What to do with AJ Brown, Corey Davis, Adam Humphries in Week 7 fantasy football

We go over AJ Brown, Corey Davis, Adam Humphries’ fantasy football outlook ahead of the Titans matchup against the Steelers as they each enter Week 7 undefeated.

The Tennessee Titans haven’t had all three of their top wide receivers together for a game since Week 1. But with Corey Davis now activated off the COVID reserve list, and likely to play this week, that’s about to change for the Titans. Just in time too, since they’re playing the Pittsburgh Steelers in a game that’s sure to have playoff ramifications as two of the AFC’s best teams go head to head.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans WRs AJ Brown, Corey Davis, Adam Humphries

Brown was out of action after Week 1, but stormed back into the lineup two weeks ago. Needless to say, he’s made a big impact with 138 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games. Davis, a capable No. 2, complied 206 yards and a touchdown through the first three weeks of the season. Humphries, more of a bit player, was able to kick in 64 yards and a touchdown last week against Houston with Davis out of action.

The Steelers defense is good, but it’s not been invulnerable to receivers. Two weeks ago, Eagles WR Travis Fulgham exploded for 152 yards and a touchdown. A week before that, Randall Cobb and Will Fuller combined for 149 yards and two scores. And back in Week 1, Darius Slayton of the Giants had 102 yards and two touchdowns.

It’s hard to make a case against starting Brown this week. Davis and Humphries will get looks too, and Davis should have a slight edge in targets. However, it’s harder to recommend either of those two receivers given the unknowns.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start A.J. Brown. Sit Corey Davis and Adam Humphries.
