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 (1 / 1 / 42 / 0 rec, 2 / 16 / 0 rush)

Taywan Taylor's game did not start well as he sustained an ankle injury on special teams at the end of the first quarter. Taylor hobbled off the field but returned a couple series later. The rookie Taylor does not get a ton of snaps on offense, but he made the most of it in this game as he hauled in his only target for a 42-yard reception - the Titans longest offensive play of the game. Taylor simply beat Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye on a go-route, using his speed to outrun Bouye and layout for the diving reception that set up what would be a Titans touchdown. Taylor also used his speed to contribute on a couple of end-arounds - one was a bust, while the other went for 17 yards.

Titans | Taywan Taylor might see more work (Wed Sep 20, 06:42 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor might see a bump in reps in practice this week with WR Corey Davis (hamstring) already ruled out for Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Our View: The Western Kentucky product was a third-round pick for the Titans this year. We like his game, and Taylor is dynamic after the catch. The rookie has a tough matchup against the Seahawks, so we're not starting him...just monitoring him in dynasty leagues we've got him in.
