Week 12: vs Jacksonville Jaguars
FBG says: Neutral matchup. While Ryan Tannehill may not have transformed this offense, he certainly has done a fine job in leading a low-volume Titans passing offense--especially in the fourth quarter as he has now led three game-winning drives in the four games he has started. Tannehill has not put up flashy numbers, but he is relatively accurate with his throws as he leans primarily on short-to-medium targets in most cases. Tannehill has not been scared to air it out, but he simply has not been very effective at connecting with his outside receivers. This was on full display in his last week as no Titans receiver finished with more than one reception, combining for just four catches while Tannehill found his tight ends seven times. Corey Davis missed that last game with a hip injury and remains questionable coming into this week. A.J. Brown could be considered the WR2 based on targets and flashes of talent, but he finished with more than three receptions just twice this season. Tight end Delanie Walker was also injured prior to the bye and remains questionable coming into this week, but a return for Walker looks promising. Pretty much any Titans wide receiver or tight end is tough to rely upon based on the volatility and low volume of this passing offense. Jacksonville's middling pass defense has stepped up their game since a rocky start to the season despite the absence of Jalen Ramsey for most of the season. While they haven't faced many high-quality offenses, this group has been an above-average passing defense since Week 5--giving up just 211 passing yards per game (5th-fewest) while limiting wide receivers to the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game (PPR scoring). Play from their secondary has been simply average, with Tre Herndon as the most exploitable cornerback of the bunch while both D.J. Hayden and A.J. Bouye continue to play relatively well. The key for this defense has been strong play from the defensive line. The Titans have given up a league-leading 42 sacks while the Jaguars have sacked opposing quarterbacks at the fifth-highest rate (33 sacks) in the league. The Titans coughed up a whopping nine sacks in their last matchup with Jacksonville, but while the Tennessee offensive line still has some question marks in pass protection, they are in a much better spot now than they were in Week 3 without Taylor Lewan in the mix. Still, Jacksonville has the advantage in the trenches and should manage to put plenty of heat on Tannehill.
