Fantasy Impact: Burks could land on IR if he is expected to miss at least four games as he rehabs from turf toe. Thankfully he will not require surgery so he will be back at some point this season. Fantasy managers should expect Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine to see a bump in targets with Burks out.

The Titans D/ST was solid against the Colts, recording three sacks, recovering two fumbles, and one interception in a Week 4 24-17 win.

Fantasy Impact: The Titans D/ST was able to keep the Colts offense in check Sunday, allowing 365 total yards of offense but also allowing just 1.7 yards per carry to Jonathan Taylor and company. The Titans face a Washington Commanders team in Week 5 that was unable to do anything against a stout Cowboys D/ST unit. If in need of a streaming option in Week 5, you could do much worse that the Titans.

Randy Bullock converted 3-of-3 extra point attempts while also converting his lone field goal attempt to finish with six points in the Titans' 24-17 Week 4 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Bullock will continue to receive modest opportunities in a Titans offense that relies on a strong running game and defense to keep them in games. The veteran kicker is one of the more reliable kickers in the league. Just temper expectations for Bullock until further notice.

Ryan Tannehill completed 17 of 21 passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing five times for nine yards in the Titans' 24-17 Week 4 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill continues to make the most in a Titans offense lacking enough established playmakers to do much more if they are unable to keep games close and use stud RB Derrick Henry to control the game flow. The quarterback will now face a Commanders defense that allowed Cowboys backup QB Cooper Rush to move the ball with ease in Washington's Week 4 loss. Tannehill slots as a mid-level QB2 with upside in Week 5.

Dontrell Hilliard caught each of his four targets for 18 yards in the Titans' 24-17 Week 4 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Hilliard continues to be a valuable safety valve for QB Ryan Tannehill in passing situations, averaging 13.6 yard per reception through the first four weeks of the season. Hilliard's current fantasy value is directly tied to the health of bell-cow Derrick Henry at this point. Unless you own the latter, keep Hilliard on the waiver wire.

Chigoziem Okonkwo hauled in all three of his targets for 38 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' 24-17 Week 4 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Okonkwo made the most of his opportunities, finishing Sunday tied for third in targets and second in receptions. The tight end also outpaced fellow tight end Austin Hooper in targets, 3-1. Okonkwo will be hard to trust after being non-existent for the Titans on offense over the first three weeks of the season. Keep the tight end on waivers until further notice.

Austin Hooper caught his lone target for four yards in the Titans' 24-17 Week 4 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Hooper once again was an afterthought on offense for the Titans, as the tight end has yet to get on the same page with QB Ryan Tannehill, registering just five receptions for 48 yards to this point. Hooper is best left on waivers until further notice.

Robert Woods caught each of his four targets for 30 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' 24-17 Week 4 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Woods continues to be heavily targeted by QB Ryan Tannehill in a Titans offense devoid of legitimate skill players, piling up 13 targets in the last two games, recording nine catches and two touchdowns in that span. The wideout should continue to be QB Ryan Tannehill's most trusted option in the passing game, averaging 12.8 yards per reception over his last two contests. Woods projects to be a solid flex play in a favorable Week 5 matchup against a Commanders defense that allowed the Dallas Cowboys to move the ball with ease in Week 4.

Derrick Henry rushed 22 times for 114 yards and one touchdown while also catching three of five targets for 33 yards in the Titans' 24-17 Week 4 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Henry was able to run with confidence against the Colts Sunday, averaging 5.2 yards per carry in the contest. The running back has reached the end zone in all three games to start the season for the Titans and seems to be breaking out of an early season slump. Henry gets another favorable matchup in Week 5 against a Washington Commanders defense that has struggled to stop anyone through four weeks, putting him solidly in RB1 status once again.

Kyle Philips is officially active for Tennessee’s Week 4 matchup against the Colts in Indianapolis according to SI.com’s John Glennon. (Source: John Glennon on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Prior to injuring his shoulder and missing Week 3, Philips had caught 7-of-10 targets for 71 yards in the first two games. Philips was even targeted nine times in Week 1 and could be a sneaky low-cost flier in DFS formats now that he is back.

Geoff Swaim hauled in all three of his targets for 19 receiving yards and one touchdown in the Titans' Week 3 24-22 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Swaim once again benefited from a pass from QB Ryan Tannehill in the red zone, picking up his second touchdown in the first three weeks of the season. The low volume of targets is concerning, relegating the veteran to more of a desperation play currently. Look elsewhere if in need of a tight end replacement.

Category: Game Recaps


Nick Westbrook-Ikhine hauled all three of his targets for 40 yards receiving in the Titans' Week 3 24-22 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Westbrook-Ikhine made the most of his limited opportunities on offense Sunday, finishing third on the team in targets in a game that the Titans had controlled for most of the afternoon. It's hard to trust the pass-catcher on a weekly basis at this point, as Robert Woods appears to be the clear WR1 and a group of skill players all fighting for whatever targets are left in an offense built around RB Derrick Henry. Westbrook-Ikhine is best left on the waiver wire until further notice.

Josh Gordon elevated for Sunday

Fantasy Impact: Gordon was elevated ahead of last week's game against the Bills as well, and the team clearly feels like they need more depth at the WR position on gameday. The veteran wideout hasn't been fantasy relevant in a long time, and he probably isn't worth a roster spot in the vast majority of leagues.

Taylor Lewan (knee) is out for the remainder of the 2022 season. (Source: Bussin' With The Boys on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Lewan suffered the knee injury in the Titans' Week 2 loss to Buffalo. Dennis Daley will likely get the starting reps at left tackle moving forward. Losing Lewan is definitely a major blow to the Titans' offense which focuses on running the ball with Derrick Henry. Fantasy managers should expect a slight dip in offensive production from the Titans.

The Tennessee Titans have signed cornerback Terrance Mitchell from the New England Patriots practice squad. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mitchell has started 29 games over the past two seasons for the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans, so he brings so much-needed experience to an injury-depleted position group. This is a sign that Kristian Fulton may not be ready for Week 3 but is also a needed depth signing after the Titans hemorrhaged passing yards to the Bills on Monday.

Malik Willis struggled in relief for the Titans Monday night, completing one of four passes for six yards while also rushing four times for 16 yards and losing a fumble in the Titans' 41-7 loss to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Willis entered the game Monday night with the outcome already decided and was unable to do much against a Buffalo defense that stifled the Titans all game long. Willis is only worth rostering in dynasty formats currently, as Ryan Tannehill will be QB1 in Tennessee until further notice.

Hassan Haskins lead the Titans in rushing Monday night, carrying the ball nine times for 37 rushing yards in the Titans' 41-7 loss to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Haskins made the most of the limited space he was able to find on the ground, averaging 4.1 yards per carry. The negative game script eliminated the Tennessee ground game early, as Buffalo turned the game into a blowout early. Haskins will be worth monitoring going forward, as he looks to make an impact in a crowded Tennessee backfield going forward.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Tennessee Titans edge rusher Harold Landry tore his ACL on Wednesday and will be out for the season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Landry made the Pro Bowl last year with a 12-sack season and was paid handsomely for it in the offseason. The Titans aimed to keep the pair of him and edge rusher Bud Dupree, but this will force young defensive players like Rashad Weaver to step up. The Titans DST is currently going on average as the DST20, but there isn't a lot of upside with the unit right now.

Julius Chestnut has survived cuts and made the Titans’ 53-man roster out of training camp according to the MusicCityMiracles.com’s Justin M. (Source: Justin M, MusicCityMiracles.com)

Fantasy Impact: Chestnut rushed for 106 yards on 26 carries (4.08 ypc) and one touchdown while adding three receptions for an additional 22 yards across all three of Tennessee’s preseason games. The undrafted rookie out of Sacred Heart impressed the Titans’ staff enough during training camp to make the initial 53-man roster. Chestnut will likely be used mainly on special teams as he remains behind Dontrell Hilliard and Hassan Haskins for even the backup role to Derrick Henry to begin the season. Chestnut would be a decent handcuff for Henry’s fantasy managers who couldn’t snag Hilliard.

The Tennessee Titans released WR Dez Fitzpatrick Tuesday. (Source: Justin M on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fitzpatrick was originally drafted by the Titans in the fourth round in the 2021 draft. He was waived on cut day last season and suffered the same fate today. He was resigned to the practice squad, so it would not be a surprise if that happened this year as well.
