Tennessee Titans: 9th (up 15 spots from 2019)
Bhanpuri’s best quote:
"I recently heard a rumor that at least 37 DBs contemplated retirement this offseason after helplessly chasing after Brown and Henry last year. Holy hell, is there an RB-WR combo more frightening running with the ball than this one?"
If Ryan Tannehill can even come close to his production in 2020, then the Titans will have one of the top-5 triplets in the NFL.
Right now, I would argue that Tannehill is a top-10 QB in the NFL. Removing Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers, that leaves five spots left in that top-10 group.
You can pencil in Deshaun Watson (even though we have never seen him succeed without an elite WR until this year), but after that, I can’t really see an argument for anyone being clearly better than Tannehill based on everything we have seen from him in Tennessee.
Derrick Henry is undoubtedly a top-2 running back in the NFL, and anyone arguing against that is just being a contrarian.
I have written before the A.J. Brown was incredibly efficient with his yards after the catch, but even if he regresses he will still be a Pro Bowler in 2020. Just adjusting to average passing volume he could still end up somewhere between 1,200 and 1,600 yards receiving depending on how far his YAC regresses.
If Brown joins Tannehill and Henry as Pro Bowl players in 2020, how is this trio anything short of top-5?
