2021 Half PPR Draft Rankings

Derrick Henry Note

The man just keeps getting better... Every year he's been in the league, we've watched his rushing yardage go up by at least 250 yards. I'm sure he peaked last year with 2,027 yards on the ground, but now going to a 17-game season, maybe I'm wrong. Henry should be in scoring position quite a bit this year knowing the Titans went out and acquired Julio Jones this offseason. There's no scenario where your offense gets worse in that equation. However, we don't know how the offense is going to look in 2021, as Arthur Smith (offensive coordinator the last two years) is gone. Still, with Jones and A.J. Brown on the perimeter, it's going to be tough for opponents to stack the box the way they have against Henry the last few years, so his efficiency may actually go up. There are certainly some variables to his projections, but Henry has proven that despite his lack of usage in the passing game, he's going to make up for it on the ground.

I think most people were shocked when the Titans selected Evans in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, though I figured it meant they were going to start to lighten the burden on Derrick Henry, as Evans profiled as a timeshare back. Instead, it was all Henry, all the time. Will that change with Arthur Smith out of town? It's possible. I'm expecting a bigger role on obvious passing downs, while carrying some solid handcuff value in a high-scoring offense.
