Titans HC Mike Mularkey has spoken highly of Dexter McCluster on numerous occasions this offseason.

“I think I’ve said it before: He clearly has a role here,’’ Mularkey said of McCluster. “The offense is multi-faceted, and he will be parts of many different packages to try and attack defenses.”

Fantasy Impact:

If McCluster has a sizable role in the passing game, it will put a dent in the upside of DeMarco Murray, who is a solid receiver out of the backfield.

David Cobb eyes more chances

Monday, November 23, 2015, 4:54pm - [Full Article]

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said he expects David Cobb will play more in upcoming games, beginning with Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

Antonio Andrews has been the workhorse for the Titans in recent weeks – he had 78 yards on 15 carries against the Jaguars – and Bishop Sankey is also expected to be active on Sunday with Dexter McCluster out with a knee injury.

Cobb said he’s looking forward to more chances, and for an opportunity to be more productive.

“The preseason is nothing like the regular season, and practice is nothing like a real game. Just getting my feet wet, it was good,’’ Cobb said. “I know they are not going to give me anything, so I have to go out and earn it. I have to go out and work hard and when I get opportunities I have to do well."

Fantasy Impact:

Cobb finished with four carries for minus-3 yards last week. He'll be a risky fantasy start until we start to see more of a workload.

Titans activate RB David Cobb off of injured reserve

Wednesday, November 11, 2015, 1:54pm - [Full Article]

The Titans announced that rookie running back David Cobb was activated off IR boomerang and added to the 53-man roster.

Practicing since last month, Cobb should see immediate snaps inside a backfield that has leaned hard on Antonio Andrews and Dexter McCluster ahead of Bishop Sankey.

Cobb showed flashes in the preseason as a hard-charging back who sheds tackles. The question today is whether he's in football shape and seen as a viable contributor. With the Titans clinging to life in the awful AFC South, Cobb's return still has meaning.

Fantasy Impact:

After a strong showing against the Saints, we expect Andrews to hold down RB1 duties for at least one more week. But Cobb's return certainly takes some wind out of his sails.

Titans Beat: Antonio Andrews needs to get the ball more

Monday, October 26, 2015, 12:15pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Rhythm at running back has been an issue for me all season. Terrance West remains the back who’s had the most carries in a game, with 13 on opening day in Tampa Bay.

Only twice in the entire game did Antonio Andrews stay on the field after a carry, as he was typically replaced by Dexter McCluster.

A 15-yard gain? To the bench. A seven-yard conversion? To the bench. A 10-yard gain? Yield to McCluster.

Andrews was excellent as a single back, lined up eight yards deep. That’s how six of his runs started, and those produced 53 yards. His four carries with a tight end or fullback in front of him produced four yards.

It was a very good showing by Andrews.

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans had West on the inactive list, but Andrews could soon face a challenge from rookie David Cobb, another strong back. Cobb is eligible to return to play on Nov. 8 in New Orleans after spending time on injured reserve. Cobb very well may be the type of runner the Titans give the ball more to, and is worth an add if you're struggling at the position, but right now the Titans seem happy with a rotation.
