If you're curious about how the Tennessee Titans are viewed in fantasy football, I surveyed some of the top fantasy sites to see how the experts ranked the Titans at their respective positions, how they ranked them overall, and what the average draft positions were. Following are the results of the survey, after the jump.
RB Chris JohnsonExpert ranking: standard leagues - 1st round, PPR - 1st roundAverage Draft Position: standard - 1st round, PPR - 1st round(Ten picks per round used in this exercise.)CJ is ranked as a top-ten overall pick but he's no longer a top-five back. Arian Foster, Ray Rice, LeSean McCoy, Ryan Mathews and Maurice Jones Drew (despite his holdout) are all ahead of CJ in most rankings. CJ is ranked about the same as Darren McFadden on some sites and I personally wouldn't take CJ as my RB1 with so many good RBs ahead of him and so many other backs (Marshawn Lynch, DeMarco Murray, Matt Forte and Trent Richardson) who you can get in round 2.

BEST OF MAXIM
Coming off a 9-7 mark in head coach Mike Munchaks inaugural season, the Tennessee Titans have every reason to expect improvement in 2012 except for one key factor.
The Titans face a murderous schedule, especially out of the gate when they face three teams that qualified for the playoffs in 2011 in their first four games and the other is on the road against one of the NFLs better...
According to the Nashville Tennessean, Titans linebacker Akeem Ayers will line up as a pass rusher regularly this season. The 2011 2nd round pick has spent the offseason working out with pass rush technique specialist Keith Millard. At 6-3 254, with good athleticism, he has all the tools to be a pass rusher and was noted for his above average blitzing ability coming out of UCLA last...
Titans’ receiver Kenny Britt did not have a good week. First, he underwent knee surgery on his left knee, after previously having 2 knee surgeries on his right knee in a 10 month period. The knee surgery was minor as shouldn’t cause him to miss any time, though another procedure like that is hardly good news. What could cause him to miss time is the fact that he was also arrested...
I put off a discussion of Kendall Wright when I wrote about Greg Cosell's comments on the Titans' draft picks, but now it's time to talk about those comments with a focus on what Wright might mean to the Titans' offense.First, Kenny Britt's arrest inconveniently complicates matters. A passing offense with Britt, Wright, and Nate Washington looks and functions...
The word "if" is a concept utilized often in sports dissertation. If Bob Sanders could stay healthy, he'd be one of the best safeties in NFL history. If Tony Romo could improve his pocket administration, the Cowboys would be a perennial Super Bowl contender. If Kenny Britt could just stay out of trouble...
Unfortunately, most "if" abstractions are rarely...
After last week's mostly offense-focused posting, it's time to look at the other side of the ball. Later this week, I'll write a couple posts taking a more in-depth look at Akeem Ayers, but first I wanted to write about new defensive end Kamerion Wimbley. I wrote a little about his ability when he signed with the Titans, but it's worth taking a more in-depth look...
