Titans expect Marcus Mariota to run more this year

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Titans HC Mike Mularkey has talked most of the offseason about getting Marcus Mariota running much more in his second NFL season.

The Titans plan to run the ball much more in 2016 after trading for DeMarco Murray and drafting Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry out of Alabama.

Fantasy Impact: 

Mariota, the No. 2 pick of the 2015 draft and a Heisman winner, ran for 2,237 yards in his career at Oregon and will be a big part of that after running only 34 times as a rookie. The quarterback took off on two designed runs during a team period Sunday, and Mularkey said they will plan accordingly against the defenses they play while trying to avoid leaving a defender unblocked, the story said.
