The Tennessee Titans pulled off an incredible victory to win their final game of the regular season. What can we expect from the Titans in their Wild Card matchup this weekend? If you’re trying to figure out which quarterback to use this weekend, here’s a look at Ryan Tannehill.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans QB Ryan Tannehill, $6,600

In Week 17 against the Houston Texans, Tannehill completed 18 of 27 passes for 216 yards and a touchdown with zero interceptions. He also rushed for a pair of touchdowns and finished with 38 rushing yards on seven carries.

Tannehill is the second highest priced quarterback among the Sunday games only behind Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. DraftKings Sportsbook has the over/under for this game set at 54.5, which is the highest total of all the games this weekend, so oddsmakers expect there to be quite a few points scored in this one. Against Baltimore in November, Tannehill completed 22 of 31 passes for 259 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

The Titans-Ravens matchup very well could turn into a shootout, and having a quarterback in that situation is an exciting time. The Ravens have a sizeable advantage on defense, but Tennessee will be ready to put up points, making Tannehill a solid play in DFS. However, the Titans are coming in as 3.5-point underdogs, so he might not be a great play if you’re in a fantasy league that favors players whose team advances in the postseason.
