2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Tennessee Titans

- Updated: Saturday, July 27th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Tennessee Titans.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Marcus Mariota429.4289.83220.515.8910.7464.7362.32.59222.67
The next time that Mariota plays a full 16-game season will be his first. While he expects to play at roughly 230 pounds this season, Mariota has missed eight games over the past four seasons. In Tennessee's run-first offense, Mariota threw for 180.6 yards per game and 11 touchdowns, both of which were career lows. Over the past two seasons, Mariota has thrown nearly as many interceptions (23) as touchdowns (24). Even though he has rushed for more than 300 yards in each of the past three seasons, he's not much more than a back-end QB2.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Derrick Henry272.5119912.2612.992.90.39205.09
In today's passing league, only a handful of teams make their lead back their offensive focal point the way the Titans will in 2019. As much as Henry disappointed for the majority of 2018, he was nothing short of dominant down the stretch. Failing to reach 60 rushing yards in any of his first 12 games, Henry blew up over the last four weeks of the season. During that last quarter stretch of 2018, Henry amassed 585 rushing yards and seven touchdowns and scored the most fantasy points among running backs during that span. The four-game suspension of left tackle Taylor Lewan knocks Henry down a spot or two in my rankings, but the contract-year back is a legitimate threat to lead the NFL in rushing and is a high-upside RB2.
Dion Lewis99.9384.61.2544.3314.51.7788.03
The full-season workload split last year was fairly close -- 230 touches for Henry and 214 for Lewis. In addition, Lewis set career highs as a receiver with 59 receptions and 400 yards and Henry was essentially a non-factor in the passing game with just 15 catches all season. That said, Lewis shouldn't be viewed as much more than a change-of-pace option to Henry as I project roughly one-third of the touches to go to Lewis (33.6 percent).

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Corey Davis63.8835.84.474.533.80.05114.08
Davis dominated targets last season (112, 25.63 percent), but Delanie Walker missed almost all of 2018 and now the Titans have added A.J. Brown and Adam Humphries to the mix. In a run-heavy offense, the former top-five pick may struggle to build upon his 65/891/4 line in year three although the talent is there for him to outperform my current projections.
A.J. Brown41.3487.33.32.714.90.0470.26
College teammate D.K. Metcalf got more attention leading up to the NFL Draft, but Brown was the more productive Ole Miss receiver. The school's all-time leader in receiving yards (2,984) and 100-yard games (12), Brown has better dynasty value than he does in re-draft leagues. Outside of deeper leagues, there isn't much fantasy viability for the third option in the passing game (behind Corey Davis and Delanie Walker) in Tennessee's run-first offense.
Adam Humphries49.4521.22.471.87.9067.73
Setting career highs last season with 76 catches for 816 yards and five touchdowns, Humphries now has at least 55 catches for more than 600 yards in three consecutive seasons. In an offense that led the NFL in passing yards, Humphries was a top-30 wide receiver (PPR and half-PPR scoring). The transition from Tampa's high-powered aerial assault to Tennessee's ground-and-pound approach means it's unlikely he extends his streak of 55/600 seasons to four.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Delanie Walker53.2617.13.7200084.03
Walker (ankle) played just one game in 2018, but he had more than 100 targets and at least 800 yards every year from 2014 to 2017. Entering his age-35 season and coming off a serious injury, Walker's days of 100-plus targets and 800-plus yards may be over, but he's a borderline TE1/TE2 in a weak position group.
