Titans claim Randy Moss off waivers

I hope the Tennessee caterers are to the liking of Randy Moss, who was claimed off waivers today by the Titans. The Titans have a bye this week. This certainly helps Chris Johnson, who was one of the elite fantasy running backs already.

Johnson has seen a lot of eight-man fronts and hasn't had a lot of space to run. That will change with Moss commanding defensive attention. Moss hasn't been getting open as often as he used to, but he still gets extra attention. Look what it did for Percy Harvin.

The offense is a good fit for Moss because there will be a lot of play action and Vince Young was throwing an excellent deep ball last week. Young left last week's game with an injury, but is expected to play in Week 10. He may not get to work much with Moss this week, though.

The addition of Moss also indicates Kenny Britt may be out for a while. If Britt comes back in a few weeks, this offense will be even better. Britt was already getting open incessantly without Moss. The schedule ahead looks real good too with the Dolphins, Redskins, Texans, Jaguars, Colts, Texans, and Chiefs in Week 16.

Young gets a boost and is a high-end QB2. Moss is a WR2.
