Tennessee Titans

AFC South

New Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith says Derrick Henry will be a big part of the offense in 2019. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Smith added the Titans aren't afraid to win ugly, which could lead to running the ball more often and playing good defense. Henry was a bust for most of 2018 but erupted down the stretch. From weeks 13-17 he averaged 6.44 YPC and scored seven TDs. Still, he doesn't offer any production in the passing game, which could once again limit his fantasy upside next year.

The Titans D/ST came away with one interception, one fumble recovery, one sack and three tackles for losses as the team lost to the Colts by a 33-17 score.

Fantasy Impact: The Titans D/ST was underrated this season and had a solid year for fantasy owners. They could not stop the Colts though in a must-win situation in the last game of the year.

Luke Stocker hauled in one of his two targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Stocker had a chance to establish himself as a starting tight end after Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith went down with season-ending injuries. But the veteran TE never could make an impact and finishes with 15 catches on 21 targets.

Ryan Succop made both of his extra-point attempts and his lone field-goal attempt in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Succop had a solid year in his first season with the Titans making 86 percent of his field goals and 90 percent of his extra-point attempts. Unfortunately, the Titans had a low octane offense and did not provide the veteran kicker with enough opportunities to be a must own in fantasy.

Tajae Sharpe was not targeted before exiting Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Tajae Sharpe has been dealing with an ankle issue for weeks now but he will have plenty of time to recover with the Titans season over. Sharpe ended up with a disappointing year in 2018 with just 26 catches on 47 targets.

Anthony Firkser caught his only target for eight yards as the Titans lost to the Colts on Sunday by a 33-17 score.

Fantasy Impact: Firkser a former rookie free agent out of Harvard finally got into a game in his third season in the NFL. Firkser finishes with 19 catches on 20 targets for the year and showed that he should find a backup role on a team going into 2019.

Blaine Gabbert completed 18 of 29 pass attempts for 165 yards, a touchdown and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Gabbert came into a must win situation for the Titans on Sunday and struggled against an underrated Colts defense. Gabbert is best used in a backup role and will find himself back in that situation in 2019.

Dion Lewis did not carry the ball in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts. He did add three catches on four targets for a total of 23 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis was a big part of the offense earlier in the year but his role faded as fellow running back Derrick Henry became more of the focus. If the Titans abandon their conservative offense plan and open things up in 2019 then Lewis could be a major factor in fantasy especially PPR formats.

Taywan Taylor hauled in two of his six targets for eight yards in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Taylor showed some flashes at receiver in his second season in the NFL. Taylor battled injuries but if he can stay healthy and the Titans open up their offense in 2019 then Taylor could be worth owning in most fantasy leagues.

Corey Davis caught five of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Davis looks primed for a breakout but is stuck in a conservative offense that does not feature the pass. It the Titans open things up next season then look for Davis to be a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is officially inactive for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football. Blaine Gabbert will start. (Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This news was expected all week due to Mariota's neck/stinger injury, so fantasy owners should have already prepared for this inevitability. The Titans will have to rely on Blaine Gabbert in a win-or-go-home matchup against the Colts in Week 17.

The Titans have ruled out linebacker Brian Orakpo (elbow) for Sunday night’s game against the Colts. (Source: Tennessee Titans )

Fantasy Impact: It will be the third straight week Orakpo has been forced to miss due to the elbow injury. He sustained the injury during the Week 14 Thursday night win over the Jaguars. The good news is he was able to return to limited practice for the first time Thursday and Friday but it still wasn’t enough to be ready for Sunday’s win-or-go-home showdown. It’s not clear if he would be ready for next week if the Titans are able to make it into the postseason.

Fantasy Impact: Casey suffered an MCL sprain in Saturday’s win over the Redskins. His season ends with 62 tackles, seven sacks and two forced fumbles in 15 games. It’s a tough loss as the Titans face a do-or-die matchup with the Colts this weekend.

Darius Jennings caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington. He also added one carry for two yards.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings saw a season-high three catches as the receiver got some extra time on the field with fellow receiver Tajae Sharpe out. Jennings is on the team for his special teams and is not worth picking up in fantasy leagues.

MyCole Pruitt hauled in two of his three targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Pruitt saw a season-high three targets as the veteran tight end has not been a big part of the offense this season. And while he did score a touchdown, Pruitt is not fantasy relevant.

Titans safety Kevin Byard recorded nine tackles (six solo), two passes defensed, and one interception in Saturday’s 25-16 win over the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: It’s back-to-back games with a pick for Byard who now has four on the year. Tennessee closes out the regular season with a home game against the Colts in Week 17.

Category: Game Recaps

Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard led the team with 10 tackles (five solo) and had one sack in Saturday’s 25-16 win over the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: It was a great bounce-back performance for Woodyard who had a quiet afternoon last week. He is now up to 99 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 13 games this season. The Titans wrap up the regular season with a home game against the Colts in Week 17.

Logan Ryan is out for the season after breaking his fibula on Sunday against the Giants. (Source: Logan Ryan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ryan has been one of the better slot cornerbacks in the league, and his absence hurts the Titans D/ST going forward a bit. It's unlikely that fantasy owners in their championship matchup would be relying on Jamison Crowder, but, to the extent they are, his stock should take a bump heading into the Redskins' Week 16 matchup with the Titans.

Jonnu Smith is reportedly out for the rest of the season after injuring his MCL in Thursday night's win over the Jaguars. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith left the game with a knee injury, and the severity was't reported until now. His penchant for finding the end zone made him relevant in deeper leagues despite the lack of targets, so to the extent you were relying on him, you'll need to find another option. Expect Anthony Firkser to see an uptick in looks in the passing game.

Fantasy Impact: Morgan was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice while dealing with a knee issue but was determined ready to go for Thursday’s game. Morgan has 15 tackles and 0.5 in nine games this season.
