Opponent: Tennessee Titans
Location: Sun Life Stadium (Home)
Ryan Tannehill has been very up and down as an NFL quarterback in his rookie season and this is highlighted by having a single digit fantasy game every other week. After a double digit game last week, that means he’s due for a let-down once again this week. Now I think he finally breaks the cycle but not by much – I predict 12 points tops which isn’t good enough to make him worth starting if you can help it.
Reggie Bush has been amazing since joining the Dolphins last year but this year he’s been as inconsistent for fantasy as his quarterback. This is a good matchup for him though so I’d be comfortable starting him as a RB2. His backup Daniel Thomas is seeing more and more of the football and I really like this to be a game where he cuts loose – he’s a really nice sleeper pick as a potential flex play in 12+ team leagues.
The Titans give up plenty of big plays and this is great news for owner of Brian Hartline who have been waiting for him to breakout once again – he’s done very little since that magical 12 for 243 game in week 4. I think he has 100+ yards this week with one long score and should be considered a low end WR2. Davone Bess has failed to live up to expectation this year but he is getting plenty of looks – in PPR he’s a WR2 and in regular leagues he’s a low end flex option.
He’s not a flashy name but this feels like a day when Anthony Fasano could get involved early. If you are in a deep or 2TE league then Fasano should be on your radar. I don’t care that it was Charles Clay who got the TD last week – I like Fasano to make plays this week.
