  • Derrick Henry Snubbed In Ranking

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was relegated to "Tier 3" in Pro Football Focus' Dwain McFarland's list of top players at the position. McFarland indicated that while Henry was dominant on the ground in 2019, the team's unwillingness to use him as a part of the passing game makes him less effective than others. While this notion may be true to some degree, Henry was still one of the most efficient PPR backs last season after running for over 1,500 yards in addition to accumulating 16 touchdowns. With the departure of Dion Lewis, the door may be open for the 26-year-old to do some additional damage catching passes out of the backfield during the 2020 campaign. He should remain a first-round target in most fantasy formats.

  • Titans, Derrick Henry Agree To Four-Year Deal

    The Tennessee Titans and running back Derrick Henry agreed to a four-year deal worth $50 million on Wednesday, according to a source. Two years will basically be guaranteed. Henry capitalized after winning the NFL's rushing title in 2019 with 1,540 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns on 303 carries. The bruising downhill runner is a perfect fit in Tennessee's run-first offense and will be a first-round pick as an RB1 in 2020 drafts, but he might be one of the more volatile high-end running backs because of his lack of involvement in the passing game with just 18 receptions in 2019 and 57 total in his four seasons with the Titans.

  • Titans Still Open To Long-Term Extension With Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson has continued discussions with running back Derrick Henry's representation on a long-term contract extension with just one week left to reach an agreement before the July 15 deadline. If the sides can't agree, Henry will play 2020 on the $10.278 million franchise tag. Henry led the NFL with 1,540 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns in 2019. He led the team to the AFC Championship game and added 446 rushing yards in three playoff games. The former Alabama star had six 100-yard rushing games in the regular season and two more in the postseason. The bruising 25-year-old back will continue to be featured in this run-first offense, which makes him a top-five fantasy football running back that will come off the board in the first round.

  • Derrick Henry One Of The League's Best Runners

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was ranked as the No. 1 back in the league against a stacked box in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus. With 244 carries against such a defensive setup -- nearly 78 more than second-ranked Dalvin Cook-- he maintained five yards per carry during those situations, with 4.4 of them coming after contact. The 25-year-old led the league in both rushing yards and touchdowns while also finishing fifth in PPR leagues at his position (second in standard formats). Look for him to go somewhere within the early first round in fantasy drafts for the upcoming season, so fantasy managers should plan accordingly.

  • Titans, Derrick Henry Have Had Positive Contract Talks

    Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson said that he's had positive talks with running back Derrick Henry's representatives over the last two weeks. The two sides have until the deadline of July 15. If Henry can't reach a long-term deal, he'll make $10.2 million on the franchise tag. The 26-year-old bruising back has a ton of value as the Titans workhorse in a run-first offense, especially after he led the league in 2019 with 303 carries for 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns. Because of the phenomenal season he had last year, Henry will be a first-round fantasy pick as a top-10 RB1, but he could be volatile on a week-to-week basis because of his lack of involvement in the passing game and with the Titans potentially trying to ease his overall workload.
