* = Possible Captains

Tennessee Titans vs Indianapolis Colts (o/u 48.5 points)

QBs:

Ryan Tannehill* – Tannehill has been sort of a boom or bust QB, but on the other hand he has never finished outside QB2 range. In each games this year (except for against Minnesota in week 3), Tannehill has thrown for at least 2 TDs. This week he faces the stellar Colts defense who has allowed the least points to opposing QBs. That said, there is a fairly high o/u of 48.5 points in this game which would mean that both QBs will have to throw the ball and Tannehill should have a decent floor.       

Philip Rivers – Rivers is also another boom or bust QB. He has either finished outside QB#22 on the week or as a top 8 QB on the week. He does get a favorable matchup against Tennessee this week with most of his receiving core healthy and a decent o/u. Titans have also been allowing more than 2 TDs per game to opposing QB.

RBs:

Derrick Henry* – Henry had his worst performance of the year last week against a solid Chicago defense. He should be looking to bounce back this week. He has now finished inside the RB1 range 5 out of 8 weeks so far. He leads the league with 22.8 rush attempts per game and with that volume he is almost a locked and loaded RB1 every week.

Jonathan Taylor – Taylor only saw 6 rushing attempts and 2 receptions for a combined 35 yards last week against a solid Baltimore defense. He did salvage his value by getting in the end zone. On the other hand, Tennessee has allowed the 8th most FP to opposing RB. They have allowed at least 1 rushing TD in each week this year. Taylor should be safe and have a decent bounce back game this week.

WRs:

A.J Brown* – Brown has been lights out since coming back from injury. He is averaging 8 targets per week and scored at least 1 TD since his return in week 5. He is the clear WR1 in this offense. On the other hand, even though Colts defense have been solid, they have allowed double digit FP to opposing WR1. He should have a safe floor and if he finds the end zone again this week could finish in the WR1 range. 

Corey Davis – Davis was shutdown last week with 0 reception on 3 targets against Chicago. But before that week and since his return from injury, he was also averaging 10 targets and 1 TD in his previous 2 games. He is a high-risk high-reward type of a player this week against Colts.

T.Y Hilton – Hilton should be healthy and playing again tonight. He has been mediocre at best and has never finished inside WR#34 on the week. He is a desperation play this week if you really need one.

Zach Pascal – Pascal is slowly emerging and establishing a full-time position in this Colts offense. He now has at least 6 targets in each of his last 3 games. Unfortunately, that hasn’t corresponded to amazing fantasy value, but he is also a desperation play like Hilton above.

Michael Pittman Jr – Pittman was the biggest beneficiary with Hilton out last game but since Hilton is going to be back, Pittman might also be a desperation play. Pittman has the talent and last week was only his second game back from injury, but he should be slowly looking at carving a bigger role in that offense.
