The Titans beat writer for the Tennessean, Jim Wyatt, decided to show off his projections for Fantasy owners for some relevant Tennessee players this season in Kendall Wright, Bishop Sankey, Delanie Walker and Justin Hunter.

Here's how his projections compare to mine and Dave Richard for each guy.

For Wright, Wyatt has him with 88 catches, 1,360 yards and eight touchdowns. I have Wright at 88 catches for 1,085 yards and five touchdowns. Dave has Wright with 89 catches for 1,008 yards and five touchdowns.

Comment: Wright is a breakout candidate for me in his third year. I hope Wyatt's numbers come to fruition because Fantasy owners drafting him with a mid-round pick will be rewarded in a big way.

For Sankey, Wyatt has him with 980 rushing yards and five touchdowns and 24 catches for 242 yards and two touchdowns. I have Sankey at 1,221 rushing yards and six touchdowns and 38 catches for 292 yards and one touchdown. Dave has Sankey at 1,157 rushing yards and five touchdowns and 31 catches for 260 yards and one touchdown.

Comment: Dave and I clearly like Sankey a little better than Wyatt does, but his projections still suggest a solid rookie season as a No. 2 Fantasy running back. I'd target Sankey in Round 3 with the hope of getting him in Round 4.

For Walker, Wyatt has him with 62 catches for 646 yards and five touchdowns. I have Walker for 57 catches, 587 yards and six touchdowns. Dave has Walker for 59 catches, 624 yards and six touchdowns.

Comment: Wyatt's projections are similar to ours, and we both consider Walker a No. 2 Fantasy tight end this season. He's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues but can be a solid bye-week replacement.

And for Hunter, Wyatt has him with 44 catches for 690 yards and seven touchdowns. I have Hunter at 42 catches for 715 yards and five touchdowns. Dave has Hunter at 42 catches for 690 yards and five touchdowns.

Comment: I like Hunter as a sleeper in his second year. He should keep Nate Washington on the bench, and he's a great late-round flier in all formats.
