Ryan Tannehill To Face Tough Steelers Secondary

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is coming off a season-high 364-yard performance and heads into Week 7 with confidence, but he faces a stingy Steelers Defense that allows just 18.8 points per game thus far. Tannehill has thrown multiple touchdowns in 13 of his last 15 regular season starts and his resurgence has continued into 2020. The Titans like to limit his attempts per game, so Tannehill will likely be more of a mid-tier QB2 in this matchup of unbeaten teams.

Derrick Henry Faces Tough Steelers Team In Week 7

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is coming off three consecutive games with multiple touchdowns and just amassed 264 scrimmage yards in last week's win, so even a tough matchup against a Steelers Defense shouldn't deter fantasy owners from running Henry out as an RB1. Pittsburgh's defense is allowing just 66 rushing yards per game, so this matchup should be one to watch. Henry is an RB1 weekly; volume will remain high and Henry is starting to find his stride. The fact that he's been used a pass catcher bodes well for Henry's season long success.

A.J. Brown Finds End Zone Twice In Win

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown caught five of seven targets for 56 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 42-36 overtime win over Houston. Brown has three touchdowns in two games since returning from a two-game absence due to a knee injury. As the No. 1 wide receiver in a high-powered Titans offense that's averaging 32.8 points per game, Brown should maintain plenty of fantasy appeal in Week 7 despite a tricky matchup against the Steelers. He should play as a low-end WR1 with a high ceiling.

Ryan Tannehill Tosses Four Touchdown Passes

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 30 of 41 passes for 364 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 42-36 overtime win over the Texans. He also threw a successful two-point conversion and lost a fumble. Tannehill passed for a trio of first-half touchdowns, finding Anthony Firkser from seven yards out, A.J. Brown from six and Adam Humphries from 22. Tannehill is flourishing in this offense despite Tennessee's heavy reliance on the Derrick Henry and the run game, with a 13:2 TD:INT through five games heading into a high-profile Week 7 showdown with the Steelers.

A.J. Brown Heavily Targeted In Blowout Win

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown corralled seven of nine targets for 82 receiving yards and a touchdown during Tuesday's 42-16 win against the Bills. After sitting out the Titans' second and third games of the year with a knee injury, Davis attracted two more targets than any other Tennessee player Tuesday night, doubling No. 2 pass catcher Jonnu Smith's 40 receiving yards in the process. Brown will face Houston next, and appears to have quickly re-emerged as Ryan Tannehill's favorite target. Brown should play as a high-end WR2 / low-end WR1 in that matchup.

Jonnu Smith Finds End Zone Twice

Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith caught five of his seven targets for 40 receiving yards and two touchdowns during Tuesday's 42-16 win against Buffalo. The Florida International standout has been one of the fantasy revelations at tight end thus far in 2020, as his five TD receptions in four games are more than he managed in his preceding 20 games combined. Smith faces a Houston defense in Week 6 that is conceding a 72.7 percent completion rate to opposing tight ends in 2020. He's quickly emerging as a weekly TE1 and appears to be one of Ryan Tannehill's top options going forward.

Ryan Tannehill Accounts For Four Touchdowns In Blowout

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 21 of 28 passes for 195 yards and three passing touchdowns, adding four carries for 42 yards and a rushing score during Tuesday's 42-16 blowout victory over the Bills. The 32-year-old signal-caller will head into a Week 6 matchup against Houston's 21st-ranked scoring defense. He will be solid QB2 in superlex leagues that allow you to start two QBs. Getting wide receivers Corey Davis and Adam Humphries back from positive COVID-19 tests on a short week may not happen, but Tannehill remains a solid QB2 regardless.

Derrick Henry Runs For Two Touchdowns

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry ran for 57 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries, adding a six-yard catch during Tuesday's 42-16 win against the Bills. Efficiency has not been there thus far for Henry, but he's averaging an enormous 25.3 carries per game heading into a week six matchup against Houston's bottom-three rush defense. Based on volume alone, he's a locked in RB1 and a top five back heading into a the matchup against the Texans.

Jonnu Smith Poised For Another Big Game

Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith has 13 catches for 181 yards and three touchdowns through Tennessee's first three games, and he's in a good spot to keep rolling in week five. He faces a Bills Defense that has allowed the most yards (359) and the third-most receptions (31) to tight ends this season. The Titans haven't practiced much this week, but they should get star receiver A.J. Brown back in action. Tre'Davious White will likely key in on Brown, which could leave the passing attack in the hands of Smith. Expect mid-range TE1 production from Smith in this one.

A.J. Brown Faces Tough Matchup Against Tre-Davious White

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) is trending towards playing Tuesday against the Bills. He's been recovering from a knee injury but he'll have a tough matchup on his hands in All-Pro cornerback Tre'Davious White, so fantasy managers may want to calm their expectations. Fellow wide receiver Corey Davis was put on the reserve / COVID-19 list, so the Bills will likely key in on trying to shut down Brown. With that being said, Brown should see a healthy amount of targets in his directions. Brown will likely play like a low-end WR2 in this matchup.

Derrick Henry Will Be Well Rested And Ready For Heavy Workload

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry will have fresh legs after a week off, but the workhorse back will face a tough matchup with a tough Buffalo front line that just held Josh Jacobs to under 50 yards on the ground last week. Henry carried the ball 26 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns in the team's week three win over the Vikings. He also added two receptions for 11 yards. The volume continues to be there and he's solid RB1 in all league formats heading into week four.

Ryan Tannehill Throws For 321 Yards With No Touchdowns

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 23 of his 37 pass attempts for 321 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week three against Minnesota. Tannehill topped 300 yards for the first time this season. In particular, he showed a connection on deep passes with Kalif Raymond, logging completions of 61 and 44 yards. The negative -- Tannehill failed to find the end zone for the first time this season as the team settled for six field goals. He and the Titans will face a stiff test in week four when they take on the Steelers. He will be a low-end QB2 in that contest.

Corey Davis Leads Titans In Receiving Yards

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis recorded five receptions on six targets for 69 yards in Week three against the Vikings. Despite finishing second on the team in targets, Davis led the team in receiving yards in the absence of A.J. Brown (knee). The majority of his production came on a 38-yard reception that ultimately set up a one-yard rushing score for Derrick Henry late in the third quarter. Davis may be heading toward a fourth-year breakout. He has 206 yards and a touchdown across three games and should continue to be valuable as long as A.J. Brown remains sidelined. He faces a stingy Steelers Defense in Week four.

Kalif Raymond Has Explosive Output On Three Catches

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kalif Raymond caught three receptions for 118 yards in the team's Week three victory over the Vikings. Raymond delivered the two biggest offensive plays of the day for the Titans, hauling in receptions of 61 and 44 yards. This was Raymond's first true involvement in the offense in 2020, as he had run just 18 routes entering the Week three contest. However, he emerged last season -- particularly in the playoffs -- as a deep threat and flashed the ability to maintain that role with this performance. He will not be much of a factor once A.J. Brown returns.

Jonnu Smith Records Five Catches

He has already seen 20 targets to begin the season and has shown good chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He's a solid TE1 going forward but he gets a tough test against a stingy Steelers Defense in week four.

Tennessee Titans kicker Stephen Gostkowski kicked six field goals in week three, from 30, 31, 39, 51, 54 and 55 yards out. His final kick of the day, from 55 yards, proved to be the game-winner with 1:44 left. Gostkowski has now knocked in game-winners three weeks in a row. After a rough start Gostkowski looks to have found his footing. He's a solid option moving forward if you're in need of a kicker.

He also recorded a hold, a 2-1 record, 2.05 ERA and 0.77 WHIP across 22 innings. The 30-year-old closer should be reliable for Cleveland during their postseason run.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry carried the ball 26 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns in the team's week three win over the Vikings. He also added two receptions for 11 yards. Henry topped 100 yards for the second time in his first three games. He also has five receptions early on this season and has recorded multiple receptions on two occasions. Though that doesn't put him among the elite pass-catching running backs in the league, he recorded multiple receptions in only four games during the entire 2019 campaign. The volume continues to be there and he's a sure fire RB1 in all league formats heading into week four.

Ryan Tannehill Ready For Week 3

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has thrown six touchdowns in the first two weeks of the season while star running back Derrick Henry has yet to find the end zone. It's possible that the Titans offense is veering away from the run first mentality that they've been known for. Week three should be another good week for Tannehill as he goes up a against a Vikings Defense that has surrendered 578 passing yards and five touchdowns through its first two games this season. Tannehill should play as a high-end QB2 but could be without his top wide receiver, A.J. Brown.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry will be looking for the end zone for the first time this season Sunday against the winless Vikings.

"And that's what we want to do as a whole, and that's what we'll continue to work on. Eventually, things will happen. So we're just focusing on improving, and getting better as a whole and it will eventually happen for us." Henry is averaging 3.6 yards per carry, with a long run of 14 yards. He's still a solid RB1 in all league formats based on volume alone.

Jonnu Smith Looks Like A Solid TE1 Sunday

Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith is enjoying a breakout campaign, as he's now totaled three touchdowns in the first two weeks of the season. He faces a Vikings team that just allowed over 100 yards to Colts tight end Mo Alie-Cox in Week 2. Titans receiver A.J. Brown missed another practice Thursday and could very well sit out his second straight game. If he misses another game, Smith should see a heavy amount of targets and should be started with confidence in all league formats as a TE1.

Brown missed another practice Thursday. If Brown misses another game Davis should be worthy of a flex start in most league formats.

Derrick Henry Held In Check Against Jaguars

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry ran for 84 yards on 25 rush attempts during Sunday's 33-30 win against the Jaguars. He was also targeted twice in the passing game but recorded zero receptions. Combining Sunday's final statistics with Henry's Week 1 performance (3.7 YPC), the star running back is off to an inefficient start to 2020, though he is still the beneficiary of a massive volume share of carries. The 26-year-old has already garnered 59 offensive touches through Tennessee's first two outings, as the Titans now prepare for a Week 3 matchup against the 0-2 Vikings.

Tennessee Titans star running back Derrick Henry will face a Jaguars Defense against which he accumulated 203 rushing yards and three rushing scores in two matchups last season.

Jonnu Smith Should See Targets Increase With Absence Of A.J. Brown

Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith gets a plus matchup this week against a Jaguars Defense that allowed 363 yards through the air in week one. A.J. Brown (knee) is set to miss multiple weeks so the Titans will look upon Smith and Corey Davis more frequently. Smith hauled in four of seven targets for 36 yards and a touchdown during week one's 16-14 win against Denver. He's likely to see an uptick in targets and should be viewed as a high-end TE2 in week two against Jacksonville.
