DFS sleepers to consider for Ravens-Titans in Divisional round

The Divisional Round is up next and we took a look at some potential sleeper picks for Saturday’s Ravens-Titans matchup.

The AFC Wild Card round was a sight to see. The Houston Texans pulled off a second half comeback to top the Buffalo Bills in overtime while the Tennessee Titans upset the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Now the Titans will travel take on the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round, and we broke down some potential sleeper DFS picks you should consider from each team.

Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens

Mark Ingram is “on track” to play in the Divisional Round after suffering a calf injury in Week 16, according to Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh. But that doesn’t mean he’ll immediately assume his regular season workload. Baltimore has several quality options at running back, and Edwards is one of the best choices available. The second-year back rushed for 130 yards on 21 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17. The Ravens have remained loyal to the run all year, so their RB2 should get plenty out touches if Ingram looks rusty in his return. Edwards could also be the beneficiary of garbage time carries if his top-seeded Ravens pull ahead early.

Mark Andrews, TE, Ravens

Andrews isn’t a conventional sleeper, but the impact he can have on games shouldn’t be underestimated. Andrews was one of the players Baltimore opted to sit for its season finale, but he’ll be back in the lineup against the Titans. The Ravens holding Andrews out for Week 17 alongside Lamar Jackson and other key players is proof they value him. After all, the 23-year-old made his first Pro Bowl this year and totaled three touchdowns in Weeks 15 and 16. He leads all Ravens in receiving yard (852) and receiving touchdowns (10).

A.J. Brown, WR, Titans

Tennessee doesn’t have many offensive weapons not named Derrick Henry. While its depleted receiving corps is a weakness, Brown has been a bright spot for the Titans. The rookie wideout unexpectedly emerged as Tennessee’s WR1 but was held to four receiving yards on one reception against the Patriots in the Wild Card round. The Titans should make a concerted effort to get the ball in his hands, as that would give their offense more range.
