The AFC South is tough to predict Fantasy Football wise. Each team in the division has a Fantasy Beast with question marks!
Demarco Murray seeing 300+ touches again in a potent offense matters here. With 9 rushing touchdowns and 3 receiving touchdowns last year. Demarco Murray has the potential to go up or down in this aspect? Going up in touches/targets from his 350+ last year is less likely to happen because the Titans have numerous weapons. Fantasy Friends need to settle down and look towards Marcus Mariota as the man in Tennessee. The run game will be a Fantasy Factor while he recovers from the leg injury.
The Titans are home to Oakland, away in Jacksonville, home to Seattle, away in Houston, away in Miami, home to Indianapolis and at Cleveland before their bye week.
Tough schedule and there is competition for targets at every position. Moon Man likes Demarco Murray to still see 350 touches/targets in 2017. Murray has upside at at this projection. With the 1st half of the season producing his best Fantasy Football numbers. As for touchdowns? Eight rushing and one receiving touchdowns in 2017.
The Titans plan to build an offense around Marcus Mariota has come to fruition.
2017 Tennessee Titans Player Projections:
Derrick Henry: 155 touches/targets.
Rishard Matthews: 115 targets.
Eric Decker: 80 targets.
Corey Davis: 75 targets.
Delanie Walker: 86 targets.
Jonnu Smith: 43 targets.
Blake Bortles once again! Sometimes sticking with the process pays off! Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns one year removed from each receiving 1,000+ yards in 2015. Add Leonard Fournette to take pressure off Blake Bortles. If Jaguars are on the board at opportune times. Scoop them up. Their offensive line is good, defense is good and Leonard Fournette will open up the playaction game. This is the year in which Bortles would be most consistent even with a high interception rate. Two and three quarterback leagues need to look at Bortles seriously. Look for Allen Robinson to post double digit touchdowns again. Specifically in the redzone for Robinson. With Marquise Goodwin benefiting from the playaction pass game (big play wise).
Tom Savage at the helm. Lamar Miller is intriguing and Deandre Hopkins is rising up moon man’s Fantasy Football Rankings. Maybe not 191 targets for D Hop in 2017. Lets rock with 147 targets for Hopkins and a top 15 wide receiver at year’s end. Not worthy of drafting in the 1st two rounds. Start in round 3 and steal in rounds 4 or 5 if applicable.
268 carries 1,073 yards 5 touchdowns. 31 receptions 188 yards 1 td.
298 carries 1,311 yards 7 touchdowns. 37 receptions 276 yards 2 touchdowns.
Andrew Luck here. Thirty plus touchdown potential with 4,000+ yards! The guy will scramble for a few touchdowns too.
A Fantasy Football Sleeper is tight end Erik Swoope. With a 6’5 frame filled out at 250+ lbs. Moon Man is in love with Swoope to scoop up 70+ targets in 2017. He runs the forty yard dash in the 4.6 range and has a vertical to boot! Swoope was signed out of the “U” back in 2014 and finally saw the field this past 2016 season. With the hype around Jack Doyle. Moon Man sees opportunity in Swoope as an overlooked tight end in fantasy leagues.
As for Daily Fantasy Sports? Erik Swoope in the 1st quarter will be great value at the tight end position. While the majority of fantasy players go with big names and matchups. Swoope will be who moon man rocks with.
At the Rams, home versuses Cardinals and home versuses Browns week 3. Week 3 will be glorious for Fantasy Friends who ride with the Luck – Swoope stack! He should do well in at least two of those first 3 games! Double Digit DFS points.

May the Fantasy Force Be With You.
