Dexter McCluster's versatility will get him on the field

Titans Online - [Full Article]

Titans beat writer Mike Keith was asked which offseason acquisition is the greatest asset on offense. If draft picks were included, he would have said Bishop Sankey, but since they aren't technically acquisition, he named free agent RB Dexter McCluster:

"He can run the ball. He can catch the ball. He will block. He can run back kicks and punts. He can line up at tailback, at slot receiver or at wide receiver. McCluster’s versatility makes him a weapon. He worries the other team the moment that he steps onto the field, meaning that other Titans on offense will benefit from his presence.

"And McCluster gives you roster-flexibility on Sunday’s for your 46 active players. Down a running back due to injury? You got McCluster. Short a wideout? You got McCluster. Need an extra defensive lineman for a particular game? Because McCluster plays multiple positions and runs back kicks, you can go without an extra offensive player and keep an extra defensive lineman active. "

Fantasy Impact: 

McCluster could play the Danny Woodhead role in Ken Whisenhunt's offense, giving him spot starter potential, especially in PPR leagues.
