215 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 2 INTWith Knowshon Moreno out, the Broncos put the offense on Orton's shoulders. He threw 57 times for 476 yards against the Colts. The Broncos may lean on the run a little more against the Titans, but Orton has been a consistent producer thus far.
30 rush yardsMaroney took over as the starter last week with Knowshon Moreno nursing a hamstring injury. He didn't do much with the opportunity with the Broncos emphasizing the passing game instead.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 30 rush yardsBuckhalter remained the third-down back while Laurence Maroney took over as the starter with Knowshon Moreno out. Buckhalter will remain in the same role this week, and will drop further down the depth chart once Moreno is healthy.
6 rec, 75 yards, 1 TDGaffney exploded last week with 12 catches for 140 yards. He had five total catches in the previous two games, however, so it remains to be seen whether the outburst was an outlier or a sign of things to come.
5 rec, 65 yardsRoyal had just four receptions for 23 yards last week, again driving fantasy owners mad with his inconsistency. He is still worth keeping around, but other targets seem to be emerging in Denver.
3 rec, 40 yards, 1 TDThomas' second outing wasn't quite as electric as his first. He accounted for just two catches and 43 yards against the Colts. Still, keep an eye on him, especially if the Broncos continue to stake their claim as a pass-first offense.
2 rec, 20 yardsLloyd has been boom or bust so far this season. Owner beware.
2 PATs, 2 FGsHe only has four attempts on the season, but at least his percentage is perfect. The offense seems to be improving, which should give Prater a boost going forward.
3 sacks, 1 INTGoing against a run-first offense doesn't afford many turnover opportunities and the Broncos aren't good enough to keep the Titans completely off the scoreboard. Look for other options if available.
175 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 25 rush yards, 1 INTYoung returned to the starting lineup last week and was given the task to of playing it safe. He protected the ball and passed just 16 times in leading the Titans to a victory. The ho-hum performance didn't do much for fantasy owners, however.
4 rec, 50 rec yards, 120 rush yards, 1 rush TDJohnson returned in a big way last week after having his 17-game streaking of 100-yard rushing performances broken against the Steelers. Denver doesn't have a defensive front like the Pittsburgh's, so deploy Johnson as you normally would.
4 rec, 60 yards, 1 TDBritt caught his first touchdown of the year last week against the Giants but was otherwise unspectacular in a two-catch performances. The Titans offense is committed behind Chris Johnson, making the receivers an afterthought.
3 rec, 40 yardsHe's still the Titans' top option, but as with every other receiver on this team, the coaches need a reason to abandon the run game before going to the air. Still, Washington gets first look in the end zone, making him a potential WR3 on a weekly basis.
3 rec, 25 yardsScaife receives a relatively decent amount of attention in the passing game that could translate to good numbers if the Titans threw 30-40 times a game. They don't, however, relegating Scaife to season-long free agency in most fantasy circles.
2 PATs, 3 FGsBironas has just four field goals this season. It doesn't help that the run-first offense supporting him doesn't exactly light up the scoreboard.
2 sacks, 2 INT, 1 FumbleOne of the best ball-hawking secondaries from last season, the Titans will be aiming to pick off a Broncos offense that threw 57 times last week. They've done a good job of keeping teams off the scoreboard as well.
