Titans new OC Arthur Smith said RB Derrick Henry will be a "big part of the offense" in 2019. Henry, of course, exploded for 585 rushing yards and 7 scores over the final 4 games this past season. "He has a rare skill set," Smith continued. "Derrick's a home-run hitter. We are taking another step hopefully with him." Smith was an offensive lineman in college and was most recently Tennessee's TEs coach. It sounds like he's planning to deploy a run-leaning offense featuring 2- and even 3-TE sets. It's all good news for Henry and worrisome for QB Marcus Mariota and the Titans' pass-catchers.
The Titans have promoted TEs coach Arthur Smith to OC. Smith has been with Tennessee for 8 years, starting as a defensive assistant before moving to the other side of the ball. The Titans are aiming for continuity from the departed Matt LaFleur's scheme, but Smith is a complete unknown as a play-caller.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He was added on Thursday and limited again on Friday, but the hammy obviously isn’t a major concern. With either a banged-up Marcus Mariota or Blaine Gabbert under center, Davis is an unexciting WR3.
Titans WR Corey Davis was added to the Thursday's injury report as limited with a hamstring. He's dealt with hamstring trouble throughout his first 2 NFL seasons, so this is certainly worth monitoring. We'll get another update on Davis tomorrow.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He put in a full practice on Saturday after being limited on Thursday and Friday. Davis is safe to use as you normally would for Monday night's game against the Cowboys.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) has been limited in practice so far this week. We haven’t heard anything to suggest he’s in danger of missing Monday night’s game against the Cowboys, but Davis does have a history of hamstring trouble. We’ll get another update on his status Saturday afternoon.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) will "try to play" against the Texans today. Mariota is reportedly dealing with a pinched nerve in that elbow and still hasn't regained complete feeling in his fingers. "There is no telling how he’ll respond," Rapoport adds. "That’s why Blaine Gabbert is expected to rotate in." This remains a situation to stay far away from in Week 2 fantasy lineups. And it has Corey Davis looking like a risky WR3 play.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full workout on Friday. The hammy doesn’t seem like a concern, but Tennessee’s QB situation certainly is. Davis is a shaky WR3 for Week 2.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) was limited again in Thursday's practice. He didn't express any concern about his Week 2 status when talking to reporters this morning. We'll get another update tomorrow. Between his hammy and QB Marcus Mariota's elbow, Davis is looking like a risky Week 2 fantasy play.
Titans WR Corey Davis was limited in Wednesday's practice with a hamstring. It's the 1st we've heard of the issue, and there's been nothing to suggest that Davis is in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Texans. But it's certainly worth monitoring after he missed 5 games with a hamstring problem last year.
Titans WR Corey Davis told WKRN-TV on Monday that he "feels good" and expects to play Saturday against the Buccaneers. Davis missed a few days of practice and sat out the preseason opener with an undisclosed injury. He referred to the time away only as "maintenance days" after returning to practice over the weekend. We'll keep an eye out for further details. But if Davis stays on the field, then we won't worry too much. It's worth noting that whenever the 2nd-year wideout finally appears in an exhibition, it'll be his 1st as a pro. Davis missed the whole preseason as a rookie while dealing with nagging hamstring trouble.
The Titans are "counting on [WR Corey] Davis to make a big leap in Year 2," according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official website. Wyatt called Davis "one of the stars during the early portion of offseason work," noting that he "looked smooth during the offseason, snatching the ball out of the air with ease in traffic. He went up high to make some spectacular catches." A hamstring injury wrecked most of Davis' rookie season, but he flashed late with a 6-91 line in Week 16 and then a 5-63-2 in Tennessee's playoff loss to the Patriots. With better health -- and a more modern offense under new OC Matt LaFleur -- Davis is a prime 2018 breakout candidate.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) practiced all week and will play against the Ravens on Sunday. The rookie has been sidelined since Week 2 and probably won’t be out there for a full allotment of snaps. But he posted a 6-69 line on 10 targets in the season opener — despite missing most of the offseason and playing 66% of the snaps. Consider Davis a risk/reward WR3 for Week 9.
Titans HC Mike Mularkey said Monday that WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is expected to be on the field when the team returns to practice after the Week 8 bye. That would presumably put him on track to play against the Ravens in Week 9. Davis has been out since Week 2 and won't be a reliable fantasy play off the bat. But he could emerge as an asset down the stretch. He'll get positive matchups in Weeks 12 (Colts), 14(Cardinals) and 15 (49ers).
Titans HC Mike Mularkey on Monday ruled out WR Corey Davis (hamstring) for this weekend's game against the Browns. It'll be the rookie's 5th straight missed game. And we haven't seen or heard any signs of progress. Tennessee has a Week 8 bye, so perhaps Davis is targeting a Week 9 return. Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor will again serve as the top 3 WRs for Sunday's plus matchup vs. Cleveland.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game against the Colts. The rookie has been sidelined since Week 3 and has no timetable for return. He's worth stashing if possible but might need to be dropped in shorter-bench leagues as the bye weeks start to hit.
Titans HC Mike Mularkey on Monday ruled out WR Corey Davis (hamstring) for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. It'll be the rookie's 3rd straight missed game -- and there's no timetable for his return. Davis might be tough to hang on to in shallow-bench leagues with the bye weeks starting to hit.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans. The decision coming so early suggests he might miss additional time beyond Week 4. Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker will continue to serve as Tennessee's top 2 WRs in the meantime.
Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Getting scratched so early means he could be looking at a multi-week absence. We'd still try to stash the talented rookie on fantasy benches. With Davis sidelined, Tennessee's top 3 WRs will be Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor. None is a strong fantasy play vs. Seattle.
