Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While Christian McCaffrey had a massive game last week against New Orleans, it could've been even more impressive than Derrick Henry's performance. CMC was brought down at the one or two yard line on multiple occasions last week, which if he was just a couple feet further would've meant a ridiculous outing. At this point, there's no reason we should doubt McCaffrey finishing the season as the No. 1 fantasy football option again. He's seeing a workload like no other RB in the league and he's reminding everyone why he's truly one of - if not the - best RB in the entire NFL. Against the Houston Texans that saw Nick Chubb rumble for 95 yards and a score on them last week, CMC's back in the RB1 spot in my weekly rankings.Welcome back, Derrick Henry! After being stonewalled in week one, Henry came back with a vengeance in week two and posted the second-highest fantasy point total of his career. The only game that Henry scored more fantasy points in was against Jacksonville in 2018 where he had 17 carries for 238 yards and four touchdowns. Henry was spectacular in week two and he appears to be back to dominating on the ground, but there's an interesting wrinkle moving forward. Henry saw the highest target total of his NFL career with six targets and he reeled in all of them for 55 total receiving yards. With a narrow receiving tree in Tennessee, there's a path for Henry to continue to be involved as a receiver moving forward. If that does happen, Henry has overall RB1 upside each and every week. It's a tougher matchup against the Indianapolis Colts defensive front, but Henry's a no-brainer top-5 option this week.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 Fresh off an overall RB1 performance in Week 2's victory over Seattle, Henry looks poised to be a top-5 play once again. We all knew he would see a heavy volume of carries, but his work as a receiver has really put him over the top thus far. Through two games, he has nine receptions on 10 targets. To put into perspective just how massive that is for his fantasy value, Henry's previous career high in receptions is 19 from a season ago. If his work as a receiver out of the backfield continues at this steady pace, an overall RB1 finish for the season certainly isn't out of the question.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
He's currently second in RB fantasy scoring behind Derrick Henry, even though McCaffrey has only scored one touchdown so far. (Henry has scored three.) CMC is piling up yardage as usual - 170 rushing yards, 154 receiving yards. The rushing efficiency has left something to be desired (3.8 yards per carry), but the receiving efficiency is off the charts (10.3 yards per target). This seems like a smash spot, with the Panthers favored by 8.5 points against a seemingly overmatched foe. One minor concern: McCaffrey had what he described as "onset cramps" during the Saints game and briefly went to the locker room for an IV. Could the cramping be an issue again only four days later? That seems like the only thing that could possibly slow down McCaffrey in this one.The Titans' offense was so well-designed in 2019 and 2020 that it seemed like the departure of offensive coordinator Arthur Smith couldn't possibly be a good thing for Henry. But after two games with new offensive coordinator Todd Downing, Henry not only leads the NFL in rushing with 240 yards, he also has nine catches for 74 yards. Henry is currently tied with Julio Jones for the team lead in receptions and has two more catches than A.J. Brown. (Hat tip to my friend Alex Dunlap of RosterWatch, who argued convincingly on my podcast two years ago that Henry actually has very good hands and receiving ability.) This whole pass-catching development is crazy. If the receiving production sticks, Henry could have the sort of fantasy impact LaDainian Tomlinson and Marshall Faulk had in their heyday. No, Henry won't ever be THAT prolific a pass catcher. But add some receiving value to a guy who's won the NFL rushing title two years running, and now you're cooking with gas. At $8,600, Henry is the second most expensive player in DraftKings games this week behind only Christian McCaffrey.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
McCaffrey has 59 touches in two games and the shear volume of his touches in both the rushing and passing game make him the elite option in fantasy football.Henry had 46 rushing attempts for 281 yards and 3 touchdowns in 2 games against the Colts last year. He should be an elite RB1 at home coming off a fantastic second half in Seattle.
