Inactives update: Levis is officially inactive. Ryan Tannehill will get the start against the Seahawks.

Game day update: Ian Rapoport further confirmed Levis is not expected to be able to play on Sunday.

Saturday update: Levis is unlikely to start on Sunday against the Seahawks, per Jeremy Fowler. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is expected to start.

The Tennessee Titans fell in overtime to the Houston Texans in Week 15 and to make matters worse rookie QB Will Levis suffered an ankle injury in the contest. With a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on the horizon, head coach Mike Vrabel confirmed Levis as questionable to play, per Turron Davenport.

Levis did not practice during the Titans Wednesday or Thursday session. However, he was a limited participant for Friday’s practice.

He seems to be moving quite fine, but fantasy managers are encouraged to keep an eye out near kickoff for his status.

Fantasy football analysis

The Seahawks are ranked 24th in pass defense, allowing 236.4 passing yards per game and have given up 257.3 over their last three games. Levis has developed good chemistry with Titans pass-catchers DeAndre Hopkins and Chig Okonkwo of late. If Levis can give it a go, I’d take precuation as a lot of the Titans offense involves him using his legs to make plays.

Betting analysis

The Titans are +150 underdogs and +2.5 on the spread with a point total of 41.5 points for their matchup with the Seahawks, per Draftkings Sportsbook.

Levis logging a limited practice on Friday is encouraging, but he seems to be a game time decision . If he does play, Tennessee +2.5 is a viable play. If Tannehill suits up under center, it is likely he struggles with a tough Seahawks secondary that forced Jalen Hurts into two interceptions last week.
