Dolphins have exercised the 5th year option on center Mike Pouncey.
The Dolphins were hoping to completely overhaul their offensive line from the Ritchie Incognito/Jonathan Martin situation, but probably realized the importance of a quality back-up center. Pouncey doesn't want to be out of a job or sit with the stigma of that case on him the rest of his career, so he'll toe the line and be a good soldier.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said the team is giving Marcus Mariota more chances to run the football.
One of the bigger surprises this fantasy season has been the lack of running by Mariota, considering he came from a read option offense in Oregon. However, the rookie quarterback has still been a solid fantasy option despite the lack of running, so this will give a slight boost to his value if he is able to churn out a few yards on the ground. It’s always a tough situation when quarterbacks run more as they open themselves up for injury, but the Titans must feel confident that Mariota will know how to protect himself when he decides to take off and run.
