Derrick Henry has a career-best night on Thursday

Derrick Henry rushed 17 times for 238 yards and four touchdowns in the Titans' 30-9 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Henry has been struggling all season averaging just 3.7 yards per carry and not topping 60 yards in a game. But he exploded on Thursday and unfortunately was probably on most fantasy owners benches. It remains to be seen if Henry can duplicate this performance against the Giants in Week 15 but the track record would say Henry will come back down to earth.

Derrick Henry scores a TD in Week 13 win

Derrick Henry rushed 10 times for 40 yards and scored a touchdown and also caught two passes for five yards as the Titans beat the Jets on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Henry helped save the day for fantasy owners with the touchdown. But overall the running back has been a big disappointment. Fantasy owners should not be starting Henry in Week 14 as the Titans face the Jaguars who are strong against the run.

Derrick Henry leads Titans backfield in carries on Monday night

Derrick Henry gained 30 yards on eight carries and added two receptions for 19 yards on Monday night against the Texans. He also lost a fumble late.

Fantasy Impact

Dion Lewis didn't fare any better than Henry and saw only seven carries to Henry's eight, though the late fumble certainly doesn't help the latter's outlook going forward. Henry has run well overall lately, but remains in a straight platoon at running back and is largely touchdown-dependent. His Week 13 value should be decent, however, as the Titans are likely to be playing from ahead against the Jets, and could lean heavily on their run game.

Derrick Henry rushes for 46 yards in loss to the Colts

Derrick Henry rushed nine times for 46 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Henry got some work and gained most of his yard in garbage time when after the Colts built up their lead. The third-year running back has been a disappointment and should no longer be owned in standard fantasy leagues.

Derrick Henry scores two TDs in win on Sunday

Derrick Henry rushed 11 times for 58 yards and scored two touchdowns as the Titans defeated the Patriots by a 34-10 score in Week 10 action.

Fantasy Impact

Henry struggled to begin the game and the team turned to David Fluellen as the second back behind Dion Lewis but Fluellen hurt his knee and Henry got another chance. He had some nice runs in the second half of the game and scored the two touchdowns but is still not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.
