Rishard Matthews was added to the Titans' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a hamstring issue.

Mid-week additions are never welcome, but for now, there's no reason to sweat Matthews' Week 12 status. That could change if he's downgraded to "DNP" on Friday. Owners should keep Matthews penciled in while having a back-up plan in mind.

Titans WR Harry Douglas (knee, injured reserve) has resumed practicing.

At the risk of sounding flip, we had mostly forgotten Douglas was still on the TItans. Sidelined since final cuts, Douglas could apparently be activated as soon as this week. We dearly hope he doesn't take any targets away from better players Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis and Eric Decker.
Nov 20 - 1:50 PM

Eric Decker caught 3-of-3 targets for 37 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

Decker has just five grabs for 56 yards over his past two games and has been out-targeted 17-6 by Corey Davis in the process. With Davis seizing control of one of the Titans' top two jobs at receiver, Decker has tumbled from fantasy consideration.
Nov 17 - 12:26 AM

Derrick Henry rushed seven times for 32 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

Henry wasn't targeted in the passing game. Henry was running circles around a decrepit-looking DeMarco Murray this evening, but the Titans refused to get him the ball. Murray "generated" 10 yards on eight carries and out-snapped Henry 52-16 (per Pro Football Focus). It was frankly baffling usage on the Titans' behalf. Murray was killing drives. Despite his prolonged struggles, there is zero indication the Titans will consider going away from Murray in Week 12.

Delanie Walker caught 6-of-8 targets for 92 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

The 92 yards were a new season high, but it was one of Walker's missed connections he'll be thinking about between now and Week 12. All alone in the end zone after running a great route, Walker committed one of the worst drops you will ever see in the NFL. It was a gimme touchdown, one that would have been Walker's first of the season through the air (he has a rushing score). Having now cleared 60 yards in four straight games, Walker will remain a high-end TE1 for Week 12 against the Colts.
Nov 17 - 12:19 AM

Corey Davis caught 3-of-7 targets for 27 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

Davis now has 17 targets over his past two games but hasn't cleared 50 yards since Week 1. Tonight, he may have quit on his route on one of Marcus Mariota's four interceptions. It was a play he'll spend 10 days dissecting on film before next week's game against the Colts. A playmaker who is being funneled targets, Davis is in the WR4 mix.
Nov 17 - 12:16 AM

Rishard Matthews caught 5-of-6 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

The 100-yard game was Matthews' first of the season, while the touchdown was his third. It was a 75-yarder on the Titans' opening drive of the second half. With the help of a play fake, Matthews ran right by Coty Sensabaugh before staving off some tackle attempts on his way to the end zone. Despite the big night, Matthews was actually out-targeted 7-6 by Corey Davis. Davis' continued emergence as a factor has lowered both Matthews' floor and ceiling to that of a low-end WR3. He does have an attackable Week 12 matchup in the Colts.
Nov 17 - 12:06 AM

DeMarco Murray rushed eight times for 10 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers, adding five receptions for 37 additional yards.

Murray is a warrior who has been playing hurt for much of 2017, but he was killing drives this evening. He entered halftime with six carries for three yards. Murray couldn't beat first contact and was having serious trouble moving side to side with the ball in his hands. He's now averaged fewer than 3.3 yards per carry in five straight games and is down to a 3.78 YPC on the season. The Titans need to think long and hard about making Derrick Henry the leader of their backfield. There's been zero indication it's something they're considering. Murray will be a low-end RB2 for Week 12 against the Colts.
Nov 17 - 12:01 AM

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

Steelers declared OLB Kevin Dodd, QB Brandon Weeden, DL David King, WR Darius Jennings, CB Kalan Reed, CB Curtis Riley and OL Corey Levin inactive for Week 11 against the Steelers.

It's a quiet list for this time of year. 2016 second-rounder Dodd has been active just three times this season.
Nov 16 - 7:14 PM

Delanie Walker (wrist) has been removed from the Week 11 injury report and will play Thursday night against the Steelers.

Marcus Mariota (shoulder, ankle) was also taken off the injury report and will start, as expected. Walker gets a real tough draw against a strong defense and needs to be dropped down the ranks to borderline TE1/2 status.
Nov 15 - 2:12 PM

Delanie Walker is dealing with a wrist injury, but he is expected to play on Thursday night against the Steelers.

He was listed as "limited" on Monday's practice report. Coach Mike Mularkey did indicate Walker is over his previous ankle injury. Walker has strung together three straight 60-plus-yard games, but he has frustrated in fantasy with no touchdowns. Pittsburgh has been stingy against tight ends.
Nov 13 - 2:24 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

Rishard Matthews hauled in 5-of-7 targets for 50 yards in the Titans' Week 10 win over the Bengals.

It was a solid day for Matthews, but it could have been much better had he not dropped what would have been a sure touchdown. More concerning than the drop, however, is the fact Matthews finished third on the team in targets behind both Delanie Walker and rookie Corey Davis, who also matched Matthews in snaps. The veteran was more efficient and productive with his work, but Matthews' days as the clear No. 1 receiver are finished.
Nov 13 - 7:31 AM

Delanie Walker delivered six catches for 63 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Titans’ Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Walker was second on the team in targets with nine, re-assuming his role as Mariota's security blanket. He also made a few great catches on passes over the middle in key situations. Returning to his usual amount of snaps, Walker will be a TE1 next week against the Steelers.
