Titans Fantasy Outlooks

Chris Raybon breaks down offensive coordinator Arthur Smith’s playcalling tendencies to forecast who will benefit most.

  • Derrick Henry’s usage resembled what you’d expect from a bruising grinder who doesn’t do much in the passing game. Henry averaged 17.8 touches, 105.3 yards, and 0.65 in six games as a favorite, but 12.5 touches, 56 yards, 0.4 TDs in 10 games as an underdog.
  • Matt LaFleur was able to squeeze a better season out of Corey Davis by tripling his slot snaps from 10.3% in Year 1 to 30.2% in Year 2. Davis averaged 2.05 yards per route run from the slot compared to 1.83 out wide. He scored a TD every 19.5 targets from the slot but every 54.0 targets out wide. So what did the Titans do? Go out and get the top slot receiver in free agency. Adam Humphries not only bested Davis in PPR points per game, 11.79-11.48, but in standard as well (7.56-7.41). It wouldn’t be a shock if that happened again.
  • The big loser could be Dion Lewis. With Delanie Walker back and the Titans set to feature fewer 2TE personnel and more 3WR to feature Humphries, blocking responsibilities will fall more on the RBs. Lewis blocked on 17.4% of pass snaps last season, while the Titans’ main No. 2 tight end, Luke Stocker, did so on 38.0% of pass snaps. Walker blocked on none of his 27 pass snaps before going down and has blocked on only 4.7% of pass snaps since Mariota was drafted. The reality is, players that we dub “third-down backs” tend to get a lot of their work on early downs: Lewis caught 47 balls on first- and second-down last season, but with Henry eating up more of those snaps, Lewis’s only spikes in pass-game usage may be limited to true hurry-up situations when the defense is sitting back in prevent and there’s no threat of a pass rush.
