The good news is that the Titans are 2-0 and Henry leads the league in rushing attempts. The bad news is that he hasn't scored through two weeks and has caught just three passes for 15 yards. That currently has him sitting at RB25 on the season in PPR formats, right behind Myles Gaskin. It's disappointing to see him not crush Jacksonville, a team that he dismantled last year, but that's why they play the game, right? The vitals are good for Henry and things would look a bit different if he'd scored. The Vikings were a threating defense in recent history, but not so much anymore. The biggest losses to their run defense this offseason were defensive tackle Linval Joseph and edge rusher Everson Griffin, which hurt, but they just lost linebacker Anthony Barr last week to a torn pectoral injury. Even with him on the field, the Vikings defense has allowed 280 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns over the first two weeks. Heck, even going back to last year, they allowed five different running backs to surpass 100 yards on the ground. This is no longer a matchup to be worried about. Keep him in lineups as your RB1; he'll get back on track.We've now seen two different gamescripts for the Browns, and they've given us clarity on how the backfield will be handled under Kevin Stefanski. Chubb is the preferred early-down option, especially in positive gamescripts, while Hunt is the preferred pass-catching back who'll get double-digit carries if they run the ball 25-plus times. Through two games, this backfield has averaged 32.0 touches per game. Funny enough, the Vikings running backs averaged 32.5 under Kevin Stefanski last year. Against Washington, we should see them rack up the carries, though there have been warning signs about efficiency in this matchup. Under Ron Rivera, this unit has allowed just 0.56 PPR points per opportunity to running backs, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in football through two weeks. A big part of that is due to them being one of just four teams who've yet to allow a touchdown to running backs. Now, to be fair, they played a Miles Sanders-less Eagles team in Week 1 and then Kyler Murray rushed for two touchdowns in Week 2, so we can't automatically assume they're rock stars that you can't run the ball against. Chubb and Hunt are tied, leading the league with 4.4 yards after contact, so getting to them isn't all you have to do; you still must bring them down. In a game they should be able to run the ball 30-plus times, you have to start these two. Chubb is the preferred option due to the positive gamescript and has double the carries Hunt does inside the five-yard-line, so start him as a low-end RB1. Hunt is still a fine backend RB2 play given the projected gamescript.

Henry saw his typical and insane workload last week, but he took a backseat to Tannehill throwing four touchdowns. That won't be the norm moving forward and Henry should be viewed as a safe RB1 start every single week. Against a Vikings defense that is currently surrendering an average of 22.5 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs, Henry's in a prime spot to finish as a top option in week three.Chubb showed everyone what he can do when he gets a significant workload this past week and he shredded the Cincinnati Bengals defense. This Washington run defense is a slightly better unit than Cincinnati, so we can't expect multiple touchdowns again from Chubb. However, he's still a solid RB2 start in this matchup with upside.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Vikings are just 20th against fantasy running backs, Henry should be a solid RB1 on the road against a struggling Vikings D.Washington has allowed the fewest points to fantasy running backs, but that should change this week when they take on a very tough Browns running game.
