Derrick Henry - Fantasy Football Scouting Reports

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Derrick Henry has been more potent than Dion Lewis of late, but that still added up to just 10 carries for 40 yards and a score, and two catches for five yards last week. He did have 18 carries for 57 yards in the first meeting with the Jaguars earlier this season, but there are far better running back options available this week. Henry is a flex-option play, at best, this week.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. N.Y. Jets

Derrick Henry had eight carries for 30 yards last week and now has run the ball 28 times for 134 yards in his past three games while Dion Lewis has 89 yards on 37 carries. He faces a Jets defense that has given up 388 rushing yards to opposing backs the past two games, so there's some hope here with Henry. But it's a swing for the fences given the workload distribution. Henry is at least worth a flex play this week given the matchup.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Houston Texans

Derrick Henry was one of the few bright spots for the Titans last week, gaining 46 yards on nine carries in a blowout loss to the Colts. The Texans have allowed four rushing touchdowns to running backs in their past three games, so there's a chance he gets into the end zone. But a shaky quarterback situation makes Henry not worth using. He had 18 carries for 56 yards against the Texans in a meeting earlier this season.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Indianapolis Colts

Once again, Derrick Henry got out-touched by Dion Lewis by a 2-1 margin last week, but he did manage 58 rushing yards and two touchdowns to salvage the day. You can't count on that every week, however, and this game against Indianapolis looks once again like a Lewis day. Though they have been run on a bit, the Colts have allowed just four rushing touchdowns to running backs this season. And Henry has to score to maximize his fantasy value. He's a flex play this week.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. New England Patriots

Derrick Henry had just eight touches compared to 24 touches for Dion Lewis. That's 1/3 of the touches, though he did produce a touchdown on his six carries. Henry loses a lot of value -- what little he had remaining -- with this kind of workload. You can hope for a vulture touchdown. But hope is not a plan.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Dallas Cowboys

There's not a lot to say here. Derrick Henry's usage hasn't evolved, though he's gotten double-digit carries in all but two games. But he hasn't done much with them. And Dion Lewis has looked better. Henry should not be in your lineup.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Los Angeles Chargers

Derrick Henry put up season lows last week with seven carries for 21 yards. Then again, nobody on the Titans offense will put anything on the team highlight film from last week's game. The Chargers have limited opposing running games to 95 yards or fewer in every game but one this season, and have given up just two rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs. Henry is not a strong play in any role this week, especially given his role in this offense.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Baltimore Ravens

Derrick Henry got 11 carries for 56 yards last week in perhaps his most effective day running the ball in terms of production per touch. Baltimore will provide a stiff test this week and is allowing just 3.7 yards per carry to opposing backs. Henry shouldn't be in your lineup this week -- especially in PPR leagues -- when there are just so many more safe options available.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Buffalo Bills

Derrick Henry got eight carries for 24 yards last week as the Titans pretty much abandoned their rushing attack and went after the Eagles through the air. Henry should be back in double digits in carries again this week and faces a Buffalo defense that has given up five touchdowns to running backs on the ground. Henry should be used as a flex-option this week.
