Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Conner is a little banged up, if he plays he is probably more of a RB2 at the 49ers 5th ranked fantasy running back defense.
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.Conner's season-long outlook took a hit with the news that Ben Roethlisberger will miss the rest of the season, but at least Conner's knee injury does not appear to be a major concern. Conner could see more stacked boxes and fewer scoring opportunities with Mason Rudolph under center, but it's also likely that the Steelers rely on Conner more than ever. That expected volume keeps him on the RB2 radar despite the QB and health issues and a challenging road matchup with a 49ers defense that has impressed thus far.
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.
