Titans | Justin Hunter getting praise

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 14:44:05 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is drawing big comparisons to retired WR Randy Moss from WR Michael Preston. "Not only is the sky the limit, I think he's going to be alright (personally)," Preston said. "I know how great a player Randy Moss was, and in my mind, there's no reason Justin can't be the next greatest player … I just want to be there to support him. I know he's going to grow, make a great leap this year, and impress the city and fans with his talent."

Titans | Praise Justin Hunter

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 13:41:36 -0700

Tennessee Titans wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson praised WR Justin Hunter, saying he could be the player that puts the team into the postseason. "He can be the receiver that puts us in the playoffs, and helps us win our division," Jefferson said. "With the growth he is going to go through, if he can keep progressing he can be the receiver that puts us over the edge. He has that much potential. He has great ability, and has gotten bigger. But keep in mind this is just his second season in the league and he is learning his second offense. He is coming on, but he has to keep working. I like the course he is on."

Titans | Justin Hunter impressing receivers coach

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 11:00:09 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is the receiver that can put the Titans into the playoffs, according to receivers coach Shawn Jefferson. Jefferson added that Hunter has great ability and has bulked up (added 15 pounds this offseason), but needs to keep working to get even better.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter has the ability to overwhelm whoever is covering him. He is currently listed as the team's third wide receiver behind Kendall Wright and Nate Washington, but if he keeps improving, he has high-end WR3 potential.

Titans | Justin Hunter adds weight

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 19:57:48 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter has bulked up 15 pounds thus far in the offseason. Hunter was a deep threat, but believes the added muscle could help when he goes over the middle because he feels "a lot more" confident about "being able to withstand injury." "I feel like I got stronger in my legs, so I can push a little harder," Hunter said. "As long as I beat (the defender), I'll be good."

Tennessee Titans WR Damian Williams was deactivated for the Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals due to a team rules violation.

"(Hunter and Williams) broke some team rules," head coach Mike Munchak said Sunday, Dec. 15. "The consequence was that they didn't suit up today."

Titans | Justin Hunter over 100 yards again

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:13:01 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter had four catches for 115 yards in the team's Week 14 loss to the Denver Broncos, giving him 100-yard games in two of the last three weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter should be a popular waiver wire target for those fantasy squads still competing for a title. He has considerable upside but has been very inconsistent, too. Add him if you're in need of WR depth this late.

Sat, 12 Oct 2013 08:17:30 -0700

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said WR Justin Hunter has been working on improving his route running skills but still has to be strong enough to get off press coverage. Hunter has only caught two passes this season but both have been for touchdowns.

Titans | Like what they have in Justin Hunter

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 14:08:30 -0700

The Tennessee Titans liked what they saw from rookie WR Justin Hunter in the team's Week 3 win over the San Diego Chargers in which Hunter caught a late-game touchdown. "One of the reasons we drafted him is we think he can be a special deep ball threat. He has a great combination of size and speed and he can jump. That was a perfect example of that situation," QB Jake Locker said of Hunter. "He was able to run down, track that football down and then when it comes to a jump ball, we feel confident he is going to come down with it 100 percent of the time, because that's his strength. That plays right into his abilities."

Fantasy Tip: This is more bad news for Kenny Britt and his owners. If Hunter continues to impress and gel with Locker, Britt might sink further into wideout obscurity in Tennessee. It might be time to think about cutting Britt for better options.

Titans | Kenny Britt a non-factor

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 12:20:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt once again was lackluster in the team's Week 3 win over the San Diego Chargers and had several drops. In a key late-game third-and-long situation, Britt was benched in favor of WR Justin Hunter, who wound up making the game-winning touchdown catch. Britt was on the sideline for all of the team's 10 plays during their 94-yard game-winning drive. WR Nate Washington, who had eight catches in the game, has become the team's top wideout, with WR Kendall Wright running more of the underneath routes. Britt said he was banged up with a sore neck and bruised rib from a scary tackle in the second quarter, but offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said the receiver rotation on the final drive was a coaching decision. Britt was targeted five times in the game and didn't have a single catch, including two drops. "Kenny's still a physical specimen. He's going to be part of this offense," Loggains said. "We just have to clean that stuff up. We can't have dropped balls from anyone. We can't have penalties. We can be a good football team if we clean that stuff up. We're not going to be good if we're stupid."

Fantasy Tip: Britt put himself further into the doghouse in this game. If you own him, you might not be able to get away with dropping him yet, but he should be banished to your bench in Week 4. Washington and Wright are gaining steam for waiver wire acquisitions.

Titans | Kendall Wright sits out

Thu, 19 Sep 2013 16:23:24 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (concussion) did not practice again Thursday, Sept. 19, but he doesn't think he has a concussion. Wright will visit with a doctor before practice Friday, Sept. 20, and the team expects him to be cleared to practice and play in Week 3 against the San Diego Chargers. WR Damian Williams will serve as the No. 3 receiver and WR Justin Hunter will be the fourth if Wright can't play.

Fantasy Tip: Wright should be a solid play against a weak Chargers secondary if he can suit up. If not, Kenny Britt and Nate Washington receive a boost in value for the week.

Titans | Kendall Wright misses practice

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 14:15:14 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Wright was hit hard by cornerback Kareem Jackson last week, which likely left him concussed. He'll have to pass the league's concussion protocol to be cleared for this weekend's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Needless to say, Wright's status will be in question. If he doesn't play, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter will likely see more targets.

Titans | Kenny Britt not happy

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 11:10:42 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt is not happy with the team and thinks this will be his last year in Tennessee.

Fantasy Tip: If Britt continues to have issues with the team, the main beneficiaries on the field will be Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. For now though, it is tough to have Britt anywhere near your starting lineup.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the team may only dress four wide receivers in their Week 1 game, which means WRs Michael Preston and Justin Hunter likely will be inactive.

Titans | Justin Hunter frustrates coaches

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter failed to make a first down on a third-and-5 play as he retreated a couple of steps to try to get more out of the play and was tackled before the marker. "They were waiting for me," Hunter said. "They were very mad. They were trying to get me to understand that when it's third down, get what you can and get down. You have to get the first down. I was trying to get more than what I had. I should've gone down."

Titans | Might keep six wideouts

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 20:33:15 -0700

The Tennessee Titans would like to carry five wide receivers, though six wouldn't be out of the question. If they keep five, WRs Kenny Britt, Justin Hunter, Nate Washington, Damian Williams and Kendall Wright are likely to be kept, although that would mean WRs Marc Mariani (leg), Michael Preston and Kevin Walter would be on the outside looking in.

Titans | Being cautious with Justin Hunter

Fri, 07 Jun 2013 12:07:18 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter (hamstring) has not participated since last month because the team does not want him to suffer a setback in his rehab from a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: The team has time to be cautious with Hunter at this time because training camp is more than a month away. Hunter was high draft choice but probably will not have a big fantasy impact this season. He should be seen as a No. 6 wide receiver in very deep leagues.
