The Packers’ offense finally got a pulse against the Cowboys; one could believe they can have another successful week against Tennessee. The Titans’ passing offense has been underwhelming; Tannehill has just 1,300 passing yards, and Malik Willis just isn’t ready yet. Derrick Henry is just six yards behind the NFL rushing yards leader Saquon Barkley. Can Christian Watson build off his three-touchdown game?
Tariq is back with some more fantasy football start/sit advice.
Sit. Although the Packers’ secondary has struggled this season, the lack of success in the passing game makes it extremely difficult to trust him or any of his receivers.
Start. While Rodgers is yet to clear 20 fantasy points this season, it’s hard for me to say not to trust him after the game he had Sunday. The Titans aren’t very good in the secondary, but they won’t make it easy.
Come on now, what are we doing?
Start. Jones ran the ball 24 times for 138 yards and a touchdown against a stout Dallas defense.
Sit. Dillon only has one game of double-digit fantasy production. It’s not due to a lack of volume; he’s gotten double-digit rushing attempts in eight of the ten games this season. His only touchdown of the season came in week one. Now that I say this, he’ll score twice tonight.
Robert Woods/Treylon Burks
Sit both. Woods only has 24 catches on the year, and Burks hasn’t shown to be any more productive, partly due to injury.
Christian Watson/Allen Lazard
Start in deeper leagues. We can’t expect or hope for another three-touchdown performance from Watson. Neither guy has fully proven themselves on a week-to-week basis. In a standard 10-team, I’d leave them on the bench, but keep your eye on Watson. He could end up being a key to your playoff run.
Sit. He’s got less than 20 catches on the season, and there’s no true way of knowing who Tannehill is most comfortable within the offense.
Sit. I know you may have lost Ertz, Waller, or Goedert this past week, but there are better options out there. Tonyan has only been targeted more than seven times in a game this year twice.
While I think there are better options, this wouldn’t be a bad spot to start them. A Thursday night matchup, two struggling offenses, could be low scoring, and a turnover or two could be huge.
The defense has had six interceptions in the last four games. Tannehill can throw one or two away, and this is a good option for a start. Just pray Derrick Henry doesn’t have one of THOSE games.
