Jonnu Smith caught 6-of-8 targets for 44 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Colts.

The catches were a new career high, while the 44 yards were his second-most after last week's 45. Finally becoming a part of the Titans' offense, Smith will offer TE2 appeal down the stretch. How useable he is in Week 12 will depend on who is under center after Marcus Mariota re-injured his throwing elbow against the Colts.

Tajae Sharpe caught 5-of-7 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Colts.

The yards were Sharpe's first in four weeks. His touchdown came in the deepest recesses of garbage time. Even if Taywan Taylor (foot) remains sidelined for Week 12, Sharpe will not be a compelling WR5.
Nov 18 - 5:42 PM

Blaine Gabbert completed 11-of-16 passes for 118 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Titans' 38-10, Week 11 loss to the Colts.

Gabbert was forced into the game in the dying moments of the first half after Marcus Mariota re-injured his throwing elbow. The Titans were already losing 24-0. Gifted an entire half of garbage time, Gabbert did nothing until the final two minutes, when he found Tajae Sharpe in the end zone. Hilariously, his interception was thrown literally right to LB Darius Leonard. The Titans won't have a prayer if Gabbert is forced to start next Monday night's game against the Texans.

Derrick Henry rushed nine times for 46 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Colts.

Most of Henry's yardage came in the second half of a non-competitive game. The Titans' offense was completely off the rails today, especially once Marcus Mariota departed with an elbow injury. With only two teams on bye for Week 12, Henry will be a last-gasp FLEX option against the Texans.
Nov 18 - 4:47 PM

Dion Lewis rushed 10 times for 24 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Colts, adding an eight-yard reception.

Both the touches and yards were Lewis' fewest in over a month. The Titans offense never got in rhythm. Marcus Mariota was discombobulated by the blitz and departed with an elbow injury late in the first half. Blaine Gabbert should not be on an NFL football field. Provided Mariota can get back for next Monday's game against the Texans, Lewis should bounce back to the 15-20 touch range as an RB2.
Nov 18 - 4:41 PM

Corey Davis caught 2-of-4 targets for 30 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Colts.

The Titans' offense appeared derailed from the opening snap, with the Colts scrambling Marcus Mariota, especially on third down. Mariota then re-injured his throwing elbow late in the first half. It was game over for Davis' fantasy prospects once laughingstock Blaine Gabbert checked in. Davis' Week 12 prospects against the Texans will depend on who is under center for the Titans. If it's Mariota, Davis will maintain upside WR3 appeal despite his up-and-down season.

Marcus Mariota was forced from Sunday's game against the Colts with a right (throwing) elbow injury and is questionable to return.

Mariota appears available for emergency duty, but it was Blaine Gabbert who took the field for the third quarter. Mariota went down in the waning moments of the first half. He sat on the field trying to shake his elbow out for several minutes. Gabbert will play out the string of what's shaping up to be a blowout loss.
Nov 18 - 2:47 PM

Titans DC Dean Pees left Sunday's game against the Colts with a medical issue.

He has been taken to the hospital for further evaluation. It appears head coach Mike Vrabel has taken over the defensive play-calling.
Nov 18 - 2:10 PM

Titans WR Tajae Sharpe (ankle) is active for Week 11 against the Colts.

Sharpe popped up on Friday's injury report, but it was just a scare. With Taywan Taylor (foot) remaining sidelined, Sharpe will be needed for major snaps against the Colts' soft defense. Joining Taylor as inactive are LB Will Compton, RB David Fluellen, CB Kenneth Durden, OG Aaron Stinnie, OT Tyler Marz and DL Matt Dickerson.
Nov 18 - 11:32 AM

Titans RT Jack Conklin has cleared the concussion protocol.

He'll return Sunday after sitting last week. Conklin has been playing at a high level this year, grading as a top-25 tackle at PFF. His return upgrades the entire Tennessee offense.
Nov 17 - 4:17 PM

Taywan Taylor (foot) has been downgraded to out for Week 11.

This was expected despite Tennessee listing Taylor as questionable. Taylor hasn't practiced the last two weeks, so there's no guarantee he returns in Week 12. With Tajae Sharpe (questionable, ankle) up in the air for Sunday, the Titans could be down to Cameron Batson and Darius Jennings behind Corey Davis. Daily Slant: With fellow Titans wideout Tajae Sharp questionable as well, there may be plenty of targets opening up for the remaining Titans pass catchers. Corey Davis seems locked into the largest target share, but Cameron Batson and tight end Jonnu Smith make interesting punt options for the Week 11 DFS slate as well if Sharpe were to also be ruled out.

Tajae Sharpe (ankle) is questionable for Week 11 against the Colts.

Sharpe was a full participant all week but suddenly got in limited work Friday. He's questionable, as is teammate Taywan Taylor (foot). Cameron Batson and Darius Jennings would receive extended reps if either are ruled out Sunday. Corey Davis remains the only Titans receiver worth starting with any amount of confidence.
Nov 16 - 4:22 PM

Taywan Taylor (foot) is questionable for Week 11 against the Colts.

Despite his encouraging listing on the team's injury report, it's hard to imagine Taylor plays after failing to practice for two straight weeks. Teammate Tajae Sharpe (ankle, questionable) was also surprisingly added to Tennessee's injury report Friday. Their pending absences are moot for Corey Davis, who should continue to thrive as the team's focal point against the Colts.
Nov 16 - 4:13 PM

Taywan Taylor (foot) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Taylor hasn't seen the field since injuring his foot in Week 9 and seems like a long shot to play Sunday at Indianapolis. Corey Davis and Tajae Sharpe will both see more opportunities in his absence.
Nov 15 - 4:04 PM

Delanie Walker (ankle, injured reserve) is holding out hope he can return during the playoffs if the Titans make it.

"In the back of my mind, if I can get healthy earlier where I can come back and play, I’m going to do that," Walker said. "But right now, I’m just worried about taking it day by day just to get healthy and be able to come back next year. But if I can play this year, I will." Walker's fantasy season is over, and it sounds like returning in the playoffs is a bit of a pipe dream considering he just recently began walking with crutches. That said, Walker would be a big boost to an ascending offense if he is able to make it back.
