This was the next domino to fall after Tennessee re-signed Ryan Tannehill. Derrick Henry is coming off a career year of 1,746 combined yards and 18 touchdowns. The 26-year old is currently being drafted as RB6 in the first round in early best-ball drafts and with Dion Lewis out of the way, he could possibly not get game-scripted off the field in 2020.
TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Houston Texans
Derrick Henry sat out last week's meaningless game to rest his hamstring injury but will be back this week. The issue should be better, but hamstrings can be tricky. He had 21 carries for 86 yards and failed to score two weeks ago against the Texans, which was actually his worst game since early November. He's been that good. Something along those lines would seem to be his floor. But because he doesn't catch many passes, he's touchdown-dependent for big weeks. Despite that, he's a low-end RB1 play this week.
