Tennessee Titans Fantasy Spin
Marcus Mariota completed 13-of-22 passes for 183 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo. This was a step back after Mariota played his best game last week. Mariota didn't turn the ball over, something he's done all year, but he led the Titans to a bunch of stalled drives and three-and-outs. He also took five sacks, with four coming in the first half. Mariota had some bad breaks — he had two touchdowns negated on very close calls— but he also played worse than his stats, with most of his yards coming on a screen to Jonnu Smith. The Titans have a winnable matchup with the Broncos next week, but Mariota will remain a QB2.
Denver Broncos Fantasy Spin
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos won't consider trading Von Miller. This comes in the wake of a report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, who hears Denver is "seriously mulling" major changes, which could include trading veterans such as Chris Harris, Emmanuel Sanders and Derek Wolfe. According to Rapsheet, the Broncos—who are coming off an upset win over the Chargers in Week 5—aren't ready to press the reset button yet and still feel they can turn their season around. Rapoport believes Miller would still be safe in the event of a fire sale, though if the Broncos do decide to be sellers, "just about anyone else" would be on the table.

The under is 6-1 in the Titans’ last seven games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.
The under is 5-1-1 in the Broncos’ last seven games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
The under is 20-7-1 in the Broncos’ last 28 games overall, is 18-7-1 in their last 26 conference games and has cashed in eight of their last nine home games. On the other side, the under is also 4-0 in the Titans’ last four games overall, is a perfect 5-0 in their last five games in October and is 7-3 in their last 10 road games. Given the struggles offensively for both teams, I see no reason to play the over.
