Titans (+3) @ Packers (-170): O/U 41
The Titans and Packers square off in a Thursday night game that could have some pretty big playoff implications. Tennessee is hanging on to a narrow lead in the division over a potentially resurgent Colts team, meanwhile the Packers are one game out of the wildcard hunt. The Packers looked like a competent and competitive team in their matchup with the Cowboys last week, which should help make this TNF game a rather appealing contest for fantasy GMs. Both defenses have strengths, but are exploitable in certain aspects. The Titans rank second-best against the run this year, but second-worst against the pass. The Packers rank third for fewest passing yards allowed per game, but have been allowing the seventh-most rushing yards each game. Both sides of the ball should be able to take advantage of these defensive weaknesses, making for some strong fantasy plays on Thursday.
Tannehill is a mediocre starting option in the matchup against the Packers this week and their run-funnel defense. Although his numbers likely won’t be spectacular, he is more than capable of producing a game similar to his Week 10 numbers. In his return to action against the tough Broncos defense, Tannehill threw for 255 yards and two touchdowns. In a week with four regular starting fantasty QBs on bye, Tannehill should slide in somewhere in the QB 10-to-15 range.
The Titans offense runs through Henry and has done so for a few years. He is the RB5 on the season and will always remain a must-start in all formats, especially against the bottom-seven rushing defense of the Packers. He has rushed for at least 82 yards or a touchdown in all but one game this year, averaging 19.7 fantasy points per game in PPR formats.
