If you take his 22.5 fantasy points per contest in that span and extrapolate it over 16 games, Tannehill would have finished with 360 total fantasy points, good enough for QB2. There are a lot of experts out there who expect Tannehill to regress, and it’s understandable given his lack of a track record of playing like an elite quarterback; however, there are plenty of reasons to believe he can avoid taking a step back in his second season in Nashville.
Tennessee will be returning 80 percent of its offensive line in 2020, with the lone exception being right tackle Jack Conklin. However, Tennessee is set to replace him with Dennis Kelly, who has spent four seasons in Nashville and played alongside the starters in 2019. Saffold believes the continuity upfront will help both he and the offensive line “start off on the right foot”, as he told the media during a Zoom call on Friday.
The Tennessee Titans’ defense was a bit underwhelming in the second half of last season, but thanks to an offensive explosion from Week 7 on, it wasn’t as noticeable as it could have been. In the first six games, the Titans allowed just 15.3 points per game. In the 10 games that followed, that number ballooned to 23.9 points per contest.
