Titans LT Taylor Lewan will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury that knocked him out of Monday night's loss to the Bils. That's a significant blow for the Tennessee O-line, which negatively impacts RB Derrick Henry and the pass protection for QB Ryan Tannehill. We'd recommend shopping Henry after his next good fantasy outing.

Titans WR Kyle Phillips (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. Robert Woods, Treylon Burks and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine will operate as Tennessee's top 3 WRs in that one.

Titans RB Dontrell Hilliard (hamstring) practiced all week and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll be back in a passing-down role vs. the Raiders on Sunday but isn't a viable fantasy play.

The Titans have ruled EDGE Bud Dupree (hip) out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. LB Zach Cunningham is questionable with a knee injury he suffered Thursday. That kept him off the field Friday. Neither should have factored significantly into your IDP plans. We'll check Cunningham's status Sunday.

Rookie WR Treylon Burks led the Titans with 6 targets in Monday night's loss to the Bills, catching 4 of them for a team-high 47 yards. He climbed to 3rd among Tennessee wideouts in playing time, 1 spot higher than Week 1. Fellow rookie WR Kyle Philips sank to 4th, playing just 23% of offensive snaps and drawing only 1 target. WR Robert Woods caught 4 of his 5 looks for 39 yards. TE Austin Hooper and WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine drew 4 targets apiece but managed only 1 reception each.

Titans RB Derrick Henry ran for just 25 yards on 13 carries in Monday night's lopsided loss at Buffalo. He did, at least, punch in a 1st quarter TD to salvage some value. But the Bills thoroughly dominated the contest, making it tough conditions for the Tennessee run game. A Week 3 home date with the Raiders should bring a softer defense. We'll see whether Henry can capitalize.

Titans WR Kyle Phillips (shoulder) is active for tonight's game vs. the Bills. The rookie got in just 2 limited practices this week but is healthy enough to suit up for this one.

Titans WR Kyle Phillips (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Bills. He got in just 2 limited practices this week. The rookie had an encouraging debut last week but shouldn't be in your fantasy plans yet, especially with this shoulder issue.

The Titans have ruled RB Dontrell Hilliard (hamstring) out for Monday night's game against the Bills. That should position rookie Hassan Haskins as the #2 RB, though Trenton Cannon and Julius Chestnut could factor in as well. None is likely to get enough touches to be fantasy relevant.

Titans RB Dontrell Hilliard (hamstring) has yet to practice this week. We’ll see if he’s able to get out there on Saturday and how he’s listed on the final injury report for Monday night’s game vs. the Bills. Hilliard’s absence might mean a few extra passing-down snaps for RB Derrick Henry.

Titans TE Austin Hooper trailed teammate Geoff Swaim in both snaps (69% vs. 62%) and targets (4-2) in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Swaim turned his 4 looks into a 3-19 receiving line, with Hooper catching just 1 ball for 6 yards. Rookie TE Chig Okonkwo added 1 catch for 11 yards and a carry for minus-4 while playing 15% of snaps. This looks like a committee situation to avoid as much as possible in fantasy football lineups.

Titans WR Treylon Burks played the 4th most snaps among Tennessee wideouts in Sunday's loss to the Giants. At 37% playing time, he trailed Robert Woods (71%), Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (68%) and fellow rookie Kyle Philips (48%). Burks saw nice involvement after a less-than-stellar preseason, though, finishing 2nd on the team in targets (5). The 1st-round pick caught 3 of those for 55 yards. He saw his 1st action on the team's initial possession. And the 2 incomplete passes thrown Burks' way were an end-zone target and a deep look that could have drawn a defensive PI call. Burks will still make for an iffy option in Week 2 fantasy lineups, but it was an encouraging start. Philips led the team in targets (9), receptions (6) and receiving yards (66). Woods and Westbrook-Ikhine each caught just 1 ball for 13 yards among 2 targets apiece.

Titans RB Derrick Henry got the carries expected (21) in Sunday's narrow loss to the Giants but managed just 82 yards (3.9 per rush) for a lackluster fantasy outing. He added 0 catches on just 1 target and watched RB Dontrell Hilliard score both of Tennesssee's TDs. Hilliard found the end zone on receptions of 7 and 23 yards as part of a 3-61 receiving line on 4 targets. He added just 2 carries. No other Titans RB touched the ball.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Titans EDGE Harold Landry suffered an ACL tear in Wednesday's practice. That would obviously end the season for Tennessee's top pass-rusher, an especially big blow for that defense. Landry had ranked inside the top 10 D-linemen in our IDP rankings, where he carries that designation.

The Titans are releasing QB Logan Woodside. That leaves rookie Malik Willis as the only other QB on the roster besides Ryan Tannehill. We'll see about any other moves, but it looks like the rookie will hit the season as Tannehill's backup. That puts him 1 injury away from being interesting for fantasy.

The Chiefs are releasing WR Josh Gordon, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Gordon, now 31, remains well off the redraft radar and is cuttable from dynasty rosters.

Titans WR Treylon Burks injured his wrist in Saturday night's preseason finale vs. the Cardinals. The team deemed him questionable to return, which suggests it's not a significant injury. We'll update Burks' status when we know more. It's just another bump in what's been a rocky offseason for the rookie. He won't be an early-season fantasy option but still possesses enough longer-team upside to stash on benches.

Update: Burks returned to the game, scoring a TD late in the 2nd quarter.

Titans WR Treylon Burks left Wednesday's practice early and then didn't participate Thursday. We haven't seen any report of a specific injury, and he was on an exercise bike during Thursday's practice, according to Kayla Anderson of WKRN-TV in Nashville. We'll watch for something official on this front. Burks carries plenty of risk (but still upside talent) in fantasy football drafts right now.

The Titans opened eyes by starting undrafted free agent RB Julius Chestnut over 4th-round rookie RB Hassan Haskins in the 1st preseason game. On Saturday night, though, Haskins got into the game 1st. RB Dontrell Hilliard started (after sitting out the preseason opener as a healthy scratch) and got the only RB touch on Tennessee's 1st drive. Then Haskins took the field for the 2nd and 3rd possessions, with Chestnut entering for the 4th. The Titans are probably still sorting out the RB depth chart behind Derrick Henry and Hilliard. We wouldn't recommend prioritizing either rookie in the handcuff range of fantasy football drafts.

After some positive buzz at the start of training camp, Titans WR Treylon Burks is heading in the wrong direction again. He was buried in the pecking order in the preseason opener and didn't play particularly well. “Just being able to take the progress — some of the improvements that we saw in practice, and carry them over into the game. I don’t think that happened enough," HC Mike Vrabel said afterward. "Treylon will have to come out here and have a good week.” Burks then missed some reps in Wednesday's joint practice with the Bucs. It's looking like we won't be able to trust the rookie in fantasy lineups early in the season. There's still longer-term upside here, but Burks shouldn't be considered more than a WR4 at this point.
