Derrick Henry Finds End Zone Twice In Win

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 18 times for 76 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 12 win over the Carolina Panthers. It was Henry's first multi-touchdown game of the 2023 season, and he took advantage of the struggling Panthers' run defense. The 29-year-old now has six rushing scores on the season, so hopefully, he can get hot down the stretch for fantasy managers. Next up for Henry is a home game against the Indianapolis Colts. As long as the Titans can keep games competitive, he should continue to see a healthy workload.

Derrick Henry Logs A Full Practice, Good To Go For Week 12

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (ankle) got in a full practice on Friday and is ready to go Sunday's Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. Henry started the week off with a limited session but logged back-to-back full practices on Thursday and Friday. Henry has struggled over the last two weeks, totaling just 62 yards on 21 carries (2.95 YPC) to along with just two catches for two yards. He has a better matchup this week against Carolina but the Titans' offense has looked pretty bad over the last month. He has a chance to right the ship but only if the Titans can stay in a positive/neutral game script, which is certainly possible against a struggling Panthers team. He is a mid-level RB2 for Week 12.

Derrick Henry Managing Ankle Injury

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (ankle) was listed as a limited practice participant on the first practice report of Week 12 on Wednesday. Henry's ankle injury isn't believed to be serious, but he did on just over half of the team's 40 offensive snaps in the Week 11 blowout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The 29-year-old is likely just being given some extra rest before this Sunday's tilt versus the Carolina Panthers. Negative game script has certainly been hurting King Henry, but he's also slowing down a bit as he approaches 30 years of age. All signs point to Henry being fine for the Week 12 contest as he looks to bounce back from two straight disappointing performances in which he was held to 62 total rushing yards. He'll be on the RB1/2 borderline as long as he's active.

Derrick Henry Posts Week 11 Dud

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed ten times for 38 yards and caught one pass for six yards in the Week 11 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Henry has now two straight games of fewer than 40 rushing yards, and he's become a touchdown-or-bust fantasy option. The 29-year-old is playing behind the worst offensive line of his career, so don't be surprised if he has more disappointing performances down the stretch. He should be in starting lineups next week against the Carolina Panthers, who have allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to running backs this season.

Derrick Henry Still Worth Starting In Week 11

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has struggled a few times this season, posting half-PPR weekly finishes as the RB28, RB48, and RB64. However, he finished no lower than the RB13 in six of his other nine games. That said, he is still worth trusting in lineups, despite his low floor. In Week 11, he'll face the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have allowed the 15th-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs. The Jaguars defense is just a neutral matchup for Henry, so he could be in for another RB1 week. Hopefully, Will Levis will bounce back after two rough games and raise the ceiling of the Tennessee offense.

Derrick Henry Shut Down By Buccaneers

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 11 times for 24 yards and caught one pass for a loss of four yards in the Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The matchup with Tampa Bay was worrisome coming in, and it ended up being disastrous for the former rushing champion. Henry is far more matchup-dependent than he used to be, but he's still likely worth starting in most matchups given the scarcity of running back production in fantasy football. He'll look to bounce back against the Jacksonville Jaguars next week. Hopefully, Tennessee will get some of their key offensive linemen back from injury for the AFC South duel.

Derrick Henry Faces Fierce Run Defense In Week 10

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has been underwhelming at times this season, but he still ranks fifth in the NFL in rushing yards (601). He is the RB7 in half-PPR leagues through nine weeks. That said, he remains a must-start in all matchups. This week, he'll face a tough matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs this year. D'Andre Swift torched Tampa Bay for 130 yards in Week 3, but no other running back has surpassed the 67-yard mark against Todd Bowles' defense. The Buccaneers have been shredded through the air this season, but they will still likely load the box and make rookie Will Levis attempt to beat them. Again, Henry is a must-start, but don't be surprised if he has a down week in this spot.

Derrick Henry Matches Season Averages

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (ankle) yielded rock-solid results in Week 9's 24-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, rushing 17 times for 75 yards and a touchdown with three catches for 27 yards. Responsible for 33 yards on a second-quarter drive, Henry would not be denied as he lunged toward the end zone for a two-yard touchdown to give the Titans a lead. Quarterback Will Levis got the ball out just in time for the 29-year-old power back to come down with 23-yard catch-and-run, which led to a Tennessee field goal during the third period. Henry was averaging 17.1 carries for 75.1 rushing yards (4.4 YPC) over seven games entering play, and that's exactly what fantasy managers were treated to on Thursday. The three-time Pro Bowler has a tough matchup against a stout Tampa Bay Buccaneers run defense on Nov. 12, but he could warrant volume-based RB1 treatment with four of the league's top offenses on a Week 10 bye.

Derrick Henry Draws Favorable Matchup On Thursday Night

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has had a few down weeks this season, but he still ranks fifth in the NFL with 75.1 rushing yards per game (minimum five games) through eight weeks. He's also added 15 receptions for 138 yards. In Week 9, he draws a favorable matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football. Mike Tomlin's defense has surrendered the eighth-most fantasy points per game to running backs this season. They have given up seven total touchdowns to running backs and have allowed four running backs to go over 100 scrimmage yards. With rookie Will Levis making his second NFL start, expect Tennessee to feed the former rushing champion in this AFC clash, especially if DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is unavailable. He is a must-start option to begin the Week 9 slate.

Derrick Henry Limited In Tuesday's Practice

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (ankle) was limited in Tuesday's practice with an ankle injury. This is now back-to-back limited designations for Henry on the Titans' estimated injury report. With that said, this doesn't appear to be a serious enough issue to prevent Henry from suiting up on Thursday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fantasy managers should still keep tabs on his status leading up to TNF, however. Tennessee didn't end up trading their long-time workhorse prior to Tuesday's trade deadline so the Steelers can expect a full dose of Henry on Thursday.

Derrick Henry, Tyjae Spears Limited In Practice

Tennessee Titans running backs Derrick Henry (ankle) and Tyjae Spears (ankle) are both on the Week 9 injury report and were listed as limited on Monday's injury report. The Titans are likely just resting their two running backs on a short week ahead of Thursday night's clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but their statuses are worth watching the next couple of days. The 29-year-old Henry is a must-start fantasy RB when he's healthy, and he's currently the RB13 in half-PPR leagues through eight weeks. Henry is coming off a 100-yard performance in the Week 8 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Spears, 22, is a dynamic rookie backup but his fantasy value is capped due to being behind Henry. At best, Spears has been an RB3/flex option in point-per-reception formats this year.

Derrick Henry Even More Of A Long Shot To Be Traded

The unlikely chances of Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry being traded before the league's deadline on Tuesday took another hit on Monday when the deadline passed for him to restructure his contract. Henry has $5.5 million left on his deal. "I don't think it's going to happen," a source said. Something crazy could still happen, but a restructured deal would have been a clear sign that a trade of King Henry was more likely to go down. The 29-year-old should remain with Tennessee for the remainder of the 2023 season, where he will continue to be a must-start fantasy RB on a weekly basis. Henry hasn't been quite as dominant as he's been in years past, but he's currently the RB13 in half-PPR scoring through eight weeks of the season.

Derrick Henry Still Available Via Trade?

Despite reports last week that the Tennessee Titans weren't going to trade running back Derrick Henry at the Oct. 31 deadline, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer doesn't think it's completely out of the question, saying that one team told him "we still think we're in talks with them." We'll find out one way or another with the trade deadline coming on Tuesday. King Henry's value just went up after he had 22 carries for 101 yards in the Week 8 win over the Atlanta Falcons. The 29-year-old is already a must-start fantasy RB on a weekly basis, but he could be even more attractive with more upside if he's dealt to a contending team. If Henry leaves Tennessee, rookie Tyjae Spears would be a must-add off the waiver wire this week.

Derrick Henry Tops 100-Yard Mark In Week 8

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 22 times for 101 yards and caught four passes for 21 yards in the Week 8 win over the Atlanta Falcons. The former rushing champion had a solid day, but a lack of a touchdown kept his fantasy performance from being noteworthy. However, if rookie quarterback Will Levis continues to shine, the ceilings of all of the Titans' offensive players could be raised. Next up for Henry is a Thursday Night Football contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who gave up the 10th-most fantasy points per game to running backs entering Week 9. Henry remains a must-start due to his big workload.

Derrick Henry Unlikely To Be Traded

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is unlikely to be traded ahead of the October 31st deadline. The organization has decided to hang onto the Pro-Bowl back despite receiving inquires about him this season. In theory, it makes sense for the Titans to move on from the veteran back as they sit with a 2-4 record right now. He's also on the final year of his contract, so it's unknown if Henry wants to return to the Titans next season. However, it appears the Titans aren't ready to move on, but nothing is official until the deadline has passed on Tuesday.

Derrick Henry Has Bust Potential In Week 8

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has rushed 98 times for 425 yards and three touchdowns this season and is averaging 13.6 fantasy points per game in half-PPR formats. He's still been productive and is 13th among all running backs in fantasy points, but he failed to score more than 10.0 fantasy points in two of his six games. He's not as bust-proof as in years past and is at risk of posting a dud performance in Week 8. He's set to face the Atlanta Falcons, who have surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the position this year. To make things even trickier, rookie Will Levis is expected to start in the absence of Ryan Tannehill (ankle). All that said, Henry is still worth starting due to his overall touch volume.

Derrick Henry Posts 113 Yards, Touchdown In Loss

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 12 times for 97 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 16 yards in the 24-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Henry posted his most efficient game of the season, averaging 8.1 yards per carry. However, the 29-year-old isn't being given 20-plus carries on a consistent basis like he used to, so it wasn't a nuclear performance. Tennessee heads to a bye week after its defeat in London, so fantasy managers will have to find a one-week fill-in for King Henry in Week 7.

Derrick Henry Could Flop Again In Week 6

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has averaged just 3.8 yards per carry this season, posting 328 yards on 86 attempts. He has also scored just one rushing touchdown through five weeks. Needless to say, he's looked like a shell of his former self, meaning a matchup with a Baltimore Ravens in Week 6 is problematic. The Ravens are a neutral matchup for fantasy running backs thus far, but Baltimore boasts the No. 2 total defense, allowing 266.4 yards per game. Meanwhile, the Titans have racked up the ninth-fewest yards per game (293.6) this season. In an early kickoff game in London, this is likely to be an ugly, low-scoring battle. Henry likely needs to find the end zone to post a solid fantasy showing, and that's far from a guarantee on Sunday. Still, he's worth starting given his preseason cost in drafts and scarcity at the fantasy RB position.

Derrick Henry Posts 62 Yards On 16 Touches

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 13 times for 43 yards and caught all three of his targets for 19 yards in the Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The 29-year-old struggled to find running room all game and once again underwhelmed in the fantasy point column. He'll face a tough matchup with the Baltimore Ravens in London next week, but he's still a must-start due to his upside and control of the team's goal line running back role. He is just not as bust-proof as he once was.

Derrick Henry In For Another Big Day Against Colts

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has rushed for at least 103 yards in six of his last seven games against the AFC South-rival Indianapolis Colts. He has scored five touchdowns in those seven games and has the chance for another big game against its defense in Week 5. The Colts have allowed the 13th-most fantasy points to running backs this season. As long as Henry is healthy and active, he should be locked into fantasy lineups in all formats. He has a lower floor than usual in 2023, but his upside outweighs the risk of a bust performance.
