Los Angeles Chargers Fantasy Spin
Melvin Gordon rushed eight times for 18 yards in the Chargers' Week 6 loss to the Steelers, adding three receptions for 30 additional yards. The entire Chargers’ run game was held in check for most of the evening. Overall, they converted 14 carries into just 32 scoreless yards. The good news for Gordon’s future fantasy forecast is that he managed to out-snap Austin Ekeler 37-to-28 (per PFF). This included plenty of pass-down work despite the Chargers trailing by multiple scores for most of the game, indicating Gordon’s fantasy production should be fairly independent of game script moving forward. Still, it's best to approach Gordon has more of a low-end RB2 for next week’s matchup at the Titans until this Chargers offense can show some signs of life.
Tennessee Titans Fantasy Spin
NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Tannehill will start Week 7 against the Chargers instead of Marcus Mariota. It was only a matter of time before the Titans coaching staff was going to get tired of punting and making the change with a home game this week was perfect timing. Mariota has shown few signs of upside in the 61 games as the Titans' starter, and he's made the offense completely unwatchable for the last two-plus seasons. The 2015 second overall pick doesn't have a single 3,500-yard season and owns a career 7.2 adjusted yards per attempt average despite only attempting 28.5 passes per game. It's likely that Mariota will be playing in a new uniform in 2020, and he may have to settle for a backup job.
NFL Betting Trends
The under is 4-0 in the Chargers’ last four road games versus a team with a losing home record.
The under is 4-1 in the Titans’ last five games after accumulating less than 250 total yards in their previous game.
The under is a perfect 5-0 in the Chargers’ last five games overall, is 4-1 in their last five road games and has cashed in 22 of their last 30 conference games as well. On the other side, the under is a perfect 5-0 in the Titans’ last five games, is 4-0 in their last four conference games and is 6-0 in their last six games played in the month of October. I hardly believe a switch from Mariota to Tannehill will make much of a difference in Tennessee’s offense. Points will be at a premium on Sunday in Nashville.
