Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Henry looked fantastic last week. He ran for over 200 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns. That said, Henry managers shouldn't expect the same level of production out of him against the Steelers. Pittsburgh gives up the third-fewest points per game to opposing rushers (14.9), and they rank first in defensive efficiency against the run. You should always start your studs, but Henry is someone to avoid in DFS. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Coming off a monstrous performance, Henry is a no-brainer start every single week as a top-tier option. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We talked about it being a smash-spot last week against the Texans, and Henry delivered when he pummeled their defense for 264 total yards and two touchdowns. The matchup aligned so well for his strengths, their weaknesses, and play-calling tendencies. Unfortunately, this matchup with the Steelers is brutal. They've not only allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs, but they've faced the lowest weighted opportunity in the league, and it's not even close. Opposing teams of running backs are averaging just 20.2 touches per game against them, so even if Henry totaled 85 percent of the Titans touches (like he has this year), he'd be looking at 17 touches against a team that's allowed 3.22 yards per carry on the year. It doesn't help that the Steelers opponents have averaged a minuscule 58.8 plays per game, as the Titans are used to running 68.4 plays per game. There has been one running back who's broken the 100 total yards barrier against them over their last 22 games. No, I'm not just talking about rushing yards. Total yards. One running back in 22 games. Miles Sanders was the first running back to finish as a top-12 option against them since 2018, and it took a long 74-yard touchdown run to get there. We don't have a history to go off with Henry versus the Steelers, as he's played them just once in 2017, and that was when he was the backup to Demarco Murray. You're starting Henry because you're never sitting him, but it's a week where you're going to need one of those signature long runs in order for him to hit RB1 territory, as running backs just don't grind it out against the Steelers. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Steelers are 2nd against fantasy running backs, but this will be one of their toughest tests of the season.
