Tennessee Titans Daily Fantasy Spin
Tennessee will be missing starting right guard Daniel Brunskill (ankle) and starting right tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere (shoulder) against Tampa Bay on Sunday. On top of that, Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (concussion), cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting (thumb), and safety Mike Brown (ankle) will also miss this weekend’s game.
On top of those losses, Tennessee cornerback Anthony Kendall is questionable with a hamstring injury and quarterback Ryan Tannehill is questionable with an ankle ailment. Titans rookie QB Will Levis has ascended to the starting role so Tannehill will likely be serving as the backup if he’s able to play.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Daily Fantasy Spin
Tampa safety Josh Hayes will miss Sunday’s game with a concussion. Several of his teammates are questionable for the Bucs’ tilt with the Titans this weekend. Among them are cornerbacks Jamel Dean (concussion) and Carlton Davis II (toe), defensive linemen Logan Hall (groin) and Calijah Kancey (quad), and wide receiver Trey Palmer (illness/neck). Tampa Bay starting left guard Matt Feiler is doubtful to play with a knee injury.

Titans vs. Buccaneers Betting Prediction:
The Titans have turned the offense over to rookie quarterback Will Levis. Levis has looked decent so far this year. He’s thrown for 500 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 1 interception in 2 starts this season with a QBR of 44.4. He did display some limitations in his team’s loss to Pittsburgh last Thursday, and a veteran head coach like Tampa’s Todd Bowles should be able to exploit said weaknesses.
Tampa Bay has lost 4 games in a row, but the last 3 were by one score or less. They were in those games. Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield has been about league average this season as he ranks 15th in the NFL with a QBR of 56.4. Mayfield has been good against the AFC this season as he has a TD-INT ratio of 4-0 against AFC clubs. Furthermore, his passer rating of 102.9 against the AFC is much better than his passer rating of 92.7 against the entire league. In a bit of a contrarian play, I like the Bucs to stop their losing streak and beat the Titans by at least a field goal at home on Sunday.
