Titans at Lions: 5 best fantasy options

Titans at Lions: 5 best fantasy options

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (pictured) is going to throw the ball and it will help if the Titans have someone who can read him and anticipate where he is going with the ball.

Tennessee was in prime position to pull of an impressive victory over Minnesota after taking a 10-0 lead into halftime.

Football fans arrive at Ford Field for an NFL football game between the Detroit Lions and the Tennessee Titans, Sunday, Sept. 18, 2016, in Detroit. The Titans did see flashes of brilliance out of Demarco Murray and Tajae Sharpe in their week one loss and both will be on full display here against a Lions defense that was shredded by Andrew Luck last week in a game that could be closer than people think.

Marcus Mariota is Tennessee's future now.

"You want to come out and use the momentum from Week 1 to try and protect home and get another win", Lions safety Glover Quin said.

The Titans got tight end Delanie Walker involved as planned, and as Detroit feared it would after letting Indianapolis Colts tight ends Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle combine for seven receptions, 88 yards and three TDs last week.

Experts Weigh In On Newly Released Health Information From Clinton, Trump
Clinton ripped Trump for his refusal, in an interview with The Washington Post, to say Obama was born in the United States. What matters now, Clinton said, is who's registered to vote and who turns out to vote on Election Day, Nov. 8.

Ansah's return to the game is questionable. Lions have won seven of nine, dating to last season. Over the same span, no group of defensive linemen hit opposing quarterbacks more often than the Lions'. Stafford is coming off a dismantling of the Colts defense and now has a 22:2 touchdown to interception ratio since Jim Bob Cooter took over as the offensive coordinator in mid-2015.

"I said this morning, 'They have two backs that are risky in both areas and so do we, '" said Titans coach Mike Mularkey, referring to DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry. Lions TE Eric Ebron matched career high with five receptions last week and scored as he did previous four games with five catches. The Titans failed to generate any real pressure against the Vikings last week, which doesn't bode well now that they are without OLB Derrick Morgan and going up against a far superior QB.

Lacy was not the only back to struggle in Week 1, as Adrian Peterson was largely contained by the Tennessee Titans. Leave us a comment below or find us on Facebook or Twitter. Theo Riddick will undoubtedly have a role in the Lions' backfield week in and week out as well, but Abdullah has a chance to be the primary guy. Moving home to face the Titans, I expect that will change - at least on one side of the ball.

Overall the Titans have a lot to do to overcome a solid Lions squad.

You can thank Detroit's quarterback for much of this success.
