Titans placed WR Justin Hunter on injured reserve with a fractured ankle, ending his season.
A colossal flop as a breakout candidate in 2014, Hunter failed to take a step forward with diminished expectations before his year-ending injury this season, managing to catch 22-of-31 targets for 264 yards (12.0 YPR) and one touchdown across nine appearances. He topped 50 yards in one game. Nicknamed "The Cow" by DFS analyst Al Zeidenfeld for his tendency to "graze" and merely occupy space on the field, Hunter lacks a my-ball mentality and doesn't play to his size. The Titans have him under contract for one more year at $1.145 million. Nov 16 - 3:40 PM

Justin Hunter suffered a fractured ankle Week 10 against the Panthers.

He'll under surgery on Monday, and be placed on injured reserve. Hunter was having a more consistent and efficient year in his third campaign, but he never established himself as an important factor in the offense. Hunter finishes with 18 catches for 217 yards and a touchdown, and he now has 64 catches for 1,069 yards and eight scores in 34 career appearances. Owed just $1.144 million in the final year of his rookie deal, Hunter will likely be back to compete for a roster spot next season.

Justin Hunter exited Week 10 against the Panthers with a serious right leg injury.

Hunter was rolled up from behind blocking downfield late in the fourth quarter. The cart came out quickly and Hunter had his right leg in an air cast as he was carted off the field. "It's not good," interim coach Mike Mularkey answered when asked about the injury after the game. Hunter is likely done for the season. He had four catches for 47 yards before being forced from the game.
Nov 15 - 4:01 PM

Justin Hunter caught 3-of-4 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 9 win over the Saints.

Hunter started, but saw fewer targets than Dorial Green-Beckham (10). He scored on an eight-yard touchdown that tied the game late in the fourth quarter. With Green-Beckham clearly outplaying him, Hunter shouldn't be more than the Titans' No. 4 receiver when Kendall Wright returns.
Nov 8 - 5:42 PM

Justin Hunter will start in place of Kendall Wright.

The Titans talked up Dorial Green-Beckham this week, but Hunter will continue to start after replacing Harry Douglas the last two weeks. Even with Marcus Mariota starting, Hunter isn't a Week 9 fantasy option.
Nov 8 - 11:49 AM

Justin Hunter secured 2-of-3 targets for 17 yards in Week 8 against the Texans.

Hunter continued to start over Dorial Green-Beckham in place of Harry Douglas. Even with Kendall Wright leaving with a knee injury, he was a non-factor. Hunter wouldn't be more than a low-end WR3 if Wright misses time and Douglas doesn't return next week.
Nov 1 - 5:13 PM

Justin Hunter played 51-of-54 snaps Week 7 against the Falcons.

Dorial Green-Beckham was expected to be the biggest beneficiary of Harry Douglas' (ribs) absence, but he played just 36 snaps and was held without a catch. Hunter managed just two catches on four targets, but it is promising he paced the receivers in snaps. Hunter and the entire passing offense should have a better time next week against the Texans.
Oct 26 - 9:34 AM

Justin Hunter secured 2-of-4 targets for 17 yards in Week 7 against the Falcons.

Hunter was the No. 2 option in place of Harry Douglas. He rotated with Dorial Green-Beckham, who finished without a catch. Hunter dropped a wide-open deep pass in the first quarter. Even if Douglas doesn't return next week, Hunter remains off the fantasy radar.
Oct 25 - 5:11 PM

Justin Hunter secured 3-of-4 targets for 54 yards in the Titans' Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

Hunter rotated with Dorial Green-Beckham, who saw a season-high six targets. Although Hunter has given the Titans' offense a small handful of solid gains this season, he lacks fantasy value as a member of Tennessee's WRBC.
Oct 18 - 4:48 PM

Justin Hunter caught 4-of-6 targets for 38 yards Week 5 against the Bills.

It matched Hunter's season target total heading into the game. More importantly, Hunter saw a couple high-leverage targets in the fourth quarter. Coach Ken Whisenhunt praised Hunter's progress earlier in the week, and Hunter's usage on Sunday showed the coaching staff's growing trust. Hunter could be worth an add in deeper leagues.
Oct 11 - 4:33 PM

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said WR Justin Hunter is "showing some signs of progress."

Whisenhunt says he's been "very impressed with Justin in his progression." Hunter has played 52 percent of the Titans' snaps this season, but he has just four receptions on six targets. With rookie Dorial Green-Beckham coming on strong, Hunter could start to lose snaps, though both young receivers should be playing ahead of Harry Douglas. Hunter does not need to be owned in redraft leagues.
Oct 10 - 10:01 AM

Justin Hunter caught 1-of-2 passes for 29 yards Week 3 against the Colts.

Hunter was not involved in the offense, but his one catch was a spectacular leaping grab at full extension. Hunter has all the upside in the world, but he has never been a consistent contributor. He does not need to be owned in redraft leagues.
Sep 27 - 5:00 PM

Titans WR Justin Hunter secured 2-of-2 targets for 34 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Browns.

A rotational receiver behind Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas, Hunter is sharing time with Dorial Green-Beckham on obvious passing downs. Hunter is not worth owning, let alone using, in re-draft fantasy leagues.
Sep 20 - 5:07 PM

Justin Hunter has been found not guilty of assault and battery charges related to a July 3 bar brawl.

It's possible he'll avoid league discipline, but that's far from a given when it comes to the long arm of commissioner Roger Goodell. Hunter played 34-of-59 snaps in Sunday's opener, but was targeted only twice by Marcus Mariota. It's hard to see his path to WR4 status.
Sep 15 - 2:17 PM

Titans WR Justin Hunter is expected to play in Thursday's preseason finale.

It's confirmation that he's nowhere near the first-team offense. Hunter's roster spot doesn't appear to be in danger, but he's not going to be a factor in the Titans' offense any time soon.
