Justin Hunter struggles again in Week 3 loss vs. Bengals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter caught just three of his seven targets for 37 yards in his team's 33-7 loss to the Bengals in Week 3.

Hunter has received 21 targets over his first three games, but he's only managed to record eight receptions for 126 receiving yards and no touchdowns. He managed to put his team in field-goal range with his first reception in the second quarter Sunday, but the eventual attempt missed wide right. Three of his four incomplete targets came during the team's final drive of the fourth quarter. Hunter will look for his first breakout performance of the season when the Titans face the Colts in Week 4.


Justin Hunter called out by head coach


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Titans receiver Justin Hunter was called out by his head coach Thursday, according to ESPN.

On his weekly radio show, Ken Whisenhunt talked about how disappointed he was in the team's wide receivers, particularly Hunter. "Justin didn’t have the greatest game last week," Whisenhunt said. "And I think those corners were a little bit more physical with him. The one he had, the long one down the sideline, he’s got to make that catch."

Whisenhunt went on to say the club has high expectations for Hunter. Overall, he said the team was encouraged by Hunter's skill set, but that Hunter still needs to refine some aspects of his game. 


Justin Hunter still working on rapport with QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) After a very productive preseason, Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter has gotten off to a slow start through two games, despite 14 targets. He has just five catches for 89 yards.

Hunter said he is still working on building rapport with quarterback Jake Locker, per The Tennessean.

"It takes time because I didn't have him all year last year with him being hurt, so we still have to get into rhythm with one another," Hunter said. "But we're working on that during practice and everything, so we're getting used to each other. It's going to show up."

Hunter showed a great feel for the fade pattern during training camp and the preseason, but the Titans haven't used it much through two weeks.

"No, not yet, but you can still look for it," Hunter said. "The time will come, just game-planning and everything. "People do expect that when you get to the goalline because my frame is so big. So you've got to do other things, too. You just can't keep doing the same thing over and over."


Justin Hunter can't do much with six targets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter was targeted six times Sunday against the Cowboys, which was the second-most on the team behind tight end Delanie Walker's 14 targets. However, unlike Walker -- who totaled 142 yards and one touchdown on 10 catches -- Hunter could only manage two catches for 26 yards in a Week 2 loss.

Hunter's longest catch went 23 yards. The Titans are back in action Week 3 at Cincinnati.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Justin Hunter should go Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Justin Hunter upgraded to full practice Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) The Titans listed wide receiver Justin Hunter (knee) as a full participant in practice Thursday, which was in contradiction to an earlier report from The Tennessean that Hunter was limited for a second straight day. The Titans host the Cowboys Week 2.

Justin Hunter limited again Thursday

Justin Hunter dealing with minor knee injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter was limited in practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious, according to The Tennessean. The Titans are preparing to play the Cowboys Week 2.

Justin Hunter totals three catches Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker tried a few times to connect with second-year receiver Justin Hunter on big plays down the field Week 1 at Kansas City. However, Hunter would finish with just three catches during a 26-10 win.

Hunter did finish with a team-high 63 receiving yards, which included a 39-yard catch, but he only caught three of a team-high high targets in the win.

He also gave the Titans a bit of a scare in the second quarter when his leg got caught underneath a defender after a 9-yard catch that put Tennessee at the Chiefs' 2-yard line. Though, Hunter was back on the field for the next series and avoided any serious injury.

The Titans are back in action Week 2 against the Cowboys.


Justin Hunter heads into Week 1 as sleeper start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Many Fantasy owners are eager to see how Titans second-year receiver Justin Hunter fares in the season opener at Kansas City since he was a pretty popular sleeper pick Draft Day. It's not hard to understand why after Hunter led the Titans with 217 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the preseason.

Hunter didn't have a great rookie season in 2013, totaling just 18 catches for 354 yards. But he had four touchdowns and came on late in the year with a pair of 100-yard games in his last five appearances. Hunter showed some of that big-play ability again in the preseason.

Wide receivers had pretty good success against Kansas City last year. Wide receivers averaged 24.2 Fantasy points per week against the Chiefs, which included a playoff game against the Colts. Wide receivers averaged 190.2 receiving yards and totaled 16 receiving touchdowns.

Hunter has the chance to develop into a reliable Fantasy option, but heading into Week 1 he is more of a sleeper start.


Justin Hunter basically unstoppable on fades


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Titans receiver Justin Hunter is making the fade pattern "look all too easy," reports the Tennessean. When the team get near the goal line, Jake Locker lofts a pass toward the corner of the end zone and "the 6-4, 203-pound Hunter turns into the Titans' version of a jack-in-the-box, leaping over defenders to haul in a touchdown pass – just as he did in Friday's loss to the Saints," the paper said.

"He's so big and so long, and he has the ability to jump and he has such a big catch radius," Locker told the paper. "You're able to put the ball a lot of places to give him a chance. That puts a lot of pressure on the defense at that point."

Hunter beat the Chargers with a leaping 34-yard touchdown catch in the closing seconds last year. He's looking for a lot more opportunities in the end zone this season.

"They want to use my big frame, so they throw it to me there," Hunter said. "The cornerback has to turn his back at some point to try to defend me. That's when I can use my leaping ability to go over the top of him – before he gets a chance to figure it out."

Justin Hunter provides 'a glimpse' of what he can do


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt is seeing growth from second-year receiver Justin Hunter, who caught four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns against the Saints. ESPN.com reports the 6-4 Hunter "showed off the leaping ability that can make him practically impossible to defend."

"I think you’re seeing just a glimpse of what he can be, but because of what he did last night, let’s not make the mistake and think he’s, by any stretch, close to what he can be," Whisenhunt said. "There are a lot of things, from route depth to discipline on his releases, where even though he made some big plays last night, those have got to become more consistent.

"So he’s still got a lot of work to do. I’m excited for two things: No. 1 because he can make those big plays; and No. 2, because he seems to have the right mindset to work on those two things. Part of being a young player is you’ve got to be able to do that yourself. Right now, he has to be reminded at times to do that. Not from a negative standpoint, just because there is a lot going on.

"I’m seeing growth, we’ve just got to continue to see that."

Justin Hunter scores twice, cracks 100-yard mark in preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter made his presence felt with a 100-yard Friday night against the Saints in preseason action.

Hunter hauled in a 4-yard touchdown strike from Jake Locker on the opening drive of the game. He followed that up with a 64-yard touchdown pass from Zach Mettenberger in the second quarter. He was targeted five times and finished with four catches for a team-high 111 yards and two touchdowns.

Justin Hunter listed as backup


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Titans released a depth chart showing Kendall Wright and Nate Washington as the starting wideouts, with breakout candidate Justin Hunter on the second team. Hunter averaged 19.7 yards per catch and scored four touchdowns in limited work last year.

Justin Hunter a sleeper candidate


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) 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.

To see how his projections compare to mine and Dave Richard, check out this Fantasy Football Today blog here.


Justin Hunter compared to Randy Moss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) 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
(6/26/2014) 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
(6/6/2014) 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
(5/2/2014) 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."


Justin Hunter adds 15 pounds


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Titans receiver Justin Hunter has bulked up to 208 pounds, 15 pounds more than he was last year, reports the Tennessean. Hunter came on strong at the end of last season and had four touchdowns among his 18 catches.

Whisenhunt weighs Justin Hunter as 'interesting' player


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt said second-year receiver Justin Hunter needed to put on "a little more weight" in order to break out in 2014, then added he was just kidding. Hunter is someone Whisenhunt certainly has an eye on as a potential major contributor. 

"I liked Justin coming out last year, so I'm excited to work with him," Whisenhunt said from the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando. "He made a catch against [the Chargers] at the end of a game [last year]. I hated it at the time but I love it now. He's an interesting young player."

Hunter is indeed interesting -- despite catching just 18 passes last year he had 354 yards (a 19.7 avg.) and four touchdowns. 


Justin Hunter again a non-factor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter, who was inactive for Week 15 for violating team rules, was active for Week 16 at Jacksonville, but he might as well not have been. He didn't contribute statistically, receiving only one target.

Of course, the Titans passing game as a whole wasn't much of a factor in this one, with running backs Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene combining for 41 carries for 181 yards, but wide receiver Nate Washington was again the go-to guy for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, catching six passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. Hunter had a claim to that role as recently as Week 14, when he caught four passes for 114 yards and a touchdown at Denver.

The Titans host the Texans in Week 17.


Titans two wideouts will return to game action Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Mike Munchak said Wednesday that Titans wide receivers Justin Hunter and Damian Williams, who were suspended by the team for the Week 15 game due to a unidentified rules violation, will play Sunday at Jacksonville.

Report: Justin Hunter, Damian Williams violated team rules


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Titans wideouts Justin Hunter and Damian Williams were inactive Week 15 because they violated team rules, reports ESPN.com.

"They broke some team rules," coach Mike Munchak said, per the website. "The consequence was that they didn't suit up today."

In their absence, Michael Preston caught two touchdown passes and Kenny Britt had three receptions.
