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. (April 19)

Latest News

Titans | Derrick Henry expected to carry heavy load (Tue Jul 16, 09:16 PM) - Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran for 625 yards and eight touchdowns on 97 carries in five December games last season. New offensive coordinator Arthur Smith intends to ride Henry in 2019, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.

Our View: The Titans figured it out (eventually) with Henry last year. They should now know to feed him the rock early and often as the centerpiece of the offense. Dion Lewis will complement Henry in the backfield this season. Henry is a low-end RB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs.
