Titans plan to 'ride' RB Derrick Henry in contract year

Longtime Titans beat reporter Jim Wyatt: "In five games in the month of December, Henry’s rushing totals included 97 carries for 625 yards and eight touchdowns. Henry set a franchise record with 238 yards in a game vs. the Jaguars, and he piled up 170 yards a week later in a win over the Giants. His 625 yards were the most by any NFL player in any calendar month in 2018. So what will Henry do for an encore? Well, OC Arthur Smith said he intends to ride Henry, who is headed into the final year of his contract."

Fantasy Impact: 

The plan is for Derrick Henry to take over the lead role in Tennessee much like he did to end the 2018 season, but those are lofty expectations. The good news is that the Titans seem more intent than in the past to push Henry as the no doubt bell cow back and with Henry looking for a contract, he'll have the motivation to couple with increased opportunity.
