After sharing a backfield with DeMarco Murray the last two years, Henry seemed to have the backfield all to himself once they released Murray this offseason. Instead, they upgraded Murray when they snagged Dion Lewis, who is one of the best pass-blockers in the game and one they paid $20 million to over four years. It's clear that they want Henry to remain in the role he was last year, which netted him 11.7 touches per game (ranked just 42nd among RBs). While I suspect he'll get a small bump, he's not likely to get into the 15-16-touch range, which is what's often required to finish as a top-15 running back. He's going to be touchdown-dependent, something that isn't ideal for someone who costs a third-round pick.

Derrick Henry quiet in loss to Patriots

Derrick Henry rushed 12 times for 28 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards in Saturday's loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots clearly focused on taking Henry out of the game, and the young back found little room to run. Still, his strong play last weekend and his general talent level should mean a much bigger role for him next season, regardless of if DeMarco Murray returns.
