Tennessee Titans DFS Spin
It might be tempting to insert Titans star running back Derrick Henry into your lineup. I don’t think there’s much value there. Henry is only averaging 3.6 yards per carry and the Colts’ defense is giving up only 2.6 yards per rushing attempt, the best figure in the league through 3 weeks.
The Colts are 21st in the NFL when it comes to passing yards allowed per attempt. Because of this, wide receivers Robert Woods and Treylon Burks might be worth a look as they’re the top 2 on the Titans in targets and yards. If you’re in need of a deep sleeper or two, consider Titans rookie wide receiver Kyle Philips out of UCLA as long as he plays. Philips is currently questionable questionable with a shoulder injury. Or you could think about reserve running back Dontrell Hilliard who leads the Titans in touchdown catches with 2 on the year.
Indianapolis Colts DFS Spin
The Tennessee Titans rank last in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per carry at 5.8. This makes Colts star running back Jonathan Taylor a must-play for Sunday. Backup running back Nyheim Hines might have some value as well as Matt Ryan has used him as a check-down option to the tune of 17 targets (2nd on the team) through 3 games.
If you think that Indianapolis is going to be trailing in this game, you should invest in their pass catchers like Michael Pittman Jr. or Ashton Dulin. Rookie tight end Jelani Woods may be a good sleeper as he caught 2 touchdowns in his first game action against the Chiefs last weekend.

Titans vs. Colts Prediction:
I still believe in the Tennessee Titans. They could very easily be 2-1 as they lost their opening game to the New York Giants on a late-game two-point conversion. The number’s aren’t great for Indianapolis QB Matt Ryan (3 touchdown passes, 4 interceptions, 23rd in QBR) and I don’t feel good about laying more than a field goal with him against any team that’s halfway decent. I do think this game will be close, like a 3-point game either way. Because of that, and because Tennessee has beaten Indianapolis 3 out of the last 4 times they’ve played, I’ll take the Titans and the points.
