Matt Cassel could land back on the fantasy football radar for Week 17 after Tennessee Titans starting quarterback Marcus Mariota suffered an ankle injury Saturday during the team's Christmas Eve clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

There's no question Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has heard all of the rumblings about his future here in Jacksonville. Their win over the Colts in London was technically a home game, but several players admitted that doesn't count. They got it right with their other team-building moves around the franchise quarterback that they put in place.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, are 10-4 and could drop out of first place in the AFC West and into a wild card spot with an Oakland win. The Titans (8-6) had fought back in the game's final minutes, with a 1-yard touchdown run by running back Derrick Henry .
