TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Houston Texans
Derrick Henry should be in store for all the work he can handle in Week 16 against the Texans' atrocious run defense with Ryan Tannehill injured and rookie Malik Willis likely to start under center. The Titans did not pass the ball more than 16 times in either of Willis' other two starts this season, and Henry saw a total of 49 carries in those games while racking up 343 rushing yards. Henry is already one of the league's best bets to see 20 touches at the running back position, but with a mouth-watering matchup on deck and Willis starting this week, he has a limitless ceiling for fantasy. Henry is our top-ranked running back play this week, even in PPR formats.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Los Angeles Chargers
Derrick Henry returned to the RB1 ranks in Week 14 when he logged 155 total yards and a rushing touchdown on 20 touches (17 carries and three catches). Henry ranks fourth at his position in fantasy points per game through 14 weeks, and now gets a Chargers defense that is just below average in suppressing the fantasy production of opposing running backs. Henry remains a great bet to log 20 touches this week and will have a great chance to find the end zone as the centerpiece of the Titans' offensive philosophy. Henry is once again a strong RB1 as we head into the fantasy playoffs.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
As can happen with Derrick Henry, he was game-scripted out of a large role with the Titans trailing the Eagles virtually the entire game in Week 13. Henry has some of fantasy's best usage for any player except in one scenario: the Titans falling behind early and being forced to pass. That is unlikely to happen in Week 14 when the Titans host the Jaguars' below-average run defense, meaning Henry is set up for his typical huge workload. Even with some slow weeks mixed in along the way, Henry leads the NFL in carries, is third in rushing, and has 10 touchdowns on the year. He is a surefire starter and clear RB1 in Week 14.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Philadelphia Eagles
Derrick Henry was held out of the end zone in Week 12, but he still racked up 117 total yards on 20 touches, three of those coming as receptions. Henry's fantasy finishes can be a little disappointing when he fails to score as he does not see as much receiving work as most RB1s. That being said, he remains one of the more steady backs in all of fantasy as one of the best bets in the entire league to see 20+ touches any given week. The Titans have a tough road trip to Philadelphia this week, but the Eagles actually struggle to contain opposing runners. Henry does face some game script risk this week in the event the Titans fall way behind on the scoreboard and have to abandon their run-first mentality, but he remains a strong RB1 as he should see plenty of work in any sort of competitive game.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
After a hiccup in Week 10, Derrick Henry was back to his old ways in Week 11 when he handled 30 touches and racked up 132 total yards and a rushing score, not to mention a passing touchdown on a jump pass to Austin Hooper near the goal line. Henry has now finished as a RB1 in six of his last eight games, showing the incredible floor/ceiling combination that stems from his elite combination of workload and rushing ability. Henry gets to face off with the Bengals at home this week, and Cincinnati's run defense ranks about average according to schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed. Henry is once again a no-doubt RB1 for fantasy managers and will be the focal point of the offense as usual on Sunday.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Green Bay Packers
After six straight games rushing for over 100 yards, the Broncos' elite defense held Derrick Henry to 67 total yards without a score on 19 carries and two catches. Henry remains a premier running back in both real and fantasy football, but he is more dependent on game script than other elite backs. Henry only played 58% of the snaps against the Broncos, which is a lower share than you would expect from a workhorse of Henry's caliber. Henry does get an easier matchup this week against a Packers defense that is middle-of-the-pack against opposing running games. With no workload concerns and a decent matchup on deck, Henry is once again a solid RB1 for fantasy managers in Week 11.

TEN RB Derrick Henry - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Denver Broncos
Derrick Henry enters Week 10 fresh off his latest rampage, where he racked up 115 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground against the Chiefs. That yardage total is actually Henry's lowest since Week 2 when he was held to 25 yards against the Bills. Henry is getting massive weekly workloads and knows what to do with them as evidenced by him finishing as a fantasy RB1 in five of his last six games. Henry will have to deal with a solid Broncos run defense this week, but the game sets up well for him in the sense that it should be a low-scoring, run-heavy affair which locks Henry into a massive volume projection. Henry is once again a surefire RB1 for fantasy managers this week.
