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. He's likely to finish as a top-20 running back, but know that the ride will be somewhat bumpy.

Derrick Henry is ready for the new Tennessee offense

Derrick Henry said the new Tennessee offense is built around outside-zone running plays, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Fantasy Impact

The Titans have a new offensive coordinator in Matt LaFleur who runs schemes with an outside zone. The new style should not affect Henry too much. The bigger block to his fantasy value in DIon Lewis who he expects to share carries with. If Lewis cannot stay healthy then Henry could see a significant role this season and be a must-own in all fantasy leagues.
