Titans plan to use a committee at running back

The Tennesseean - [Full Article]

It will be running back by committee for the Titans. Shonn Greene returns, along with Jackie Battle and Leon Washington. Dexter McCluster was signed the first day of free agency, and though he was primarily a receiver/returner for much of his time with the Chiefs, the Titans plan to line him up at running back. More help is needed, however. Although there aren't any great free-agent options left, the Titans are likely to pick a running back in the May 8-10 draft. Fresh legs are desired.

Fantasy Impact:

McCluster will play the Danny Woodhead role in Ken Whisenhunt's offense, but we're not expecting Woodhead-type numbers. The Titans are not likely to be as good on that side of the ball as the Chargers were in 2013. McCluster may be usable as a spot starter in PPR formats.

Titans very likely to release RB Chris Johnson next week after failed trade attempts. Would draw strong interest as FA as DeSean Jackson did.

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson was linked to the Falcons by some Titans beat writers. Shonn Greene and Jackie Battle are next up on the Titans depth chart.

The Titans have agreed to terms with RB Jackie Battle, per sources. He'll be back in 2014.

Fantasy Impact:

With Chris Johnson likely on his way out, the Titans are securing some depth by re-signing Battle. He's a capable back that can carry the load in a pinch.

National Football Post - [Full Article]

Titans head coach Mike Munchak said:

Shonn Greene, starting today, [will] be a lot more active. Now it's just a matter of seeing how [he handles] more activity. I think the rest part and the light stuff is over, and now he can get more into real football stuff, and now it's just a matter of how quickly he progresses without pain. We'll see how Shonn is this week running and how he handles and how his knee responds to more football-like activity."

Fantasy Impact:

Greene has been out since Week 2, and with Jackie Battle injured last week, the timing is good for the Titans and their struggling running game. The struggles could continue this week, though, in a late afternoon game against the 49ers. Greene is expected to go back to being the goal line back when he returns. Battle would be the team's RB3 behind Chris Johnson.

Titans RB Jackie Battle should be OK with neck injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Shonn Greene could also be back this week for the Titans and it could mean Battles goes back to being an RB3 if he plays.
