Over/Under: 42.5

 

The Indianapolis Colts rallied from an early 14-point deficit on Thursday night to beat the Tennessee Titans 30-27 and stay in control of the AFC South.

 

The Colts (7-3) had their problems once again the first quarter, where in their past three ballgames have been outscored 35-0—two of them victories. They have also trailed in six games after the first quarter this season.

 

It was a nice comeback and good bounce-back game from last week’s embarrassing home loss to the St. Louis Rams 38-8.

 

At the end of the day winning is what matters,” Cots QB Andrew Luck said. “We were fortunate in this game to survive our mistakes and have a chance to win… But we know that’s got to be fixed.”

 

The Colts are 8-0 coming off a loss and have yet to lose back-to-back games under coach Chuck Pagano.

 

Obviously, starting out like that is something we’re all too familiar with,” Coby Fleener (eight catches for 107 yards) said. “That’s something we have to work and get corrected.”

They had a point to prove,” Pagano said regarding the Colts offensive linemen.

 

The Titans quickly struck back with a touchdown going 80 yards in four plays with 1:54 left, but they failed to execute on the onside kick when the ball did not travel the required 10 yards. Game over.

The Indianapolis Colts who were a constant top 5 teams in our rankings took a hit with their bad loss at the hands of the Rams, as did some other teams after Sunday and Monday night’s game. The Carolina Panthers made the biggest jump with their impressive defensive performances win at San Francisco. And Tampa Bay and Jacksonville are in the win column… finally.

NFL Prediction Week 11 Thursday Night Preview & free Pick- Colts vs. Titans

colts2

NFL Free Pick for the Colts vs Titans game

 

Indianapolis Colts (6-3) @ Tennessee Titans (4-5) 11/14- 8:25PM EST

 

Line: IND -3.0

Over/Under: 42.0

 

Two football teams coming off bad losses this past Sunday will be looking to get back on track this Thursday night in an AFC South showdown, but the bigger challenge may be for the Tennessee Titans who lost quarterback Jake Locker for the season and will rely on backup Ryan Fitzpatrick to keep them from losing four straight.

 

Jake Locker was lost for the season when he injured his right foot in the second quarter of a 29-27 loss to previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars. Locker, who has been limited to 18 career starts, could need surgery.

 

Fitzpatrick will now try to get the Titans (4-5) back to winning after what seemed like a promising start to the season before losing Jake Locker to a previous injury as the Titans sit two games behind the division leading Colts (6-3) in the AFC South.

 

We’re just concentrating on these seven weeks,” coach Mike Munchack said. “That’s all we’re concerned about. Next year is next year (with Locker). Right now we just got to go forward and try to win a game.”

 

The Titans have dropped eight of nine to the Colts and will have to face them twice in three weeks. Their last win was Oct. 30, 2011.

 

Unfortunately for the Titans, Fitzpatrick went 0-2 as a starter for the injured Locker by losing to Kansas City and Seattle completing 54.3 percent of his passes with a touchdown and four interceptions. In relief for Locker on Sunday, he performed much better going 22 of 33 for 264 yards with two touchdowns, no interceptions and ran for a touchdown as well, in the loss.

 

When it’s your turn to step up, you’ve got to step up, and that’s where we’re at,” said tight end Delanie Walker.

 

He’s going to be the starting quarterback from now on because Jake is out for the year, so Ryan has no choice but to play (well). I feel like he did a great job against the Jaguars. This is his opportunity to be the man now.”

 

With Fitzpatrick calling the signals now, he will need all the help he can get in the rushing game which will open it up for him… which means running back Chris Johnson will have to step up as well, where on Sunday’s loss he gained just 30 yards on 12 carries.

 

For the Indianapolis Colts, a blowout 38-8 loss to the Rams at home ruined every ones picks as Indianapolis committed a season-high five turnovers on Sunday’s ugly loss. Andrew Luck had three passes picked off to match the total for his first eight games combined and was sacked three more times.

 

I think all we want is to never play like that again,” tight end Colby Fleener said. “The feeling after that game was just disgust.”

 

If the Colts want to find success against the Titans, they too will have to improve upon their running game where all they were able to muster against the Rams was 18 yards.

 

Tennessee ranks 21st in the league against the run allowing 114.9 yards per game.

 

We realize how important the important the run game is to our success,” Luck said. “We’ll improve, and we’re looking forward to the Titans.”

 

Despite the Colt’s woes from Sunday’s game, they still go into Thursday’s match-up favored with a line spread of (minus) -3.0 as they look to bounce back in a big way, but be sure to check the latest betting lines up until kickoff and place your bet.

 

Certainly we’re not going to going to bury our head in the sand on this past game,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “We’ll address the issues like we always address them. We know there are things that need to be fixed and we’ll go to work on fixing those things.”

 

Expect the Colts to be a lot better on both sides of the ball on Thursday and see them being able to cover as the pressure will be on Fitzpatrick to led the Titans the rest of the way.

 

PICK: Indianapolis

Fantasy football: Week 10 Rankings

fantasysportspagepic

Up to date on eleven/10/2013 at 12:00 PM ET. 

Contrary to popular perception, the C.J. Spiller hype didn’t come out of nowhere. Spiller finished as fantasy’s No. 7 operating back final season, both by raw points and weekly average. That, along with his prodigious physical ability, underrated durability and the Bills’ new run-minded head coach made him a simple pick for prime four-5 general value.

Only issues didn’t go to plan. Having entered the season with a consecutive-video games performed streak of 37, Spiller totaled a disappointing fifty five yards from scrimmage in Week 1. He improved to 117 yards on solely 19 touches in Week 2, but issues went downhill from there, as Spiller tweaked his quad in Week three and sprained his ankle in Week four. The injuries coincided with Fred Jackson stinging two of the league’s best run defenses in the Jets and Ravens for 159 yards on solely 23 carries (6.91 YPC). Spiller should have rested for the Bills’ Thursday night time trip to Cleveland in Week 5, but as an alternative gutted out eight carries for sixty six yards, scoring a 54-yard touchdown in the process. Spiller then had 10 days to get higher for Week 6, but he didn’t, trying more ragged than he did in Week 5. He nonetheless by some means managed 55 yards on 10 carries, however appeared as limited as you’ll ever see somebody on a football subject.

Again, Spiller should have rested, but once more he didn’t, suiting up for Week 7. That is the place his season reached its nadir. Gaining all of seven yards on 9 touches, Spiller regarded like an previous man only capable of running in a straight line, checking himself out of the game and limping after every single carry. On his longest scamper, an eleven-yarder in the first quarter, Spiller prevented contact, acquired to the sideline and … kept working. In so much pain he couldn’t apply the brakes, Spiller ran a stable 10-15 yards out of bounds before motioning to the trainer. For whatever reason, Spiller stayed in the game, but went to near comical lengths to avoid contact on his final eight touches. The Payments finally obtained the message: Their running again needed a rest.

Spiller acquired one in Week eight, and lo and behold, returned rejuvenated in Week 9, speeding for a season-high 116 yards on solely 12 carries (9.7 YPC) whereas adding two catches for an additional 39 yards. A third of Spiller’s carries gained a minimum of eight yards, whereas his receptions went for 12 and 27. Spiller’s practically unmatched change-of-direction skills appeared all the way in which back, offering hope for fantasy homeowners who’ve gotten subsequent to nothing out of their first-spherical pick, and emboldening his coach to remove him from the Week 10 damage report. “When they’re off the injury report, then I really feel they’re advantageous,” Doug Marrone mentioned Wednesday. “(As) quickly as somebody comes off the injury report, I am considering that he’s full go.”

The really good news? Spiller’s return to full health comes because the Payments’ schedule is softening up. Even including the Jets’ league-main run defense, Buffalo’s ultimate seven opponents are permitting a collective four.2 yards per carry, and 119 dashing yards per recreation. When you take away the Jets, those numbers enhance to 4.3 and 127. On tap for Week 10 is the Steelers, who’re allowing a really un-Steeler like 4.2 yards per carry and 131.3 yards per sport. Marrone sounds like a man who wants to take full benefit of Spiller’s newfound well being. “I believe the more we will get his fingers on the ball, there’s an opportunity for him to make an enormous play,” Marrone said Wednesday. “In order that’s something we’re at all times striving for.”

Spiller’s season didn’t start the best way anyone wanted it to, however nevermind that. It stinks, however it occurs. All that issues now’s that he’s in excellent position to redeem himself. Might or not it’s a bit too late for some fantasy owners? Yes. However can or not it’s higher later than never for a overwhelming majority who took the first-spherical plunge? Absolutely. Spiller is a particular talent. Special abilities don’t let a foul stretch spoil their season, or Fred Jackson steal all their glory. They rise to the top, and for Spiller, the ascent should begin now.

QB Notes: Peyton Manning returns from the Broncos’ bye needing to common 320 yards per recreation to break Drew Brees’ single-season yardage document of 5,476. Presently averaging 365, Manning is on pace for five,838. San Diego enters Week 10 with the league’s No. 27 cross defense, permitting 275 yards per game. … Unusually, Brees enters Week 10 not on tempo to interrupt his own file, but he’s still properly on monitor for his fourth 5,000-yard marketing campaign. Dallas’ 31st ranked go defense isn’t going to gradual him down this weekend. Of the six 5K campaigns in NFL historical past, Brees owns three of them. Till 2008, Dan Marino was the lone member of the 5,000-yard membership. … Matthew Stafford enters Week 10 third in common fantasy quarterback points (26.2). That’s properly ahead of his disappointing 2012 average (22.eight), and only a shade behind his 2011 mark (26.5). The matchup is true in Chicago’s newly mortal protection. … Not only has Philip Rivers erased all reminiscences of his nightmarish 2012, he’s on pace for brand spanking new private bests in yards (four,946) and completion share (seventy two.7). He’s additionally on monitor for 34 scores, which would tie his profession excessive from 2008.

Coming off his second greatest fantasy effort of the season (25.7 points), Tony Romo should match wits with Drew Brees on the Superdome’s speedway. Romo underperformed in three straight plus matchups between Weeks 6-eight, but as was the case in Week 5 towards the Broncos, that received’t be an possibility towards the Saints. An enormous day is coming. … Coming off a fluky zero-touchdown effort in what was otherwise one of his finest starts of the season, Robert Griffin III will get a Vikings defense permitting the second most fantasy factors to enemy quarterbacks. Nice matchups haven’t all the time translated to fantasy success for RGIII this season, however the Vikings’ damaged-down secondary goes to supply little-to-no resistance. Fireplace him up with out a second thought. … Quietly fantasy’s No. 10 quarterback over the past five weeks, Russell Wilson gets a Falcons protection allowing the 10th most points to rival QBs though it is faced solely two prime-15 quarterbacks. Wilson would be the third.

Why does Wilson get the call over Cam Newton? It’s not a slam-dunk choice. Newton is coming off probably the greatest four-recreation stretches of his profession, but has been fattening up on the a number of the league’s most wayward teams (Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Minnesota, St. Louis). Now he will get a 49ers protection that’s not solely taking part in its best football of the season, however getting Aldon Smith back. Of course, the Niners haven’t faced a quarterback as good as Newton since Weeks 2 and three, when they misplaced to Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck. If Newton can hold his good thing going towards the very best group in football on the street, his so far career-defining streakiness might lastly be a factor of the previous. … To belief Nick Foles or not to belief Nick Foles, that’s the question. In the span of two starts, Foles has had maybe the worst efficiency by any quarterback this season, and one of the biggest video games in NFL historical past. Right here’s guessing he’ll cut up the difference in opposition to the Packers, who are extra susceptible to the move than run, and won’t be capable to stress Chip Kelly’s offense by matching points within the absence of Aaron Rodgers. Even if he will get off to a gradual start in Lambeau, one other face-plant shouldn’t be in the playing cards for Foles.

Doggedly declared a bust by each fantasy owner who couldn’t understand why he wasn’t racking up big totals in blowout wins, Colin Kaepernick has averaged 24.9 fantasy points over his past three begins, which might rank fourth on the season behind solely Manning, Brees and Stafford. Now up another weapon in the passing recreation with the return of Mario Manningham, Kaepernick should proceed to trend in the precise path even as he squares off with one of the league’s finest defenses. … In principle, as fantasy’s No. 5 quarterback over the past three weeks, Andy Dalton deserves to be larger on this listing. But as anybody who saw last Thursday evening’s game can attest, this isn’t necessarily a new Dalton. That being mentioned, as anyone who’s seen Dalton over the previous two years can attest, that is indeed a extra harmful fantasy quarterback than he’s been in the past. Thanks largely to the perfect supporting cast he’s ever had, Dalton should discover himself in the high-12 extra weeks than not, even when his on-paper talent-set remains to be prime 20, at finest. … Taking part in one of the best football of his profession, Jake Locker gets a Jaguars protection struggling against all quarterbacks, and fresh off getting demolished by twin-menace Colin Kaepernick in Week 8. Locker is an excellent bye-week streamer.

Terrelle Pryor (knee) is predicted to be effective for Sunday’s inviting matchup with the Giants. … Eli Manning has failed repeatedly to take advantage of plus matchups this season, however has one other one in a Raiders protection allowing a 68.7 completion proportion. He’s a high-end QB2. … Case Keenum has burst onto the scene like only a few have the previous few seasons, but happening the highway towards one of many league’s best defenses, he’ll be with out his play-caller Gary Kubiak. If Keenum can keep dropping bombs below these circumstances (he already has eleven completions of 25-plus yards), we’re going to have a participant flirting with QB1 worth on our fingers. … Does No. 19 seem unfathomably low for Matt Ryan? It’s, however that doesn’t imply he hasn’t earned it. The proprietor of a 2:7 TD:INT ratio and 5.91 yards per attempt over his previous two starts, Ryan goes to be onerous pressed to shake his slump against the league’s most bodily secondary. … Coming off one of the better spot starts by a 34-yr-outdated former high school coach in latest memory, Josh McCown will get a Lions cross protection allowing 273 yards per recreation. … Wait and see with E.J. Manuel. … Don’t hassle seeing with Seneca Wallace.

Contrary to well-liked belief, the C.J. Spiller hype didn’t come out of nowhere. Spiller finished as fantasy’s No. 7 working again final season, each by uncooked points and weekly average. That, alongside with his prodigious physical talent, underrated durability and the Bills’ new run-minded head coach made him an easy choose for high four-5 overall worth.

Only issues didn’t go to plan. Having entered the season with a consecutive-games performed streak of 37, Spiller totaled a disappointing 55 yards from scrimmage in Week 1. He improved to 117 yards on solely 19 touches in Week 2, however issues went downhill from there, as Spiller tweaked his quad in Week 3 and sprained his ankle in Week four. The injuries coincided with Fred Jackson stinging two of the league’s best run defenses within the Jets and Ravens for 159 yards on only 23 carries (6.ninety one YPC). Spiller ought to have rested for the Payments’ Thursday night trip to Cleveland in Week 5, but instead gutted out eight carries for sixty six yards, scoring a 54-yard touchdown in the process. Spiller then had 10 days to get better for Week 6, however he didn’t, trying extra ragged than he did in Week 5. He still in some way managed fifty five yards on 10 carries, but appeared as restricted as you’ll ever see somebody on a football subject.

Again, Spiller should have rested, however again he didn’t, suiting up for Week 7. That is the place his season reached its nadir. Gaining all of seven yards on 9 touches, Spiller regarded like an previous man solely capable of working in a straight line, checking himself out of the sport and limping after each single carry. On his longest scamper, an eleven-yarder in the first quarter, Spiller prevented contact, acquired to the sideline and … saved running. In so much pain he couldn’t apply the brakes, Spiller ran a strong 10-15 yards out of bounds before motioning to the trainer. For no matter reason, Spiller stayed in the recreation, but went to close comical lengths to keep away from contact on his last eight touches. The Payments lastly bought the message: Their running again needed a relaxation.

Spiller acquired one in Week 8, and lo and behold, returned rejuvenated in Week 9, speeding for a season-high 116 yards on solely 12 carries (9.7 YPC) while including two catches for an extra 39 yards. A 3rd of Spiller’s carries gained not less than eight yards, whereas his receptions went for 12 and 27. Spiller’s nearly unmatched change-of-route abilities appeared all the way in which again, offering hope for fantasy homeowners who have gotten next to nothing out of their first-spherical choose, and emboldening his coach to take away him from the Week 10 injury report. “When they’re off the harm report, then I really feel they’re nice,” Doug Marrone mentioned Wednesday. “(As) soon as somebody comes off the harm report, I am pondering that he is full go.”

The actually excellent news? Spiller’s return to full well being comes because the Payments’ schedule is softening up. Even including the Jets’ league-main run protection, Buffalo’s ultimate seven opponents are allowing a collective 4.2 yards per carry, and 119 speeding yards per recreation. If you take away the Jets, these numbers enhance to 4.3 and 127. On tap for Week 10 is the Steelers, who are permitting a really un-Steeler like 4.2 yards per carry and 131.3 yards per recreation. Marrone feels like a man who wants to take full advantage of Spiller’s newfound well being. “I think the extra we are able to get his palms on the ball, there’s a possibility for him to make an enormous play,” Marrone said Wednesday. “In order that’s something we’re always striving for.”

Spiller’s season didn’t begin the way anybody needed it to, but nevermind that. It stinks, but it occurs. All that issues now is that he’s in perfect place to redeem himself. Would possibly it’s a bit too late for some fantasy owners? Sure. However can or not it’s better later than never for a overwhelming majority who took the first-round plunge? Absolutely. Spiller is a special talent. Special skills don’t let a foul stretch ruin their season, or Fred Jackson steal all their glory. They rise to the highest, and for Spiller, the ascent should begin now.

RB Notes: It was about this time last season that Adrian Peterson went on the warpath. Coming off one among his best games of 2013, the matchup is correct in a Redskins run protection allowing a weekly 117 yards, and over a touchdown per sport. … Though solely AD is averaging more dashing yards per sport, LeSean McCoy has seen his fantasy stock fall as he’s found the tip zone just once in his previous four games. It’s a fluke, and one that should right itself if Chip Kelly’s offense can construct on final week’s beatdown of the Raiders. … Tied with McCoy for the second most yards from scrimmage per recreation (121.9), Reggie Bush goes to feast on a Bears defense permitting shockingly dangerous numbers to opposing runners over the past 5 weeks (754 yards rushing, 9 touchdowns). … Coming off his finest sport of the season (24 carries for one hundred twenty five yards and a landing, 179 yards from scrimmage), Matt Forte enters Week 10 as fantasy’s No. 1 running again over the previous three weeks. Allowing 4.7 yards per carry, the Lions aren’t going to gradual him down, no matter who’s under center for Chicago.

By Pro Football Focus’ rely, Marshawn Lynch’s 44 “missed tackles” are probably the most in the league by 12. … Eddie Lacy’s 545 yards dashing are probably the most in the league by seventy four over the past five weeks. There’s not going to be any mystery about the Packers’ sport plan towards the Eagles with out Aaron Rodgers, but that doesn’t mean Philly goes to be able to stop it. Lacy is a beast who’s working like he by no means left the SEC. … Third in the league in dashing yards per recreation? Alfred Morris, whose 5.2 yards per carry continues to lead all operating backs (he’s behind Terrelle Pryor and Russell Wilson). He’s not going to face much resistance in opposition to a Vikings protection that may’t stop anything. … Frank Gore has 4 touchdowns over his past two games, but is squaring off with a Panthers run defense allowing simply 79.1 yards per game and 3.7 yards per carry. Gore’s quantity retains him within the top 10, but he doesn’t have the top-five upside he’s been sporting most weeks. … Is Knowshon Moreno’s RB1 status dwelling on borrowed time? Averaging simply 2.ninety one yards per carry over his previous three games/43 totes, Moreno was ominously out-touched 3-1 by Montee Ball on aim-line carries in Week 8. Moreno should preserve at the least RB2 value, but he’s not a nasty sell-high candidate.

So that’s what it’s like when Chris Johnson tries? Coming off his best sport of the season, CJ2K now will get a Jaguars defense allowing the second most factors to enemy working backs. Jax is permitting a comical 161.8 dashing yards per sport, and has been stung for thirteen scores on the bottom. All of it units up very well for Johnson’s Week 10 prospects, though it’s worth noting that neither of his Week 9 TDs have been of the “purpose-line” variety. Johnson scored from 14 and 19 yards out. Shonn Greene really out-carried Johnson 3-0 inside the Rams’ 10-yard line. As was the plan all alongside, Greene appears to be Tennessee’s brief-yardage hammer. It’s a touch of grey to Johnson’s seeming resurrection as he embarks on the gentle portion of his schedule. … If not for Eddie Lacy, no participant would have extra rushing yards over the previous 5 weeks than Zac Stacy. Coming off back-to-again a hundred twenty five-yard efforts on the bottom, Stacy will do battle with Indianapolis’ No. 27 run defense. The centerpiece of the Rams offense is a viable RB1 for Week 10. … Is it time to trust Lamar Miller? The survey says yes after Miller turned his two largest workloads of the season into 241 yards from scrimmage and 5.71 yards per carry. Daniel Thomas is a zombie who nonetheless received’t go away (23 touches the past two weeks), however he’s lastly driving obvious shotgun to Miller’s driver. You drafted Miller as your RB2, now use him as such.

Averaging simply 3.5 yards per carry coming into Week 9, Mike James exploded for 28-158 against the Seattle freakin’ Seahawks. It was a shocking blow up for an unproven player stuck in an undesirable situation, however James can have a chance to build on it against the Dolphins, who are allowing essentially the most fantasy factors to opposing operating backs. Rival RBs are averaging 24.5 factors per sport towards the Fins, and have totaled 1,319 yards from scrimmage in eight contests. James will need the Bucs to avoid getting put away early to have an enormous night time on the nationwide stage, however the Dolphins haven’t buried anybody lately. He’s value an RB2 dice roll coming off what might very easily find yourself the very best sport of his career. … Fantasy’s No. 22 working back thanks nearly solely to his 49/391/three line as a receiver, Danny Woodhead is doing battle with a Broncos defense allowing a superb but not nice four.5 catches per sport to opposing runners. Woodhead has proven sufficient to be trusted as a FLEX option even in robust matchups. … Giovani Bernard (ribs) is on track for his ordinary function in opposition to the Ravens.

Nevermind Rashard Mendenhall’s (toe) well being/position. Andre Ellington is going to push 15 touches per game from here on out, and that interprets to actual FLEX worth for a participant averaging 7.7 yards per carry, and eight.17 yards per contact. … With Arian Foster (again, hamstring, who is aware of what else) wanting unlikely for Week 10, Ben Tate (ribs) will gut issues out as the Texans’ lead back for the second consecutive week. He should get a goal-line look or two, however doesn’t have a simple task in a Cardinals protection permitting solely 3.47 yards per carry. He’ll be backed up by Dennis Johnson. … Contemplate Week 9 our newest humbling reminder: Never trust Ryan Mathews as more than a FLEX possibility. We apologize for final week’s error. … Trent Richardson has a plus matchup in St. Louis, however he’s had no scarcity of plus matchups as a Colt and remains to be averaging simply 2.98 yards per carry. We’ll take into account his free-fall over when we see it. … You may do worse for an emergency FLEX choice than Rashad Jennings. … As is the case with T-Wealthy, consider Ray Rice’s slump over when you see it. His Week 9 performance was a significant, main concern coming off Baltimore’s bye week. … Peyton Hillis will supposedly lead the Giants’ committee this Sunday. Meaning you could wait Andre Brown out for at the very least one week. … If at all doable, keep away from the Panthers’ burgeoning committee against the 49ers’ stout run protection.

WR Notes: Since returning to a full workload in Week 7, Calvin Johnson has caught 23 passes for 484 yards and three touchdowns. The yards would rank 34th for the season, and ahead of the likes of Mike Wallace, Larry Fitzgerald and plenty of, many others. … No one within the NFL is extra overdue to explode for a monster sport than Dez Bryant. Here’s guessing he’ll have one in a shootout in New Orleans. … A.J. Green entered Week 6 mired in a four-recreation hunch. Four weeks later, he’s main the league in receiving due to a forty four/501/2 outburst in Weeks 6-9. The Ravens aren’t going to slow him down. … Demaryius Thomas’ 2013 hasn’t generated a complete lot of buzz, but he enters Week 10 No. 6 in common fantasy receiver factors, and on tempo to roughly equal his ninety four/1,434/10 2012 with a 96/1,370/12 2013. Thomas has forty four more yards after the catch than anybody within the NFL. … Held beneath seventy five yards only twice all season, Brandon Marshall is on pace for his fifth career 100-catch campaign, and third straight 1,200-yard season. Marshall has cleared 1,000 yards every year since 2007.

Wes Welker has caught fewer than six passes only twice, and been held out of the tip zone in precisely one in all eight video games. … Andre Johnson has caught 13 passes for 318 yards and three touchdowns since Case Keenum took over at quarterback. The duo seems to be a match made in heaven. Johnson now leads the league in yards per move route run at 2.86 … Pierre Garcon’s lengthy overdue yardage explosion lastly came in Week 9, and he could easily make it back-to-again monster efforts in opposition to a Vikings defense allowing the ninth most factors to opposing receivers. Garcon has caught fewer than six passes just as soon as in 2013, and been held below 5 catches only one time in his past thirteen video games. … Leading the league in receptions with sixty one, expect Antonio Brown to answer his Week 9 benching with a vengeance towards a Payments team allowing the second most fantasy factors to enemy wideouts. … Fantasy’s No. 5 receiver over the previous five weeks, Keenan Allen hasn’t been held below 67 yards in any of his past 5 video games, and is averaging a weekly 6.2/ninety nine. There’s an enormous day available against a Broncos defense permitting the third most passing yards within the league.

Quietly fantasy’s No. 2 receiver over the past 5 weeks, issues aren’t going to remain quiet for T.Y. Hilton much longer. Now the focus of the Colts’ aerial attack, Hilton should common 10-12 weekly targets in an each-down role. If you give a participant with Hilton’s large-play potential that many seems, big video games — like his three-landing effort in Week 9 — are positive to comply with. The Rams’ highly burnable secondary is simply dying to serve up lengthy completions. … Victor Cruz’s (neck) Week 9 standing is a bit up in the air, but he’ll be a giant-time menace for a WR1 afternoon in opposition to the Raiders’ Laissez-faire secondary if he can go well with up. … One of many league’s easiest receivers this season, it’s painful to rank Jordy Nelson so low, however so is life in a Seneca Wallace-led offense. Nelson might nonetheless easily show his rating improper, however the potential for a dud is there for a player who almost by no means has them. … Torrey Smith has cooled a bit following his torrid begin, but has nonetheless been held under seventy five yards only twice in eight video games. Second within the league in yards per catch at 19.6, he’s going to eat most of the time.

Now the Jaguars’ unquestioned No. 1 receiver following Justin Blackmon’s newest suspension, Cecil Shorts has a tricky Week 10 matchup in the Titans’ No. 7 go defense, but could have garbage time to fall again on if he’s locked up out of the gate. … Larry Fitzgerald is as healthy as he’s been all season, but there’s no guaranteeing it would translate to more fantasy worth with Carson Palmer below center. Fitz is averaging four.5 catches for fifty nine yards … Mike Wallace is quietly averaging 5.3 catches for 76 yards over his past four games after averaging three.eight/forty four in his first 4, but nonetheless has only one landing on the season. That’s not what the Dolphins or fantasy house owners had in mind. With Darrelle Revis rising his press protection in recent weeks, Wallace could possibly be in for a long Monday night. … A giant part of Denarius Moore’s turnaround has been his improved palms. Moore has dropped only one cross after muffing nine a yr in the past, and boasts a fifty eight.2 catch share after delivering a forty six.4 mark in 2012. Moore is on tempo for 64 catches, 1,026 yards and eight touchdowns. All three totals can be new career highs.

With 13 catches for 186 yards and a landing over his past two games, Emmanuel Sanders is a strong WR3 bet towards a Payments protection that’s been getting burned all season long. … Golden Tate is averaging eight.three yards after every one in every of his catches, which leads the league. The issue, in fact, is that his 35 catches rank simply forty third. … Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) is finally on track to return, however can be doing so towards Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner and the remainder of Seattle’s elite protection. Together with his well being nonetheless a question mark, he’s the lowest end of WR3s. … Marvin Jones was held to four catches for 66 yards in Week 9, however had a long landing referred to as again by a dubious holding penalty, and noticed his snap share leap from 32.7 to 53.7. The red-zone dynamo is value another shot as your WR3. … With Roddy White again and Seattle in town, the dream is shortly dying for garbage-time hero Harry Douglas. … Averaging 5.3 catches for 59 yards over his past three video games, Kris Durham is a WR4 who could be referred to as on in a WR3 pinch. … With not less than 88 yards in three of his past 4 video games, Riley Cooper has improved himself from WR5 cube roll to WR4 dice roll.

TE Notes: Jimmy Graham: Over his foot concern. Graham and A.J. Green are the league’s only receivers with at the least 5 a hundred-yard games this season. … Held under six catches simply once in his past five games, Antonio Gates will do battle with a Broncos defense allowing the ninth most fantasy points to tight ends. … With Jimmy Graham being the opposite, Vernon Davis is considered one of only two tight ends averaging greater than 12 fantasy factors per sport. Davis is putting up a weekly thirteen.4. … Julius Thomas’ ankle injury appears unlikely to hold him out for Week 10. Averaging eleven.6 fantasy points, Thomas has been held out of the end zone just twice in eight games. … Jordan Reed’s four-catch, 37-yard Week 9 was nothing greater than a mediocre sport. All good gamers have them once in a while. Reed stays locked in as a excessive-finish TE1.

Drawing extra defensive consideration than perhaps any player in the league, Tony Gonzalez will still have TE1 outbursts just like the one he did in Week 9, but his dud price might be larger than it’s been previously. Gonzalez’s upside is such that he stays a prime 6-eight play. … Martellus Bennett gets a Lions crew he stung for eight catches and 90 yards in Week 4, solely this time, the sport is at Soldier Subject. … Averaging an excellent however not great 4.3/fifty three.3, Greg Olsen isn’t a high-upside play as he troopers by means of a foot injury against a 49ers staff allowing the fifth fewest fantasy factors to opposing tight ends. … Tampa’s Tim Wright is averaging four.6 catches over his previous five games, and now will get a Miami defense permitting the third most fantasy points to enemy tight ends. He’s a legit TE1 in every week the place Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Cameron are on bye.

The matchup is true for Garrett Graham — no workforce is permitting extra fantasy factors to tight ends than Arizona — but with only one 5-catch or 60-yard game on his résumé, he’s arduous to trust as more than a bottom-barrel TE1. … Coby Fleener’s role will continue to extend, however until we actually see it translate to elevated box-score productiveness, he’s nothing greater than a cube-roll TE1. … Charles Clay and Heath Miller have both settled in as acceptable plug-and-play starters, but little else. They are gamers who won’t hurt you, however ones you might want to upgrade. … Until all you want is a shot at a random landing, Zach Miller isn’t your man. … If you have been beginning Kyle Rudolph — which might have been an issue — hopefully you can do better than John Carlson for a alternative. … Zach Ertz’s Week 9 shouldn’t be taken as an indication of issues to come back. … The same is true for Andrew Quarless.

After all, the Falcons offense won’t have Julio Jones both, Jones was placed on injured reserve on Oct. 9 after fracturing his foot in Week 5 against the Jets.

DeMarco Murray and DeMarcus Ware are each uncertain in Week 7

Roddy White won’t be the only participant missing the primary sport of his profession, Cowboys defensive finish DeMarcus Ware may too.

Report: Locker to start for Titans

Three weeks after being carted off the field, Jake Locker will be back and starting on Sunday. (USATSI)
Three weeks after being carted off the sphere, Jake Locker might be again and starting on Sunday. (USATSI)

Apparently Jake Locker is a fast healer. Just three weeks after struggling what gave the impression to be a severe hip damage, Locker will be back on the sector as the Titans starting quarterback when Tennessee hosts San Francisco on Sunday, in accordance with NFL.com.

Locker was carted off the sector in Tennessee’s Week four win over the Jets with a what gave the impression to be a critical hip injury. The damage was identified as a sprained hip and the Titans thought they have been going to lose Locker for a ‘few weeks.’ Now it seems like they’re going to only have misplaced Locker for 2 weeks.

During Friday’s apply, Locker took nearly all of the primary staff reps and stated he needed to play towards San Francisco. The third-year quarterback was formally listed as questionable on Tennessee’s final damage report this week.

Titans coach Mike Munchak did not rule out Locker probably starting when he spoke with the media on Friday, “We’ve not decided yet,” Munchak mentioned when asked who the beginning quarterback could be on Sunday.

With a healthy Locker, the Titans have appeared like a potential playoff crew. The Titans had been three-1 and tied for first with Indianapolis within the AFC South earlier than Locker went down. After Locker was injured, Ryan Fitzpatrick took over at quarterback and went zero-2 with losses to Seattle and Kansas City.

As most quarterbacks have this season, Fitzpatrick struggled in opposition to the Seahawks No. 2 ranked defense and the Chiefs fifth-ranked protection.

Earlier than taking place in Week four, Locker had already thrown six touchdown passes on the season, only 4 off his career-excessive for a season.

If Locker can get by way of the 49ers sport unscathed, he’ll have a week off earlier than Tennessee plays again. The Titans have a Week 8 bye adopted by a Week 9 recreation in St. Louis.

Titans QB Locker questionable, but wants to play

Jake Locker apparently is a quick healer. (USATSI)
Jake Locker apparently is a quick healer. (USATSI)

When Titans starting quarterback Jake Locker took a tough hit from Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson in Week 4, injuring his hip and proper knee, the team believed Locker would possibly miss the subsequent 4 to eight weeks.

Except Locker practiced all this week, and on Friday, he really took extra reps than interim starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. Naturally, Locker, who’s officially listed as questionable on the harm report, desires to play this Sunday vs. the 49ers.

Coach Mike Munchak, though, would not say if he would.

“We have not decided but,” Munchak stated, through the Tennessean. “We aren’t really leaning any manner. It’s just Jake has carried out effectively. He has been capable of do every little thing we needed him to do, so now we need to spend a while with him, discuss as an offense, and decide what we expect is best for Sunday.”

The very fact Fitzpatrick hasn’t performed significantly properly since taking over the team – and since Locker has played some of his greatest football this season – most likely will not help Fitzpatrick’s trigger.

Locker continues to be carrying a knee brace, and reporters have noticed that he is nonetheless walking with a slight limp. But the reviews of Locker from practice have been constructive, even when he advised reporters on Thursday that “there are particular issues that don’t feel regular but.”

Munchak, though, additionally didn’t rule out the concept that Locker may take back his beginning position this Sunday.

“We actually want to get a very good feeling on what he feels he can do well and what his limitations is likely to be,” the coach said. “Those are the things that may go into it now. … I think each have gotten sufficient work where ether one among them could play on Sunday. We just need to finish up some talks and make a decision.”

Tight end Rob Gronkowski has missed the entire season with forearm and again accidents to this point, and there have been conflicting reports about his availability for Sunday’s huge residence recreation towards the New Orleans Saints. Gronkowski formally is listed as questionable.

On the optimistic aspect, broad receiver Danny Amendola (groin) and operating again Stevan Ridley (knee) — also each questionable — appear solid bets to play.

But defensive sort out Tommy Kelly, alternatively, didn’t apply all week and was dominated out with a knee injury. Also out is returner Leon Washington.

Carolina Panthers at Minnesota Vikings: Panthers defensive tackle Dwan Edwards and security Robert Lester each have hamstring accidents and are uncertain. Tight end Greg Olsen just needed a couple of days off with a foot injury; he’s probable and can play. The Vikings’ greatest worry is if kicker Blair Walsh (non-kicking hamstring), who is questionable, can go. If not, rookie punter Jeff Locke will kick.

The following man up can be versatile fullback Marcel Reece (knee), who’s probable. The Chiefs’ tight ends are banged up. Travis Kelce (knee) is out, Anthony Fasano (ankle/knee) is uncertain and Sean McGrath (knee) is probable. The perfect news they received all week is when Justin Houston (concussion) was upgraded to possible.

Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Michael Vick (hamstring) is listed as questionable, but there is a sense that the group won’t risk it and as a substitute will begin Nick Foles in his place. For the Bucs, receiver Mike Williams is questionable with a hamstring injury.

On Monday, Jets coach Rex Ryan defended Wilkerson.

“Obviously, it was unfortunate,” Ryan said. “Clearly, in my view, I thought Muhammad did what you are supposed to do – lower your target. He did that. Clearly, there wasn’t a malicious intent on his part at all. For my part, I believed it was a clean hit.”

Before the harm, Locker accomplished 18 of 24 passes for 149 yards with three touchdowns and a a hundred thirty.zero passer ranking. It was the first three-TD sport of his profession.

Locker gave a slight wave as the cart neared the tunnel exiting the sector. Veteran backup Ryan Fitzpatrick took his place and went three-of-eight for 108 yards and a landing.
