From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Henry still looks like the same back he has been all along, but the Titans are giving him better game scripts and his division isn't imposing at all. He's a strong RB2 against the Jaguars this week.

Week 3: at Jacksonville Jaguars

All RB vs JAX

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The one thing working relatively well for the Titans offense was their ground game last week, with Derrick Henry rushing for 81 yards and a touchdown on 15 attempts. He did fumble once on the goal line, but Henry's job is secure as Dion Lewis is the clear secondary back, seeing just three carries in back-to-back games now. With the offensive line blocking well, Henry managed to break off a number of chunk plays last week. All but one of his runs went to the right side as he gained just two of his 81 rushing yards from runs on the left side. With left tackle Taylor Lewan still serving a suspension, this may be a sign of what is to come for the next two games until Lewan is back. Marcus Mariota also added 32 yards on the ground, including a 15-yard scamper as his long run of the day. Mariota was subjecting himself to a number of hits throughout the game though, shedding further doubt on his ability to stay healthy. The Jaguars defense as a whole looked much improved from their Week 1 blasting by the Chiefs. Their defensive line can still stand to improve as a unit, however. They have allowed over 120 rushing yards to running backs in back to back weeks, allowing Carlos Hyde to rush for 90 yards on 20 carries in last week's contest. Calais Campbell looks the part and is doing exactly what he is paid to do, anchoring this defensive line. Abry Jones, however, has had a poor start to the season as the Jaguars will be looking forward to re-integrating Marcell Dareus to their defensive interior. Dareus made his season debut last week and looked great against the run on limited snaps. Play from the Jaguars linebackers remains a big question mark though, as Myles Jack and Quincy Williams have both continued to disappoint in run defense. While the Titans offensive line appears beatable on paper right now, Derrick Henry continues to run well and should pose a challenge for this Jaguars front seven.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs IND (15 / 81 / 1 rush, 3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Derrick Henry saw another solid workload with 15 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown. He had a relatively quiet first half outside of a busy third drive, where Henry busted off a couple of long runs of eight and 12 yards while also taking a screen pass for nine yards. He would fumble on the goal line near the end of that series though, with one of his linemen recovering it to save the Titans' scoring chances. Henry would redeem himself after halftime though, finding the end zone on the first drive from two yards out. He followed up the touchdown with a 12-yard carry on his first run of the next drive. Henry would also string together three great runs to close out the third quarter, rushing for 11, 6, and 18 yards on consecutive plays. All but one of Henry's runs went to the right side of the offensive line in this game, as it was clear the Titans are not comfortable with the left side of their line with Taylor Lewan still serving his four-game suspension.

2019 Week 1 vs CLE (19 / 84 / 1 rush, 2 / 1 / 75 / 1 rec)

Derrick Henry was not finding much room to run early in this game, but he did make it count early in the red zone as Henry saw a couple of goal-line carries--one of which he punched in from the 1-yard line for the Titans' first touchdown of the season. On the first play of their next possession, Henry made a great read bouncing a run to the right side as he sprinted to an 18-yard gain. He followed that up with another good run a few plays later as he followed his blockers for a gain of eight yards. Overall, Henry would finish with 19 carries for 84 rushing yards as he saw ample opportunities to grind out tough yards on the ground later in the game. Where Henry flashed this week, however, was through the air as he owned the longest play of this game--a 75-yard screen pass that he took to the house for a touchdown late in the third quarter. The play was set up and blocked very well, but it was Henry who showed his acceleration and speed to sprint downfield as he outran the Browns defense.
