Titans | Dexter McCluster has head injury

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 15:14:37 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (concussion) was suffering from concussion-like symptoms after the Week 12 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: McCluster ended his day with one carry for two yards, and three receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown. He is only worth a look in FantasyScore as a flex player when 100 percent healthy and he faces an ultra-favorable matchup.

Titans | Dexter McCluster probable

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 12:02:31 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (foot) fully participated in practice Friday Sept. 19, and is probable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: While McCluster is likely good to go for Week 3, he does not have a match up in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He may not live up to expectations in FantasyScore with a price of $4,400.

Titans | Dexter McCluster fully participates

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 15:51:09 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough matchup for McCluster this week against the Cincinnati Bengals on the road, possibly making his price of $4,400 at FantasyScore a little too expensive.

Titans | Dexter McCluster expected to improve

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:57:52 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Whisenhunt thinks McCluster will improve as the week goes on. McCluster was wearing a walking boot Sunday, Sept. 14, but he "was up and running" Wednesday, according to The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt.

Fantasy Tip: McCluster should be ready to go later this week and play against the Cincinnati Bengals. Even at a cheap price of $4,400 (8.8% of cap), McCluster isn't an attractive option as part of a committee in the backfield and going up against a stout defensive front.

Titans | Dexter McCluster has sore foot

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 13:47:21 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (foot) is dealing with a sore foot, but more information on the injury is not known at this point, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if McCluster will be able to do anything during practice this week before deciding on their starting lineups. Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey and Jackie Battle could receive bigger roles if McCluster sits out, but none should be used this week. Desperate owners could consider using Greene as a flex option.

Titans | Dexter McCluster has steady role

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 18:27:52 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster's nine carries in Week 1 were the second most on the team.

Fantasy Tip: McCluster was expected to be a threat in the passing game, but the nine carries seem to indicate that the Titans want him to have a meaningful role in the offense. Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt was the offensive coordinator in San Diego last year, and he helped make a PPR star out of Danny Woodhead. McCluster could be in line for a similar role this year. He will take up just 8.8% of your cap ($4,400) at FantasyScore in Week 2, and he could be a great bargain option at the position with Tennessee facing a Dallas team with a porous defense.

Titans | Shonn Greene good to go

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:52:01 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is ready for training camp after missing time in the offseason due to a right knee injury, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Greene would be a part of an expected split in the backfield that'll also include rookie Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster. Greene is boring but could be serviceable in short-yardage situations, which makes him a fantasy RB5 at least. Sankey has the best chance to stake a claim to the No. 1 spot, which could help decrease his price to a reasonable RB3 in drafts. McCluster could be a surprisingly effective PPR depth grab.

Titans | Missing top three running backs

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 14:50:28 -0700

Titans | Shonn Greene to be ready for training camp

Mon, 12 May 2014 10:16:34 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp this summer after recently having right knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming Greene is healthy entering the regular season, he should receive the majority of carries in this backfield, but it remains to be seen how they'll use Dexter McCluster, and rook Bishop Sankey has the goods to eventually become the main back in Tennessee.

Titans | Minicamp to define Dexter McCluster

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 21:08:27 -0700

The Tennessee Titans minicamp might offer a few clues as to how the team plans to use RB Dexter McCluster in an offense which no longer features RB Chris Johnson (Jets). Teammates have raved about McCluster's footwork and quickness.

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 | Dexter McCluster expected to have big role

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.

Titans | Dexter McCluster agrees to terms

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 13:19:25 -0700

The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Dexter McCluster (Chiefs) on a three-year deal worth as much as $12 million. The deal includes $4.5 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: McCluster probably will not be a draft option in some leagues but he could be used some weeks next season depending on the matchup.
