Titans HC Ken Whisenhunt thinks of Dexter McCluster 'more as a running back'

Dexter McCluster @dextermccluster reached the 2014 Pro Bowl because he was an elite punt returner last season. But everyone understands he is really a jack of all trades. Other than his contributions on special teams, he can line up out of the slot as a receiver or in the backfield as a runner. Interestingly, that last part is what interests head coach Ken Whisenhunt most.
According to The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt, Whisenhunt said Wednesday "he thinks of McCluster more as a running back ...." Whisenhunt added that McCluster's involvement in the offense "could vary week to week. As long as he makes a lot of plays, he is going to get a lot of touches."

Fantasy Analysis:

Whisenhunt's comments don't really change how I perceive McCluster's fantasy value. The Titans will see how McCluster can help them most on offensive, but that will take trial and error. Simply, he is going to be extremely inconsistent for fantasy purposes. I don't expect to see the slight McCluster taking on 10-15 carries per game all of sudden. He should remain a useful receiver and continue to do his best work as a returner. Shonn Greene looks like the Titans' rushing leader for 2014 right now. Chris Johnson @ChrisJohnson28 should be released soon.
