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)
