Titans S Johnathan Cyprien is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. He missed practice all week with a lower-back injury. We'd try not to use him in IDP lineups even if he turns up active. We'll have to wait until about 3 p.m. ET Sunday to update his game status.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) isn’t listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He hurt his knee early in last week’s game and has also been playing through hamstring and ankle injuries, HC Mike Mularkey said earlier this week. The injuries have probably at least played a part in his disappointing season. Even in Sunday’s plus matchup against the 49ers, Mariota is just a mid-range QB2.

Titans S Johnathan Cyprien missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, despite playing 97% of the snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. The injury report on the team website lists "hamstring," but The Tennessean reports that he's dealing with a lower-back issue. The hamstring would be more worrisome, given that it cost him 6 games in the 1st half of the season. Either way, we'll keep an eye on his status heading into the weekend.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. He injured his knee early in last week's loss to the Cardinals and is dealing with lingering hamstring and ankle injuries, according to HC Mike Mularkey. None of the ailments will keep Mariota from playing against the 49ers this weekend, but they do make him a shaky fantasy option.

Titans writer Paul Kuharsky reports that QB Marcus Mariota is still dealing with the hamstring injury that he suffered earlier this season, which is complicated by lingering effects from last year's leg fracture. Mariota reportedly might need a "clean-up" procedure on that right ankle after the season. All of this followed word from HC Mike Mularkey that Mariota played through a knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. All the leg issues certainly make it easier to understand Mariota's statistical struggles. He'll carry upside into this weekend's matchup with the Niners, but the health questions keep him out of fantasy-starter territory.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota played through a knee injury that he suffered early in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, HC Mike Mularkey said afterward. It'll be a situation to monitor this coming week, but Mariota should be available for next Sunday's game against the 49ers. He'll be tough to like in fantasy lineups, though, after bombing again today. Mariota has totaled just 493 passing yards and 2 TDs over his last 3 games.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) isn't listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. The hamstring isn't a concern, but Matthews might see Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson when he lines up outside the numbers this weekend. Matthews at least runs about one third of his routes from the slot.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) put in a full practice on Friday and isn't listed on the final Week 14 injury report. It looks like his absences on Wednesday and Thursday were precautionary. Walker is safe to keep locked into fantasy lineups. He's tallied 12+ PPR points in 6 straight games.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played his usual allotment of snaps last weekend, but it looks like there's at least a chance he misses Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) was a full-go in Thursday's practice. He's set to return for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. It's unclear if CB Patrick Peterson will shadow Matthews on the outside, but he should at least avoid Peterson in the slot, where he's run 34% of his routes this season.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He returned to a limited workout last Friday and was seemingly close to playing against the Texans. Barring a setback, Matthews should be ready for this weekend's game against the Cardinals.

Titans CB Logan Ryan suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the Texans. He'll need to progress through the league protocol before returning to the field. Sitting out Week 14 would mean missing the league's top scoring matchup for fantasy DBs in Arizona.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. Corey Davis, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor will again serve as the top 3 WRs in a plus matchup.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans after returning to a limited practice on Friday. HC Mike Mularkey labeled him a game-time decision. We’ll find out Matthews’ status by noon ET on Sunday. He’ll be a risk/reward fantasy play if active at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's not looking like a good bet to suit up for this weekend's game against the Texans. That'd again leave Corey Davis, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor as Tennessee's top 3 WRs.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday. He was reportedly a game-time decision this past Sunday, but this isn't a promising start to his week. We'll see if Matthews can get back on the field on Thursday.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. That leaves Corey Davis as the clear #1 WR — and a high-upside WR3 in fantasy lineups. WR Eric Decker figures to serve as the #2 and is a low-end option in PPR leagues. Rookie Taywan Taylor will serve as Tennessee’s #3 WR.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Colts. He popped up on the injury report on Thursday and then didn't practice on Friday. ESPN's Cameron Wolfe believes Matthews will be a game-time decision. We'll find out his status by noon ET on Sunday, but he'll come with elevated risk if active. If Matthews sits, Corey Davis, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor would serve as Tennessee's top 3 WRs. TE Delanie Walker would also be in for a target boost.

11:11am EST 11/12/17

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He played through this injury last week, posting a 5-71 line on a 62% snap rate. Walker is safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is expected to play against the Bengals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Walker only put in a limited practice on Friday, but there was never much concern about his status after he played through the issue last week. Walker is safe get into fantasy lineups.
