  • Randy Bullock - Week 6 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Tennessee Titans kicker Randy Bullock has been solid in 2021, converting 9-of-11 field goal attempts and 10-for-11 in extra-point tries over five weeks. Monday's game between the Buffalo Bills and Titans has a high over/under of 54, with Tennessee's team implied total projected at 24. The Bills defense has been stout this season, allowing 12.8 points per game to opposing teams. Fantasy managers searching for a kicker streamer can look elsewhere on the waiver wire as the Titans' offense could have a tough time moving the ball on Monday. Bullock is mainly an option in deep-league formats.

  • A.J. Brown - Week 6 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Tennesee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice and is expected to play in Monday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Last week, he returned to action after missing Week 4 with a hamstring injury and caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards in last Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 24-year-old has disappointed this season, averaging 14 air yards per target and 21% of the team target share, 35th among all wide receivers. Brown will look to bounce back against a Bills defense second in DVOA against WR1s and is considered a low-end WR2 in Week 6.

  • Anthony Firkser - Week 6 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Tennessee Titans' tight end Anthony Firkser gets a tough matchup against the Buffalo Bills, who are fourth in DVOA against TEs this season. The 26-year-old is the Titans' top pass-catching tight end but is expected to see less of a role in Week 6 with the pending return of star-wideout Julio Jones (hamstring). He has hauled in exactly three receptions each over three games in 2021. Firkser averages 6.5 air yards per target and owns 13% of the team's target share, 18th among all tight ends. Fantasy managers searching for a streaming tight end can look elsewhere on the waiver wire as Firkser is not a fantasy-relevant option in Week 6.

  • Ryan Tannehill - Week 6 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is a low-end QB2 in Monday Night Football's game against a tough Buffalo Bills defense. He has thrown multiple touchdowns just once over five games this season and gets Buffalo's defense that is first in DVOA against the pass. The 33-year-old has been sacked 20 times as the offensive line has struggled to protect the veteran quarterback this season. He has thrown for 1,251 yards and a 6:3 TD: INT ratio with 130 rushing yards on 17 attempts and a score in 2021. Tannehill is mainly an option in Superflex/Two-QB league formats in Week 6.

  • Derrick Henry - Week 6 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry will go up against the best rush defense in the league in Monday's matchup against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills' defense is number one in DVOA against the run and allows 78.4 rushing yards per game this season. Henry is the highest-scoring back in fantasy and should produce again despite the tough matchup. The 27-year-old has rushed for 640 yards on 142 attempts and seven touchdowns while catching 14-of-15 targets for 125 yards through five games this season. Henry should see another heavy workload again as the Titans utilize their star RB to control the clock and keep QB Josh Allen and the Bills offense off the field.

  • A.J. Brown, Julio Jones Practicing In Full

    Tennessee Titans wide receivers A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (hamstring) were both full participants in practice on Thursday. It's more notable for Jones, who has missed the last two games. He's now on track to play on Monday night against the Buffalo Bills. Brown was able to return last week but caught just three of his six targets for 38 yards in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Buffalo's defense is one of the best in the NFL, and they are allowing the fewest fantasy points per game (14.4) to wide receivers through five weeks, so fantasy managers should temper their expectations for both Brown and Jones. Brown is the safer option as more of a low-end WR2 in Tennessee's run-first offense. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill will have more upside with the return of Jones, but he's still a smart fade against Buffalo's defense.

  • Julio Jones Back at Practice on Wednesday

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones was back at the open portion of practice on Wednesday after missing the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. Considering the Titans play on Monday night, the fact that Jones is already practicing on Wednesday should lead to some optimism for his return against the Bills. The Titans' defense has not played particularly well this season, so there is a chance the team will need to pass often to keep up with Buffalo's explosive offense. However, the Bills have also struggled to contain Derrick Henry in the past, and we know the Titans will ride their star until they absolutely can't anymore. As a result, Jones is a risky WR3 or FLEX play this week.

  • Randy Bullock Tallies Seven Points In Week 5 Win

    Tennessee Titans kicker Randy Bullock went 1-for-1 in field goal attempts and was 4-for-5 in extra-point tries in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He drilled a 34-yard field goal before halftime, and his only missed kick Sunday's win came on an extra point attempt later in the game. The 31-year-old has now converted 9-of-11 field goal attempts and is 10-for-11 in extra-point tries over four weeks in 2021. Bullock is a solid fantasy kicker and remains a decent streaming option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6.

  • Anthony Firkser Catches Three Passes In Week 5

    Tennessee Titans tight end Anthony Firkser caught 3-of-4 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He continues to be Titans QB Ryan Tannehill's safety valve and has hauled in exactly three receptions each over three games this season. The 26-year-old is the Titans' top pass-catching tight end and has drawn 13 targets in 2021. He is expected to see his usage drop once star-wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) returns to action. Firsker is a low-end TE2 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6.

  • Marcus Johnson Leads Titans With 52 Receiving Yards

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Marcus Johnson caught 3-of-5 targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He saw an increased role with wide receivers Julio Jones (hamstring) and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (hamstring) inactive for Week 5. The 27-year-old logged 46 snaps, which accounted for 77% of the team's total offensive snaps. Johnson is a name to monitor in deep-league formats if Jones and Westbrook-Ikhine remain sidelined. The Titans wide receiver will look to build on Sunday's performance in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Ryan Tannehill Throws One TD Pass In Week 5

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 14-of-22 passes for 197 yards and one touchdown while rushing for 21 yards on three attempts in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Titans leaned on star RB Derrick Henry (29 rushing attempts) as Tannehill recorded just 22 pass attempts. The 33-year-old was efficient under pressure (hit eight times) and completed 63% of his passes. He has thrown multiple touchdowns just once over five games this season. Tannehill could have both his top targets back in Sunday's matchup against the Buffalo Bills but is considered a low-end QB2 in Week 6.

  • A.J. Brown Catches Three Passes In Return

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (hamstring) caught 3-of-5 targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He returned to action after missing Week 4 with a hamstring injury. The 24-year-old logged 40 snaps, which accounted for 65% of the Titans' offensive snaps in Week 5. Fantasy managers who spent a high draft pick on Brown are still waiting for that breakout game from the Titans' star receiver. He has yet to eclipse 50 yards in a game this season. The Titans wide receiver has hauled in 10 catches for 130 yards and one touchdown over four games in 2021. Brown is still recovering from his hamstring injury and is a borderline WR2 in Week 6's matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Derrick Henry Has Another Monster Performance In Week 5

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed for 130 yards on 29 attempts and three touchdowns in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He wasn't targeted in the passing game but found the end zone three times for another massive fantasy day in Week 5. King Henry has now rushed for 100 yards or more in four straight games. The 27-year-old continues to obliterate the Jaguars as he's now recorded 1,293 total yards and 15 total touchdowns over 11 career games against Jacksonville. Henry currently leads the NFL in rushing and is a surefire RB1 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6.

  • Nick Westbrook-Ikhine Inactive For Week 5

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (hamstring) joins Julio Jones (hamstring) on the inactive list this week. Down two receivers, expect to see a lot of Josh Reynolds in this one. Last week with Jones and A.J. Brown out, Reynolds was targeted nine times, catching six passes for 59 yards. He's an intriguing DFS value play this week against a weak Jaguars defense.

  • Julio Jones To Miss Second Straight Game

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones didn't practice all week. The good news for Tennessee is that A.J. Brown (hamstring) is expected to return after also missing the Week 4 loss to the New York Jets. With both Brown and Jones out last Sunday, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine saw a team-high 81% of the offensive snaps, but he's questionable to play this weekend. Josh Reynolds and Chester Rogers filled out three-receiver sets. Reynolds had a team-high six catches for 59 yards on nine targets. Reynolds could be worth a dart throw in DFS if Westbrook-Ikhine sits out on Sunday.

  • A.J. Brown Expected To Return Sunday

    Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said he expects wide receiver A.J. Brown (hamstring) to play in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars after he was out in the Week 4 overtime loss to the New York Jets. It's been trending this way all week with Brown returning to a full practice on Thursday. Veteran Julio Jones (hamstring) looks to be trending toward missing his second straight game, so Brown should see a heavy workload in an excellent matchup against Jacksonville. The 24-year-old saw just two targets before getting injured in Week 3, so he has only seven receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown in two-plus games in 2021. But with Brown on track to return this Sunday, fantasy managers need to get him back into all starting lineups.

  • A.J. Brown Upgraded To Full Participant On Thursday

    Tennessee Titans star wide receiver A.J. Brown (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Brown sat out Week 4 with a hamstring injury and was a limited participant on Wednesday. It's a sign in the right direction for one of the better wide receivers in the game and unless he has a setback, Brown looks like he will be able to suit up for a Week 5 matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. As long as he suits up, Brown can safely be plugged in as a WR1 against a poor Jaguars defense. With wide receivers Julio Jones (hamstring) not practicing yet this week and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (hamstring) limited in practice, Brown can be in for a good amount of work on Sunday.

  • Julio Jones Misses Another Practice

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday. Jones looks to be on the wrong side of questionable for a Week 5 meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and it would be his second straight absence if he can't play. The good news is that A.J. Brown returned to practice this week after also missing the Week 4 loss to the New York Jets with a hamstring ailment. The 32-year-old Jones did go over 100 yards receiving in Week 2, but his other two games left a lot to be desired. Brown will be a must-start fantasy wideout if he's back on the field Sunday, but Jones' up-in-the-air status shouldn't make fantasy managers confident. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Josh Reynolds would likely make up three-receiver sets with Brown if Jones can't play.

  • Titans Defense A Borderline Streamer Against The Jaguars

    The Tennessee Titans defense/special teams will look to bounce back in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars after surrendering 27 points to a weak New York Jets offense in Week 4. The Titans' defense hasn't been particularly great this season and allows 27.8 points (26th) and 358.2 (17th) of total offense per game. Tennessee has recorded eight sacks, two interceptions, and three forced fumbles over four games in 2021. The Titans get a plus matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Still, fantasy managers should temper expectations as the Tennessee defense is a borderline streamer in deep-leagues at best in Week 5.

  • Nick Westbrook-Ikhine Dealing With Hamstring Injury

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday and is considered day-to-day. Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) also missed Wednesday's practice while the team's No.1 WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) returned to a limited session. Westbrook-Ikhine started in Week 4's loss to the New York Jets with Brown and Jones both ruled out. He caught 3-of-8 targets for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets. The 24-year's role in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars will depend on the availability of Brown and Jones. Westbrook-Ikhine has hauled in 9-of-15 targets for 98 yards and a touchdown over four games in 2021.

  • A.J. Brown On Track To Return Against Jaguars

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday after sitting out the Week 4 overtime loss to the New York Jets. Unless Brown suffers a setback with his leg on Thursday or Friday, he should be good to go for a Week 5 meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars. With both Brown and Julio Jones (hamstring) inactive last week, Josh Reynolds and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine led the receiving group in targets with nine and eight, respectively. In a great matchup against Jacksonville, Brown would be an obvious choice to reinsert into all fantasy starting lineups, especially if Jones misses a second straight game.

  • Julio Jones Remains Out Of Practice

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday after missing the Week 4 loss to the New York Jets. Receiver Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (hamstring) also missed practice. Jones will need to practice in the next few days to have a shot at playing in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Westbrook-Ikhine saw eight targets without Jones and A.J. Brown (hamstring) last week, but he caught just three of those targets for 29 yards in the overtime loss. With Brown on track to return this Sunday, Westbrook-Ikhine would be nothing more than a WR4/flex in deeper leagues if he plays. Josh Reynolds, who saw a team-high nine targets, could again be in line for a bigger workload if Jones misses another game.

  • Darrynton Evans Designated To Return From IR

    The Tennessee Titans designated running back Darrynton Evans (knee) to return from Injured Reserve on Wednesday. The Titans are hoping that Evans can return to practice this week after going on Injured Reserve to start the season. It's unclear if he'll be active for the Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but this is good news for the team's running back depth behind workhorse Derrick Henry. The Titans also have Khari Blasingame, Jeremy McNichols and rookie Mekhi Sargent backing up Henry. Evans, a third-round pick last year, carried the ball 14 times for 54 yards and caught two of his four targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in five games in his rookie season in 2020.

  • Anthony Firkser A Borderline TE2 In Week 5

    Tennessee Titans tight end Anthony Firkser (knee) returned to action in Week 4 and caught 3-of-5 targets for 23 yards in last Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. He logged 46 offensive snaps and appeared fully recovered from the knee injury that cost him two games this year. The 26-year-old is averaging 5.9 air yards per target and 2.2 YAC per reception. Firkser is the Titans' primary passing catching tight end but hasn't produced for fantasy managers in 2021. The Titans' tight end has hauled in 6-of-9 targets for 42 yards over two games. Firkser is a borderline TE2 Week 5 in a plus matchup against a Jaguars defense that allows the third-most receiving yards per game this season.

  • Josh Reynolds Could Have A Big Role In Week 5

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Josh Reynolds (foot) made his season debut in Week 4 and caught 6-of-9 targets for 59 yards in Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. He averaged 17.1 air yards per target and accounted for 17% of the team's target market share in Week 4. The Titans could be without wide receivers A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (hamstring) for the second straight week. Reynolds would see an expanded role if both Brown and Jones were ruled out again. The Jaguars defense is allowing 312 passing yards per game, 30th overall in the NFL. Reynolds could see an uptick in targets but is a boom-or-bust flex in Week 5 against a woeful Jaguars defense.

  • Ryan Tannehill A QB2 In Week 5, Could Be Without Top Weapons

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill will look to bounce back in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars after getting sacked seven times and hit on 14 occasions in last Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. The Titans QB could be without his top to targets Julio Jones (hamstring) and A.J. Brown (hamstring) for the second straight week. He completed 30-of-49 pass attempts for 298 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Jets. His lone touchdown pass came at the end of the game. The 33-year-old has struggled this season and has only thrown multiple touchdowns once over four games in 2021. He is in a smash spot in Week 5 against a Jaguars defense that has allowed 312 passing yards per game, 30th overall in the NFL. Tannehill is a middling option without his top weapons and is a QB2 against a woeful Jaguars defense.

  • Derrick Henry An Elite RB1 Vs. Jacksonville In Week 5

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is an elite RB1 and could be the top-scoring back in Week 5 in a plus matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 27-year-old will look to make it four straight games of 100 rushing yards or more this Sunday. He has rushed for 510 yards on 113 attempts and four touchdowns while catching 14-of-15 targets for 125 yards over four games in 2021. Henry rumbled for 215 yards and two touchdowns in his last game against Jacksonville. The Jaguars are 0-4, and the defense has allowed 106.2 rushing yards per game, 13th overall in the NFL. Henry should produce his fourth straight 100-yard effort and is a surefire RB1 in Week 5.

    The Tennessee Titans defense/special teams allowed 355 yards of total offense in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the New York Jets. In Week 4, the Titans defense, a popular streamer, disappointed fantasy managers by allowing 27 points to a weak Jets offense. Tennessee did salvage some of their fantasy day by racking up one sack and one interception in Sunday's loss. The Titans defense hasn't played well and has allowed 27.8 points per game over four contests this season. Tennessee will look to rebound in Week 5 and can be used as a streamer in a plus matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, although you should obviously temper your expectations.

  • Randy Bullock Tallies 10 Points In Week 4 Loss

    Tennessee Titans kicker Randy Bullock made 3-of-4 field-goal attempts and converted his only extra-point try during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the New York Jets. He connected from 44, 46, and 36 yards out in Sunday's loss. The 31-year-old missed a crucial game-tying kick from 49 yards out with 19 seconds left in the game. Bullock has been solid for the Titans despite the missed kick, drilling 8-of-10 field goals and nailing 6-of-6 extra-point tries over three games in 2021. The Titans will have a decision to make once incumbent starter Sam Ficken (groin) is activated from the injured reserve. Bullock has kicked well enough to remain the Titans' primary kicker and is a solid streaming option in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Chester Rogers Posts 63 Receiving Yards In Week 4

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Chester Rogers hauled in 5-of-6 targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the New York Jets. On Sunday, he had an expanded role with wide receivers A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (leg) ruled out for Week 4. The 27-year-old has now been targeted at least five times in three of the last four games. Rogers is buried on the Titans WR depth chart and is mainly a stash in deep-league formats even with the increased role. The former Indianapolis Colt has caught 12 passes for 153 yards and a touchdown in 2021. Rogers is not on the fantasy radar in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars unless Brown and Jones are ruled out.

    Tennessee Titans tight end Anthony Firkser caught 3-of-5 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the New York Jets. He returned to action Week 4 after missing the last two weeks with a knee injury. The 26-year-old has now caught 6-of-9 targets for 42 yards as the Titans' primary pass-catching tight end. Firkser can be used as a deep-league streamer and should be considered a low-end TE2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5.

  • Josh Reynolds Targeted Nine Times In Week 4

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Josh Reynolds caught 6-of-9 targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 27-24 Week 4 loss to the New York Jets. He made his Titans debut on Sunday after missing the first three weeks with a foot injury. The former Los Angeles Ram was second in the team in targets and had a vital role in Week 4 with both A.J. Brown (hamstring), and Julio Jones (leg) ruled out. Reynolds was very involved in the short-to-intermediate passing game and averaged 9.8 yards per catch. The 26-year-old could be a borderline flex play in PPR formats against the Jacksonville Jaguars if Jones and Brown are ruled in Week 5.

He was expected to have an increased role after wide receivers A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (leg) were ruled out ahead of Sunday's game. The 24-year-old was a popular sleeper in Week 4 after catching four passes for 53 yards and a touchdown in Week 3. He was third on the team with eight targets but averaged 3.6 yards per target. Westbrook-Ikhine will look to rebound in Sunday's Week 5 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars but is only on the fantasy radar if Brown and Jones are both ruled out again.

  • Jeremy McNichols Leads Titans In Receiving

    Tennessee Titans running back Jeremy McNichols caught 8-of-12 targets for 74 yards and rushed for 11 yards on one attempt during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the New York Jets. With star wideouts A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (leg) ruled out, the Titans RB led the team in receptions, yards, and targets in Week 4. McNichols is the primary backup to Derrick Henry and the Titans' top-pass catching back, but might not see enough volume consistently. McNichols is a speculative add in PPR formats and could have a crucial role in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars if Brown and Jones are ruled out again.

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 30-of-49 pass attempts for 298 yards and a touchdown along with nine rushing yards on three attempts during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the New York Jets. He had a solid outing in Sunday's loss despite missing his top two targets in A.J. Brown and Julio Jones. The 33-year-old was two yards shy of throwing his second 300-yard game of the year. He connected with wide receiver Cameron Batson for a two-yard touchdown to tie the game 24-24. Tannehill will be a low-end QB1 in a plus matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, but it will be hard to trust him as a starting option if both Jones and Brown are out again.

The 27-year-old has now topped 100 yards rushing in three straight games. During the fourth quarter, he punched it in from the one-yard line to score his fourth touchdown of the season. Henry has 510 yards on 113 attempts and four touchdowns in 2021. The Titans star running back will look to make it four straight 100-yard games in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine is expected to be the Titans WR1, and QB Ryan Tannehill has a "ton of confidence" in him. Rogers could carve out a role of his own as the team's second top pass-catching option. Fantasy managers looking for a boom-or-bust flex option in deep-leagues can use Rogers, but should expect the Titans to use star RB Derrick Henry plenty against the Jets in Week 4.

  • Anthony Firkser On Track To Return In Week 4

    Tennessee Titans tight end Anthony Firkser (knee) practiced in full this week and is on track to return in Week 4 against the New York Jets after missing the last two games with a knee injury. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has completed 79 percent (66 of 83) of his passes to Firkser since he took over as the starting QB in Week 6 of 2019. Firkser only caught three of four targets for 19 yards in the season opener, but he'll have a big opportunity to stand out this Sunday with both A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (hamstring) ruled out. There's no guarantee that the Titans go with a pass-heavy script against New York with both Brown and Jones out, but Firkser stands to benefit and could be a nice TE2 sleeper in deeper leagues and DFS games.

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is confident in the team's receiving depth behind A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (hamstring), who will both miss the Week 4 game against the New York Jets. Chester Rogers was already the starting slot receiver, but he should see more targets with both Brown and Jones out. Rogers is third on the team in targets (13) behind Brown and Jones through three games, and he had a touchdown last weekend. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine caught all four of his targets for 53 yards and a score. He developed a nice chemistry with Tannehill in training camp and could be one of his favorite targets in a favorable matchup this Sunday. Cameron Batson and Josh Reynolds should also have bigger roles in Week 4, but Rogers and Westbrook-Ikhine are the better sleeper dart throws.

  • A.J. Brown, Julio Jones Ruled Out In Week 4

    The Tennessee Titans have ruled out both wide receivers A.J. Brown (hamstring) and Julio Jones (hamstring) for the Week 4 game against the New York Jets after they both missed practice all week. With their top two receivers sidelined, the Titans will ask Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Chester Rogers, Cameron Batson and Josh Reynolds to step up. Tight end Anthony Firkser (knee), who missed the last two games, could be a deep sleeper at the tight end position, but we suspect the Titans will just lean more heavily on their trusted ground game and workhorse running back Derrick Henry. Westbrook-Ikhine caught all four of his targets for 53 yards and a touchdown to lead the team last week when Brown and Jones were both injured, and he figures to be the best dart throw in deeper leagues.
