2018’s Best Fantasy Football Player: Derrick Henry (weeks 13 through 15), Running Back
2018’s Biggest Fantasy Football Disappointment: Corey Davis, Wide Receiver
2019 Fantasy Football Draft Wishlist: Lots of Defensive Talent
It’s hard to say what exactly would be useful for the Tennessee Titans to improve the fortunes of fantasy football owners in 2019. Theoretically, they have talent. Marcus Mariota was the #2 overall pick. Corey Davis was a first-rounder, and Derrick Henry was a top-fifty pick. They should be good. Emphasis on should. There’s a lot of flotsam and jetsam with this roster and a lot of questions. Will Delanie Walker come back? If he does, does this split the tight end targets? Will the secondary guys, like Jonnu Smith, Adam Humphries, or Dion Lewis stand out?
Herein lies the rub with trying to wish an upgrade along with the bevy of fantasy football eligible players in Tennessee. Adding to this stable of talent would only confuse things, and we only need, and desire out of Nashville is some dang consistency and clarity. Marcus Mariota, and the limited play calling led to inconsistent production with the Tennessee offensive weaponry last season. Mariota still hasn’t proven that he can make this offense something you should invest in. Adding a Justice Hill, T.J. Hockenson, or a Kelvin Harmon to that situation might help in real life, but would make everything a multi-headed disastrous you-know-what fest for at least half the season.
Personally, my wish for the Tennessee Titans of 2019 is to try to build on this roster. There are players here, and jamming more guys in there at similar or worse talent levels will only obfuscate matters. Sure, it will make the Titans better, but we are selfish monsters who are trying to maximize the margins in order to make the little number go up on Sunday against our friends. Adding players to an already muddled, and middling, roster, would only confuse things for 2019. Or an offensive lineman or something, I don’t know. That will work, too.
