Summary

When DeMarco Murray was cut by the team in the early offseason, fantasy owners' expectations were that Derrick Henry would finally be in position to be the Titans' primary runner. Those dreams were dashed when the team went out and signed Dion Lewis in free agency. The offense was woefully ineffective last year and should improve with new Offensive Coordinator Matt LaFleur implementing more spread and play action concepts. This will spread out defenses and give both Lewis and Henry more favorable matchups. What will be frustrating for fantasy owners is that the coaching staff has indicated they will vary how much Lewis and Henry are used based on opponent, making their week-to-week outlook more difficult. Henry would seem to be the type of back to be used in situations in which interior and downhill running is needed to wear down a defense. Lewis' addition may have ruined aspirations of having a dominant market share of the backfield, but there is still room for Henry to have his best totals yet as the overall output of the offense improves.

Titans | Derrick Henry should lead backfield (Thu Jul 12, 01:07 PM) - 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.

Our View: With an ADP of 17th running back off the board, Fantasy GMs in early drafts seem less sure, and we don't blame them. The staff has implied they will vary his use quite a bit and unless Lewis has lost a step, Henry is likely to lose some third down touches to the free agent back. We do like what new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur brings to the table in terms of spreading the defense out to create more lanes for his backs, but we are not sure Henry will benefit as much as he might have before Lewis showed up.
