ESPN - [Full Article]

The Tennessee Titans have hired Mike Vrabel as the 19th head coach in franchise history, the team announced Saturday.

Vrabel, 42, will replace Mike Mularkey, who was fired Monday. The Titans will give Vrabel a five-year contract, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

A 14-year NFL veteran and three-time Super Bowl champion, Vrabel spent the past four seasons coaching the Houston Texans, including 2017 as their defensive coordinator.

Fantasy Impact:

We're waiting to see who Vrabel hires as his offensive coordinator. It's a crucial hire, and the fantasy value of the Tennessee skill position players will depend on it.

Texans WR Will Fuller to have minor knee surgery

Receiver Will Fuller, who just completed his second season with the Texans, will undergo minor knee surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

McClain went on to say Fuller should be full go in a few weeks. He was injured three times this season and finished with 26 catches for 406 yards and 7 TDs. Fuller's connection with Deshaun Watson for a brief time this year will likely be remembered by the time Watson is healthy again and fantasy drafts take place in August.

Bill O'Brien said he thinks there's a chance Deshaun Watson could be back in some capacity for OTAs because he's ahead of schedule in his rehab.

Fantasy Impact:

Great news for Watson, who tore his ACL in a practice in November. The Texans likely won't push him as it seems like he'll be good to go for camp and for the start of the season.

Colts fire HC Chuck Pagano

NFL.com - [Full Article]

A year after the Indianapolis Colts surprised many by choosing to retain Chuck Pagano as their head coach, a third straight season of missing the playoffs has compelled the team to move in a new direction.

The Colts fired Pagano on Sunday in the wake of a 4-12 campaign -- his worst mark in his seven years as Indy's head coach. The firing came shortly after the team's 22-13 win over the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact:

Pagano posted a 53-43 record in Indianapolis. After posting three consecutive 11-5 marks that culminated in an appearance in the 2014 season's AFC Championship Game, the Colts failed to make the playoffs in 2015 after an 8-8 season hampered by injuries to franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.
