Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill's prop for rushing yards this week is 18.5 (o/u)
Ryan Tannehill will be facing his own set of challenges this week. He will be without both his top two wide receivers in A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.
Many are expecting a very heavy rushing day by Derrick Henry and company. Well, that should include the trigger man in Tannehill.
The former college-wide receiver has always been a threat to use his legs. I would have to think that in a game like this where he will be down his top targets in the passing game that the game plan will be run-heavy.
I also expect it to include some quarterback runs for Tannehill who averages 18.9 rushing yards per game since taking over as the starter for the Titans.
Through three games this season he has rushed 11 times for 100 yards and a touchdown. Six of those runs were scrambles, while the other five were designed quarterback runs.
I think Tannehill will have to use his legs to not only escape the pocket but also to create offense on Sunday.
My Projection: 27 rushing yards (OVER)
