He's now totaled 599 rushing yards over the last four games, as he's plowing through whatever team is in his path. He had to leave the game for a short amount of time last week with a hamstring issue, which is something that caused him to miss practice time last week. It's something worth monitoring, but knowing he returned to the game - and played well - we should proceed as if he's okay. The Texans have the reputation of being a good run defense but let me clear that up… they're not. On the season, they're allowing 0.97 PPR points per opportunity, which ranks as the third-highest mark behind only the Panthers and Jaguars, two teams you'd love to play Henry against. They've allowed just the ninth-fewest points on the ground to running backs, but that's due to teams failing to stick to the run, as they've allowed a healthy 4.41 yards per carry. The Titans have averaged 25.0 carries per game between Henry and Dion Lewis over the last four games, so they likely won't have that issue. There have been four running backs who've totaled 20 touches against the Texans, and their finishes have been RB1, RB2, RB6, and RB9. As long as Henry is playing, you're playing him as an RB1. The idea in DFS cash games is to limit risk, and if Henry were to miss more practice time this week, it might be wise to find a safer solution.
