Titans LT Taylor Lewan (back) is expected to play in Week 15 against the 49ers.

Lewan was injured in the first half of last week's loss. He'll start Sunday, but likely won't be 100 percent. Lewan has missed just one game the last three seasons.
Dec 15 - 6:41 PM

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (knee) has been ruled out for Week 15.

It's not a surprise after Morgan sat out last week and didn't return to practice. The Titans will continue to start Erik Walden in his place.
Dec 15 - 6:30 PM

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

Titans LT Taylor Lewan said he is dealing with back spasms.

Lewan said he woke up with a sore and tight back before being forced from Sunday's game in the second quarter. He does not anticipate it being a long-term issue, but he will get an MRI. Dennis Kelly replaced him at left tackle on Sunday.
Dec 10 - 8:26 PM

Eric Decker hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 56 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

Decker actually led the Titans in receiving on a bad day all around for the offense. Still, he has proven to be a low-upside fantasy option. He can be left on the wire.
Dec 10 - 8:06 PM

Corey Davis hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 29 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

Davis' first grab was a 22-yarder in the two-minute drill to help set up a field goal attempt, but that was about it for the rookie. With Rishard Matthews back and Marcus Mariota struggling, Davis is just a bench stash at this point.
Dec 10 - 8:06 PM

Rishard Matthews hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 19 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

Although it did not look like Patrick Peterson was shadowing him, Matthews did not find any success in his first game back from a hamstring injury as Marcus Mariota struggled to move the offense. The entire unit should fare better next week in San Francisco, but Matthews will be just a WR3 for that matchup.
Dec 10 - 8:04 PM

Delanie Walker hauled in 5-of-9 targets for 42 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

As is usually the case, Walker was the most reliable option for Marcus Mariota against Arizona, but even he could not post a good fantasy day in a dreadful performance by the offense. He was knocked out of the game by a big hit on the final drive, but he should be fine to face the 49ers next week. He will remain a solid TE1 in that matchup.
Dec 10 - 7:57 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed 11 times for 34 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

It was another nondescript performance from Murray, whose long run went for nine yards. Murray did run for 66 yards on just 11 carries against the Texans last week, but he has now been held under 50 yards from scrimmage in five of six games. He will get a better matchup next week in San Francisco, but he looks like a touchdown-or-bust FLEX option right now.
Dec 10 - 7:45 PM

Derrick Henry rushed eight times for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

Henry's highlight was a six-yard touchdown in the second quarter where he was able to stiff-arm Patrick Peterson on the edge and dive for the pylon, but that was about it against a tough run defense. Henry will get a better matchup next week in San Francisco, but it will not matter if the offense does not improve. He will be just an upside FLEX play in that matchup.
Dec 10 - 7:41 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

Titans LT Taylor Lewan exited Week 14 against the Cardinals with a back injury.

Lewan was able to stay in a few plays after seemingly tweaking his back, but he was forced to the locker room in the second quarter. He was ruled out after the half. Dennis Kelly replaced him at left tackle.
Dec 10 - 4:53 PM

Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is active for Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Matthews sat out the last two games, but he was never in doubt for this game after getting in full practices Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately, he is returning to a matchup with Patrick Peterson, making him a low-end WR3. Tennessee declared Brandon Weeden, CB Kalan Reed, DB Curtis Riley, OL Corey Levin, Harry Douglas, TE Luke Stocker, and OLB Derrick Morgan (knee) inactive.
Dec 10 - 2:39 PM

Rishard Matthews (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Titans' final injury report for Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Matthews is back after sitting out the last two games with a hamstring injury. Returning to a tough matchup against shutdown corner Patrick Peterson, Matthews should be downgraded to a back-end WR3 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
