Titans | Offense heading in new direction
With the move to new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, the Tennessee Titans are expected to return some of their base principles run by former offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger. Loggains will look to get rid of confusion that was created in Chris Palmer's offense where the quarterback and receiver were regularly crossed up and not on the same page. Palmer's option routes frequently included no flexibility for the players. Loggains is expected to allow receivers more freedom to play off coverages to take advantage of space and work in it. QB Jake Locker will be allowed to see something develop and take advantage of it. The move to Loggains should mean more downfield options. Some of the underneath options may disappear - a tight end heading into the flat may now stay in to block to allow the other tight end who is crossing deeper a chance to make a play.
Fantasy Tip: The coordinator change should benefit the offense positively overall. Perhaps Jared Cook will see the biggest value spike, giving Locker another downfield option other than Kenny Britt, Nate Washington or Kendall Wright. Chris Johnson should feel more comfortable with Loggains at the helm, too, giving him a chance to get back to his more natural, instinctual running style.
