Despite every argument being made that eventually Henry's workload will catch up with him, he's getting better. He's seen his rushing yards increase from 1059 to 1539 to 2027 over the past three seasons. Additionally, he's seen his rushing touchdowns also spike from 12 to 16 to 17 over that same time span. He's proven himself as one of the best and most consistent RBs in the entire league and there's very little reason to start doubting him anytime soon. Until we actually see the wheels fall off of Henry, there's no reason we shouldn't draft him as a top-5 option at the position in fantasy football. The receiving upside isn't there, but you don't need that when you can put up the type of rushing totals that Henry can.

Derrick Henry is held to 40 yards rushing in loss to Ravens

Derrick Henry carried the ball 18 times for 40 yards in the team's wild-card round loss to the Ravens. He added three receptions for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The Ravens dominated the line of scrimmage and was able to hold Henry to his lowest yardage total of the season. The 27-year-old running back will remain under contract with the Titans in 2021 and will be a top pick in most fantasy drafts.
