From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 9): Brown looked like a man among boys on his long catch and run and showed he could be the top fantasy receiver for the Titans this year. That still might not be worth much in what looks like a very low volume pass offense.

Week 2: vs Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Titans offense put up some relatively flashy numbers in last week's win against the Browns, but the performance of Marcus Mariota still left much to be desired. Mariota was inaccurate for most of the game, noticeably missing on anything other than wide-open receivers. He amassed 248 passing yards, with 172 of those coming from three passes--one of which was an easy screen to Derrick Henry who took it to the house from 75 yards out. Rookie receiver A.J. Brown was another standout for the Titans, amassing 100 receiving yards in his NFL debut. Brown hauled in a couple of deep balls in this one, displaying the big play ability he was scouted for. Delanie Walker also made a triumphant return to the field last week with his first game with multiple touchdowns since 2015. Walker reminded everyone how dangerous of a red-zone weapon he can be for this offense with both touchdowns coming from within 11-yards of the end zone. Corey Davis, on the other hand, was a massive disappointment as he struggled under tough coverage and finished with zero receptions in Week 1. This week, the Titans will likely force Davis more targets as he sees an easier cornerback matchup. However, he will be tough to trust--especially considering how inconsistent Mariota was with the ball last week. The Colts secondary allowed Phillip Rivers to average nearly 10 yards per pass attempt on his way to 333 passing yards and three touchdowns in Week 1. This Colts secondary takes a team-based approach rather than individual playmakers, as no single player has proven to have game-changing talent. However, Malik Hooker is certainly making a case after his highlight reel interception in the end zone last week. Slot receiver Adam Humphries should be in a good spot against Kenny Moore based on the success Keenan Allen had from the slot last week. Both Corey Davis and A.J. Brown are also in decent spots, while Delanie Walker should find success if the Colts linebackers play as poorly in coverage as they did in Week 1. The Colts defensive line started strong though, as second-year Kemoko Turay was particularly impressive in limited snaps. He finishing with five pressures from just 18 pass-rush snaps, which also included a sack and a forced fumble. Justin Houston also had an impressive debut with the Colts and will be in a decent spot against backup left tackle Dennis Kelly this week. This Titans offensive line did give up four sacks last week, so with up to two starters still missing, there is an opportunity for Mariota to be under pressure yet again this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs CLE (4 / 3 / 100 / 0 rec)

A.J. Brown's official NFL career started with a bang with a few huge plays in his first NFL regular season game. The first came very early as he hauled in 47-yard reception on the opening drive-. Brown found space in coverage as he was wide open for the catch. He then kepd pushing downfield with a defender around his waist until he shed the tackler and gained a few more yards. Later in the first half, Brown could have had a decent chance at a touchdown reception had Mariota not dramatically overthrown his target. Brown would come back on the first play of the second half with another huge play. He caught the ball in stride about 12 yards downfield before striding across the field, shedding 1 tackler, and making two more defenders miss as he turned it upfield to complete what would be a 51-yard gain. Overall, Brown would finish with 100 receiving yards from three receptiosn in his NFL debut.
