Fantasy start or sit Week 3: Derrick Henry, Corey Davis, Titans D/ST
We’re going to take a look at some fantasy football start or sit advice in Week 3 for Derrick Henry, Corey Davis, and the Titans D/ST.
If you’re a fantasy owner of running back Derrick Henry and/or the Tennessee Titans D/ST, you’re happy with what you’ve seen so far after two weeks.
If you’re an owner of wide receiver Corey Davis, you’re not feeling great about your investment.
So, what should you do with these three fantasy assets in Week 3?

Derrick Henry: Start
If there’s one player you can just leave in your lineup every week and not even think about it, it’s Henry. Despite a poor showing overall from the Titans offense in Week 2, Henry still managed to post 15.3 fantasy points.
Henry now has 46.2 points through two weeks, and he’s averaging 23.1 fantasy points per game, both good for fourth-most among running backs.
A Week 3 matchup with the Jags isn’t the most favorable one, as Jacksonville has allowed the eighth fewest fantasy points per week to the position. However, you might remember that Henry torched the Jags in Week 14 of last season for 238 yards and four touchdowns.
Corey Davis: Sit
It might be a wise idea to stay away from every Titans pass-catcher not named Delanie Walker right now. Titans receivers as a whole have just 15 catches for 167 yards through two weeks, and Davis’ three catches, eight targets and 38 receiving yards rank third, third, and fourth, respectively.
Not to mention, all 38 of those yards came in Week 2 after Davis posted a donut in Week 1. Until we see Davis have that breakout game in 2019 and the Titans passing attack shows some signs of life, you’re best off keeping him on your bench.
The sad part is that Davis’ lack of production isn’t all on him. Sure, he’s had at least one drop, but there have also been some plays where Mariota has simply missed an open Davis.
Titans D/ST: Start
Through the first two weeks of this season, the Tennessee Titans defense has eight sacks and four interceptions, and it’s the first time since 2008 and the third time in franchise history a Titans/Oilers defense has done that.
This group has the makings of something special in 2019, and outside of a few hiccups against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2, this group was once again sensational.
Week 3 draws a matchup with a Jaguars offense that is tied for the fourth-most giveaways and is scoring just 19 points per game. Opposing D/STs are also averaging 9.5 fantasy points per game against the Jags.
