Derrick Henry to be fed carries in 2019?

New Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith says Derrick Henry will be a big part of the offense in 2019.

Fantasy Impact

Smith added the Titans aren't afraid to win ugly, which could lead to running the ball more often and playing good defense. Henry was a bust for most of 2018 but erupted down the stretch. From weeks 13-17 he averaged 6.44 YPC and scored seven TDs. Still, he doesn't offer any production in the passing game, which could once again limit his fantasy upside next year.

Derrick Henry rushes for 93 yards in loss to Colts

Derrick Henry rushed16 times for 93 yards and added another 13 yards on his lone reception in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Henry exploded in the second half of the season after starting the year failing to rush for over 60 yards in the first eight games. Henry rushed for 585 yards in the final four games of the year. Henry should go into 2019 as one of the top running backs in fantasy.

Derrick Henry scores a TD in Week 16 win

Derrick Henry ran 21 times for 84 yards and scored a TD and also caught a pass for eight yards as the Titans defeated the Redskins by a 25-16 score on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Henry could not repeat his last two games when he rushed for a combined 408 yards and six touchdowns. But the third year running back had a solid day and helped fantasy owners with the touchdown score. Henry should be started in Week 17 against the Colts.

Derrick Henry carried the ball 33 times for 170 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 17-0 win over the Giants. He caught one pass for zero yards.

Fantasy Impact

After not rushing for more than 60 yards in a game in the first 13 weeks of the season, Henry has broken out in the last two games. The third-year back has rushed for 408 yards and six touchdowns in the last two contests. Henry is a must-start in Week 16 for fantasy owners.

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.
