    this is a status for the Fantasy Football players out there... We all know who are usually the first QB's taken are every year. Cam, Big Ben, Luck, Brady, Rodgers, etc. etc....

    But can it be smart and a "steal" to be able to sit for several rounds on your QB need by drafting Mariota giving you room to spend your early rounds on your RBs and WRs?..

    Note: QB's are usually taken rd. 4-5. You have to be off your rocker to take one higher than that. And usually those are the premier, year after year producers.

    At the end of last season I would have said absolutely... but now with DeMarco and Henry leading our "thunder and thunder" run game, it's not so set in stone. Mary's passing numbers per game will likely decrease. I don't know if I'd rely on him as my #1 this season for a redraft league. But if you are referring to a dynasty league I'd say go for it. I'm just not sure you'll get immediate returns this season.

    Granted, this is coming from a guy who has finished out of the playoffs the past two seasons but I wouldn't draft Mariota at all except as a late-round backup.

    Would DeMarco be worth a starter look for RB or is it too much risk over reward at this point?

    Absolutely. Mularkey wants to pound the rock, he's going to get his touches.

    Outside of Walker, there is no Titan worth drafting until very late, IMO.

    @GoT drafted as many Titans as he could a few years back in Titan Cup just so he'd have another reason to cheer on Sunday's.

    I don't think that worked out too well for him.

    If you take him you better take another qb right after to start the games Mariotas sits
