***Indy(5-3) at Tennessee(6-2) +1 (49) TNF***


Recommended Posts

Would seem like a good night for the Titans if you feel like they will take the lead and put the Colts a little further into their rearview mirror. The Titans have a pretty nice record since Tannehill took over and if you feel they win tonight then this spread is meaningless at about 1 point. The Titans have been in a lot of close games and are 3-5 ATS on the season. The Colts are a borderline PLayof team, they have very few weapons that can really hurt you from what they've displayed. 

I see this going to Tennessee, even in a tight game, 24-21 seems logical, 51 seems like a lot tonight for a TNF game. I actually feel like Tennessee could win by a lot more but again most of their games have been close. 

Sleeper tonight could be Trey Burton with Doyle out? I am aware of Mo Allie but it doesn't seem like they view him as highly as some who play FF. 

Corey Davis fell off the map last week after a season high. AJ Brown racked all his points int he 1st half last week, he looks so beastly when he is gaining YAC. 

I don't think I would want to start either QB this week.

It is amazing that him and DK played on the same college team at the same time. Two of the most impressive physical specimens at there positions in the NFL.

Was a perfect QB hit in my eyes. Cant hit the QB too high or too low these days. Facemask right in the chest.

That's a TD if A.J. gets it clean.   Can't be dropping those, A.J.

Many of you play in leagues where you have Flex spots, I'm sure many of you have figured this out over the years but you run a risk of locking up roster spots prior to TNF games going off and then you're stuck. Or you play against owners that can't seem to understand how these things work. 

-Example is tonight, if you're not gonna use the Titans Def/ST or Gostkowski, you should just cut them and give yourself some roster flexibility going into the weekend. Same would go for skill guys you don't think you will play. Maybe THill has been your QB2 all year, he has a tougher schedule coming up, if you're not likely to play him then why not trade him on the WW for something better? 

-Next obvious to some but not all are these Flex spots. You never want to lock up a Flex spot on a TNF game IMHO. Lots of things can happen between Thursday and Sunday plus Flex spots can typically be filled by RB/WR and TE spots so if you're going to play a WR in the flex, better to slide him into one of the 2-3-4 starting slots, just gives you more flexibility on Sunday Morning. 

I also hate when I make a big mistake on a TNF and have to look at it all day on Friday, again on Saturday and even going into Sunday Morning it just messes with you.

I'm surprised how many Don't do this.

Yeah some sites like FFPC let you still move between flex and position starting spots, even after they've played. Still locked into starting v bench, of course. I wish more sites would do that. 

I saw 48.5 for the over under and I'm leaning under. Not a line I would target though. 51 might nudge me.

Yeah, you don't want to lock in a flex spot if you can start a player at a position. That's all I've got, really.

My dynasty league is 1-5 RB, 2-5 WR, 2-5 TE so it likely doesn't really apply here. They just must be valid lineups. The other redrafts I'm in, though, there are spots you don't want locked. I generally set the latest game in flex.

Like I said in the Corey Davis thread and Pitchfork has posted: Corey Davis's brother died yesterday from cancer. RIP, Titus. Corey is playing tonight, though who knows what must be going through his mind.

Should be a good, tough game. Looking forward to it.

Yeah I don’t know where it’s 51.  I’ve seen 49 or 48.5

Expectations for AJ Brown tonight?

 

A lot of folks are hollering Corey Davis tonight after he blanked last week and after he had his biggest game of the season. 

I feel like AJB will be a big part of the plan tonight, he's so talented when he gets the ball in his hands.

What have I missed? 

Get a beer and tuck in tight because it looks we have a meaningful Thursday Night game and that means Golden Troy quotes throughout the telecast. He'll slobber all over Tannehill and Rivers most likely. He likes what their doing, what they've been doing and what they're going to do, in very general terms and statements until he has to backtrack all those nice things he says early in the game.

I’m happy for Tannehill.

I enjoy Rivers intensity - every sport needs a red ### who hates to lose more than he likes to win.

AJ Brown draws a crowd, he really caught it a split second before it could have been intercepted, it was a fast dig route and AJ is so good at accelerating after the catch. 

You should watch him even if you don't have a betting angle on him, he's worth the price of admission.

Really sweet play design

I like that they didn't try and force feed Henry. i think they are even stronger when they get Tannehill up and going early and can start handing it to Henry when they already have a lead, so much easier to run the football and get him some of those back breaker like runs.

How in the heck does the Titans field look so bad?

Weather has been good. No other use on it other than the Titans. That thing should look pristine. 

It's been fairly wet. 

Still should have a better looking field.

Yeah, colts were probably figuring quick handoff to Henry, then they bring the TE in motion across to his side to see how they react, then tannehill rolls out, then dumps it off.  So much going on there, makes it really hard on the defense

Agreed, plus the defense generally focuses on Henry. Open things up a bit then let him knock em over.

So the Colts pass on a potential 47 yd FG attempt, I assume they might have made it. 

That could be big later on. 

I smell the Titans blowing this open early whether they stay ahead not sure but I see 14-0 coming. 

Really dumb, aggressive move twice on that drive.  When I see that kind of risk it tells me Reich doesn't believe his team is the better team.

Really bad playcall. Barely made it only due to Wilkins breaking a tackle before. Then you run basically the same heavy formation run?
