Justin-hunter
Into the teeth

The Tennessee Titans are facing the Bengals this Sunday and are going to need the services of Justin Hunter. The Cincinnati defense dispatched both the Falcons and Ravens in back-to-back weeks, and the Titans are going to need Hunter to shake that trend.

"They are going into a physical game,' Whisenhunt said, per The Tennessean. "This defensive secondary plays physical with the receivers, and they have to understand they have to be disciplined in their routes, they have to battle for the ball when it comes their way. ... We didn't play the way we wanted to last week, so this is a chance to get on the field again and do a little better."

 

Pyro's take: Hunter has not performed that well this year, having only five receptions for 89 yards on 14 targets. The goose-egg in the touchdown column doesn't help matters either.

I would bench him this week against that tough Defense, but Hunter is too talented to keep having bad weeks.

Marcel-reece
Getting Involved

The Oakland Raiders are going to need to change things up, especially at the running back position, and what better way to use the multi-talented running back Marcel Reece. Raiders earning just 63 yards on the ground per game, as well as an average of 3.9 yards per carry (21st in the NFL). Reece has contributed one carry to that total.

"We have to be a little bit aware early in the game of getting him involved early," offensive coordinator Greg Olson said, per The Associated Press. "We only had 20 snaps again in the first half. There were things designed to him. ... We had some things there it just didn't end up going there. We'll continue to find ways to utilize Marcel."

Reece went on to say about his situation, "I'm about winning," he said. "That's all it's about for me. If we're winning and I don't touch the ball, I think that sits well with me. We haven't won yet so I'm just trying to do whatever I can to help this team win and make plays on the field."

 

Pyro's take: There is no reason not to involve Reece especially in the passing game. Marcel is a two-time pro-bowler (2012, 2013), and he caught 52 passes in 2012. Instead, the Raiders are sticking to the guns that are malfunctioned, in McFadden and Jones-Drew.

Keep a scout eye on Reece, as could be a solid PPR player waiting in the wings.

Aj-green
Gonna Start?

AJ Green has stated that his toe feels better and he is wanting to start Sunday's game. Green strained a ligament in his foot last weekend, forcing him out most of the contest. He missed practice Wednesday and caught a few passes Thursday.

 

Pyro's take: Green will test his toe, and if he feels fine, its all systems go. This is a big relief for Dalton as he already has Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones out.

The Bengals are going to rely heavy on the run against the Titans, as Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill will continuously get carries against this poor run defense that ranks 24th, but 1st against the pass.

Jordan-reed
Not active

Reed will miss his second consecutive start due to hamstring pull. “I was hoping for a miracle [but] Jordan Reed is out,” Gruden said of the second-year tight end, who was hurt in the first quarter Week 1.

Since his rookie season last year, Reed has missed nine games.

 

Pyro's take: Jordan Reed has become unreliable even when he does start. If you own Niles Paul it is a good time to put him in the line-up. He should continue with his hot streak against the Eagles. Paul has caught 12 passes for 185 yards and a touchdown in two games.

Desean-jackson-redskins
Questionable

DeSean Jackson is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. A sprained left shoulder had forced Jackson out of the first two practices of the week. On Friday, Jackson wore a helmet and joined his fellow wide receivers during the entire position drills segment.

Head coach Jay Gruden went on to say about Jackson's status “He did good today. We’ll see, though,” Coach Jay Gruden said Friday afternoon. “He was very limited, as you well know, as you could see out there. But I think it was a step in the positive direction.”

 

Pyro's take: DeSean Jackson wants to face his former teams so he can do all the spotlight stuff he has done since his rookie season, and what better than do it to your former team.

If he plays. and Im almost positive he will, look for a nice game as that Eagles defense is on the poor side, and Jackson can get deep on them.

Niners-missing-character-te
To Start?

Derek Carrier is a probably starter at tight end for the 49ers this week, as both Vernon Davis and Vance McDonald are possibly out. Also, the 49ers brought in TE Asante Cleveland from the practice squad.

 

Pyro's take: Keep an eye on Vernon Davis for the game on Sunday. With the log jam of Sunday game's early, I would go with plan B if nothing is mentioned before the first set of games are set to kick-off.
