Projecting to the upcoming season is a worthwhile exercise in fantasy circles. Like rankings, some projections are better than others. There are some factors that can help you project for your own purposes. First, never let your ranks affect the projections, second, use the information at hand to determine workload and splits, and finally, do not project in a vacuum. The third point is the most important, always project in the scheme of the offense. For example, you can’t project John Brown, Larry Fitzgerald, and Michael Floyd to each go for over 1,200 yards receiving and have 12 touchdowns if you expect the quarterback (Carson Palmer) to throw for just 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns. Since projections are a tough business, and it is tough to account for every catch on the season, there is a category known as scraps. Some teams have more of a clear-cut pecking order and therefore have a smaller scraps section; teams with lots of unknowns have a larger one. After you lay out your projections, think about the range of outcomes for each player, and use those to shape your rankings.

Tennessee Titans Pros & Cons:


 

(+) The Titans added two running backs this offseason in DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry that should provide a big boon to their run game

(+) Tennessee got a solid rookie season out of Marcus Mariota and the team plans to use his legs even more next season which could lead to a bigger fantasy impact

(+) Murray and Henry combine for one of the most hyped duos in the league but the team also sports a solid receiving specialist in Dexter McCluster out of the backfield and plenty of depth among failed players from the past regime

(+) Rishard Matthews, Kendall Wright, and Tajae Sharpe combine to be one of the savviest receiving corps in the league, the question is, is there a true game breaker on the outside?

(+) Delanie Walker headlines a solid cast of tight ends that were heavily targeted by this regime last season, and without a true stud on the outside Delanie has a chance to shine again in 2016

(-) The offensive line added a high draft pick this offseason, but they were still atrocious last year and will need more than one injection of talent to take a step forward

(-) The Titans have run a slow paced offense over the last few seasons and with how they want to run the ball and grind games out, the slow pace could continue to underwhelm for their targets in 2016

(-) The Titans were a below average scoring offense last season, and don’t seem ready to open up the floodgates and try and score a mountain of points.

(-) Behind Marcus Mariota the depth is thin as the team decided to go with Matt Cassel as their backup quarterback for some unknown reason
