Julius Chestnut rushes for 13 yards in Week 13 loss

Julius Chestnut carried the ball five times for 13 rushing yards in the Titans' 35-10 Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Chestnut found little success in his first game action for the Titans this season, averaging just 2.6 yards per carry against a solid Philadelphia defensive front. Ahead is a more friendly Week 14 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but Chestnut is nothing more than a desperation roster stash for a Tennessee offense that lives and dies with bellcow running back Derrick Henry.

Julius Chestnut makes Titans’ 53-man roster

Julius Chestnut has survived cuts and made the Titans’ 53-man roster out of training camp according to the’s Justin M.

Fantasy Impact

Chestnut rushed for 106 yards on 26 carries (4.08 ypc) and one touchdown while adding three receptions for an additional 22 yards across all three of Tennessee’s preseason games. The undrafted rookie out of Sacred Heart impressed the Titans’ staff enough during training camp to make the initial 53-man roster. Chestnut will likely be used mainly on special teams as he remains behind Dontrell Hilliard and Hassan Haskins for even the backup role to Derrick Henry to begin the season. Chestnut would be a decent handcuff for Henry’s fantasy managers who couldn’t snag Hilliard.

Julius Chestnut leads Titans backfield in loss to Baltimore Thursday

Julius Chestnut finished with seven carries for 48 rushing yards and caught his only target for an additional 12 yards in Tennessee’s 23-10 loss in Baltimore on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Julius Chestnut, the undrafted rookie out of Sacred Heart, remains a long shot to make the Titans’ roster but made the most of his carries on Thursday night in Baltimore. Chestnut did fumble on the first play of the Titans’ second drive of the game and did not see the field on the Titans’ next possession. Chestnut bounced back to gain 51 yards on his remaining six touches and showcased the ability that has stood out in training camp. Chesnut’s night was highlighted by a 29-yard scamper on his very next carry following his early fumble. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was reportedly “pleased with how well [Chestnut] bounced back” from his 1st quarter fumble. His head coach’s comments notwithstanding, Chestnut must show better ball security if he wants to make the Titans’ regular season roster. At a minimum, the rookie can use Thursday’s showcase as game film to catch on with another team.
