Tennessee Titans Fantasy Spin
Derrick Henry rushed 34 times for 182 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' road Wild Card win over the Patriots. Henry single-handedly put the Titans offense on his back to knock off the Patriots in New England. He was running over defenders all game long, especially in the first half when he piled up 106 rushing yards and a score. That production forced the Pats into a scheme change in the third and fourth quarters -- they put six defenders on the line frequently -- but even that had very limited success. Henry was just too big and fast to bring down on the first try. The Titans will face a much tougher test next week against the rested Ravens in Baltimore after tonight's emotional win. Henry will see 20+ touches once again as long as the game remains in striking distance.
Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Spin
Mark Ingram (calf) is questionable for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Titans. He finished the week with a limited practice on Thursday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ingram is expected to play through his calf injury, though ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley isn't as certain, calling him a "question mark" for Saturday's 8:15 PM ET kickoff. If Ingram is out or limited, it would open up more carries for Gus Edwards and, to a lesser extent, Justice Hill.

The under is 4-0 in the Titans’ last four games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.
The under is 8-2 in the Ravens’ last 10 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.
The Titans only scored 20 points last week in Foxborough and six came from their defense, which intercepted Tom Brady in the closing seconds and took the ball to the house for a late touchdown. Otherwise, while Henry was a beast, their offense didn’t generate many points. Now they’re tasked to move the ball against this stout Baltimore defense, which is problematic to say the least. That said, I still like the over, which is 9-2 in their last 11 games overall and 4-1 in their last five road games. We know Baltimore can score at will, whether its pounding the ball on the ground or allowing Lamar Jackson to move the offense through the air. If the Ravens can drag the Titans into a shootout, Ryan Tannehill has had success connecting with A.J. Brown for big plays. Despite the threat of the clock always moving because of the run-based philosophy of both teams, I still see plenty of points scored in this one.Titans vs. Ravens, 1/9/20 NFL Divisional Round Playoff Betting Predictions
