“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.”
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.
TEN RB Dion Lewis - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Indianapolis Colts
Dion Lewis got just six touches last week -- three carries for five yards and three receptions for 20 -- and has been largely phased out of the Tennessee offense with the emergence of Derrick Henry. Lewis is only worth using as a flex option in PPR leagues. And even at that, you're swinging and hoping.
