  • Derrick Henry Faces Tough Test In Week 12

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry won last week's game in overtime with his ninth touchdown in the last eight contests, but the Colts are one of two teams that have been able to keep Tennessee's star running back out of the end zone during this stretch and they have allowed only five rushing scores to running backs heading into Week 12. The 133-yard performance in Week 11 put Henry back in the NFL rushing lead with 1,079 rushing yards in 2020. The Colts are very stingy on defense, though. Henry should play as a mid-range RB1 in this matchup.

  • Derrick Henry Has Another Massive Game In Win

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed the ball 28 times for 133 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Ravens. He added a reception for -1 yards. Henry relied on volume for the majority of his production, which has become the norm for the star running back. With the performance, Henry has surpassed 100 rushing yards for the sixth time this season and third time in his last four contests. With workload always on his side, Henry will remain a top-end option even in another tough matchup in Week 12 against the Colts.

  • Derrick Henry Faces Injury Riddled Ravens Defensive Line

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry topped the 100-yard mark on the ground for the fifth time last week, and while the Ravens are holding opponents to 109.7 rushing yards per game, Tennessee's workhorse running back should benefit from injuries to Baltimore's defensive line in week 11. Since the beginning of the 2019 campaign, he leads the NFL with 11 total 100-yard rushing games in the regular season. Henry also reclaimed the 2020 NFL rushing lead. His quarterback Ryan Tannehill has struggled as of late, though, and it appears as though the offense will flow directly through Henry, as has become commonplace in Tennessee. Henry is an elite-level RB1 in all league formats.

  • Derrick Henry Tops 100 Yards In Loss

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 19 times for 103 yards and brought in one of two targets for six yards in the Titans' 34-17 loss to the Colts on Thursday night. Henry's numbers were about the only bright spot for the Titans on a forgettable night overall, with the star running back posting his fifth 100-yard effort of the campaign. The Pro Bowl running back has now averaged over 5.0 yards per rush against the Colts' normally stingy defense that last three times he's faced Indianapolis dating back to last season, and he'll look for similar success against a Ravens team he trampled for 195 yards in January's AFC Divisional Round Game when the Titans take on Baltimore in a Week 11 showdown on Sunday, Nov. 22.

  • Derrick Henry Looking To Get Back On Track

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry had a five-game touchdown streak snapped last week, but he still has eight rushing scores in the past six games and is set to resume his workhorse role for the Titans in Week 10 against a Colts Defense that's holding opponents to 83.6 rushing yards per game. The matchup itself looks difficult on paper but Henry should be the focal point in the offense on Thursday. Look for an insane volume again -- Henry should play as an RB1 Thursday evening.

  • Derrick Henry Shut Down By Bears Defense

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed the ball 21 times for 68 yards in Week 9 against the Bears. Henry saw his normal volume of carries but was shut down by the excellent Bears' run defense. He did rip off a 26-yard run that ultimately led to a two-yard touchdown for Jonnu Smith. Aside from the carry, Henry managed to gain only 46 yards on 20 carries and was also shut out in the passing game for the third time this season. Henry will look for a bounce-back performance in Week 10 against the Colts in another tough matchup.

  • Derrick Henry Figures To Have Heavy Workload Again Sunday

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has rumbled for eight touchdowns in his last five games. The workhorse back should again see a heavy workload in what figures to be a low scoring affair Sunday against the Bears. Chicago is allowing only 20.8 points per game this season. Based on volume alone, Henry will remain a top-five option. Expect 25-30 touches per usual -- Henry is locked in as an RB1 in all league formats.

  • Derrick Henry Surpasses 100 Yards Against Bengals

    Tennessee Titans star running back Derrick Henry carried the ball 18 times for 112 yards and a touchdown while failing to haul in his only target in Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Bengals. Henry dominated the Cincinnati front for 6.2 yards per carrying while recording a long gain of 21 yards. He scored a three-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter, giving him eight touchdowns over his last five games after failing to score in his first two. Henry is also averaging 115 yards per game during that span. With that said he should be a strong fantasy option again next Sunday against the Bears. He's an RB1 until further notice.

  • Derrick Henry Hits 100-Yard Mark Against Bengals

    Even in a game where his team trailed for most of the day, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry still managed to get his chance to shine. Henry had 18 carries, finishing with 112 yards and a touchdown. Cincinnati struggled to contain the Titans run game, with Jeremy McNichols also adding 49 yards on four carries and D'Onta Foreman 37 yards on five carries. Those two shouldn't impact the game as much most weeks as they did in this one, so don't think their nine combined carries signal anything bad for Henry, who remains a clear RB1 play.

  • Derrick Henry Poised For Another Big Game

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry draws a favorable matchup against the Bengals in Week 8. Henry has seven rushing touchdowns in his last four games and he should find plenty of room Sunday against a Bengals Defense that's allowing 133.7 rushing yards per game -- fifth-most in the league. He's a sure-fire RB1 and should excel in this matchup.

  • Derrick Henry Finds End Zone For Fourth Consecutive Game

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry carried the ball 20 times for 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Steelers. He also added two receptions for -3 yards. Henry was bottled up for large portions of the game by the stingy Steelers' run defense. He was able to find the end zone for the fourth consecutive game and now has seven on the season. Henry will draw a more manageable matchup against the Bengals in Week 8 with the chance to run roughshod over the mediocre Bengals front. Henry is a must-start in all league formats.

  • Derrick Henry Faces Tough Steelers Team In Week 7

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is coming off three consecutive games with multiple touchdowns and just amassed 264 scrimmage yards in last week's win, so even a tough matchup against a Steelers Defense shouldn't deter fantasy owners from running Henry out as an RB1. Pittsburgh's defense is allowing just 66 rushing yards per game, so this matchup should be one to watch. Henry is an RB1 weekly; volume will remain high and Henry is starting to find his stride. The fact that he's been used a pass catcher bodes well for Henry's season long success.

  • Derrick Henry Continues To Run Through The Competition

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has four red-zone touchdowns this year on carries inside the tackles on handoffs from quarterback Ryan Tannehill while under center through five games. His one rushing touchdown that didn't come with Tannehill under center came last week when Henry took a direct snap in the overtime win over the Texans. Henry has 97 rushing yards in the red zone, five touchdowns and a 57.6 percent success rate. The bruising back ran 22 times for 212 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6, single-handedly helping his fantasy managers to victory. The unstoppable force will meet the immovable force of the Steelers Defense in Week 7, as Pittsburgh has allowed the fewest fantasy points to running backs this year. Still, Henry remains an elite high-end RB1 that can't be benched.

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 22 times for 212 yards and two touchdowns while catching two of five targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 42-36 overtime win over Houston. The superstar running back has scored multiple rushing touchdowns in three consecutive games, and Henry's averaging 117.6 yards per game on the ground heading into a Week 7 showdown with the Steelers. Henry will play as a high-end RB1 even with the tough matchup ahead.

Efficiency has not been there thus far for Henry, but he's averaging an enormous 25.3 carries per game heading into a week six matchup against Houston's bottom-three rush defense. Based on volume alone, he's a locked in RB1 and a top five back heading into a the matchup against the Texans.

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry will have fresh legs after a week off, but the workhorse back will face a tough matchup with a tough Buffalo front line that just held Josh Jacobs to under 50 yards on the ground last week. Henry carried the ball 26 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns in the team's week three win over the Vikings. He also added two receptions for 11 yards. The volume continues to be there and he's solid RB1 in all league formats heading into week four.

Henry topped 100 yards for the second time in his first three games. He also has five receptions early on this season and has recorded multiple receptions on two occasions. Though that doesn't put him among the elite pass-catching running backs in the league, he recorded multiple receptions in only four games during the entire 2019 campaign. The volume continues to be there and he's a sure fire RB1 in all league formats heading into week four.

  • Derrick Henry Looking To Find End Zone Sunday

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry will be looking for the end zone for the first time this season Sunday against the winless Vikings. He's rushed for exactly 200 yards so far this year, but that has come on 56 carries. "I think we all just need to focus on improving, and getting better each week," Henry said. "And that's what we want to do as a whole, and that's what we'll continue to work on. Eventually, things will happen. So we're just focusing on improving, and getting better as a whole and it will eventually happen for us." Henry is averaging 3.6 yards per carry, with a long run of 14 yards. He's still a solid RB1 in all league formats based on volume alone.

  • Derrick Henry Held In Check Against Jaguars

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry ran for 84 yards on 25 rush attempts during Sunday's 33-30 win against the Jaguars. He was also targeted twice in the passing game but recorded zero receptions. Combining Sunday's final statistics with Henry's Week 1 performance (3.7 YPC), the star running back is off to an inefficient start to 2020, though he is still the beneficiary of a massive volume share of carries. The 26-year-old has already garnered 59 offensive touches through Tennessee's first two outings, as the Titans now prepare for a Week 3 matchup against the 0-2 Vikings.

  • Derrick Henry Has A Good Matchup Against Jaguars Defense

    Tennessee Titans star running back Derrick Henry will face a Jaguars Defense against which he accumulated 203 rushing yards and three rushing scores in two matchups last season. That Jaguars have allowed an average of 31.4 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs over the past eight games. This forecast seems to bode quite well for Henry who should once again see a large volume of carries. He's undoubtedly a high-end RB1 in all formats heading into week two.

  • Derrick Henry Breaks Century Mark In Yards

    Tennessee Titans star running back Derrick Henry ran for 116 yards on 31 carries while hauling in all three of his targets for 15 yards during Monday's 16-14 win against the Broncos. The 2019 NFL rushing champion did not have his most efficient effort on the ground Monday night, grinding his way to 3.7 yards per carry on a massive workload. His pass-catching upside was higher than usual in the opener, as Henry's three receptions tied his season high from 18 regular-season and playoff games during 2019. Coming up in Week 2, Henry will face a Jaguars Defense against which he accumulated 203 rushing yards and three rushing scores in two matchups last season. He should be viewed as an easy RB1 in all league formats going into week 2.

  • Derrick Henry A Lock RB1 Heading Into Season Opener

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry will face a Denver Broncos Defense that ranked 12th in rushing yards allowed per game over the past four contests. In that same span, Henry has averaged 164.2 rushing yards per game (best in NFL among RBs). There has been some preseason talk about Henry getting more involved as a receiver in 2020 which would significantly improve his fantasy appeal. The departure of Dion Lewis could mean that Henry remains on the field for all three downs more than in past seasons. He's already one of the top backs in the NFL, and is a lock RB1 heading into his prime-time conference meeting in all formats.

  • Derrick Henry Working On Pass-Catching Abilities

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry focused very heavily on improving his pass-catching skills during Sunday's practice, according to a report from NFL.com. The large back has rushed for over 1,000 yards the past two seasons, including notching 1,540 rush yards last season. Nevertheless, he doesn't have any more than 206 receiving yards in any season during his four-year career. Henry is already considered to be a top-five fantasy back for 2020, and him becoming more of a dual-threat player could add tremendous fantasy value to his name.
