowns on 97 carries in five December games last season. New offensive coordinator Arthur Smith intends to ride Henry in 2019, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.
Huddle Up: Henry is entering the final year of his contract and has a solid offensive line in front of him, which may be the two most important reasons why the Titans may not care about running him into the ground. Other reasons may include Smith not knowing if Marcus Mariota can hold up his end of the deal. If Smith stays true to his word, Henry has as good of a chance to lead the league in rushing as any back.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota needs to earn a long-term commitment from the team as he enters the fifth-year option of his rookie deal in 2019, according to head coach Mike Vrabel. 'I think everybody has a contract, and we're very aware of players who are in the last year of the deal. Marcus is obviously one of those,' Vrabel said. 'When you make a commitment to the QB you want to make sure that this is going to be your guy for the next 7-10 years when you look at the percentage of the cap quarterbacks are driving. Nobody is more proud of what Marcus has done in the offseason than me. He's come back stronger, bigger, with greater understanding of what we're doing offensively, being able to communicate it to players the field. I don't look at the lack of a long-term extension as a negative, though that's what people try to make it. I know Marcus's demeanor and that won't change whether he's on a 10-year contract or its up after the season. He's that type of person. So I know it'll work because of how he is.'
Huddle Up: Extra motivation could very well boost Mariota's fantasy numbers in 2019. The 25-year-old has completed 63.2 percent of passes over his 56 games (55 starts) with 69 touchdowns against 42 interceptions. He has scored at least two rushing TDs in each of his four seasons. After receiving plenty of hype last offseason, Mariota is worth a flier for those deploying a late-round quarterback strategy.
Posted 7/16/2019 6:07 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is expected to be ready for Week 1, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.
Huddle Up: Walker recently stated he wasn't sure if he would begin camp of the Physically Unable to Perform list, but he was optimistic he would be ready for the season opener. The Titans have little reason to rush the 35-year-old, who has been Marcus Mariota's favorite target since the latter entered the league. If he can return to form, it should come as no surprise if Walker has at least one more low-end TE1 season left in him.
Posted 7/08/2019 6:07 pm UTC
Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) isn't sure whether he will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list or not, telling The MMQB that he'll 'leave it up to the coaches.' Walker did return to the field during organized team activities and felt good about his progress, according to The MMQB.
Huddle Up: While Walker's recovery - or at least his return to full-scale workouts - has taken longer than expected, it doesn't sound like he's in any real danger of missing games, although the Titans may choose to ease him into camp and preseason action. Assuming he is 100 percent by some point next month, he's a fine TE1 choice who should come at a discounted price.
Posted 7/08/2019 6:07 am UTC
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill will be the backup to QB Marcus Mariota, head coach Mike Vrabel said again on Sunday, July 7. He said Tannehill's job is to make Mariota better. 'His job as a backup - everybody's job as a backup - is to push the guy in front of him,' Vrabel said.
Huddle Up: Tannehill was obviously the starter in Miami, but he is insurance in case Mariota goes down to injury. However, you can scratch him off of your cheat sheets heading into training camp and the preseason barring a disaster in Nashville.
Posted 7/07/2019 7:07 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) should be a full participant at thee start of training camp, in the opinion PaulKuharsky.com's Paul Kuharsky.
Huddle Up: Walker missed a majority of the 2018 season because of the injury but has had a lot of time to rehab his ankle. He should have a solid role in the passing game if he is healthy and can be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/24/2019 1:06 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been encouraged to take fewer hits by general manager Jon Robinson. 'The thing I've stressed to him, and I know our coaches have stressed to him is, Let's live to play another play,' Robinson said. 'Don't take that hit. If you feel the pocket coming down on you and you take off running, and the 'backer is coming off of coverage and he's coming screaming at you, throw the ball away. It's OK to punt, we'll get another crack at it. That's the main thing, it's stressing to him - to try as best as possible, like all quarterbacks do, to avoid getting hit.'
Huddle Up: Mariota's durability has been a problem with nagging injuries throughout his career. It has suppressed him to a low-end QB1 in fantasy.
Posted 6/21/2019 3:06 am UTC
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis spent the offseason working on his body control, and Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com said Davis was going up to make catches in traffic on a regular basis during spring practices.
Huddle Up: Davis was Tennessee's top receiver last year with 891 yards, and if he and Marcus Mariota both take a step forward in 2019, a 1,000-yard campaign could be on tap. Davis has enough potential to take a chance on as a low-end WR3.
Posted 5/31/2019 1:05 am UTC
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) was able to participate in 7-on-7 drills during practice Thursday, May 30.
Huddle Up: Coming off an injury, the veteran tight end isn't likely to provide a lot of explosive plays at this stage in his career. However, he has always been one of Marcus Mariota's favorite targets, and he could still provide low-end TE1 production as Mariota's safety valve.
Posted 5/28/2019 6:05 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota currently weighs about 230 pounds - reportedly 12 or 13 pounds more from where he ended last season.
Huddle Up: In the linked article, former Titans strength and conditioning coach Steve Watterson spoke about a cautionary percent of body fat for different players at different positions and generally about how additional weight for Mariota and other thinner players can protect them. While 230 pounds might rob the fifth-year quarterback of some of his dynamic running ability, the Titans would be happy with the trade-off if it meant they could have him for 16 games. Regardless, he should remain a fantasy QB2.
Posted 5/09/2019 2:05 pm UTC
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis said the game slowed down a lot in his second season in 2018. 'Me and Marcus (Mariota,) our chemistry is growing every day, and it's continuing to grow,' Davis said. 'Our job is to get open and catch the ball... Our chemistry is looking good and continuing to grow.'
Huddle Up: Davis quietly had a solid 65-891-4 season and will look to build on that as he's right around that WR3-WR4 turn in fantasy.
Posted 5/04/2019 6:05 am UTC
Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe could be the odd man out among Tennessee's receivers, in the opinion of Bill Barnwell, who sees the additions of WRs Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown as possibly pushing Sharpe off the roster since he doesn't play special teams.
Huddle Up: Sharpe has played in all 32 games since being a fifth-round pick in 2016, starting 23 of them, but his production has been underwhelming. As Barnwell notes, the Titans used significant resources to acquire Humphries and Brown, and if that sends Sharpe down the depth chart they might simply choose to move on. Sharpe doesn't carry meaningful fantasy value.
Posted 4/13/2019 5:04 pm UTC
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
