TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 at Indianapolis Colts
To put Derrick Henry's absurd 2021 into perspective, fantasy managers were disappointed in his Week 7 performance where he "only" racked up 102 total yards, yet still managed to find the endzone by throwing a touchdown on a jump-pass in the first quarter against the Chiefs. Of course, we can't count on passing touchdowns to bolster Henry's floor every week, but the fact of the matter is he's running as hot as any player in fantasy not named Cooper Kupp right now. Henry will get a tough matchup against a stout Colts run defense in Week 8, but opponents barely matter for Henry in fantasy as he is guaranteed the get amongst the largest workloads in the entire league every week and continues to find the endzone with startling consistency, whether that be on the ground or, apparently, with his arm. Through seven weeks, Henry is averaging over 26 fantasy points per game in full PPR and should be a foundational piece of lineups on a weekly basis.
