Jackie Battle: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Given that Battle is the only fullback currently rostered by the Titans, his Week 1 status does not appear to be in much doubt, though fantasy utility will be difficult for him to carve out with Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster on hand to handle the bulk of the team's running back duties.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Chris Johnson and, to a lesser extent, Shonn Greene are possible cap casualties, but Battle won't be an option for the starting running back job. In all likelihood, Battle will be back as the No. 3 back, though it's still unclear who might be ahead of him.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Battle will look to crack the Titans roster out of camp, which could be difficult as he's currently behind Chris Johnson, Shonn Greene, and Darius Reynaud on the depth chart, and also has Jalen Parmele to contend with. If he does in fact make the roster, chances are his snaps will be very limited.
Battle was a productive player for the Chiefs at times in 2011, rushing for 597 yards with a healthy 4.0 per carry average. In San Diego, he could be a viable option to backup Ryan Matthews, although Ronnie Brown figures to have the inside track to that role.
Battle will be the Chief's fourth running back if he is able to make the roster.
A shoulder injury prematurely ended Battle's 2009 season after just five games. He'll be healthy for training camp, but he's more of a special teams player than a running back. Buried behind Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones and others on the RB depth chart, he's not even guaranteed a roster spot.
Battle will compete for a roster spot in training camp, but it won't be an easy fight. With Larry Johnson and Jamaal Charles locked into the top two running back slots, Battle must fend off Kolby Smith, Dantrell Savage and rookie Javarris Williams to earn his spot. We donít like his chances, and heíll likely be cut before the start of the season.
Battle saw action in a few games at the tail end of 2007, recording 47 yards on 14 carries. Heíll battle for a roster spot this season, but stands little chance of cracking the top three (Larry Johnson, Kolby Smith, Jamaal Charles). He probably wonít survive the final roster cutdown.
