Browns at Titans , Sun.: 1:00 p.m. ET [
- One week after being held to just 23 yards rushing combined by the Patriots, Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson have another tough test against the Titans. No back has finished in the Top 20 against Tennessee so far this year and only one rusher all year has even reached 60 yards against them.
- The Browns will be without LG Joel Bitonio this week as well and it should be noted that they have averaged over 11 yards per carry when running behind Bitonio this season.
- A receiver has produced at least 13 FanDuel points against the Titans in four out of five games this year and a receiver has hit the 70-yard mark in every game. Terrelle Pryor leads the Browns with 46 targets on the year. All other Browns receivers have been targeted 50 times combined in 2016.
- Gary Barnidge has at least five catches in three straight games and is averaging 66 yards receiving per game in those contests. No tight end has produced 66 yards against the Titans this year and only one has scored or produced 10 FanDuel points. Barnidge himself has yet to find the end zone in 2016 and has not scored in seven straight games dating back to last year. He never went more than two games without a score in 2015.
- Marcus Mariota has a very good matchup against a Browns pass defense that has allowed multiple passing touchdowns in eight straight games and 13 of the last 14. Every quarterback who has faced the Browns this year has produced at least 18 FanDuel points.
- Over the last three weeks, DeMarco Murray has rushed for 330 yards and three touchdowns. He gets a Browns defense that has allowed at least 10 Fantasy points and a running back touchdown in four of their five games this year.
- Dating back to last year, the opposing reception leader has scored in eight straight games against the Browns and it has been a tight end in each of the last two weeks (Jordan Reed and Martellus Bennett scored five times against the Browns in the last two weeks alone).
- The Browns are allowing 8.6 catches for 100.2 yards and one touchdown per game to the tight end position this year, all of which are most in the NFL. That translates to a whopping 20.5 FanDuel points per game to tight ends and in the last two weeks alone, Jordan Reed, Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski have combined to score 64.9 FanDuel points against the Browns.
- Delanie Walker is healthy and has at least five catches, 66 yards and a touchdown in two of his last three games and leads the Titans in receiving yards and touchdowns this year.
- A wide receiver has caught a touchdown in 10 of the last 12 games against the Browns.
Three Bonus Facts
- Brock Osweiler is a great value play this week at only $6,900 and takes on a Colts defense that has allowed 23-plus FanDuel points to quarterbacks over the last two weeks. Quarterbacks have multiple passing touchdowns in each of the last two against the Colts, who have already allowed three Top 5 finishes to quarterbacks in only five games.
- LeSean McCoy is the third most expensive back in Week 6, but he is absolutely worth it. McCoy faces a 49ers run defense that has allowed a 100-yard rusher in four straight games and Shady himself has rushed for 330 yards in his last three starts while producing three total touchdowns. The last three backs to face the 49ers have all topped 100 yards rushing and have all found the end zone while averaging a ridiculous 26.4 FanDuel points per game. He easily could be the top point scorer this week at the running back spot.
- Cameron Meredith has played just about every snap since Kevin White went down with his injury and last week, he led the Bears in targets (12), catches (nine), yards (130) and scored a touchdown. He is a sneaky, cheap FanDuel play at only $5400.
