Shonn Greene RB TEN 14 Days

New coach Ken Whisenhunt plans to install a running back by committee approach this season.

We already know the identity of two members of the committee. Incumbent Shonn Greene will be the early down pounder and newly signed Dexter McCluster is going to play the passing back, Danny Woodhead role. We'd also expect the Titans to use one of their mid-round draft picks on a running back. Whisenhunt already knows Greene is not a true NFL feature back.

New Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said he likes what he's seen out of Shonn Greene on tape.

With Chris Johnson almost certainly getting his walking papers, Greene is penciled in as the Titans' starter. And Whiz seems fine with that even though the bowling ball shaped ex-Jet has averaged a pedestrian 4.01 YPC over the last four seasons and battled knee issues last year. Ideally, the Titans will add talent to compete with Greene via the draft and/or free agency. But for now, we can't rule out a two-down plus short-yardage role.

Shonn Greene rushed 19 times for 91 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Jaguars.

Greene took on a bigger role after being limited to three carries last week. He got an entire drive to himself in the second quarter and was used in all short-yardage situations over Chris Johnson. Greene's biggest play was a 29-yard power run in the second half and he converted on a goal-line carry for his only touchdown from one-yard out. The Titans will finish off the regular season against Houston in Week 17.

Shonn Greene managed four yards on three carries in Tennessee's Week 15 loss to Arizona.

The entire Titans run game was bottled up against Arizona's stout run defense, leaving scraps for Greene behind starter Chris Johnson. Greene can safely be dropped from fantasy rosters for Week 16.

Shonn Greene rushed four times for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win at Oakland.

Greene got two series to himself, but otherwise watched from the sideline as Chris Johnson failed to break tackles. Since returning from his knee injury four games ago, Greene is averaging just 6.2 carries for 21.2 yards with one touchdown.

Shonn Greene rushed three times for 10 yards in Tennessee's Week 11 loss to the Colts.

Greene wasn't targeted in the passing game. Greene was also held without a goal-line carry, as Chris Johnson cashed in scores of 30 and seven yards. With just 21 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown in three games since returning from his knee injury, Greene is hard to bill as even a desperation FLEX option, especially with CJ2K finally playing some competent football.

Shonn Greene rushed nine times for 22 yards and caught three passes for ten yards in the Titans' Week 10 loss to the Jaguars.

Game flow killed the Titans' running game, as the Jaguars jumped out to an early lead and never relinquished it. This forced Tennessee to throw more often than it wanted. Greene will continue to be a decent weekly bet for goal-line scores, though he's nothing more than a flex option and carries little value in PPR. The Titans will face the Colts in Week 11.

The Jaguars are ranked dead last against the run, giving up 161.8 yards per game.

The Jags have yielded more than 200 yards on the ground to opponents twice in eight games so far. It's going to be a simple gameplan for the Titans this week as they'll pound the rock with Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene. Owners in touchdown-heavy leagues can put Greene on their flex radar.

Shonn Greene rushed nine times for 38 yards and a touchdown and caught a 28-yard pass in the Titans' Week 9 win over St. Louis.

The Titans publicly pledged this week to get Greene 15 carries against the Rams. With Chris Johnson shredding and looking like the CJwhateverK of old, however, Tennessee couldn't take the football out of its best back's hands. Greene did execute on a five-yard touchdown run to open the game, and is going to remain a big part of the Titans' rushing offense as the lesser half of a one-two punch. Look for Greene to be a flex option in Week 10 against Jacksonville's generous defense.
