Quarterback

Bryce Young: Things continued to run out poorly for Young in his rookie season on Sunday.

He completed 55.2% of his passes (16-of-29) for 123 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Young has now thrown for fewer than 200 yards in three straight games.

He averaged 4.2 yards per pass attempt, his lowest rate in a game since the season opener.

Young now has averaged fewer than 5.0 yards per pass attempt in three straight games.

If you are looking for a silver lining, the last player to average fewer than 5.0 yards per attempt in three straight games while throwing the ball 20 or more times was Trevor Lawrence during his rookie season.

Young is stuck as a QB2 for fantasy purposes right now.

If you do have to sell yourself on him in those formats this week, the Titans have allowed a 69.1% completion rate (28th), 7.8 Y/A (28th), and 14.4 passing points per game (23rd).
