Week 1 PPR Rankings

Derrick Henry Note

The last nine games we've seen Henry on the field, here are the numbers he's produced: 222 carries, 1,342 rushing yards, 12 touchdowns. Those would be elite numbers over the course of a whole season. We're talking about nine games. It's going to be tough against the Broncos though, who were already a good run-stuffing defense in 2019 when they allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points to running backs. Now you add in interior lineman Jurrell Casey and get edge rusher Bradley Chubb back from injury? There was one game where the Broncos were absolutely crushed last year (Leonard Fournette rushed for 225 yards on 29 carries), but outside of that game, they allowed just 3.68 yards per carry. Henry himself was among the casualties against them last year, as he totaled a season-low 28 yards on 15 carries. Henry also lost his starting right tackle this offseason, though they did draft Isaiah Wilson in the first round to take Jack Conklin's place. If Henry wants to get into RB1 territory this week, he's going to need to be involved in the passing game more than he was last year (never saw more than three targets), so it's not looking great. You're starting him with the way he's played with Tannehill under center, but temper expectations to the high-end RB2 area this week in a tough matchup.

Hill is the clear backup in Atlanta, but that doesn't mean that he can be relied upon for weekly fantasy production. He's someone to hold onto in deep leagues in the event that Gurley struggles with injury this season again, but otherwise he can be avoided in leagues with shorter benches.
