The Tennessee Titans may have been the most average team in the NFL last season while finishing 9-7 in a rather lackluster AFC South Division. Head Coach Mike Munchak leads a young and dynamic offense which has fans and critics wondering if they have enough experience to make a run at the division.

GOTTA HAVE THEM (Elite Category – These guys are must have for any fantasy team)
RB Chris Johnson (2011 Finish: 16th ranked RB at 9.8 points per game)
At 26 which is not old, but by no means young at the position either, Johnson remains one of the fastest players in the league. I’m ready to chalk up a disappointing 2011 campaign which included only four touchdowns to the lengthy ...

Back when we did the offseason round of positional analysis, Andrew was kind enough to write up our look at the running back position. Had that been my task, you would've ended up with a lot of words like "!%#!#" and ^!#$%" as I got progressively more annoyed while writing the piece and remembering the 2011 season. By now, though, it's been weeks since I&...
