Titans put Justin Hunter on IR with lacerated spleen


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) The Titans placed wideout Justin Hunter on season-ending injured reserve, reports The Tennessean. Hunter suffered a lacerated spleen in Sunday's loss to the Texans and remains in a Houston hospital, though he's expected to be released Wednesday.

The second-year pro finishes the year with 28 catches for 498 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games.


Titans WR Justin Hunter expected to be released from hospital soon


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter is doing well and is expected to be released from the hospital in the next day or so, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Hunter was taken to the hospital following Sunday's game against the Texans with a lacerated spleen. 


Report: Titans' Justin Hunter still in hospital with lacerated spleen


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Titans wideout Justin Hunter remains in a Houston hospital Monday receiving treatment for a lacerated spleen. According to the Tennessean, he could spent "a few days" there before rejoining the team in Tennessee.

Hunter left Week 13 against the Texans with what the team called a stomach injury after absorbing a brutal hit by Texans safety Danieal Manning. He returned to the game but the injury worsened in the second half and Hunter was taken to the hospital after coughing up blood on the sideline.

According to Pro Football Talk, the injury is not expected to require surgery, nor does it appear to be life-threatening.


Report: Titans WR Justin Hunter has lacerated spleen


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Titans wideout Justin Hunter will stay overnight in a Houston hospital after suffering a lacerated spleen in Sunday's loss at Houston, reports ESPN.com. Hunter stopped short on Zach Mettenberger's first pass and got decked by Texans safety Danieal Manning.

Although Hunter soon returned with what the team called a stomach injury, the injury worsened in the second half and Hunter was taken to the hospital, the report said.

"He came back in and played," coach Ken Whisenhunt told the website. "They thought he was OK, he came in and they checked him out. And then it got worse in the second half and that's why they are getting it checked out."

Titans wideout Nate Washington told The Tennessean that Hunter, who caught an 18-yard pass on three targets, was coughing up blood on the sideline.


Titans WR Justin Hunter taken to the hospital


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Titans wideout Justin Hunter was taken to the hospital after absorbing a hit to his abdomen in Sunday's loss to the Texans, Tennessee coach Ken Whisenhunt told WKRN-TV. Teammate Nate Washington said Hunter had internal bleeding and was coughing up blood on the sideline, according to The Tennessean.

Titans WR Justin Hunter may have mistimed his leaps vs. Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter appeared to have mistimed his leaps on several occasions during Sunday's game against the Eagles, according to the Tennessean.

"It sure looked that way a couple of times," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "That happens sometimes. But that's all part of growing and learning. He's a young receiver."

Hunter was targeted a team-high 10 times -- four more than his previous two games combined. He finished with four catches for 64 yards. One of his four grabs was a 40 yard touchdown reception in the second quarter of the 43-24 defeat.


Wacky day for Justin Hunter all around


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) To say Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter was just lucky Week 12 at Philadelphia wouldn't be entirely fair. He had 10 targets, most on the team and four more than in his previous two games combined. But then again, of his 64 yards, 40 of them came on his touchdown grab in the second quarter -- a pass that was intended for him, yes, but caught on a deflection.

Perhaps it wouldn't have made a difference -- the deflection didn't dramatically change the flight of the ball, and Hunter made an athletic play on it -- but because it wasn't a clean pitch and catch, I don't know that it's any kind of endorsement of he and rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger's rapport.

After all, he didn't do much with his other nine targets. And when he got 10 targets in Mettenberger's first start Week 8 against Houston, he caught just four of them for 31 yards.

Hunter certainly has big-play potential and may some day develop a good connection with Mettenberger, but this performance, even with all the targets and the touchdown, isn't enough to move the needle in Fantasy.


Titans WR Justin Hunter comes down with fourth TD reception


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter finished Sunday with only four grabs, but he made one of them count for six in his team's 43-24 defeat to Philadelphia in Week 12.

Hunter came down with a 40-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter for his third touchdown of the season. He was targeted a team-high 10 times and finished with four catches for 64 yards and a score. He has 27 catches for 480 yards on the season.

Hunter will look to add to his total in Week 13 against Houston.


Titans WR Justin Hunter, TE Delanie Walker ready to roll


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter and tight end Delanie Walker were both ruled active for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Walker was medically cleared by an independent neurologist earlier in the week and was not in danger of missing another game after suffering a concussion in Week 10. Hunter entered Sunday as questionable because of a knee injury.

Titans injury report includes four players listed questionable


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker is the only player on Tennessee's final injury report listed as probable for Week 12 against Houston. Walker is working his way back from a concussion he suffered Week 10 against the Ravens. He was medically cleared by an independent neurologist this week.

Meanwhile, Marqueston Huff (hamstring) was ruled as doubtful after missing practice all week. Justin Hunter (knee), Derrick Morgan (knee), Daimion Stafford (shoulder) and Blidi Wreh-Wilson were all deemed questionable.


Justin Hunter makes just two grabs on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Titans wideout Justin Hunter caught two passes for 48 yards in Monday's home loss to the Steelers. He was targeted four times, but failed to get his feet inbounds on one completion and slipped making a cut on another route. This was his fourth straight game with under 50 receiving yards.

Hunter visits the Eagles in Week 12.


Titans WR Justin Hunter held to one catch again Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter finished with one catch for 17 yards during a 21-7 loss Week 10 at Baltimore. He was targeted twice in the loss.

Hunter had a 36-yard reception early in the second quarter called back because of an offensive pass interference penalty. He has managed one catch three times this season, including twice in the last three games.

The Titans are back in action Week 11 vs. Pittsburgh.


How did Zach Mettenberger use his receivers?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Titans threw the ball surprisingly often in Week 8, as rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger put the ball in the air 41 times in his NFL debut against the Texans. That meant there were a lot of scoring opportunities to go around for Titans receivers.

Nate Washington and Kendall Wright led the way in the game, with 68 and 53 yards respectively, though neither player was near the team lead in targets in the game. It was actually Justin Hunter who led the team in that category, and despite hauling in just four passes for 31 yards, he also hauled in one of Mettenberger's scores.

This receiving trio has struggled with consistency given the team's quarterback issues, so it will be interesting to see how Mettenberger's ascension to the starting role impacts them. Given Sunday's usage, Hunter looks like he might be the player with the most upside out of the three, though we need to see more before considering any dependable Fantasy options. 


Titans WR Justin Hunter records late touchdown in Week 8 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter was Zach Mettenberger's favorite target during the rookie quarterback's first career start Week 8 against the Texans. Though, Hunter wasn't having a very strong afternoon before a late touchdown salvaged his day during a 30-16 loss.

Hunter was targeted a team-high 10 times, but he finished with just four catches for 31 yards. His longest catch was a 12-yard touchdown with 56 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

Hunter has two touchdowns in his last four games. The Titans are on a bye Week 9 before returning to action Week 10 at Baltimore.


New quarterback for Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) The good news for Titans wide receivers Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter in Week 8 is that they're facing the Texans, who rank 26th against the pass, allowing 268.7 yards per game, and have given up the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. The bad news for Wright and Hunter is that they'll be working with a rookie quarterback who'll be making his first NFL start.

Zach Mettenberger was only a sixth-round pick, but he's getting the start even though Jake Locker is set to return from a two-week absence for a thumb injury. Having Locker under center would have been a best-case scenario for Wright and Hunter. As it is, you shouldn't expect them to contribute much more than they did with Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback for most of the last three games.

Wright is probably the safer bet of the two because he's more of an underneath route runner. What he lacks in yardage he makes up for in catches, and unlike some players with a similar role, the Titans don't shy away from him in the red zone. Hunter, as more of a downfield threat, may have a harder time connecting with Mettenberger, so you'll want to sit him for now.


Justin Hunter has one-catch outing during Titans' Week 7 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter had his worst performance of the season during a 19-17 loss Week 7 at Washington. Hunter, who was targeted twice, was held to one catch for 6 yards -- both season lows.

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.


Justin Hunter goes for 77 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Titans big-play receiver Justin Hunter caught three passes for a team-high 77 yards in the Week 6 win over the Jaguars. Hunter drew five targets, which led Tennessee wideouts but ranked third on the team.

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.


Titans receivers hoping for an encore


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Before last week's breakout performance, relying on anyone in the Titans' receiving corps was likely to end in heartbreak. However, Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright broke out in Week 5, and will look to keep the good times coming in Week 6 against the Jaguars.

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. 


Big play not a game-changer for Justin Hunter


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter had his best game of the season Week 5 against Cleveland, but remove his 75-yard touchdown from the equation, and his performance looks about like all the others.

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.


Long TD highlights Sunday game for Titans WR Justin Hunter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter made his team's play of the day Sunday against Cleveland. He got well behind Browns cornerback Buster Skrine and gathered in a bomb from Charlie Whitehurst for a 75-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

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.


Report: Titans' Justin Hunter could move into starting lineup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Titans receiver Justin Hunter could overtake Nate Washington in the starting lineup, according to ESPN.

Hunter has been inconsistent this season, but the team has high expectations for the second round pick. Hunter has just nine receptions for 138 yards this year. He's been targeted 27 times. 


Coaches deny trade rumor involving Titans WR Justin Hunter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Ken Whisenhunt and Mike Pettine have denied trade rumors that have underperforming Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter heading to Cleveland.

"There's no basis for that," Whisenhunt told the Akron Beacon Journal.

Hunter has just nine catches for 138 yards and no touchdowns. He managed just one reception for 12 yards in Week 4. The Browns lost premier receiver Josh Gordon through Week 12 to a drug suspension, but have received strong production from Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin.


Coach not happy with Justin Hunter's performance


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter had another disappointing performance Week 4 at Indianapolis, and neither Hunter nor coach Ken Whisenhunt were pleased after the game. Hunter, who was targeted five times, finished with just one catch for 12 yards in a 41-17 loss.

Hunter's biggest gaffe in the game came on the team's second offensive drive when he allowed a pass from Charlie Whitehurst to bounce off his hands and the deflection was picked off by a Colts defender. 

After the game, Whisenhunt said Hunter and fellow wide receiver Kendall Wright, who fumbled on the first drive, let the team down, according to The Tennesseean. Whisenhunt added Hunter is going to be a good player, but he has to clear some hurdles.

"I am disgusted with myself. I have to play better," said Hunter, who has nine catches for 138 yards and no touchdowns in four games. 

The Titans are back in action Week 5 vs. Cleveland.


Titans receivers not worth your time until QB play improves


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Fantasy owners of any of the Titans' wide receivers have to be hoping Jake Locker returns soon, after the poor showing Charlie Whitehurst and Zach Mettenberger put up in Week 4.

Against the Colts, only Kendall Wright put together anything close to his usual numbers. And, frankly five catches for 55 yards isn't much to write home about. Justin Hunter and Nate Washington were limited to just one catch apiece, numbers that are sure to cause their Fantasy ownership numbers to continue to dwindle.

At this point, Delanie Walker is the only member of the Titans' receiving corps you want to be relying on. It will be hard to start Kendall Wright with Whitehurst throwing to him, and Hunter and Washington might not be worth owning at this point. 


Uncertainty makes Titans WR a bad play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, a sign of improvement from a wrist injury that had kept him out the previous two days. However, his availability is still in question for Week 4 against the Colts, and his potential absence casts a shadow of doubt over each one of his receiving options.

The Titans have thrown the ball plenty to their trio of wide receivers (15-plus targets for each through three games), but Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Nate Washington have all failed to really make an impact. And that was with Locker under center. For all of his faults, Locker has to be considered a better option that Charlie Whitehurst, who has not started a game since 2011 and has a career 5.2 yards-per-attempt mark under his belt.

You've likely been disappointed with the play of your Titans' receivers so far, assuming you haven't cut them yet. Given the uncertainty surrounding their quarterback spot, it is hard to see things getting much better in Week 4.
