Jeremy McNichols Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots. That leaves Tennessee’s backfield to D’Onta Foreman and Dontrelle Hilliard. Foreman figures to lead in carries, with Hilliard handling most of the passing downs. Neither is an exciting fantasy play vs. a tough New England defense.

The Titans released RB Adrian Peterson. This could be the end of the road for the 36-year-old, who averaged just 3.0 yards on 27 attempts over the past 3 weeks. Tennessee will move forward with RBs D'Onta Foreman, Dontrelle Hilliard and Jeremy McNichols for as long as Derrick Henry is out.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. That turns Tennessee’s backfield from a 3-man to a 2-man committee. McNichols averaged 5.5 carries and 3 targets over the past 2 weeks, so his absence is a slight boost to RBs D’Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (concussion) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's now looking unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. McNichols has averaged 5.5 carries and 3 targets in 2 games without RB Derrick Henry, so his absence would be a slight boost for RBs D'Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols missed Wednesday's practice and is on the injury report with a concussion. It's the first we've heard of it but has McNichols in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Texans. His absence would turn a 3-man backfield into a 2-man backfield with D'Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson. McNichols has totaled 11 carries and 6 targets with RB Derrick Henry out the past 2 weeks.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Adrian Peterson is expected to be the Titans' lead back vs. the Rams tonight. Pelissero throws out a projection of "upwards of 15 touches" for Peterson. We're curious to see exactly what this Henry-less backfield looks like, with Jeremy McNichols and D'Onta Foreman also in the mix. We'd still consider Peterson just a RB3 or flex play for Week 9.

The Titans promoted RB D'Onta Foreman to the active roster. He signed to the practice squad on Tuesday, so he must have had a good week of practice. Foreman joins Jeremy McNichols and Adrian Peterson in Tennessee's backfield for Sunday night's game vs. the Rams.

The Titans are signing RB Adrian Peterson, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Peterson will start on the practice squad but figures to be elevated quickly, likely before Sunday night's game vs. the Rams. Peterson is 36 now and managed just 3.9 yards per carry on 156 attempts for the Lions last year. He ranked 43rd in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades among 47 RBs with 100+ carries. That said, Peterson might be the favorite to lead the Titans in carries the rest of the way. His primary competition will come from RB Jeremy McNichols, who's listed at 205 lbs. and has yet to top 11 carries in an NFL game. We'll see exactly how the split shakes out. McNichols does figure to handle most of the passing-down work, though, which caps Peterson's fantasy ceiling.

Titans RB Derrick Henry suffered a "potentially" season-ending foot injury in yesterday's win over the Colts, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Henry is undergoing an MRI today to determine the full extent of the damage," Schefter adds. We'll update Henry's status as soon as we know more, but this injury obviously has major fantasy implications. Tennessee only has RBs Jeremy McNichols and Dontrell Hilliard behind Henry on the depth chart right now. RB Mekhi Sargent is on the practice squad. None of those guys are fit to handle anywhere close to Henry's volume. The Titans could add a RB before Tuesday's trade deadline. But we'll likely see them shift significantly toward the pass for as long as Henry is sidelined. It's good news for QB Ryan Tannehill and WR A.J. Brown.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Bills. He didn't practice on Friday or Saturday and was listed as questionable, so it's unclear if he's able to play his usual change-of-pace role behind RB Derrick Henry.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Bills. He was limited in Thursday's practice but sidelined on Friday and Saturday. McNichols' absence would open the door for RB Darrynton Evans to step into Tennessee's change-of-pace role.

The Titans designated RB Darryton Evans (knee) off IR. He's eligible to play this weekend, although it's unclear if he'll be ready. When healthy, Evans should take over the change-of-pace role from RB Jeremy McNichols. Evans still looks like just a fantasy handcuff but is worth a stash in deeper leagues.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill has been activated from the COVID list. He should be good to go for next Sunday's opener vs. the Cardinals. RB Jeremy McNichols was also activated from the COVID list and will join Mekhi Sargent behind Derrick Henry on the depth chart.

Titans RB Darrynton Evans (knee) has been placed on IR. He'll miss at least the first 3 games of the season. With Evans out and RB Jeremy McNichols on the COVID list, Mekhi Sargent is currently Tennessee's #2 RB.

Titans RB Darrynton Evans left Friday night's preseason game after a non-contact knee injury in the 1st quarter. Tennessee deemed him questionable to return, which could be a good signal on the injury's severity. We'll keep an eye out for updates, though. Jeremy McNichols stepped in after Evans left.

The Titans signed former Falcons RB Brian Hill to a 1-year deal. Hill, a 2017 5th-round pick, averaged 4.7 YPC last year on a career-high 100 attempts. He’ll battle Darrynton Evans and Jeremy McNichols for the #2 spot behind Derrick Henry. A Henry injury would almost certainly result in a timeshare, though.
