From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Henry clearly outplayed Demarco Murray and Murray sat late with a hamstring issue. The changing of the guard at running back for the Titans coming sooner than later. Henry could be a solid RB2 start if Murray is limited in practice this week.

Week 3: vs Seattle Seahawks

All RB vs SEA

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Titans running game looked a bit different last week as Derrick Henry received the majority of carries with Demarco Murray on the sideline nursing a tight hamstring. Murray struggled with his hamstring throughout training camp, and he finally was benched here because of it after a rough start in Week 1 and an inability to get anything going in the first half of this game in Jacksonville. Derrick Henry made the most of his opportunity by rushing for a career-high 92 yards and an impressive 17-yard touchdown, averaging 6.6 yards per carry. Henry showed great elusiveness here in addition to his normal bruising running style. This rushing offense looked great with Henry in the backfield, so Murray's injury is one to keep an eye on. Even if he suits up, expect a split of some sort to occur. The Seahawks defense presents a tough challenge for whichever Titans running back is carrying the ball this week. Michael Bennett is playing very strong on the interior of their defensive line, while the linebacker combination of Bobby Wagner and KJ Wright is one of the most effective combinations in the league. Last week, Wagner and Wright led the team in tackles while combining for nine solo tackles between the two of them. While they contribute extensively in pass defense, these two are very solid run-stoppers as well. Carlos Hyde found room to run on this defense last week, and it helps that the Titans are at home with a much better offensive line than the Seahawks. The question remains whether the Seahawks will return to 2016 form as they allowed just 92.9 yards per game while in 2017 they are allowing 121.5 yards per game.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs JAX (14 / 92 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Derrick Henry shined this week when after being allotted some consistent playing time with Demarco Murray sidelined (tight hamstring). Henry only touched the ball twice in the first half, followed by 12 carries coming after halftime as the Titans featured a very run-heavy game script once they secured the lead. Henry scored the Titans' first touchdown on his first carry of the second half as he easily shed away two Jaguars defenders before absolutely trampling the final one over the goal line for the 17-yard touchdown - his longest carry of the day. Henry looked very powerful on that touchdown run, and throughout this game, as he racked up a career-high 92 rushing yards while averaging 6.6 yards per carry.

2017 Week 1 vs OAK (6 / 25 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Derrick Henry managed to gain 25 yards from his six rushing attempts against the Raiders this week. While his stats were nothing to write home about, Henry was allotted half as many carries as Demarco Murray (6 for Henry, 12 for Murray). Henry was in the game for all of the Titans' third series, on which he received four of his six carries for 15 yards. Henry showed great explosiveness when he had the ball in his hands, he just needs more of an opportunity to make him a true factor in terms of fantasy production.

Titans | Derrick Henry rumbles for 92 yards, TD (Sun Sep 17, 08:31 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 14 times for a career-high 92 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

Our View: Henry is about to take a big step forward in value if the Titans commit to him after his performance. He's a boom/bust flex next week against Seattle, but much more interesting to carry on your roster than he was a week ago.
