SHOWDOWN STRATEGY

Titans will be without Derrick Henry and face a tough test against a very good Rams defense. Without Henry in the backfield, it will make matters tough on Tannehill as the Rams won’t be forced to stack the box. Much like the game on Thursday night (Colts/Jets), this game has ‘Ram’s onslaught’ written all over it. The other nice thing about the Rams pieces is their target share has been fairly predictable all season. 

I’ll be building Rams heavy lineups where I only have one or two pieces from the Titans side. I want 100% exposure too Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford. Both are expensive but I think the key will be one of these really cheap punt plays on the Titans side to make it work (Chester Rogers, D’Onta Foreman, Marcus Johnson, Anthony Firkser, MyCole Pruitt, etc) 

 

 

CAPTAIN PLAYS

  • Cooper Kupp, 18.6K — The guy is a machine each and every week, a top CPT play tonight 
  • Robert Woods, 12.9K — A nice pivot off a chalkier Kupp 
  • Matt Stafford, 19.2K — Prefer a playmaker at the CPT spot but Stafford could work, you’ll need some punt values

 

FLEX PLAYS

  • QB’S — Matt Stafford, Ryan Tannehill 
  • RB’S —  Darrel Henderson, Sony Michel, Jeremy McNichols, Adrian Peterson, D’Onta Foreman 
  • WR’S — Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Van Jefferson, AJ Brown, Julio Jones, Chester Rogers, Marcus Johnson
  • TE’S — Tyler Higbee, Geoff Swaim, Anthony Firkser 
  • DEF — Fading both 
  • Kickers — Matt Gay, Randy Bullock
