Justin Hunter a sleeper candidate
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Titans second-year receiver Justin Hunter enters this season as a sleeper candidate, and he could be even better than we expect.

The Titans beat writer for the Tennessean, Jim Wyatt, shared his projections for Hunter this season. He has Hunter with 44 catches for 690 yards and seven touchdowns.

Justin Hunter compared to Randy Moss
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Titans receiver Michael Preston said teammate Justin Hunter has the potential to develop like Randy Moss.

"I know how great a player Randy Moss was, and in my mind, there's no reason Justin can't be the next greatest player," Preston told the Tennessean. "I just want to be there to support him. I know he's going to grow, make a great leap this year, and impress the city and fans with his talent."

Preston said Hunter's leaping ability makes him special.

"The one thing that stands out to me is the way he attacks the ball – and his leaping ability," Preston said. "Of course, he has to make the same type adjustments I had to make with height, staying low and being physical at the line. But the thing that stands out is the way he attacks the ball and how he's able to make that big play at any moment."

Hunter averaged 19.7 yards on his 18 catches last year.

Justin Hunter showing flashes
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Titans offensive coordinator Jason Michael likes what he sees from second-year receiver Justin Hunter, reports the team's official website.

"(Hunter) has shown flashes of making plays," Michael said. "He's a big, long receiver that’s still growing into the position. As coaches, we've got to keep pushing him to make those next steps. The sky’s the limit there."

Justin Hunter continues to generate buzz
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Titans receivers coach Shawn Jefferson told USA Today that Justin Hunter can be a difference maker. "With the growth he is going to go through, if he can keep progressing he can be the receiver that puts us over the edge," Jefferson said.

"He has that much potential. He has great ability, and has gotten bigger. But keep in mind this is just his second season in the league and he is learning his second offense. He is coming on, but he has to keep working. I like the course he is on."

Hunter averaged 19.7 yards per catch on 18 receptions last season, scoring four touchdowns.

Justin Hunter: Things should be easier for me
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Titans receiver Justin Hunter has added an impressive 15 pounds of mass this offseason so he can better hold up on the field. But that's not all he's done -- Hunter has been raising his own expectations after playing without a firm grasp of the offense last year. 

"Sometimes I would look at it and be like 'What am I doing out there?'" Hunter said Thursday per The Tennessean. "A year older and a year wiser, things should be a lot easier for me this year, and a lot better."

Hunter admitted he was "playing catch-up the whole way" after missing OTAs last spring after getting hurt. But with his first season in the rear view, Titans GM Ruston Webster believes the best is yet to come. 

"I think Justin has probably only scratched the surface and he should only get better," Webster said. "He just needs to continue to improve his overall game, from his route running to his catching to his blocking. He is still a very young player."
