The Tennessee Titans will look to move to 3-1 on the year when they face the New York Jets in Week 4. FanDuel Sportsbook has Tennessee as a 7.5-point road favorite, suggesting that the Jets will be playing catch-up on Sunday afternoon.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 4 AFC clash.

Titans Defense Fantasy

Start Tennessee Titans D/ST: The Titans' defense will be a hot streaming option this week given their attractive matchup. Rookie Zach Wilson has struggled through the air, racking up 7 interceptions in his first three games. Wilson's shortcomings so far can be partially blamed on an abysmal offensive line. The Jets are giving up 5.0 sacks per game, which is tied for the league high. Tennessee's defensive front, which is in the top half of the league with 2.3 sacks per game, should be licking its chops. The Jets are also managing the third-fewest total yards per game, which positions the Titans' defense to hold them in check all afternoon.

Corey Davis Fantasy

Start Corey Davis, WR, New York Jets: The Jets' offensive struggles aside, Corey Davis is still an intriguing starting choice this week. He currently leads the team in targets (22), including 10 in Week 3 alone. It's clear Davis and Wilson have a connection brewing, and fantasy managers saw what that could lead to when the wideout racked up 26.7 PPR points to start the year. Davis could reach those heights again against the Titans. Tennessee's defense is allowing the third-most PPR points to WRs (50.1) this season. There's also the Revenge Game angle going in Davis' favor as he plays his former team. There'll be highs and lows with the pass-catcher in this offense, but Week 4 looks like a prime opportunity to bounce back in a big way.

Ryan Tannehill Fantasy

Sit Ryan Tannehill, QB, Tennessee Titans: Managers hoping to start Ryan Tannehill in Week 4 should give that a second thought. New York has surprisingly been stout against opposing QBs, allowing the third-fewest PPR points to the position (12.77) this season. Teddy Bridgewater, who's QB16 this year, managed just 11.8 points against this defense last Sunday. That's because the Denver Broncos got out to an early lead and turned to the run game to preserve their lead. It could be the same game script here, given that the Titans as 7.5-point favorites. This run-happy offense already revolves around Derrick Henry as it is, and the potential for a lopsided affair means Tannehill may have a quiet day passing-wise.

Michael Carter & Ty Johnson Fantasy

Sit Michael Carter and Ty Johnson, RB, New York Jets: There's still no clarity with the Jets' backfield, which makes any RB a tough play. Rookie Michael Carter is believed to have the most potential, but his 24 carries this season are only just ahead of Ty Johnson (19 carries). The latter is clearly a roadblock to any workhorse role for Carter, and the Jets being slated to trail in this matchup means the run game may be abandoned quickly anyways. Johnson and Carter also both have 8 targets on the year, which gives no indication on the favorite in the passing game. This timeshare, plus the Jets' ugly offensive line, equals an avoid-at-all-costs scenario until one back pulls away.
