Rankings for Week 16 after the jump. Average spot is 17.

How many touches are they willing to give Chris Johnson as he chases the 2,000 rushing yards milestone in Seattle? (Kuharsky)

Yahoo! Sports  - down eight to #19.

Can Chris Johnson get the 234 rushing yards he needs to break Eric Dickerson’s all-time single-season record against the Seahawks – and is there any doubt coach Jeff Fisher will give him every opportunity to do so?

Pro Football Weekly   - down four to #18

Not the Christmas gift they hoped to deliver to Nashville.

CBS Sportsline  - down two to #20.

Vince Young will be their quarterback next season. He earned that, but I can tell you he still has flaws in his game that need fixing.

Fox Sports down one to #14.

Not to be a downer at Vince Young's revival party, but his 8-for-21 Christmas performance against the Chargers shows that to make the next level of NFL quarterbacks in a modern-day passing league, VY still has plenty of work to do.

The Sporting News's Power Poll  - down five to #19.

A goal for next season should be making their offense less dependent on Chris Johnson.

What if Sports's rankings - down one to #16.
