Dorial Green-Beckham stumbled, but he got up.
The Titans believe the way the rookie receiver responded to Sunday’s in-game adversity could go a long way in his development.
“That monster came out in him, and everybody finally got to see it,’’ receiver Kendall Wright said of Green-Beckham. “And the more his confidence rolls, the more he’ll be unstoppable.”
Green-Beckham had five catches for 119 yards in a 42-39 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. He provided a highlight-reel play at the start of the fourth quarter when he caught a pass across the middle from quarterback Marcus Mariota, and then raced 47 yards for a touchdown.
What the Titans liked most about it: The play came after Green-Beckham made a big mistake. He let a catchable ball go through his hands earlier, and the pass was instead intercepted.
Green-Beckham has made some other mistakes recently that also led to turnovers and the team came out and said he needed to improve his patterns. Seems like he may be on his way and may be worth a stash if he's still on the wire, especially in deeper leagues.
