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.
Wed, 12 Mar 2014 09:34:04 -0700
Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster is expected to have a big role on offense next season. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt is expected to use McCluster like he did San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead this season when he was the Chargers offensive coordinator. McCluster is expected to be used as a receiver out of the backfield.
Fantasy Tip: It appears McCluster will be involved in the offense with the Titans. Owners in point-per-reception leagues could consider using a late-round flier on McCluster during drafts.

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 15:28:43 -0800

Fantasy Tip: McCluster would be a flex option, at best, in deeper leagues, if he plays. Keep in mind that he was inactive in Week 15. We recommend going in another direction in order to capture your league championship.
Sun, 15 Dec 2013 11:35:04 -0800

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 15:39:43 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (ankle) is dealing with an ankle infection that makes him questionable to play in Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders. He had a small cut on his ankle in Week 14 and the area swelled this week. An MRI exam has ruled out structural damage, and he underwent a small procedure to open and clean the wound.
Fri, 13 Dec 2013 15:28:46 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to check the inactive list before the game to see if McCluster is able to play. If he plays, he should be considered a flex option in standard leagues but likely would have more value in point-per-reception leagues.
Thu, 12 Dec 2013 20:12:36 -0800
The Kansas City Chiefs could add practice squad WR Frankie Hammond Jr. to their active roster because they may need him to be a punt returner Week 15 if WR Dexter McCluster (ankle) is not able to play.
Thu, 12 Dec 2013 15:35:43 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Fantasy Tip: This is a new injury; McCluster was not on the injury report yesterday. The Chiefs would miss him on special teams the most if it's significant enough to keep him out against the Oakland Raiders. If he plays, he's a flex, at best, in deeper leagues.
Fri, 06 Dec 2013 13:09:27 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as probable for Week 14.

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 17:52:30 -0800

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 14:36:31 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Fantasy Tip: Now that we know Dwayne Bowe will play in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos, McCluster is a weak flex play in point-per-reception formats this weekend.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 11:09:58 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster had a team-high seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Cleveland Brown. He also had one rush for five yards. "As a player, you never know when it's going to be your day," said McCluster, who was targeted by QB Alex Smith a team-high 10 times. "You just have to be there when it's time. I was able to get started early and get some balls early." His 13 touches were a season high, and the team has been looking for someone to step up and help lighten the workload for RB Jamaal Charles. Smith thinks the team will use McCluster more in the second half of the season.
Fantasy Tip: With Dwayne Bowe being limited with an injury, McCluster stepped up last Sunday. Bowe has been a disappointment, and McCluster's jack-of-all-trades versatility could make him a valuable asset down the stretch, especially in point-per-reception leagues. Consider adding him as receiver depth in deeper formats.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 13:18:39 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) did not practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Andy Reid said Bowe will be a game-time decision Sunday. "It's day to day," Reid said. "We'll just see how he does. He's feeling a little bit better today than he did yesterday." Bowe was injured toward the end of practice Thursday, Oct. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster will be used more often if Bowe doesn't play or is limited in any fashion on game day. Junior Hemingway could also receive the start if Bowe is sidelined.
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 09:20:36 -0700
The Kansas City Chiefs acquired WR A.J. Jenkins from the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Aug. 19, in exchange for WR Jonathan Baldwin.
Fantasy Tip: Jenkins wasn't impressing the Niners in his effort to replace Michael Crabtree (Achilles') as a main receiving threat opposite Anquan Boldin. He'll likely have less of a chance to make an impact in KC, but it is a new start, so don't overlook that opportunity. He'll have to compete with Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster. Jenkins might be worth a late-round flier if he picks up the offense quickly and impresses in the final two weeks of the preseason.
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 08:47:23 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster is lining up everywhere eligible for a receiver in training camp. He has delivered some big plays. "One million, five hundred and thirty-six ways that I can get the football," McCluster said of his role in the Chiefs' offense. "This offense is wide-open. You get opportunities everywhere. It's a fun offense."
Sun, 04 Aug 2013 20:05:58 -0700
The Kansas City Chiefs released their first depth chart Sunday, Aug. 4, and WRs Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster are listed as backups behind WRs Dwayne Bowe and Jonathan Baldwin. However, Avery and McCluster are frequently used in the slot or in multi-wideout formations.
Fantasy Tip: Avery and McCluster might have more fantasy potential than Baldwin, who has been rather disappointing over his first two NFL seasons. Still, each of the three should be considered WR4 or flex fantasy options.
Fri, 26 Jul 2013 19:39:37 -0700
When Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was with the Philadelphia Eagles, he was intrigued by WR Dexter McCluster during the 2010 NFL Draft. When Reid was hired in January, he immediately began making plans for McCluster. "He gives you a little flexibility," Reid said. "You can move him around a little. We'll use him here or there. I don't know where he couldn't line up, to be honest, as far as skill positions go. He's got that many tools in the belt."
Fantasy Tip: McCluster might see his stock climb on draft day in fantasy leagues. Realistically, he should only be worth a late-round pick based upon his previous production, but he could find himself going in the neighborhood of Rounds 12 through 14 if he has a strong training camp and preseason.
Fri, 26 Jul 2013 19:36:51 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith connected with WR Dexter McCluster on a deep pass down the middle that was hauled in for a touchdown Friday, July 26, on the first play at training camp. More importantly than the big plays, head coach Andy Reid likes consistency, and Smith went several plays into practice before throwing his first incompletion. "There weren't a lot of balls on the ground, and it looked like the defense had people covered," Reid said.
Fantasy Tip: Smith is considered a Top 25 fantasy quarterback right now, and he should be treated as a low-end QB2 until he proves otherwise. His average draft position (ADP) has been around the 180th overall pick.

Thu, 23 May 2013 11:24:18 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the organized team activities Thursday, May 23, and was not able to return. Head coach Andy Reid said he believes McCluster will be able to return to practice next week.
Fantasy Tip: The injury does not sound serious, but McCluster has time to let the injury heal if he is not able to return next week. McCluster likely will be used as a slot receiver this season. He could be a late-round option in point-per-reception leagues, but he likely would be a waiver wire pickup in most leagues.
Thu, 16 May 2013 16:37:02 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin appears to be the favorite for the No. 2 wide receiver job at this point but has not emerged as the dominant offseason player like he was last offseason. WRs Donnie Avery, Dexter McCluster and Terrance Copper are also expected to be candidates for the job.
Tue, 09 Apr 2013 05:56:17 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he has big plans for WR Dexter McCluster in the offense. Reid wanted to draft McCluster in 2010 while serving as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. "I like McCluster. I think he's a good football player and he has a role on this football team. I've got some things in mind for him," Reid said. "He's a unique talent because he can do a couple, three different things for you whether it's special teams as a returner or whether it's offense as a receiver or a running back."
Sun, 07 Apr 2013 11:31:42 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster said he is looking forward to playing in head coach Andy Reid's offensive scheme because he will be used at different positions. "Keeping the defense on their toes," McCluster said. "Move me around, make a headache for the defense. He said he wants to use me in multiple places. That's the type of player I am and that's the type of player I've been. Now I have the opportunity to showcase what I can really do."
Thu, 14 Mar 2013 18:01:29 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he has plans on how to use WR Dexter McCluster next season. "I like McCluster," Reid said. "I think he's a good football player and he has a role on this football team. I've got some things in mind for him."
Sat, 05 Jan 2013 11:37:54 -0800

Fri, 28 Dec 2012 13:04:12 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Mon, 17 Dec 2012 15:55:57 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs wideouts were not very productive in a Week 15 shutout against the Oakland Raiders. WR Dexter McCluster had a career-high seven catches for only 59 yards. WRs Jamar Newsome and Devon Wylie caught just one pass with the most experience starter, WR Steve Breaston inactive because of head coach Romeo Crennel's decision. "I'm still not sure why I'm not playing," Breaston said. "I'm past all that now. It just is what it is. There are other things for this team to worry about." WR Jonathan Baldwin did not catch a single pass.
Sun, 16 Dec 2012 21:55:10 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster rolled up seven receptions for a team-best 59 yards in the Week 15 game against the Oakland Raiders. WRs Jamar Newsome and Devon Wylie were the only other wideouts to get onto the stat sheet, and they managed just one catch for six yards each.
Thu, 13 Dec 2012 17:54:31 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin will be one of the starters at wide receiver in Week 15 with WR Dwayne Bowe (ribs) out for the rest of the year. Head coach Romeo Crennel said WRs Steve Breaston and Devon Wylie could be starting opposite of Breaston, but Crennel is unsure which player that will be. "We're going to work during the week and we're going to see who will give us the best chance in the game, and then those guys will be active," Crennel said. Breaston has disappointed with only seven catches for 74 yards this, but he is the receiver with the most experience on the current roster. He has been inactive for four of the last five games, and Crennel indicated that Breaston doesn't seem to have a strong grasp of the offense. WR Dexter McCluster has the most catches on roster in his career other than Breaston, with 108.
Fri, 30 Nov 2012 11:42:24 -0800
