Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans



Overall Outlook
The Titans, for the second straight offseason, have been a player in the free-agency market, signing Philips, McCluster and Woodyard this summer. Tennessee also has a new head coach in Ken Whisenhunt which should help Jake Locker improve his game. Unfortunately, the losses of Chris Johnson and Alterraun Verner may be a bit too much to overcome this year, but the Titans have the pieces in place for a playoff run in a year or two.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: DE/OLB Shaun Phillips, WR Dexter McCluster, ILB Wesley Woodyard, T Michael Oher, DE Al Woods
Key losses: RB Chris Johnson, CB Alterraun Verner, PK Rob Bironas, WR Kenny Britt, T David Stewart, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, WR Damian Williams

Offensive Outlook
The Titans offense has a bunch of unproven, but upside potential type of players. Justin Hunter has a ton of skill, and Bishop Sankey could be just the guy to replace CJ2K.  However, it all comes down to Locker staying healthy and producing. We see slight improvements, but nothing you can trust to win your league in 2014. 

Projections - 2014
QB1 - Jake Locker - Passing - 2600 yds / 18 tds  Rushing - 300 yds / 2 tds
RB1 - Bishop Sankey - Rushing - 800 yds / 3 tds  Receiving - 35 recs / 275 yds / 1 td
RB2 - Shonn Greene - Rushing - 600 yds / 5 tds  Receiving - 10 recs / 100 yds / 1 td
WR1 - Kendall Wright - Receiving - 85 recs / 1025 yds / 5 tds
WR2 - Justin Hunter - Receiving - 65 recs / 900 yds / 5 tds
WR3 - Nate Washington - Receiving - 35 recs / 400 yds / 2 tds
TE1 - Delanie Walker - Receiving - 55 recs / 600 yds / 4 tds

Defensive Outlook
Tennessee is switching to Ray Horton's 3-4 defense in 2014, and with the additions of Wesley Woodyard and Shaun Philips, we envision the team adjusting quickly to the new scheme.  The schedule also plays favorably for the Titans defense with matchups against Cleveland, Jacksonville x2, Houston x2, and the Giants and Jets at home. As for IDP players, we predict Woodyard, Brown, Pollard and McCourty to be startable in some capacity in 2014.

DE2 - Ropati Pitoitua - 40 total Ts / 3 sacks / 1 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
