The Titans did not activate RB Derrick Henry (foot) from IR on Saturday, which means he won't play in Sunday's finale against the Texans. That locks in D'Onta Foreman as the lead back in a high-upside matchup. Henry appears on track to return for the playoffs. If Tennessee beats Houston, the Titans will get a 1st-round bye.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (foot) has been designated to return from IR. That means he'll be back at practice this week. We'd be surprised if Henry played vs. the Texans on Sunday, but he seems to be on track to return for the playoffs. He's now 9.5 weeks removed from suffering a Jones Fracture to his right foot.

Titans WR Julio Jones has been activated from the COVID list. He should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Texans, which Tennessee needs to win to lock up the AFC's #1 seed. Jones, of course, can't be trusted in fantasy lineups. He's topped 59 yards just once all season.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (calf) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He missed Thursday’s practice but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown is safe to get into fantasy lineups for Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins.

Titans WR A.J. Brown was added to the injury report with a calf and did not practice on Thursday. "All indications are it’s more precautionary than anything and he’s on track to play Sunday," NFL Network's Mike Garafolo tweeted. Brown can stay penciled into Week 17 fantasy lineups for now, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

The Titans have placed WR Julio Jones and WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine on the COVID list. We'll see whether either guy can make it back for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but neither should be in your Week 17 fantasy football plans. Tennessee also placed EDGE Bud Dupree on the list Monday. We'll see whether any more Titans get added through the week.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (chest) has been activated from IR and will play vs. the 49ers tonight. He's been out since Week 11 but had no setbacks in practice this week, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's unclear exactly how big a role Brown will play tonight, but he obviously brings plenty of upside. See exactly where Brown sits in the Week 16 WR Rankings.

After leaving Sunday's game against the Steelers with a hamstring and then missing practice Monday and Tuesday, Titans WR Julio Jones put in a full workout Wednesday and heads into Thursday's game with no injury status. He certainly doesn't make for a comfy play after the way his previous appearance unfolded, but Jones will at least be available for fantasy football lineups.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (chest) is trending toward returning for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He's looking pretty good," Rapoport added. "If all checks out well in practice, if it continues to head in this direction, we probably are gonna see Brown on the field" on Thursday. Tennessee desperately needs Brown back with WR Julio Jones likely out again with more hamstring trouble. Brown would come with more risk than usual in his first action since Week 11 -- but he'd also bring huge upside to fantasy lineups.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (chest) has been designated to return from IR. He's eligible to practice this week and be activated for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers. He's still not guaranteed to be ready for that one, but we're tentatively expecting him to be out there. Brown would be a risky-but-high-upside fantasy play in his first action since Week 11.

Titans WR Julio Jones is out for the rest of Sunday's game vs. the Steelers with a hamstring injury. Jones, of course, has battled hamstring trouble all year. He finishes this one catch-less on 1 target.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. He’s certainly not the safest fantasy play in his first action since Week 9. But Jones also brings exciting upside with a chance to hog targets in today’s plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that rehab is going well for Titans RB Derrick Henry, who is expected to return for the NFL playoffs. He adds that Henry might be available for Week 18 if Tennessee hits a must-win situation. That expected timetable indicates that fantasy owners who had been keeping Henry in a non-IR spot on redraft rosters -- or even in an IR spot, if you want to stash someone else there -- can go ahead and dump him for a usable option.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) has been activated from IR, setting him up to play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday. Jones has been out since Week 9 and been bothered by hamstring trouble almost all season, so he carries plenty of risk in Week 14 fantasy lineups. But he also has a chance to dominate Titans targets with WR A.J. Brown out.

The Titans on Tuesday activated S Kevin Byard from the COVID list, which means he'll be ready for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The Titans have designated WR Julio Jones to return from IR. That means he can practice with the team this week, though it doesn't necessarily mean he'll be back on the active roster for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. We'll watch to see whether Jones takes that final step in time for Week 14 fantasy lineups. Jones has been out since Week 9 with the latest iteration of his bothersome hamstring issue. When he does return, he'll find a Tennessee offense in desperate need of WR help. That should boost the veteran's target outlook.

Titans S Kevin Byard landed on the COVID list Monday. Fortunately for him, the Tennessee defense and IDP owners, the Titans get a bye this week. We'll see whether Byard's situation threatens his Week 14 availability.

11:31am EST 11/28/21

Titans TE Geoff Swaim (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. He’s been Tennessee’s most productive TE lately but would be a desperation fantasy play.

The Titans have placed WR A.J. Brown on IR for his chest injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's not expected to end his season, so we should see him back at some point in December. But the earliest he can return is Week 16. Tennessee has its bye next week. That means Brown will -- at best -- make it back for the final 2 weeks of most fantasy leagues' seasons. If you play in a league with tight roster restrictions, Brown might be a drop candidate. Julio Jones will be eligible to come off IR after the bye. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers will lead the group this week, with Marcus Johnson out.

The Titans have ruled LBs David Long and Rashaan Evans out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. That leaves Jayon Brown and Monty Rice as the starters, with Brown the top choice for IDP lineups.
