Week 3: vs Seattle Seahawks

All WR vs SEA

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Titans passing attack, and offense as a whole, started out very sluggish last week against a tough Jaguars secondary. Marcus Mariota looked sloppy in the first half, but he really turned it around on the other side of halftime, completing six of nine passes for 135 yards and a touchdown. Delanie Walker continues to showcase his connection with Mariota as he led the team in receiving yards for a second week in a row (while also adding a career-first rushing touchdown last week). Rishard Matthews made a couple of big plays on one drive but was otherwise quiet. Corey Davis was ineffective for three-quarters before leaving with a hamstring injury similar to what he was dealing with throughout training camp. He would later return to help with run-blocking but is still listed as day-to-day. The stats did not look eye-popping for this passing offense last week, but much of that was due to the game script as the Titans centered their offense around the run during the second half to protect their lead. The Seahawks pass defense has allowed only 5.9 yards per pass attempt in their first two games, including Week 1 against Aaron Rodgers. The sample is small, but this is one of the most feared secondaries in the league with some serious talent at most positions. Bobby Wagner had Brian Hoyer's number last week as he read Hoyer like a book, defending two passes while intercepting one. Both safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor continue to look solid this year in defending over the top. Delanie Walker will have a tough time finding space in the middle against these linebackers and safeties, Corey Davis likely will not be 100%, and Rishard Matthews should see a lot of Richard Sherman.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs JAX (5 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)

Eric Decker started hot by hauling in the first two receptions of the game for the Titans. His second catch was his longest, for 16 yards, coming as Decker stopped on a dime and hauled in a slightly overthrown ball for before being immediately tackled. Decker hauled in one additional reception later in the second quarter, then was not targeted again as the Titans threw only a handful of passes in the second half.

2017 Week 1 vs OAK (8 / 3 / 10 / 0 rec)

Eric Decker did not look sharp in his Titans debut, catching three of his eight targets for 10 total yards. Decker was definitely out-shined by his counterparts Rishard Matthews and Corey Davis, despite his relatively equal target share. Decker was routinely covered and rarely open. In one opportunity to make a big third down catch mid-way through the third quarter, Decker simply tripped up on his route instead of hauling in what would have been at least as 15-yard completion. On a positive note though, Decker did receive a couple of targets in the red zone - an encouraging note for a proven red zone threat such as Decker.

Titans | Eric Decker, Rishard Matthews to start (Wed Sep 20, 06:42 PM) - Tennessee Titans WRs Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews are set to start in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks with rookie WR Corey Davis (hamstring) sidelined.

Our View: Neither Decker or Matthews are likely to do much against the Seahawks on Sunday. It helps that they're at home in Week 3, but fantasy owners should just consider either one a WR3 or flex play.
