The Titans have hired Ran Carthon as their GM. Carthon has been the 49ers' director of player personnel the past 6 years and held the same role with the Rams the previous 5 years. At the top of his to-do list this offseason will be figuring out what to do at QB, where 34-year-old Ryan Tannehill carries a $36.6 million 2023 cap hit and Malik Willis is coming off an ugly rookie campaign.

The Titans fired OC Todd Downing. He deployed slow-faced, run-heavy offenses the past 2 seasons. Tennessee sunk from 17th in total yards and 15th in points in 2021 to 30th and 28th this past year. We'll see who the Titans tab to run the offense going forward -- and if that guy will open up the passing game a bit. RB Derrick Henry turned 29 last week, and Tennessee has a couple of intriguing, young talents in WR Treylon Burks and TE Chig Okonkwo.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (groin) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Jaguars. He was added to the injury report on Wednesday and then didn’t practice on Thursday, so it’s tough to believe he’s at 100% for this one. Burks isn't a recommended play outside of Saturday and 1-game DFS contests.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (groin) did not practice on Thursday and carries a questionable injury designation ahead of Week 18 vs. the Jaguars. With QB Joshua Dobbs under center last week, the rookie wideout tallied 4 receptions on 8 targets for 66 yards. Not bad production, all things considered. The Jaguars' defense also ranks as the 10th-best matchup for WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season. That said, it's tough to trust Burks too much in a matchup where the Titans are likely to lean heavily on RB Derrick Henry. Burks is a WR4/deep league flex consideration in Week 18.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (groin) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. We'll see if the rookie is able to work up to full participation tomorrow. Check back tomorrow for further clarity surrounding Burks' availability for Week 18 vs. the Jaguars on Saturday.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hip) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice. It's confirmation that he'll be ready for roll for Saturday's must-win game vs. the Jaguars.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel named QB Joshua Dobbs his starter for this weekend's must-win game vs. the Jaguars. It was the only logical move after Dobbs looked like a functional NFL QB in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys -- something that hasn't been said about QB Malik Willis this season. Of course, the Titans will ride RB Derrick Henry as far as he can take them this Sunday.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel declined to name a starting QB for Week 18 after Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys. Joshua Dobbs looked like a functional NFL QB for most of that game, finishing 20-of-39 for 232 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. "It was a great opportunity to evaluate Josh, and we'll make a decision going forward," Vrabel said. "I thought he did some good things, and obviously a couple of throws he'd like to have back. We'll see where things are here in a couple of days." Dobbs threw for just 2 fewer yards against Dallas than QB Malik Willis TOTALED in his 3 starts. We're guessing the Titans roll with Dobbs in next weekend's must-win game vs. the Jaguars, but we'll keep you updated.

The Titans placed QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) on IR on Thursday. That makes the AFC Championship his earliest possible return this season. We'll see if the Titans roll with QB Malik Willis or QB Joshua Dobbs in next Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jaguars.

As expected, Titans RB Derrick Henry (hip) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Cowboys. He'd be playing if this game meant anything to Tennessee and will be back out there for the finale against Jacksonville. Rookie Hassan Haskins is expected to operate as Tennessee's lead back tonight but should be considered just a low-upside RB3 in fantasy lineups. The Titans are implied for 13.25 points.

Titans QB Joshua Dobbs will start Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys, according to multiple reports. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that QB Malik Willis is sitting to ensure that he's healthy for next weekend's must-win game vs. the Jaguars. Dobbs joined the Titans off the Lions' practice squad on December 21. This will be his first NFL start. You should stay far away from the Titans passing game in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero has confirmed what we all suspected: that the team "fully" expects RB Derrick Henry to be ready for full use against the Jaguars in Week 18. Henry is doubtful for tonight's game against the Cowboys, listed with a hip issue. But he finished the week with 2 limited practices. He's clearly just being held out of a game that has no bearing on the Titans' playoff hopes. Pelissero added that rookie RB Hassan Haskins is in for a big role and didn't mention RB Julius Chestnut in his report. So Haskins sounds like the guy if you need a Titans runner. We wouldn't go out of our way to target this situation, however, in what Vegas projects to be the lowest-scoring offense of Week 17.

In another clear sign that the Titans are surrendering Thursday night's game to the Cowboys, the team announced Wednesday that basically the entire defense is out or doubtful. DT Jeffery Simmons, S Amani Hooker, EDGE Bud Dupree, LB Dylan Cole and LB Zach Cunningham are out. DL Denico Autry and CB Kristian Fulton are doubtful, which is really just a wishy-washy way of saying "out." LB Monty Rice, CB Roger McCready and S Andrew Adams like just about the only playable pieces for IDP leagues.

The Titans list RB Derrick Henry as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys. He has been listed with a hip issue all week but put in limited practices Tuesday and Wednesday after sitting out Monday. This is clearly a move by the Titans to save up some key players for a Week 18 meeting with the Jaguars that will determine whether they make the playoffs. With Henry out and Dontrell Hilliard already on IR, the Titans will turn to Hassan Haskins and Julius Chestnut. With 11 and 5 carries for the season, respectively -- 7 and 2 targets -- neither is a strong bet to grab the clear backfield lead. Try to avoid this offense altogether in your Week 17 fantasy football lineups.

Tennessee's Week 18 game against the Jaguars will determine the AFC South champion. The Titans can't get a Wild Card spot, which makes their game vs. the Cowboys on Thursday night meaningless. Jim Wyatt of the team's official website believe the Titans will hold out some starters out of that one. The big question, of course, is whether that will include RB Derrick Henry. We'll keep you updated on the situation. If Henry is held out, rookie Hassan Haskins would step in as Tennessee's lead back and enter the RB3/Flex conversation.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hip) was listed as a non-participant at practice on Monday. The Titans are set to face the Cowboys on Thursday night in Week 16. With the quick turnaround, it'll be essential to see Henry log some participation soon. However, this injury didn't seem to affect the veteran on Saturday vs. the Texans. That certainly bodes well for his Week 17 availability. We'll keep an eye on this as we get closer to Thursday.

Titans LB Zach Cunningham came off IR to start Saturday's game against the Texans, but he left the game before halftime with more elbow trouble. Don't bet on the veteran being a factor for IDP lineups in Week 17. Monty Rice led Tennessee LBs with 91% playing time against Houston. Undrafted rookie Jack Gibbons also got 72% playing time, in a beat-up corps that previously lost LBs David Long and Dylan Cole.

Titans QB Malik Willis went 14-of-23 passing in Saturday's loss to the Texans, tallying just 99 yards (4.3 per attempt) with 0 TDs and 2 INTs. WR Robert Woods was the only Titan with more than 2 receptions, catching all 4 of his targets for 30 yards. Willis will start at least 1 more game Thursday night against the Cowboys.

Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 23 times for 126 yards and a TD in Saturday's loss to the Texans. That marked a disappointing performance vs. his previous 4 meetings with the Texans, each of which found Henry exceeding 210 rushing yards and scoring at least 2 TDs. But it's tough to complain about the big guy averaging 5.5 yards per rush against a defense that knew he was coming the whole time. Henry boosted that by scoring his TD from 48 yards out, meaning that he averaged 3.5 yards on his other 22 attempts. He gets a tougher matchup with the Cowboys on Thursday night of Week 17.

Titans S Amani Hooker (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Texans.
