Jonnu Smith Not On The Injury Report For Week 7

Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith is not on the team's injury report for their Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Smith suffered an ankle injury in Week 6 and there was speculation that his status for Week 7 was in jeopardy. Luckily, he's been able to recover quickly. Smith caught five passes four 40 yards and two touchdowns in the last game he completed, Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills. He's a fantastic TE1 option in Week 7 as an integral part to an offense that's been clicking all year.

A.J. Brown Misses Practice Thursday With Knee Injury

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee) popped up on the injury report Thursday after missing practice due to a knee ailment. Brown has already missed two games this season due to knee issues, so his latest injury development may not be insignificant. Since returning, Brown has hauled in 12 receptions for 140 yards and three touchdowns, making him a high-end WR2 in season-long formats moving forward. With Corey Davis and Adam Humphries both back in the mix, an absence from Brown would pave the way for the aforementioned duo to see increased roles Sunday against a stout Pittsburgh secondary. Check back throughout the week for updates on Brown's status as they become available.

Ryan Tannehill To Face Tough Steelers Secondary

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is coming off a season-high 364-yard performance and heads into Week 7 with confidence, but he faces a stingy Steelers Defense that allows just 18.8 points per game thus far. Tannehill has thrown multiple touchdowns in 13 of his last 15 regular season starts and his resurgence has continued into 2020. The Titans like to limit his attempts per game, so Tannehill will likely be more of a mid-tier QB2 in this matchup of unbeaten teams.

Derrick Henry Faces Tough Steelers Team In Week 7

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is coming off three consecutive games with multiple touchdowns and just amassed 264 scrimmage yards in last week's win, so even a tough matchup against a Steelers Defense shouldn't deter fantasy owners from running Henry out as an RB1. Pittsburgh's defense is allowing just 66 rushing yards per game, so this matchup should be one to watch. Henry is an RB1 weekly; volume will remain high and Henry is starting to find his stride. The fact that he's been used a pass catcher bodes well for Henry's season long success.

Jonnu Smith Has Been Efficient In The Red Zone

Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith is averaging less than six yards per red-zone catch this year, but he's scored on all five of his red-zone catches (six targets) inside the 10-yard line. Smith has hooked up with quarterback Ryan Tannehill twice for 11 yards and two touchdowns on crossing routes in the red zone, which is tied for the most such touchdowns in the league. The 25-year-old ranks third in fantasy points at his position through six weeks, but he suffered a minor ankle injury in last week's overtime win over the Texans and is questionable for Sunday against the division-rival Steelers. If Smith plays through his injury, fantasy managers may want to temper expectations a bit against a Steelers Defense that is allowing the sixth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends.
