Tennessee Titans RB Jalston Fowler is likely to be used in a creative fashion after he played fullback, running back, H-back and tight end in college. He had seven touchdowns among his 19 receptions at Alabama.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey doesn't have a lot of competition with David Cobb out much of the offseason with a hamstring injury. Dexter McCluster and Antonio Andrews will battle with Cobb for the backup carries. Sankey is a midrange RB3 with room to grow.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota should provide some consistency at the helm of a team that started three different quarterbacks one year ago.

Fantasy Tip: Offset language had been the sticking point in negotiations, so this should be viewed as a win by Mariota's reps. Either way, Mariota and the rest of the Titans can now enter training camp without distractions surrounding their face-of-the-franchise quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota was the last first-round pick to get his deal done. The completion of the deal comes right before training camp, so now Mariota can really focus on working with his teammates. He is expected to start right away for the Titans, but shouldn't be viewed as a starting fantasy quarterback just yet.

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.

Updating an earlier report, Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter has been charged with one count of felonious assault. According to the jail report, the charges are "malicious intent, stabbing, cutting, wounding."
Fantasy Tip: Hunter is a WR5 flyer that was supposed to compete for a starting receiver spot. Stay tuned for more details on the case.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter is expected to compete for a starting job if his legal situation doesn't derail those plans. Look for him in the final rounds of drafts as a WR5.

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.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota's rookie contract will contain offset language, according to team president Steve Underwood. Underwood said it's important to have the offset language in place because it sets the precedent for the next round of players' contracts.
Fantasy Tip: Mariota is still the only rookie not to sign his rookie deal. Once he does sign, he is still expected to be the starting quarterback. Mariota's dual-threat ability gives him added value, but he should still be drafted as a QB2.
