Corey Davis reportedly OUT; A.J. Brown gets a bump in fantasy
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis will be ruled out in Week 10, according to a report.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis will reportedly be ruled out for the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, which gives a serious bump in fantasy football to fellow wideout A.J. Brown.
Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky has the latest on Davis’ status for Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Davis popped up on the injury report on Wednesday with a hip injury and was listed as doubtful on Friday, and that injury designation is never a good sign for a player’s hopes of suiting up.
We got a pretty good confirmation on Saturday that Davis wouldn’t suit up, as the Titans made a roster move and promoted fellow wideout Cody Hollister to the 53-man roster.
While Corey Davis has been disappointing overall this season, his absence means there will be some extra targets to go around.
One of the biggest beneficiaries of those extra targets to be had should be rookie wide receiver, A.J. Brown. Brown has seen 18 targets in his last three games and has become a favorite target of quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Expect the Titans quarterback to lean even more on his favorite receiver this week with Davis out, and this matchup has the potential to be a good one with Tennessee likely to be chasing points for much of the afternoon.
In two of his three starts, Tannehill has thrown for over 300 yards, and in each of those games Brown totaled the most and second-most targets he has seen in any game this season, en route to 145 receiving yards and one touchdown.
If you’re looking for a deeper dive in fantasy, slot receiver Adam Humphries could also see more opportunities.
Humphries has been more involved in the Titans’ offense since Tannehill took over, and his 65 receiving yards in Week 9 was the second-most he has posted in a game this season. If Brown gets extra attention, Humphries could flourish.
