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.
