FantasyPros
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.The Seahawks have allowed the most points to fantasy running backs over the first two weeks of the season, Cook should be an elite RB1 option at home.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Dalvin Cook appears to have escaped from last week's matchup without a major injury and should be all systems go for this matchup against Seattle. Cook's coming off of a 130 rushing yard performance himself and now gets to take on the defense that just run for 182 yards against them. Cook's a top-tier option yet again for this matchup.
