RB - TEN
Week 13 Outlook
Derrick Henry rushed for 76 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in the Titans’ 17-10 win over the Panthers.
Henry also caught 1-of-2 targets for zero yards in the win Sunday. The veteran scored the only two touchdowns for the Titans’ offense on a one-yard and a 10-yard rush. Henry benefits from the Titans keeping games close and allowing him to wear down the opposing defense, which he will look to do in Week 13 against the Colts.
Derrick Henry gained 38 yards on 10 carries and caught 1 of 2 targets for six yards in Sunday's 34-14 loss to the Jaguars.
Henry has had a pair of rough road games the last two weeks, gaining a mere 62 yards on 21 combined carries between matchups against the Buccaneers and Jaguars. The Titans are now 3-7, starting a rookie QB, and cutting into Henry's touches with the snaps they allot for 22-year-old Tyjae Spears in the backfield. In other words, the Titans aren't contending and Henry is an "old" back fast approaching his 30th birthday in January. Most of Henry's fantasy managers will probably have to stick with him at this juncture of the season, but his best days appear well behind him.
Derrick Henry rushed for 24 yards on 11 carries in the Titans’ 20-6 loss to Tampa Bay. He caught his lone target for a loss of four yards.
Henry turned in his second worst yards per carry average of the season in Sunday’s loss. The Titans’ offense continues to struggle and will need to get Henry going in order to turn their season around. Henry and the Titans will take on the Jaguars in Week 11.
Derrick Henry rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries, adding 27 yards on three receptions in Thursday's 20-16 loss to the Steelers.
Henry continues to produce for fantasy managers, as he crossed the 600-yard rushing mark for the season. The Tennessee workhorse also scored his fourth touchdown of the season. A development to note from Thursday's game was Henry finishing behind rookie RB Tyjae Spears in offensive snaps by a total of 41 to 33. However, Henry still got 17 carries to Spears' five. Henry remains a solid RB1 going forward.
Titans RB Derrick Henry (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Monday.
Henry’s participation was estimated as the Titans held a walk-through on Monday. With a short turnaround this week, fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on Henry’s status for Thursday’s game in Pittsburgh.
