Derrick Henry: Titans say 2020 workload 'depends on how games go'

Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith said Derrick Henry's workload this season "depends on how games go."

Fantasy Impact

"We'll see how the season evolves for him and if another running back emerges" Smith added. It sounds as if Henry's nonexistent role in the passing game won't be getting any bigger this year. Tennessee famously rode "The Big Dog" throughout the second half of last year and into the playoffs, routinely giving him 25+ carries per game. Smith's comments certainly makes it sounds as if Henry's fantasy value will be dependent on game flow but we already knew that. Rookie Darrynton Evans will likely be the team's third-down back in 2020.

Derrick Henry officially signs $10.2M franchise tender

Tennessee RB Derrick Henry has officially signed his $10.2M franchise tender today.

Derrick Henry and Tennessee front office ‘hopeful’ to reach long-term deal

Titans GM Jon Robinson recently told reporters that he wants to sign franchise RB Derrick Henry to a long-term deal.

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.

Derrick Henry: Titans to retain RB at 'big number' reports that the Titans plan to retain free-agent running back Derrick Henry at a "big number."

Fantasy Impact

This isn't surprising given the offseason moves of the team and the important role Henry played in 2019. Henry should continue to be one of the top fantasy running backs if he remains in Tennessee given his usage by the Titans. He's currently the RB5 in our expert consensus rankings.
