The Tennessee Titans will be without wide receiver A.J. Brown on Sunday as he continues recovering from a knee injury. With three more DNPs on the practice report, Brown seems a ways from returning and that leaves the door open for Corey Davis and Adam Humphries to boost their fantasy prospects.
Davis and Humphries led the team in receiving in Week 1, and each found the end zone in Week 2. Against the Jaguars last Sunday, Humphries caught five passes for 48 yards and a score, while Davis caught three passes for 36 yards and a score. Jonnu Smith led the team in Week 2 with 84 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Football analysis: Titans WRs Corey Davis, Adam Humphries
The Titans face a Vikings defense that has given up the second most fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position. Minnesota lost linebacker Anthony Barr for the season to a torn pec, and ruled out cornerbacks Cameron Dantzler and Mike Hughes. With reserve Kris Boyd questionable due to a hamstring injury, their defense in general and secondary depth in particular is a mess.
This opens the door for the Titans offense up and down the roster. Derrick Henry will get his usual sizable workload, but Davis, Humphries, and Smith all should get a chance to see plenty of targets in this game.
