Season Outlook

The Titans days of rebuilding are over and the team played displayed plenty of heart and playmaking ability, which has many fantasy owners excited about their fantasy outlook. QB Marcus Mariota is entering his third-season as a professional and will continue to lead this Titans offense for years to come. Mariota started in 15 games for the Titans last season, racking up 3,426 passing yards to go along with a 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He lacks a strong arm, but makes up for it with an accurate arm and quick feet to get him out of trouble. He's a low-end QB1 with added value in deep fantasy leagues. The Titans will continue to throw the ball in order to open up the field, but the team's biggest weapon is in their backfield. RB DeMarco Murray finished 3rd last season in rushing yards (1,287) and ended the season with the second-most touches. Murray is likely to be one of the first RBs off the board and is definitely viewed as an elite RB1. Tennessee's depth at wide receiver is rather thin, as Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews enter camp as Mariota's best passing options. They drafted Corey Davis with a first-round draft pick, but he's not expected to be an impact for a couple of years. Decker has spent the past three seasons with the Jets, piling up 2,183 yards and just two touchdowns. Decker has WR2 appeal while Matthews was one of the breakout fantasy players on the Titans, ending the season with a terrific 65/945//9 stat-line. He possesses break away speed and was targeted by QBs 108 times. Head coach Mike Mularkey and offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie will look to pick up where they left off as an offense, implementing a balanced yet efficient run game.

Player Outlooks & Draft Analysis

Quarterbacks

Marcus Mariota

Recovering from a late season broken leg, Mariota is expected to be a full go when training camp opens. He did a nice job of building on his solid rookie campaign, but it's worth noting that he's now failed to stay healthy for sixteen games in each of his first two seasons. That said, he's a good bet to take another step forward in 2017, as the Titans added first round pick Corey Davis and veteran Eric Decker this offseason, to what was arguably the worst wide receiver corps in the league last season. And with an improving offensive line the Titans should continue to run a balanced attack that doesn't ask an excessive amount from Mariota. There's some upside here for the future, as Mariota is efficient with the football and has a knack for getting his team in the end zone. But the strong running game and his natural conservative tendencies with the football, don't suggest he's going to consistently pass for a lot of yardage any time soon.

Running Backs

Demarco Murray

It didn't take long for Murray to convince the doubters that his underwhelming 2015 season in Philadelphia wasn't a function of age or a declining skill-set. Running behind a steadily improving Tennessee offensive line, the veteran back averaged 4.4 yards per carry on his way to 1287 yards and 9 TDs on the ground. He also topped 50+ receptions for the third time in his career and added three receiving touchdowns as well. There's no doubt that heading into his age 29 season that talented second year back, Derrick Henry is breathing down his neck on the depth chart. After all, the Titans used a second round pick on the former Heisman winner. But even though Henry should be more up to speed to open the season, if Murray can stay healthy he should still be in position to reach 300 touches again and remain a fantasy asset for at least a few more years.

Derrick Henry

Henry's short-term value is linked entirely to the health of DeMarco Murray, who turns 30 years old next offseason. But Henry has already showed enough in spelling Murray, that the Titans should feel comfortable at the running back position for the foreseeable future. Eventually Henry should take over the starter's role, but for now the Titans are expected to lean on the their veteran feature back with Henry mixing in as a change of pace a little more than he did as a rookie. All of this said, Henry immediately catapults into weekly must-play status if Murray were to miss time. He's an expensive insurance policy to be sure, but he could certainly be in line to match Murray's productivity in his stead.

Wide Receivers

Rishard Matthews

While Tajae Sharpe got all the preseason publicity, it was Matthews who quietly produced the best fantasy season by a Titans wideout last year, nearly topping 1,000 yards and scoring 9 touchdowns. But the addition of rookie first rounder Corey Davis and veteran Eric Decker are going to cut into his targets, and Delanie Walker is still a capable red zone weapon. What Matthews has going for him is that Decker is coming off another major injury that cost him most of last season and Davis is already on the shelf with a hamstring issue. If one or both miss time, he immediately becomes a value in an offense that should have little trouble moving the football.

Corey Davis Top Rookies

The number five overall pick in the draft, Davis dazzled early in training camp before a hamstring injury started to cost him valuable snaps. While he isn t the elite size-speed combination that we often think of in a number one wideout, Davis is an absolute technician as a route runner and attacks every throw with a my ball mentality. Even without elite measurables, he s gifted enough to threaten NFL defenses at all levels, and should prove to be a red zone weapon early on. The addition of Eric Decker and the presence of Delanie Walker may negate some of the touchdown upside early in his career, but Decker is in his age 30 season with a history of serious injuries and Walker is already 33. While the time missed in training camp is likely to slow his rookie season production, it would not be at all surprising if Davis was the top pass catching option in the Titans offense by season s end.

Eric Decker

It's difficult not to love the Tennessee Titans offense heading into the season, which makes one of the most productive red zone weapons in the league an attractive proposition. While just 30 years old, Decker's injury history is rather brutal and he's coming off a season in which he played just three games before being shut down and subsequently released when the Jets decided to go into tank mode. But setting aside last season, he recorded double digit touchdowns in three of the previous four years, and that's what Tennessee was looking for. The Titans are one of the more impressive young teams in the league, and the acquisition of Decker was about competing now so expect them to utilize him for as long as he can hold up physically. Also note that Decker has been far better throughout his career as the number two option in an offense, which means the Titans will be at their best if rookie Corey Davis get step up from the outset.

Tight Ends

Delanie Walker

As good as Walker has been in recent seasons, the addition of rookie wideout Corey Davis and veteran Eric Decker significantly upgrade what has been one of the league's thinnest receiving corps. A group whose deficiencies have often helped Walker pad his receiving stats, and even worse, when he fell off in yardage production allowed him to balance things out for fantasy owners by coming up big in the red zone. But it's unlikely he sees a repeat of last season's target volume in that area of the field with Decker around. At 33 years old we've probably seen Walker's best years already. And while he's still a talented receiver that can make plays all over the field, it would be wise to throttle down expectations going forward. The combination of age and opportunity simply don't look to be working in his favor at this point in his career.
