I love…the idea of Jackie Battle at fullback

When the Tennessee Titans have had the personnel to do so, I’ve long clamored for a bigger running back to be shifted to fullback. Even with LenDale White and Chris Johnson, I thought that a one-two punch in the backfield could be terrifying for opposing defenses. If said running back that’s being shifted to fullback can block, you’re losing virtually nothing from lining up...

Twitter Tuesday: Jackie Battle to be used at fullback

In recent years, the Tennessee Titans lacked a vision of how to alter the offensive game plan to throw defenses off. They ran the same bland scheme, focusing on pounding the ball without the personnel to do so, and couldn’t develop any sort of consistency in moving the ball. We’re not even a week into organized team activities and new head coach Ken Whisenhunt is already showing...

NFL fines Jackie Battle $21,000

Titans running back Jackie Battle has been fined $21000 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness after the league ruled he struck an opponent with his helmet on a run play. Battle has already appealed the fine. He wondered if the league might be trying to make an example of him because the fine is so high and he’s a first time offender. “They said I hit him with the crown of my...

Jackie Battle Lands in San Diego

The San Diego Chargers have signed running back Jackie Battle. Contract terms were not disclosed. Fantasy Spin: Battle is built like a tank at 6-2, 239 pounds, but his size did not translate to great power on the NFL gridiron, as he averaged a measly 3.8 yards per carry over his career with Kansas City. Ronnie Brown shall remain the preferred handcuff for Ryan Mathews in fantasy drafts.
