Warren Sharp’s Strength of Schedule: Warren Sharp projects the Titans to face the 3rd-hardest overall offensive schedule in 2019.

Must Draft

Derrick Henry’s late season explosion in 2018 lead to HC Mike Vrabel publicly declaring Henry as the focal point of their offense in 2019. Expect a less-efficient, yet voluminous fringe RB1/2 season out of Henry as the Titans ride him to season’s end. He’s a better value in standard than PPR, at the moment—although flashing above average pass catching ability the team has been reticent to commit to using him through the air. A final note, Derrick Henry athleticism is wholly misunderstood. This is a runner who posted a remarkably similar workout to Adrian Peterson at the NFL CombineHenry though, did it at 250lbs, a whopping 30lbs larger than Peterson.

Good Values

The promotion of former tight ends coach Arthur Smith to offensive coordinator bodes well for veteran TE Delanie Walker. Look for a mid-tier 2019 season from Walker, operating as one of QB Marcus Mariota’s primary targets.

Offseason acquisition, slot receiver Adam Humphries has looked like a target magnet thus far. He’s like an avoid in standard but would bring sneaky late-round value in any league that reward points for receptions.

Monitor

If Marcus Mariota looks at home in the newly installed system, feel free to add him off the waiver wire as a QB2 with rushing upside.

Avoid

Corey Davis, A.J. Brown, and Dion Lewis.
