WR Kalif Raymond - Tennessee Titans
|5-9, 160||Born: 8-8-1994||College: Holy Cross||Drafted: ---|
Week 14: at Oakland Raiders
FBG says: Good matchup. Ryan Tannehill continues to lead the red hot Titans to success despite what has been a pretty inconsistent passing offense from a fantasy perspective. While Tannehill has passed for two touchdowns in three straight games and has multiple passing touchdowns in five of his six starts, he has also failed to cross the 200-yard mark in half of his starts while virtually ignoring the wide receiver position at times. Since Tannehill took over in Week 7, no Titans wide receiver has exceeded 30 receiving yards or three receptions in back-to-back weeks. The closest any Titans pass-catcher has come to consistency was when Jonnu Smith put up 64 and 78 yards in Weeks 7 and 8. A.J. Brown has been a favorite target for Tannehill and certainly offers the most upside for this group. Beyond Brown (and even including Brown, to be honest), it should be easy to avoid this Titans passing offense for fantasy purposes. The Raiders defense may have held Patrick Mahomes to just 175 passing yards and one passing touchdown last week, but that was not necessarily due to particularly strong play from this defense as the Chiefs offense was cruising due to the big lead built up by halftime. Looking at the season as a whole, the Raiders have been one of the worst teams in football against the pass with multiple touchdowns given up in eight of 12 games, including Week 12 against what has been a very poor Jets offense. Big plays have been a problem for this secondary, as they have allowed the second-most pass plays of 20 or more yards (56) and the third-most of 40 or more yards (13). They lack a true playmaking defensive back with mediocre safeties and just one decent coverage cornerback in Daryl Worley. All Titans receivers should have an advantage in their matchups this week, with Adam Humphries, in particular, seeing a bump due to the very poor play from slot cornerback Lamarcus Joyner. Jonnu Smith should also have a decent shot at finding the end zone against this defense that has allowed the second-most touchdowns (8) to opposing tight ends and gave up 90 yards to Travis Kelce last week.

2019 Week 13 vs IND (1 / 1 / 40 / 1 rec)
Kalif Raymond has only played five games with the Titans, but he has made a couple of big plays since joining the team, including his one catch this week that was a 40-yard touchdown bomb on a beautiful pass thrown from Tannehill. Raymond showed tremendous speed as he flat out sprinted past the defensive back and laid out in the end zone to haul in this reception. It was his first career touchdown reception.
