Titans WR Justin Hunter injured his right leg late in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.  He was fitted with an air cast and carted off the field.  Hunter's season is very likely over.  That should mean an even bigger role for rookie WR Dorial Green-Beckham.

Recent Shark Bites

The Steelers have signed WR Justin Hunter. The former 2nd-round pick has disappointed in Tennessee and Buffalo through 4 NFL seasons. Pittsburgh will be the best offense Hunter has played in, but he's still a long shot to emerge as a fantasy factor. If Martavis Bryant is reinstated, Hunter figures to battle with Sammie Coates for the #4 spot on the depth chart behind Bryant, Antonio Brown and Eli Rogers.

The Dolphins have claimed WR Justin Hunter off waivers from the Titans. It's hard to imagine things finally clicking for the former 2nd-round pick, who got plenty of chances in Tennessee. But the talent that made him a high pick makes him worth keeping an eye on under HC Adam Gase.

Titans WR Justin Hunter fractured his right ankle in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.  That'll very likely end his 2015 season.  Hunter caught 22 balls in 9 games and has 1 year left on his rookie deal.  Tennessee is left with Harry Douglas and Dorial Green-Beckham atop the depth chart.  We'll see if WR Kendall Wright can return from his knee injury for Thursday night's game against the Jaguars.

Titans insider John Glennon notes that WR Justin Hunter has “picked up his game over the past several days of training camp.” Hunter’s also flashed supreme athleticism by making a “handful” of impressive catches, per Glennon. The 24-year-old is no stranger to lighting it up in camp. In fact, he enjoyed a strong preseason last year, hauling in 10 balls for 217 yards and 2 scores. Consistency is the key, and we’ve yet to see it from Hunter. While he’s on the deep league radar – especially in “best ball” leagues – Tennessee’s crowded WR corps figures to cap his upside.

Titans WR coach Shawn Jefferson has seen improvement from WR Justin Hunter in the mental side of the game.  The praise is especially noteworthy coming from Jefferson because he's been notoriously tough on Hunter over the last couple of years.    ESPN's Paul Kuharsky agrees that Hunter has been "more consistent" in camp so far.  We still want to see Hunter produce when it actually counts.  And, of course, he could be facing a suspension for his July 3rd assault charge.  But Hunter is worth keeping an eye on.  He's a 6'4, 205-pounder with 4.4 speed who just turned 24.  Tennessee's WR depth chart is wide open behind Kendall Wright.
