Draft note
by John Paulsen
After finishing 16th (PPR) in 2018, Henry was the No. 5 running back in 2019. After a strong finish to 2018 and a rip-roaring 2019 campaign, Henry is averaging 22.7 touches for 128 total yards (5.44 YPC) and 1.23 touchdowns in his last 22 games, including the postseason. As long as the Tennessee rushing attack doesn’t take a massive step back, Henry should return first-round value. They lost T Jack Conklin via free agency but replaced him with first-rounder Isaiah Wilson in the draft. Henry lacks a large passing game role, which certainly lowers his floor if the touchdowns start to dry up.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
What a bust-out year it was for Derrick Henry, as he led the NFL in rushing with over 1,500 yards on 303 carries, averaging 5.1 yards-per-attempt. He also scored 18 times, after totaling 23 in his first three NFL seasons. As the workhorse, Henry rushed for 100 yards on six occasions, including five of the final six contests to help the Titans qualify for the playoffs. His combination of size and speed makes him a load to bring down.

Fantasy Downside
You’ve got to wonder about the toll all those touches did on Henry last year. Counting the playoffs, he had a combined 409, so some will worry about him breaking down as the ’20 season wears on. Possibly more worrisome is his lack of involvement in the passing attack, especially if the Titans find themselves behind by multiple scores, as Henry has never caught even 20 passes in a season. Tennessee selected Darrynton Evans in the third-round and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Henry sees a reduced workload to keep him as fresh as possible.

Bottom Line
In Arthur Smith’s grind-it-out offensive approach Henry is the perfect back. After taking over as Tennessee’s No. 1 back the past two seasons, the 26-years-old has totaled 2,599 yards on the ground and 30 total touchdowns. If he’s able to make it through all 16 games, he’ll be the favorite to lead the NFL in rush attempts, yards and scores. Heck, he did all of that in ’19 in just 15 games. Playing under a new four-year deal, he should be primed for another stellar season.
