Tennessee Titans
vs
Kansas City Chiefs
LP Field | Sunday, Oct. 06 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

Kansas City Chiefs

    1. Alex Smith
    2. Alex
      Smith
      QB
    3. PASS YDS254
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Smith had his best game as a Chief last week, throwing for 288 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Tennessee will present a real challenge.

    1. Jamaal Charles
    2. Jamaal
      Charles
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS82
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS58
    6. REC TD1

    Charles kept on rolling last week, totaling 127 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown. He's every bit as good as advertised.

    1. Dwayne Bowe
    2. Dwayne
      Bowe
      WR
    3. REC YDS63
    4. REC TD0

    Bowe salvaged last week by scoring a garbage-time touchdown. He has been an afterthought in KC this year.

    1. Donnie Avery
    2. Donnie
      Avery
      WR
    3. REC YDS57
    4. REC TD0

    Avery only caught two passes last week but had 10 targets. He looks like a major part of this offense.

    1. Sean McGrath
    2. Sean
      McGrath
      TE
    3. REC YDS42
    4. REC TD0

    McGrath caught all five of his targets for 64 yards and a TD last week, and could carve himself out a nice role in this offense. Alex Smith needs an option in the middle of the field.

    1. Ryan Succop
    2. Ryan
      Succop
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG3

    The Chiefs look like the perfect team for a fantasy kicker. They're very good, giving Succop plenty of opportunity, but not the type of offensive juggernaut that is going to score touchdowns left and right.

    1. Kansas City Chiefs
    2. PTS ALLOWED6
    3. SACKS5
    4. INT3
    5. TD0

    With Ryan Fitzpatrick taking over for the injured Jake Locker, the Chiefs should feast this week.

Tennessee Titans

    1. Ryan Fitzpatrick
    2. Ryan
      Fitzpatrick
      QB
    3. PASS YDS218
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT3
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Fitzpatrick starts in place of the injured Jake Locker, who is expected to be out about a month. Fitzpatrick is not a fantasy option.

    1. Chris Johnson
    2. Chris
      Johnson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS53
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS32
    6. REC TD0

    Johnson had a terrible day against the Jets, running for just 21 yards on 15 carries. This week's matchup isn't a whole lot easier.

    1. Nate Washington
    2. Nate
      Washington
      WR
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD0

    Washington was just starting to emerge as a fantasy option, but it's hard to trust him with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center.

    1. Kenny Britt
    2. Kenny
      Britt
      WR
    3. REC YDS43
    4. REC TD0

    Britt didn't get a target last week and the Titans are reportedly willing to trade him. That's not the kind of guy you want anywhere near your roster.

    1. Kendall Wright
    2. Kendall
      Wright
      WR
    3. REC YDS31
    4. REC TD0

    Wright caught five of his nine targets for 56 yards last week. Don't expect much from him against the Chiefs.

    1. Delanie Walker
    2. Delanie
      Walker
      TE
    3. REC YDS21
    4. REC TD0

    Walker had just 14 yards last week, though he did catch a one-yard TD pass. You won't want to start him this week.

    1. Rob Bironas
    2. Rob
      Bironas
      K
    3. PAT0
    4. FG2

    Bironas had just one field goal attempt last week, a chippy from 26 yards out. I don't like this matchup for him either.

    1. Tennessee Titans
    2. PTS ALLOWED23
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The ballhawking Titans had another big game last week, but the Chiefs do a good job of holding onto the rock. I don't love this matchup for Tennessee.
