Titans promote TE coach Arthur Smith to OC

TitansOnline.com - [Full Article]

The Titans have found their offensive coordinator, and he’s a familiar face – successful assistant coach Arthur Smith.

Smith has been promoted after wrapping up his eighth season on the Titans coaching staff, and his third full season in charge of tight ends after taking over the group for the final nine games of the 2015 season.

Smith’s position group has been productive, led by veteran tight end Delanie Walker. He’s also helped develop young players, including tight end Jonnu Smith.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, during his time in Tennessee, Smith has worked under four different head coaches – a testament to his reputation and success. Smith began under head coach Mike Munchak, and he also hired by Ken Whisenhunt before Mike Mularkey promoted him when he took over. Smith replaces Matt LaFleur as offensive coordinator under Mike Vrabel. LaFleur left to take over as head coach of the Green Bay Packers earlier this month.

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Atlanta Falcons have hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter to again be their offensive coordinator, the team announced Tuesday.

"We are fired up to have Dirk join our staff as our offensive coordinator," Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said in a statement. "His experience and familiarity with our division will also pay dividends as we move forward."

Mike Mularkey, who parted ways after going 20-21 in parts of three seasons as head coach of the Tennessee Titans, was named the Falcons' tight ends coach on Tuesday. Mularkey also previously served as offensive coordinator in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact:

Koetter, who turns 60 next month, previously was the Falcons' offensive coordinator from 2012 to 2014. He helped the Falcons to the NFC Championship Game in 2012 as the offense averaged 26.2 points per game and 369.1 yards per game. During his first three-year stint in Atlanta, the Falcons averaged 363.5 yards per game, 277.2 passing yards per game, and 24.0 points per game.

Titans official injury report

Marcus Mariota (stinger) has been listed as questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Impact:

There is virtually no chance Mariota sits in a must-win game for Tennessee. He isn't startable in pretty much any format, but his presence should help out Corey Davis.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. Nick Foles will start again this week. He put up a measly 9.3 fantasy points last week against the Rams, but he returns home to face a Texans defense that is tough to run on but vulnerable against the pass, yielding 253/2 to Sam Darnold, 399/2 to Andrew Luck, 397/1 to Baker Mayfield and 303/2 to Marcus Mariota in recent weeks.
