Week 14: at Tennessee Titans
All TE vs TEN
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. On Monday, Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said Trevor Siemian (sprained foot) is doing a 'lot better'. However, Siemian missed last week's game and has yet to test the appendage in practices as of Wednesday morning. Stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News as the weekend approaches for the latest on Siemian's availability for this game. Paxton Lynch won a game last week (12/24 for 104 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, with two sacks taken for -2 yards), but didn't do much for fantasy owners during the care-taking. This is a fluid situation entering mid-week, folks. If Lynch is in, don't bank on any of the Broncos' receivers this weekend.
The Titans are ranked 26th in the NFL with an average of 270.3 net passing yards allowed per game, handing out 21 passing scores so far, vs. 11 interceptions and 30 sacks generated (tied for eighth- and seventh-ranked in the NFL, respectively). Two weeks ago, the Titans allowed 28/54 for 316 yards passing, three TDs and two interceptions (with zero sacks) to journeyman Matt Barkley of Chicago. From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Tennessee has averaged 27.3 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (most in the NFL); and 35.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (most in the NFL); with 4.4 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (sixth-least). This is not a good pass D, folks.
Advantage, Denver, even if they have to go with Lynch.
