Titans | Justin Hunter playing some in slot

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 15:33:16 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter has seen some time in the slot position during organized team activities. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Hunter may be used in the slot to help keep tabs on who's going where on defense and to force the opposition to prepare for different looks.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine Hunter seeing a lot of playing time in the slot. He's a big receiver and fits better on the outside. Plus, Kendall Wright has proven to be more than a suitable slot receiver, not to mention Harry Douglas can also be used in that position. Hunter is probably the Titans' best deep threat, but his lack of catching consistency makes him a WR5 at best for now.

Titans | Justin Hunter in do-or-die situation?

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:25:21 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter may have his last opportunity to prove he belongs in the NFL, or at least with the Titans, in 2015. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt recently said, "At some point, you either get it or you won't be in this league anymore," in regards to Hunter's play the last couple of seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter has shown signs of breaking out, but hasn't reached his full potential yet. His catch rate has been at the bottom of the league in consecutive seasons and he'll be facing more competition with Hakeem Nicks and rookie Dorial Green-Beckham now also in the mix. He's too risky to draft high and should be taken near the WR5 range.

Titans | Justin Hunter adding weight

Thu, 07 May 2015 09:44:19 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter said he has been working on adding some weight this offseason. Hunter finished this past season at 196 pounds but is currently 206 pounds and wants to be at 210 pounds by the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter had his 2014 season end early because of a spleen injury but will be ready for offseason workouts. He likely will compete with Dorial Green-Beckham for a starting job during training camp. Hunter could be a late-round option in fantasy drafts next season.

Titans | Justin Hunter expects to fight for job

Thu, 07 May 2015 09:31:05 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is expected to compete with WR Dorial Green-Beckham for one of the starting receiver jobs during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter likely will enter camp as the leading candidate since he has been in the offense longer than Green-Beckham, but Green-Beckham will be given the chance to win the job. Both players probably will be late-round options in drafts next season.

Titans | Justin Hunter placed on IR

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 13:23:08 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter (spleen) was placed on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Dec. 2. Hunter ruptured his spleen in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter's disappointing season officially comes to an end and gives more value to WRs Kendall Wright and Nate Washington and TE Delanie Walker. Wright is at least worth a look on FantasyScore at $5,200.

Titans | Justin Hunter expected to be fine

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:44:30 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter (spleen) is expected to be fine after suffering a ruptured spleen in Week 13, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter probably will not be able to play in Week 14, and there is a good chance he misses several weeks because of the injury. Kendall Wright and Nate Washington likely will receive bigger roles in the offense with Hunter out, which will boost their fantasy value. Both receivers could be options for owners on FantasyScore this week if the price is right.

Titans | Justin Hunter won't need surgery

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 09:37:37 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter (spleen) isn't expected to need surgery for his lacerated spleen, but he'll remain in a Houston hospital for the next day or two.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter probably will be unlikely to suit up in Week 13 against the New York Giants. Consider both Kendall Wright and Nate Washington to be decent value plays at FantasyScore, depending on their prices, against the G-men.

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 14:34:31 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter (stomach) was taken to a hospital in Houston following the Week 13 game against the Houston Texans to get stomach pain checked out.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter finished with just one catch for 18 yards in the loss. With Hunter out of the picture, it was Kendall Wright stepping up and Nate Washington re-emerging as solid options in the pass game.
