Ravens Offense To Take On A Different Look With Derrick Henry

With running back Derrick Henry joining the Baltimore Ravens offense this offseason, they will have a new look in 2024. Quarterback Lamar Jackson won his second MVP award in 2023 with career-highs in passing yards (3,678) and completion percentage (67.2%). He also led all QBs with 821 rushing yards, and his ability to stress opposing defenses with his rushing ability is something the Ravens don't want to go away. With five 1,000-yard rushing seasons and almost 10,000 career yards, Henry is the most accomplished RB Jackson has played with. "I don't see us going towards like [a] specific offense that runs those more than anybody else. RPOs will be a part of what we're doing, for sure, but they're not going to be the main part of what we're doing," head coach John Harbaugh said. Although Henry is on the backside of his career, he'll continue to have RB1 appeal in fantasy in Baltimore's offense, but his presence could mean fewer designed runs for Jackson.

Derrick Henry Signing Two-Year Deal With Ravens

Free-agent running back Derrick Henry is expected to sign a two-year, $16 million deal worth up to $20 million with the Baltimore Ravens, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter. King Henry is set to be a full-fledged workhorse in Baltimore's offense, as J.K. Dobbins is a free agent, Gus Edwards signed with the Los Angeles Chargers, and Keaton Mitchell is coming off a late-season torn ACL. The four-time Pro Bowler and former 2,000-yard rusher posted 1,167 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns in one of the worst offenses in the NFL last year. Paired with Lamar Jackson and a superior offensive line, he could be set up for yet another 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown campaign. His receiving upside will be limited with Jackson, but that hasn't been a strength of his anyway. Despite recently turning 30 years old, an RB1 season in fantasy football is well within reach in 2024.

Ravens, Derrick Henry Have Mutual Interest

Both the Baltimore Ravens and free-agent running back Derrick Henry have mutual interest in working something out, according to a source, but an agreement still needs to be reached. Henry wasn't never expected to re-sign with the Tennessee Titans, and that especially won't be the case now that Tony Pollard has joined the Titans. Besides, at this point in his career, King Henry wants to play for a contender, and the Titans don't qualify. The Ravens certainly do, though, and they just lost Gus Edwards to the Los Angeles Chargers in free agency on Monday, so Henry makes a ton of sense for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. Henry isn't getting any younger and is probably past his prime, but he could do some serious damage on the ground alongside quarterback Lamar Jackson if he were to join the Ravens.

Titans Not In On Derrick Henry

The Tennessee Titans are not in on re-signing running back Derrick Henry, which was backed up by the fact that they have reached a verbal agreement to sign free-agent running back Tony Pollard on Monday. The Titans also checked out D'Andre Swift before he agreed with the Chicago Bears. After signing Pollard, they are fully expected to muscle up on the offensive line and receiver positions in free agency. Henry was never really expected to be much of an option to return to Tennessee with a new regime in town. The 30-year-old four-time Pro Bowler had over 1,000 rushing yards for the fifth time in the last six years in 2023, adding 12 rushing touchdowns in 17 games. He may be past his prime heading into his age-30 campaign, but he still has the ability to put up RB1 numbers in fantasy, especially if he goes to a contending team like the Texans or Eagles.

Derrick Henry Not Expected To Remain A Titan

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry isn't expected to remain with the Titans. Although this isn't a new revelation, it reinforces what has appeared to be in the works for quite some time. The 30-year-old has been a potent presence for fantasy managers, running for 9,502 yards and 90 touchdowns off 2,030 carries in 119 regular season games. During that span, he added 155 catches for 1,458 yards and three touchdowns. It's important to note that while Henry isn't young, he finished the 2023-24 campaign by surpassing the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the fifth time in his career. Even better, he stayed healthy. Nonetheless, Fowler added that the door isn't closed for Henry to remain in Tennessee, considering the team has the money. However, the All-Pro wants a ring, meaning it may benefit him to go elsewhere. But fantasy managers shouldn't dismiss him completely, no matter where he ends up, especially since he could have a few more productive years left.

Derrick Henry Unlikely To Return To Titans

While it's unlikely that the Tennessee Titans re-sign impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry this offseason, they aren't completely closing the door on his return yet. A four-year, $50 million deal Henry signed with the Titans in 2020 is set to expire when the new league year opens on March 13. The 30-year-old isn't getting any younger, but he still managed 1,167 rushing yards (second in the NFL) in 2023 behind a subpar offensive line. Henry is chasing a Super Bowl ring at this point in his career, and he'll have a better chance at that somewhere besides Tennessee. In addition, under new head coach Brian Callahan, the Titans figure to be more of a passing offense. The four-time Pro Bowler and former Offensive Player of the Year in 2020 has lots of miles on his body and could begin to start breaking down as he enters his 30s. But in the right situation in 2024, he could still find RB1 appeal in fantasy.

Titans Won't Use Franchise Tag On Derrick Henry

The Tennessee Titans won't use their franchise tag on impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry this year, according to league sources. With a new coaching staff coming in this offseason, it wasn't expected that the Titans would make much of an effort to retain King Henry as he heads into his age-30 season. The former second-rounder in 2016 out of Alabama has been a Pro Bowler in four of the last five seasons, although he showed some signs of decline in 2023. He had a league-high 280 carries for 1,167 yards (career-low-tying 4.2 yards per carry) and 12 touchdowns, adding 28 catches for 214 yards and no touchdowns as a pass-catcher. Henry may not age gracefully, but he should still have plenty of fantasy appeal in 2024 with a contending team.

Derrick Henry Wants To Play For Contender

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry isn't shutting the door on a return to the Titans, but he also wants to play for a contender. "I'll always be a Titan, even if I don't come back. At the end of the day, I want to win the Super Bowl. Wherever that is that gives me the best chance, that's what I want to do. I don't have no bad blood or feel no type of way if I'm not back. It's just what was supposed to happen. The story is already written, we're all just living it," Henry said. With the Titans heading into a rebuilding phase after firing head coach Mike Vrabel, it's highly unlikely Henry comes back to Tennessee. The 30-year-old four-time Pro Bowler had five 1,000-yard seasons in his time with the Titans and said he still feels "like I can run for another 2,000."

Derrick Henry Rips Off 153 Rushing Yards In Season Finale

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 19 times for 153 yards and a touchdown in the Week 18 upset win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was Henry's highest rushing total of the year, and his 8.1 yards per carry was his highest clip since December of the 2020 season. It was an excellent performance for the running back, who just turned 30 years old this week. Henry's contract expires this offseason, so Sunday's win could have been his last game as a member of the Titans organization.

Derrick Henry Looks To Finish Strong In Potential Last Game With Titans

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has had plenty of down weeks this season, yet he still ranks eighth in total half-PPR among ball carriers this season. He has finished as a top-ten weekly running back seven times this year, but he's also finished outside the top-35 running backs on six occasions. Needless to say, he's a boom-or-bust fantasy option in the season finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Jacksonville presents a neutral matchup for running backs, so Henry is likely worth starting in traditional fantasy leagues. His upside this season hasn't made him a strong DFS option, though. Sunday's outing could be Henry's final game as a Tennessee Titan, so it'll be interesting to see if he goes out strong with a vintage performance.

Derrick Henry Struggles Again In Week 17

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 12 times for 42 yards and did not catch his lone target in the Week 17 loss to the Houston Texans. The 29-year-old did surpass 1,000 rushing yards on Sunday, but he is averaging a career-low 3.9 yards per carry. It was yet another disappointing performance for a player who used to dominate late in the season for fantasy managers. Next week, he'll face the Jacksonville Jaguars in what could be his last game in a Titans uniform.

Derrick Henry Looking For Revenge Against Texans In Week 17

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry notably had a disastrous Week 15 showing against the Houston Texans, rushing 16 times for nine yards and catching four passes for one yard. In Week 17, he'll get a chance to seek revenge against the Houston defense. The Texans have been a neutral matchup for running backs this season, but the Tennessee offensive line has been one of the worst units in the NFL. Although Henry's floor is clearly low, he still has mid-range RB2 value due to his hefty workload. He's a touchdown-or-bust option, but he has 11 rushing scores this year.

Derrick Henry Throws And Runs For A Touchdown In Week 16

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 19 times for 88 yards and a touchdown, caught one pass for 11 yards, and threw a 12-yard touchdown in the Week 16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It was a bounce-back performance for the 29-year-old who posted under 20 yards on 20 touches in Week 15. Despite his low floor and a tough matchup against the Houston Texans next week, he remains a must-start due to his hefty workload. He remains a solid touchdown-or-bust fantasy option.

Derrick Henry In Bounce-Back Spot Against Seahawks

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry had one of the worst games of his career last week, posting just 15 total yards on 20 touches. The Titans' offensive line was dominated against the Houston Texans, and there was little running room for the 240-pound back to get things going. In Week 16, he'll face a Seattle Seahawks team that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to running backs this season. He should be able to bounce back from his disastrous Week 15 showing, so he has a low-end RB1 outlook this week. Henry's floor is as low as it has been in his stellar career, but fantasy production is tough to come by at running back, and he should continue to have a busy workload.

Derrick Henry Posts 10 Yards On 20 Touches

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 16 times for nine yards and caught four passes for one yard in the Week 15 loss to the Houston Texans. Henry had rushed for at least 200 yards in four of his last five games against Houston, so this was a disastrous performance in the first round of the fantasy football playoffs. The 29-year-old has had several down weeks this season, as the Titans' offensive line has continued to struggle. All that said, he remains a must-start against the Seattle Seahawks next week. Seattle has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to running backs this year, and Henry is still getting a healthy workload consistently.

Derrick Henry Looks To Continue Touchdown Streak In Week 15

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was held to just 2.0 yards per carry in last week's win over the Miami Dolphins, but he scored two rushing touchdowns. The former rushing champion has scored two touchdowns in three straight games, so he remains a must-start fantasy option. Despite Tyjae Spears logging 33 touches over the last two games, Henry has found a way to produce for fantasy managers. The Houston Texans are just a neutral matchup for running backs, so keep the King in lineups for this AFC South contest.

Derrick Henry Finishes Rally With Late Score

It was tough sledding all night long for Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry in Monday's astonishing 28-27 road win over the Miami Dolphins, rushing 17 times for 34 yards with one reception for 17 yards. Henry helped send fantasy managers and Titans fans home happy, however, with two short touchdown plunges. The first of which arrived to cap off a long scoring drive in the second quarter, but the second came to complete Tennessee's unlikely 14-point comeback on their final drive late during the fourth period. Change-of-pace back Tyjae Spears notably chewed up 89 yards on six catches through the air in the face of negative game script, which remains a weekly risk for Henry's fantasy managers if the Titans fall behind. Speaking of chewing up yards through the air, Breece Hall just tagged the Houston Texans defense, who Henry will square off with in Week 15, for eight catches and 86 yards in this area in Week 14.

Derrick Henry A Touchdown-Or-Bust Play In Week 14

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has posted two straight games of two rushing touchdowns, putting himself back in RB1 territory for fantasy football. However, he has been an outright bust when the Titans are facing big deficits. In three games in which the Titans have lost by multiple scores, Henry has averaged just 3.5 PPR fantasy points per game. The Dolphins are nearly two-touchdown favorites on Monday night, making Henry a shakier fantasy option than usual. He's still worth starting in case Tennessee surprisingly puts up a fight, but Tyjae Spears could take a big chunk of his workload if they are in "come from behind" mode. It's also worth noting that Miami has allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs this year.

Derrick Henry Should Be Good To Go For Week 14

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was given his typical rest day in the first practice of the week on Thursday, and he was not listed with any injury after being examined for a concussion late in Sunday's overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The 29-year-old hasn't had any concussion symptoms since and is on track to suit up in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. Before leaving Sunday's game, King Henry had his third 100-yard game of 2023 and added his third and fourth rushing touchdowns in the last two weeks. Negative game script could very well be coming his way against the high-octane offense of the Dolphins, but Henry should be active and serve as the Titans' clear lead back over rookie Tyjae Spears.

Derrick Henry Not In Concussion Protocol

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel clarified on Monday that running back Derrick Henry (head) is not in the league's concussion protocol. It was reported earlier on Monday that Henry was in the protocols after suffering a head injury in the Week 13 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. It's good news for King Henry, but it's still concerning that he never returned to the game, and his status for Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins next Monday could be in question. The good news is the bruising running back had a highly productive game before his injury, rushing 21 times for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Rookie Tyjae Spears had a season-high 16 carries for 75 yards against Indy and is deserving of a waiver-wire pickup this week, especially if you have Henry rostered.
