Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will be replaced by backup Ryan Tannehill Sunday, Oct. 20, for the Week 7 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.
Huddle Up: Mariota should be kept in dynasty leagues, as the former No. 2 overall pick will surely get a look elsewhere is the Titans choose to part ways, but his time in Tennessee appears to be done. He can be dropped in all redraft formats and all but the deepest of keeper leagues.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota 13-for-22 for 183 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5. He also rushed for 13 yards on five carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Mariota has been inconsistent in terms of his performances. He has thrown for at least three touchdowns in two games this season and has been held to one touchdown in the other three combined. He will be facing the Denver Broncos next week but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota went 18-for-27 for 227 yards and three touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. He also rushed for 22 yards on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Mariota has thrown seven touchdowns and zero interceptions in four games this season and was able to connect with multiple receivers this week. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense next week but could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota remains the team's starter as head coach Mike Vrabel said Friday, Sept. 20, that the team is currently not looking to make a change at the position .
Huddle Up: Despite two straight losses, Mariota's three-game season stats (60.9 completion percentage, 706 yards, 4-0 TD-to-interception ratio) aren't horrible, and one of the main issues has been a lack of protection with Tennessee surrendering 17 sacks in three games and a 15.6 percent sack rate. Ryan Tannehill, though, is one of the league's better backups, and if the Titans can't turn things around in the win column over the next few weeks, expect to see a QB change in the Music City.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 22 of 39 passing for 282 yards Thursday, Sept. 19, against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. Mariota did not throw a touchdown pass, nor was he intercepted. He added 34 yards on six carries. Jacksonville sacked Mariota nine times.
Huddle Up: Mariota is barely worth rostering in fantasy at this point. His line was beaten like a drum, and there are unfixable problems with his accuracy. Tennessee heads to Atlanta in Week 3 for a favorable matchup.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Mariota has thrown for four touchdowns over the first two games of the season but also has been held to under 250 yards in both games. He will be facing a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense this week and probably can be kept on the bench in most leagues.

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (quadriceps) is dealing with a quadriceps injury, but it is not considered very serious.
Huddle Up: Mariota has a quick turnaround with a Week 3 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night. He completed 30-of-42 passes for just 262 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in two games against the Jags in 2018, so even if he is able to play he is not a recommended fantasy option.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 16. The Titans did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will know more about Mariota's status over the next few days. He has thrown for 402 yards and four touchdowns in the first two games but will be facing a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense this week and could be benched if players have better options.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed just 19-of-28 passes for 154 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He rushed five times for 32 yards, too.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great day for Mariota, as he failed to duplicate his three-TD day from a week ago. However, he also didn't throw an interception for a second straight game, so that's nice. He remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota failed to connect on any of his three pass attempts and was sacked once in an 18-6 preseason loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: Injuries have played a role, but Mariota has shown no improvement in recent years despite upgrades to his supporting cast. Even in the best-case scenario, he is likely no more than a midrange QB2.
