News: Hunter (knee) had four catches on a team-high 10 targets for 64 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Eagles.
Impact: Hunter's touchdown, his third of the season, was a bit flukey, as the pass should have been picked off, but bounced off a defensive back's hands and right into Hunter's hands as he was in stride toward the end zone. The 10 targets were certainly encouraging and up next is a Week 13 matchup against a Texans defense allowing the second-most passing yards per game this season.
News: Greene had six carries for 15 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Eagles.
Impact: Bishop Sankey continues to lead the backfield, though his 10 carries for 37 yards were hardly impressive. In addition, Sankey lost a fumble, and Greene scored on a two-yard run in the second quarter, showing that he's very much in a vulture-role near the goal-line. Greene's fantasy upside is therefore very dependent on scoring touchdowns, something that isn't likely to happen unless the Titans get in close. Up next is a Week 13 matchup against a Texans defense that has allowed only five rushing touchdowns this season.
News: Sankey had 10 carries for 37 rushing yards and two catches on three targets for 14 receiving yards, but he also lost a fumble during Sunday's 43-24 loss to the Eagles.
Impact: Sankey finished with four more carries and 22 more rushing yards than backup Shonn Greene, but his fumble was costly and Greene picked up a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Sankey still seems to be the leader for carries, but if he can't hold onto the football, Greene is going to keep chipping away at his touches. Up next is a Week 13 matchup against a Texans defense much better against the run than the pass.
News: Walker (concussion) had five catches on nine targets for a season-high 155 yards Sunday against the Eagles.
Impact: Walker suffered a concussion in Week 10 against the Ravens and was held out in Week 11 against the Steelers, but he stormed back with his highest yardage total of the season Sunday. Only wideout Justin Hunter (10) finished with more targets, and Walker could keep the the fine play going, as the Titans will face off against a Texans defense in Week 13 that is allowing the second-most passing yards per game this season.
News: Mettenberger completed 20-of-39 passes for a career-high 345 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Eagles.
Impact: Mettenberger connected with seven different receivers, throwing touchdowns to wideout Justin Hunter and running back Dexter McCluster. Hunter's touchdown was lucky not to be picked off, as the ball was tipped by a defensive back and landed in Hunter's hands, as he was running full stride toward the end zone. Mettenberger has now thrown for two touchdowns in three of four games as the starter, though he's also turned the ball over five times in that span. Up next is a promising matchup against a Texans defense allowing the second-most passing yards per game this season.
News: Wreh-Wilson (back) is officially inactive for Sunday's game at Philadelphia.
Impact: Wreh-Wilson has been fairly productive on the year with 50 total tackles and one interception, but he is not available for IDP consideration today. Coty Sensabaugh should step into the starting lineup.
