Bobby Sylvester

 Henry is coming off the monster game and should be trusted with even more touches as Dion Lewis continues to fade. Not only that, but Henry goes up against what may be the worst run defense in football so feel free to start him this weekend.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Henry had a game for the ages last week, piling up an absurd 238 yards and four touchdowns against a Jacksonville defense that routinely missed tackles. Henry ran for almost half as many yards - and scored almost as many TDs - in the first three quarters of this game as he had in the previous 12 games, so to say this came out of nowhere would be an understatement. He has a plus matchup with the Giants this week, but should only be viewed as a boom-or-bust, low-end RB2 when you take his entire season into consideration.
Scott Engel
RotoExperts
Has averaged 91.7 scrimmage yards in past 6 at homeNYG 27th vs RBs, so some momentum could continue, but obviously still a risk
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Cohen followed his dominant Week 13 with a tamer 89 yards on 13 touches (nine runs and four catches). Jordan Howard, who saw a bigger role in Week 1's loss to the Packers, has accrued 35 carries in the last two games. Neither one may never go down as a safe play, but Cohen is particularly risky against a team that has yielded the third-fewest catches (54) to running backs this season. While he has ultimately shown too much upside to sit, there's enough volume uncertainty to contain him to a low-end RB2 or flex choice. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 After not totaling more than 58 yards rushing in any of his last 16 games (a full NFL season), Henry explodes for 238 yards and four touchdowns? Cool. You win, fantasy football. He's been running well lately and even before that game, he'd totaled 4.57 yards per carry and four touchdowns over the previous five games. He clearly earned more carries moving forward and the matchup this week might be the best one he's had all season. The Giants have allowed 4.74 yards per carry over the six games without defensive tackle Damon Harrison, which included five teams rushing for at least 114 yards and a touchdown against them. It's not as if they played dominant run-games, either. In that time, they played the Redskins, 49ers, Bucs, Eagles, and Bears. It's difficult to say Henry is a lock to produce after his lackluster season, but he should see 12-plus carries in a plus-matchup. Consider him a middling RB2 who's not as valuable in PPR formats. Just don't assume he comes with no risk because of his big performance.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Green Bay is 15th against fantasy running backs, Cohen should be a solid RB2 this week. The Giants are 22nd against fantasy running backs, if the Titans are smart, they will look to feature Henry more coming off his monster game against Jacksonville. Henry is a boom / bust flex option.
