The Tennessee Titans played in a close game against the Oakland Raiders, and Justin Hunter came up with a big play to give him a solid fantasy football performance.

The Titans won 23-19, and Hunter put up nice numbers.  He had six receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown, which includes his big 54-yard score that came early in the third quarter.  That was good enough for 16 points in ESPN's standard scoring leagues and 21 points in leagues that use points per reception.

While this game was good, Hunter hasn't been a very productive receiver this season.  Before Sunday, he had just seven receptions for 122 yards and two touchdowns.  Over his previous six games, he had put up just six fantasy points, scoring zero in four of those games.

While Hunter is certainly a player with big-play potential, his lack of production is very concerning.  There are already a number of talented wide receivers like Kendall Wright and Nate Washington that need to get on the field, and that limits Hunter's opportunities.

Right now, I probably still wouldn't consider picking up Hunter.  If you do have Hunter on your team, now would be a great time to try and trade him off to someone who thinks that he will blow up.
