It shouldn't shock you if Henry takes over as the lead-dog in the Titans backfield, as he's in his prime, while Murray is on the wrong side of 29. Henry averaged 4.96 yards per carry with four touchdowns over the final five weeks, while Murray averaged just 3.5 yards per carry and scored one touchdown over his final six games.

Derrick Henry has shown up to the Titans facility in great shape

Henry wasn't there on the first day of the Titans' offseason program, which is optional, but he is there now and is said to be in great shape.

Fantasy Impact

DeMarco Murray will likely enter the season as the Titans' lead back, but Derrick Henry had a promising rookie year and might eat away at more of Murray's snaps this year. With bigger backs, whether or not they show up healthy and in great shape is always a concern, so it is good to see that Henry is meeting team standards.
