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.

Titans | Derrick Henry has monster performance

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 17:02:26 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for 156 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Wild Card playoff game Saturday, Jan. 6. He also caught two passes for 35 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Henry received most of the carries during the game and was a big part of the team's success on offense. He likely will receive a lot of work next week if DeMarco Murray remains sidelined and would be a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: There will be a heavy dose of Henry with Murray sidelined. The bruising back is now in the RB1 conversation for those in fantasy playoff contests.

Titans | Derrick Henry totals 31 yards

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 14:53:01 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed eight times for 25 yards in Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added one reception for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: Henry saw a total of just nine touches, but that might change in the regular-season finale with DeMarco Murray (knee) going down with a knee injury late in Week 16 while not being able to put weight on his leg.
