Jason McCourty Fantasy Football News 2017

The Titans this week dumped veteran CB Jason McCourty. The 29-year-old (30 in October) spent 8 seasons in Tennessee but lost 16 games to injury over the past 2 years. He's likely to find a new landing spot fairly easily in a league always hungry for solid CBs. We'll see whether that new home keeps McCourty in a full-time role and supports his consistent IDP value.

The Titans have ruled CB Jason McCourty (chest, shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. That can only help the fantasy outlook for QB Blake Bortles and the rest of the Jacksonville passing offense against an already soft secondary. Of course, if you were planning to use the Tennessee D in fantasy, you were doing so because of the matchup rather than the Titans' talent. So McCourty's absence shouldn't affect your outlook too much. It does bring the floor down a bit.

The Titans on Monday released starting CB Perrish Cox. The move comes less than a week after HC Mike Mularkey gave the dreaded vote of confidence amid questions over whether Cox's poor play might get him demoted. Tennessee promoted rookie CB Kalan Reed from the practice squad, but Antwon Blake and LeShaun Sims look like the top candidates to join Jason McCourty and Brice McCain among the top 3 at the position. The Titans rotated Sims in with Cox on Sunday. McCourty was limited to just 42% of the snaps at Chicago while dealing with a knee injury. According to ESPN's Paul Kuharsky, McCourty said after the game he thinks it's "just a little bone bruise."

Titans CB Jason McCourty will need another surgery on his groin and is headed for IR, according to Jim Wyatt of the team website. McCourty had his start to the season delayed by sports hernia surgery that knocked him out for nearly all of training camp and the preseason as well. He has missed the past 2 games with groin trouble. Perrish Cox, Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Coty Sensabaugh should operate as the Titans' top 3 CBs the rest of the way. Cox missed Sunday's loss to the Panthers with a hamstring injury.

Titans CB Perrish Cox (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Panthers. He joins CB Jason McCourty (groin) on the inactive list. That leaves Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Coty Sensabaugh starting for Tennessee. Neither makes for a particularly attractive IDP option.

Titans CB Jason McCourty will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday against the Panthers because of his injured groin. That's been the issue with him since training camp, making McCourty droppable in average-sized to shallow IDP leagues for more immediate help.

The Titans have ruled CB Jason McCourty out for today's game against the Saints because of his injured groin. That area has been an issue since the preseason and threatens his usability for the weeks ahead in your IDP league.

Titans CB Jason McCourty is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints because of a groin injury that has yet to get out of his way since costing him the whole preseason. The Tennessean reports that he plans to test it Saturday after missing practice all week. We'll see how that goes, but even an active McCourty would carry plenty of risk for your IDP lineup.

The Titans will have CB Jason McCourty (hamstring) and S Michael Griffin (knee) in the lineup today against the Texans. Griffin was probable and expected to play. McCourty had been questionable. The hammy still makes him a risk, but you can use him as you normally would in your IDP league.

Titans CB Jason McCourty is inactive once again for Week 3. He returned to practice this week for the 1st time since August groin surgery but is apparently not yet ready for game action. We'll keep an eye on his role heading into Week 4.

Titans CB Jason McCourty is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts after returning to practice this week. McCourty missed nearly all of training camp following groin surgery but returned to practice Wednesday and put in a full workout Friday. Even if he's ready to play Sunday, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Titans limit his playing time a bit. McCourty will make for a risky IDP start right away. But his return to the field is good for Tennessee's defense and fantasy owners. A healthy McCourty ranks among the most consistent fantasy factors at his position.

Titans HC Ken Whisenhunt announced Monday that CB Jason McCourty has had surgery to repair a groin injury that has kept him out since Aug. 6. “It just wasn’t responding as quickly as we would’ve liked, so he had that surgery done and it went very well,” Whisenhunt said, according to The Associated Press. “And now it’s just a process of rehab. I don’t know the exact time of rehab, but I’m not ruling him out for the first game." McCourty's greatest asset as an IDP selection is his relative safety at a highly volatile position. This injury chips away at that and makes him less attractive for your fantasy football draft.

Titans CB Jason McCourty is active for the Week 3 game against the Bengals.  A groin injury limited him in practice all week and will add some risk to his IDP profile today.  We'd opt for someone else if you have a similarly valued option available.

Titans CB Jason McCourty has been cleared to face the Colts in Week 15. He missed Sunday's loss to the Saints after suffering a concussion the week before. His return will decrease the snaps for Alterraun Verner and push Chris Hawkins back into a minor role.

12:07pm EST 12/11/11

Titans CB Jason McCourty (concussion) is inactive for today's game against the Saints.  He hasn't passed his baseline tests.  CB Alterraun Verner will start in McCourty's place.

Titans LCB Jason McCourty is officially questionable for Sunday's game against New Orleans. HC Mike Munchak said he'll be a game-time decision and must be cleared by an independent doctor. McCourty has said he was symptom-free all week and never experienced dizziness. We'd still bet against him playing, but it's possible he'll be active. Alterraun Verner and Chris Hawkins would see more snaps in McCourty's absence.

Titans CB Jason McCourty left the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over Buffalo with a concussion. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports that HC Mike Munchak said after the game, "We're not sure what degree (concussion), but he got his bell rung pretty good and we'll have to see how he is." That sure makes us think McCourty will miss at least a week. If he does, Alterraun Verner should be in for a start. Verner was a top-15 fantasy DB as a rookie last year, despite starting just 12 games. If McCourty is out, Verner will become an instant fantasy sleeper in a matchup with the Saints.

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean says "the bet here is Jason McCourty over Alterraun Verner" to start at CB opposite Cortland Finnegan. McCourty has been atop the depth chart since its first release. Wyatt says his "fast and physical" combo fits what DC Jerry Gray is seeking. (As opposed to slow, tentative cover men, we assume.) In most cases, a team's 3rd CB spends so much time on the field that the starter designation doesn't matter a ton. McCourty opened last year as a starter before getting hurt and passed by Verner. The rookie turned in a top-15 fantasy DB season, while McCourty tallied 47 total tackles in 12 games. Verner's stock has to fall if Wyatt's prediction comes true. McCourty isn't likely to match Verner's 2010 numbers.

Titans #2 CB Jason McCourty is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing forearm surgery.  He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Alterraun Verner.  Tennessee was alraedy struggled for depth in the secondary, and this certainly won't help.  #2 and #3 WRs will continue to be nice plays against this defense.
