MATCHUP SUMMARY 

This is a spot for Ryan Tannehill to get back on track fantasy wise. Problem is, I don’t trust him in the least. The Washington Defense has severely underperformed and is desperately missing Chase Young. I won’t be playing any Tannehill though. While the Rushing DVOA for the Commanders suggest stay away, Derrick Henry is a different animal. He could absolutely OWN this defense this week. Over the last 2 weeks, he has 11 targets in the passing game which is new for him. I would expect another 20+ touches here for Henry and is an Elite spend up GPP option this week.

The Titans will be without Treylon Burks this week as he nurses Turf toe and is week to week. This is setting up for a coming out party of sorts for Bobby Trees. The Commanders have given up the third most FP to the WR position this season. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine is a pure GPP dart throw. None of the TE’s for the Titans are in play for me this week. Also, don’t hate the Titans Defense in this game.

After 2 30+ DK point performances to start the season against Jax and Det, Carson Wentz has coming crashing back down to earth posting on 9 DK points in each of his last 2 starts. He has taken sack after sack after sack. I am going to take a wait and see approach on him and sit out this week on the Wentz train. Brian Robinson should be making his return to the Commanders this week 6 weeks after getting shot in the leg. This whole backfield is an avoid situation in DFS as they have him, Gibson and McKissic that will be splitting the work.

This is an excellent WR matchup for the Commanders as the Titans have given up the 4th most FP to the WR position this season. Jahon Dotson was just ruled out, so that should force Wentz to target F1 Terry Mclaurin more here. I am seeing less than 5% ownership on him as of this writing…. Curtis Samuel will def be more popular than F1 as he has the target lead on the team 37-27. Both are great tournament plays this weekend. With the loss of Dotson, I expect Logan Thomas to be more involved, especially in the Red zone. He is also an interesting tournament play this week at a weak TE position.

I wont go crazy with my exposure to this game, but it is a game with 2 bad defenses, and could pop. I will be fading both QBs here and focusing on ancillary pieces.

THE DFS GEMS 

DERRICK HENRY, TEN – $8,200 on DraftKings. Coming off b2b 25+ DK point performances. He has TDs in each of his last 3 games. Could shred here.

ROBERT WOODS, TEN – $5,200 on DraftKings. Should see more targets with Burks out this week.

TERRY MCLAURIN, WAS  – $6,200 on DraftKings.This is the lowest price we have seen on him in a long time. Will be lower owned than Samuel here.
