The Titans are for real. They’re 7.5-point road dogs to Kansas City, who just exacted a wild comeback on Houston. Derrick Henry defies logic, and while Kansas City’s defense has improved, Henry has obliterated better defenses than theirs for months. Over the past eight weeks, he’s averaged 159 rushing yards, with only two games under 149 and none under 86. We can’t, in good conscience, persuade anyone to fade the most unstoppable force in football right now.
Allen Lazard will be overlooked as a mid-to-low-range receiver option, especially after he disappeared last week. He came on strong late in the season though, so we’re keeping the faith this week. Aaron Jones will likely go under-owned against a ferocious 49ers DL that shut down Dalvin Cook last week, but Jones-Derrick Henry-Damien Williams is a mighty hard trio to to fade based on talent and expected opportunity.
