Nate Washington caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Washington's 6/102 Week 15 outburst was due in large part to facing the Jets' invisible secondary. The workmanlike veteran will not be on the DFS radar for next week's finale against the Colts.
Dec 18 - 11:59 PM

Delanie Walker caught 4-of-6 targets for 54 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Walker's knee was not an issue. Walker cost himself a fifth grab by failing to get both feet in bounds when it appeared he should have been able to. That's easy for us to say, of course. Producing like a mid-range TE1, that's what Walker will remain for Week 17 against the Colts. Walker could be an interesting play in DFS leagues if the Colts send out their B Team.
Dec 18 - 11:54 PM

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-5 targets for 73 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Wright had missed each of the Titans' past two games with a hand issue, but looked no worse for the wear in Jacksonville. Wright was shaken up after one of his longer grabs, but was never announced with an injury, and quickly returned. He'll be a WR4 for Week 17 against the Colts.
Dec 18 - 11:52 PM

Leon Washington caught 7-of-7 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's Week 16 loss to the Jaguars, adding four rushes for 11 yards.

With Dexter McCluster (knee) done for the season, Washington was the Titans' change-of-pace back, and easily led the backfield in yards from scrimmage. Amusingly, Washington received a goal-line carry on Tennessee's opening drive. He failed to cash it in, but caught an eight-yard score two plays later. It would go down as the Titans' only touchdown of the night. Despite the nifty performance, Washington won't be on the Week 17 DFS radar.
Dec 18 - 11:40 PM

Shonn Greene rushed seven times for 28 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Greene must have been tuckered out after getting his "revenge" on the Jets last Sunday, as his seven touches were 10 fewer than he received in Week 15. Bishop Sankey again led the Titans' committee. Greene gets to close the book on an(other) uninspiring campaign against the Colts next week.
Dec 18 - 11:38 PM

Bishop Sankey rushed 14 times for 44 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

He added a nine-yard reception. One week after coach Ken Whisenhunt decided to let Shonn Greene get his "revenge" against the Jets, Sankey was reinstalled as the chairman of Tennessee's committee, but was again unimpressive. Sankey showed speed, but no wiggle, running right into defenders and then getting taken down. He averaged a mere 3.1 yards per carry, and has surpassed 4.0 just once in his past 11 games. Sankey has elite measurables, but they've yet to translate to on-field success.
Dec 18 - 11:34 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 24-of-35 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' 21-13, Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Clipboard Jesus came out dropping dimes, going 6-of-6 for 71 yards and a touchdown on the Titans' opening drive. He cooled off considerably thereafter, but still delivered a surprising amount of precision passes into tight spaces. He was hurt by a lack of awareness from both Delanie Walker and Derek Hagan on incompletions that should have gone for big yards. Whitehurst has actually performed reasonably well in spot duty this season, but done nothing to disprove the notion that he's a career backup. He won't be on the fantasy radar for next week's finale against the Colts.
Dec 18 - 11:31 PM

Delanie Walker (knee) is active for Week 16 against the Jaguars.

Walker's injury was never a serious concern. He gets a slight downgrade with Charlie Whitehurst calling the shots at quarterback, but remains a mid-range TE1 for the fantasy finals.
Dec 18 - 7:07 PM

Kendall Wright (hand) is active for Week 16 against the Jaguars.

As is Delanie Walker (knee). It's a nice boost for fill-in quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, and limits Nate Washington's WR3 appeal. Wright isn't wearing any protective gear on his hand, and can be fired up as a WR4. Inactive for the Titans are QB Zach Mettenberger, LT Taylor Lewan, DB Jemea Thomas, LB Zaviar Gooden, LB Dontay Moch, OT Terren Jones and DT Mike Martin.
Dec 18 - 7:01 PM

Titans placed RB Dexter McCluster on injured reserve with a fractured kneecap, ending his season.

WR Rico Richardson was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. One of the crown jewels of the Titans' free-agent class, McCluster closes the book on 2014 having turned 66 touches into just 328 yards. He averaged an anemic 3.3 yards on his 40 carries. Signed through 2016, McCluster will be back to attempt to change the pace next season.
Dec 18 - 2:49 PM

Delanie Walker (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Despite the questionable tag, Walker should be fine for Thursday night. He's a mid-range TE1 against Jacksonville.
Dec 17 - 2:27 PM

Kendall Wright (hand) is listed as questionable for Thursday night against Jacksonville.

Wright was limited in practice this week, putting him on track to play. He doesn't expect to need a cast or splint on his injured hand if he suits up. Wright is a low-end WR3 for Week 16.
Dec 17 - 2:25 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Jaguars and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Predictably, McCluster proved to be yet another terrible free-agent signing by GM Ruston Webster. Yet, the Titans remain committed to Webster running the organization. They'll continue to toil in mediocrity. McCluster inked a three-year, $9 million deal that included $4.5 million guaranteed. He went on to rush 40 times for a measly 131 yards (3.1 YPC) and catch 26 passes for 197 yards (7.6 YPR) and one touchdown. He's set to count $3.35 million against the cap in 2015.
Dec 17 - 11:44 AM

Dexter McCluster (knee) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

The Titans' supposed change-of-pace back is looking doubtful for Thursday's game against the Jaguars. A McCluster absence would mean more run for Leon Washington.
Dec 16 - 3:18 PM

Delanie Walker (knee) was limited in Tuesday's practice.

Walker should be fine for Thursday Night Football, where he'll be a mid-range TE1 against the Jaguars.
