Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tennessee Titans

*Rostered in 30.0% of Yahoo! leagues and 6.0% of ESPN leagues

The Tennessee Titans quarterback situation remains uncertain, but their bottom-two 28.5% quarterback pressure rate allowed is as routine as a rooster’s crow.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill missed Week 8 with an ankle sprain and an illness and rookie Malik Willis operated as the most basic game manager football fans have seen this year. Willis went six-of-10 passing for 55 yards and an interception. The high-profile rusher disappointingly managed just 12 rushing yards on five carries. Head coach Mike Vrabel opted to control the clock with running back Derrick Henry but that strategy will not work against the Kansas City Chiefs as Tennessee are +12.5-point road underdogs. Should Willis get the start, the untested rookie will be thrown into the fire.
