  • Derrick Henry Totals In 117 Yards In Loss

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 17 times for just 38 yards and caught three passes for 79 yards in the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He fumbled on a could-be 70-plus-yard screen pass for a touchdown, so his fantasy production failed to reach the ceiling fantasy managers have become used to. Henry has now averaged fewer than 3.2 yards per carry in each of his last two games, which is concerning for the 28-year-old running back with a ton of tread on the tires. He's still a must-start, but his floor isn't as safe as it's been in the past. Henry will get a more favorable matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles next week.

  • Derrick Henry Looks For Revenge Versus Bengals

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed for just 62 yards on 20 rushing attempts in the 19-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round in last year's playoffs. It was Henry's first game back from a Jones fracture in his right foot and he was completely shut down. Henry will get a chance for revenge in a regular season matchup with the Bengals, who are just a neutral matchup for fantasy running backs. As always, Henry is a must-start and has an overall RB1 ceiling. Henry leads the NFL with 1010 rushing yards and will look to make a big statement in a meaningful game for the AFC playoff race.

  • Derrick Henry Rushes And Passes For Touchdown

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 28 times for 87 yards and a touchdown, caught two passes for 45 yards, and completed two passes for four yards and a touchdown. Despite his mediocre 3.1 yards per carry in this contest, he found a creative way to deliver a huge fantasy performance to begin the week for his fantasy managers. He continues to deliver and will once again be a top option at running back against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12.

  • Derrick Henry Draws Favorable Matchup In Week 11

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is set to face the Green Bay Packers, who have given up the 12th-most fantasy points per game to running backs through 10 weeks. He's a must-start in all matchups, as he's posted 923 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in nine games, but his ceiling shouldn't be limited in this contest. Tennessee should stick to its offensive identity on a chilly Thursday night at Lambeau Field, so as long as Henry is healthy, expect another 20-touch day for the two-time rushing champion.

  • Derrick Henry Remains A High-End RB1

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry leads the NFL in rushing yards (870) through nine weeks and his nine touchdowns have made him an elite fantasy option this season. The Denver Broncos rank No. 1 in many passing defense statistics, but they're vulnerable in the running game and down a few key outside linebackers. Whether Ryan Tannehill (ankle) plays or it's Malik Willis starting for Tennessee, there are no concerns from Henry in Week 10.

  • Derrick Henry Takes It Easy Wednesday

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry wasn't spotted in the portion of practice open to the media on Wednesday. King Henry was later listed as limited with a non-injury on the official practice report. The Titans are just resting their workhorse running back ahead of a Week 10 meeting against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. The 28-year-old had 115 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries in the Sunday night loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and will continue to be an elite, must-start RB1 this weekend. Entering Week 10, Henry ranks as the RB2 in half-point PPR leagues, behind only Austin Ekeler, with 183 carries for a league-leading 870 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground. He's added 14 catches for 140 yards.

  • Derrick Henry Scores Twice In Loss

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 17 times for 115 yards and two touchdowns in the 20-17 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Henry saw limited touches in the second half or he could've had an even bigger day, but he paid off as a high-end RB1 in fantasy once again. Henry's rest-of-season outlook remains strong whether Ryan Tannehill (ankle) returns any time soon or not. Henry will face Denver next week, who presents just a neutral matchup for RBs.

  • Derrick Henry A Strong Week 9 Starter

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is a top-five fantasy asset at the position through eight weeks, so needless to say, he should be started in any matchup. The Kansas City Chiefs have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to running backs, so Henry should be able to produce his week 100-yards and a touchdown performance he's accustomed to. Even if Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is out, Henry should have a nice fantasy floor thanks to his elite workload and volume.

  • Derrick Henry, Ryan Tannehill Miss Practice Thursday

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) and quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) did not take part in Thursday's practice. Per ESPN's Turron Davenport, Henry's absence was rest-related after he was listed as limited on Wednesday. Henry's foot isn't expected to be an issue heading into Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night, so as long as he doesn't suffer a setback on Friday, he needs to be locked into starting lineups for the week. Tannehill was limited on Wednesday and had his right ankle taped on Thursday. The 34-year-old missed last week's win over the Houston Texans and should be considered questionable for the Sunday night game against the Chiefs, making Tannehill much too risky this weekend. Rookie Malik Willis could be headed for his second career start.

  • Derrick Henry On The Week 9 Injury Report

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (foot) is listed on the Week 9 injury report and was given a limited tag in practice on Wednesday. Henry went off in the Week 8 win over the Houston Texans, carrying the ball 32 times for 219 yards and two touchdowns, so we have a feeling he'll be just fine to play this Sunday night against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Titans are likely just giving him a little rest early in the week. It's worth keeping an eye on with the 28-year-old, though, as he missed most of last year with a foot injury. As long as Henry is active against KC, he's a must-start, elite RB1 in fantasy. He currently sits as the RB5 in half-point PPR leagues through eight weeks.

  • Derrick Henry Dominates Texans Again

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 32 times for 219 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Houston Texans. He also added one reception for nine yards. This marked the fourth time in a row Henry has rushed for at least 200 yards and two touchdowns against Houston. Henry has held up despite the heavy workload, so roll with him again in a Sunday Night Football matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9. Perhaps a vintage primetime run is in store for the veteran back.

  • Derrick Henry Has Overall RB1 Ceiling

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is poised for a huge day in his first meeting with the AFC South-rival Houston Texans. In his last three games against Houston, Henry has rushed for 673 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging just over 7.6 yards per carry. In 2022, Houston has allowed the most rushing yards per game (164.7) in the NFL. Needless to say, this could set up for another monster vintage Henry performance. Tennessee's offense has regressed over the last few seasons, but its rushing attack should explode in Week 8.

  • Derrick Henry Racks Up 138 Yards In Win

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 30 times for 128 yards and caught three passes for 10 yards in the win over the Indianapolis Colts. It wasn't a huge fantasy day since he was held out of the end zone, but 16.8 PPR points is far from a disastrous performance. Henry faces Houston next week, who is among the worst run defenses in the NFL. Continue to trust Henry in lineups as a high-end RB1 in Week 8.

  • Derrick Henry Remains An RB1 In Week 7

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has put together strong weeks after a slow start to the season and is back to a weekly RB1 outlook. Henry rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4 and will get a chance to do something similar in their second matchup. Henry's workload is locked in as one of the busiest running backs in the leagues, and he's even become a receiving option in an offense that lacks quality pass-catchers. Henry fantasy managers should continue to have confidence in the former rushing champion, even though he's sometimes a touchdown-or-bust player.

  • Derrick Henry Posts 132 Yards, Two Touchdowns In Win

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry handled 30 touches for 132 yards and two rushing touchdowns in the 21-17 win against the Washington Commanders. Henry's average yards per attempt was far from impressive, but the Tennessee offensive line was dominated by the Washington front seven all game. Despite this, Henry delivered another strong RB1 fantasy performance and looks to be fully back as a dominant red zone back. Tennessee heads to a week off in Week 6 with a bye, so fantasy managers will be without his services until Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Derrick Henry A High-End RB1 In Week 5

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has looked like the best version of himself in his last two games, charting 50 total touches for 290 yards and two touchdowns over that span. Even though Washington is just a neutral matchup for running backs, Henry's workload remains one of the largest in the leagues, so his ceiling is high every week. Surprisingly, Henry has been drawing targets and racking up receptions and yards through the air, so his ceiling might even be higher than ever before. Tennessee lacks talent at pass-catcher, so perhaps the trend can continue, and Henry can make his case for the overall RB1.

  • Derrick Henry Faces Third-Ranked Rushing Defense

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry finally produced a strong fantasy showing in Week 3, but his Week 4 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts is a tricky one for the former rushing champion. The Colts have allowed just over 62 rushing yards per game through three weeks, so there is plenty of bust risk for Henry. That said, his workload and touchdown upside are too strong to consider benching him, so it's worth the risk to play him. The Colts have boasted one of the strongest run defenses over the past few years, yet Henry has averaged 122.2 rushing yards over his last five contests with Indianapolis.

  • Derrick Henry Worth Starting Despite Risk

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has rushed for just 107 yards on 34 carries and one touchdown, but since he was a top-15 pick in fantasy drafts, it's too early to give up on him. He's historically started slowly in seasons except in 2021, and he's still likely getting back to game speed after missing nine games last season. The Titans' offensive line looks like one of the worst units in the league, but Henry's workload is always going to be major. Tennessee wants to establish the run and the Las Vegas Raiders have given up the third-most fantasy points to RBs through two weeks. Perhaps this will be a get-right game for the former rushing champion.

  • Derrick Henry Gets Shut Down In Loss

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 13 times for just 25 yards but did score the Titans' only touchdown in the 41-7 blowout loss. Still, he was a glaring bust in fantasy. Through two weeks, he's the most significant bust based on draft capital. However, it's nearly impossible to bench him moving forward, and no one is going to be looking to trade for him with any kind of value. Henry and the Titans' offensive line look putrid, but he's still going to handle a large workload when Tennessee is in a close game. For now, keep rolling him out as your RB1, and see what happens.

  • Derrick Henry Poised For Big Day

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has been a polarizing player in preseason drafts, but he's back to automatic starter status in 2022. After breaking his foot last season, he was disappointing in the AFC divisional game against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, preseason reports have been positive, and he'll likely handle a large workload from the start. While Ryan Tannehill builds chemistry with his new pass-catchers, the Titans will look to ride Henry to the finish line. The New York Giants allowed the eight-most fantasy points to running backs last season, so this should be a "get right" game for the 28-year-old superstar.

  • Titans Rework Derrick Henry's Contract

    The Tennessee Titans reworked All-Pro running back Derrick Henry's contract on Thursday to give him a $2 million raise this year, according to sources. Henry will now make $14 million in 2022, the most of any running back in the NFL. Next year will be the final year of his contract. The 28-year-old's fantasy stock might have dropped slightly entering this season after he played in only eight games in 2021 due to a foot injury. But in those eight games, Henry ran for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns on 219 carries, also adding 18 receptions for 154 yards. The two-time Pro Bowler led the NFL in rushing in each of the previous two seasons and should still be a top-five fantasy back if he can stay healthy in 2022.

  • Dontrell Hilliard The Insurance Back For Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Dontrell Hilliard was signed midway through the 2021 season to fill in for starter Derrick Henry. The 27-year-old was also competing with D'Onta Foreman, leading to mostly average performances, with the exception of a massive game in Week 12 when he rushed the ball 12 times for 131 yards and one touchdown. Foreman left to sign with the Panthers, prompting the Titans to draft Hassan Haskins in the fourth round. Hilliard has been battling with the rookie during the preseason and emerged as the No. 2 option for the offense. Henry missed eight games last year with a Jones fracture, the most games missed in any season of his career. This may result in a lighter workload and more opportunity for the other members in this backfield. Hilliard is unlikely to be a player you can start in your fantasy football lineups each week, but he is well worth a pick as a handcuff for Henry late in deeper leagues.
