LaFleur: Titans RB Derrick Henry 'earned more carries'

Tennessean - [Full Article]

“You look at these couple of games, [Derrick Henry's] definitely earned more carries,” Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur said ahead of their game against the Texans on Monday Night Football in Houston. “There’s no doubt about it.”

Fantasy Impact:

The story said during the first six games of the season, Henry had 72 carries for 240 yards, or just 3.3 yards per carry, and no touchdowns. Over the Titans last four games, though, Henry is averaging 4.3 yards per carry with four rushing touchdowns. But Henry only has 38 carries over the past four games as Lewis, who has run the ball 62 times, has taken on a featured role. This could turn into more of a split if the team really is looking to get Henry more involved.

Scouting Report

Week 15 at New York Giants

Derrick Henry had a career day last week, gaining 238 yards and four touchdowns on just 17 carries. Henry isn't going to do that again, so don't chase points. But he could be solid if he approaches 17 carries again. He has, after all, scored eight times in his past six games and the Giants have allowed 10 rushing touchdowns to running backs this season. But don't use Henry as anything more than an RB2 given the looming presence of Dion Lewis.
