Derrick Henry Note

He leads the league with 49 carries inside the red zone and 26 carries inside the 10-yard line. I continually tell people to beware of the Colts defense, and after holding the Packers running backs in check, they've allowed just 3.43 yards per carry on the season, which is tied with the Eagles for the second-lowest number in the league. They're one of just five teams who've allowed fewer than 100 fantasy points on the ground to running backs this year. They're extremely good against the run. The worst part about Henry's lack of passing-down usage is matchups like this, as the Colts have allowed the second-most points per target (1.82) to running backs. But are you ready for the good news? In Matt Eberflus' 42 games as the defensive coordinator for the Colts, there's been one running back who's been able to total 100-plus yards on the ground. It's Derrick Henry, and he's done it twice. In fact, here are his last three games against them (most recent first): 19/103/0, 26/149/1, and 15/82/1. We also know about Henry's late-season onslaught, right? Winter is coming, and Henry absolutely loves it. Keep him rolling as your RB1 who remains a bit touchdown dependent. Oh, and we just got word that interior lineman DeForest Buckner will be out for this week with COVID, only further enticing us.
