Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 20 Half PPR Rankings
A.J. Brown Note

Brown has only one more target (4) than Derrick Henry (3) in their two playoff games. And Henry has more receiving yards than Brown in those games (29 to 13), too. When you don't see a Titans pass-catcher with more than three targets in either playoff game, you can't feel confident starting them in your cash games, especially knowing this is the easiest matchup Henry will have had. Not just that, but the last time the Titans played the Chiefs, Brown had what was one of his worst games of the season, catching just one pass for 17 yards. He's going to see Charvarius Ward, the Chiefs' best cornerback for most of the season, in coverage most of the time. Ward allowed just a 47.6 percent catch-rate in his coverage, though he was prone to getting beat deep at times, allowing a rather-high 15.9 yards per reception. He's also coming off what might have been his worst game all year, as he allowed five catches on nine targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in his coverage against the Texans. Look, the Titans are going to ride Henry as long as they can, which may not be very long if the Chiefs' offense picks up where they left off last week. If the Titans are forced to throw 30-plus attempts, like almost everyone does against the Chiefs, Brown is going to be a much bigger part of the offense. But again, you cannot predict game script (as the entirety of the playoffs has shown us), which means you cannot use him confidently in cash, though DraftKings did lower his salary enough to at least consider him as a value option with upside.

Corey Davis Note

Davis has one catch for three yards and a touchdown through two playoff games. Oddly enough, that's amounted to more fantasy points than A.J. Brown. It's been tough for all Titans receivers, as none (tight ends included) have seen more than three targets in each of the last two games. He wasn't available to the Titans the last time these two teams met, so there's no history to go off of, but let's be honest: there weren't many positives takeaways from Davis' regular season, even when he did play. This stat blew a lot of minds last week, so I'll share it again: the 1,956 yards the Chiefs allowed to wide receivers was fewer than the Patriots, Chargers, and 49ers. Only the Patriots allowed fewer fantasy points to the position. Volume was an issue for their opponents, but we can't pretend like volume isn't an issue for Davis, either. He's still yet to see more than six targets with Tannehill under center, which is a problem against the Chiefs, who allowed the fewest yards to wide receivers this year. Even looking for a touchdown could prove tough against the Chiefs, as Davis will see a lot of Bashaud Breeland, who's allowed just three touchdowns on 66 targets in coverage this year. Davis is nothing more than a tournament option this week, but as a starting wide receiver at just $4,000, he's not a bad one.
