We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
Fantasy players took note last week when top beat writer Jim Wyatt, of the Tennessee Titans' official website, relayed that new offensive coordinator Arthur plans to "ride" tailback Derrick Henry in the final season under contract. We have seen this play out before. Team drafts a running back high in the draft and wants to get as much out of the investment before permitting said player to exit in free agency, then gain a compensatory pick in return. This is the same scenario that Melvin Gordon III is in. Still just 25 years of age, Henry is primed to build off his strong 2018 finish. We expect Tennessee to run a conservative, ground-oriented offense centered around Henry. Yes, it is possible the team brings the bruiser back after the season, or even franchises him, but he must play well and show durability in 2019. Given Marcus Mariota’s struggles, it is easy to see why Henry is the focal point of the offense.
