Titans | Derrick Henry should lead backfield

Thu, 12 Jul 2018 10:07:48 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to serve as the lead running back in 2018. He will split time with RB Dion Lewis, but Henry has been working to improve his receiving and pass protection in order to stay on the field more.

Fantasy Tip: Henry may be the "lead" back, but a 50-50 split in touches between him and Lewis isn't out of the question at all. They already comprise one of the most formidable running back duos in the NFL and should both be regarded as an RB2, although Lewis does have more appeal in PPR leagues.

Titans | Derrick Henry to lead team in carries?

Thu, 05 Jul 2018 18:46:46 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry could lead the team in rushing attempts and rushing yards this year, according to Terry McCormick of, but McCormick said it "isn't out of the question" that RB Dion Lewis finishes with more total yards.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the addition of Lewis, Henry should be headed for a career year. He should have no problem delivering low-end RB2 production, and Lewis should deliver similar value, especially in PPR formats.

Titans | Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis viewed equally

Tue, 05 Jun 2018 11:50:06 -0700

Tennessee Titans RBs Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis are considered 1a and 1b in the eyes of offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur.

Fantasy Tip: Henry and Lewis are tremendous complements to each other. Henry is a bruiser and Lewis is a more agile and shifty back. The latter can hold his own as a runner despite his smaller stature and brings better value to the fantasy table. Both Henry and Lewis are in the RB2 conversation with Lewis having more PPR value.

Titans | Dion Lewis expects to be involved

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 18:38:50 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis said both he and RB Derrick Henry will be used in the running game. "Derrick's a great back and I'm happy to be a part of the backfield with him, so I think we can form a pretty good one-two punch," Lewis said.

Fantasy Tip: Henry is expected to take on more of the lead role this year, but Lewis should receive some carries of his own and see a lot of action on passing downs.

Titans | Derrick Henry expected to start

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 15:03:49 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry likely will take over as the starting running back for the Titans in 2018 after the release of RB DeMarco Murray.

Fantasy Tip: Henry led the team with 744 yards this season and received just under half of the carries. He could also be more involved in the passing game as the starter. He should be able to improve on his stats next season and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Titans | GM excited for Derrick Henry under new OC

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 22:14:30 -0800

Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, Feb. 28, how much he is "looking forward" to working with RB Derrick Henry "in the new offense," adding that "he is obviously a little more acclimated to the pro game and I think he can be a guy we can hand the ball to and throw it to."

Fantasy Tip: It seems a lot more likely than not that the Titans will be moving on from DeMarco Murray, which could set up Henry for a huge 2018 campaign. Owners should be excited over the prospects of drafting Henry, as he has the chance to be a monstrous RB1 with a full workload on a weekly basis next season. It wouldn't be surprising to see his ADP register somewhere in the first round.

Titans | Inconsistent elusiveness for Derrick Henry

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 20:56:51 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ranked third in the NFL - among players who recorded at least 175 carries - with 4.09 yards gained after defenders closed within one yard of him in 2017, according to Next Gen Stats. Henry decisively cleared 3.7 yards gained after close in five games, but he fell under that mark in all the others.

Fantasy Tip: Henry's inconsistency in making defenders miss from short range - or powering through those tackle attempts - is actually a bit troubling for a 247-pound back with impressive straight-line athleticism. The Titans figure to benefit from a chance at offensive coordinator as a whole - Matt LaFleur was hired to replace Terry Robiskie - and DeMarco Murray is a candidate for release this offseason, both of which could enable Henry to reach the ceiling he has displayed at times during his first two NFL seasons.

Titans | Derrick Henry bottled up

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 21:01:32 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 12 times for 28 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards in a 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: New England shut down Henry early, and Tennessee had to abandon the run after falling behind. There is a chance DeMarco Murray doesn't return in 2018, and if that's the case, Henry will have RB1 potential.
