Titans | Shonn Greene fine with RB committee

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 20:44:30 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene said he will be fine with being part of a running back committee because it will allow the players to stay fresh. "Nowadays it's not just one back getting the job done, it's done by committee. I take that as a good thing, because it keeps guys fresh, it keeps guys healthy, no one takes a beating like you once did when you had one back, when you used a [workhorse] back. So I welcome all those guys on the roster to come help the team out so we can get where we need to be," Greene said.

Titans | Chris Johnson to be released

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 09:02:02 -0700

The Tennessee Titans plan on releasing RB Chris Johnson Friday, April 4, according to sources. He averaged a career-worst 3.9 yards per carry in 2013 and didn't have a run longer than 30 yards. Johnson is scheduled to make $8 million in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will latch on with a team somewhere, but he's unlikely to be a lead back. Expect him to sign to form a running back tandem wherever he goes. In his absence, the Titans have a backfield that consists of Shonn Greene and the versatile Dexter McCluster. Expect Tennessee to address their RB situation in the draft, as well.

Titans | John Skelton No. 3

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 10:08:43 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB John Skelton will serve as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Rusty Smith. Skelton isn't expected to be active in Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders. "We thought we had a need just because of the way quarterbacks get hurt," head coach Mike Munchak said. "Rusty will go in if anything happens to Fitz, but this allows us to have somebody else here learning our offense in case we have another injury." The Titans would likely run a wildcat offense with RBs Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene taking snaps if both Fitzpatrick and Smith are injured.

Titans | Shonn Greene's touches to go up?

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 14:18:54 -0700

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said RB Shonn Greene is expected to be in the 15-carry range moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly if Greene will approach 15 carries per game but regardless, it looks like the Titans plan to involve Greene much more moving forward. This is bad news for Chris Johnson owners. Greene will become more than just a handcuff to Johnson if this plan is stuck to by the Titans.

Titans | Jake Locker, Shonn Greene to begin activities

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 12:55:00 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hip) will begin "football activities" this week, according to head coach Mike Munchak. There is a chance that Locker could return in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but it is unlikely. RB Shonn Greene (knee) is also expected to ramp up his activities this week. Locker isn't being ruled out this weekend, but the more likely scenario is that he returns after the team's Week 8 bye.

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 18:42:13 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) had arthroscopic surgery Monday, Sept. 16, according to sources. Greene might be sidelined a few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Jackie Battle could see more of a role in the offense behind starter Chris Johnson while Greene is sidelined, but fantasy owners need not bother with Battle, or any other Tennessee RB not named Johnson, for now.

Titans | Shonn Greene leaves with knee injury

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 00:08:41 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) left the game Sunday, Sept. 8, against the Pittsburgh Steelers with an apparent knee injury. According to Titansinsider.com, Titans coach Mike Munchak later told media the injury was not serious.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Johnson will get the bulk of the carries in Tennessee until he goes down, so Greene was strictly a backup. However, if Greene cannot see game action for a spell then Jackie Battle will likely take over. If Battle is available, you may want to pick him up and stash him on your bench as backup.

Titans | Chris Johnson figures to be busy

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 09:55:05 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson figures to be busy this season, even if he loses some carries to RB Shonn Greene in short-yardage situations. "I never really get any short-yardage plays, so it doesn't really matter," Johnson said. Johnson has said his top priority of making the playoffs, and the last time the team did that, Johnson split carries with RB LenDale White. So Johnson is willing the share the load somewhat.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson remains a Top 15 fantasy back heading into the season, and he is a solid selection anywhere from the middle of the second round to early third round on draft day. He should still come close to 300 touches despite the presence of Greene.

Titans | Chris Johnson approves of Sylvester Croom's tweaks

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 16:56:11 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson approves of new RB coach Sylvester Croom. Comparing Croom to Earnest Byner, who held the job during Chris Johnson's 2,006-yard season back in 2009, Johnson said "it seems like everything is going well. ... He's a pretty good coach." Johnson said Croom has tweaked a couple of Johnson's steps during running plays and routes coming out of the backfield. "That's a little minor change that I can tell is already helping me out," Johnson said. Tennessee is aiming for Johnson to log more receptions this year.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has experienced struggles with technique and system over his Titans career, and maybe these alterations could get more productivity out of him. Though newly acquired Shonn Greene looms as a threat for carries, especially in the red zone, Johnson could in fact wind up as a solid value as a draft-day RB2 that will more than often perform as an RB1.

Titans | Chris Johnson uncertain about Shonn Greene signing

Thu, 21 Mar 2013 11:16:36 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson indicated he does not completely understand the team's signing of RB Shonn Greene but expects to be fine with the situation. "I have never been a big fan of the two-back system, so I don't know how we plan on using him," Johnson. "I'm not afraid of competition, but I was thinking we'd maybe get a draft pick for the other back. And you don't give a guy that kind of money to be just a goal-line guy and in tough-yardage situations. So we'll see what happens."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson should still get a majority of the carries next season, but Greene could be used in situations that Johnson handled. Johnson should be considered as a starter every week while Greene should be viewed as a No. 5 running back until his role is more clearly defined.

Titans | Will use Shonn Greene in different ways

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 19:07:53 -0700

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the team will use RB Shonn Greene in different ways next season and not only as a short yardage back. "We're not going to have him as a short-yardage back, a goal-line back and four-minute back and that's all he does. We feel he can play all three downs. He may get a series where he gets going and we're taking over the line of scrimmage and you want that runner in there and we leave him in there," Munchak said.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Greene could get more work than expected, Chris Johnson will still see a majority of the carries in 2013. Greene could be used on the goal line at times, which will help his value, but should not been seen as more than a No. 5 running back at this point.

Titans | Agree to terms with Shonn Greene

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 12:52:00 -0700

The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with RB Shonn Greene (Jets) on a three-year, $10 million contract Wednesday, Mar. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Greene will be brought in to be a complementary back to Chris Johnson that Mike Munchak has talked about so much this offseason. The idea is that Greene will be a running back that can do different things and fill a different role. It is possible that Greene could be used as a goal line back that will steal some touchdowns away from Johnson. Greene could be used a lot in short-yardage situations as well.
