Biggest takeaways from Mike Vrabel’s Week 1 press conference

On Corey Davis and A.J. Brown
I am very happy that A.J. Brown had a great game and I agree with everyone who has said that he looks like the real deal. However, don’t forget that Corey Davis is still the WR1.
The Titans did a great job finding Brown and when he had the ball, Brown did a great job fighting for YAC. I think he finished somewhere near 50 yards that were made after the catch and Tennessee has to be proud of what he has been able to do despite missing some of camp.
However, Corey Davis is routinely praised as one of the most important run blockers on the team which he was again today:
I absolutely agree with this, and if you think I am being to generous to Corey Davis let me ask you something. Do you think the best plan on offense with Dennis Kelly and Jamil Douglas starting, was to set up and take even more deep shots than they took? No, right?
Some days will be planned to where Davis should get 5-10 targets. However, some days you just hit other guys on designed shots or you hit someone like Brown who is exceptional after the catch and you let him make his own explosive plays.
If you have Corey Davis on your fantasy team, it is alright to be a little nervous, but if you are worried about him not being good at actual football, I can promise you that isn’t a concern.
