Dexter McCluster expects big role
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Titans running back Dexter McCluster is expecting a big role this year, reports the Tennessean.

"I see myself running a lot, and that's what has me most excited right now," McCluster said. "I'm ready to get back out there and see how things unfold."

McCluster is expected to work in committee with Bishop Sankey and Shonn Greene, but he could be the change-of-pace rusher and catch passes out of the backfield.

"I guess it was based on everything I did in OTAs," McCluster said. "I did pretty much everything, but I was more excited about how much I've been running the ball."

How many times per game does McCluster expect to carry the ball this season?

"I don't know. I joked around all last year (with the Chiefs), saying, 'Hey, coach, just give me my 10 (carries) and I can make something happen,'" McCluster said. "But really, I'll take as many as I can."

Titans could use committee approach in backfield
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though rookie running back Bishop Sankey is expected to "be the busiest back this season in terms of carries and production" for the Titans, the team could still use a running back by committee approach, reports the Tennessean.

The report says Sankey will share playing time with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster. The Titans want Greene to be their power back in goal-line and short-yardage situations, and McCluster has to prove he's more than a specialty back and pass catcher.

The Tennessean recently projected Sankey for more than 1,200 total yards and seven touchdowns. Based on those projections, Sankey would have finished as a Top 20 Fantasy running back in 2013.

Walker fond of Dexter McCluster
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Titans tight end Delanie Walker expects to see new running back Dexter McCluster making plays this season, reports ESPN.

"He's the Swiss Army knife now for this team," Walker said of McCluster. "He can play multiple positions, and I think you’re going to see Dexter moving around making great plays for us."

McCluster is expected to be used in a Danny Woodhead-like role for the Titans based on new head coach Ken Whisenhunt, who was the offensive coordinator in San Diego last season.

TItans GM: We're looking for a three-down back
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Titans plan to add a running back in the draft to team with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster, and general manager Ruston Webster wants that pick to be an all-around back, reports ESPN.com. Tennessee released Chris Johnson on Friday.

"I think moving forward we're going to look for another back with just some all-around ability, with size and speed, some explosiveness and possibly one that could stay on the field all three downs," Webster said in a radio interview.
