Will the Tennessee RB go over/under 9.9 fantasy points in week 9.

Video Transcript

ANDY BEHRENS: Over/Under number 2. And we are going to look at the Sunday night game. We've been talking around this situation a little bit, the Titans backfield. Talking Jeremy McNichols. And we're going to set the line for half PPR fantasy points at 9.9. Does he reach double digit fantasy points?

I will get a starter and I will just tell you, I'm going to-- I'm going to be a coward here. I'm going to be a total coward here. I could have talked myself into this, but now we think that Adrian Peterson is going to be active in this thing. And there's just no way they're not going to play him. There's no way he's not going to get early down work. It could be a situation where Peterson only plays, I don't know, 15, 16 snaps. But he's going to get the ball like 10 or 12 times on those snaps. I just think he's going to take too much work in this one.

Yes, McNichols has been the primary receiving threat out of the Titans backfield, but what does that really mean? It's not like they throw out of their running backs terribly often. So I think we're probably looking at maybe four catches here and maybe we're looking at 60 scrimmage yards with Peterson being the guy who gets the ball in goal to goal situations. And I just don't quite think he gets there. I'm going to take the under on McNichols. Matt, try to be a little bit more bullish.

MATT HARMON: Well, let me just say, if you're starting Adrian Peterson or you're starting Jeremy McNichols right now, this week, your team is probably screwed. And I say that as somebody that has Adrian Peterson in a couple lineup. So I'm not just being mean to you people out there.

On Jeremy McNichols here, look, the LA Rams have outscored their last three opponents by almost doubling their output. Now, yes, I realize that those were the Texans, the Lions, and the Giants. But still, this just shows how high powered this offense is.

The Titans are better than those teams, but I still think the Rams will be controlling this action. That is going to leave plenty of passing game work in negative game script for Jeremy McNichols. We've seen this one before in their game against the Jets, where they somehow lost that one. I mean, they were playing a negative game script against the Jets going overtime. Give me a break. I think that is the type of line that we're going to get here from Jeremy McNichols. So give me the over on this one.

ANDY BEHRENS: Tank, break this tie.

TANK WILLIAMS: Yeah, man. I mean, my man with the best head in the business said it. Against the Jets, McNicholas had 12 targets, 8 catches, 74 yards. You don't think that this game script is going to be similar to the first game the Tennessee Titans played without King Henry? We can talk about this whole narrative about him not really getting that many targets, and this and that for the most part. But that was with King Henry.

This is going to be a totally different animal with McNichols involved. And let's get this twisted right now. Adrian Peterson was a rookie my fifth year in the league. And I was on the same team with him in Minnesota. You expect that dude to come back in-- I've been retired for like 12 damn years, if not even more. And you expect him to come in and try to replicate what King Henry been doing? Nah, nah, nah, it's going to be a Jeremy McNicholas day today.

ANDY BEHRENS: Oh, I can't wait till we're doing over/unders with Adrian Peterson in five years on Fantasy football. That's awesome. You got it, the over wins. I concede. I accept defeat here. Let's now-- we're going have more over/unders later in the show. Let's now send it to Liz for a few [? sleepers. ?]
