Hunter's previous low this season was a one-catch, 12-yard performance Week 4 against the Colts. He has just one touchdown and no 100-yard games in seven appearances.
The Titans are back in action Week 8 vs. Houston.
Hunter was stopped at the 1-yard line on a 22-yard reception, leaving him with one touchdown through six games. He visits the Redskins in Week 7.
Before last week's breakout performance, relying on anyone in the
Hunter and Wright entered Week 5 with just one combined double-digit Fantasy game between them, but both topped that level against the Browns. And though they may seem like flashes in the pan, they have a chance to keep up their production with the Jaguars on the schedule in Week 6. The Jaguars have allowed 26.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, including seven individual games of at least 8 Fantasy points in five contests.
Understand, neither Hunter nor Wright should be considered a slam dunk for this week's game, even with a solid matchup. The Titan's passing game has been erratic, and there are questions about who will start at quarterback, given Jake Locker's injury. However, if you need an injury or bye week fill-in, however, taking a chance on one of these guys may prove fruitful.
Granted, if you remove any player's biggest play from the equation, his line probably won't look so great, but for a player like Hunter, whose potential has long been unappreciated in Tennessee, a change in usage would count for more than a change in yardage. His five targets in Week 5 were actually a season low.
How much the change at quarterback impacted him is hard to say. Only one of those five targets came with Charlie Whitehurst under center, but it happened to be the 75-yard touchdown. A switch to a lesser quarterback is rarely good for a wide receiver's value, though, so if Jake Locker ends up missing time, that's just another reason to avoid Hunter in Fantasy.
That was about it for Hunter, though. He was blanked in the second half and finished with three receptions for 99 yards. He will attempt to contribute in both halves when his team hosts the Jaguars in Week 6.
