Summary

Derrick Henry's fantasy general managers in 2018 will tell you that it was frustrating to play him early on, but that patience paid off in the fantasy playoffs. Henry scored seven touchdowns and accumulated 522 total yards in weeks 14 through 16, rewarding the fantasy players who kept faith in him. In 2019, Henry has an opportunity to truly lead his committee. Head Coach Mike Vrabel referred to Dion Lewis as a "complement" to Henry in an offseason press conference, indicating that Henry will have the larger market share in this committee situation. The offensive system will not change notably under new Offensive Coordinator Arthur Smith. Offensive line run blocking for Henry should improve dramatically with the addition of Roger Saffold, the left tackle who helped Todd Gurley rush for record totals the past two years. Early signs point to this being the year Henry will be a week-to-week startable option. UPDATE: Henry was in a walking boot after a July 26 injury (July 27)
