Are the Titans really ready to promote Henry to a workhorse role? That's doubtful considering Dion Lewis is still on the roster and they're not paying him close to $5 million this year to sit on the bench and be a cheerleader. Henry deserves more touches, that much is certain, but what happens when the Titans fall behind in a game? Lewis is far-and-away the better pass-catcher, which means Henry will be gamescript-dependent. If you believe the Titans are contenders and will finish with a winning record, that's a vote of confidence for Henry, though it's hard to say that with any confidence. He's the ultimate boom-or-bust running back, which is why he's best-suited as an RB2.

Derrick Henry being talked up by new offensive coordinator

Titans running back Derrick Henry, coming off of a season in which he rushed for 1,059 yards and 12 touchdowns on 215 carries, is being talked up by new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Smith said that the Titans plan to ride Henry.

Fantasy Impact

Riding Henry can mean a number of things. From a business side, it can mean riding him into the ground because he is in the last year of his contract and they aren't concerned about his long-term health. Or, from a strictly strategic football perspective, it could mean that they are planning to run the offense through Henry. The good news for fantasy owners is that both of these essentially mean the same thing: more touches, yards, and opportunities for a starting running back in 2019.
