Amani Hooker done for season; who's starting at safety?

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.
