Marcus Mariota completed 23-of-33 passes for 241 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Titans' 25-23, Week 15 loss to the 49ers.
It was the first time in six games Mariota had two touchdowns through the air. It was also just his third start in his past 10 without an interception. Mariota played well, but the Titans ran out of time and plays, something that's been a common theme this season. Their "pace" on offense is molasses slow. It's by design, but caps both Mariota's ceiling and big-play ability. Of course, it hasn't help that Mariota has played genuinely poorly for much of the year. He gets the Rams' hot defense for Week 16. Dec 17 - 7:39 PM

Date:

Marcus Mariota (knee) is practicing in full for Week 15 against the 49ers.

He suffered a minor knee injury in Sunday's loss to Arizona but didn't miss a snap and saw his usual reps when the Titans returned to practice on Wednesday. Mariota has thrown eight interceptions over his last four games and won't be more than a QB2 for the fantasy semifinals, even in a great matchup.
Dec 13 - 5:30 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Monday that Marcus Mariota's knee injury is not serious.

Mariota suffered some sort of mild knee sprain in Sunday's loss to Arizona, but he never missed a snap and is expected to practice on Wednesday. In both fantasy and real life, Mariota has been one of the NFL's biggest 2017 disappointments regardless of injuries. The Titans badly need an influx of fresh-thinking coaching talent, but Mike Mularkey will probably return in 2018 because 8-5 Tennessee has a good won-loss record.
Dec 11 - 4:08 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 16-of-31 passes for 159 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

It was another dreadful performance from the offense and in particular Mariota, who has now failed to top 185 yards in three straight games. His first interception seemed to be just a miscommunication with Rishard Matthews, but he did not even see a dropping linebacker on the second, a turnover which gifted the Cardinals a late field goal. Tennessee is still likely to make the playoffs because of the sorry state of the AFC, but they are going to exit quickly unless the offense improves dramatically. They do have a get-right spot next week in San Francisco.
Dec 10 - 7:03 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 15-of-23 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Texans.

He added three carries for 23 yards and a rushing TD. It was more of the same from Mariota, who was held under 200 yards for the second straight week. Mariota's passing touchdown was a 24-yard strike to Delanie Walker late in the third quarter. The Titans have won their last two games to stay with Jacksonville atop the AFC South. Mariota has a matchup with the Cardinals in Week 14.
Dec 3 - 4:26 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 17-of-25 passes for 184 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Titans' Week 12 win over the Colts.

He managed four yards on three scrambles. This was a tough game to watch, as both quarterbacks stared at the pass rush and refused to challenge downfield. It was also a discouraging game from Mariota, which has become commonplace. He hasn't seemed comfortable in the pocket for most of the year. Mariota will remain in the bounce-back crosshairs against the Texans' weak defense in Week 13.
Nov 26 - 4:17 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 22-of-33 passes for 306 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in the Titans' 40-17, Week 11 loss to the Steelers, adding five rushes for five yards and an additional score.

Tonight was actually one of Mariota's best fantasy efforts of the season, but his interceptions erased any chance the Titans had of springing the road upset. Mariota had previously never thrown more than two picks in a game. The first was a ridiculous air mail on the Titans' opening drive, while two others were awful stare downs. The fourth came on a deflection. Mariota's passing touchdown was a 75-yard beauty to Rishard Matthews, though the receiver deserved much of the credit. The rushing score was Mariota's fourth of the season. Mariota has generated multiple passing touchdowns in just 2-of-9 starts. He has an attackable Week 12 matchup in the Colts.
Nov 16 - 11:52 PM

Marcus Mariota emerged from the Titans' Week 10 win with a sore left (non-throwing) shoulder and "mild" ankle sprain.

These are typical in-game football injuries. Mariota was officially listed as "limited" on Monday's practice report. Coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Mariota will be "good to go" for Thursday Night Football against the Steelers.
Nov 13 - 2:19 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 25-of-44 passes for 264 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Titans' Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Mariota also rushed six times for 51 yards. He started the game strong with plenty of time in the pocket and his receivers got open with ease. Coming out of halftime the Bengals defense made adjustments and racked up multiple sacks in the first few minutes. As he continued to be pressured, Mariota made plays with his legs. The game-winning touchdown came on a dump-off to RB DeMarco Murray. The Titans will have a short week to prepare for the Steelers on Thursday Night.
Nov 12 - 4:45 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey hopes to increase Marcus Mariota's designed runs going forward.

Mariota has only 26 rushing attempts all season, and just six in three games since injuring his hamstring in Week 4. It's made him a far less dynamic option in fantasy, though his hamstring is apparently healed to the point that he can finally resume taking off. Mariota had three rushing scores in four games before getting hurt. Week 10 opponent Cincinnati has allowed the 11th most quarterback rushing yards.
Nov 6 - 2:06 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 19-of-28 passes for 218 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding six yards on three carries Sunday in the Titans’ Week 9 win over the Ravens.

Mariota took three sacks for a loss of 32 yards. He looked healthier than he had in previous weeks, but still didn’t run much. Mariota connected with Rishard Matthews on a 16-yard touchdown strike in the first quarter and later added to his tally by hitting Eric Decker for an 11-yard score with 3:58 remaining in the fourth. He was most successful throwing to tight end Delanie Walker, who pulled in all five of his targets for 71 yards. Mariota was intercepted by Eric Weddle in the fourth quarter on a deep pass intended for Matthews. The 5-3 Titans get Cincinnati at home in Week 10.
Nov 5 - 6:08 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 21-of-34 passes for 203 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

He added eight yards rushing on the ground, but this was a thoroughly disappointing game for the Tennessee passing offense with Cleveland missing Jason McCourty and Jabrill Peppers. Mariota kept everything close to the vest, rarely pushing the ball downfield and missed a wide-open Delanie Walker for a easy touchdown in the first half. Mariota has been a lackluster fantasy asset so far this season and doesn't need to be held through the Titans bye week as he comes back with games against Baltimore and Cincinnati.
Oct 22 - 5:27 PM

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday.

The Titans only had a light workout, but it sounds like Mariota should practice fully all week. He continues to trend up after escaping Monday night's win without a setback. Mariota should have more mobility against the Browns, giving him a higher ceiling for Week 7.
Oct 18 - 4:22 PM

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) escaped Monday night's win over the Colts without setbacks.

Mariota's mobility was noticeably limited, but he played better and better as the game wore on. It was an extremely impressive effort by a player who isn't known for staying confined to the pocket. Mariota offers monster upside for Week 7 against the Browns.
Oct 17 - 5:05 PM

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) said he felt good after Monday night's win over the Colts.

Mariota was clearly limited by his hamstring injury, but it did not stop him from throwing for 306 yards and a touchdown in an important divisional win. Barring a mid-week setback, he should be ready to torch the Browns on Sunday.
