Rishard Matthews caught 3-of-6 targets for 40 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

Matthews was caught in the wake of a miserable offensive performance versus a Cleveland defense that was missing two starters in the secondary. Matthews leads the Titans in targets and receiving yards on the season, but has had more than four receptions in just two of the opening seven games while hitting 70-yards just twice. Matthews enters the bye week as a WR4 for fantasy rosters.

Delanie Walker needed a crutch to get around in the locker room after suffering a right ankle sprain in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

He had the ankle wrapped in "heavy taping." Asked if Walker will miss time after the game, coach Mike Mularkey replied, "We'll see." ESPN's Cameron Wolfe hinted Walker may be dealing with a high ankle sprain. The Titans have a bye in Week 8, so we may not have a good feel for Walker's timetable for another week.

Derrick Henry carried 13 times for 13 yards with two catches for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

With DeMarco Murray still nursing a hamstring injury, Henry was out-snapped 43-to-30 and out-touched 21-to-15 as he's clearly still second in command for opportunity in the Tennessee backfield. Henry found no room to run all afternoon against a Cleveland defense that has defended the run well all season. He got one opportunity to score on a 4th down carry from the 1-yard line, but was stopped short of the end zone. Henry remains a bench stash only for fantasy leagues as the Titans enter the bye week.

DeMarco Murray rushed 18 times for 59 yards while catching three passes for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

This was the second time on the season that Murray only put in a limited Friday practice and then led the Titans backfield in opportunity. Murray out-snapped Derrick Henry 43-to-30 and out-touched him 21-to-15. Murray wasn't electric against a Cleveland run defense that has been their lone bright spot on the season. Murray had back to back goal line opportunities in the first half in which he was stood up, which could've smoothed out his day for fantasy purposes. With the Titans on bye in Week 8, Murray will get much needed rest for his injured hamstring.

Eric Decker failed to catch a pass on two targets in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

Coming off his best game of the season on Monday Night, Decker was an absolute no show on Sunday versus a Cleveland defense missing Jason McCourty. It was the first time Decker was held without a catch in a game since Week 16, 2011. Decker has just 23 receptions for 226 yards with no touchdowns on the season and has been a top-50 scorer in just one week of the 2017 season. With the Titans on bye next week and Corey Davis getting close to returning, Decker doesn't need to be owned in seasonal leagues.

Delanie Walker reeled in 7-of-10 targets for 63 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

Even with the positive line enhanced in PPR leagues, Walker just missed turning in a big game as Marcus Mariota skipped an easy touchdown pass to him off the ground inn the first half and nearly pulled in another long score in the second half that was broken up. He suffered an ankle injury on his final catch in overtime and was forced to leave the game. With the Titans on bye week in Week 8, monitor his injury.
Oct 22 - 5:35 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

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's Week 7 game versus the Browns.

Murray has been battling a hamstring injury for over two months, but with Derrick Henry continuing to press the veteran, Murray has been playing through the injury. The last time that Murray only put in a limited practice during the week, he out-snapped Henry 48-to-30 versus the Seahawks. With the Titans having a bye week upcoming in Week 8, Tennessee may lighten Murray's workload today, especially if they are able to control this game like we believe they should. Murray is a risky RB3/flex option while Henry is an upside flex option or emergency RB2. Inactive for the Titans are WR Darius Jennings, DB Kalan Reed, S Johnathan Cyprien, OL Corey Levin, WR Corey Davis, OLB Kevin Dodd and DL David King.

Delanie Walker (questionable, calf) will play Week 7 against the Browns.

It's a mild surprise after Walker was downgraded to DNP at Friday's practice. You'd think the Titans would rest some of their walking wounded Sunday against a listless Browns team that has lost 21 of its last 22 games, but Walker and DeMarco Murray (hamstring) will tough it out anyway. Even at less than 100 percent, Walker is a must-start in all formats and a good player to stack with Marcus Mariota in DFS.
Oct 22 - 8:01 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports DeMarco Murray (questionable, hamstring) will play Week 7 against the Browns.

Here we go again. Murray was clearly hobbled against the Colts on Monday night and didn't practice until Friday this week but somehow convinced the coaching staff to let him play. Derrick Henry should lead the backfield with Murray at much less than 100 percent, but that's also what we expected in Week 3 when Murray was a game-time decision and rushed for a season-best 115 yards in a win over the Seahawks. Even in a plus matchup at Cleveland, health and workload concerns make Murray a risky RB3.
Oct 22 - 8:00 AM

Corey Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Davis wasn't an early rule out, but didn't practice all week. He'll use the Week 8 bye to get healthy. Despite coach Mike Mularkey saying he's close, Davis isn't a lock to return in Week 9 against Baltimore.
Oct 20 - 3:14 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) expects to be a game-time decision for Week 7 against the Browns.

"We’ll see how I feel," said Murray, when asked about his status for Week 7. "I’m going to get a good warmup in before the game and see how I feel and then make a decision from there." Murray looked noticeably hobbled against the Colts last week and admitted his hamstring injury has been "very frustrating." Murray would likely work behind Derrick Henry if he suits up Sunday.
Oct 20 - 2:24 PM

Delanie Walker (calf) is questionable for Week 7 against the Browns.

Walker was downgraded to a missed practice after being limited Thursday. He's trending in the wrong direction and looks likely to be rested through Tennessee's Week 8 bye. Jonnu Smith will be a high-upside streamer if Walker sits.
Oct 20 - 1:09 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is questionable for Week 7 against the Browns.

Murray returned to a limited practice Friday after sitting out on both Wednesday and Thursday. He's looked hobbled all year and Tennessee shouldn't need him to beat the winless Browns. Even if Murray plays, Derrick Henry is likely to lead the backfield in Week 7.
Oct 20 - 1:05 PM

Speaking Thursday, Titans coach Mike Mularkey admitted DeMarco Murray (hamstring) isn't guaranteed to play against the Browns.

Earlier this week, Mularkey was all sunshine on his running back's status. Thursday, he was talking contingency plans, saying the team could promote rookie Khalfani Muhammad from the practice squad if Murray doesn't play. It's a tacit admission Murray's status is in doubt. At this point, even if Murray plays, Henry will be the preferred fantasy back. Rotoworld's Week 7 rankings will be updated to reflect that.
