Titans backs tough to rely on for Week 8
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With Shonn Greene expected back in the fold for Week 8 against the Texans, Fantasy owners should probably try to avoid relying on anyone in the Titans backfield for this Sunday's game.

Greene and Bishop Sankey will likely split carries this week, a setup that didn't really work out for either of them in the team's first five games before Greene's injury. Greene averaged just 4.8 Fantasy points per game in that span, while Sankey was putting up 3.8 before the injury.

The Titans' backs do have a good matchup for Week 8, with the Texans allowing 18.9 Fantasy points per game so far. Still, even with a solid matchup, we have too little track record of success to think either player is worth relying on here.

TItans unveil injury report for Houston game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Titans quarterback Jake Locker was a full participant in practice Friday and will be probable for Week 8 against the Texans. Locker will likely serve as a backup to Zach Mettenberger on Sunday.

Coty Sensabaugh (knee) and Taylor Thompson (knee) were labeled doubtful, while Quentin Groves (ankle) was deemed questionable. Meanwhile, Shonn Greene (hamstring) and Ropati Pitoitua (hand) were ruled probable, along with Locker.

Titans RB Shonn Greene on track to return Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Titans running back Shonn Greene was officially ruled probable for Week 8 against Houston after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury, the Tennessean reports. Greene has 44 carries for 190 yards and a touchdown this season. Bishop Sankey started while Green was sidelined, so it remains uncertain how coach Ken Whisenhunt will use both backs Sunday.

Titans new QB Mettenberger hardly lacking confidence
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

New Titans starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger boasts confidence bordering on cockiness. And it has crossed that border since Thursday, when he addressed the media after the announcement.

"I absolutely believe this is my team now," he said via The Tennessean. "This is what you dream of. I have been preparing and anticipating this happening since the day I got drafted. That was my mindset since Day 1, to be the starter."

Titans left tackle, fellow rookie and close friend Taylor Lewan likes that mindset.

"I think he has one of those, 'I don't care' attitudes," Lewan said. 'I'm going to throw darts the whole time.' And that's awesome. That's how a quarterback should be. He'll sit in the pocket, take a hit, and he'll get right back up and get in the guy's face, and I love it."

Mettenberger opened some eyes with a strong preseason in which he passed for 659 yards and two touchdowns while compiling a 97.6 passer rating.

Delanie Walker could use a change
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In Weeks 1-4, with Jake Locker primarily under center for the Titans, tight end Delanie Walker averaged 5.5 catches for 79.3 yards with three touchdowns. But the more backup Charlie Whitehurst saw of him, the less he liked. Whitehurst did fine with Walker in Week 4, but in Weeks 5-7, Walker averaged just 3.0 catches for 40.3 yards.

So if you own Walker in Fantasy, you can only be encouraged by the Titans' change at quarterback for Week 8 against Houston, even if it's not the one you wanted. Locker is healthy again, but rookie Zach Mettenberger will get the start.

Granted, such an inexperienced and unheralded quarterback generally isn't good for anyone on the receiving end, but that's not always true for a tight end, who often becomes a security blanket underneath. Of course, despite ranking 26th against the pass, the Texans have allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to tight ends, so that may not be the case for Walker in this one.

It's a coin flip whether or not you start him in Week 8. Tight end isn't the deepest position, and most likely, you won't want to roster two. For what it's worth, though, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Walker outside of their top 12 for this week.
