Gameday update — Brown isn’t expected to blow up against the Browns’ weak pass defense but is projected to lead all Titans wideouts with 13.92 fantasy points on ESPN. Davis isn’t far behind and is projected to score 11.32.
The Tennessee Titans threw the ball just 21 times last week, but that was enough for both A.J. Brown and Corey Davis to turn in useful stat lines against the Colts. They will take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 13.
Fantasy Football analysis: Titans WRs A.J. Brown, Corey Davis
Until teams find a way to contain Brown on slant routes, the Titans are going to keep going to him on those plays. He took one of those slants 69 yards for a touchdown last week. Brown has now recorded at least one touchdown in seven of nine games this year. He hasn’t caught more than four passes in any of his last five games because of the Titans’ low-volume aerial attack, but his strength, speed and nose for the end zone have made him an every-week starter.
Davis is dependable in his own way, just not as explosive as Brown. The former No. 5 overall draft pick gained 70 yards on three receptions against the Colts and has now attained double-digit DraftKings points in every game outside of his Week 9 goose egg. He has become a sturdy WR3 in PPR season-long formats.
The Browns have given up just two scores to WRs over their last four games, but they did very little to harass Mike Glennon last week, and with cornerback Denzel Ward ruled out with a calf injury, Brown and Davis should have room to produce this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Brown’s DraftKings price ($7,600) ties a season-high. He has some risk; if the Titans get out to an early lead because of Derrick Henry, they may hardly throw at all. But his scoring ability keeps him enticing. Davis is easier to pay for at $5,100. He’s not a great tournament option, but a safe one for head-to-head matchups.
