TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Indianapolis Colts

Derrick Henry was the more effective runner last week against the Steelers, gaining 32 yards on 7 carries, but 16 came on one run. And he failed to catch a pass while being out-touched 15-7 by DeMarco Murray. There could be enough yards to go around in this game against a soft Indianapolis defense. But that probably makes Henry a FLEX play with upside given his workload.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Pittsburgh Steelers

Derrick Henry had a solid day, gaining 52 yards on his 11 carries last week, but he did not catch a pass, making it an "eh" day. Henry has caught just 6 passes all season, so he's not going to give you much there. And DeMarco Murray continues to out-touch him—last week it was 18-11. That makes Henry a flex play.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Derrick Henry got just 8 carries—one fewer than DeMarco Murray— last week and gained 26 yards. He salvaged the day with a touchdown, though. He also had 2 catches for 10 yards but had 10 touches to 11 for Murray. This is a timeshare of the worst kind. There's no real rhyme or reason. Henry is a flex play.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Baltimore Ravens

After a 131-yard rushing game three weeks ago, Henry squandered a chance to unseat DeMarco Murray as the lead back by rushing for 13 yards on 13 carries against the Browns in Week 7. He should get enough touches to be used as a flex play this week. But he's not ready to take over the job from Murray just yet.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Cleveland Browns

Henry got equal snaps with DeMarco Murray last week and responded with 19 carries for a career-high 131 yards and a score. He also had 1 catch for 19 yards, giving him 20 touches to 16 for Murray. And Murray is dealing with a hamstring injury. If Murray doesn't play or is gimpy, don't be afraid to use Henry as an RB1. If Murray is a full go at practice Friday, given the recent usage, Henry is more of a low-end RB2/flex play in non-PPR leagues. His value is a little less in PPR formats.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Indianapolis

Derrick Henry carried the ball only 4 times last week, rushing for a putrid 9 yards. Head coach Mike Mularkey said he needs to use the second-year back more. That is the way things had been trending. But even with a handful more carries, Henry is only worth using as a flex play.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Miami Dolphins

Derrick Henry managed just 7 yards on his 6 rushing attempts last week in what was a dog game for the entire Tennessee offense. His carries, however, were just one fewer than DeMarco Murray. Henry has forced this into a timeshare, which is good news for those who own Henry. But it also means he's not going to get enough work to be used as anything more than a flex play in most weeks.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Houston Texans

After his big day two weeks ago, Henry got more of a 50-50 split in terms of carries with DeMarco Murray last week, getting 13 compared to 14 for Murray. That added up to 53 yards for Henry, who also had 1 catch for 10 yards. But he played in just 29-of-73 snaps, so buyer beware here. This is turning into a fantasy mess as a timeshare. But at least Henry is getting enough work now to use as a solid flex play.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Seattle Seahawks

Derrick Henry might not have Wally Pipped DeMarco Murray just yet, but he's getting closer after a 14-carry, 92-yard effort last week with a score with Murray sidelined with a tight hamstring. Mike Mularkey expects Murray to play this week, but if he doesn't, bump Henry up against Seattle's defense, which got gashed on the ground last week. If Murray does play, Henry might have earned a little more playing time, making this more of a true time share in which neither is worth more than a low-end No. 2 RB start. The water is getting muddy in Nashville.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Derrick Henry carried the ball only 6 times for 25 yards last week, as DeMarco Murray played 73% of the snaps. That's what you can look forward to from Henry, as Murray will continue to get the bulk of the action as long as he's healthy. Henry shouldn't be in your lineup.
