  • Derrick Henry Set Up For Big Role In 2018

    With Tennessee Titans veteran running back DeMarco Murray a candidate to be released this offseason, Derrick Henry figures to be in line for a heavy workload in 2018. Henry led the team with 744 yards rushing and five touchdowns last season, and he also had 11 receptions for 136 yards and a TD. General manager Jon Robinson is encouraged with what Henry can do with more work. "He is a bigger back as we all know, and has good speed in the open field. He is a guy who can get downhill, and he has the ability to pick and slide and get up in a crease. We are looking forward to him getting back, and working with him in the new offense. … He is obviously a little more acclimated to the pro game. I think he can be a guy we can hand the ball to, and throw it to," Robinson said. All signs point to Henry being the bell-cow back in 2018 in what should be an improved all-around offense. Target Henry as an RB1.

  • Derrick Henry The Present And Future In Tennessee

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is clearly the present and the future for the team with DeMarco Murray likely on his way out. The Titans have high expectations for Henry, and former running back Eddie George thinks Henry can be a "1,500-1,800-yard type of running back." Since entering the league in 2016, the Titans are 12-0 when Henry has at least 11 carries, but they are 7-13 when he has 10 or fewer carries. Henry also leads the NFL with 6.09 yards per carry in the fourth quarter. The second-year back had 23 carries for 156 yards and a touchdown in the Wild-Card win over the Chiefs, and the yards were second most in franchise history in the playoffs, trailing only George. Henry must improve in the passing game, though especially with blitz pickups and understanding assignments. With Murray likely playing his last snap with the Titans unless they advance in the playoffs, the backfield is expected to be Henry's next year. Henry has a good matchup against New England this weekend, as they've allowed 4.7 yards per carry, and the Titans will surely lean on the ground game as they try to control the clock and keep quarterback Tom Brady off the field.

  • Derrick Henry Looking To Continue Strong Performance

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is primed to get his third straight start this week against the New England Patriots. Henry is looking to keep it going following performances with 117 and 191 yards in back-to-back weeks. Henry has definitely passed the eye test as the new starting running back of the Titans, but he will need to show consistency as both a blocker and a receiver as well. Henry seems like a lock for over 20 touches following games with 29 and 25 touches, respectively. Henry will once again be a strong option in DFS formats as he continues to display his big-play ability.
