Fantasy Impact: It's quite a fall from grace for Marcus Mariota, who was benched mid-game against the Broncos despite throwing only his first two interceptions of the season in the game. Tannehill performed admirably in relief on Sunday, completing 13-of-16 passes for 144 yards with an interception. But he's relevant only as a bye-week replacement in two-quarterback leagues for now.


Darius Jennings failed to catch either of his two targets on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Broncos by a 16-0 score.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings is an afterthought in the Titans offense and has just two catches on six targets over the first six games of the season. Jennings is not worth owning in fantasy and can be left on the waiver wire by owners.

Cody Parkey did not attempt a field goal or extra point as the Titans were shut out by the Broncos by a 16-0 score on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Parkey was picked up before the Week 6 game after the team released Cairo Santos who struggled in his stint with the Titans. As fantasy owners can already see, Parkey will struggle to see scoring opportunities with the Titans offense and should be left on the waiver wire.

The Titans D/ST gave up just one touchdown on Sunday but the team still lost to the Broncos by a 16-0 score in Week 6 action.

Fantasy Impact: The Titans defense had one interception, one sack and three tackles for losses against the Broncos. The team plays the Chargers at home in Week 7 and the D/ST is not worth starting in standard fantasy leagues.

Jonnu Smith caught one pass on two targets for eight yards on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Broncos by a 16-0 score.

Fantasy Impact: Smith now has six catches on nine targets over six games for the Titans. And playing behind veteran Delanie Walker a tight end it does not look those numbers will increase dramatically any time soon. Smith is not worth owning in fantasy.

Tajae Sharpe did not catch his only target on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Broncos by a 16-0 score in Week 6 action.

Fantasy Impact: Sharpe has fallen to fourth on the depth chart at receiver for the Titans. The 24-year-old has only seen two targets over the last three games and it does not look like his usage will increase. Sharpe should be on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Dion Lewis ran one time for a loss of one yard and caught all three of his targets for 20 yards as the Titans lost to the Broncos by a 16-0 score on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis continues to have little involvement in the Titans' offensive game plan. He's now picked up four or fewer touches in four of the six games this season. Lewis can be left on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Adam Humphries caught all six of his targets for 47 yards as the Titans lost to the Broncos by a 16-0 score in Week 6 action.

Fantasy Impact: Humphries now has 21 catches on 27 targets through six weeks. The 26-year-old free-agent pickup in the offseason has not had an impact on the offense that was expected which is not surprising being a ball-control team. Humphries can be left on the waiver wire.

Delanie Walker hauled in three catches for 43 yards on five targets Sunday in the Titans’ Week 6 loss to Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Walker looked like he was in a for a big year with 17 catches and two touchdowns after the first three games of the season. But over the next three, the veteran tight end has just five catches. Walker has been dealing with some injuries so that may be the cause of his lack of production. For now, fantasy owners should be benching him.

A.J. Brown caught two passes on four targets for 23 yards on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Broncos by a 16-0 score.

Fantasy Impact: Brown looked like he was about to break out after scoring two touchdowns and picking up 94 receiving yards in Week 4. But the rookie plays for the Titans a team that does not pass the ball often which means it will be hard for Brown to see enough targets to be worth owning in anything but deeper leagues.

Corey Davis caught three passes on five targets for 36 yards on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Broncos in Week 6 action.

Fantasy Impact: Davis continues to struggle to see targets as the Titans struggle in the passing game. The third-year receiver is averaging under five targets a game this season and unless the team changes their philosphy it is hard to see Davis getting enough production to be worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Derrick Henry totaled 28 yards on 15 carries while adding one catch for five yards on three targets Sunday in Tennesee’s Week 6 loss to Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Henry was shut down like the rest of the Titans offense averaging just 1.9 yards a carry. Henry is a key part of the offense and look for the team to try to get him going against the Chargers in Week 7. Henry should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Mariota had only completed 7-of-18 passes for 63 yards and two interceptions in the third quarter before HC Mike Vrabel decided to put in Tannehill and give his team a chance to stay in the game. After also struggling against Buffalo last week, it would not be a shock to see Mariota on the sidelines for the Titans' Week 6 game against the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Santos had a disastrous day and cost the Titans a chance at victory. The Titans have decided to move on from Santos after this disastrous outing and will look to sign a kicker this week. Santos was 4-for-9 from field goal range with 12 extra points made this season.

Logan Ryan had a solid afternoon, finishing with seven solo tackles, two assisted tackles, a sack, a TFL, and two QB hits.

Fantasy Impact: While Ryan and the Titans D did a good job holding the Bills O to only 14 points, their efforts were in vain, as the Titans offense only scored seven points. Tennessee will try to bounce back against the Denver Broncos next Sunday.

Taywan Taylor was traded to the Browns on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Taylor a former third round pick in 2017 had fallen on the depth chart on the Titans behind Corey Davis, Adam Humphries A. J. Brown and Tajae Sharpe. It looks like he may end up fourth or fifth in the pecking order at receiver for the Browns and will not see enough targets to be fantasy relevant.

Jeremy McNichols was released by the Titans on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Fantasy Impact: A fifth-round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2017 draft, McNichols has yet to be able to find a role with a team having cups of coffee with the 49ers and Colts before getting picked up by the Titans this offseason. McNichols will look to catch on with another team but may end up on someone's practice squad.


The Titans sign center Ben Jones to a two-year, $13.5 million contract extension. Jones hasn’t missed a game in five consecutive seasons, and currently leads all centers with an 80-game starting streak. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Jones has had four rushers achieve at least 1,000 yards behind him and his regimes. If you’re a Derrick Henry or Dion Lewis owner, this is good news.

The Titans cut Alex Barnes on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Barnes was a rookie free agent out of Kansas State who made a good impression with the Titans but got caught in a numbers game. Expect Barnes to land on the team's practice squad.


Ryan Succop made both of his field-goal attempts but did miss one of his two extra-point attempts in the team's preseason finale against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Succop looks healthy and ready to go after having off season knee surgery. The Titans look like they will have a conservative offensive approach once again this season and may struggle to score points which will limit the value of Succop.
