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.

 


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.

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."
