Shark Bites

Titans S Amani Hooker will miss at least 3 games after the team placed him on IR this week. Hooker exited Week 1 with a foot injury, the severity of which is not yet clear. Bradley McDougald filled in for Hooker in that game and figures to start next to Kevin Byard while Hooker is out. McDougald has been a solid-to-strong IDP producer when playing full time in previous stops.

Recent Shark Bites

The Titans have placed S Amani Hooker on IR, which will end his season. Hooker played every snap of the Week 15 OT loss to the Texans but then missed practice all week with a knee injury. The team had already ruled him out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. With S K'Von Wallace also ruled out, the starting safeties should be Elijah Molden and Terrell Edmunds. Molden has five starts this season and played 100% of the snaps in four of those. He's an OK deep start if you need him, though Seattle hasn't been a positive scoring matchup for DBs. Make sure you don't overrate Molden's usefulness by looking at his fantasy total from last week, when he returned an INT for a TD against Houston. Molden can be a sneaky option for CB-required leagues, though, if he carries CB eligibility there. Edmunds has played sparingly since arriving in Tennessee in the Kevin Byard trade, reaching 50% snap share just once. We wouldn't bet a Week 16 lineup slot on him unless you play in an abnormally deep league. Check our updated Week 16 DB rankings to see where both players sit.

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

The Titans have ruled S Amani Hooker (knee), DL Denico Autry (knee) and CB Kristian Fulton (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. It'll be the 4th straight missed game for Autry and 2nd for Fulton. Hooker played the past 3 games, leaving early from last week's loss to the Jaguars. S Andrew Adams should get his 3rd straight game of starter-level duty in Hooker's absence. Adams has actually played 78% of snaps or more in 7 of the past 8 games, some with Hooker in the lineup and others without. Check the Week 15 IDP rankings for Adams' adjusted position.

Titans S Amani Hooker is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs after apparently sustaining a groin injury in Friday's practice. He didn't appear on the injury report until Friday, when he was limited. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
