Tennessee Titans RBs Tony Pollard and Tyjae Spears are viewed comparatively as the duo has been working together in the offseason program. "Both guys, you don't have to worry about in terms of counting touches in terms of handoffs, running the ball. Because they can both catch the ball fairly well out of the backfield," running backs coach Randy Jordan said. "So, in that respect, I am not counting touches in terms of rushes. I'm counting, "Hey, you got 10 rushes, but you also got six catches, and that's a total of 16." And I think they're getting a really good feel for each other on and off the field."
Huddle Up: Spears has more home-run ability than Pollard, who tanked in his first opportunity as the bell cow in Dallas. Both are probably low-end RB2/high-end RB3s, but Spears' explosiveness gives him the upside.

Tennessee Titans QB Will Levis said he expects to "throw the ball on first down this season" and to throw the ball in situations where they didn't last season.
Huddle Up: Levis showed the ability to push the ball down the field last year, and it makes sense to lean into his big arm as much possible. Still, consistency will likely remain an issue, making Levis a boom-or-bust QB2.

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks is expected to be able to play "a good role" for the team this season despite the recent additions of Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd, according to head coach Brian Callahan. "We've made very clear to Treylon that the signing of Tyler isn't about him. It's about helping our team get better. Adding better players to our team. Making us a competitive football team. What he's done and how he's worked has been great. I'm anticipating him still being able to play a good role for us. ... You (have) to have guys that can play roles. That hasn't changed. It doesn't change anything for Treylon as far as what we're expecting from him and what I'm hopeful that he's able to bring to the offense. We communicated that to him. He's aware that (signing Boyd) is not about him," Callahan said.
Huddle Up: It is notable that Callahan made a point to say that Boyd's addition was "not about Burks," but the reality is that he will be the fourth receiver at best in this offense. Ridley and DeAndre Hopkins are firmly entrenched as the top two options in the passing game barring injury, while Callahan also noted that Boyd is a "fantastic" slot receiver. As a result, Burks likely profiles as no more than a high-upside stash in deep leagues who may get occasional use as a gadget player barring an injury to the top three receivers on the roster.

Tennessee Titans WR Tyler Boyd probably will be the leading candidate for the No. 3 receiver job this upcoming season because of his familiarity with head coach Brian Callahan's offensive scheme.
Huddle Up: Boyd probably will be used as the slot receiver of the Titans and should see a few targets each game. He can be a late round option in fantasy drafts but probably will not be a starting option most weeks unless he builds a good connection with Will Levis.

Free-agent WR Tyler Boyd (Bengals) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $4.5 million with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, May 7.
Huddle Up: The fit makes sense considering Boyd played for new head coach Brian Callahan while the latter was his offensive coordinator with the Cincinnati Bengals. Boyd should be the primary slot receiver in three-receiver packages - which Tennessee figures to use a lot - and the primary backup for Calvin Ridley and DeAndre Hopkins in two-receiver sets. Whether Boyd can be anything more than the WR5 option he has been in recent seasons will depend mostly on Will Levis, but the Titans do not lack for receiver talent for the first time in years.

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks has been impressive during the early part of the offseason program and is learning the new offense, according to head coach Brian Callahan.
Huddle Up: Burks likely will be behind DeAndre Hopkins and Calvin Ridley on the depth chart but should still have a decent role in the passing game as the No. 3 receiver. He should see a handful of targets each game but probably will not be a starting fantasy option most weeks.

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks is not a lock to have a significant role in 2024. "Treylon's potential is very high. First-round pick, we see all the talent. But he's going to get what he earns," offensive coordinator Nick Holz said on Wednesday, April 10.
Huddle Up: Burks has been incredibly disappointing over the first two seasons of his career after being selected with the No. 18 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Not only has he battled injury, including two concussions, but he also hasn't managed to be productive when on the field. Making his outlook less rosy, the Titans added Calvin Ridley and are bringing back DeAndre Hopkins, which means Burks is third in the pecking order, at best. On the bright side, the Titans do have a new head coach in Brian Callahan, who may be able to get more out of the Arkansas product in a what should be a more pass-heavy offense than the one Burks was in the last two years. Even still, Burks is nothing more than a late-round flyer in re-draft leagues and is hanging on by a thread in terms of being someone owners should roster in dynasty leagues.

Tennessee Titans RBs Tony Pollard and Tyjae Spears are expected to split the backfield workload in a "1A, 1B" situation, said offensive coordinator Nick Holz on Wednesday, April 10. "We see it 1A, 1B, and they're both just gonna play a ton, get a lot of carries and let 'em roll," Holz said.
Huddle Up: Who will be the 1A in this situation is up for debate. Both Pollard and Spears have proven to be explosive backs, but the overall split in the backfield may make it a moot point for fantasy managers. View both as high-end RB3 options until more clarity on the split is given.

Free-agent WR Tyler Boyd (Bengals) has attracted interest from multiple clubs over the past month but he is unlikely to sign a contract before the 2024 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Chargers, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers are among the clubs that have been linked to Boyd in recent weeks. However, regardless of where he lands, Boyd should be viewed as a WR4 or WR5 fantasy option with limited upside in leagues of 12 or more teams.
Posted 4/02/2024 7:13 pm GMT
Free-agent WR Tyler Boyd has received "preliminary interest" from the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions, according to Mark Kaboly of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Per Kaboly, the Pittsburgh Steelers no longer appear to be interested. In terms of the best landing spot for his fantasy stock, the Chargers would seem to be his best bet - at least for now. Even if the Chargers add a first-round receiver this month, Boyd would likely be the primary slot and Justin Herbert's second-best option. The Chiefs and Dolphins would also be decent landing spots. With that said, Boyd's upside is probably in the WR5 range at this point of his career.

Tennessee Titans WR Calvin Ridley will play "a very similar role to what Ja'Marr (Chase) played" in new head coach Brian Callahan's offense when he was the offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: It comes as no surprise that Ridley is expected to become a featured part of Tennessee's offense with a new contract that averages $23 million per season in annual value, but there are enough differences between Chase and Ridley to suspect the Titans would use them differently. Assuming Callahan is being honest, fantasy managers should expect Ridley to run significantly more short and intermediate routes than he did last season. He should also see more usage out of the slot. It is great news for his current and future investors. As long as Will Levis is up to the task, Ridley could push for WR1 production in 2024.

Free-agent WR Tyler Boyd (Bengals) is receiving additional interest from the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets, according to sources Thursday, March 14. The Pittsburgh Steelers also have shown interest.
Huddle Up: Boyd is likely going to be a WR4 option with limited upside wherever he goes.
Posted 3/13/2024 9:14 pm GMT
Free-agent WR Calvin Ridley (Jaguars) agreed to terms on a four-year contact with the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, March 13, worth $92 million, according to sources. The deal includes $50 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Ridley will join DeAndre Hopkins as the main receivers in Tennessee for the foreseeable future. He should see a good amount of targets each game and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/12/2024 5:44 pm GMT
Impending free-agent WR Calvin Ridley (Jaguars) is reportedly trying to decide if he wants to remain with the Jacksonville Jaguars or leave for the New England Patriots, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The implication here is that Ridley wants to return but Jacksonville is lukewarm on bringing him back - at least at the moment - while the lack of a quality quarterback in New England could be what is holding up a deal between Ridley joining the Patriots. The likelihood is that the Jaguars will ramp up their efforts to sign him on Wednesday when they will not be forced to give up a second-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons (per conditions of the teams' trade in 2022).
Posted 3/11/2024 4:42 pm GMT
Impending free-agent RB Tony Pollard (Cowboys) agreed to a three-year deal worth $24 million with the Tennessee Titans, according to sources Monday, March 11.
Huddle Up: Pollard is coming off a disappointing 2023 season in what was his first as a starter. He'll split snaps with second-year back Tyjae Spears, and it's likely they will eat into each other's fantasy value. For now, view Pollard as an RB2 until more clarity is provided on his role.
Posted 3/06/2024 11:37 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB Tony Pollard will be testing the free-agent market but is open to re-signing with the Cowboys even if another team offers slightly more than the Cowboys, according to The Dallas Morning News' Calvin Watkins.
Huddle Up: Pollard should receive interest from multiple teams this offseason, so fantasy players should monitor the situation to see where he will play in 2024. He should see a good amount of touches wherever he plays and can be a No. 2 back or flex option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/06/2024 1:24 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Calvin Ridley appears to be on track to hit the free-agent market this offseason, and it is believed that some teams may be willing to pay him like a No. 1 receiver, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Ridley likely will be one of the top receivers if he makes free agency and should receive a nice payday from a team. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season.
Posted 3/01/2024 1:44 am GMT
Tennessee Titans QB Will Levis is viewed as the team's starting quarterback heading in the 2024 season, according to Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network.
Huddle Up: Levis flashed a powerful arm in his rookie season, but he did little else to solidify his status as a franchise quarterback. He will have some potential as a high-risk, high-reward QB2, but his performance this year will likely decided his NFL future.
Posted 2/25/2024 10:13 pm GMT
Tennessee Titans RB Tyjae Spears finished the 2023 campaign with 435 rushing yards and 838 scrimmage yards, ranking fifth and fourth among rookie backs, respectively.
Huddle Up: Spears quietly had an impressive campaign despite the fact that he was working behind Derrick Henry and one of the worst offensive lines the NFL. Spears should have a bigger role in 2024, even if Derrick Henry returns, and with his ability as a rusher and pass-catcher he should return at least flex value with more touches.
Posted 2/23/2024 2:49 pm GMT
Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard was fourth in the league with 510 yards after contact in 2023.
Huddle Up: There has been a lot of negative rhetoric surrounding Pollard, and some of it is deserved after an inconsistent fantasy season. This stat paints a different picture that maybe his o-line didn't do him many favors. He was still the RB14 in PPR leagues, and he may have room to build on that this year as a great RB2.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are interested in re-signing QB Mason Rudolph, who is an unrestricted free agent. Head coach Mike Tomlin and team president Art Rooney II have said that bringing him back is the team's top priority.
Huddle Up: Although Rudolph played well down the stretch, winning the final three games of the regular season to lead the team to a postseason berth, neither he nor Kenny Pickett should be viewed as a recommended option in 2024 redraft leagues. However, dynasty owners should hold on to Pickett if he is on their roster.
Posted 2/17/2024 6:33 pm GMT
The Pittsburgh Steelers are not interested in signing a veteran quarterback in free agency and there is some internal debate about who should start between QBs Kenny Pickett and Mason Rudolph, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on Saturday, Feb. 17.
Huddle Up: Rudolph played well down the stretch of the season but is set to hit free agency in March, so he'll have to be re-signed first. It's hard to imagine the Steelers giving up on Pickett after two seasons, but he hasn't done much to instill confidence that he's the long-term solution. Neither signal-caller is a suggested option in re-draft leagues in 2024 but Pickett should be held in dynasty formats.

Impending free-agent WR Calvin Ridley "did some awfully good things" in his first season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but general manager Trent Baalke stopped short of guaranteeing Ridley would remain with the team in 2024 - although Baalke suggested the team will "work toward" it - on Thursday, Jan. 25. "When you bring in somebody in that hasn't been a part of football for over a year and a half, you (need to) knock the rust off. He did that and, at times, he showed who he was and what he used to and what he can be. The sky's the limit. He's only going to get better because of the way he works. When you love something as much as he loves football, you can't help but get better. We would love to have Calvin back. We are going to work toward that. What that means is, I don't know right now," Baalke said.
Huddle Up: There is a draft compensation element here (a third-round pick that becomes a second if he signs a long-term deal) that makes re-signing Ridley a slightly more difficult choice. With that said, it has been well established that offensive coordinator Press Taylor fell short of maximizing Ridley's talents. However, it speaks to the receiver's talent that he still had the season he did (76 catches for 1,016 yards and eight touchdowns). Ridley stands a great chance of being an alpha receiver again in 2024 - be it in Jacksonville or for another team.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was named the starter against the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Wild Card round.
Huddle Up: Rudolph is one of the least favorable QBs to take in playoff pools in what is expected to be frigid weather.

Tennessee Titans QB Will Levis (foot) has been declared inactive for the Week 18 game.
Huddle Up: Ryan Tannehill will start the regular season finale and can be avoided in all standard leagues but could be a possible option in some two-quarterback leagues.
Posted 1/06/2024 2:58 pm GMT
Tennessee Titans QB Will Levis (foot) will serve as the team's emergency third quarterback for Week 18's game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.
Huddle Up: Levis had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging a pair of limited practice sessions earlier this week. QB Ryan Tannehill will receive the starting nod against the Jaguars and is not a recommended starting option for any fantasy format.
Posted 1/05/2024 10:19 pm GMT
Tennessee Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 5, and is not on the injury report for Week 18.
Huddle Up: Hopkins showed a good connection with Ryan Tannehill earlier in the season and should remain the focal point in the passing game this week. He can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
