Derrick Henry Week 5 Outlook - Titans at Commanders

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 6th 2022, 1:05pm EDT

Last week Henry showed yet again no elite run defense can contain him after he dropped 114 rushing yards against the Colts. He gets another chance to prove it this week. Washington has the lowest rushing success rate allowed in the NFL. They are also fourth in rush EPA and 11th in explosive run rate. It's a brutal assignment for Henry. Henry has averaged 21 touches and 99.3 total yards per game with a new found wrinkle to his game. Over the last two games he's averaged 5.5 targets (25% target share), four receptions, and 45.5 receiving yards. Since Week 3 his route run rate has been 44.4% which is a 10% increase from the first two games and a 4% increase from last season. If this pass game usage keeps up, Henry is already a matchup proof weekly RB1 with his volume and touchdown equity, but this would raise his weekly floor and ceiling.
