Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
New Orleans is 11th against fantasy running backs this year. Carson should be a RB1 at home against a Saints team that could be behind the majority of the game without QB Drew Brees.Jacksonville is 14th against fantasy running backs, but Henry's breakout game last year that started this streak of good games was against the Jaguars when he had 238 yards rushing and 4 rushing touchdowns. He is a solid RB1 this week.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Henry has picked up right where he left off last season, producing strong RB2 value with occasional RB1 upside. He needs to be locked into all lineups, even with a tough road matchup with the Jaguars up next. That said, neither his touchdown output nor his receiving production look particularly sustainable, so he could be a good sell-high candidate at the moment.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Carson averages 23 more rushing yards at home and is always a good start at home. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 The last time Henry played against the Jaguars, his owners were likely rewarded with a win after he rushed for 238 yards and four touchdowns. It's important to remember that it did come in Week 14 when the Jaguars had packed it in for the year, but it's still noteworthy. Their first meeting didn't go nearly as well, as he rushed for just 57 yards on 18 carries and didn't score. The silver lining here is that the Titans are remaining true to what they said about riding Henry this year. Of the 47 touches by Titans running backs this year, Henry has 37 of them, a 78.7 percent share. That number last year was just 51.3 percent. The Jaguars defense has allowed exactly 4.65 yards per carry in each of their first two games, while allowing both the Chiefs and Texans running backs to rush for more than 100 yards, which included fellow power-back Carlos Hyde and his 90 yards on 20 carries last week. Those are very respectable numbers for Hyde who doesn't have anywhere close to Henry's breakaway speed. Henry's seemingly high-touch floor with his breakaway potential combine to equal a solid RB2 in fantasy with an RB1 ceiling.
