Titans star RB Derrick Henry (hip) isn’t expected to play tonight. He is officially listed as doubtful and is not set to play as a precautionary step, joining many of the other Tennessee starters. He is fully expected to play in Week 18.
As was predicted throughout the week, the Titans are taking a precautionary route in a game that truly doesn't matter for their playoff-seeding implications. Hassan Haskins will take 11 career carries into this game, so we'll see if they ride him as they would if Henry were out there. Haskins is an acceptable Flex play for Championship matchups.
TEN RB Hassan Haskins - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Hassan Haskins looks set to absorb some of Derrick Henry's usual workload if the Titans' workhorse is inactive on Thursday night. Dontrell Hilliard is on IR, meaning the loss of Henry would likely result in a split backfield between Haskins and practice squad call-up Julius Chestnut against the Cowboys. With Malik Willis under center and the Titans facing off with a strong Cowboys defense, none of the Tennessee skill players outside of Henry (if active) will have much upside for fantasy in what could turn into a blowout if game script plays out as projected. If Henry ends up inactive Thursday night, Haskins makes some sense as a desperation flex option because he should see a healthy amount of carries. Otherwise, this looks like an offense to avoid entirely on Thursday for the fantasy playoffs.
