The good news is that the Titans are 2-0 and Henry leads the league in rushing attempts. The bad news is that he hasn't scored through two weeks and has caught just three passes for 15 yards. That currently has him sitting at RB25 on the season in PPR formats, right behind Myles Gaskin. It's disappointing to see him not crush Jacksonville, a team that he dismantled last year, but that's why they play the game, right? The vitals are good for Henry and things would look a bit different if he'd scored. The Vikings were a threating defense in recent history, but not so much anymore. The biggest losses to their run defense this offseason were defensive tackle Linval Joseph and edge rusher Everson Griffin, which hurt, but they just lost linebacker Anthony Barr last week to a torn pectoral injury. Even with him on the field, the Vikings defense has allowed 280 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns over the first two weeks. Heck, even going back to last year, they allowed five different running backs to surpass 100 yards on the ground. This is no longer a matchup to be worried about. Keep him in lineups as your RB1; he'll get back on track.

Derrick Henry runs for two TDs in Week 3 win

Derrick Henry rushed 26 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns and caught two passes for 11 additional yards in the Titans' Week 3 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Henry was able to bounce back after being held under 100 yards rushing in Week 2 by the Jaguars. The 26-year-old running back gets a real tough draw against the Steelers in Week 4 but should still be started in all fantasy leagues.
