Pick: Titans 23, Redskins 17
Tennessee Titans
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBDonovan McNabb
255 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INT
McNabb was up-and-down during last week's Monday night game that quickly turned on the Redskins. He has 11 interceptions to nine touchdowns this season and is difficult to recommend as a starter this week except in very deep leagues.
RBRyan Torain
35 rush yards
Torain injured his hamstring during warmups last week and was unable to play. He'll presumably be available this week, but it's still unclear how carries will be divided among him, Clinton Portis and Keiland Williams.
RBKeiland Williams
3 rec, 30 rec yards, 30 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Williams staked a claim for more carries last week with 16 carries for 89 yards and two touchdowns. Clinton Portis (groin) and Ryan Torain (hamstring) could both be available this week, so we'll see how touches get divvied.
WRSantana Moss
5 rec, 90 yards
Moss has been a consistent, if unspectacular fantasy option this season. Though one would like to see more scores, he is averaging close to six catches per game. He should see his usual touches against Tennessee's 20th-ranked pass defense.
WRAnthony Armstrong
4 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Armstrong led the team for a second straight week with 83 yards receiving on three catches. He is the team's best deep threat, but his limited targets places him firmly in the boom-or-bust category of fantasy receivers.
TEChris Cooley
5 rec, 40 yards
Cooley remains one the Redskins most consistent pass catchers. A lack of touchdowns keeps him in the large second tier of essentially interchangeable fantasy tight ends, however.
KGraham Gano
2 PATs, 1 FG
Gano is among the second tier of fantasy kickers with 15 field goals on 20 attempts. Washington has another tough defensive matchup this week, which could limit his opportunities.
Defense
2 sacks, 2 INT
After the pounding the Redskins took last week at the hands of Michael Vick and the Eagles, there is no reason to even consider the Redskins' defense. You should have cut ties long ago.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBVince Young
165 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INT
Young may still be dealing with some discomfort in his ankle, but he should make the start this week. He faces a reeling Redskins squad, but don't expect him to duplicate Michael Vick's superhuman effort from last week.
RBChris Johnson
3 rec, 35 rec yards, 120 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Johnson should remain in your starting lineup against a Redskins defense giving up 5.0 yards per rush, especially with Randy Moss around to draw attention and Vince Young back starting.
WRRandy Moss
2 rec, 30 yards
Moss had just one reception for 26 yards in his debut with the Titans last week. With some more time to jell with his teammates, he should put up better numbers. Still, Tennessee has never been a prolific passing team.
WRNate Washington
4 rec, 60 yards, 1 TD
Washington has made his living as a deep threat, but he may have to adjust to a new role with Randy Moss around. Still, look for things to open up some for Washington with Moss drawing coverage.
TEBo Scaife
4 rec, 25 yards
With Randy Moss now able to draw defenders with him downfield, things could open up for Scaife underneath. He had a season-high seven receptions last week in Moss' first game with the team.
KRob Bironas
2 PATs, 3 FGs
Bironas has just one missed field goal on the season, and is a perfect 8-for-8 on attempts beyond 40 yards. He should be considered a weekly starter.
Defense
4 sacks, 2 INT, 1 Fumble
The Titans are tied for fourth in the league with 20 takeaways this season, including 14 interceptions. The Redskins have given the ball away 10 times in their last four games. This could be a prime matchup for Tennessee.
