Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings
Derrick Henry Note

Henry led the NFL in carries, rushing yards, and touchdowns last season, and continued to smash into the playoffs. With Ryan Tannehill back under center and continuity along the offensive line (other than the swap of Jack Conklin for Isaiah Wilson), there's every reason for Henry to have a big year. He'll never factor in heavily in the passing game so has more value in standard rather than half- or full-PPR formats. But he's a strong RB1 with little risk regardless.

A.J. Brown Note

Brown suffered a bone bruise in his knee in Week 1 and will miss at least Week 2's game against Jacksonville. When healthy, Brown is one of the most dangerous receivers in the game, but there was little reason to push him in a game the Titans are favored in by more than a touchdown. Monitor his progress but this doesn't sound like a long-term absence for now.

Jonnu Smith Note

Smith is one of the more intriguing names to be outside of the TE1 range. He is one of the most efficient tight ends in the game, and has a clear road to targets at the position now that Delanie Walker is no longer in his way. The problem is that there aren't all that many targets to go around in Tennessee, and Smith's targets have rarely come around the end zone. If that changes, then he's certainly got a shot at being fantasy-relevant. For now, however, he should be drafted as a TE1 only in 15-team leagues or larger or those that reward bonus points for tight ends.

Corey Davis Note

Those who are chasing production are likely to look at Davis' 10 catches, 137 yards, and a touchdown through two weeks as a reason to buy the fourth-year wide receiver. Unfortunately, A.J. Brown will return to full health, and Derrick Henry will have much better games in the future. While Ryan Tannehill has looked great through two weeks, this is still a run-first team. Davis just took advantage of two great matchups.
