When the Dorial Green-Beckham trade was announced, I saw more "why wasn't this Justin Hunter" tweets than anything else. The answer to that is simple- Jon Robinson was able to get something for DGB. He wouldn't have been able to get anything for Hunter.

As for Hunter, he said the fact that DGB was traded was a wake up call for everyone on the roster (according to Adam Vingan):

"I feel like everybody is on the chopping block,’’ Hunter said. "We have a new GM, and he didn’t draft too many people in here. Anybody could go at this point, and we are all fighting for a spot."

This response leads me to believe that Hunter, and other guys on the team for that matter, didn't feel this way before. Jurrell Casey said as much earlier this summer:

"I feel like everybody is on the chopping block,’’ Hunter said. "We have a new GM, and he didn’t draft too many people in here. Anybody could go at this point, and we are all fighting for a spot."

That is part of the reason that this team has been so bad for so long. You had a bunch of guys that weren't putting in the extra work because they weren't worried about losing their roster spot. That has changed, and the Titans will be better for it.

When talking about Titans receivers and fantasy football, the only guy you want to own is Tajae Sharpe, and even he probably only helps you in a deep standard league or a PPR league.
