Tennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis took a back seat to teammate Derrick Henry in the team's blowout win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Lewis rushed 10 times for just 13 yards and added five receptions for 39 yards as Henry set the Titans single-game record for rushing yards with 238. This game put an exclamation mark on Henry's improving play over the last few weeks, and it might be enough to get Henry more of a feature role in the offense down the stretch. Lewis will have to continue to do most of his damage through the air in PPR leagues, lowering him to a low-floor flex/RB3 option going into next week.
Tennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis had a tough day in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans victory over the New York Jets. In all truth, he's had a tough four weeks. In this matchup, Lewis had two receptions for negative-two yards, 36 rushing yards and zero touchdowns. Derrick Henry stepped in this game in a big way and stole Lewis's thunder fast after scoring a touchdown in the second quarter. The running game wasn't that great for the Titans and even worse, Lewis owners have battled inconsistency in the past four weeks. With Henry's usage going up in head coach Mike Vrabel's offense, you have to keep a close eye on him and the other options available to you. The Titans head to Florida to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14. They are a team that gives up about 14 fantasy points on average to running backs.
Tennessee Titans running backs Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry have been uninspiring lately, combining for just 34 carries and 108 yards over the last two contests. They have both seen an equal share of those carries, although Lewis has seen more work in the passing game. It appears that this backfield has shifted away from Lewis as the number one and back to a timeshare, leaving it a muddled mess for fantasy owners. Lewis will continue to have the higher weekly floor due to his receiving work, but Henry does possess the touchdown upside. Both backs should be treated as flex plays going forward unless a leader emerges down the stretch.
