NFL DFS Showdown – Week 10 (Thursday) – IND v TEN
We should have a good game on Thursday night in Week 10 with a divisional battle for first place in the AFC South between the Colts and Titans. Both teams have some distinct options you will want to lock into your Cash game lineups but be sure to “take a shot” on a low-owned option or two in your GPP lineups.

Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans
- Philip Rivers – With the priced-up Titans’ stars, I’m looking to pivot to Rivers in the Captain slot in my Cash lineup. Rivers has been capable of solid fantasy production in high-scoring games against bad pass defenses, which is the situation he finds himself in Thursday night against the Titans. The Titans pass defense ranks 24th DVOA and have allowed 294 passing yards (25th) and 2.4 TD pass (27th) over the last five weeks.
- Ryan Tannehill / Derrick Henry– Lock in the Titans production with the combo of Tannehill and Henry. One of them should factor into every offensive yard and touchdown for the Titans against the Colts. The Colts defense has been stingy this season, but the Titans have scored at least 20 points in seven straight games. Tannehill has at least 2 TD passes in five straight games and Henry has scored at least 1 TD in five of his last six games.
- Colts RB/TE combo – The next two slots in your Cash game lineup should be reserved for 1 RB and 1 TE from the Colts. Watch the Mo Ali-Cox injury status as that could force you to Trey Burton as the TE choice. Then look to use your preferred option (or what fits) between Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines.
I think the leverage move in GPPs this week is to stake a claim to one of the Colts WRs in the Captain’s spot. My preference is Michael Pittman who saw seven targets last week including multiple looks downfield. After the salary savings up top, then you can fit in the combo of Tannehill and A.J. Brown, plus one other Titans pass-catcher (fading Henry). Then lock in Rivers and another Colts pass-catching option to round out your GPP lineup.
Titans +1 / Over 48.5
