What to do with A.J. Brown, Corey Davis in Week 11 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlook of A.J. Brown, Corey Davis ahead of the Titans Week 11 matchup against the Ravens.

Game day update: The Titans will be without Adam Humphries once again due to a concussion, which leaves Brown and Davis without a ton of receiver competition for looks. The Ravens have given up the fifth fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, so this isn’t a great matchup. In PPR leagues, ESPN projects Brown to have 13.6 points and Davis to have 10.4 points.

A.J. Brown and Corey Davis didn’t exactly come through for fantasy owners in Week 10. Let’s see how they can rebound this Sunday versus the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans WRs A.J. Brown, Corey Davis

Brown’s scant Week 10 box score — one catch for 21 yards — is pretty deceiving. By now, all of Brown’s fantasy managers know he flat-out dropped a wide-open pass along the sideline that, if caught, may have resulted in a 72-yard touchdown. However, after five consecutive weeks with at least one TD and an average of 21 DraftKings points during that span, one down game shouldn’t force anyone to turn away from Brown. It certainly won’t force Ryan Tannehill to turn away; Brown has a healthy 23.6 percent target share this season.

Davis’ target share over the past four weeks is even higher — 26.8 — but he doesn’t have Brown’s big-play ability. He is more of a possession receiver. He was the Titans’ most productive wideout against the Colts last week as he hauled in five of six targets for 67 yards.

The matchup for neither man is fantastic, as the Ravens have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to wideouts and just four receiving touchdowns to the position.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Stick with Brown ($7,200), but Davis is more of a WR3 that you’re hoping finds the end zone.
