Fantasy Impact:

Henry and the Titans weren’t able to come to a long-term agreement before the deadline, so instead the franchise tag was used. For all intents and purposes, the tag was used by Tennessee to keep Henry from reaching free agency in hopes of eventually being able to reach an agreement on a multi-year deal. The Titans will at a minimum have King Henry for one more season, but hope to have his services for many more years to come. He’s considered a fringe top-5 RB for the upcoming year after he went bonkers in 2019 with a career-high 1,540 yards on 303 carries (5.1 avg.) and 16 TDs on the ground.
