Fantasy Advice

Love the player. Henry is not just another big RB that wears down a defense. He's on another level. However, time and workload does take a toll even on the very best. Plus, this team has serious question marks. I feel like they will always be competitive under head coach Mike Vrabel, but the Titans are fading towards a rebuild. They lost 7 straight to end the 2022 season, which is a terrible game script for Henry.

  • Derrick Henry Not On Final Week 3 Injury Report

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (toe) put in a full practice on Friday and was removed from the final Week 3 injury report. Henry was limited on Wednesday before sitting out for rest purposes on Thursday. The 29-year-old star running back was never really in danger of missing this Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, so fantasy managers should leave him in their starting lineups everywhere. Through two games, the Browns defense has been stingy against the run, but Henry is no ordinary RB. He handled 25 carries for 80 yards and his first touchdown of the year in the Week 2 overtime win over the Los Angeles Chargers, adding three catches on four targets for an extra 15 yards through the air.

  • Derrick Henry Rested On Thursday

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (toe) missed practice on Thursday after he was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday. King Henry's absence from Thursday's practice was a combination of his toe injury and rest purposes, but fantasy managers shouldn't be worried at all that he's in danger of missing a Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. As long as the 29-year-old is back at practice on Friday, he should be a must-start in all fantasy lineups on Sunday. Through the first two games of 2023, Henry has 40 carries for 143 yards (3.6 yards per carry) and a touchdown, adding five catches on seven targets for 71 additional yards.

  • Derrick Henry In For Another Big Workload

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has rushed 40 times for 143 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 71 yards through two weeks of the 2023 NFL season. His efficiency (3.6 yards per carry) leaves a lot to be desired thus far, but he continues to be a must-start option given his hefty workload. He was limited at practice with a toe injury early in the week heading into the matchup with the Cleveland Browns, but the 29-year-old will likely be given a limited practice schedule all season long. Cleveland looks like it has a fierce defense, but even a relatively healthy Henry must always be locked into fantasy lineups.

  • Derrick Henry A Limited Practice Participant

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (toe) finds himself on the Week 3 injury report, but he was able to put in a limited practice. Henry must have picked up the toe injury in the Week 2 overtime win over the Los Angeles Chargers, but it doesn't seem like anything that should keep him from playing in Week 3 on the road against the Cleveland Browns. The 29-year-old All-Pro played 46 of 65 offensive snaps on Sunday and saw 25 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown. King Henry also added three receptions for 15 yards. Rookie backup Tajae Spears could eventually see more work next to Henry as the season progresses, but as long as Henry is healthy and active, he'll be a must-start RB1 in fantasy lineups.

  • Derrick Henry Finds End Zone In Win

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 25 times for 80 yards and a touchdown and caught three of his four targets for 15 yards in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Henry saw much more action than he did in Week 1 (17 touches), which is a good sign for his future outlook. Given his workload, he's a must-start in all matchups, and it was a positive sign to see the Titans move the ball on offense in Week 2 after a disastrous Week 1 showing. Hopefully, the former rushing champion will continue to see goal line opportunities.

  • Derrick Henry - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry opened his 2023 campaign with 15 carries for 63 yards and two receptions for 56 yards in the loss to the New Orleans Saints. Rookie running back Tyjae Spears played more snaps than him, but that should not be too much of a concern for now. In Week 2, the two-time rushing champion squares off with the Los Angeles Chargers, who allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to running backs in 2022. The Chargers also gave up the second-most rushing yards a year ago. This could be a get-right game for the Tennessee offense after a disappointing showing in Week 1, and hopefully, Henry sees more work in this AFC showdown.

  • Vrabel: Henry still 'huge part' despite lighter load

    The Titans have traditionally used running back Derrick Henry as a hammer to wear down defenses and then gone for the knockout blow in the fourth quarter, but they deviated from that formula in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 15 times for 63 yards and caught two of his three targets for 56 yards in the Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Henry posted nearly 100 yards in the first half but handled limited touches in the second half as the team played behind the chains often. Ultimately, the 29-year-old remains a must-start and will see a favorable matchup against the Los Angeles Charges in Week 2. Tyjae Spears looks to be the team's primary pass-catching back, but Henry will continue to see a healthy workload.

  • Derrick Henry Should See Massive Workload In Week 1

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry bounced back in 2022 after an injury-riddled 2021 season, rushing for 1,538 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also posted a career-high 33 receptions. In 2023, he should continue to see one of the highest running back opportunity shares in the NFL, meaning he'll remain a must-start until proven otherwise. Against the Saints in Week 1, he should see a healthy workload. Tennessee wants to improve in the passing game, but expect the team to lean on Henry early in the season as Ryan Tannehill develops chemistry with Treylon Burks and DeAndre Hopkins. New Orleans was just a middle-of-the-pack unit against fantasy running backs last season.

  • Derrick Henry Expected To See Fewer Carries

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Under new Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly this year, The Athletic's Joe Rexrode's guess is that running back Derrick Henry comes in significantly lower than the 343 carries that he's averaged in his last three full seasons. The Titans want to be more balanced on offense, and rookie Tyjae Spears is too good not to be utilized. Rexrode suggests it might be a "work smarter" year with similar production despite a lighter workload for Henry if Tennessee's balanced attack is actually effective. The 29-year-old bruising back is still in elite physical shape, but is this the year that he starts to slow down after incredibly high workloads in recent seasons? He's still an RB1 in fantasy, but he's more of a backend RB1 as he approaches 30 years of age. It may not be wise to expect another 1,500-yard season from King Henry.

  • Tyjae Spears A Dynamic Complement To Derrick Henry

    Headshot for Tyjae Spears

    The Athletic's Joe Rexrode writes that the Tennessee Titans have finally found a dynamic complement to bruiser Derrick Henry, and rookie third-rounder Tyjae Spears could also be Henry's replacement as the primary back in 2024. The Tulane product will start the 2023 regular season as the team's third-down back, but he could also deserve some carries and pop up in creative looks in tandem with Henry. Rexrode suggests that Spears is at least a worthwhile handcuff in fantasy because he'll see most of the backfield work if Henry goes down with an injury. The 22-year-old saw nine carries for 28 yards and caught two of his three targets for 13 yards in the preseason finale on Friday night against the New England Patriots.

    The AFC’s No. 1 seed in 2021, the Titans took a step back after another injury-riddled season.

Like the Cardinals, the Titans fired a GM (Jon Robinson) they had extended earlier in the year. […]
