Summary

Henry won the rushing title in 2019 and consequently won fantasy general managers titles with his late-season production. He will be in consideration as one of the first running backs off the board in fantasy formats in 2020, especially since he is one of the few running backs in the league who does not currently share a significant portion of his backfield load with others. Some have worried about the addition of rookie running back Darrynton Evans, but those fears are unnecessary because Evans is not built to do extensive between-the-tackles work. If all goes well, Evans will reprise Dion Lewis' role as the pass-catching third-down back, a role that the team seems unwilling to delegate to Henry. Right tackle Jack Conklin leaving is also a bit of a concern, but new Draft pick Isaiah Wilson is a mauler in the run game and is athletic enough to play well in the zone-based system that the Titans had great success with last year. It is unlikely Henry will win the rush title twice in a row, but a top five fantasy season at the position is not out of reach. After signing a four-year deal and avoiding the franchise tag, Henry's future with the Titans is secure. (July 16)

Titans | Derrick Henry a battering ram (Thu Jan 21, 10:08 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry led all running backs with 75 forced missed tackles this season, and his 1,490 rushing yards after contact were the most in the league.

Our View: That's almost 1,500 yards AFTER contact. Henry has always been a battering ram and in 2020 the Titans finally used him as such for the entire season. The result was his most productive season as a pro as Henry became one of the few RBs in the 2,000-yard club.

Titans | Tennessee out of the playoffs (Sun Jan 10, 04:14 PM) - Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill went 18-for-26 for 165 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card playoff game. RB Derrick Henry rushed for 40 yards on 18 carries and caught three passes for 11 yards. WR A.J. Brown caught six passes for 83 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets, TE Jonnu Smith caught two passes for nine yards on three targets, and WR Corey Davis was held without a catch on two targets.

Our View: The Titans couldn't get Derrick Henry going and their offense sputtered at times. On defense, they had difficulty stopping Ravens QB Lamar Jackson. They'll be headed into the offseason wondering what they need to add to get back to making a deep postseason run like they did after the 2019 season.
