Week 15: vs Houston Texans - $3800
FBG says: Good matchup. This Titans offense has come to life in recent weeks as Ryan Tannehill continues to light the league on fire with his spectacular play. Tannehill has passed for multiple touchdowns in four straight games and has crossed the 300-yard mark three times this season, including last week when he passed for a season-high 391 yards with three touchdowns. Tannehill is also now leading the league in yards per pass attempt (9.9) as he is showing little fear to push the ball downfield. That was on full display last week as he completed a number of deep balls, including a career-high 91-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Brown. Brown has morphed into the WR1 for Tennessee, leading the team in targets in five of the last seven games while exceeding 130 yards with at least one touchdown in two of his last three outings. The floor with Brown is certainly low given this Titans passing offense could easily amass fewer than 200 yards in any given week, but he is garnering serious attention from Tannehill and has the talent to break a big play in any given week. The Texans pass defense played as poorly as they have all season last week as they allowed rookie quarterback Drew Lock to pass for 309 yards and three touchdowns in his second career start. It was an astonishingly bad performance by this defense that basically lost the game for Houston within the first two quarters. However, last week's outing actually was more of the same from what has been a terrible pass defense all season. The Texans have given up more fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks than any other team since Week 10 and have allowed the sixth-most passing yards per game on the season. The Texans cornerbacks have actually done a decent job in coverage against wide receivers over the past four weeks, as only one wide receiver has crossed the 50-yard mark. They have allowed both opposing tight ends and running backs to do plenty of damage though, as Noah Fant found the end zone with over 100 yards last week while Mark Andrews also scored and finished with 75 yards in Week 11. Opposing running backs have scored five times through the air in the last four weeks as well. While the Titans don't use running backs too often in the passing game, tight end Jonnu Smith should be in for a favorable matchup while outside receiver A.J. Brown should also have the edge against the likes of Gareon Conley.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 12 vs JAX (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec - 4.9 points, $4300)
Corey Davis had little impact on this game as he returned from the hip injury, hauling in just two receptions for 29 yards from three total targets. Both of his receptions came on back-to-back plays midway through the second quarter, one a short screen and the second a long catch in the middle of the field for 24 yards. Davis did find himself wide open for what could have been a huge play if not for Tannehill overthrowing him by about five yards. This low volume passing offense has now kept Davis under 50 receiving yards in three straight games.
2019 Week 9 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec - 8.8 points, $4600)
Corey Davis was involved in the passing game with more than one deep ball opportunity, but he could not connect on any of them as his opportunities were either underthrown or defended well. Leading into halftime, Davis actually had accounted for a net negative yardage total for the team as he only had one 11-yard reception but was called for a 15-yard facemask penalty earlier in the half. It wasn't until the fourth quarter when the Titans were driving in garbage time that Davis was more involved and hauled in three of his four receptions.
2019 Week 8 vs TB (6 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec - 2.9 points, $4400)
Corey Davis was nowhere to be found in this week's win over the Buccaneers, finishing with just two receptions for nine yards. He was targeted six times, one of which was a well-thrown deep ball just barely batted out of his hands near the end of the first quarter. Davis also saw a deep target in the end zone but couldn't successfully compete for the ball to haul it in.
2019 Week 7 vs LAC (7 / 6 / 80 / 1 rec - 20 points, $4000)
Corey Davis led the team in receiving and tied for the lead in receptions as he had a solid day on Sunday. Davis made a spectacular contested catch on the second drive of the game as he was under tight coverage but plucked the ball away from the defender for an 11-yard gain. Two plays later, Davis hauled in another well-thrown ball that hit him in stride just in front of the defender for a 16-yard gain. His next look in the end zone as Davis settled between two defenders from eight yards out and caught a rocket thrown right between the numbers from Tannehill. Davis took a shot to the head just after making the catch, but he still held on to the ball for his second touchdown of the season. His longest catch of the game would come midway through the fourth quarter as Tannehill hit Davis with a dart about 14-yards downfield that split two defenders. Davis made the catch and quickly turned upfield to complete a 38-yard reception.
2019 Week 6 vs DEN (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec - 6.6 points, $4000)
Davis was targeted five times and hauled in just three receptions for 36 yards with all three coming from Ryan Tannehill in the second half. Davis was the target of Tannehill's first pass under center, resulting in a short 5-yard gain. On the following drive, Davis ran a good out route 13-yards downfield as Davis found him on the sideline. Davis would see a deep target later in that drive as well and made a spectacular sideline catch, but just barely missed getting two feet in as it was called incomplete. His last reception came on another well-ran out route on the right side of the field as Davis snagged the ball and spun for a few extra yards to complete his longest gain of the day--18 yards.
2019 Week 5 vs BUF (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec - 4.8 points, $4400)
The top play of the game for Davis came just before halftime as he ran a great comeback route to make the catch about 11-yards downfield before shedding an arm-tackle and turning it upfield to gain another 12 yards on his way to the 23-yard reception. Davis was targeted just three more times and managed to haul in just one short pass as he finished with a disappointing 28 total yards.
2019 Week 4 vs ATL (6 / 5 / 91 / 1 rec - 20.1 points, $4200)
Davis hauled in the first catch of the game on a simple five-yard out route where he stiff-armed a defender to create a gain of 14 yards. His second catch came wide open underneath zone coverage. His third catch was a nice come-backer where Davis hauled it in despite tight coverage from Desmond Trufant. He then broke away from Trufant's tackle attempt to pick up another five yards after the catch. Davis found the end zone on his next reception a few plays later on that drive as he made a nice cut after the catch on an out route, speeding around the Falcons defender before sprinting up the sideline for a 23-yard touchdown. His last reception came in the third quarter as Davis again found space in zone coverage to haul in a 16-yard gain over the middle.
2019 Week 3 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec - 7.4 points, $4200)
Corey Davis had another disappointing outing as he finished with just three receptions for a season-high 44 yards while contending with shadow coverage from Jalen Ramsey. His first target wasn't until the drive before halftime as Davis negated his own catch by lining up incorrectly to draw an illegal formation penalty. He would finish the first half with just one target but no catches. Davis would haul in all three targets that went his way in the fourth quarter, including an impressive one-handed grab on the left sideline. He fumbled right after the catch, but it was recovered by the Titans. Davis closed out the game with a 19-yard reception on the final drive as he took advantage of soft coverage from the Jaguars defense.
2019 Week 2 vs IND (5 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec - 6.8 points, $4500)
Corey Davis had another underwhelming performance as he saw just five targets--one fewer than Delanie Walker and the same amount as rookie A.J. Brown. After coming up short with no receptions in Week 1, Davis had his first reception of the season come on the third drive of this game as he grabbed a simple short pass for six yards. He would haul in another short pass for seven yards to finish a very quiet first half. His highlight of the game came to start the second half as Davis found separation to get open for a 25-yard reception. The cornerback in coverage came up injured on that play, which helped Davis to be left wide open downfield. This would be his final reception of the game.
2019 Week 1 vs CLE (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 0 points, $4900)
Corey Davis was invisible on the stat sheet as he finished with no receptions from three targets. He struggled to get open throughout the game, and even when he was open, Mariota was not accurate enough to get him the ball.
