Titans | Justin Hunter will be at practice Friday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:58:06 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter will practice Friday, July 31, just days after being released from jail for an assault charge.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter's off-field issues aside, he has some of the worst hands in the NFL and isn't a reliable starting fantasy option.

Titans | Justin Hunter to take part in camp

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 22:56:59 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is expected to take part in training camp when it opens, as the team will let the legal process play out, according to a source. Hunter was arrested earlier in the month of felony assault.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter has tremendous size, but he managed to reel in just 28 of his 67 targets last season. Without the arrest, he would be a late-round flier on draft day. With the arrest and uncertainty about a potential suspension, he is someone to avoid.

Titans | Justin Hunter released from jail

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:10:58 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter was released from jail on a $25,000 bond Tuesday, July 21. Hunter had been charged with malicious wounding in an incident earlier this month. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Whether Hunter is punished by the Titans and/or the NFL remains to be seen. Even if Hunter doesn't miss any time, he has proven to be unreliable with his hands. He only caught 28 of his 67 targets last season, so he should only be drafted for depth at wide receiver.

Titans | Justin Hunter arrested

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 15:33:29 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter was arrested Monday, July 20, and has been charged with assault because of an incident earlier this month. Hunter was allegedly involved in a fight at a bar in Virginia Beach that sent a person to the hospital.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter could receive a punishment from the NFL for his involvement in the incident, so owners may want to monitor the situation. Hunter is expected to compete for one of the starting wide receiver jobs during training camp. Hunter could be an option in the late rounds of deeper league drafts but will not be a consistent starter.

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.
