Week 3: at Jacksonville Jaguars

All RB vs JAX

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Titans rushing offense was shuffled up again in Week 2 as we saw usage shift towards Derrick Henry in a much more run-friendly game script. Henry out-touched Dion Lewis 18-to-14 on the ground as he was the lead back on all but one full offensive series. Lewis, however, did play more snaps than Henry with 56 percent of snaps compared to Henry' 44 percent. Neither running back found much room to run last week though as the Titans entered the game missing three offensive linemen, including both starting tackles Taylor Lewan (concussion) and Jack Conklin (ACL). Backup right tackle Dennis Kelly was hospitalized with an illness the night before the game, causing the Titans to sign a free agent to help chip in as this rag-tag offensive line tried to hold it together until their star tackles return. They did a decent job in pass protection but were not as effective as usual in run blocking outside of a few key plays. While Conklin may still be a week away, Lewan could return for this week's game--so keep an eye on the injury reports. The Jaguars smothered an ineffective Patriots rushing offense last week, allowing only 3.4 rushing yards per attempt for 82 total yards on the ground. The game script was certainly favorable for a rushing defense as the Patriots fell to an early deficit, but the Jaguars defensive line simply outplayed the Patriots offensive line for most of the afternoon. This unit is healthy and loaded with elite talent on the defensive line, capable of matchup up well against most offensive lines in the league. While they have allowed a few chunk plays in the past, including the big run to Saquon Barkley in Week 1, the Jaguars have stifled opposing rushers more often than not. With the Titans rushing offense averaging a fourth-worst 3.4 yards per rush attempt behind a banged-up offensive line (which may be missing both starting tackles again), the Jaguars should make it tough to find room on the ground this week no matter how run-heavy the Titans' game plan ends up being.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs HOU (18 / 56 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Despite the inefficient stat line, this was a solid game for Derrick Henry. Henry out-carried Dion Lewis 18-to-14 here as he served as the primary early-down back on all but a couple series where Dion Lewis was featured. The game script was extremely run-heavy with Blaine Gabbert under center, so Henry feasted from a slew of carries. Henry even had the opportunity to take a few snaps in the wildcat formation on the second drive of the game, completing one shovel pass while running up the middle for some decent gains. Henry made The blocking was suspect all day long due to the absence of both starting tackles Taylor Lewan and Jack Conklin in addition to a late scratch of backup right tackle Dennis Kelly. This certainly contributed to some of the short and negative runs by Henry as he was simply running into clogged holes.

2018 Week 1 vs MIA (10 / 26 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Derrick Henry started the game as the lead back and put together a few decent runs behind good blocking, but his efficiency was lackluster overall with only two of his runs resulting in more than three-yard gains. Henry was targeted once and hauled it in for five yards. After his high usage in the first quarter, Henry was basically an afterthought to Dion Lewis, who out-touched him 21-to-3. The game script may have played a role here with the Titans being behind and Lewis the better pass-catching back.
